New PTS build
For those that are interested there is a new build on the public test server, to test the content of the upcoming patch. Here's what's on the PTS according to APC:
Quote:Major Highlight

New Synthrall skin for the Soldier class.
Two new voice packs:
Total Biscuit
Stowaway
Settings for custom servers are persisted across logins.

Weapon/Balance Items

Fixed an issue where the Shocklance would affect energy usage of packs.
When players upgrade a base turret, the turret will now properly upgrade it’s rate of fire.
Fixed an issue where fractal grenades could timeout before they finished fractalling, resulting in a non-damaging explosion.

See the following sub-forum for additional Known Issues on the other maps and the discussions made between the players and the level designers: http://forum.hirezstudios.com/phpbb/viewforum.php?f=356

Additional Items

Shocklance now has a small weapons model.
Fixed positioning of Shocklance on the main menu.
Shocklance is now bannable from a custom server.
Rock bouncing custom physics preset has been changed to be index based. RockBounceIndex is the property 0=full rock bounce, 1=standard rock bounce, 2=no rock bounce
Fixed an issue where returning a flag could prevent grabbing an enemy flag or grabbing an enemy flag could prevent returning your team's flag.
Laser targeter no longer can deploy call-ins during the warmup phase of a match.
Fixed an issue where the passenger from a gravcycle could get launched off at a high speed when exiting.
Fixed an issue where certain types of fog could be disabled in custom .ini settings.

We thank you for your participation during this testing phase and your continued support towards Tribes: Ascend.
You can see the thread here

Rumor is patch will likely be going live sometime next week.

RE: New PTS build
I dont see anything worth testing....Although,

Quote:Settings for custom servers are persisted across logins.

I think this means that all settings are available to all admins.

RE: New PTS build
Ya really it seems like a bunch of hotfixes that don't really require public testing. Probably just an excuse to use the PTS and make sure everyone doesn't uninstall it before the next real content patch is put on there. Still as a general note, I'd rather have a lot of small patches instead of waiting 4 months for a big patch, but that's just one fellow's opinion. Smile
