Update 184: Luminance - Released!
Thu, 29 September 2022



Hello everyone,


Today, we’re happy to release alpha update 184 for War of Rights! The primary feature of the update is the big lighting revamp, titled “Luminance”, which was announced as part of the 160th anniversary of the battle of Antietam/Sharpsburg 2 weeks ago (click HERE
to read it). The more accurate lighting that Luminance in itself brings to the table might seem like a relatively small step in increasing the visual fidelity of the game - a continuous process we’re committed to, but with the upgrade resulting in War of Rights entering the physically based rendering spectrum comes a much greater artistic freedom going forward (some of the assets that have already gained a great deal in their visuals from this in this update are: the sun throughout the time of day, internal space of structures and flags).

It is important to note that the Luminance upgrade comes at a technical cost; Starting over with the implementation of all of the textures within the game and thus also the materials of all assets within the game. Due to this, it is possible that a few textures/materials might not seem as refined as they used to be in their original form (thanks to many years of tweaking). It will be a gradual process to get to the same level of material refinement once again.

Update 184 Patch Notes

    Added the Luminance overhaul to the game.
    Fixed 4th Alabama Company B not being spawnable on East Woods skirmish area, Antietam.

Update 185: Traversal & Destruction - Released!
Mon, 12 December 2022



Hello everyone,
Today we’re pleased to be bringing you update 185: Traversal & Destruction for the War of Rights alpha!

We are going to outline the three new features that have been in development these past months. The following features are important stepping stones on the path towards the community level editor and the release of horses. With that said, let’s take a look at their specifics!

Destruction System
With Update 185 comes our new destruction system, focusing initially on fence destruction. Each object is configured with its structural integrity in mind. For example, each individual rail can be independently damaged and broken by small arms and artillery rounds alike, but if you target the posts, you cause a collapse of the entire segment.

Initially, we will only be rolling out post and rail fences as well as one type of stonewall while we gather network performance statistics and make balancing changes. More fence types and other objects are to be supported by the destruction system soon.

Knockdowns
Another new feature with this update, designed to work in conjunction with the destruction system, are knockdowns. Artillery-round explosions now have a chance of knocking you off your feet, with the direction of the blast determining the direction you fall. In the future, we expect to expand knockdowns to other instances such as standing too close to a recoiling cannon, getting hit on the head by a musket butt, falling from a great height, and, eventually, getting hit by a horse at speed.

Vaulting and Climbing
Another big change in this update is the total overhaul of vaulting and the introduction of climbing.

The first thing you will notice with vaulting is that it will behave differently depending on the height of the obstacle; the taller it is, the longer it will take to clear it.

Secondly, you might notice that you can vault in a lot of locations you previously couldn’t. We have rewritten the obstacle detection to be more dynamic than before; vault areas that were previously hand-drawn in the editor are now calculated on the fly. This was an important pre-requisite for moving forward with the development of the Atlas level editor.

Finally, there is the addition of climbing. You can now clamber up obstacles that previously had to be navigated around. Climbing also lets you get on top of small objects such as barrels, rocks, and boxes, giving you access to new sightlines on some maps.

Now that we’ve gotten the major additions of Update 185 out of the way, let’s dive into the rest of the fixes and additions of today’s patch.

Update 185 Patch Notes

    Updated several environmental textures including leaves, plowed dirt fields, dry dirt, mud and dirt as well as MacAdam roads.
    Overhauled the Sherrick barn model.
    Updated the Roulette Farm scene to match the earliest known photograph (from the early 1900s) of its yard and stonewall entrance layout.
    Started the task of adding variations of flagstaff finials to the battle flags of the game. In this batch, we’ve added five finial models, including a common “acorn” style, three types of spades (decorative spears), and an eagle. More flags will get their historically correct finials as the amount of finial models is expanded.



Above is an Eagle finial, owned by Campfire Games Historical Artist and battle flag connoisseur, Bradley and the eagle’s digital self now featured in the game.

    Various character uniform and insignia tweaks in the wake of the visual changes of update 184: Luminance.
    Added Georgia State-issue (with cuff flashings) and Columbus Depot shell jackets to CS regiments and the character customizer.
    Fixed LD Moore House proxy.
    Changed the time of day of Colquitt’s Defence, South Mountain from 8.75 to 16.5 as was always the intended time of day.
    Updates to the materials of Dunker Church to better match its real life counterpart.
    Various model fixes for the structures featured in the game in order to better facilitate the lighting upgrades that update 184: Luminance brought to the table.
    Updates to the campfires for a more immersive drill camp.
    Battle flag materials are now either using cotton or silk presets based off of the historical artifact in an effort to showcase their digital counterparts as authentically as possible.
    Slight tweak to the spawn points of the Bloody Lane, Antietam skirmish area due to the updated Roulette Farm scene.
    Fixed the inverted artillery spawn points of the Framing Fencelines, Antietam conquest area.
    Updated the tree billboard textures for more dynamic and pretty visuals.
    Updated the visuals of the stone walls.
    The stacked bundles of wheat on the fields are now destructible.
    Updated the model of the larger bush in the game.
    Improved the proxies of a few environmental assets to better facilitate the requirements of the dynamic vaulting system.
    Fixed a few broken UI overview maps on South Mountain.
    Fixed the cloth of the battle flags sometimes vanishing.
    Fixed bayonets are no longer visually vanishing when cycling weapons (NCO sword/rifle).
    Various updates to the Christmas Event - you’ll have to join us in a few days to find out what exactly!


That's all for today - we look forward to be seeing you all vault, climb, destroy and get knocked off of your feet in the game!

Update 192: Optimizations & Fixes - Released!
Wed, 9 August 2023



Hello everyone,

Today’s War of Rights alpha update is a relatively small one but we thought it best to get it to you all as soon as possible as it contains a few rather nice improvements, fixes and additions to the game.


Update 192 Patch Notes

    Further optimized the game code, this time focusing on instancing the character attachments such as hats and bayonets as well as improved the river renderer efficiency, resulting in upwards of 30% performance improvements at isolated moments in the game such as when looking at the Shenandoah and Potomac rivers of Harpers Ferry.
    Recapturing the point in skirmishes while overtime and counter attack is active should no longer result in a faulty end of the game round.
    Added 4 new customizable units to the game: 1st and 2nd US Sharpshooters, 1st North Carolina Sharpshooters and 1st Virginia Battalion. These will now also be available at random in the Conquest, Contention and Picket Patrol game modes.
    Fixed the artillery round smoke trails sometimes appearing to be wildly zig-zagging.
    Fixed the 1st person camera jolts when returning to shoulder arms.
    Tweaked the sunset lighting and sky colour for a more realistic look.
    Getting headshot before entering the spectating camera should no longer result in VoIP being muted until you spawn back into the game.
    Added the regimental flag of the 17th Michigan.
    Added the national flag of 1st North Carolina Sharpshooters.
    Updated the 14th North Carolina national flag, now matching surviving artifact.
    Added the national flag of the 39th New York.
    Added a regimental drum for the 39th New York.
    Added the regimental flag of the 1st Virginia Battalion.



    Fixed the flag snapping out of the hands of the flag bearer in 3rd person as he turns around.
    Fixed the bigger Pry Barn doors being locked.
    Fixed up all of the victory scenes of the Skirmishes game mode to once again include musicians.
    The Mumma graveyard stonewall is now vaultable.
    Added the flag of the selected flag bearer to the deployment screen.
    Fixed the wrong rank, weapon and secondary weapon sometimes being shown on the deployment screen.



That's all for today's update. See you on the fields of glory!
