  1. I added the ability to collapse the sidebar. When collapsed the content in it is hidden+smaller and the item list is also slightly smaller. Tell me what you think. I'll add an options menu later for saving this and several other features.
  2. dev. is just a testing environment on the production server for me. Eventually it'll become apbdb.com.
  3. I tried making use of the full screen width instead of just centered content with empty spaces on the sides. If I would hide the search UI on the left and stretch the item's content across everything, it would indeed, as Aeronaut pointed out, look somewhat out of place (especially so on high res screens). I also tried to make everything more browsable, minimizing full page (re)loads. I wouldn't want to change up the concept I have right now, but could instead add different display modes for the item browser. For example; use mobile view on desktop (mobile view currently hides the search UI when you select an item). As for curves; I can't promise they are 100% accurate. The data comes from the game's files but currently only shows data points in 5m steps. I would say its in an "alpha state". If there is anything else you would want displayed on certain pages, I can definitely look into it.
  4. Which things exactly make it cluttered for you? Most of the designs I just came up with by looking at other sites and combining layouts I personally liked. I'm not the best at coming up with good UI/UX, so any feedback is appreciated.
  5. Yes. Stats haven't changed past few patches, so those should all be correct. There will be a visual update to the whole database in the future aswell.
  6. I don't think the loss in average players comes from switching anti-cheats. Mostly people going back to do stuff they couldn't do in the past months because of COVID-19. Honestly though, I would rather have EAC back aswell.
  7. No, that cannot happen. The minimum requirement to start ANY action district mission is to have atleast 2 players from the same faction readied up.
  8. OP might need to get some shungite around the la casa. Little pyramids, stuff like that.
  9. FairFight is not active in any form anymore. They only use EAC now: Source: https://www.gamersfirst.com/apb/news/2019/5/31/fun-fair-fixed
  10. Just to be clear, these are the only files you insert into the Binaries folder, right?
  11. Remove dxgi.dll https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EKvAdRXOeYY&feature=youtu.be#t=1h23m18s
  12. It is not blocked by EAC and afaik it is allowed to use for now. I have been using ReShade for quite a while now without any issues. Can you show us a picture of your Binaries folder after you have applied ReShade to your game?
  13. Nice read. I assume the shotgun changes in this doc are with Per Ray Damage scaling? And what do you mean with "set spread" for the CSG, something like we had back in the days with the pellet circle? You might also have to update Low-Yields on that document, their Radius was already nerfed to 550 cm, a bit lower than the suggestion to keep the 3rd nade.
  14. The shotguns on those Test pages are still processing through rayscaling, but due to it being set to 1 (or 100%) it is not scaling anything. The rayscaling stat on weapon pages is always shown if not 0.
  15. Just so everyone is on the same boat here, the stats that are currently on the Prototype district: https://apbdb.com/items/Weapon_Shotgun_CSG_Joker/TestA/ https://apbdb.com/items/Weapon_Shotgun_JG/TestA/
  16. The problem is that the current bounty system punishes you for doing well. Normally you get rewarded for killing multiple people in a row without dying. If there were any upside to being bounty in a mission, it wouldn't be such a punishment. afaik after the quickreboot this was fixed, atleast I was able to play for 2 hours yesterday and the ms didn't go above 35. I assume they don't do this because it is often paired with favoritism. If you do it for a couple event holders, everyone wants a pocket GM which does things for them. Don't understand me wrong, I'd love more support for custom events from LO, but it often ends up in unnecessary drama.
  17. https://wiki.unrealengine.com/UE3_to_UE4_Transition_Guide Oh yeah, its so so easy. You just have to do everything in this guide for basically the entire game and more. No you cannot translate UE3 into UE4 Blueprints. No you can't just translate UE3 into UE4 code, its completely different, look at the examples in that link. No you can't just take .upk packages and import them into UE4, they are not supported. You have to reimport your .FBX-files. If you still have .psk & .psa-files, you have to reexport them as .FBX-files from your modeling software. And more and more and more and more and more and more and more.. things you need to fix, improve, rewrite and redo. Its not easy. I love how people load up UE4, open the store, grab some free assets, drag and drop them into the Editor, then call themselfs Senior Unreal Engine Developer and tell everyone to "just port the game to ue4 lol" Do your research and stop spreading misinformation.
  18. Really depends on the hardware for the most part. APB's building poly count isn't really high, modern GPUs (GTX 9xx+) won't have issues with a few more blocks in the distance. The current issue is that the game thread is slowing down the render thread. Its all explained in the thread rooq linked.
  19. Do you care to explain what makes you think that? (or are we out of complaining content?) Edit: If you were still using (db.)apbvault.net, then you should have been aware that the domain would be shut down at some point. There was a notice for atleast a half year on every page.
  20. This type of minigame is not supposed to be running. The server is starting up the wrong type of Snowball Fight minigame. Thats also why the UI and the gameplay is completely broken.
  21. Players: "remove threat segregation so we can play" LO: *does it* Players: "wtf go back"
  22. My idea would be to disable the car spawner modification for 5 seconds when taking any damage from opponents. This would essentially kill tactics like sitting in a Pioneer waiting for teammates to spawn or having the entire enemy squad spawn out of the car you were about to destroy. Just an idea really, could also adjust many things with cooldowns. Removing it is not necessary. Radar Tower is just straight up broken and can be used as a permanent map-wide 2D radar if you can predict spawns.
  23. Pretty sure that was the whole idea, nerfing full auto and keeping the n-tec the tap-fire beast. I honestly believe half of the replies here misunderstood the value changes.
  24. The majority of players nowadays have accepted that Silver = Gold, Bronze = Silver, and so on. Even if you do kill me in a mission, but I see that you are way down on the scoreboard and you are either Silver or Bronze, I will tell you to switch instances - in a nice way ofc. I do this not because I get salty, I do it because I know how high the skillgap can get in that instance. Not to be rude, but you will drag down the performance of your team, which can be very annoying and is the main reason why you see everyone /ab - tab - enter on most mission starts. I had something similar in mind with the 24 hour lock on threat while reading your wall of text, but at most I'd use it as a temporary solution until we have phasing. After phasing, your second suggestion will be obsolete, since matchmaking won't be restricted to the current instance.
