When will the 35km spangle update be added to conq, its a good change but with how little updates the conq server gets i feel like we'll be waiting months till we see it implemented.

Hasn't been forgotten, however its been very low on the priority list. I personally spent most of the month fixing various long standing bugs, and adding the majority of the bigger things, with the rest of our team focusing on real life. Makes things take a bit of time.

I plan to see how its received on S1, and if its still wanted after a week or two, we will probably implement it into Conq.

Pretty sure a conquest update is also close to being finished up, so we should be able to fit it in there if the response is good.

These QOL changes are fantastic. Unfortunate that water revives won't be as hectic though haha

Not how roundtables work. When something gets approved, Trello cards are created for the ideas. Those are then sorted into priority categories the Sr/Lead devs think should be set in. They focus more on higher priority things/what they are interested in. The devs also get assigned cards. It doesn't get done based on when the idea was approved.

Is it possible to make it so doing it in reverse spangles too? Lots of ppl "front tire dropping"

like bugged scuffed or you just don't like the implementation of them?

Seems like they could be raised in price to 30k, reusable like tow hooks, made available t3+ and keep the time for balancing. 20 zipties vs 1 handcuff isn’t a good trade.

 

big update for the sending bones, that actually is huge

While transporting a vehicle fuel consumption is increased by 50%

If u load a fuel truck in the back you are preventing anything else from being loaded in it which is the issue with the blackfishes currently. They are too good of a getaway vehicle for other vehicles like gold trucks. If you load a fuel truck in it, then u won‘t be able to load a gold truck in it. No one really cares about just a blackfish flying on its own doing nothing.
