New on Public Test: 4/24 Edition - Get Some Harasser Buggy


http://forums.station.sony.com/ps2/i...-buggy.119794/

Don't really know if this newsworthy. If not sorry about that. However some new things on the PTS. Including a couple of interesting tidbits.

However, as of this post, logging in is a wee bit tricky as it won't let you. Chars are seemingly wiped. See for yourself.
  • The Harasser buggy is now available to all factions on test server
  • A three person vehicle with a driver, a gunner, and a (MAX capable) rumble seat
  • The map and minimap should now respect your empire color selections
  • VR zone consumables no longer eat your resources when resupply them
  • Explosives that are set to auto resupply will now attempt to purchase up to the max equip count for an item based on your available resources
  • Placed deployables should no longer disappear (to your client) when a you travel 300 meters away from them
  • Added a toggle for the empire-colored explosion animations on the map
  • Single Use Camos are being hidden in the marketplace. Very few people use/purchase them and with the recent loadout changes that show unpurchased items they are bloating the UI.
  • Refactored the Map UI so it’s performance should be significantly improved with the new hex system
  • The new MAX abilities didn't make this build but they are super close to hitting test, so keep an eye out over the next few days – it shouldn't be too long.

Everything you want to know about the Harasser on the PTR (Certs/Screenshots)


***KEEP IN MIND THIS IS STILL TEST SERVER AND SUBJECT TO CHANGE***

Managed to snag some screenshots and info from the Test Server for you all.
(To see the image in a larger resolution, right click and select "Open in new tab")

Definition:
The Harasser buggy is now available to all factions on test server
A three person vehicle with a driver, a gunner, and a (MAX capable) rumble seat
Do note: Costs 200 Mechanical Resources to pull.
Tops out at about 90KPH (with no upgrades)


Weapons/Performance Slots:
It looks like the Harasser will have all the MBT secondary weapons (Saron/PPA, Vulcan/Marauder, Enforcer/Enforcer Modified) in addition to other secondary weapons (Walker, Cobalt, Basilisk, Halberd) as well as Sunderer/Gal/Flash weapons (Bulldog, Fury).
Performance slots seem to be identical to the Flash's (Scrapper/Surger/Racer)


Utility Slots:
This is where it gets fun:

In addition to the regular choices, ie Fire Suppression/radar etc. It also gets Gate Shield Diffuser as well as Turbo. Could be fun for crashing into shielded bases without the use of a Sunderers.

Defense slots:

Access to all typical defensive slots, nothing we haven't seen before on any other vehicle.

And now for your viewing pleasure, Screenshots of Empire Harassers with MBT secondaries!
VS w/ Saron

NC w/ Enforcer Modified

TR w/ Vulcan


Also, with active Diffuser:


And inside the drivers seat:

Higby was just restarting the server but quick points:
  • Harrasser is seriously good fun!
  • New characters go through a mini tutorial (basic move here, shoot that, interact with terminal types etc.)
  • Hossin warp button on the terminal screen.
  • Characters I think are intact as mine re-appeared.
  • New helmets in the store and available for preview - priced at 1000SC
  • Hex map screen has been updated and "fleshed out" and appears less linear. Looks to have been minor adjustments here and there as well with regards links.

Thats all I got to look at though. Noticed some interesting bugs like the bridge from Ti-Alloys to the Crown an entire section of it was sunk in the ground and the dirt roads a few had geometry hiccups where the ground was sunk down to form a physical barrier (assume this isn't a design integration haha)

Edit: Unfortunately the NC employed the annoying announcer again - she hasn't been jettisoned as a test subject into deep space to see if the worm hole remains active.... yet.

Just moved the threads into one and did a spot of editing.

Cheers Chip. The servers are down currently, partly to rectify login issues and partly to remove the tutorial area, since it was pushed out too early apparently.

About time we see some sort of tutorial. That was needed at launch.

Now they're taking it out. At least for the time being.

Well at least we know they are working on it. That is one more step towards having a complete game!

The tutorial is a work in progress. What you saw is an very early version and wasn't ready for play testing. It has a lot more being added to it and you'll see a much more fleshed out version soon enough!

This is probably a very small matter, but I feel like I should be able to see the hood of the harasser when sitting in 1st person. It just looks... weird the way it does now.

Also, the VS MAX has dual lancers. LOL

Did Higby troll you again like back when he showed us early lattice screenies?

I don't doubt it. Just glad we got to see a sneak-peek before the door closed .
