I want to know who gets permission to dismantle structures placed at these bases, especially when they flip.

If everybody can, then we'll just have to teamkill all the griefers who will try to tear the base down to screw their faction over?

If nobody can, then now we have to friendly fire a wall that's in the way and get weapons lock?

And if the walls don't change faction, how do we know they won't disappear in a minute because the owner - on the enemy faction - placed a few new walls to despawn the old ones?

Great questions. I’m sure design will provide more information on the details of capture and ownership as we get closer to a PTS release.

As someone who often gets sniped or attacked while browsing these types of terminals; Would it be possible to add a few cover walls adjacent to the terminal screen so you're less exposed? You're not able to reliably fight back while you're stuck inside a purchase menu.

A great point. I’ll pass it along to design to see what they say.


Capture Point Silo WIP

Hey gang, it's been a spell so I thought I'd drop some more WIP work your way. As mentioned by Wrel in the dev notes; the capture points on each continent -- which were previously small capture terminals -- will now be replaced with a more unique looking Cotrium Capture Point Silo.

Just a reminder, this is a WIP and taken in blender as it's not complete in game yet. FX pass, sound and design are going to take a pass on it too. Once FX has a pass on it there will be plenty of visuals to communicate activity and ownership from afar. The silo itself is just large enough to be seen from a distance and support minor cover.

I'm actually already d...

Absolutely. I agree with a lot of the problems others have already identified.

these changes to Oshur, are they just construction related or also general play space related

not asking for specifics as I know how sensitive giving those too early can be

General playspace adjustments. For example: Mirror Bay will receive some adjustments (or be removed outright.)

When can we expect a new patch ? Emerald still is suffering from some rough lag on Amerish

We're still working on the server performance issues. Found a few culprits this morning that seem pretty bad. Discussing with the team how to proceed.

Oshur is receiving some changes alongside the Construction update, which should time out around April with our current pace. You should all start seeing some playable Construction material later this month.

Not sure if you can give us any information on this, but /u/alapidis, how far off do you think we can expect a PTS test on this? Considering the WIPs we have seen so far I believe we are still quite a bit off?

Sorry, I don't have any info on dates I can give out.

Very nice. One thing that confuses me though are the gradual ramps. My designs usually go for fairly steep ramps in order to minimize the amount of room that they take up. Makes placement easier for both this and adjacent buildings.

Ramps need to be long enough to support the deep skirt of the structure (to allow for varying terrain heights on all sides). Stairs would have to lead out expanding the footprint but these ramps that run flush with the wall keep the footprint smaller but provide an access slope that works with a variety of elevations.

Looking good! The only thing I would suggest would be editing the roof to have a one way shield so that air lock ons could be fired out (like the yellow roof shields on other types of spawn room)

The command center has that. This is a small pillbox for fast spawning but it design wants to add a roof shield I can easily. Let’s wait till we see all the new pieces together.

Any terminals included?

Not sure. That’s up to design. Still making all the new pieces for them to work with so we’ll see.
