This release includes a lot of bugfixes and some changes to UI. Experience based morphs are removed, and several gameplay mechanics are made more consistent.

Zombies
This night, dead shall walk again! Wreckage left unattended for too long will self-resurrect and become hostile to anyone around.

Gameplay
Removed XP morphs.
Bombers have to rearm before repair pads repair them.
Naked Recon Comm no longer transportable by Valkyrie
Inaccuracy no longer reduced by experience
Planet Wars structures no longer flatten ground on spawn
Stockpile and Morph obey slow and disarm
Experience gain simplified
Wrecks of jumping units now keep momentum and continue inertially
Default comm is Strike Trainer instead of Junior
Lamp will no longer be fired upon unless ordered to

Commander Autorepair module now works on out of combat regeneration (10s after last received damage), replacing the default out of combat regeneration

Time to wait for disconnected players: 75 s -> 150 s

Time before default comm spawns: 30 s -> 15 s

Land units speed loss with depth per height: 10% -> 7%
Grizzly: LoS 605 -> 660
Scalpel: LoS 484 -> 495
Radar: HP 81 -> 80
Sneaky Peet: HP 712 -> 700

That's a listful of awesomeness right there. Gj all.

Edit: I'd like to add that, while I've mostly scoffed at the supcom camera, like most other supcom-related things, and the forum discussions between qwerty and shadowfury have been completely bamboozling, the camera mode has ended up looking really good in ZK, at least in shadowfury's casts. Gj with that as well.

Why morph is dead?

In my opinion morph was good. Maybe players no used very much it, but is a very good tool.

Which parameters?
Where can I find documentation on this?

Several types of data formerly stored in LuaRules/Configs are now stored in units' individual CustomParams tables. This way widgets can access them.

In particular, jumpdefs, surviving morphs, and units which can cloak when idle.

Another bunch of retarded changes like:
- Removed XP morphs.
- Commander Autorepair module now works on out of combat regeneration (10s after last received damage), replacing the default out of combat regeneration

that was NOT discussed with the community in a proper, opened and verifiable way,

FIranksprang I'm glad you have enjoyed it. The only issue I've noticed with the new COFC setup is that the minimap tends to obscure a corner of the map at full zoom, but I have (in personal dev) the solution to fade the minimap opacity to 30% at full zoom out. I'm trying to figure out if it is possible to get parameters relating to max zoomed out height for engine cameras before pushing to the main repo, but it does work for COFC.

"Venom EMP obeys armor. Obedience is the correct behaviour."
Lawl.

"Bombers have to rearm before repair pads repair them."
Um... how long does rearm take? 3 seconds? I mean, they can still be repaired by coms/cons/nanos regardless, no?

"Removed XP morphs"
"Inaccuracy no longer reduced by experience"
"Experience gain simplified"
So... what purpose does XP serve now?

GBrankTheEloIsALie i suppose it serves the same purpose as kill count does in Starcraft - its just cosmetic.

It depends on a damage recived and they can still be repaired in the field by cons yes. licho seems to be affected the most since it has lots of hp so it will take forever to rearm if it is damaged making it almost useless now.

Well that's not what the patch said.

I would understand if it said "has to repair before rearm". That's what I thought was being contemplated all the time, but it clearly says "has to rearm before repair", which just doesn't make sense to me.

Maybe it's also just EErankAdminAnarchid failing. Who knows.

quote:

This simply means Pad BP is fully commited to rearming, and will only start repairing after that. As a result, eg. Wyvern will take only 5s to rearm and is instantly ready for action, but you can decide to either use it or keep repairing it. Other BP sources can repair normally (but cannot refuel).

quote:
So... what purpose does XP serve now?

Mostly as an effectiveness indicator. 1 XP is making cost 5 times (provided that the unit does all the killing and does not steal lasthits). XP might also bestow some super-minor undocumented bonuses due to engine (for example it used to reduce inaccuracy and missile wobble until now).

quote:

Base time is 5s (might be longer due to status effects applied to the pad).

Huh? There's [url=9602]a recent thread[/url] about morph removal, and like 4 old threads from a few years ago that also supported that.

quote:

Jumps didn't make it; on the other hand, defensive maneuver (ie. Solar), airpad count, and Amph regen did.

When I'm saying about poll I mean poll not silly forum thread that half of zk community simply missed

It should be poll open for 1600+ elo or so with hidden votes visible only after poll completion. If we had such one I would not have any questions about morph removal.
But we did not have one.

Does it mean that without autorepair module, com does not repair any longer?

Autorepair module starts to work 10s after not reciving damage.

Well i was confused a but abaut this sorry :\ I thought it is going to be the other way araund.

RUrankFirepluk if people want to contribute to the development then they should look at the forum where thoughts are exchanged instead of doing it like you, wich is raging abaut it postfact and blaming devs for not consulting the community.
This recent thread has been up for 52 days already and you didnt contribute to the discusion in any way, shape or form. You are to be blamed as well for not proposing the better morph pattern (as people like USrankAutoWar tried) or at least opposing the morph removal idea (like DErankKlon did).

i agree with Firepluk:

"Another bunch of retarded changes like:

- Commander Autorepair module now works on out of combat regeneration (10s after last received damage), replacing the default out of combat regeneration

that was NOT discussed with the community by the open poll",

especially about delayed autorepair. And why you "minused" his message?
