Added stuff (T2 armor and weapon) and level (6+) requirement to enter a zone during ZC timer.

What about dead players returning to grab their gear?

Remove this for people who have been in the zone with proper gear when zone control starts. This way somoene that died can return to the battlefield and regain his gear.

That would mean someone with bad intentions can die one time and come back again for free. That's would ruin our attempt here, especially if the guy was there from the start of the timer.

Could we have Alt+Click on items in the inventory which would automatically put them into a container? Drag-dropping is annoying, clicking would be sooooo much better...

- Phoenix Archives dungeon will be back after next server restart.

Quick question about this.  Are there plans in action for a server restart, or scheduling for a regular wipe of sorts?  I jumped in a little late (only a few days in if that) just in time for the tutorial to have just been removed.  It's unfortunate that the tutorial couldn't have been made a shared experience (maybe an individual map for each faction with respawn timers) but the total lack thereof left me a little at odds with what was going on.  I like a lot of the implementations of the game itself, but I felt like it left me with only two options:

1) Suck.  Hard.  Thanks to the combat timer being removed, I've been able to start low-level assignments and grind a punch or two before dashing for the exit.  Very diminishing results, unfortunately, even in Metal Armor two tribals would easily overwhelm resulting in exploitation being the only means of progression.  At least I did eventually see a level or two from this tactic, but it was never successful enough to complete even the simplest of assignments.  The one time I thought I had accomplished something I returned to be told I hadn't done anything.  I guess I should've expected a context saying I'd finished the assignment anyhow?  I wouldn't know, I haven't finished one yet... :)

2) Pony up on all the T2 arms and armors that are seemingly growing off of trees.  I've had zero luck selling anything to merchants beyond a cap at the time for junk, though it was almost worth jumping for joy to find something I could effectively sell.  Thanks to player helpfulness (awesomeness, I've seen a lot of really kind gestures from existing players to new) there's no "market" to try to sell anything to players out of the gate.  Like I said, that's awesome.  I'm really interested in party play, so I like to see it.  That said, I really like to get my bearings a little bit and self-sustain a little.  I'm not above receiving help, but I can't help but feel like it's all but required at this point. 

Level 1 characters are extremely beefy, thankfully.  Am I wrong to feel like removing the tutorial as it were skewered the ability for independent startup?  To my understanding it was removed due to exploitation.    Understandably, some people have more time to play than others and will naturally progress much faster. 

I originally intended just to ask the opener to the quote, but while I'm at it I have one more question if you please.  I understand melee/HtH options would suffer tremendously if they weren't comparable to their ranged counterparts, but should the HtH damage be quite so high?  I equipped a melee weapon and my damage actually went down.  Hopefully it evens out as the ranged character gets access to higher quality weapons, but out the gate it makes more sense to lose the weapons and brawl.  No need to reload and that most enemies starting off in low tier assignments will already close in to engage with their fists, spears, or knives makes the ranged advantage not so great.

Also, it seems weapons are randomized based on your tagged primary skill;  Wouldn't it be better to establish some standard?  One character I rolled wound up with a .44 with a nice long effective range.  Next time, I wound up with a 9mm hand cannon (can't remember the exact name) with an effective range of 15 or something similarly low.  This would be fine if there was a damage difference or even slight enough of one to make the two weapons comparable.  Half the range for roughly the same damage potential?  In the long run, it probably doesn't matter much but again this is from the get go.   

Ha, sorry for the wall of text.  To summarize, is there a wipe schedule?  Thoughts on removing the tutorials effect on the in-game economy for the new player?  Does unarmed continue to grow in damage with skill points, or is it a flat rate from the start supplemented then only by unarmed weapons?  What's the deal with randomizing start weapons?  Thanks in advance!

The primary reason for the removal of the tutorial is teh fact that it slows down the server and lead to incredible lags, with everybody starting at the same time. Even now, big fights in the core take its toll on the cpu and cause lags for every player, which we are of course trying to fix.

The tutorial would have given each new chear a head start with a number of different tier 1 weapons a couple thousand xp, enough to reach 150 in a primary skill. What I suggest you to do is to lay your hand on a 10mm smg, it should be easy to craft and the ammo is easy to come by. Just use single shots to conserve ammo but when in a pinch, the burst mode (try to burst as close to the enemy as possible) can help.

The gear and equipment is much more important than character level. Armors are very important, too and they can be hard to come by in a good condition. Craft metal armors from alloys and metal parts  found in the core and craft 10mm smgs or ak-47's. With a 50% metal armor and an AK you should be able to complete assignments by yourself to level up and earn some caps to invest in 100% condition armor.

Vendors sell items based on the amount of zones you control.

Thanks for that update, grieves me to not see a string with the "supersledge and ripper now both have aimed types of attack" text, but hey, at least something...

deathclaws in fallout were always supposed to be super deadly AND FAST - even though f1/f2 was turn based combat, those damn DC had enough action points to catch up to you in one turn or max two if you hadn't exited yet. I think their speed should be even faster, so that if you see them and they see you and you cant exit map FAST you are in for a fight ;)

I was asked to revise mob stats by the rest of the dev team, so here we go!

In next update, many animal stats (especially hps and speeds) will be revised again. You can expect deadly Deathclaws that won't let themselves be trolled anymore. In general, the stronger mob versions will move faster than the weaker ones, with the strongest running faster than the regular human speed. That's the case for example for Patriarch and Mother Deathclaws, Grey Deathclaws, Hellfire geckos, Aliens matriarchs, Primary Centaurs and Ancient Floaters. The experience they give will be adapted (increased) to fit to the challenge they'll represent.

Spawn tables will also be changed so that you can identify with more certainty which mob family is present on a type of map or on a core map in particular. The strongest mobs will spawn less frequently in general, and that will be the same with human groups.

Will you add a timer for aggro-NPCs that spawn right on the player to be inactive for a couple of seconds?
