As we did last year, we wanted to give everyone an update about how the mod is doing, and how the project, in general, is doing. But first, we wanted to say something to you, the players and fans of the mod.
It has been one hell of a year, we hope you all have been staying safe out there in the dark waters and have remembered to come up for oxygen once in a while.
We hope that you all get to have a safe end of the year celebration and that this new year will be kinder to us all. Take care of each other, look after those that have had an extra rough year, and show your kindness to strangers too. We are all in this together.
Nitrox, 2020 – A lot of work done
At the start of 2020, we made a post trying to explain what our focus would be. Part of that was to improve communication, we decided to make an entire website https://nitrox.rux.gg/ where users could download the newest version of the mod. We also made a blog where we shared what we were working on, and how we did it. Social Media accounts were also made Twitter, Reddit, as well as reworked our Discord server as part of this. Helping to keep everyone informed on our progress, and to give us the ability to let everyone know when we have news or updates to share. We hope that this qualifies as a task we have successfully completed.
With Nitrox patch 188.8.131.52 out of the door, we hope you are having a blast exploring the darkest depths of the ocean with your friends. With massive improvements towards building, docking, Seamoth being less volatile and with the story pings working. Improved UI in the config file and automatic pause & resume for the server. We are really proud of the work we’ve put into this patch and we are ending this year on a high note for the mod.
For 2021 we want to focus on the synchronization between players, the creature AI, resources and vehicles up to the standards closer to the single-player experience. We will of course continue our work on the buildings and we are looking into ways to make it the mod easier to set up and play together.
