41.46 IWBUMS beta released

Hello all, earlier today we released version 41.46 into the IWBUMS public beta.

The full changelist can be found here, and the edited highlights can be seen below.

  • Persistent zed outfits. If you leave a lady zombie in a spiffo costume locked in a bathroom and go for a long walk – when you return she won’t have morphed into someone else. The same going for all costume zeds.
  • Trailers and vehicle towing.
  • New outdoor ‘zed stories’ where you come across zeds dressed the way they died. Hunting trips, fishing trips, trappers, trailer crashes, and some fun ones too.
  • More visible gun attachments. New ‘ammo strap’ clothing item. Can be worn, contain shells or bullets, and increases reload speeds.
  • New hair-styles. New beards. New masks.
  • Changes to car damage on zeds. Repairable bonnets/hoods. Lots of other balance-y stuff. A whole bunch of fixes, including some polish for the cutaway system. Best to read it all here really.

In terms of the MP Strike Force, Yuri and Andrei are currently fixing up bugs that have been spotlit during some testing from General Arcade’s own QA team.

Yuri today, for example, fixed up a bug that stripped zeds down to their underwear after you killed them. Once glaring issues like these are ironed out then the testing pool will made a bit wider, incorporating the wider PZ team.

So, hopefully, we’ll have more and more news and videos of the MP game as it comes to fruition in coming weeks.

A changelist of all IWBUMS patches since the 41 beta was released can be found here. A general list of stuff added to PZ, and vids of features being worked on, is kept here – so you don’t have to plough through endless dev blogs for info. The Centralized Block of Italicised Text would like to direct your attention to the PZ Wiki should you feel like editing or amending something, and the PZ Mailing List that can send you update notifications once builds get released. We also live on Twitter right hereOur Discord is open for chat and hijinks too!
