A wild Beta 5 Update suddenly appears!
« on: March 31, 2018, 09:50:52 PM »

There's a new automatic mode with... time-sensitive activation ;)

We know that sometimes all you really want to do is blow stuff up, so all items on the ground have been replaced by launchers.



All those flight players who want to just sneak around and hack stuff? Psh, who needs subtlety when you can hit everything with 5 missiles at once? Just make sure you have a way to replenish your matter :P

Runs in this mode do not upload scores regardless of settings, and this mode only activates if past the tutorial quick start (i.e. have played 3-4 runs before already) and have no active Challenge Modes.

Note this new feature will not affect runs in progress. (Also: To start a run and force the game back to regular behavior, use the command line parameter "-noAFD".)

I'd like to report a bug, I see an item that is not a launcher. :) :) :)

Very happy to see this is a real thing though and not just a prank announcement.

Haha psh, there are definitely still ways for non-launcher items to spawn, but 99.9% will be launchers. I wasn't planning to do anything for 4/1 this year since Beta 6 is taking a while, but I already missed last year and didn't want to miss yet another, so when nuzcraft PM'ed me this morning asking about whether I'd be doing anything, I said no but quickly changed my mind after recalling the idea to change all items to launchers.

So this morning I implemented and tested this whole mode in just an hour. Glad I did, have fun :D
