Recoil Bug Explanation

29. Dec. 2023

  • Described a recoil bug where rapid firing prevents the recoil reset animation from correctly resetting between shots.
  • The upcoming fix addresses recoil inconsistencies, particularly with the Karna Rifle, including its recoil animation and damage output.
  • Clipping issues are also noted, and the team is handling them on a case-by-case basis.
  • Some weapons, like the LH86 and C54, intentionally have misalignment during firing but compensate with increased firepower.
  • Mentioned that "Star Citizen" models its firing mechanism more like a simulation game, firing literally from the barrel, as opposed to the style of arcade games.
  • The development tool allows for precise control over recoil pattern noise, with differing levels of consistency depending on the weapon manufacturer.

21. Dec. 2023

  • Released an updated version of the Xi'an Language for Diplomats.
  • The update adds over 1700 new terms, achieving vocabulary parity with Banu.
