Patch Notes

Here we are with a new patch, more bug fixes, QoL changes and some extras!

So let's start with some new things that we added.

Server optimizations

  • So we looked into lag, as no one likes lag. And we did something awesome, items that repeated a lot on the island (doors etc..) we found a way how to lower servers awareness of those items, and we gained a massive boost, up to 5x faster. Down bellow you can check out how the whole process went.

  • Also we deployed a new master server and that means faster server list browsing!

    New weapons!
    • M1891

      We added a new family member to the rifles in SCUM. The M1891, a five-shot, bolt-action rifle. It uses the 7.62x54mmR cartridge, and it can be found in military areas.
    • Eder 22

      Eder 22 is a new gun that uses 9×19mm Parabellum cartridge, and you need to find a magazine if you don't want to feed the bullets 1 by 1. It can be found all around the island, but the best locations to find it are around military and police areas.

  • Fortify in the name of God.
    • The continental church can be fortified from now on.

  • Feed me more!
    • As cooking is being reworked, we will need to rework some other stuff as well, for starters how our fire system works. We added a new mechanic where you can add materials to your fire so it doesn't go out. It looks something like this:
    • Keep in mind that there is a cap on how long the fire burns. The one in the picture burns up to 120 minutes, and different materials add more or less time, from just a few seconds up to 60 minutes. The cap can not be pushed over. If the fire has been burning for 10 minutes and you add a material that can add 60 minutes of fuel, you will only gain 10 minutes from that material. Here is a list of items that you can use:
      • Paper - 10s

      • Rag stripes - 15s

      • Tinder - 30s

      • Gun powder - 30s

      • Rags - 30s

      • Improvised rope - 60s

      • Tree bark rope - 60s

      • Short wooden stick - 1:30min

      • Rope - 2min

      • Long wooden stick - 5min

      • Kitchen board - 10min

      • Small wooden log - 30min

      • Wooden plank - 60min
    • If you use an item that has uses, all uses will be depleted and the item will be destroyed

    • In the future we want the fire to have a visual indicator of how long it's burning by changing the fire intensity. If the fire has just recently been lit, it's going to be big and roaring, and if it's almost burned up, you'll see a tiny flame. Those states will also impact cooking in the future.
