Hello folks happy Friday! Nope, it's not 0.5 yet but don't worry it's coming just a little bit more patience. In the meanwhile we are back with our regular updates for you, so kick back, relax and enjoy.
It's been a while but fret no further, the single BB doors are making their return. Weather you want to make a whole maze system, make an escape route or just don't want people entering with vehicles.
And yes these new doors are upgradeable!
As you might've already seen in an announcement made, we have changed the way locking doors work. Instead of just having 5 slots free willy nilly, it is now divided into sections:
This was setup due to balancing reasons. Originally there were always 3 locks maximum planned for the doors.
Level 1 doors will have 2 slots for locks and 1 slot for zappers.
Level 2 doors will have 2 slots for locks and 2 slots for zappers.
Level 3 doors will have 3 slots for locks and 2 slots for zappers.
Pre built doors and cabin doors will have 3 slots for locks and 1 slot for zappers.
Some major changes coming to the cargo drop.
From now on you will see a screen on the cargo drop giving you a timer of how long you got before the drop goes kaboom. Why is this important? Well from now on all lockers inside cargo drops will be locked. That's right, from now on you won't be able to just rush it get all the gear grab it and run off in 1min. Need to put the effort in. However, when the timer hits 25 seconds all lockers will automatically get unlocked. So you still have time to grab something and run.
Now you might be thinking: "I don't like lockpicking, these changes seem to be a bit harsh."
Well finally we have a solution for you.
Crowbar lock breaking can be done only on lockers on the island ( in police stations, inside bunkers, cargo drop lockers).
So what else do you need to break those pesky locks? Well the action is tied to the STR stat and Thievery skill. Higher those numbers are the quicker you will get it open, but if those 2 are too low don't worry you can still get it open, it just takes a bit longer. Also be careful about the noise there, breaking locks is not exactly a ninja thing to do.
Breaking locks this way will damage your crowbar and the contents of the container.
Gone are the days of endlessly drinking from wells!
Wells and water pumps now have a finite amount of water in them. They refill over time and you can always check the amount of water in a well by holding F on it and pressing the new "Check" function.
Now why does that matter you ask?
Because now you can do so much more with your bottles instead of drinking them and throwing them away. You can now transfer liquids between different containers!
Don't want to carry an entire gasoline canister with only 6 uses? Fill that empty Lime Soda in your inventory with gasoline!
You want to gather some fuel reserves at the gas station but don't have a gasoline canister? Those 11 empty water bottles will do the trick!
By holding "F" on a container with liquid, you have 2 new options - Check and Spill.
By using the "Check" function you will get a notification telling you which liquid is in the container.
By using the "Spill" function, you will spill its contents on the ground, allowing you to fill it with a different liquid.
You also do not have to trek to the nearest shore or lake or river to wash you clothes, you can now scrub that blood off at any well! Squeaky clean!
Oh and btw before you madmen start building wells on top of wells on top of wells, only one 1 Water well can be placed per flag, and water wells are disabled outside flag areas.
No longer will you have to fret about sneaky squadmates grabbing stuff from chests and vehicles they shouldn't have access to!
Now you can set specific permissions for locks on vehicles and chests in regards to the squad rank!
If you want a chest or vehicle to be locked for everyone regarding of squad rank, you have the "Private" option.
The squad ranks from highest to lowest are as follows:
Boss, Underboss, Enforcer, Member.
'Underboss' lock access allows only him and the Boss ranks to access the inventory.
'Member' lock access allows all ranks to access the inventory.
The person who placed the lock on the chest or vehicle will always have access to it.
Weapons and attachments, always had a special place in our hearts. Everyone likes to costumize their weapons their own way so we added 2 more attachments to the roster.
2 new suppresors for all you loud ninjas out there, one for the Mosin Nagant M1891 and one for the Kar98 rifle. These can be found in WW2 bunkers, just be careful with the mines!

We have a new feature incoming for Private servers, and a highly requested one. You can now officially set up your own PvE zones!
Something new you should find in your server settings is a section dedicated to Custom PvE Zones.
They work similar to how you setup custom zones to play in. Set your X and Y coordinates where the center of the zone will be, set the radius of the zone, determine which types of damage do you want to block or allow, and give your zone a cool name!
Server needs to be restarted after each change .
The following damages can be blocked or allowed:
Melee Weapon Damage,
Explosive Damage (including vehicle explosions and suicide puppet explosions)
Hey hey, people. Time for another regular update! Not 0.5 yet but an important step towards it. Find out more below!
With this update we have transitioned from 4.25 to 4.26.
Now what does this mean? Well a lot of things in the future and a major step towards 0.5. One might say the biggest step. It allows us much needed support for the features planned for 0.5. The transition tho might not be as easy as we see it or is expected. Or better yet some issues and problems are expected right now but better to get them away now rather than have them in 0.5.
So please any and all issues you may encounter in this patch, no matter how small or big please report them to us so we can improve the experience for everyone!
Even though we know yall managed to make your own "improvised metal/mine detectors", here are some actual legit ones.
Heading to a well known POI and don't want to die from mines? Pop out the metal detector.
You have a suspicion that some sneaky nemesis buried his loot in the area? Pop out the metal detector.
You want to roleplay that weird old guy at the beach looking for treasure? Pop out the metal detector.
Want to find remnants of aliens so you can bother everyone on social media? Pop out the metal detector.
So how does it work ingame?
First off we have 2 of them as the picture shows, military and improvised. So here is the difference between them.
Improvised cannot be repaired while Military can be with Electrician toolkit.
Military has bigger range than improvised.
Military holds bigger battery than improvised.
To craft an improvised metal detector, in addition to items required you will also need at least medium engineering skill.
Now, as for the mechanic itself it's pretty simple. You will need to have the detector in your hands and some battery charge. Then simply press TAB and right click it for the Turn on option.
Your character will start sweeping the ground looking for any metal. Proper metal not that pozer stuff the mainstream listens to, but that hardcore band you found one night drunk at 3am on youtube.
You will hear beeping sound and closer you are to a find the more frequent will beeping be. It is that simple.
Alright hoarders your time to shine now. Presenting further lock protection!
Got tired of the same old zappers and want some spice in that zap? We got you.
There are now 3 different zappers:
Level 1- Basic
Level 2 - Medium
Level 3 - Advanced
For each zapper you need the appropriate engineering skill. So basic for basic, medium for medium and advanced for advanced.
Appropriately they each do different damage:
Level 1- 0.5 per fail.
Level 2 - 1 per fail.
Level 3 - 1.5 per fail.
Now you see the previous change of separating slots was actually planned, shocking I know!
Or better to say one sign. Yo want to tell people you mean business about protecting your base? Or you could just place it on empty field to troll others. A new sign got you covered:

Fixed the bug where the game would reset your settings on restart.

A new command is added:

Command #destroyVehicle <idOrAlias> can be used with ID or alias.
Command #listSpawnedVehicles will now also display the alias of the vehicle if it has one as the last column.
Command #teleportToVehicle <idOrAlias> <player> can be used with ID or alias.
That's all from us for now folks, but there is still one more thing. If you are reading this and still don't have the game, what are you waiting for? SCUM is currently 40% off on Steam. Get it for yourself, get it for your friends, hell get it for your nana. See you out there on the island!
