Outlines, Nades, Sounds

Outlines, Nades, Sounds

A bit of a light Thursday patch Bumfuzzlers, but it’s a patch nonetheless! There’s certainly some polishing going on and it’s probably light in preparation for next week’s wipe patch. 

With this patch we’ve got outlines around items. Much easier to find the goodies in the grass for sure!

Riding horses and driving cars should be a lot smoother as you can see in this video clip.

The admire animations are getting closer to completion!

And apparently there will be a new Quarry monument coming our way soon among a few other goodies.

The world outlines are certainly a great add. I can’t remember how many times I’ve lost items in the grass! Grenade mechanics were changed too, but it seems like a bit of a lazy change. I personally enjoy cooking ‘nades 🙁

Bulletproof, Panels, Minigame

Thanksgiving is no exception Bumfuzzlers! The patches must flow and flow they have 🙂

That post image is from the upcoming monument called The Junkyard. It looks pretty awesome and a great idea. Seems like it would be fun to explore for sure. Here’s a few more pictures of it.

Also more talk about half walls as part of Building 3.0. This should make for some far more dynamic buildings.

Take a look at the adjustments made to the tree mini game. They made it a little more manageable. No longer will you have to play ring around the rosy with the tree! lol

Admire animations seem to be coming along! This will go nicely with the latest Skin Perk addition to the server. Now not only will you get perks from certain variations of items based on skin, but you can also admire them!

As always, I’ve highlight my personal picks for important bullet items! Enjoy!
