MAJOR ART UPDATE! Game Ver. 0.0.9.5
Hello everybody, we are very excited, even STOKED to announce we have just released a MAJOR ART UPDATE for the AlterVerse Game Client!
A NEW BRIDGE, NEW TRAINING CENTER, NEW TREASURY HOLD ROOM AND GAUNTLET. NEW TELEPORT ROOM LOCATION AND TONS OF NEW OPTIONS FOR THE IN-GAME CUSTOMIZER ARE JUST A LITTLE BIT OF THE NEW CHANGES!

Along with all the above mentioned highlights included in this Major Art Update we have recreated all of the hallway models and several of the large room models so that you can now choose between 10 ceiling textures, 10 wall textures, 10 floor textures and 9 light colors. We have them in matching sets but you can also mix them up as desired. You might think Wall Option 1 looks better with Floor Option 5 for example. There are virtually thousands of different combinations now to personalize your Disrupter ship. We can’t possibly show them all here, you’ll have to launch your ship and play with the Customizer yourself to get a true feeling for the endless possibilities!
We also updated the Crew Room model and color options. Plus we adjusted some oversized collision meshes on several models and added a few new types of barrels and crates. Basically this is a complete overhaul of the Disrupter ship!
WE HAVE A NEW BRIDGE!
The Disrupter ship’s Bridge is completly remodeled. A more open layout with a few chairs and holographic PC screens.
We even have a new holographic map of the whole ship right on the Bridge now! No more getting lost. LOL
WE HAVE A NEW TRAINING CENTER!
Sharpen up your aim! Practice your shooting and dodging skills in the Brand New Training Center!
Currently there are several targets and movable boxes for now. We can even use this room for practice battles.
The Training Center is a work in progress project and just waiting for you all to check it out and share with us your ideas.
We’ve replaced the Draftball Court with the new Training Center and will release the Draftball game in a future update.
THE TELEPORT CENTER HAS MOVED!
We have moved the Teleport Center to a more strategic location. This way you are not starting on the third floor when you arrive to Raid a ship!
Your adversaries will no longer have the advantage of knowing you’re coming from the third floor. There’s also new holographic maps in the Teleport Center to help you on your way.
Mama Bahamma’s Lounge is now in the old TP center location sporting a great view of the XR75 Ring Course! Make sure to check it out! You just may find a snack or two.
A REDESIGNED TREASURY HOLD AND GAUNTLET!
The Ship’s Treasury Hold room has a fresh new look, even the Droid Bots got a buffing and an upgrade to their weapons to better protect the treasury!
The Gauntlet has been renamed more appropriately. It’s now the Utility Shaft and it is dark and spooky just like you’d think a utility shaft would be! Use at your own risk! You never know what may be lurking in the dark.
NEW CONTROL ROOM
The control room has a new look too! To see it though, you’ll have to aquire the “tool” to get through the doors! Here’s a little preview pic of what’s behind the doors!
To view a complete list of all the fixes and changes in this update visit our official changelog here.
In the next update we’ll have some HUGE performance improvements. The devs are currently working on improvements and upgrades for the game engine code. Two of the many improvements that they are working on are adding multi-threading support which will increase the amount of actions the engine can do simultaneously and an upgrade from 32 bit to 64 bit memory addressing.
These two performance upgrades are much bigger and more important than they may sound.
The new memory addressing alone is huge! Just to give you an idea of how big a difference it is, a 64 bit system is able to access over FOUR BILLION times the physical memory of a 32-bit system! Sure sounds impressive, eh?
It is also a ton of work and takes a lot of time, but our Devs are up to it. It is well worth all it takes, because these upgrades will definitely give players a much better overall gameplay experience.
And that is the whole idea! Am I right?
So, log in the AlterVerse now, check it all out, customize your ship or try to raid the Magellan. We are looking forward to seeing you there and hearing more of your great ideas and feedback.
See you in the AlterVerse,
