Updated: Scum server to latest patch
Patch Notes 0.1.21.10623 [Dec 07, 2018]
7 DECEMBER - WONDERWE1SS
WE ARE BACK and with all the info on our new patch and what goodies we prepared for you guys! Vehicles, Capture the flag event mode, new locations, new weapons and many more! Before jumping into it, let's address the wipe that will also happen.
As we announced on Monday, we will do a wipe of all chests including items in them, and fame points. We are working on a new item handling system that should help with client and server performance, and for that to work, a wipe is needed. Also, we are wiping all fame points due to some people accumulating thousands of fame points through killing cheaters.
Let's start with what you've all been waiting for - vehicles. Here is a list of what you have in this first version of vehicles.
One driveable vehicle (The SUV on the pictures), it holds up to 4 people.
The ability to enter/exit the vehicle and be either a driver or a passenger. Each car has one or more slots for players. The number of slots depends on the vehicle type and shape. Which slot player will occupy is determined by the player's proximity to the slot. We plan to deliver at least one drivable vehicle with four slots.
Ability to store items in the vehicle.
Ability to destroy the vehicle (vehicle repairs will probably not be implemented in the first iteration)
Ability to kill other players and mid/small NPCs with a vehicle by driving into them.
Ability to kill players when they are inside the vehicle (bullet penetration/deflection should work on glass and metal parts as expected)
Basic vehicle sound and graphics effects (some expected effects may be absent in the first iteration)
For starters there will be 32 SUVs on the island for you guys to find and drive around.
What will be added later on
- Fueling and repairs
- First person camera
- Ability to shoot from inside the vehicle
- Advanced car damage effects
- Destructible environment
- Locking a vehicle
- Lockpicking into a locked vehicle
- Hotwiring a car
- Armoring a car
- More player interactions inside a car.
- Boobytraping a car.
- Hit locations.
And yes, we already have another vehicle in the works!
Please keep in mind that this is the first version of vehicles and that there are possible bugs and issues. Thank you for your understanding!
Capture The Flag
New game mode coming your way! We all heard for the classic CTF mode, so we added it in SCUM, and boy its a blast.
Capture the Flag is a game event where teams win points by capturing the enemy flag. Each team has a flag.
The goal is to capture the enemy flag and bring it to your base location. If the rival team takes your flag, then it has to be returned to the base first to be able to score points.
The stolen flag is dropped when the participant carrying it dies. A dropped flag can then be returned to the base by being picked up by its team members.
Otherwise a dropped flag is returned to the base after a short timer (30s) elapses.
To win the event a team has to score 3 points or have the highest number of points at the end of round (5 min).
MIDI keyboard support
Our sound guy had some spare time left so he and one of our programmers made support for MIDI keyboards so you can play it in the game!
MIDI keyboard should be connected before the game is started.
All instruments support 3 octaves.
We used this bad boy:
We got you guys a new toy to play with! AS Val, our first rifle with suppression, quiet and deadly, just without the methane.
It uses 9x39mm ammunition:
And it can be found in military bases and police stations.
