After some much-needed life maintenance, the summer (or 'ɹǝɯɯns') Zero-K development break is over. During the break we received a Hunter model and some much improved animations for the Cloakbots. The major changes of this version are to Flea, in the form of a nerf, and Space Lobsters, in the form of a physics tweak.

Flea:
  • Range 155 -> 150
  • DPS reduced by 7.3%
  • Decloak radius 120 -> 200

Other changes:
  • Put a cap on Space Lobster by setting a limit on the projected flight time of lobbed units.
  • Halberd can no longer change armour state while disarmed.
  • Improved the walk animations of the Cloakbots.
  • Replaced the Hunter model.
  • Hid the modoptions window in matchmaker games.
  • Potentially fixed an undead Outlaw error.
  • Chicken Queen health multiplier modoption can now be set higher.
  • Reworked Into Battle startboxes for 1v1.

Hell yeah! Now we only wait for funnelweb rework and jumpy detriment.

Chicken Queen health multiplier modoption can now be set higher.

cant set it higher then 10x, wasnt it the same before? I was now thinking about the realy Hardcore Challenging, Chickenqueen with 100x more HP or 200x xD

Something missed in the announcement is that the slowing weapon variants for commanders are no longer completely useless:

Modoption will need a lobby client update to take effect. The release date for this is not currently set.

Played a long game with the new flea and it still feels a lot the same to the old flea. So far, I'm happy.

I recall being able to bring new chicken settings into play through chat commands. Are you sure, MYrankAdminHistidine?

Here it would be something like "!setoptions queenhealthmod=30".

Edit: did not realise it's summer there lol

Hunter model looks awesome, although the textures on it are kind of simple.

Well, I forgot chat commands were still a thing. "Proper" support would be good though.

The most relevant change isn't the flea nerf (which was actually tiny in terms of uncloaked combat potential).

It's something else...

Maybe the hunter picture in the factory/ when selecting units should be updated soon too?
It really feels weird with the current unit model and a totally different picture.
