End of July 2018 Update (1.19.6 on OTW)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I have posted a new dev blog with the July update on our progress. You can read the details here:
https://apbreloaded.gamersfirst.com/2018/07/end-of-july-update.html

This update covers the details for 1.19.6, the upcoming 1.19.7, progress with Unreal 3.5, and some updates for our console players.

Build 1.19.6 is now available to all players on our Open Test World. Once you log in and create your account, you'll have a bunch of in-game emails waiting with all the weapons in the game to play with. In order to access that system, you need to download an alternate installer for the game. You can download the OTW version of APB here:

Thanks,
Matt

This is all great news! I hope the new weapon will be a gun you can get ingame and not from ARMAS. 

Also the duplicate items button is a great idea for the trade system.

Looking great! Interested to see how these new pistols will handle and can't wait to test them, and everything else that's coming to the game.

I'm really happy you've extended the ignore list freely for everyone, filled mine up years ago on multiple characters.

You're doing God's work right now.

I'm gonna take a guess that it's something along the lines of a shotgun-pistol that we've been teased over for years.

Edit: It is. It's live on OTW right now, using the DOW Thumper sound and has a pretty tight spread. Edited by Kiida

Looks similar to a Taurus so probably a shotty pistol for sure 

Excited about 3.5 being brought to OTW hopefully soon™ Edited by SuperToaster

Question about new friends system:
We will need permission to add people to our friends list after its wipe?

I would hope so, that's kind of the change I've been suggesting for years now. But as long as people can't abuse the friends system for, say, streamsniping or targeted harassment then I don't care what else they've done do it.

Yes. When you invite a friend, they now have to accept the request before they are added. We also now hide your exact location from friends till the entire process is complete.
THANK YOU! Damn, this has been such a long time coming.

But one more thing, what about the player search function that most of us use to spam-join full districts? That currently also shows anyone's location whether added as a friend or not. Edited by Kiida

BTW - The Showstopper stats are not final. We'll fix that in the next two days with a patch.

Trade system window (allegedly) without thousands/millions delimiter - what could go wrong considering people cannot see the difference between 400000 and 4000000 under stress during trades?...

But when is the engine upgrade for the PC officially going to be release?
seems like 2019

Also, Matt can you explain more to what you meant in our inbox discussion, do you plan on making discussion to the public to those wondering about those two subjects which i bought up?

Edited for clarity.
Further clarification needed: If you remove someone from your friends list, does it also now remove you from theirs as well? Cause that's another glaring issue with the current system.

Non-friends cannot see your location now.

Yes. If you remove them, then you are automatically removed from their friends list as well.
