edited March 2014 in Change Logs #1
It's been a bit, and LtBrandon has changed a lot more than I have currently, so I'll log what I've done and let him fill in his changes below.
  • [FIX] - NPCs and breakable props should now react properly to taking damage.
  • [FIX][FEATURE] - Rewrote the entire LS Expression2 library. The one we had only functioned through pure chance, it seems, and now we have a much better system. Of note: sbPlanets() and sbStars() no longer return a vector array, but rather an entity array. Also, LS functions can all be ran on the actual atmosphere entity, rather than requiring the programmer to PropSpawn stuff in each atmosphere in order to track it.
  • [FEATURE] - Added sbClimates(), an array of all the artificial environments (climate regulators) on the map.
  • [FIX][TWEAK] - Maximum sounds per E2 chip increased from 8 to 32. You should now be able to control an entire ship's worth of sound effects from a single chip.

    • [FIX] - Did some patching to the above LS Function additions. Now works properly.
    • [FIX] - Spacebuild's Planets array (and therefore everything that uses it) now no longer has two entries for every planet. This includes the sbPlanets() E2 function.
    • [FIX] - Getting melted by a star or hot planet will no longer set the player's model to an error.
    • [FEATURE] - Added the following E2 functions:
      • E:lsGetEnvironment() - Gets the environment that the target entity is being managed by.
      • sbEnvironments() - Like sbPlanets() and sbStars(), this one returns ALL the environment entities on the map.

    • [FIX] - Ass_Firework now explodes the target properly again. LtBrandon broke it by fixing a nearly 4-year-old typo. :V
    • [FIX][FEATURE] - Ply:setPosition(V) now works as originally intended. Players can move only themselves and anyone on their Prop Protect friends list. Respected+ can move still move anyone.
