We return from a bit of a break in development with a campaign update and an experimental performance improvement.

The old campaign mission text, while serviceable, lacked much in the way or narrative or lore. ThornEel has replaced all the text with something much more evocative.

The performance improvement comes from tweaking the frequency of weapon aiming, a parameter that initially set early 2018. Visually, the change should be barely noticeable, however it is likely to impact balance. Benchmarks indicate that this tweak will result in the best performance seen since at least 2017, if not earlier.

Behaviour Fixes


  • Fixed the broken Starlight on planet Cipher.
  • Configured weapon aiming for a significant boost to game performance.
  • Fixed Kodachi being too eager to become a wreck.
  • Fixed firing at buried or otherwise obscured Berthas by raising its aimpoint.
  • Fix a bug related to Gunships climbing steep cliffs.

Other Fixes


  • Fixed the most common cause of lag when selecting units as a spectator.
  • Fixed Area Mex causing duplicate commands in some cases.
  • Fixed a bug with queuing construction orders for incomplete Strider Hubs.
  • Updated Russian translations.
  • Fixes for depth-of-field.
  • Fixed shadows and shaders for some old graphics cards.
  • Fixed wading unit wakes.
  • Fixed economy module description.
  • Swapped some ally teamcolours for better distinguishability in small games.
  • Puppy Goo now updates wreck tooltips correctly.

I remember the previous reaim time reduction majorly changing the way scorchers behave in one on ones. Does this mean scorchers will be much less effective while turning again? Or is this something else?
