After the Fall has just surpassed in a day vs Arizona Sunshine did in a month. And with that milestone, developer Vertigo Games wants to make sure everything is as perfect as can be. They heard what the fans like you pointed out and have been working as fast as possible to get everything updated to make sure everyone’s holidays are the most festive of them all. So with that, let’s check out the major and general parts for all the platforms of the newest update:

MAJOR UPDATES


Fixes

  • Fixed: guns losing configurations when starting a level while in the crafting area
  • Fixed: Issue where items from the selection wheel would be swapped (instead of stacked) on the hand when holding a gun, while grabbing an item (booster/pipe bomb etc).
  • Fix where player can’t ‘Apply’ already unlocked Skins if they don’t have enough Harvest (while this is no longer a requirement at this state).
  • Fixed: Snap-to-grip advanced reloading.
  • Fixed: Difficulty check for skin unlocks
  • Fixed skin unlock requirement values.
  • Fixed: Moved leaving party on loading hub from ClientSceneSwitcherGameSystem to PartyGameSystem to prevent cases where leaving party is forgotten.
  • Fixed: Incorrect spawn location offset and incorrect anti-cheat reset location.
  • Fixed: Missile Power Device unlocks in the vending machine after completing Chinatown.
  • Removed unsupported laser pointer weapon part dropping from the loot tables

Changes

  • Reworked the way Harvest is saved at The Line/Armory. Instead of blindly saving it will calculate the harvest value of the player’s loadout. So it will refund accidently lost weapons or stuck parts in the crafting area.
    Note: Should you still lose your gun configuration, you will be refunded the harvest spent on these parts.
  • Full parties in matchmaking public parties will now start automatically after 20 seconds
  • Increased inactive kick time from 10m to 30m in the hub
  • Set ‘Allow Hand Item Swap’ setting to ‘Disabled’ by default
  • Updated weapon skin unlock values (more unlockable skins are added and unlock requirements are changed)
  • Added safety teleport back when head is stuck in anti-cheat for more than 5 seconds

GENERAL UPDATES


GAMEPLAY 
(affects all platforms)


Fixes

  • Fixed: Players could kick other players while in game levels.
  • Fixed: Players would inadvertently start loading a level because they receive a message from a party leader, of a party they are no longer a member of.
  • Fixed: Players would become visible in invisibility volumes in the hub, when they enter and exit a volume in the same frame.
  • Fixed: Some players would sometimes load the hub instead of the next voted-upon level.
  • Fixed: Ammo as a reward for completing missions.
  • Fixed: Loading crafting specific mesh data when not in a crafting scene.
  • Fixed issue where player could unlock achievement for healing self/other player when remote player uses a booster

Changes

  • Added markers to the crafting tutorial
  • Localization updates to interface, items, missions, tutorial and voice lines.
  • Player Rotation is now allowed in endscreen
  • Moved Harry’s conversation events from ‘on crafting area left’ to ‘on crafting tutorial complete’ because players thought it would interrupt with Luna’s lines

  • Added support for max ammo when in the crafting zone.
  • Changed it so taking ammo out of your belt in the armory doesn’t cost any resources
