News & Announcements / 2022 Season 6 Launch and changelog
« on: May 20, 2022, 08:15:15 AM »
Hey Hey People

Season 6 is here. Server goes up 6pm CEST. Here's there client link. Old clients not recommended or support.

https://fonline-aop.net/cirnstuff/client_s6.zip

Core Changes:

- Most core Patrols are now single NPCs (except animals, muties and ghouls)
- Neutral patrols replaced by hostile ones
- Static mobs added in various places
- (Animal-) critters rebalanced, made easier
- Dungeon thugs are now less numerous in each dungeon
- Added more Material Crafting Stations around the Core.
- Reworked Economy, Prices at all workbenches are the same, Material processing more straight forward, more on that below
- Changed container resource spawns
- Reworked NPC Behavious inside Core as well as inside Dungeons. Players should see less unnecesarry fatal deaths in the Core. (remember to call for sugarman 3 times if stuck)
- Added small quests to neutral core NPCs
- Added an abandonded Mine with gecko spawns into the deep sewers (tutorial sewers, disconnected from the core, accessible through a manhole on the left side of the rats base

- Distillery Underground is now occupied by toxic geckos and Sharpwit Offices by aliens.
- Cyclical dungeons brought back for Junk Outpost Cave and San Tan Cave
- For those who missed it late last season, there are now various soloable dungeon locations throughout the core.

The Tec system:
- Tech points are gained by using science on processed materials. Processed materials are any crafting materials that are themselves crafted, like Gunpowder or iron, but not pelts, fibers or junk. Tech points are also gained from using relics found in the core (encrypted holodisk, chemistry journals, maps).
- Tech points are like a crafting resource that is stored on the character, they can not be traded.
- Tier 1 costs no tech. Tiers 2 to 5 cost 20% to 100% tech of base price. Tier 6 and up cost exponentially more tech points.
- The Server starts on tier 2 and ends on tier 5. This dictates mostly just merchant bags, meaning HQ merchant sells tier 5, with ZC Merchant selling tier 6 against reputation cost.
- Each tier requires an additional 20 engineering skill. Skill is raised by crafting the highest possible weapons.
- Armors, ammo and other craftable supplies require skill but have just nominal tech costs and do not contribute to global tec or personal skill level.
- All weapons, including tier 10, are unlocked from the start and only gated by skill and their respective costs.
- For reference: 1 cap in material value corresponds to 10 tech points.
- every 100 tech worth of items scienced, a "scrap" item is spawned for the purposes of selling it, it has no other use.

- Crafting higher tier items causes exhaustion which reduces over time and when you gain experience. When you are over 100% exhaustion, tech point costs for crafts are doubled for every multiple of 100%

The crafting system:

- There are 2 trees of basic resources: Iron, Steel and High Grade Steel for eras 1 through 3, as well as Fibers, Polymers and Kevlar for armor crafting. At any workbench, they can be processed into the next era acquivalent at a 10:1 ratio, meaning 10 Iron can be turned into Steel and 10 Polymers are turned into Kevlar. If done at a processing facility, this changes to a 5:1 ration.
- There are also optional Materials who act as catalysts, they increase the effeciency of the conversion. Adding Coal allows 10 Iron to be turned into a total of 8 Steel, and adding Mineral Powder when processing pelts doubles the amount of Leather thats gained.
- The economy assumes a 5:1 at a normal processing plant without the catalyst when it comes to calculating item prices. Example: Iron is 5 caps, Steel is 25caps, High grade steel is 125 caps. There is no value or tech point value gained when turning Iron into Steel, if the 5:1 conversion is used.
- This means there is a rough 3-5fold increase in item values between the eras.
- When it comes to sciencing, only era 1 materials (iron, wood, fiber, leather and gunpowder) can be recovered from items. An item that consist of 8 High Grade Steel and 4 Wood for example, will be treated as consisting of 8 Iron and 4 Wood for the purposes of sciencing

Character changes:

- Removed free Rerolls (1 free at register) in favor of Build Slots. Performing a reroll resets the active slot to level 1. Slots can freely be switched in HQs. Number of slots is determined by Lifetime total XP, taking all XP together that have ever been earned. Every 20 levels of lifetime xp unlocks a new slot, according to standard XP formula (20, 40, 60 etc). Noncombat skills are unaffected by rerolling and switching. There is an XP boost for new slots.
- Added a lot of Outdoorsman Stuff like planting, farming, looting and overall ways to level it up. All critters have a difficulty rating, determining failure chance, bonus loot and skill up chance. Harvesting, woodchopping and mining affected by outdoorsman skill.
- Carry Weight changes. (Armors carry themselves when worn and add a Strong Back perk (25 CW). New backpack Util slot items. Strength impact on CW halved. +1 CW per level past 24, up to 100.
- Leadership Boosts can be activated without first injecting Implant - but at 50% Efficiency. Injecting Implant will bring it back to 100% Efficiency.
- New Perk: Restless. Gain 5 AP/s when in negative AP.

Item Changes
- Some guns changed in playstyle: Gardner gun, M60, BAR
- Sand robes got a slight armor increase
- New Rat Jacket (era1) to help against melee critters
- Added Low-Tier Sneak Variant of Stealthboy. (Degradable, One-Use, worse in performance)

Faction Changes
- Selling trash loot items now properly feed the faction economy
- Prices of merchants have generally been increased against their base material cost
- Sewer rats now offer platoon bases for 15k caps
- Changed layout of zone control resources
- Base faction production is higher
- (WIP) Sewer Rats aka factionless players can sign up as a mercenary, temporarily joining this faction for purposes of zone control. There is a 24h timeout on switching. Rats should get proper (legendary-) score and everything, but expect some issues especially with payouts, since rats were not designed to have any.
- Faction invasion on rats will be enabled in the very near future, probably starting next week. Can't have shit in Phoenix.

Misc. Changes
- Extensive Sound Overhaul
- (WIP) Russian Translation Expanded, it will get regular updates in the next days.


Sneak Changes

Changes in Sneak Value happen gradually now in both directions.
Sneaking now revolves a lot around walls. Walls give you a huge bonus to your Sneak-Value but the further away you are, the easier you will be to spot. Being out in the open gives you a hard hit to your Sneak Value.
This incentivises sneak to be countered with open areas, as well as well-placed bursts or AoE Damage close to walls. Because changes happen gradually, you are still given the chance to skip by a small open pathway, as long as you are quick. Especially new Warmode will help you with that.
The Ghost perk increases the regain of your Sneak Value by +1Hex/sec. It will NOT slow the decay if you start moving away from a wall or start running.
There is a low-era Stealth-Boy variant called Camo-Netting. This item is non-rechargeable and breaks apart after 1 hour of use. It is worse in performance then the Stealthboy and has no warmode, but is available at Era 1.
When desneaking, you will suffer an "Exposed" Status Effect for 10 seconds. It will not stop you from going back into Sneak (There is still a reduced Sneak Cooldown for that). But it will decrease the amount of Sneak-Value you regain by 1Hex/sec, as well as cutting your Critical Resistance in half. Desneaking also causes a sound-effect to be heard by nearby combatants.
Warmode Cooldown is now 30 Seconds. And putting a Stealthboy into Warmode drains its charges 10 times faster. (This means Recon in Warmode, and Infiltrator always because Warmode is default behaviour for that). Warmode now increases Sneak Value regain by +1Hex/sec and decreases Sneak Value loss by 1Hex/sec.
In next 1-2 days open Cover that was giving Ghost bonus 2 years ago. (Fences, Tables, etc.) will give you 50% of the wall-bonus a solid wall gives you.

News & Announcements / 2021 Launch of Season 5 and Changelog
« on: April 20, 2021, 08:37:49 AM »
Here we go for season 5. Download links below. Come to discord.

https://discord.gg/SGvS6GNkD8

These changes are a non-exhaustive list of changes compared to last years season, not a full list of features.

Economy
Factions, and thus their merchants, now receive very little resources by themselves. Instead, misc items collected by players, and any other items sold to merchants, will be converted into merchant stocks. The value of misc item loot has been increased. Instead of automatically feeding the faction, ZC resources can be obtained by the player by purchasing access tokens to use on flags, spawning the available resources there. Use of tamed pack brahmins recommended.

If the stock depletes and there is a shortage, merchant stock disappears and their price increases, but players can make more money selling.

Wild brahmins can be tamed and sold to brahmin herder who converts them into pack brahmins with high carry weight.

Processing plants can be purchased and put into bases, including workbenches. Blueprints can be crafted at bases, but core facilities are cheaper and produce higher quality items.

It is now possible to mine ore, chop wood and obtain mutfruits and fibers from plants in certain core locations.

It is now possible to loot cars with melee weapons, causing the weapon to lose condition dependant on tier.

Dungeons:
PCG Dungeons now features 5 distinct bandit factions with different loot and gear choices and stats, including drug use and leadership boosts. Loot is also dungeon-themed where applicable.

During raids, bandits now gather at their grid, come out one by one, pick a number of random patrol points and patrol around for a while before returning (rather than just spawning and hoping they'll aggro on something)

Maryland dungeon loot has been increased but is now locked behind a keycard with a quest.

Core changes
The Patrol layout and patrol pool has been overhauled for every core map, resulting in a noticable difference in difficulty in the central zones, with outter zones being safer than before. The AI has been greatly improved, npcs now use drugs, may try to flee or heal allies and now use combat taunts.

The core life (static spawns) system has been extended with additional functionalities and types of spawns.

Container loot has been changed.

Zone control and PvP
ZC now has an underlying domination system, that tracks all fights throughout the day and calculates a score in order to try to dampen the effect of nightcapping/afk capping.

Additional pathways in HQs have been added for faction invasion.

Misc.
For each drop in quality from Perfect, every weapon and armor now gains a negative perk (dmod) up to 7 dmods at garbage condition. The time it takes to deplete condition is now twice as long, but repairs cost twice as much, equating the change (less repairs, same cost).

Bunch of new quests and repeatable core assignments added, all throughout different safehouses and sewer rats base.

Central 5 sewers have been replaced with new maps, corresponding to the surface. The old 5 maps have been made accessible through the sewer rats base with very weak patrols to act as a safer zone.

Safehouse travel and outpost travel now enabled but at a cost.

Rerolls still free for now.

New weapons in the lower tiers, mostly filling gaps in the tectree.

Weapon and character balance 99% unchanged.

Also: The server is going to start at Tier 2 and will be progressed through crafting higher tier items from blueprints (now in your base as well). Lower Tiers progress faster than higher ones, last Tier is 8.

Tech level Tier 2 at start
4 Factions + Loner Sewerrats
Full loot is on (duh)

New Features:
Multi Flag Zone control:
Each zone has a certain number of flags (1-4). ZC starts with a 5 minute initiation period to allow all factions to gather. After 5 minutes have passed, each flag has to be captured by at least 2 people staying within a ~10hex radius around a flag. After a flag has been captured, it will start generating points. One faction has to hold at least 50% of the flags in order to start generating points. Points gain is doubled when all flags are held. ZC duration is about 10-15 minutes.

Zone Cooldown: Zones cycle through a ~1 hour long active phases, followed by a 4-6 hour long inactive phase. ZC can only be initiated when a zone is marked as active. After changing ownership, a zone becomes inactive. Frontline mechanics are still in place, meaning that only neighboring zones can be captured.

Core Outposts:
There are 8 underground locations in the core which are marked on the map. They can be captured using flag mechanics similar to ZC, as long as the Zone above is being held safely by that faction (see control level changes below). The outposts act as a limited respawn points for their faction and also offer to lease out password protected containers. Outposts can be attacked by enemy factions if control over the surface zone is lost. This triggers a 24h period during which either side can enter the outpost. After capture, the containers will be opened and lootable.

Faction Invasion/Destruction:
When the enemy gate location is captured, a faction invasion event can be triggered by interacting with the base truck. This will schedule an event on the next saturday on a random hour in the european afternoon/evening. In the first phase, the enemy courtyard becomes accessible to everyone and a flag is spawned that has to be captured, using ZC flag mechanics. If the attackers succeed in taking the courtyard, the rest of the base becomes accessible, including ROOMS and BASES. The attackers then have to push to the heart location flag and detonate a nuke within the capture radius of said flag. This kills the faction. Nukes are crafted from rare blueprints and can go boom, causing death and radiation. When a faction is destroyed, all faction members are turned into neutral sewer rats and can join another faction. Their rooms and bases remain accessible, to anyone.

The season ends once only one faction remains.

Notable Changes to last season:
Tec prog is now advanced by players through crafting blueprints. Each such craft will show progress to next level.

Zone Control levels: There are only 2 control levels, a rank symbol in the top right corner of the map means that it is a safe zone, as the frontline requirements are such that no other faction would be able to attack it. No symbol means that this is not the case and the map is vulnerable. A safe zone is required to claim outposts.

Advanced blueprints are now available within the core, resulting in gear that is 2 tiers higher than current global tech level.

Core patrols have been overhauled in terms of frequency, distribution and strength, in line with container spawn value and ZC reward values. The central 8 zones around hospital offer the highest risk and reward.

Hell hole and maryland archives are now accessible again.

Known Bugs:

The holdout events dont currently end. Expect to die.
There might be holes in walls due to very recent changes, please report these with an annotated screenshot.
Loot spawns in a few old dungeons might be wonky.

News & Announcements / 4/20 Test Season
« on: April 20, 2019, 01:30:57 PM »
Hey hey people

Within the next hours, we will launch a test season. The parameters of the test are as follows:
- There will most likely be item wipes, but no character wipes.
- The season will end and proper season 3 will be launched, once all features listed below have been implemented and are working properly
- The point of the test season is mostly to test the new global economy, as almost all other aspects like factions, zc, dungeons, tech progression and items are deeply integrated into it.
- It is not planned to take down the server for any extended periods of time between this test season and proper season 3
- As listed below, while many new frameworks are in place, they need to be filled with content which will happen as the test progresses.
- Church and Hounds have been temporarily removed as a joinable faction


Changelog summary:

1. PvE
1.1 The Wilderness


The world map is replaced with 31x31 "wilderness" maps, dynamically generated upon start of the season, traversed through green grids like the core, which hold a set amount of resources that are not being respawned throughout the season. From a players perspective, there is no "world map" anymore. The core is a 7x7 block sat in the center of the wilderness and accessed through the gates.

Cosmetic work, as well as implementation of critters and loot will progress throughout the test season.

1.2 Tech Progression

Almost all ingame items are placed on a tech tree that is 10 tiers deep. The season starts at the bottom of the tree, with an available bracket of 5 tiers, meaning if the server is on tier 3, items from tiers 1 through 5 can be encountered in the world. The server will continuously advance through the tiers, with increased speed in lower tiers and a smooth progression.

This test season will remain at tier 7 throughout its run, meaning there will be items from tiers 5-9. Energy weapons are rarely found on npcs as they are laregely reserved for high tiers (8+). For big guns, it's normal that tiers 3 or 4 are found, due to gaps in individual tech trees.

1.3 Crafting

Raw materials are gathered in the wilderness in different biomes and dynamic mines underneath mountain maps. In terms of crafting components, there are 3 eras, roughly spanning tiers 1-3, 4-6 and 7-10. Raw materials and lower quality components have to be processed through core-based and/or homebuilt processing plants. Crafting is the only way to obtain the higher tier items in the current bracket, referred to as t+1 and t+2 items. This is done through blueprints found in higher difficulty dungeons and core-events, and require the use of core facilities.

Wilderness resources will be patched in in the coming days/weeks, starting with an underground mine layer.

1.4 Economy

All monetary prices and resource craft prices are based on their weight and their components, which is then modified by the current tech level, resulting in high tier items being very expensive, with their price and crafting cost dropping as the tech level progresses. Most raw materials found in the wilderness are finite, the only stable source of items is loot dropped by npcs.

1.5 The Core

A 7x7 area of bigger, handmade maps sat in the center of the game world, featuring lots of strong enemies and an increasing amount of dungeons, basements, caves and upperfloors, which generally have better loot and stronger enemies than the surface core. The Inner 3x3 zones around the central hospital also have better loot and stronger mobs than the outter maps.

1.6 Dungeons Revised

Procedurally developing dungeons which become stronger as time passes and are able to influence its surrounding by raiding population and faction stockpiles for resource and scavenge.

Old dungeons like Hell Hole, Maryland and Robco are only partially functional, others like Warmart Level 2 and Adams School are left unchanged as they will slowly migrate to using the new system. However, many other new dungeons have been added throughout the core.


2. PvP

2.1 Zone Control

ZC is now disconnected from score gains and focusses solely on core ownership. Each zone has a monetary value which increases the payout pool referred to in the following point. ZC is only possible on neighboring maps of already controlled zones or the gate, and there are different levels of control based on how long a zone has been held, making it harder to capture overnight and affecting the amount of patrol spawns and faction recon (see 2.3)

2.2 Clashes

The clashes system includes a redesigned scoring system which takes all kinds of data into account to reward players for all pvp that is happening on the surface core as well as inside dungeons and sewers, making sure combat is always rewarded. The reward is paid out in faction specific currency and is to a large extent based on ZC-dependant zone income and is distributed among all players of a faction depending on their pvp activity. As usual, rewards come in the form of paychecks that have to be collected from a faction clerk as a regular income.

2.3 Faction Recon

Tracks all hostile player movements on faction-owned maps and adjacent zones to make early alarm / safe space / usable intel advantage to faction participating in ZC. Tracks Clashes and ZC happening in core and provides on-map icons for that.

2.4 Combat Mechanics

Aside from new additions in the low- to medium tier weaponry to allow more specialized builds in lower tiers, there are no new mechanics or major changes introduced and the gameplay is based on previous seasons and tournaments. Almost all work between seasons 2 and 3 went into PvE aspects or global mechanics like economy.


3. Global Conquest
3.1 Personal claims

All players can purchase a personal claim which is an item that can freely be placed anywhere in the wilderness, creating a buildzone for that player, allowing him to construct his own safe home with respawn points, containers and workbenches.

This will be introduced later on during the test season.

3.2 Outposts

As part of the endgame, platoons can purchase outpost claims, granting them the sole ownership of a whole wilderness map and preventing other outposts from being established in the surrounding area. Outposts are more secure, offer a lot more room for storage and are an important part of future larger scale features. Both outposts and personal claims might be subject to attacks on certain event times during the weekend.

This feature will be implemented later during the test season.

Additional smaller features include:

- Updated and 100% accurate FoV display, activated with ctrl + F
- Extended sewer network and new dungeons
- Extended functionality of FMOD sound engine, moving more sounds from fonline to fmod, adding direction
- Updated behavior of flames
- Critter shenanigans

New features first in the pipeline:

- Addition of on-map cross-core Bandit raids, which are currently only virtual. This means dungeon npcs leaving the dungeon to raid surrounding coremaps.
- Addition of cross-core faction caravans to transport resources produced by the zone back to the faction HQ

Other features on the list for Season 3 proper:

- Vehicles
- Weapon mods
- Neutral factions, both inside and outside the core

Known issues as of now:
- Core containers deleting items as they are being looted. This happens when a respawn tick happens just after a player opened a container.
- Missing blockers and broken looking buildings in the wilderness.
- All critters spawning with roughly half their HP and with low healing rate
- Occasionally strange AI behavior

The HQ Outposts are 2 maps away from the gates, check the message log as you cross zones to find the direction to the core.

For not having been on discord, your are surprisingly well informed.

I dont think we ever really made a "proper" announcement for it, but "removal of world map" means it's going to be replaced with a generated world, which would be different for each season

what videocard do you have? you didnt mention that and it's the most important part. I never had any issues with fonline and I can run all kinds of exes on all servers. I did however try to use one pc that was made for audio recording and only had onboard graphics, which was not able to run the "Normal" mapper which I believe is dx and had to run the d3d instead, so maybe it's an issue with non-desktop video cards.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I am just curious about the roles being poorly managed bit. For the most part they are in direct relation to their roles on the forums. Only moderators and devs have the power to actually moderate users if that is what you are complaining about.
Homosexual references aren't against the rules even a little bit as this is not Russia or Syria, however personally I'd prefer there not be any porn or gore posted, which I will delete if I see it (these violate rule 1.) There is only one moderator currently as there aren't many mods on the forums either.
The nature of the FOnline community is that it is in many ways toxic and crude due to lack of moderation over many years, it would be out of character to suddenly go SUPER STRICT when few rules are enforced elsewhere. Personally, I'm not at all a fan of rampant racism or promoting fringe philosophies for their "shock" or "edge" value, but telling a FOnline player not to do those things is like telling a monkey not to eat a banana.

FOnline communities are not "safe spaces." As all things though there are still limits, of course.
That's why erryone just gotta be cool, yo.
The problem of our times is that this has to be said in the first place.

also,
Spoiler for Hiden:

hellmai clearly knows the state of the fonline community and is merely using any opportunity to fling shit at the devs and we all took the bait
