SCUM - Patch 0.4.88.25324
Hello everyone, here we are with another update!
As you already know, there was a big SCUM tournament held last weekend to celebrate our 2nd anniversary. We thank you for your amazing support during these past two years, and here is a video showcasing the most important features implemented during our Early Access adventure: https://youtu.be/mpvjeoBUpms
Now, lets see what this update holds!
We've received a lot of feedback from both tournament participants and viewers alike, and now we're releasing the tournament mode out to the world! Activating tournament mode: #startournamentmode <Center X> <Center Y> <Delay> <Duration>
- Center X/Center Y - center point of the event (last point), bare in mind that it can't be outside of the map boundaries so it automatically gets moved within the borders even if you place it outside.
- Delay - time in minutes from activating the tournament to the tournament actually starting, a preparation time of a sort.
- Duration - you've guessed it, the duration time of the tournament, also in minutes.
Ending tournament mode: #endtournamentmode Rules:
- If you leave the zone, you have about 5 second to return before dying.
- You can respawn normally by using fame points, but "At Shelter" respawn is prohibited.
- When the zone is at 10% of it’s original size, Sudden Death mode will be activated which means no more respawns.
- The winner is the last person to be alive after Sudden Death is activated.
- The area is closing in dynamically and the smallest area has a radius of 1 meter.
- You will get notified (visual and sound notification) about tournament being activated, a little before tournament starts, start of the tournament, sudden death activation and tournament ending.
- Each participant gets a set of starting gear on every respawn and the starting gear includes:
- Improvised Handgun .50cal
- Improvised Courier Backpack
- 20 rounds of .50AE
- Painkiller pills
- Toggle scoreboard by pressing F1.
There is a lot of room to twist the tournament mode to your liking, you can change the map size beforehand, change respawn costs, tweak fame points, tweak loot and a lot of other stuff to customize the whole experience.
Our weapon arsenal is getting a new member!
A real classic amongst its kin, M1911 is a semi-automatic, magazine-fed pistol chambered for the .45ACP cartridge. It will spawn in all the regular places + WWII bunkers. You will be able to find it in three different versions: standard, gold and engraved.
Feeling tired after a whole day of chasing hot puppets in your area? Found a new tractor and want to treat your squadmates to a cold beer?
Then SCUM Bar is the perfect place for you! The bar is located on the old location in the city of Samobor but it got some upgrades, so go and check it out.
There is no party without good music, so we have a brand new playlist just for the SCUM Bar. Not only that, but you can also start a fight by turning the music off on this DJ mixer.
If you want to be respected in our SCUM Bar society, you have to look cool. What better way than to put some Party Glasses on, eh?
And of course, you don't want to go drinking unprepared. You can use the new Hip Flask and come ready for a wild night!
