Altis Life UK Server Development - Changelog

Recommended Posts

8PM Update:

  • Dead bodies are now ejected from vehicles on death - Easier for NHS to revive people who die in vehicles.
  • New Admin Systems - To go along with the new staff system, a whole rewrite of the old heavily modified Team Atomic admin menu as well as the default Tonic admin menu has taken place, and the result gives admins more flexibility in terms of their abilities to deal with rule breakers. Some notable features include:
    • Forced Admin Gear - All staff below staff lead will be forced into admin gear, this is to allow for elimination of any claims of admins abusing tools during gunfights.
    • Extensive Logging - Extensive server side logging of admin actions in order to hold all admins accountable for their actions. These logs include useful information to the management team, including tools being activated/deactivated, actions being taken on players as well as the admin menu itself being opened/closed.
    • Vehicle Interactions - Some things that many admin menus don't do well are vehicles, this new admin menu treats vehicles as first class citizens, allowing for the same level of interaction as with players. Admins are able to completely stop a vehicle in its tracks for VDM scenarios, or completely remove a vehicle from the world if desired. 
    • Player Interactions
      • Remove Weapons - Admins can remove a players weapons without removing the remainder of their gear - this can be used to stop RDM scenarios or to remove a person from a combat scenario.
      • Remove Gear - Admins can completely wipe a players ArmA inventory, including clothes and other gear.
      • Freeze Player - Comes with two modes; freeze player completely (no input) or freeze player movement only.
      • Revive - Reviving a single unit, this allows for people to be brought back up after an RDM situation.

12AM Hotfixes

  • ESP markers were not showing due to a camera configuration issue - this has been resolved.
  • Fixed "Remove Weapons" feature.

    Patch didn't require a restart, rolled out at 2:54PM

    • A missing DB index meant that the Groups menu would load at a slow speed for anyone above level 2 (who would get a list of offline members too - this query was the cause of the delay). This has been rectified and the offline group members now load at a satisfactory speed.

    Last night we added an extra 10 civ slots to our mission alongside the update, for a trial period we are now going to up the server slot count to 140 in order to test the effects on client/server stability and performance.

    If the test causes any adverse effects, we will consider aborting the test at 8PM, yet we ask people to be patient while we try to fit more people onto our server space we already own, in order to save costs on a third server.

    If you have any adverse performance effects that are constant, and not due to external influence (i.e 50 Chrome windows), then please do report that here.
