Revision 16, Erectin' a Sentry!

OF Team | July 30, 2023

Tags: Updates


Added automatic crash reporting!

  • On first boot, the game will ask you if you agree to sending anonymous reports on crash
  • The only identifiable info sent is your SteamID, more info on

    For some time now we've been concerned about the stability of the game, however internal tests can only help so much, so gathering crash scenarios from the public will be a massive help

Added of_dom_scorelimit_multiplier ConVar

  • Multiplies points need to win in (mercenary) Domination

Added dynamic spawner time settings:

  • of_spawners_dynamic_max_mult - The value weapon spawner respawn times get multiplied by at max player count
  • of_spawners_dynamic_player_start_count - The player count at which
    dynamic weapon spawner times start
  • of_spawners_dynamic_player_max_count - The player count at which
    dynamic weapon spawner times reach their max multiplier

We saw that servers with a larger player cap often ran weaponstay to combat the issue of not enough weapons for that larger player count, however, that deminished the player experience at low to medium player counts, these convars are meant to solve this issue
