SCUM - Patch[]

Hello everyone, hope you've been well. We got yet another update for you so let's get to it! Want to see the summary of what was added, but in video format? As usual we released the video updated as well. Enjoy! YouTube Video: SCUM - Patch Update #8


Heard you didn't like the nightvision we had in the game? Not realistic you said, can't see anything you said. Well you know what? We kinda agree. So we have revamped the way NVG's look and feel in the game. Instead of the old brightness filter which made it possible to see through certain objects, we revamped it so it actually simulates photons hitting the lenses and the infrared light emitting from the goggles.

Different light sources will impact the vision more as well, hope you enjoy!

New Animations[]

We have also implemented the new check chamber animation. This is a continuation of the check magazine feature except when you don't have, well the magazine. Instead of the old boring numeric indicator, each rifle has now received a custom animation to check if the chamber is safe or on friendly fire, I mean round load ofc.
