Forum Foxhole Update 31
  • Update 31

    17.11.2019 14:57 Uhr

    Vor wenigen Tagen erschien Update 31. Dieses Update bereitet bereits das große Winterupdate vor und fügt einige neue Systeme ein, auf denen das Winterupdate aufbauen soll. So können Squads nun einen eigenen Viocekanal nutzen.  Der Squadleader wird neuerdings auf dem Kompass angezeigt und Squadmates heben sich endlich durch farbige Namen ab. Leider sind diese Funktionen noch recht rudimentär.

    Spannender sind hingegen die Änderungen aus kämpferischer Sicht. Mit Update 31 wurde ein Deckugs- und Unterdrückungssystem eingeführt. Spieler die aus der Deckung heraus schießen, erhalten einen Bonus auf Zielgenauigkeit. Sollte man allerdings offen unter Schuss geraten wird der Gegenangriff schwierig, denn das Recoil geht kaum noch zusammen und soll auf diese Weise eine Unterdrückung simulieren.

    Zudem wurde der Techtree nun automatisiert.

    Genauere Informationen findet ihr den den Releas Notes im Anhang!

       ■   Cover & Suppression

              ○    The new cover and suppression system is designed to make combat more tactical and encourage more teamwork in general, but specifically to make cover more valuable in the game in preparation for some new base building features coming in the Winter Update. For more details on how the cover and suppression system was designed, please read our latest devblog.

              ○    Players can now enter cover by standing next to tall structures or crouching behind low structures in the environment

              ○    Cover provides two buffs

                        •    Hit mitigation - % of shots will be absorbed

                        •    Aim stability - Stability is regained faster

              ○    Players are now suppressed when they are near gun fire (not explosions)

                        •    Suppression reduces the effectiveness of Cover buffs

                        •    Suppression reduces Aim stability regain rate

              ○    Rifles, Carbines, Sniper Rifles, and Storm Rifles in single shot mode are impacted far less by hit mitigation

       ■   Faction Efficiency

              ○    Efficiency is a new system designed to regulate the pacing of wars:
                        •    Ensure that towns are upgraded over time instead of instantly

                        •    Add a proper trade-off between upgrading towns vs expanding

                        •    Reduce the rate of snowballing

                        •    Reduce the severity of night swings

                        •    Ensure that the future efforts of base building aren't foiled by unstable pacing

              ○    Facility Efficiency decreases when Facilities are built within a real world day

              ○    Facility Efficiency resets every day (spread various times)

              ○    # of Upgrade Parts required to upgrade Facilities is

                        •    Lower when efficiency is high

                        •    Higher when efficiency is low


    Gameplay Changes

                        •    Reduce need to grind Tech Parts

              ○    Tech Tree now progresses automatically without the need for players to submit Research Parts

              ○    Tech Parts and Research Parts have been removed from the game

              ○    Upgrade Parts drop directly from gathering Salvage and Components
