Icarus Patch Notes – June 23, 2022

Horde Mode

  • Add biome-specific horde waves (not yet hooked up into level)
  • Fixed up Horde DT row handles on BP actors to represent what biome theyre in and added function for updating this
  • Adding New Datatables and Enteries for new Horde System
  • Adding Component and logic for new Horde System
  • Hooking up Analyzer Transmitter to use new Horde System
  • Adding First Pass of Horde Mode to Engine
  • Adding New In World UI for horde mode which reflects the machines statem, number of waves, progress in current wave, etc
  • Adding Inventory for Horde Rewards to the Analyzer Transmitter
  • Setup Basic Horde Mode Datatables so new Hordes can be created and Triggered
  • Updated Both Inworld UI and Interacted with UI for Vapour Condensor so it works with the Current state of the Horde
  • Added CompletionsUnitInert and InertReward elements to the Horde Datastructure
  • Hookedup the multipler so each Horde which is triggered is scaled by the number of completions present on the Enzyme Geyser
  • Adding new Experience Event For Horde Completion
  • Horde Mode is now completeable multiple times on a single node with the multiplier scaling the difficulty and rewards upon each subsequent use
  • Added ability for Horde Spawners to spawn around pre-designated QuestMarker actors placed in the level, instead of using a generic EQS centred around condenser location
  • Added prospect difficulty and player count scaling to horde mode spawning
  • Fixed issue where horde mode could spawn more AI during a wave than desired, and go over the 100% completion progress limit
  • Change item rewards for Horde inert to be a single Enzyme item
  • Horde mode in world widget UI pass.
  • Change interacts around (Hold F now activates, Press F opens inventory) to prevent accidental wave stopping
  • Replaced references to waves in the UI to mention stages as to allow it to make more sence in terms of activating a machine rather than a game mechanic
  • Added a 1s delay between simultaneous horde spawns to spread out AI and reduce likelyhood of FPS hitches
  • Add new Getter function for spawned creature levels with a larger (0.5x) multiplier to increase the creature levels per horde completion (now 25 -> 38 -> 50 etc)
  • Add character growth setups (matching Jaguar) for Cougar and Snow Leopards, so they will now scale with their level
  • Fixed spelling on Vapor Condenser itemable
  • Tweaked horde waves: Shorter delays for 2nd waves, only 1 additional Bear per player, Polarbears spawn at level 1, more Hyenas at a time, numerous changes to make Scorpion wave more difficult
  • Fixed erroneous setup of Jaguar which was getting its health and melee stats from two different sources, doubling its effectiveness
  • Multiplied base stats curves of Jaguar (also shared with Snow Leopard and Cougar) by 1.5x after dual stat correction (slight nerf to Jaguar, buff to Cougar and Snow Leopard)
  • NPCs no longer leave blocking collision behind temporarily after death, should make large groups of AI more predictable when fighting and will stop them running into invisible barriers
  • NPC corpses no longer tick when their ragdoll simulation has full settled; significant performance boost in situations where player is surrounded by many dead NPCs. NPC corpses that come into net relevancy will now use the hosts cached ragdoll pose instead of having the cilent re-simulate their own. This should further reduce cases where dead NPCs fall through the world, especially when returning to carcass from far away
  • Dont reward Exotics on Outposts as they cannot be taken back to HAB from an Outpost

Enzyme Geyser

  • Add Deer Statue Decoration Wood item as first recipe which uses Condensed Enzymes in recipe (Crafted on Rustic Decoration Bench), more statues to come
  • Add 21 Enzyme Geysers to Olympus in .Vision/Geysers folder

  • Adding geyser analyzer hoard mode start – loop – end audio and blueprint implementation
  • Adding analyzer transmitter device deploy sound and geyser loop
  • Add Editor Locator beacon setup for Geyser BP with toggle
  • Small position tweaks to Enzyme Geysers on Olympus
  • Add Enzyme Geysers to Outpost002, 003 and 005.
  • Adding Enzyme Geyser BP Object and setting up snapping points
  • Added C++ Base Classes forthe Enzyme Geyser and added a recorder component so its state can persist between saves
  • Added Condensed Enzyme Item, which is currently rewarded when Enzyme geysers reach an inert state
  • An Enzyme Geyser now goes inert after a certain amount of activations completions so that the high value reward is not limitless
  • Update EnzymeGeyser to use new mesh and erruption effects
  • Update Geyser socket and scene component info to suit new mesh
  • Fix UMG Widget text for geyser collapsing instead of hiding, causing the widget to not fit on screen
  • BP_EnzymeGeyser audio state updates when an Analyzer is attached – currently switches on and off, will update to apply an EQ parameter instead. Created a new DeployableFoundationInterface to allow attach/detach events to be fired on generic foundation actors to enable this behaviour. Also refactored ADeployables foundation actor functions to use the new interface.
  • Fix missing ref in BP_EnzymeGeyser audio implementation
  • Fix geyser FX not restarting when VapourCondenser is destroyed – Deployable wasnt calling detach events correctly from its EndPlay.
  • Update to distancing of the Geyser
  • Updated the Static Mesh and Skeletal Mesh LODs for the asset DEP_Analyzer_Transmitter_Device
  • EnzymeGeyser mesh, textures and material
  • Split out Geyser niagara effects (eruption from main) for audio purposes
  • Adding more geyser audio burst events and adjusting standard geyser audio to be more appropriate for updated visuals
  • Tweaked arctic geyser positions to be in less sparse/open areas making it easy to complete waves
  • Polish and Optimization pass on Meta Geyser, reduced saturation, emissive, particle spawn count, etc
  • Meta Geyser Eruption VFX increased duration and delay and fix Lit Water VFX Material
  • Virtualizing geysers and limiting to 1
