Dump Trucks & Griefing Fellow Players

Dump Trucks & Griefing Fellow Players -

Sometimes players create the most interesting videos about ways to exploit the games we love and other players, cackling evilly in the background while they're at it. A new video has surfaced on YouTube showing precisely why APB: Reloaded devs are right in their determination to 'nerf' the big, bad dump truck. Check it out, especially if you need a laugh on a Monday.

The End of the Grief-Truck Era

In addition to major changes to spawning, upgrades, witnessing and so on for the first version of 1.5.0 - it's also very significant for a VERY specific reason. 1.5.0 will be the death of the grief-truck. Many have rightly pointed out that what causes the griefing is the fact that it's very difficult to tell the Physics system NOT to blow you up, since collisions between car and car are tricky to separate from car and house, or car and pole (and those two cases clearly SHOULD blow you up, presuming you were not being rammed in to the wall or pole using a grief-truck). However - Aphadon dug around in the darkest corners of the code, and put in place code that actually fixes the issue. Now, there are a few strange side effects from this fix (the grief-trucker will BOUNCE you off a wall instead of blowing you up), but it basically makes you NOT blow up when a non-opposing player smashes you into the wall (no such luck when it's an opposing player). How will this fix play out? Well I for one cannot wait to see it in 1.5.0 to see how people react to it!
