    Patch #2 Notes

    -Burning pteras will be unable to initiate grabs
    -Fixed Alpha Carno skin to use proper elongated horns and spikes
    -Prevented dilo from poisoning teammates with its bite
    -Increased dilo bite poison chance to 50%
    -Changed camera pivot point to head for tyrants. Exploring similar change for smaller dinos
    -Removed crosshairs for most dino classes
    -Chromatic aberration setting now applies correctly
    -Fixed cursor appearing after class select closes
    -Improved team join balance logic [note: autobalance is still pending]
    -Initial shader optimization for dinosaurs
    -Added 9 second delay to suicide command to prevent using it to escape combat
    -Fixed team counts in team select menu
    -Fixed class counts in class select menu
    -Added battle-scarred rex to the default inventory
    -Smoothed camera tracking for humans held by ptera
    -Smoothed camera tracking and improved angle for humans eaten by rex and spino
    -Increased visibility on ptera/tupa tracking roar outlines
    -Fixed autumn ptera and shadow ptera skins being flipped
    -3D scope no longer enabled by default
    -Adjusted naming of shadow settings to accurately reflect purpose
    -Fixed chatlog disappearing while users were typing messages
    -Initial optimization pass on PC-Transfer
    -Added collisions to rocks missing collision on PC-Forestchasm
    -Decreased trigger area of Dilo Clubhouse Achievement
    -Add collisions to second objective computer terminal on GTTC-Docks
    -Modified shadow configuration to minimize shadow flickering
    -Adjusted raptor and carno heights
    -Swapped placement of ping and score on the scoreboard
    -Potential fix for audio dropping after server map transition
    -Potential fix for loadscreen crash when servers are transitioning maps
    -Standalone dedicated server support

    Additionally we've temporarily added the Volcano Spinosaurus skin to everyone’s default inventory pending our smoothing out of inventory issues on the backend. Those of you who have already received your skin will temporarily see a duplicate skin in your ingame inventory.

    Note: the first balance update will be coming within the next week. We’re still collecting data from matches and we want to handle stability updates before making any significant balance changes. We’re definitely reading your feedback in the mean time!

    Update: Our push to steam accidentally left out our dedicated server tool, you can temporarily grab the latest version here. Place the two files in the Binaries folder of PC:E.

    This is a another great set of changes. I can't wait to see more statistics and visual data from matches.
    PCE Level Diagrams - adding more each week!
    GTTC Variants for Classic Maps - let's give GTTC some more love!

    "-Burning pteras will be unable to initiate grabs"
    YES!!!
    Now could you please do this for all weapons for stopping hunter pounce? And while we're at it, can we have the ability to jump off of humans?
    -Changed camera pivot point to head for tyrants. Exploring similar change for smaller dinos


    All of these changes are welcomed and wanted. Great job as usual!

    A lovely patch, proof that you guys really are going to be making a great game!

    Only problem with it, the loss of a crosshair for dinosaurs is unfortunate.

    It didn't do anything on any dinosaurs but the Cryo/Dilo, which we kept.

    I'm really not sure why it wasn't like this to begin with, but glad this was fixed so quickly.

    Excellent idea. No more suiciding while grabbed or in the jaws of a Tyrant to prevent giving up the kill (you know who you are.)

    Plenty of other great fixes as well. Looking forward to the first balance patch, to see what that brings.

    Nice, I'll test it
    Will the performace of the game be improved in next updates? Shame that I have only around 25 fps on medium settings, even though my laptop achieves the recommanded system requirements from steam's store website. I've told about it in this thread: http://primalcarnageforums.com/showt...ll=1#post16996

    I'm looking forward to next updates

    You're going to have to wait for all the servers to catch up and update first.
