3.9.9.6 Update Notes

by Nelson Sexton

Posted on May 09, 2015

Hello!If you're interested in testing out this upcoming update head on over to the Preview branch! You can gain access by right clicking on Unturned in your Steam library, selecting properties, navigating to the Betas tab and entering the secret passcode "OPERATIONMAPLELEAF".

This patch is early today so that it can be tested with tons of people. It completely changes how the networking sends packets in the hopes of significantly boosting performance with many players, so the results of this test will determine how further networking optimizations proceed. If it goes poorly the game will be reverted to 3.9.9.5 and these notes will be deleted.

  • Added new packet batching system.

Tweaks

  • Tweaked metal barricade/structure health a bit higher.

Thanks for reading!
