Dev Log #26 – 1.0.4 Build Highlights and Patch Notes

, , ,

The community team is releasing build 1.0.4 with some content and quality of life updates that should improve your experience in Midair. PeTtY, jEstEr and hobb have worked hard to get this patch out, so tell them “Thank you” if you see them in a server!

Build Highlights

New Feature: Force to Team/Spectate

To help server admins manage servers for casual and organized play, server admins can now force someone to a team or to spectate. These new options are available to server admins in the player list menu.

Prototype Map Updates

Twilight Grove

Updated with steeper terrain and replaced flag stand with the one from Brynhildr. Flag to flag distance is 320m.

Craters

Replaced flag stand wheel with rock platform and moved them closer together. Flag to flag distance is 275m.

New Community Maps

The volunteer community team is releasing two new maps: Hazardous and HillRange. For more details read on.

Hazardous

Community map with bowl terrain and raised flag stand from Outpost99. Flag to flag distance is 380m. There’s no “walking it in” with this flag stand, you’ll need to work together.

HillRange

Community map with rolling hills terrain and floating stand. Flag to flag distance is 360m. To the keen eye there are new routes to be found amongst the rolling hills between the floating flag bases.

QoL Updates

VVS Sorry

Added a team-only ‘Sorry’ to voice bind menu. Now you can apologize to those caught in your splash damage.

Dot Reticle larger

Larger version of the dot reticle has been added.

Bracket Reticle added

New bracket reticle has been added. Check out the design below.
