Changelog 08/02/2020
« on: February 08, 2020, 17:34 »
In this update, various features have been radically improved and new content has been made available. In-game contributors have collectively gathered suggestions from the Fonline2 community. Alongside with the developers, these peculiar suggestions have been implemented for this final update.

FEATURES:
- New Blueprint Buyer in Gun Runners:
The Gun Runners trader is buying Pre-War Blueprints for 500 caps each. The Gun Runners are in permanent need of these schematics for their factories, as they need to deliver high-end weaponry throughout the wasteland.  The Gun Runners is located in Adytum, Boneyard.

- Weapon Stat Rerolling in Gun Runners:
The Gun Runners are proud to announce their services to the wasteland. For a fee, they are taking weapons from wastelanders and upgrading them to become even deadlier. They guarantee that your weapons will be at least Enhanced quality, go to the Gun Runners today and find out!

This the list of weapons they have provided to upgrade in exchange for bottle caps:

- New Hostile Random Encounters:
Enclave and Brotherhood of Steel patrols have made their appearance in the wasteland. The Enclave are hostile and aggressive towards wastelanders who oppose their salvage missions; equipped with Tier 3 weaponry, they are a force to be reckoned with. The Brotherhood maintains their neutrality with the wasteland, so long no one dares to attack them first.
The following NPC's may appear in each respective encounter:
Brotherhood of Steel: Brotherhood Initiate, Brotherhood Knight, Brotherhood Paladin.
The Enclave: Enclave Recruit, Enclave Trooper, Enclave Veteran Trooper.

Each group of NPC's have the chance to drop Tier 3 weaponry and bottle caps.

- New Worldmap Events:
As the years have progressed, wastelanders have found new areas to explore, some of them have been reported to be dangerous to those inexperienced in survival.
Toxic Dump
Spoiler
A desolate irradiated place. This area is riddled by pits of toxic goop and Radioactive Geckos. Many who have ventured here have been decimated by the likes of these creatures, or have succumbed to the radiation. Can you find the way out of this hell hole?
Suspicious Tunnel
Outside:
Spoiler
Inside:
Spoiler
Ruins of a pre-war Highway Tunnel. Various raiders have taken a liking to making these areas as deathtraps for unsuspecting prospectors. Kill the raiders who have lured you into this area and show them who's boss. Reap the rewards of their labor and escape.

- New Town Event:
Cathedral Event
Something suspicious is happening in Cathedral. An Enclave Scout patrol has appeared. You can't help but feel something ominous is going to happen, it's best if you prepare for the worst...

- Navy Combat Armor and Desert Combat Armor unlocked:
After some time, there have been rumors of these armors appearing throughout the wasteland. Navy Armor has been sighted in the Necropolis Vault. Desert Combat Armor has been reported to be found in Ares, Sierra, and Mariposa. In addition to this, these armors had some slight upgrades made to them.

- Pancor Jackhammer unlocked:
The Pancor Jackhammer is now available to be found in the wasteland. Wastelanders reports that it appears from Sierra Control. Also, this weapon has been rebalanced to make its mark as a Tier 4 Shotgun.
- 6 Ammo per shot instead of 5
- Clip size increased from 15 to 30
- Range Increased from 18 to 20
- It cannot be bonused.

CHANGES:
- Free Rerolls:
- You get a reroll, he gets a reroll, EVERYONE, GETS FREE REROLLS! You have to be level 26 to get a free to reroll. Free rerolls have been enabled to celebrate the 5-year long session. The period to get a reroll will be at least 2 months long.

- Double XP:
- You get double experience UNTIL Level 26. After that, you get the normal XP-Ratio again. Good for new players and new builds to happen!

- Weapon Rebalances:
Overall the weapon system has been relatively balanced, but there is always room for improvement. There have been some minor nerfs/buffs to represent more diversity in the metagame of build planning. However, if such changes are not desirable, then they can always be reverted. These changes give underused weapons more versatility; let it be more range to match other weapons, more critical chance to give higher probabilities for wanted situational effects like crippling/weapon drops, or a damage increase to separate the use for similar type weapons; i.e(Frag/Plasma Grenades). The main purpose was to increase weapon viability and make them usable on different builds.
Few very contradictory weapons did gain a lot of different opinions from one side to another: Plasma Rifle, Avenger Minigun, Light Support Weapon. Balancing these was not an easy task, so we chose the safest step, which was not to change these weapons.

Have no issue with the rest of the update, but a little puzzled (dismayed?) about many of the weapon changes. Some are a long time coming and much needed (CAWs weight, Pulse Rifle range boost) while many of the rest seem either unnecessary or promoting a particular style of gameplay. For example, do we really need more silent death sneakers running around by providing a boost to cattle prod, which is something I never even heard anyone clamor for, nor do I see anyone wish for more throwing knife cripplers running around warehouse, cause gosh that's so fun. And as to why many cripple-type weapons received +5% critical chance? How was this number derived, as it seems it was picked arbitrarily as almost all the critical chance boosts are exactly +5 (and not +2 for this weapon, +4 for this one, etc). For so many weapons to be modified, the implication is that these weapons were broken to begin with which - - as this is the longest running Fallout server in due part to how relatively balanced it is - - makes me question if such weapon rebalancing is needed.
Team is Open for Rambos - 2-30 slots available /PM

Very big patch. Well done Dev Team.

As for the Item changes - it's about variety and different playstyles. Perhaps with enough testing and enthusiasm we might have melee users in actual teamfights or TC if they become useful.

Who knows. Give it a try and see how it goes, theres always skeptical at the start.

Throwing Knife:
- Critical chance added +5.
i dont think throwing knifes cripplers should have place in t3/t4 fights, throwing knifes is t1 weapon which doesnt cost almost anything

Bozar:
- The single-shot range increased from 50 to 55.
this might be a bit too much, especially combined with upgrading T4 for caps now
most of snipers now have 55 FoV (some have 58), that means Bozar sniper with +range upgrade can shoot them before they can even see him
52 or 53 hexes would be enough i believe, maybe with some other bonus instead but lets see first how it will look in PvP
Bozar also recieved Long Range weapon perk which is not mentioned in changelog
edit : nvm.. i see it already got changed to 54

overall nice update, good job

plasma rifle ghey
It's too early to comment on alot of this stuff, but I do partially agree with Richard.
Some of these balance changes are questionable.


Cattle Prod/Super Cattle Prod +5 chance - Diversity is good, but the only build that uses these are Silent Death sneaks, which we certainly don't need to see more of.
Imp. Flamer +1 range - Because this needs more range apparently?  Just need to edit the graphic and add a scope.
Jinxed exists - This trait needs to die.
Red Ryder BB Gun LE - No roll buff? No ability for Gun Runners to upgrade it? Enclave Patrol doesn't have it? BLEH
Bozar 54/55 range - Don't know who would use it still but this is cool. Made you think I was complaining about it huh xDddDD funny

Plasma Rifle - Unchanged.



For a long time I have believed that Plasma Rifle deserved no crit roll, and still even now!

I care not for the guys with their fancy charts and numbers!

I care not for plasma tard boomers!

I care not for certain NCR members who thinks it's balanced!

Few very contradictory weapons did gain a lot of different opinions from one side to another: Plasma Rifle (…) we chose the safest step, which was not to change these weapons.

You've heard their side of the story - and we've lived it - for 5 years! 5 YEARS!

However, if such changes are not desirable, then they can always be reverted.

If ever there was a chance to prove us wrong, now is that time!

Remove crit roll from Plasma Rifle and observe not Marina's tears, but instead how the beloved Plasma Rifle still makes its way onto the battlefield, and maybe some other weapons too!
Wasteland is still harsh.
Plasma Rifle is overpowered.
H&K CAWS is overpowered.
