Beta 1.9.202

Dev AndrewGarrison  1.6 years ago

Edit: New beta is available. Details here.

We just started a small beta that includes some features that didn't quite make it into the last update. Most notably the lead indicator for the guns and cannons, tracer rounds for the cannons, and a big update to Funky Trees. Also, we've upgraded Unity to a newer version in hopes that it will address some of the performance issues on Android. If you had performance issues with the latest update on your Android device, please let us know how this version is running.

The 1.9.202 beta is now available on Steam and it should be available in a few hours on Google Play and iOS.

BUG REPORTS

If you encounter any bugs, please submit a bug report here.

FEATURES

  • Added air-to-air lead predictor for guns and cannons
  • Added Tracer Rounds to Cannon

FUNKY TREES

  • Funky Trees now supports multiple types: Numbers (floating point), Booleans (true/false) and Strings (text). Values will be implicitly converted between these types if possible, for backwards compatibility, so a value of true will convert to 1 if used as if it was a number, and a value of false will be -1.
  • New literals, "string", true, and false.
  • New operators:

    • Comparison: "=", ">", ">=", "<=", "<"

    • Boolean Operators: "&" (and), "|" (or)

    • Ternary (selection) Operator: a ? b : c (essentially if a then b else c)

  • New parameters:

    • GForce (omnidirectional "force" acting on the pilot, in g)

    • VerticalG (vertical component of G)

    • SelectedWeapon (the name of the selected weapon, such as "Boom 50")

  • New functions:

    • ammo("Weapon") (where Weapon is the name of a weapon; for instance ammo("Cannon") returns the number of cannon rounds available as shown in the weapons drawer. ammo(SelectedWeapon) [note no quotes, as it's the variable not the string value] returns the ammo for the selected weapon)

  • Special functions: These are functions that have special functionality can store previous values, something not previously possible

    • rate(x): the rate of change of x.

    • sum(x): the integration of x over time.

    • smooth(x, rate): the output follows x, but only at a maximum speed of x units per second.

    • PID(target, current, p, i, d): A PID controller with the parameters p, i and d.

  • Some potential parsing bugs were fixed with - signs.
  • This shouldn't break old expressions, if it does please report to me (@WNP78)
  • activationGroup inputs now support entering FT expressions (which are taken as Boolean values)
  • Control surface and beacon light inputs now support entering FT expressions
  • Debug Command:

    • Open the dev console in level and type DebugExpression "expression" (for instance, DebugExpression "AltitudeAgl > 10").

    • Use ClearDebugExpressions to clear the list.

TWEAKS

  • Added impactDamageScalar, explosionScalar, flashSpace, and flashScale XML properties to cannon

    • flashSpace sets the simulation space for cannon muzzle flash, either "Local" or "World"

  • Updated Fine Tuner with cancel MultiSelect when no parts are selected
  • Upgraded to Unity 2018.4.18f1, which will hopefully fix some performance issues on Android

BUGS

  • Fixed IAS algorithm
  • Fixed bug breaking guns alternate firing
  • Fixed reticle persistence issue on bomb predictor
  • Fixed layer mask for part select tool
  • Fixed attach point select with finger aid
  • Fixed designer platform not instantly showing
  • Fixed a bug that prevented Trim and VTOL sliders from displaying for combined input, such as "Trim + Vtol"
  • Cannon wind sfx no longer play while paused

    A pretty good addition would be the option to change whether your vehicles are air or ground (I.e. you can make your cars show up when you open air to ground) it would make air to ground a bit more interesting than the fixed stock targets

    Can you please add trees and things on top of the ground. Could you also make an airbase that is supplied with military weapons and vehicles on the main island?

    Please add customizable tank tracks into the next update. If you're going to add a tank cannon part then it's only logical to also add a customizable tank tracks part.

    @SnoWFLakE0s Oh, that is very, very nice! Is there a way to distinguish negative and positive G?
    Also, could more parts be made compatible with Funky Trees (namely, the VTOL RCNs)?

    Did you read through? We have a debug console to do exactly that.

    Since the major 1.9 update added stuff like AngleOfAttack and now we're getting G-forces and such, can you make a readout window so we can actually know these stats and calibrate control systems and instruments properly? It would certainly be nicer than doing everything by feel, let's say.

    @RCMPCLAN Most certainly is that they have enough beta testers accomodated, thus preventing other potential testers from entering.

    Why is it saying beta is full?

    Can you add tank tracks next? Anyway, the tracers are pretty cool. XML mod the gun delay firing to 0 seconds and use tracers. It looks like some type of lazer minigun thing.

    @AndrewGarrison when cannons are introduced to some guns when you click the action group the fire button doesn’t show up or when it’s only guns they don’t show up either, will this be in the update?

    while i mirror things or Ctrl+M a part the drag points of both parts sometimes are different and thus leads to balance problems when flying

    The = operator is bugged right now and needs fixes. It will be fixed, hold tight.

    @EliteArsenals24
    .
    Hmm, mobile can't fire w/o the button onscreen, right? I think it should work, I'll try testing what you put there. Though, it might end up being just some weird GUI issue (like the VTOL or Trim bars not showing up last patch).

    The lamp should light when I select the right projectile, but this does not happen. What am I doing wrong?
    lamp input: clamp01(SelectedWeapon="APFSDS")
    Cannon name: APFSDS
    @WNP78 I was advised to ask you

    @SnoWFLakE0s since the devs are too busy, maybe you know how to fix this?

    "I am having trouble using the SelectedWeapon value. I want to set a minigun's AG to a selected weapon so I simply input SelectedWeapon("Cannon") so when I select the cannon the gun will activate. But it seems that it does not show the fire button. Am I doing it wrong? Thanks for the response."

    @realluochen9999 i also don't like math but with funky trees players can make more and more cool projects.

    Devs, I have a Good Idea for a More Realistic Approach for the Cannons, How about The Bigger the Cannon Caliber, the Heavier it Becomes. But on the Plus Side, the Bigger the Cannon, the Bigger the Damage... :D
