After fighting through a swarm of bugs we are ready to release a version of Zero-K compatible with Spring 94.1. We've been hard (and slow) at work fixing compatibility issues and working around new engine bugs. There are many important fixes in this engine version so hopefully it has been worthwhile.
Non-ZKL users will need to update their engine but with the appearance of Weblobby and static builds for Linux this should be easy.
Pathfinding around terrain has been significantly improved. This is most noticeable for units with low slope tolerance and large turning circle. Units get themselves stuck on terrain much less often.
Plane related bugs have been fixed. There should no longer be an occasional plane which misses the airpad and has to be reclaimed. Bombers can be given orders after an attack ground order without messing up their queue.
Area of effect damage is now based on distance to hitsphere instead of distance to the center of a unit. This makes a lot more sense and fixes issues involving large units not take damage unless hit directly.
Apparently the whole game should run significantly faster.
Bertha, Tremor, Pillager, Disco Rave Party, Behemoth, Warlord and Catapult no longer avoid terrain when aiming. This is either because they are good at knocking down walls or because they are too inaccurate and high trajectory for terrain to matter.
Gauss weapons deal predictable damage based on the footprint of the unit they are targeting. Scrubber damage has been increased from 90 to 110 to counteract this.
Chicken Swarmers can form writhing masses which packed densely enough. Watch out, they can flow over small barriers.
Modified overall mex values for Evergreen_Haven-Redux-v02, MountDustmoreV3, Riverbedv2
Reduced center supermexes for FolsomDamFinal, Deadlands, Motkottava_Nakkivahvero-v01
