Nordinvasion Update 1.11.5

This update is focused mostly on improving the new support system. More build points are available by default and the number scales on more populated servers. The process of building barricades has also been streamlined to make it faster and easier to position the barricades before you build them. Medics have also been updated with the ability to force the reload of healing charges and now receive a 10% self-heal. Beyond support changes, we also have some rebalancing of enemies, item changes, scene updates, and the ability to resurrect players who have lost connection to the server and rejoined within the same run.

Engineering changes:

  • Players who spawn a barrel gain access to the build menu.
  • After choosing a barricade from the build menu, the player enters a building mode with a preview of the barricade.
    • Hold the standard interaction key to build when you have it positioned the way you want it.
    • Press escape to cancel the build.
  • The number of build points available has been increased.
    • The base number of build points per wave has been increased from 6 to 8.
    • For every player on the server past the first eight, another build point is earned each wave.
  • All platforms no longer cost build points and have had their HP reduced by 50%.

Medic changes:

  • The cooldown between heals has been reduced from 2.5 seconds to 2.
  • The player who heals now receives 10% reflective healing.
  • A player who disconnects from a server and rejoins it (DC/crash) will be eligible for resurrection.
  • Holding the medic ability button for 1.5 seconds will set the quantity to 0 and trigger the 15 second reload timer.

General changes:

  • The welcome message has been updated.
  • A private message is now displayed upon spawning which explains how to access the build menu/medic ability. This should make it easier for new players.
  • The scoreboard has an E or M prefixed to each player with an Engineer or Medic class.

Item changes:

Scene changes:

  • Ancient Bastion: filled some gaps under the Swadian defences

    • Ulfhednar's throwing axes are a little more dangerous.
    • Gunnar's bow is a little more dangerous.
