30319, changes since 30206
new server option, minimum distance for deployables from Enemy flag
new server option, turn of flag distance check for deployables - so any items can be deployed closer to flags
fixed potential bug when deploying items near flags which would allow it in specific conditions
fixed railgun ammo problem
added current mission time limit to ESC menu so you see it before starting a "change time limit" vote
any item can easily be banned on a per-map basis by mappers, packs, weapons, mines, grens, modules, deployables etc
fixed an issue of the flag sticking to the bounds grid when you fly through it, now bounces back into mission area properly
fixed laser pointer stuck on using heavy weapon packs bug, though can not follow those projectiles anymore

Forcewalls give "can not be repaired" message since they can't be anyway and prevented related console error
removed fade effects from deployed Vehicle Teleport Pads to prevent invisibility exploit in HERCs teleported
Shrike rolls more when turning and is more maneuverable in the air

admins can choose to make airbases have no walls in ShifterConfig.cs with $Shifter::AirbaseWalls = 0;
admins can allow vehicles to teleport with flags in ShifterConfig.cs with $Shifter::VehicleTeleportFlag = 1; this was previously allowed but has been prevented by default so there is no possible way to teleport with a flag
admins can toggle server models via console command ~ commandtoserver('Serverside', 1); to make serverside OR commandtoserver('Serverside', 0); to make clientside vehicles version
superadmins/admins can toggle chem/luker enemy telepad use commandtoserver('ToggleChemTelepad', 1);
admins can set starting map via console command ~ commandtoserver('SetMap', Katabatic);
new server command, type commandtoserver('ToggleBots', X); to turn off/set limit as admin/SA, X = 0 or any number up to 16
new server command, type commandtoserver('FairTeams', X); to toggle as admin/SA, X = 1 or 0
new server command, type commandtoserver('RandomTeams', X); to toggle as admin/SA, X = 1 or 0

engineer repair gun a little tiny bit slower on objects
ravager direct damage increased again, less blast radius

added EMP grenades, EMP mines and Ravager to Goliath loadout
added new large turret barrel, "Anti-Vehicle ELF" which is a 200m range beam that only targets vehicles and 100% heat fast energy drain to use in tandem with other turrets against the strong shifter vehicles
added new weapon option, "Blaster Ricochet mode" for standard blaster, these green blaster bolts will bounce around longer, travel slower, do less damage, requires more energy and is slightly innacurate
added EMP mode to Laser Rifle, requires 100% energy to fire and 1 EMP grenade, strikes target with lingering EMP
added Power Charger mode to Laser Rifle, requires a Whiteout Grenade to fire, gives a quick burst of energy so you can fire second shot much quicker
added Item Destroyer mode to Railgun, requires an AP grenade and does high damage to items for sniping equip long range
added Satellite Strike (stay still and target area) and Glowstick (a flashlight for dark areas) options to Laser Targeter

changed arbitor beacon, they also get an EMP boost when it is used

30206
Condor can now transport any ground vehicle like it did with the HERC in previous version
new server option, Gravitron "Grapple" mode is back - pulls you toward objects

30123
Condor Cargo can pick up a herc and drop it off (of your own team)

30121
amount of vehicles remaining shown next to vehicle name in vehicle stations
disabled part of the morph indoor checking code, it wont stop users activating near interiors unless they are "enclosed" now
Server Option to allow players to leave the mission area (for those Bombers hunting Gravbikes)
Voice Pack taunts are sent to players who have used a voice pack taunt, saves bandwidth too
Deployable Generator will only power own team items, default is 3, mappers can set limit to 4 or less if needed, gains and loses power too

Herc Test 4
Shifter Client script updated for reticles - only the 100kb script is needed, no new shapes
Nuke Bounce reduced
Nuke now looks better
Ravager balanced
Godhammer projectile spread reduced when missiles not locked
Cyclone Launcher energy drain up a bit and damage down for cyclone missiles
Frag mortars and others like it redone so they don't shoot out at mach5 and explode in a millisecond, slower and are more reliable now so they wont go through thin walls
Lazcannon balanced and unlimited fire bug sorted
Shockmine carry capacity reduced, shockmine health reduced
Shockmine damage to your rear reduced from x3 to x2.5
Fixed the armour selection problem when in obs/dead mode
Improved loadouts a bit, so when a base player picks Assault favs they get Merc armour (instead of light female)
Upped the heavy aircraft shields and movement power a little.
Added Rocket damage type (since everyone loves it so much) and added rocket death messages. (this means that rockets are not considered to be missiles when they hit a target, but they still have the same damage ratios)
Repair Beacons now only repair damaged objects and only wear out after repairing a certain amount of damage (shifterconfig.cs factor needs to be changed)
removed some errors when repair grenades repair permanent forcefields - made it not repair on item with no damage or damage level! (might save cpu)
Flamer had plasma damagetype by mistake
wraith fighter turbograv less body friction to bounce off ground easier when colliding
railgun bullet trail changed for fps
worked on a morph(flight) pack explosion bug, jump off close to wall and change resulted in explosion
duplicate detpack datablocks removed, 20
large deployable turret barrel can be set before deloying, use "[S] Pack Options" key, any non-plasma barrel causes a power activation delay of 5 seconds (no turret power)
large deployable turrets are disabled at 90% damage (was 100%)
another telepad flag exploit, prevented.
incorporated the 25026 serverside weapon reticle code and removed clientside reticle code from ShifterClient.cs (not required download, can get this file by itself if you want)
Deployable Generator (powers items in 40m radius) can no longer be placed so close to flag
BlastWall and LargeWall wider
Forcefield with gen is wider and not as tall, will stretch to meet roof up to 2x height
Shockwall thinner
ForceWall returned, resized and re-graphiced to reduce FPS degradation when it is layered
ForceWall will stretch up to 30m to reach a roof, otherwise 10m tall, 15m wide
Shrikes have Bomber, Napalm and Vortex modules again, but takes more energy to fire than wraith (bad energy converters).
Laser Turret and Large Deployable turret limits depend on team numbers, 1 turret per 2 on each team
Reduced default limits on amount of maximum mines of each type (Shock, Laser, Sticy, Standard, EMP, Lightning, Poison, Shockwave) all these plus deployables and everything adds up to = lag and maybe crashing
changed code so that directfire weapons can damage forcefields - heatergun could not previously damage a forcefield
increased damagelevels for forcewall and shockfield, made forcefield gen wall able to take more damage (forcewalls do damage to their power beacon, but only when the energy has been reduced from damage, it recharges slowy and is 0 on deploy)
devistator, nuke, gib cannon, plasmcannon, sludgecannon uses 100% energy when fired
vehicle timeout can now be set by admins, default 60 seconds (only when last pilot dies, vehicle will vanish after timeout) - should prevent some crashing when 20 vehicles lay around the map for 4 hours
wheeled vehicles and HERCs will not be affected by shockwave effects at all, no swaying etc
fixed an error when jugger purchases ammopack (may stop lots of bot spam too ?)
added extra ammo for Equalizer to AmmoPack
Napalm heavy mortars arm and explode quicker, intended to be anti-personnel
Teleport to vehicle on purchase works for all vehicles now (makes buying them at airbases much easier)

Plastiques have deployed amount limit, reduced carrying capacity a bit too
Deployable Generators now add to extra vehicles allowed (instead of airbase, emplacement and vehicle pad) 1 gen allows more weak vehicles (light grav, shrike etc), 2 gens adds more medium (grav tank, bomber etc, 3 gens adds heavy vehicles (griffon, carnivore, wheeled tank etc) and 4th gen adds herc
Deployable Generator Pack shape changed to a crate, Deployable Generator Pack Icon added
Collossus Mobile Point Gun fires faster - a volley of shells
Redid the Telepad effects, pad is dark when off, much nicer sequences etc
Deployable Vehicle Pad creation disc shows power state
Assassin Shocktouch beacons fixed up, they used to be used up in weird situations
added, players get knocked around from being rammed by other players (boost into someone and they get pushed)
added, vehicles take damage from ramming players at high speeds (ram a heavy in your shrike and you take a hit)
added, 0.5 second server delay to most collisions - maybe this will save lag and cpu too, if inaccuracy occurs it willbe reduced or removed

turret reticle for mobile gun platform and others, fixed up their huds while in turret
Turret hacking and repairing and hacking again fixed up AGAIN.. grrr..
When Anti-VehicleTheft device option is enabled the green forcefield cube in the MPB is not shown as it is not needed - this means when the vehicle is cloaked it will be hidden properly - but only in AntiVehicleTheftMode = 1 (which shocks and poisons enemy team when they jump in your vehicle)
hud icons for heatergun ammo, rocketlauncher, enviropack, boosterpack, detpack, emplacement, airbase, vpad, godhammer,

if models not present vehicle hud reverts to single list (can override in ShifterConfig.cs)
server versions reworked to automatically detect and use contents of ShifterServer.vl2 - no need for two different downloads again, just move the ShifterClient.vl2 somewhere else to turn the server into a NO DOWNLOAD REQUIRED version
Shifter server uses password "meatshake" by default, for Vehicle versions mainly to prevent new player confusion when they try to join a server which requires a download.

Carnivore death messages fixed
Shield and Repair beacons deploy distance from each other increased (they repair turrets now)
Some missiles with large flare distraction distances reduced (they wont chase a flare 400m away from them anymore)
Laser Mine range down a little
Merc Booster Energy drain reduced a little
Accelerator pad, correct name when buying, now has 2x more boost
Added Heat locking to Long Range mortar turret so it will primarily shoot at vehicles and anything with 30% heat, not at people walking
Napalm damage radius increased from 15 to 30m, this is for Napalm Mortars and Napalm Bombs (?)
Made the green disc on the deployable vpads bigger, this is the bit to hack and it looks a bit better on the vpad, airbase one is a bit bigger too
Laser Turret a little less damage, activates quicker, brighter beam which stays visible longer
Derms can now cloak properly
Jugger, +10 more mortars
Jugger, Mortar Grenades 4 or Laser Mines 4
Dread, +5 more mortars
Dread swapped booster pack for shockwave gun
Arbitor gets vehicle modules
Assassin +4 Sniper Rifle gun ammo
Wheeled Vehicles can drive under water now, they don't explode when they touch water anymore.
Changed Jugger auto shield check, so it should not spam chat window with "Shield Deactivated" messages anymore - better check its shields still work in all cases where they should work
Dread - pressing beacon when shields already active, message changed to say its already active!
Scout Bouncer grenades get more boost +40% and more radius x2 - should be like T1 scout grenades now (though this might cause probs if things move too fast). they now bounce less and slide more to be easier to use not to launch self into the ground, but can scoot them into enemy bases or down hills
Laser mines fire rapid every 2 seconds until they pop
Pack Option key message changed when no options from "weapon" to "pack" when no option available
Sticky Mines do not bounce off non-terrain and non-interiors, they can stick to anything and look really stupid.
Light armours a little more resistant to plasma.
Boosterpack and Boosterbeacon reworded, makes heat, Boosterpack cooling time and energy use reduced, boosterbeacon uses no energy
Vulcannon blast radius and explosion effect
VulanTurret Barrel, explosion effect - no radius damage still though
Ammo Pack now works from Remote invo Station!!bug fixed
Chem cloak beacon now has message when you use it
Merc Booster beacon gives message when used
MDM is back on all mortars, MDM costs ammo and energy to use.
Airbase, Vpad and Emplacement all return to pool after destroyed now
Heater gun cooling messages stop at less than 50, cooling complete still pops up
MDM takes ammo, energy and 1 second
Booster Pack heat set to 1 every 3 seconds
Repair Beacon fixes (this may affect how fast repair packs work, or hack etc) deployable plasma turret, telepad, accelepad, laser turret, indoor turret, outdoor turret, shockmine, large turret base
LArge Turret Base health reduced 10% (because you can repair beacon them) should make missiles more use against them.
AAmissile turret barrel removed - blame fumi! hehe
Missile Module - proximity radius increased, turning speed increased (trying to make it hit targets when it should)
Noticed an error in Booster Module flames, they should last properly now
removed Item/Ammo from 2nd heavy mortar image to fix reticle, not tested
Tournament mode team selecting buttons show team names
Dread energy recharge faster and shields stronger
Arbitor EMP/elf damage reduced
Goliath Lava damage reduced
After checking all the Goliath resistance put the laser resistance back to what it was before
Sensor Jammer Pack also Passive Jams(like assassin) while activated to make the Jammer Beacon stop shooting at it (kinda a hack to get the effect needed). Turrets need cameras AND jammers to shoot cloaked or sensor jammed people - not JUST a Jammer
Reduced all the damagelevels of Emplacement/airbase/vpads

Railgun damage Vs objects more than doubled
Thumper not able to be made invincible by deploying inside object, now has larger shootable shape and changed appearance, easier to kill these at long range now as you can actually shoot them
Flare Beacon, same changes as thumper, a bit stronger and fires flares more often
Laptop removed, causes unhackable object bugs and enemy teamchat spying counter productive to teamwork discussion and match play
Removed bomb modules from shrike (finally), napalm, vortex and bomber, still on slower wraith
Napalm damage only really hurts players now
Made sure vortex is doing its job against objects
this is off>>Camera can now see people! Can see jammed, but not cloaked - like a player, this lets turrets and motion turrets shoot jammed people and Assassins. Motion sensor still only sees motion - fooled by jammer, Pulse sensor still only sees pulse - fooled by jammer
Shockwave effect random flag drop reduce from 50% to 33% (scout grenade uses shockwave effect)
Flares, used to fall the ground and kinda stick - now they bounce more and slide more and fall slower, but can move faster - so all in all they are in the sky more
Morph Pack activate bug fixed I think
Morph Pack, forward speed reduced (not after burner), after burner energy drain increased, vertical up thruster power increased, 3rd person camera view less lag, ground collision damage and speed changed so it wont explode on contact with dirt. Basically now its slower and easier to drive near ground.
Morph 30 second reactivate timer should be back now, requires 95% of energy to start
Jammer Beacon a bit stronger, bigger
Can observe some objects through Command Console once again (like long time ago), Jammer Beacon
Stopped Remote Invos from rotating you towards them when you use them (annoying buggers)
Mortar Explosion camera shaker severity reduced 50% on two explosion types, should be less annoying but still useful
Doubled energy requirement for some Modules vortex, bomber, napalm
Renamed Plasma Turret Deployable tag to Large Deployable Turret in Command Console and when looking at it so it still makes sense if you change barrels
Had a go at fixing permacloak, might have worked
Jammer Beacon no longer detects, still jams 50m and decloaks Cloakers
Cameras cannot be jammed by a sensor jammer pack, they only see visible and have 40m range
Removed unused datablocks to speed joining server, heatergun, lockjaw, electrophin, heavybolterturret, lazcannon, firewall, deployable sensor jammer (not same as Jammer Beacon, never used I think), shockfloor, deployableshockerbarrel,
Satchel Charge removed from Chem
Shockwave Gun require more energy
Cyclone sucks more energy
Satchel damage changed to reduce from center of blast - should have same power at ground zero though

changes for 0054
Telepad not as tall
Laser Mines work
Blaster Module was a bit powerful

changes for 0051

uh oh, can't remember much
some death messages fixed, added etc
able to manually control turrets now (and they count to score) though they might be .4 seconds slower to shoot at people!!
removed alot of fileCRC check redundancy so joining server *may* be quicker...?
messed with missile turrets more - AAmissile is stronger, reloads slower, has more radius, fires on 99%+ heat, normal missile fires on 50% heat and wont chase as long

changes for 0050
