Lighting, Aiming Reticules and Crosshairs
It is update time! We’re working right now on polishing in preparation for Robocraft 2’s entry into Steam Next Fest. A bunch of new players will join us over that time and we hope that they’ll enjoy the game and be a part of our community leading up to launch later this year!
Surprise! The new interior lighting is now live! We shared the first look of this just a couple of days ago and you can see it in action via these images
We have some more improvements to the environment planned that we’ll share later too!
REAL TIME AIMING RETICLES AND CROSSHAIR
We have also made live the new aiming system! Most noticeably you’ll see the crosshair updated with new visuals. And depending on the weapon you use, you’ll see a different Crosshair.
For example, this is the new Plasma crosshair:
You’ll be able to see exactly when the next shot can be fired as the recharge bar on the side fills!
We also have small real-time aiming reticles that show in real time where your gun is currently aiming.
This can actually be particularly useful even if a weapon has been shot off as you can still see where it is aiming. I’ve used this personally to help guide my shots for plasma when the gun is still on the top of my machine.
If you are using multiple weapons, the crosshair will select the most useful crosshair for that particular build. So for example, if you have a plasma and Laser set up, it will show the crosshair for plasma because you need to see the reload speed of Plasma. All weapons will show the real-time aiming reticles
TECH LADDER CHANGES
When we introduced the timer to Robocraft 2 for the tech Ladder, we said we’d remove it once servers were up 24 hours a day. We have now done that. But we’ve also reduced the amount of Robits needed to progress through each step of the tech ladder. Essentially, every match you play could give you enough Robits to unlock the next step of the Tech Ladder.
BATTLE GATE OPTIMISED
We have also updated the Battle Gate which will make it use less resources as it is built with fewer blocks.
POWERFUL ROBOT SWITCH UP
The Powerful Robots have had a bit of a switch up on the maps! Ma’adim terminus will now feature the Marauder while Helas Basin will include the Judicator.
ONE OF THE MOST REQUESTED BUG FIXES IS LIVE!
A HUGE requested bug fix has now been made live! You should no longer see the camera go inside your robocraft when parts like turrets are destroyed.
We’ve added support for the following languages on Steam
SERVER FIXES AND LOGGING
We’ve been working on some other fixes to server crashes that have been reported and added more logging so that we can help identify issues and debug other reported crashes.
Thank you everyone for the huge support over the last week. If you haven’t wishlisted Robocraft 2 already! Please do so at: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1991140/Robocraft_2/
