We’ve updated our lighting volumes to use a different kind of falloff. Moving from our previous quadratic light falloff to a (mostly) linear falloff model softens how “hot” the center of the lighting volume is, and reduces how sharply the light diminishes over range. The quadratic falloff we were using prior to this update made it more difficult (and expensive) to light interior spaces, as we needed to use more, smaller lights with higher intensities to fill the volume of space. The new falloff technique provides us with more control over lighting environments in the future, and softens the current lighting in-game to balance out the harsh extremes.
New Lighting in Menus
We’ve started using new lighting in the character select, character create, infantry, and vehicle loadout screens that provides more depth to our character models (and looks better all around.)
This is more of a fix than an update. We identified a change from a few years ago that essentially knocked every shadow quality level down by one. “Ultra” shadows, as an example, weren’t really the intended Ultra shadows, and it was never reachable in the in-game settings menu, but was still possible to set in the UserOptions.ini. With this update, players’ shadows will be bumped up a level, so you may need to adjust your shadow quality settings again once you are in-game.
Zones and Alerts
High-Pop (Conquest) Alerts
- When a continent has more than 800 players on it, a “Conquest” Alert will immediately fire off that uses the same rules of a typical Meltdown.
- Populations do not typically reach this threshold on PS4, but it’s noted here for posterity.
- Koltyr will now be added to the continent unlock rotation during times of low population.
- Depending on how low the current global population is, large continents still in the Unstable state may also be spun down to help funnel players into Koltyr.
- We plan to make additional threshold changes to ensure this doesn’t become all-Koltyr all-day for an extended period of time, and those changes will follow in a later update.
- Ti Alloys, on Indar, has been re-enabled on the lattice.
Gun Game – Uncommon Daily, Black Market
- This mission asks players to earn kills with increasingly challenging weapons.
We’ve made some tweaks to which equipment new players receive at the start of the game. A couple of the areas we wanted to address were the lack of infantry anti-air in the earlier stages of the game, the unwieldy nature of certain starter weapons, and the lack of default vehicle equipment. Those changes are listed in the Infantry and Vehicles sections below.
Default Utility and Defense
- Standard vehicles have received rank 1 Fire Suppression as the default utility item.
- Standard vehicles have received rank 1 Nanite Auto-Repair as their default defense item, except for the Sunderer, which has received rank 1 Deployment Shield.
Bastion Fleet Carrier
- The Bastion now has temporary invulnerability for up to 90 seconds after it is called. If the Bastion is ordered to move or attack, the invulnerability will be dispelled early.
- Mauler Cannons no longer have knockback.
- The L100 Python HEAT has replaced the C75 Viper as the default main cannon.
- L100 Python HEAT direct damage from 525 to 575.

- L100 Python AP gravity from 4 to 5, to fall in line with other tank cannons.

- Resist type 4 reduced from 87 to 80 for the Colossus.

Default Rocket Launchers

- The Hawk GD-68 has replaced the Shrike as the default rocket launcher for the New Conglomerate Heavy Assault.
- The ASP-30 Grounder has replaced the ML-7 as the default rocket launcher of the Terran Republic Heavy Assault.
GD-22S (NC LMG)
- The GD-22S has replaced the NC6 Gauss SAW as the default LMG for the New Conglomerate Heavy Assault.
- GD-22S’ default color is now blue, instead of black.
T9A “Butcher” (TR Directive LMG)
- Projectile velocity from hipfire is now in line with its projectile velocity while aiming at 570.
Defector (NSO MAX)
- Speculative fix for lockons with the Hummingbird lasting long after the projectiles have died.
Nanoweave Armor (Suit Slot)
