PTU 1.1 - Coming in Hot!
(Citizen Star News) - by Citizen Ed - 2015-03-06 - Public Test Universe v1.1 was launched, but many report not being able to use quite yet.
UPDATE - BREAKING: 1.1 Issues on the PTU - New PTU patch being built.
As James Pugh put it during Reverse The Verse: v1.1 is "coming in hot". Difficulties getting it working can be attributed to a lot of changes under the covers: 64 bit floats for map addressing, new damage systems, REC, new weapon mount system and new skeleton for animations. Could even say it's coming in heavy at 30+ GB as well.
Many citizens and civilians are chomping at the bit to get a taste of this release, with flyable Gladius and Hangar ready Retaliator, but most will have to wait.
PTU has been unstable to unusable for folks, even launching and patching not working yet. Announcement of it's existance has been pulled from the header of the main site.
Patience is advised.
Devops is working on the unable to load metafile problem plaguing many.
Version 1.0 remains available for play, which is great... exactly why the PTU was created.
I am sure the problems will be worked out soon. Looks like 1.1 is going to need a bit of work, but also will be getting us farther along than we thought.
