APB News from official sources

Post by Vector on Sun Jun 24, 2012 6:51 pm

So as a begging here is some news about 1.9.0. patch:

With the first release of 1.9.0 you will be able to start earning Joker Tickets when you win Fight Club challenges. Over time we will also start adding Joker Ticket Awards to Mission Districts as well.

When you win a Fight Club challenge, you will receive a stack of Joker Tickets giving you access to exclusive items from our new contacts. While some of these will be short-cuts to in-game rewards or items unique to Joker Distribution, we will also be allowing players to use these tickets to access items previously only accessible through Armas. Items available through this system include several Car Kits, Clothing Assets, Vehicles, and a number of previously Armas-only weapons. This gives players a path to earn some of these exclusive items purely from in-game activities.

As part of 1.9.0. they will add the ability to show a preferred title as part of your name, for that extra little bit of customization. By default this is your rank, but you can choose from a number of options based on how you've progressed through the game, what achievements you have unlocked, and various other activities. This is a totally opt-in activity however, and it's something you can choose to disable if it's something you'd not like to broadcast yourself, or see on others.

Some bad news about racing district

Post by Vector on Mon Jun 25, 2012 3:03 pm

Here's message from Jotunblut:

Hello!

I'd like to take a moment to talk about the Racing District.

We've been saying that it's ‘on the back-burner’ for a while now and whilst this is true it's really, really on the back-burner. We created a rough prototype of a Racing District and we found that the amount of work required to create an enjoyable and in-depth enough experience was not viable in comparison to the improvements that we would gain by focusing on other areas.

The amount of work required to get the racing district to a point where we'd be happy with it and we know that it would live up to expectations was too great for us to be able to find a place for it in the road map of the next year of APB's continued development. If we were working on a Racing District as a full time development project we simply wouldn’t have had time to work on the features and fixes that have been adding and are continuing to add to APB: Reloaded.

The idea hasn't been shelved entirely but it isn't in active development at the moment and, for the foreseeable future, it will likely stay like that. In the mean time we’ve been gearing up for 1.9 which is the second part of the New Breed. We already have some ground work for 1.10 and beyond even that.

I know some of you are probably very disappointed about this news but this is part of the reality of game development. Occasionally you try something, then it turns out not to work. We would like to say however that some parts of our plans for Racing District will likely make it into APB, but a fully-fledged racing district is likely not to happen.

Thank you,

The APB: Reloaded Team.

New event from G1 mods:Free Sheets For The Win!

Post by Vector on Sat Jul 14, 2012 4:58 am

Free Sheets For The Win!

This week’s event is all about Action, Comedy and Tragedy.

We want you and your clan to get together, get into uniforms and produce a screenshot that’s either a comedic masterpiece, a thrilling action shot or a heart rending tragedy.

The best submissions to each three categories will win the grand prize of all the symbol sheets currently available on ARMAS for everyone from your clan in the picture.

REQUIREMENTS

This contest will run from Friday 13th July 2012 at 5 PM UTC to Thursday the 19th of July 2012 at 5 PM UTC. Attach your submissions using the image tool to your forum post. Makes it easier for us to track!
Clans must post in game in ‘clan uniform’ (ideally identical outfits) and submit a group photo from one of the three genres below:

- Action
- Comedy
- Tragedy

Please include the names of the people in the screenshot, your clan name and the server that you play on when you make your submission.
We’ll have a winning picture from each server in each category (so, for example, there’ll be a winner from Joker in Action, a Colby Action winner, a Patriot Action winner and a Han Action winner).
Only clan members in the winning group photo will be rewarded if that wins so if you want the sheets you have to show up and take part! Not all clan members are required to participate but only those that do will be rewarded. Remember to include the name of your cameraman.
No photoshop!
One submission per clan.
We’ve got three threads for the submissions.

Action submissions

Comedy submissions

Tragedy submissions

Aaaand hello again! New breed pt.2 is out! Here some release notes

Post by Vector on Fri Jul 27, 2012 3:01 pm



New! Joker Distribution Centre Opens in Breakwater Marina!

? Joker Distribution has opened a branch in the social district and employed
Ophelia and Wilde as representatives. Bring the Joker tokens you earn
in Fight Club to them and exchange them for cool new weapons, clothing and
vehicles - some of which you can see on display throughout the store.
Will you be the first to unlock the ridiculously opulent Crown Imperial?!




New Feature - Activities!

? New to Fight Club are Activities: Activities will require you to perform small tasks
whilst on a Fight Club mission. An example would be "Kill 3 enemy players with
your sidearm" or "Obtain 3 assists".

?There are 3 tiers of Activities: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Each tier will increase
the challenge of the activity but will net you a greater reward as you go.
Attaining a Bronze or Silver rank will reward you on the spot, however attaining
a gold rank will net you a significantly larger reward at the end of the week.
Individual activities can be skipped every 6 minutes and you will receive
a different activity to perform, for those of you who would rather not
obtain 3 assists for example.

? We are introducing this to Fight Club to begin with, with hopes of introducing
it to the action districts and general missions as well, we are using Fight Club as
a testing ground to study how successful the activity system is.
Please do not hesitate to provide us with feedback on the new system.





New Feature - Titles!

? These appear below your player name on the HUD and can be seen
by other players. You can change your title via the Character Info or
Character Inventory screens. You unlock more through completing in-game
achievements and roles, ranking up, or purchasing them with Joker Tickets
from Ophelia in Breakwater Marina. By default your title is your rank name,
but various others are available. You can even choose no title, or, if you
are in a Clan and are a Premium member, the name of your Clan.










Other Feature Changes!

? Added Camera tilt. Your camera will now tilt in accordance with the direction
you are leaning.

? Added an option to disable mouse smoothing.

? Re-Adding High-Heels now a major issue with them is now fixed. These have
been added to the Joker Distribution Centre and will be on Armas in the future.
? Teammate stuns will now award friendly Stun Demerits when in a mission
and trigger the team kill kick system in Fight Club.

? Adding a few non-unlockable Vaquero parts to be gifted to all players with
a Vaquero.

? Added an animated background for the death screen.

? Added a new background for the district spawn selection screen.

? Changed several display points in Social to be usable by both factions.

This includes the areas outside Rendezvous and the new Joker Distribution store.
? Added a new splash screen for 1.9.0.
? Devil Dog has a new perch...






Mission and Weapon Changes!

? Disabled missions that use trucks as they are very unpopular.

? OSMAW and the PMG now have skins available for player selection and use.

? Levels 1, 7, 12 and 16 of Pointman and Rifleman unlock Solid Stock variants
of the OCA/JG and NTEC respectively.

? Increasing the Sprint Delay from 0.25 to 0.45 seconds. This means you
will be unable to sprint for approximately half a second after firing your weapon.

? The Joker RFP-9 now has increased accuracy loss when sprinting.
This means you'll need about half a second after sprinting to fire accurately.

? Increased the aiming walk speed of the STAR-556 'LCR' significantly.







Bug Fixes

? ASSISTS: Fixed an issue were assists were not always given. Assists are
now awarded to all players that dealt damage to the player that died - though
only the player that did the most damage other than the killer will show on
the assist HUD.

? VFX: Checkpoint volumes are now correctly cleaned up when a mission ends.

? EXPLOIT: Fixed an exploit which allowed players to fire faster than intended.

? EXPLOIT: Fixed a roof next to a Ga5 station in Financial that players
could use to exploit task items.

? ACHIEVEMENTS: "Kind of a Big Deal" should now unlock correctly.

? MISSIONS: Fixed issues with the final stage of the Criminal mission
"Antisocial Networking".

? MISSIONS: Fixing mission 'Bookie on the Run' so criminals can interact with
task items spawned by the Investigation on Stage 4. This also shortens
the Investigate time of stage 7 in 'Top Cop Chop-Shop Shock'.

? PHYSX: PhysX initialisation failures will now display message boxes and
close the game gracefully instead of crashing.

? GAMEPLAY: Players will now drop a carried task item when
they deploy a field supplier. This will also mean their deployed
weapon will update correctly when it is changed.

? GAMEPLAY: Players will no longer be penalized with a "Team Kill" if they shot a
vehicle that has Brick/Meteor activated before it kills a player. Now, when a
vehicle explodes while the Brick/Meteor mod is active, the resulting kills will
be attributed to the last person to drive the vehicle.

? CUSTOMISATION: Reworked height adjustment in the persona editor. This will
standardize the position of decals and controls, but when re-sizing a character
in the Persona Editor they will stretch from the middle rather than from the legs.
PLEASE NOTE: This may cause some decals/tattoos to now be miss-aligned.
Unfortunately this is a side effect of us resolving this issue.
Our apologies if this issue affects you.

? TASK ITEMS: Increased Task Interaction distance for Task Items.
This fixes an issue where players could park vehicles / ram props over
task items in order to stop them being intractable.

? CRASH FIXES: Fixed various client crashes.

? CHECKPOINTS: Moved the checkpoint on the Balcony, across the road
from the Casino in the Financial district, as it was very difficult to get
heavy task items to it.

? UI: Fixed an issue that was preventing the text highlights working in
the Ceremony messages.

? UI: Implemented the correct lighting setup for the inspect UI.

? UI - MUSIC STUDIO: If highlighted by the mouse pointer the
keyboard sections scrolls independently of the track section,
causing them to be misaligned. This is no longer the case.

? UI: Vendors should properly hide assets that are not for the player?s gender.
If they are shown for any other reason, it should at least show that
you cannot equip it because you are of the wrong gender.

? UI: Adding Prentiss Tiger's skin to list of available NTEC Skins.

? UI: Fixed and issue that would occasionally show a HUD marker,
for a player carrying a task item, in the wrong location.

? UI: Removing Simon Tran and Pagan Bloodrose from Waterfront contacts list.

? AUDIO: Removal of a broken audio emitter from Financial that was playing
club music in a residential area.

? AUDIO: Fixing audio on the Pioneer 'Inside-Out'.

? AUDIO: The SoundFX for Nitro is now (finally) working again!

? ENVIRONMENTS - FININACIAL: Tweaks to TipToe?s area to prevent players
exploiting the roofs. Changed the checkpoints on the upper floor of the car
park so that they are no longer vehicle drop-off points.

? ENVIRONMENTS - FINANCIAL: The back of the Praetorian sign on the offices
of Le Boyce has been fixed.

? ENVIRONMENTS - FINANCIAL: Lighting fixes for the doors in block across
the street from Le Boyce.

? ENVIRONMENTS - FINANCIAL: Fixed the ramp in front of the car park
that previously had a hole in it.

? ENVIRONMENTS - FINANCIAL: Fixed the bullet collision with the
Information desk in the Subway entrance.

? ENVIRONMENTS - FINANCIAL: Fixed the lighting issues around
Le Boyce's office area.

? ENVIRONMENTS - FINANCIAL: Fixed various areas in Financial that
previously allowed players to escape from the world.

? ENVIRONMENTS - FINANCIAL: Vehicle spawner put back in The Needles
after being accidentally removed in the previous patch.

? ENVIRONMENTS - SOCIAL: Players are no longer able to jump
out of bounds in the Social district.

? ENVIRONMENTS - WATERFRONT: Adding blocking volumes to Waterfront
and removed a mission prop that was both hard to capture and
provided access to an undesirable area.

? ENVIRONMENTS - WATERFRONT: Lighting fixes for an area behind
the Medical College that was not being lit correctly.

? ENVIRONMENTS - WATERFRONT: Door fixed at the back of the Medical
College so that it is the correct way around on both sides.

? ENVIRONMENTS - WATERFRONT: Fixed an exploit that allowed players
to warp inside a sewer pipe.

? ENVIRONMENTS - WATERFRONT: Fixed the lighting of props and
doors around a warehouse in Waterfront.

? ENVIRONMENTS - WATERFRONT: Fixed an issue with the visibility
of an out of bounds area in the south west section of Waterfront.

? ENVIRONMENTS - WATERFRONT: Fixed an issue that allowed
players to shoot through a wall at the dock in Waterfront.

? ENVIRONMENTS - WATERFRONT: Fixed various areas in Waterfront
that previously allowed players to escape from the world.

? ENVIRONMENTS - WATERFRONT: Adjusting blocking volume around
fence near Britney Bloodrose to prevent access to a balcony.

? ENVIRONMENTS - WATERFRONT: Moved some of the checkpoints
near the Villanueva, to make them more accessible.

Also everyone who logs in before Monday will receive a free 400 Joker Tickets as a welcome gift from Ophelia and Wilde. Head over to Breakwater Marina to find out what you can redeem them for.
