BALANCE CHANGES:

  • Speed Boost Changes – We’ve made changes to the Speed Boost percentages some parts give. The reworked values can be found in the chart below

  • Thrusters and Propellers – Larger thrusters have had a massive increase to the speed boost they now offer, as have propellers. This is to make building with them more fun and make them more viable for all robots.
  • Wheels – Wheels have had their base speeds reduced, however, their speed boost percentage now scales up towards larger versions. Previously there was very little reason to use larger wheels over the easier to hide smaller versions.
  • Wings – Wings have had their base speed reduced, however, their boost percentage now scales up towards larger versions.

“Planes will now be a lot faster, but (current) Drones are now slower too; I’m sure the Drone guys will adapt quite quickly however.” – Cluly.

  • Rotor Blades – Rotor blades have had their base speed and speed boost percentages reduced slightly. Rotors are currently very strong in the meta, this will help tone them down a little without reworking them or apply large nerfs. We’ll be keeping a close eye on the strength of these parts over the coming weeks however.
  • Skis – Skis have had their base speed increased. Blame Josh. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  • Auto Healing – Auto heal duration increased from 5 seconds to 10 seconds.

OTHER CHANGES:

  • Low-quality Ghost Module shader tweaked to be as close as possible to the high quality one
  • Improved interpolation of other player’s Robots to reduce ‘jittery’ visuals when other players move

BUG FIXES:

  • Fixed a bug which caused players to see an error message when they placed a propellor on their Robot and then entered a game mode
  • Fixed a bug which caused the end animation on the Disc Shield Module not to play
  • Fixed a bug which caused server problems for some players when destroying base crystals in Battle Arena mode
  • Fixed a bug which caused the chat window to close whenever a player changed chat channel
  • Fixed a bug which caused some players to experience overlapping Robots in garage bays when purchasing Steam Bundles
