Another map complete. It's the biggest in the game so far. Have also written a few first drafts of encounters, and am working on a new city background to go with the new map.

Another map complete, and the half finished one completed. That's it for maps on this update.

It's maybe a little early to announce this, as it's still quite provisional, but I'm too excited to hold it in. I've added a basic implementation of body part specific targetting. If all goes well, should finish the ranged combat side of it today.

Thanks Nomad. Pretty sure this will be a feature at this point. Working on doing the same with Melee now. It will be a fairly simple implementation at first, but will be enhanced with time. After that, will have a look at adding weapon crafting and a few weapon crafting options for version 12.

Fixed being able to play ally encounters more than once, resulting in multiple copies of same ally being added to team. (Thanks Nomad!)

Added additional information in the body part targeting to show cth, damage % and status effects caused as a result of targeting body parts, and fixed a couple of issues with this new feature. Working on testing the build now, so if nothing major comes up, the build should be available in the next few days.

Prevented first mission tutorial being replayed in subsequent visits to map, and doubled path draw speed. Testing is ongoing.

Hey there.
I just watched your development video on Kickstarter.
Thanks for the shout out.   =)  You're welcome.

Now... you said that it reloads for you between missions (for your active team members).
That's cool. However, is it possible to switch the checks? You said it checks the character's inventory, then checks the base inventory. Is it possible to change that order so that it only removes ammo from the character if the base inventory has run out of that ammo?

Not at all, thanks for the help.

Yeah, given that the purpose of auto loading is to save time, taking from the base inventory makes sense. I'll pencil this in for the end of V13.
