As a Linux user (Ubuntu 16.04 LTS) I must say I am very happy that the engine runs pretty well using PlayOnLinux with Wine 1.9.20.

I just had great fun driving a Tatra truck down from the Mont Blanc  :D

Hi, did you use a joysticks? on my POL Outerra can`t find any controllers. :(

Just curious, can we expect to have an update by the end of the year? I'm actually missing the thrill of reading changelogs...

Hoping so, though end of the year is always busy.
The main feature is supposed to be the multiplayer, but it required a lot of modifications to many parts of the engine, and it's taking us quite a lot of time.

Great news!
I wanted to ask whether it's going to be similar to the multiplayer plugin from a while ago or are you implementing other means of interaction between players, but... I'd rather have this update spoiler free :)

Yay!
I noticed serious performance improvements, previously I had awful stuttering when turning camera with ambient occlusion on. Now I'm getting nothing less than 60 fps with everything maxed out and vertical sync on. Feels so good...
Also, checkboxes in options menu now only show 'on' regardless of indicator itself.

Nah, stuttering caused by AO is actually still there in dense forest areas.

*sigh* Still no way for objects to share information with each other, or detect projectile impacts, or anything that improves the functionality and brings it closer to being a game.  =|

AI and pathfinding complete. Unless this is some variation of "you can't say food tastes bad unless you're a chef" argument?

Um, that probably wouldn't even be documented here.
There was one internal change that allows you to share info, as long as you can obtain a reference to the other object.
So if you are launching your own objects (rockets?) or you use object_test() to find it, you should now receive an object reference that is also the "this" of the remote object, and you should be able to set its properties directly.

It looks nice, but I have 5 minutes later FPS drops sharply to an average of 25 to 10, only helps reboot. In the previous version was smooth FPS all the time

Previously FPS did not measure accurately, but now I would like to compare, whether it is possible for the Previous Version disable the update?

That's a feature of the new editor since day one :)



It's selected by default. Keep in mind it uses the pivot point of the model, so you might need to adjust it (like I did in the video) and the ground alignment can be a little off if you start moving a large number of buildings on a large surface. Combined with auto-leveling under individual objects, it's easy to make a little city fast.

There's -noupdate command line argument you could use.
