    Post Entropia Universe 16.0.0 Release Notes

    New Features
    Lock TargetNext Target has been replaced by a new Action named Lock Target. The functionality of this Action is identical to using the Left Mouse Button to click on a target. Priority selection among multiple potential targets depends on the direction of the camera center (targeting reticule in Aim Mode) and relative proximity. Repeating this Action within a short timeframe will cycle through available targets. Lock Target does not target avatars.

    InteractInteract is a context-sensitive Action performed on the currently targeted entity. If the current target is a vehicle, Interact will cause your avatar to enter the vehicle. If the target is a fruit on the ground, your avatar will pick it up. If the target is a creature, your avatar will move to interaction range and enable Auto Use Tool, if possible. Holding the Interaction key for approximately half a second will open a context menu for targets with valid secondary actions available. For targets with exactly two valid actions, holding the Auto Use Tool key for half a second will perform the secondary action.

    Photo Camera
    Enabled by holding the Camera Mode action for approximately half a second. This will trigger a free moving camera around the avatar which can be controlled by your mapped actions for moving Left, Right, Move Forwards, Move Backwards, Move Up and Move Down, etc. Scrolling with the mouse wheel will increase/decrease the camera movement speed. Using Scroll + Toggle Zoom action will increase/decrease the Field of View. Use the Camera Mode key or the ESC key to cancel Photo Camera Mode.

    • Targets within range are now indicated as such, and combat text is displayed when shooting at a target that is out of range.
    • Improved the range of the Auto Use Tool functionality for melee weapons to prevent canceling when close to a target but not quite in range.
    • The crosshair for a locked target will scale based on the distance from the target.
    • When a target takes damage a flash and crosshair animation will be displayed.
    • Auto Use Tool will remain active if the avatar switches tools while a target is locked.
    • The Relax Tool Action now aborts Auto Use Tool
    • Switching tools when in Ready Mode will immediately bring the next tool into Ready Mode.

    Camera and Interaction
    • The maximum and minimum camera view distances in Third-Person mode have been adjusted.
    • Using Right Mouse Button on your own avatar’s health bar will open context menu.
    • The camera will now be centered between the object you're interacting with and yourself.
    • Holding F or Right Mouse Button will open a context menu on targets with more than one valid action.
    • The Use Tool action will be activated once if tapped, and will activate Auto Use Tool when held. Triggering the Use Tool action again, or using the ESC key will cancel an active Auto Use Tool.
    • In Cursor Mode the camera can be rotated freely in Third-Person Mode with the Left Mouse Button. Reset by using the action Camera Freelook on Middle mouse button, using the right mouse button, or tap both left and right mouse button at the same time
    • The Camera Mode action toggles between First-Person and Third-Person Mode. There is an option to enable scrolling with the Mouse Wheel from Third to First Person to scope and back.
    • Visual outlines have been added for objects that can be interacted with.
    • In a vehicle Toggle Zoom will toggle a closer zoom if no scoped weapon is available.
    • The Toggle Zoom action can be enabled from Relaxed Mode and places the avatar into Scope and Ready Mode.
    • Using the Lock Target action will cycle between available targets.
    • Lock Target is only possible for targets within a range of 180 meters and in the avatar’s line of sight. A marker will indicate which creature will be chosen as the next valid target. The lowest maximum range for Lock Target is 80 meters.
    • Camera views now have proper collision detection and will enter first-person mode when the avatar is in a location that does not provide enough space for Third-Person camera view.
    • The ESC key will clear any active Auto Use Tool or deselect the current target.
    • When activating Cursor Mode the cursor will now properly start in the middle of the screen.
    • The interaction range for different targets has been unified.
    • Terminal interfaces now close automatically if the avatar moves a certain distance away.

    Character Movement
    • Character movement is much improved and more responsive.
    • The behavior of avatars when climbing steep terrain has been changed. Slopes of less than 50 degrees do not result in a movement speed penalty. Ascending slopes of between 50 and 64 degrees result in the avatar moving at normal walking speed.
    • Avatars can no longer ascend terrain steeper than 64 degrees.
    • Inertia has been adjusted to provide more consistent and realistic feedback when an avatar airborne (e.g. after jumping).
    • Avatars now always move in the direction the camera is facing.
    • When strafing, avatars will now always be centered on the screen.

    MindArk and the Planet Partners strive to ensure a smooth and problem-free Version Update. Nevertheless, even after extensive testing some issues may arise after release. Such issues are often addressed via mini-patches directly after a release and in subsequent patches. If you feel that the possibility of encountering minor issues or bugs directly after a Version Update affects your gameplay to an extent that Entropia Universe is not enjoyable, please wait until the mini-patches have been released and any last minute issues have been resolved.

    The new additions are very complex, I can now understand why MA was so excited about this update. So am I, can't wait to try it out! There are so many new options, we will need quite some time to adjust, but they look great.
    There some things I don't like, but, it is what it is.

    Good job!

    • Removed the "Move To Target when Interacting" option setting. That behavior is now always the case.

    Isn't this going to get really annoying? Crafting for instance?

    I have so many questions! I guess I better test them lol! I’ll update this list when I figure it out

    This stuff intrigues me -
    “Avatars located in a vehicle that gets destroyed now die.”
    Does that mean no need to target the body? Auto loot when ship killed?

    “Targets within range are now indicated as such, and combat text is displayed when shooting at a target that is out of range.“
    Pirates too?

    “Avatars now always move in the direction the camera is facing”
    In a vehicle too? What about panning around the ship looking for mobs/pirates?

    “Removed the "Move To Target when Interacting" option setting. That behavior is now always the case.“
    In pvp too?

    “Removed the "Copy My Avatar Link" action.”
    Hope we can still copy other people’s links.

    Thanks ^ (number of bullet points above)

    "Avatars located in a vehicle that gets destroyed now die." -- This may both empower and encourage certain groups to "close" oil rigs again. Was this intended? Was it intended to address certain "workarounds" to getting looted in space?
