Game Update. New Map! Ernest Ridge

Main Image

Holdfast: Nations At War has been updated. We have a new map for everyone to check out in this week’s update! Ernest Ridge.

 

Ernest Ridge

Situated atop a hill lies a small village where we expect a lot of mayhem to ensue as both teams push one another back and forth for control over the position. If you’re not looking forward to a frontal assault, there’s plenty of natural cover that will allow for flanking manoeuvres. 

 

Have a go at the map yourself by joining one of the Army Front official servers! Ernest Ridge is playable on the Army Battlefield and Army Conquest game modes.

Optimisation. Client Stability

Once again, we’ve spent a good majority of this update’s development time on plugging leaks that degraded client-side performance over long periods of play time. Here are a few more details on what we’ve been up to.

 

List of Optimisations

- Optimised various instances which were causing framerate to plummet when a lot of players spawn at the same time.

- Optimised client-side VoIP performance.

- Optimised an instance that occurred when a player switches their weapon.

- Optimised the scoreboard.

- Optimised player name tags.

- Optimised the terrain shaders.
