    TOXIKK PATCH #009, PARSLEY BUILD, V0.89
    RELEASE DATE: SEPTEMBER 05, 2015
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    GENERAL

    This patch brings your V0.88 Parsley build up to V0.89. It's the last patch of the Parsley generation before reaching Ginger (the last gen before 1.0... whoohoo).

    This patch focuses on tech fixes and brings also some new feautres. The upcoming map (Dekk) will be the opener of the 0.9 Ginger generation and is not included in this update, but you'll have a lot of fun playing around with the new mutator system (coming with 14 mutators).

    As always, we're very excited to hear your feedback on the new features and fixes...


    NEW FEATURES

    FTR_01 - MUTATOR SYSTEM
    A system that allows you to select and configure mutators for Boot Camp (single-player bot matches) or your server.


    FTR_02 - 14 FRESH MUTATORS
    The first batch of mutators. Some configurable, some static, some for bot-matches only... but all fun and most of them can be combined with others (try Floaty Grav with Instagib!).

      01) SLUG MODE
      Slow down the pace of a match. AKA slow-motion.

      02) INSTAGIB
      The most wanted mutator (based on Chatouille's Avada Kedavra):
      Every hit kills instantly!

      03) FAST FORWARD
      If the standard pace isn't fast enough, try Toxikk on steroids.

      04) ONE GUN (Configurable)
      Only one gun is available the entire match. This mutator is configurable.

      05) BUBBLE HEAD
      Beware of headshots: The better your K/D, the bigger your head.

      06) FLOATY GRAV (Configurable)
      Lower Gravity, higher jumps... our Low Gravity Mutator.

      07) RESPAWN DELAY (Configurable)
      Adjust the minimum respawn time. Very interesting mutator for Cell Capture matches.

      08) BUDDY KILL
      Toggle friendly fire. Hits will cause 50% damage on team mates.

      09) NO MAGIC
      Excludes the super pick-ups from the game (Jet Pack, Hellraiser, Mega Health, Mega Shield etc.)

      10) CONFIRM CAM (Boot Camp only)
      Short slo-mo effect after each performed kill.

      11) SPEED SHOT
      Doubles the fire rate of all weapons.

      12) NO HOVERBIKE
      Excludes hoverbikes from vehicular warfare maps.

      13) NO STEALTH
      Don't like the 2-seconds stealth shield? This mutator disables it.

      14) NOOB AID
      Extra armor and better spawn weapon for players who fall behind.


    FTR_03 - SERVER BROWSER ENHANCEMENTS
    The server browser now supports managing your favorite servers and sorting per favorites and mutators. The last selected sorting mode is now permanently saved (i.e. will remain the active sorting method over all matches until you select another method).

    FTR_04 - SERVER LAUNCHER NOW SUPPORT MUTATORS
    Our external server launcher tool now supports the handling and the configuration of mutators.

    FTR_05 - CHAT HISTORY
    The chat log (chat history) remains available over multiple matches now.

    FTR_06 - FASTER MAP TRAVEL AFTER MATCHES
    Once all players have voted (i.e. entered ready state), the 3-seconds travel countdown starts instantly.


    FIXES

    FIX_01 - EMPEROR RANK BUG
    There was a bug that didn't allow you to reach the Emperor rank/achievement. This should be fixed now.

    FIX_02 - MEMORY LEAK ON DEDICATED SERVERS
    There was a bug that had to do with the sniper scope that caused a memory leak on dedicated servers. This should be fixed now (another hat tip to Chatouille).

    FIX_03 - SERVER DETAIL VIEW: PLAYER RANKS AND SKILL CLASSES
    Player ranks and SC were displayed wrong in certain situations in the server details view. This was fixed.

    FIX_04 - MAP TRAVELING ON LISTEN SERVERS
    Clients occasionally disconnected when travelling between matchs on listen servers. This should no longer happen.

    FIX_05 - BLANK SLOT BUG FOR EXTERNAL SERVER BROWSERS
    There was a bug that sometimes caused the display of flawed stats for servers and matches on external server browsers (i.e. not the game internal server browser). This should be fixed now (another hat tip to Chatouille).

    FIX_06 - STINGRAY AND RAVAGER BEAM IMPACT EFFECTS FIX
    The impact effects of the Stingray and the Ravager are now displayed in the correct color (i.e. team color related). The team colors were ignored before.

    FIX_07 - MAP: GANESHA FIXES
    Ganesha map was once again updated with a newer version that features many small fixes etc.

    FIX_08 - COLORIZED ADMIN MESSAGES
    Admin messages are now correctly colored and more easily visible.

  • Is there an ETA on the server updates and will any of the official servers have some mutators turned on?

  • There are already official servers running with the instagib mutator. Go to the server browser and then "sort by mutators" to find them.

  • Damn! I'm loving the CRZMutator_FastForward mutator!
    Currently running a server with that and CRZMutator_SpeedShot. The Violator is just nuts with these 2 combined! lol

  • A good range of choices that encourage like-minded players to play together, thanks. The game is playing quite nicely now, with fewer awkward issues, and I'm looking forward to Ginger 0.9.
