v102 AlphaEdit

  • Jet shoes are now additive instead of reaching speed. Jet shoes can be used while rolling in the air. While using jet shoes while rolling, you will slow down your roll a lot making you vulnerable, but it also gives you very interesting control mechanics.
  • Throwing has been reworked. Charge time is now variable depending on how long you press which makes it snappier, throwing will try to push the throw towards your actor trajectory, giving more power over throw direction, as well as throwing in itself is more physical making up/down/backwards and strange middle of roll throws possible.
  • Reworked scope to be a bit more useful, as well as giving a little better bullet time bonus.
  • auto aim now doesn’t snap back and forth frantically. If you have auto aimed against a target, and it goes behind a wall, you will keep aiming towards the last visible position.
  • Rolling now slows down reloading by a significant amount.
  • Simply moving against a conveyor belt will now move you, even if you are not grabbing it like a wall grab.
  • Added more upgrades to slugger revolver, slugger cobra, slugger pipe and slugger breacher.
  • Slugger revolver now starts as it should with no extended barrel, so there are now 2 levels. Tweaked it so that starting point is lower than normal, and ending point with max is higher than before.
  • Tweaked all upgrade prices so that more expensive guns have more expensive upgrades. This is because I want it to be less obvious to get them, so that alternative spending possibilities are considered, and also follow better with the economy that you have when being able to afford expensive guns.
  • Increased price of matter army issue from 250 to 275.
  • Switched price of spike bow and price for spike bow repeater.
  • Sliding backwards up walls is now possible.
  • Made air rolling backwards as easy as rolling backwards.
  • Changed weapons on smooth jazz.
  • The Plus can now be moved with explosions and applied force.
  • Bomb is now called Thermal Bomb and has had its effect reworked. It is now not instant kill, instead it has damage over time. This makes is less good against tough foes like hamsters and predators. It will also not instantly kill you with shield but will wear your shield down faster than normally. Cost is 50 Volts.
  • Stick Grenade and Grenade now cost 15 instead of 16.
  • Improved the handling of the boomerang, also made it harder to hit with bullets.
  • Tweaked waves in survival house, as well as added 3 new tiers.
