"Closer" update is now available!

Postby PapaYankee » Thu 21 Sep 2017 15:05

The new update for Steel Division: Normandy 44, developed with the help of selected members of our community, is live! It brings “Closer Combat”, a brand new game mode (as described in this announcement), official servers for 4v4, a remastered first solo mission, and more.

Let’s have a look to the complete changelog:

NEW FEATURES
Closer Combat mode (read the description of this new mode here):
  • Both teams can deploy much closer to each other.
  • All transported units can be purchased and deployed without its vehicle.
  • To score +1 Victory Point, teams now have to control 52% of the map (instead of 51% in the Conquest mode).
  • This mode is available along Conquest and Destruction, and for every map, including 10v10.
Other improvements:
  • Remastered first US campaign mission, to make it a bit more accessible for newcomers. The first timer to seize Audouville has been removed, there is now one single deployment zone, and the general pace of the mission has been revamped. (old saved games will still be playable in the older version)
  • New shortcut to toggle “Bullet-Time” in Single Player (campaign & skirmish): “P” or “K”, depending on your profile, can be changed in the options.
  • Custom 4v4 games will now automatically be hosted on official dedicated servers instead of peer-to-peer, to help reduce lag.
  • Improved Steam integration.
  • QuickPlay button has been moved to the bottom of the multiplayer menu.
Bug fixing:
  • Fixed various crashes.
  • Fixed a rare freeze when watching a replay.
  • Fixed a bug when a vehicle explodes. The explosion sound now works properly.
  • Fixed a bug where Panther G tracks did not move.
  • Fixed a bug where Bef. Panzer II C left track did not move.
  • AB Vickers HMG from the 6th Airborne are now airborne soldiers instead of regular ones.
BALANCING
General:
  • Fixed US Sherman DD frontal armor value from 9 to 10.
  • AAA now suppress on a much larger area, planes too close from each other will be suppressed altogether (single planes should take the same suppression as before).
17.SS:
  • Increased StuG IV range to 1200m with 12 AP.
  • Stug IV now come in packs of 2 rookies in B and 4 rookies in C.
  • Removed StuG III G.
  • New repartition of the 3 Bef Panzer IV : a single tank in B and a pack of 2 in C.
6th Airborne:
  • Increased PIATs accuracy of AB PIAT team from 6 to 8.
  • Guards Armoured:
  • Increased SOD PIAT accuracy from 6 to 8 (6 on the move).

Have fun, guys!

"To help reduce lag" instead of "to help reducing lags" would be better English.

Man how its this supposed to improve the game, make it even less like war game and drive more of the community away. What the hell with you guys do you just have some french aversion to making money or is this some kinda protest against macrons labor laws??????????? Just please give us wargame with ww2 units and stop trying to reinvent the wheel into a square for the love of god. The problem is not the game dynamic any way for one its these lam ass flat hedgerow maps. Fisrt you make German armor unbeatable now it allied air that is so OP god just bring it back to wargame and give us a DLC with better maps like north Africa or the USSR or even early war France just any period period where they allies and Germans match up, late war is so mismatched!!!!!!!!!!!1

It isn't Wargame. If you want Wargame, play Red Dragon.

I think that's beyond him. I personally think they have done a good job they have plenty of stuff they can still add and a few more campaigns or even quick missions wouldn't go amiss, but I am sure we will have more DLC's could even add a War game air land battle/ red Dragon style campaign with all the allied divisions vs the German divisions.
