Thank you.

EDIT: This may be painful to watch. He just put down a new sidewinder spawning building instead of just spawning another, seemingly showing that he doesn't know it's possible.
EDIT 6: Just unmuted the sound and realised there's a commentary. This could have been to show the building as a result.

EDIT 2: The tank, which I've only seen briefly in the stream, looks rather nice but he was in the passenger seat. Also, the limit hasn't been increased. That's unfortunate.

EDIT 3: Even more bizarre he does know how to spawn vehicles, he just put down an extra sidewinder building anyway :S.

EDIT 4: Spawn Beacon radius reduced?

EDIT 5: New scoreboard screen is nice. Very Warhawk like.

Key points from 1.3 so far:

1. Tank is available ...... It's called the "Ox heavy Tank" - has two types of cannon - the main cannon and a mortar type cannon (have to switch between the two) still has a second position that works the same as the warhawk tank.

2. The sidewinder (jetpack) is available, you cannot shot whilst driving but can shot from the saddle when stationary

3. You can choose a map option to have pre-set structures called the "blitz" option - It makes a totally pre-build base with turrets and everything. (looks really cool)

4. The Spawn beacon radius has been drastically reduced (which is stupid IMO)

5. Flak cannon and TOWpedo (see what I did there) is available (hard to tell what else is because the host is a plank)

6. "Explore" option allows you to play a map by yourself without worry of other people joining.

 

7. You'll notice triangles on all the buildings now ....This is so that for future updates you can have different weapons (ie - Jeeps with a rocket laucher instead of MG's) or turrets that are flaks etc etc.

 

8. New knife animation is now working

 

9. "sockets" have been put in to help with connecting walls to choke points

Thanks shika, 

 

didn't see the video, but the points you mentioned seem good. 

 

How exactly did you mean it with the 2 types of cannons in the tank, you just switch between the 2 by pressing a button, or do you need to switch between ,,seats,, in the tank? 

 

The ,,sockets,, are a must in my opinion. It's great, that LBI thought of them.

You switch between the tanks main cannon and an artillery weapon (similar to how a mortar would work) by using left/right on the D pad.

 

Left is the main cannon, right is the artillery.

 

Problem with the artillery is the enemy see a red/orange dotted line and then a circle target area when someone is aiming at you.

I think he was building duplicates of building mainly for demonstration purposes... there will still be people who havent seen SH yet :)

New sound for the rifle if im right?
Im quite looking forward to trying 1.3, ive not played since 1.2.11 :/

I like the new HUD, it seems to show you what ammo youve picked up which will help alot

Agree with the new score board - just what ive been looking for, less cluttered, more defined.

Just read Dylan's latest tweet and reading between the lines the 1.3 update should be out today. (2pm central time) which I believe is around 8/9 pm our time.
