      • Added a new “Broadcasting” tab to RA which lets you send administrative broadcasts to players(s). (Suggested by lysol#3636 in #game-suggestions)
      • Added new “External Lookup” and “External Panel” buttons to RA that allow external lookup to a specified URL.
      • The Facility Guard color has been changed to be more differentiable from spectator. (Suggested by lysol#3636 in #game-suggestions)
  • Backend
    • Optimized authentication to central servers (it’s way faster now).
    • Added audio source pooling system.
    • Added a new culling system to improve CPU and GPU performance.
  • Lockers and Items Spawning
    • Refactored code responsible for spawning items and random interactable structures (like Generators, Lockers, etc).
    • Guard keycard no longer spawns in Nuke room. It has been replaced by either one or two zone managers spawning in Nuke or SCP-049.
    • Added so many possible wall-mounted medkit locations that I can’t remember the specifics anymore. There are now 25 spawnpoints that can spawn medkit cabinets. Up to 13 cabinets can now spawn (with minimum of 3). At least 1, but up to 5 of them can contain adrenaline besides the medkit (they are indicated by blue cross instead of green).
    • Placed optional random spawnpoints for workstations (at: small room at 173 top floor, GR18 room, greenhouse, 096, 939, server room, T-intersection in HCZ, large EZ office)
    • COM-15 now always spawns in LCZ. Locations are more random, but still the same rooms.
    • Added a few random locations where scientist/janitor keycards can spawn (toilets, GR18, shelves inside 914 chamber, behind glass in greenhouse)
    • Standard Lockers can no longer spawn ammo nor adrenaline, but they can now spawn radio.
    • Small chambers in 3×3 Weapon Locker Type 21 require amory access lvl 1 (while large ones still require lvl 2). Large lockers spawn armor, grenades, radios and weapons. Small ones spawn ammo, grenades, and misc items (medkits, flashlights). Also made the small drawer at the bottom openable, which includes medical items and doesn’t require any keycard.
    • Alpha warhead silo armory door no longer requires a keycard.
  • Classes
    • Renamed Cadets/Lieutenants/Commanders into Privates/Sergeants/Captains. Escaped Scientists turn into Nine-Tailed Fox Specialists.
    • Chaos Insurgency has now four subclasses
      • Escaped D-Class turn into Chaos Insurgency Conscripts with AKs.
      • Chaos Insurgency Marauders – spawning with Logicers
      • Chaos Insurgency Repressors – spawning with Shotguns and Revolvers
      • Chaos Insurgency Riflemen – spawning with AKs
  • Inventory
    • General changes.
      • Completely rewritten the code responsible for inventory, items and pickups – based on interfaces and abstract classes (API change)
      • Security changes – cheaters can no longer see what other players possesed (only the server and the local client know their inventory content).
      • GUI received small minor visual and QoL changes, including: fade animations, drag&drop system used to organize items (or drop them on the floor).
      • Added “throw item” feature (“T” key by default). It’s an alternative way of dropping items, which adds velocity to the dropped item in the director the player is looking at. It also causes some items to get random angular velocity, which makes playing “heads or tails” with the coin possible.
      • Refactored SCP-914 so it uses the InteractableSystem. Recipes are now tied to the items themselves, not SCP-914 script (API change)
    • Keycards (and CI device)
      • Completely new animations.
      • Containment Engineer keycard got nerfed, it can no longer access the Intercom and the Nuke.
    • Radio
      • Completely new model and interface
      • General battery usage has been decreased, so the radio can stay active for longer on higher range modes.
      • Battery consumption is significantly increased when talking (to unrealistically high levels). This is an intentional feature that’s supposed to limit pointless conversations when using higher range modes.
      • Changed the default range to MR (Medium Range).
      • When using UR (Ultra Range) battery consumption is insane, but you can communicate with all active radios (in both ways) on an unlimited range. This is useful for requesting backup.
    • Usable Items
      • Painkillers, Adrenaline and Medkit have new models. Other usable items got reanimated.
      • Adrenaline now regenerates whole stamina, but Invigorated lasts only for 8 seconds.
      • Adrenaline now adds 40 AHP, with 1.2/s decay.
      • SCP-500 is faster to use, and regenerates additional 100 health over the course of 10 seconds.
      • API change: added tools that allow setting cooldowns on any usable item. Cooldown can be either local (one player is banned from using one ItemType) or global (all players are banned from using this particular instance of item)
    • Weapons
      • Reworked all mechanics, animations, models.
      • Added dynamic crosshair, which shows inaccuracy of currently held weapon.
      • Weapon Manager tablet has been completely removed from the game. Workstations have been reworked and they no longer require tablets (they can be activated by pressing E on the screen and automatically shut down after a while when nobody is nearby anymore).
    • Body Armor
      • Added to the game.
      • All classes now have exactly 100HP. Armor reduces damage received from bullets and explosions, but increases stamina usage and compromises movement speed
      • All classes have the same default limits for items and ammo. Body armor increases those limits.
    • MicroHID
      • New animations
      • Increased frequency of dealing damage by 60% (from 5 to 8 times per second), which should make the discharge seem more continuous.
      • Removed any randomness, it now deals precisely 720 damage per second (or 90 per hit, 4140 in total).
      • Fixed bug with players not getting damaged if they are inside the shooter.
      • To avoid accidental team killing on high ping, friendly players must now be directly in front of the shooter to get damaged.
      • Stamina usage is doubled when MicroHID is held.
  • Anti-cheat
    • Fixed SCP-106 anticheat (reduced false-positives).
    • Fixed SCP-096 vision.
  • Post Processing
    • Upgraded Post Processing to Unity’s Post Processing Stack v2
    • All class visuals have been redone and may look different.
    • SCP 079 Post Processing has new effects.
    • All Player Effects with Post Processing have been redone and may look different.
    • Player Effect “Decontamination” now shows rooms filling up with gas.
    • Player Effect “SCP207” now shows speed-lines that increase in intensity depending on the number of drinks consumed.
    • Player Effect “Flashed” is significantly less bright to be easier on the eyes.
    • Nuke detonation has a new effect when the player is inside the facility.
    • When you die, player effects will stay active until you change players or respawn.
    • SCP939 Visuals
      • Player Effect “Amnesia” (Applied by SCP-939 bite) now greatly decreases the player’s view distance and radius, making it harder to navigate the facility.
      • Player Effect “Visuals939” has been completely reworked. All geometry has white outlines. Important Text, important lit-objects, and transparent materials show up as grayscale.
      • Players who have the Visuals939 effect will experience non-scp player appearing/disappearing when they make noise, even if they are not SCP939.
    • Graphics Settings
      • Added Ambient Occlusion Graphics dropdown with options: Off, VAO(fast), and SSAO(Default).
      • Added Bloom Graphics Toggle with default value on.
      • Removed Color Correction Graphics Option.
      • Changed Anti-aliasing to a dropdown with options: Off, FXAA(Default), and MSAA.
      • Changed Motion Blur to be a Slider from 0 – 10 with default 0.
      • Changed Brightness Slider to show a value and go from -10 to 6 (Default 0).

Fixed:

  • UI
    • Fixed multiple font rendering issues that made the game borderline unplayable with non-latin based languages (this also decreases memory usage).
    • Fixed F1 menu text spacing from ability icons.
    • Fixed an issue with [previewyoutube] steam markdown tags in the newmainmenu.
    • Workstation background will be affected by Fog.
  • Gameplay
    • Fixed players sometimes not getting decontaminated properly.
    • Fixed 106 being able to enter LCZ after decontamination.
    • Fixed Alive D-Class/Scientist not counting as escaped for win conditions when round ends.
    • Fixed not being able to talk to each other when the round ends.
    • The fence on the surface now contacts the terrain.
    • Fixed the typo in CASSIE’s vocabulary subsystem -> subsystem
    • LCZ Room LOD’s have been removed and will no longer pop in when the player gets close.
  • Backend
    • Fixed an issue where the “-” character was skipped when directly connecting to a DNS address. This also added better hostname validation for direct connecting.
    • Fixed issue with ban command where it was fuzzy searching players: .
    • Fixed the issue with Laterjoin only spawning you as a Class D.
    • Fixed ban duration overflow.
    • Fixed new main menu not limiting FPS by default.

API Changes:

  • Plugin Support
    • FlickerableLightController now has a Property “LightIntensityMultiplier” to control a room’s light intensity server side.
    • FlickerableLightController now has a Property “WarheadLightColor” to control a room’s warhead light color server side.
    • FlickerableLightController now has a Property “WarheadLightOverride” to control a room’s warhead light override server side.
    • RelativeTimeToSeconds and BanUser now use long instead of int for duration.
  • RAUtils
    • Added a new utility helper for RA stuff. It contains the processing function for tab-completed names (including the regex functions).
  • CommandProcessor Changes
    • Literally every command contained here has been moved to Petris’ CommandSystem.
    • The one exception is REQUEST_DATA as that requires functions from CommandProcessor (and it should probably be reworked in the future).
  • CommandSystem Changes
    • Add IUsageInterface to support command usages. It’s a string array that gets added to the properties of the commands that interface it.
    • The IUsageInterface has 3 “special” values: (%player%, %role%, and %door%) that will tab-complete respectively in the RA GUI.
    • Add fuzzy search for looking up partial commands from the commandField.
    • Commands are synced when the client joins a server. This means any commands added to the RemoteAdminCommandHandler will be available for tab-completion in TBRA.
  • CCM Changes
    • Fixed the typo from “Fraction” to “Faction”.
Changes - 11/07/2021

CHANGES:

  • Firearms, ammo, MicroHID and Radios are now properly processed in SCP-914. Upgrading weapons will unload them and convert ammo to a new type of the same value.
    • Dead bodies killed by SCP-096 will get some extra momentum.
    • Nerfed Crossvec. Damage reduced from 21.7 to 20.9 (-0.8 HP). Penetration reduced from 60% to 55% (-5 ppt). People wearing combat armor can now survive two headshots from the standard barrel. It also means Crossvec has lower damage and penetration than FSP-9, but fire rate, magazine capacity and lower recoil still make Crossvec superior over FSP-9 when it comes to damage per second.
    • Buffed E11 by increasing recoil pattern regeneration speed. Firing in short bursts is now more effective.
    • Reduced damage of COM-18 from 20.9 to 20.1. This has virtually no impact on its overall effectiveness, we just don’t want pistols to deal more base damage than SMGs.

BUGFIXES:

  • Fixed issue where you couldn’t talk as a spectator.
  • Fixed mute spectator button not working in the waiting for players lobby.

  • Fixed glitched spawnpoints in Class-D cells.
  • Fixed a bug that caused dropped unloaded weapons to appear as they were loaded.
  • Fixed flashlight and ammo counter being incorrectly displayed on the thirdperson models.
  • Made the AK visible on the thirdperson models, visually it doesn’t differ from E11 at all, but it’s better than nothing.
  • Fixed shotgun muzzle flashes playing while reloading.
Changes - 12/07/2021

CHANGES:

  • Added SCP-500 viewmodel
  • Partially implemented flashlight. It doesn’t have the toggle feature yet.
  • Scp 079 post processing adjusted to be less pale, less bright.

  • Fixed a NullReferenceException in InteractionCoordinator.cs
  • Decontamination should no longer persist through games.
  • Culling should no longer have issues. (for example, in Bathrooms).

  • Temporary material for AK doesn’t emit light anymore.
  • Dropped E11 now properly displays the mounted magazine option, instead of always being the drum.
  • Fixed animations getting out of sync on low FPS for the Revolver.

  • Fixed desync between hand and viewmodel animations.
Changes - 15/07/2021

CHANGES:

  • Added loot in HCZ armory. It now spawns a flashlight, radio, 60x 9x19mm ammo and 120x 5.56×45 ammo.
  • Improved Surface Zone lighting.
  • Adjusted volume of different firearms (it was mostly about making FSP-9 a bit quieter). Removed audio compressor, as people didn’t like it.
  • Improved a few details in animations for Logicer (mostly the loaded bullet indicator, introduced a few variants of the shot animation).

BUGFIXES:

  • Fixed crosshair not showing running inaccuracy.
  • Fixed SCP-207 damage.
  • Maybe fixed MicroHID audio? Please work this time.
  • Fixed sleeves clipping into the camera in MicroHID and Logicer animations.
Changes - 20/07/2021

CHANGES:

  • Re-added disarming/handcuffing.
    • Firearms can be now used to hold E on enemies to detain them.
    • Players stay disarmed even after the firearm is dropped.
    • More than one person can be detained (no cap right now, we’ll probably set it to 3 later).
    • Detained players know who they were detained by (displayed on screen).
  • Added sounds for MTF-E11-SR. Please note few of them are still WIP (suppressor and charging handle).
  • Added more 9x19mm ammo spawning in the HCZ armory.
  • Added ragdoll physics to SCP-939
  • Volumetric lighting on the Surface Zone can be now disabled in graphics settings.

Changes - 21/07/2021

CHANGES:

  • Added MTF-E11-SR sights!
  • Rebalanced SCP-096
    • Hume Shield Cap: 1000
    • Base HP: 2000
    • Hume Shield Regeneration Rate: 40/s
    • Hume Shield Regeneration Delay: 25s
  • Additional rage time is only granted by acquiring targets in the calm and enraging states. New targets acquired after fully enraged do not give bonus time.
  • 096 cannot regenerate, nor increase the max amount of Hume Shield by acquiring targets. The max value will remain at 1,000, and can only regenerate via passive regeneration.

Charge:

  • Base cooldown reduced to 5 seconds
  • If a kill is landed using charge, a 3.5s cooldown reduction will be applied for the next use of Charge. Additionally, the base cooldown will increase by 1 second. When rage stops, the base cooldown resets to 5 seconds. 0 Charge kills = 5 second base CD 1 Charge kill = 6 second base CD 2 Charge kills = 7 second base CD …and so on, and so forth.
  • If one use of Charge kills multiple people, only one stack of the cooldown penalty is applied.
  • If 096 makes contact with a non-target, that human will only receive 40 damage.
  • 096 will see the glowing outlines of targets much earlier (visible while Enraged → visible immediately after receiving a target).
  • Additionally, when 096 receives his first target, play (for 096) the same drum sound that humans hear when becoming a target.
  • 096’s Client-Side hit reg has been reworked, making it easier to kill targets.
    • SCP 079’s minimap will show red pulsing squares to indicate that a teammate is inside a room. The server will update the player’s position every 1.3 seconds. The pulse will happen every time the server updates or the minimap is opened. This is a level 1 passive ability. It will show the positions of: 939, 173, 096, 106, and 049.

BUGFIXES:

  • Fixed a bunch of reported issues with disarming.
  • Fixed MicroHID bug which caused the needle to not update until you start firing.

  • Armor now has 914 recepies (it goes linearly light–>combat–>heavy on fine and backwards on coarse)
  • Added more human-readable and translateable names, stats, and descriptions for each attachment.
  • Inaccuracy parameter is now formatted as accuracy which is more intuitive to analyze. For example, former “-50% inaccuracy” will be now presented as “+100% accuracy”.
  • Changed weapon descriptions in the inventory GUI. It no longer shows weight and length. It now shows penetration, running inaccuracy and movement penalties. Accuracy now has a unit — it’s displayed in degrees which represent maximum bullet dispersion angle. The lower angle, the more accurate the gun is.

  • Updated the screen shake effect, so it uses the new post-processing, giving us more control over its behavior.
  • SCP-106 death effect is now also used when recontaining.

  • Fixed server crashing when too many blood decals spawn in one place.
  • Fixed COM-15 suppressor using the regular gunshot sound.
Changes - 02/08/2021

CHANGES:

  • Introduced the AK model. It’s still missing sounds and a few details, but mechanics, attachments and animations are fully implemented. It has a base damage of 26.2, cyclic rate of 510, and 85% penetration.
  • Workstations and spectator editors now support presets.
  • Updated the photo of SCP-173 used on the containment chamber label.
  • Added a collider on top of the speaker at Gate B.

    • Collapsed Tunnel
    • Balcony at Gate B
    • Nuke chair and control panel.
    • The two tanks in the HCZ armory.
    • Balcony at 173’s containment chamber.
  • SCP-106’s cage doesn’t move anymore, it was causing too many synchronization issues, including random fall damage deaths.
  • Fixed Gate A dome window being too transparent.
  • Fixed players getting soft-locked when a network exception occurs.
Changes - 04/08/2021

  • Added SCP-207 sounds.
  • Added Holographic Sight to the shotgun. Please note it may have corrupted your saved presets for the shotgun.
  • Improved AK icon.
  • Made COM-18 use COM-15’s sounds. It is very likely they’ll stay this way, as the audio team is presently busy with AK and 173 sounds and there may be not enough time to create dedicated COM-18 sounds.

  • Added more space between the ammo text and attachment icons in the inventory description GUI.
  • Improved AK’s transition between loading and chambering animations.

BUGFIXES:

  • Fixed missing parameters for AK foregrips and JHP drums.
  • Fixed Crossvec’s inspect animation when foregrip is installed.
  • Fixed Crossvec’s charging handle animation occasionally glitching when the user is consistently unloading and loading the gun.
  • Fixed COM-15’s standard barrel name. It’s no longer labelled as “Standard Stock”.
  • Fixed hand clipping into the rail in AK’s inspect animation.
  • Fixed a bunch of minor issues related to workstations and presets. These are mostly visual glitches that nobody cared about. But I did.

    • Blinks cooldown is determined entirely by the amount of observers when the cooldown begins, 173 is no longer capable of losing or gaining a second during a cooldown, 173 blink will always countdown to completion.
    • Added a post-processing effect for 173, used when Breakneck Speeds is active.
    • Tantrum placed next to tesla gates are now destroyed whenever the tesla gets activated.
    • Updated the hit radius from being a 2m kill sphere to a cylindrical kill area (Diameter is 2m and its 5m tall with it being centered on 173’s middle)

  • Fixed issue with entrance doors pushing you in walls.
Changes - 17/08/2021

CHANGES:

  • Added SCP-079 recontainment procedure:
    • Generators no longer affect regeneration of aux power.
    • SCP-079’s containment chamber can’t be accessed until all generators are activated.
    • Number of generators decreased to 3. Once all activated, SCP-079 gates will lock in the opened position.
    • SCP-079 chamber contains a kill swtich, which needs to be triggered for the recontainment sequence to finish.
    • Once SCP-079 dies due to the overcharge, containment gates will be unlocked, meaning they can be opened/closed using any keycard with containment lvl 2.
    • Containment chamber has tons of loot, so it makes sense to activate the generators even if 079 hasn’t spawned.
  • The layouts of Entrance Zone have been completely revamped. This should make them more compact, despite having similar area. The new layouts use previously disabld three-way intersection.
  • Added ADS (aiming down the sights) animations for weapons. This includes “ADS enter”, “ADS exit” and “ADS idle loop” animations.
  • Grenades
    • Updated characters to use the new models for grenades and SCP-018.
    • HEGs now use a proper countdown sound. It’s similar to the old frag grenade sound, but it starts later and is a bit quiet unless you’re very close.

    • Slightly buffed HEGs. They deal more damage, especially to SCPs.
  • SCP-939 can now break glass and has a hume shield.

BUGFIXES:

  • Fixed an exploit with 106’s cage.
Changes - 20/08/2021

CHANGES:

  • Added upgrade recipes for grenades.
  • Added new dropmodel for 7.62×39, all other ammo types will receive similar dropmodels later, during the public beta.

  • SCP-173:
    • Added sound/animation for when a tantrum pool is too close to a activated Tesla Gate.
    • Added animation for when a tantrum pool despawns.
    • Added new array of audio effects when staring at 173.
    • New sounds when 173 gets shot by firearms.
    • SCP-173’s hume shield getting broken now has a audio effect
  • Slightly changed loot in SCP-079, there’s also a workstation.
  • Increased time to activate generators – it’s now 2 minutes and 5 seconds.
  • SCP-018 will now respect “friendly fire” during the first 10 seconds.
  • Added more grenade spawns in rifle rack and 3×3 locker.
  • Logicer: first shot delay changed from 0.08s to 0.05s
  • We’ve decided to do something about Shotgun being too random and inconsistent:
    • Base damage of each pellet increased from 7.1 to 12.3. Penetration stays at 70%
    • Amount of pellets remains 12, however, introduced a hard cap on how many pellets can deal damage to one player. The current limit is 8, meaning the maximum damage shotgun can inflict in a single shot to a player is 98.4 (however the remaining 4 pellets can still damage other players, giving a total max damage of 147.6).
    • While it may sound unrealistic and weird, to improve consistency, hitbox multipliers have been disabled for shotguns. This means pellets always deal the same damage, no matter if they hit the head, limbs, or body. Vest armor efficacy is applied for penetration calculations.

BUGFIXES:

  • Fixed issue with config option for upgrading held items in SCP-914.
  • Fixed anticheat refusing to open checkpoints despite being in range.
  • Lever in SCP-079 generators is now bigger.
  • Fixed warhead opening SCP-079 doors prematurely.
  • C.A.S.S.I.E. will now announce who recontained 079.

  • Fixed issues with keybinding on some computers.
  • SCP079 room hotkeys (top right) are black colored for better visibility.
  • SCP079 post processing is brighter and has a blue tint.
  • Audio shouldn’t lag when spinning camera left/right.
  • Spectated Class-D player models should no longer disappear.
  • Head of player models tilt when looking up and down again.
  • Removed the redundant “Fast Intro Fade” button in the menus.
  • Fixed 2 more disconnect on join issues.
  • Fixed 173 being able to teleport out of the map above chaos spawn.
  • SCP-173’s blink killings should be more consistent now.
  • SCPs can no longer break glass in 079’s

  • Replaced all ammo dropmodel placeholders except for the 12/70 buckshot (still work-in-progress, like the AK sounds).
  • Movement refresh rate is now synchronized with the framerate. This should provide a smoother experience.
  • Reduced audio of certain 173 effects.
  • Default jumpscare sound effect no longer plays on 173.
  • Added 1.5 second anti-missclick timer to “Breakneck Speeds”, so it can’t be accidentally cancelled immediately after activation.

  • Fixed SCP-079 not getting EXP when closing hallway doors.
  • Fixed body armor glitching into other items upon death.
