Feature Updates

Locations

  • Increased the time it takes for hangar doors to close at landing zones.
  • Added and to ship shops in the PU.

Gameplay

  • Improved cycling of Selected targets in the view cone. Targets now iterate in order of angular offset to the look direction (closest to center first). Auto-selection is disabled while cycling, and turns on again once the player is no longer actively cycling.
  • Added the cycling of Locked targets in the view cone. Targets now iterate in order of angular offset to the look direction (closest to center first).
  • Added the cycling of all Locked targets in range, including those outside the player view cone. Can cycle hostiles, friendlies, attackers, and all targets. Each list will be sorted by distance (closest first). ‘Lock Nearest Target’ functionality is now implemented as ‘Cycle Lock – Reset to Closest’.
  • Order of targets to be cycled over will now be cached until the player is no longer actively cycling, or they reset the list. Which target will be cycled to is now more predictable as a result.
  • Added ability to Lock the target under the reticle. By default, this shares a keybind with cycling Locked targets in view, but acts contextually (if something is under the reticle, lock it, else cycle). Can be rebound to separate keys.
  • ‘Lock Selected Target’ is now unbound by default.
  • Pin Index controls no longer require a hold.
  • Removed first-in-first-out pinning controls and cycling of pins.
  • Removed unnecessary menu options.
  • Gimbal mode has moved from R to G
  • Countermeasures have moved from G and H to H and J
  • VTOL toggle has moved from J to K
  • Lights (and FPS torch) have moved from T to L
