18.104.22.168 Update Notes
Posted on January 18, 2019
TL;DR Workshop items will need some time to update, but the game should be more stable.
ExplanationFor a while Unturned has been using version 5.5 of the Unity engine (from 2016), but it's come time to upgrade. In recent years Unity has made stability a higher priority, and have been updating a "long term support" LTS version. The game is now upgraded to this 2017.4 LTS version.While not particularly glamorous, some of the primary motivations are:
- Taking advantage of newer optimizations in the engine.
- Removing workarounds for old unity bugs which will help improve performance.
- Supporting the Metal graphics API for Macs now that Apple has deprecated OpenGL.
- Fixing many longstanding issues and crashes, and continuing to get the LTS fixes going forward.
