Release: 23 March 2014

We appreciate everyones patience in getting this patch released to stable, the bug in 0.42 that caused lag and desync was very hard to track down and fix.

  • New zombie animations in testing (they are considerably faster). We will be engaging with the community to decide if these new animations result in the zombies being too fast.
  • Servers now support accelerated time as a configurable option. This results in faster day/night cycle.
  • Hotfix to address issues associated with severe lag and desync for many players.

ETA: Complete, 5 February 2014

Version: 0.33.114855 0.33.114926

This build continues with small bugfixes and several engine changes. A late addition of a significant change to the server variable processing has provided us a major performance boost on the server of around 5-10 FPS.

Once several more of these optimizations are made it will allow us to increase player/zombie numbers and enable loot and zombie respawning.
