    This update introduces automatic mod file downloading from the server you join.

    I hope this will show how easy KAG + modding is. Making a mod on your server is really as simple now as:

    1. Say you want to add bunnies on your server.
    2. Go to this thread and download this bunny rabbit mod by Skinnet from the modding forums.
    3. Unpack the bunny into {KAG}/Mods/Bunny
    4. Open {KAG}/mods.cfg and add the line Bunny at the bottom of the file
    5. Start your dedicated server
    6. Wait for people to join (it will autodownload the bunny for them)
    7. Spawn bunnies for them with the chat command !bunny

    That’s all, I really hope we see some awesome modded servers in a while.
    Be sure to check “Modded” button in the server browser because by default it filters them out (so the game is noob friendly).



    Changes 890-893:

    [added] automatic mod downloading on join server

    [fixed] coin drop sounds

    [script][added] MapFlags.as for convenient setting of tilemap flags from script

    [fixed] wall run on doors and trap blocks

    [fixed] archer continues to grapple after going through tunnel

    [modified] smoothened the fixed camera very much

    [fixed] bugs with flag base sector not being in the right place

    (doesn't vanish completely any more, but gets much smaller to prevent "flag cases" from being really hard to break)

    [fixed] doors and trap doors wall running

    [fixed] idle server pausing broken

    Oh, God. Do you, guys, play your own game? As archer, maybe?

    I really like the new and improved camera smoothing, makes playing an archer much easier and the mod downloading is icing on an already tasty cake. Now I just need to get my act together and release a playable version of KAA.

    Ok so I can't see the youtube embedding, firefox latest. Bug looks strange, it may some annoying re-implementation of "smart aim" that MM keeps trying to do, I'll look into it now.
    Threaded patcher is on its way soon, just fixing bugs in it and making sure that they're fixed because I really, really don't want to break anyone's autoupdate.

    If it is "smart" it is ugly, believe...

    I reported it on Monday, but no reaction followed, so I decided to write it here.

    This broke the camera settings, now toggling does not work, and camera stays unfixed.

    I dont like the smoothened camera. Is it ok if you made it in the options menu to have the smoothed camera and the originall camera.

    Did you know about antivirus?
    Anyway before downloading a mod - With a virus or not - you must confirm downloading it.

    Apparently we had a issue with that, we're often updating our mod and some of our players saw 'Error while compiling scripts' when people was connecting to it correctly. We have to modify name every update.

    Otherwise it works fine, you can just check the animal workshop on my server.

    McAfee and Avast didn't do shit to help with the issue, so yes I know about antivirus.

    Nice, looks really good! Will be really useful for servers with big mods and for other servers too of course!

    - [fixed] idle server pausing broken
    Thanks, already wondered why my server took so many resources while there were no players.

    No it won't and it won't help a lot (at least I really don't see how).

    Guys, can you change mod system for a little: to store it in random access memory or at least return such thing only for scripts, like it was before
