MinionWorkz (After-Hourz) Vehicle Pack 2 Implementation Notes for Beta 1 Release.
We request developers wishing to use the Beta 1 files in a level to notify “Slyk” via a PM through the RO forums. This will allow us to inform you when updates are made or preparing to go out. Then we can ensure you receive them and everyone is on a common code base. Not a requirement, but we want to help you have the best map possible. We will also send you the documentation on how to setup an S&D map until it is posted in another thread. It's too large to post in this thread.
Do not modify or decompile any file. If you want something changed, then simply extend the source using a new class and a new *.uc file from the original code. Credit shall be given to the original developer(s) of any component used as a matter of respect. We will release the source code within a few weeks.
Developers please submit all bugs found after checking for them on the “known bugs” list, included in the package to “Teufelhund (DevilDog)” and Slyk via a PM through the RO forums. Suggestions based on historical fact are welcome.
Known Defects and Requested Changes
This is a Beta Release, there are known issues. Below is the list of known defects and requested changes at time of release by vehicle. A number of items have been fixed since the Beta 1 release was compiled. These items will be annotated by, “Fixed, will release in next Beta”. Additional items may be resolved for the next Beta release. The list will be updated as items are added and/or resolved. We hope to issue an updated Beta early next week to address the leaning ZiS-5v truck.
-Guns will randomly display an “on-fire” effect when destroyed.
Russian T-34 Turreted Pillbox
-Lower pillbox height by another 50%. Fixed, will release in next Beta.
-Move the root bone to center of mass. Fixed, will release in next Beta.
-Vulnerability issue with T-34 turret.
-There is a gap where you can see through the turret when the Commander is outside the hatch.
-Add code to flip the KV-2 after a certain roll angle is exceeded. This is a requested change. The vehicle was very top heavy and would roll over when on a steep incline. This is a change request and low priority.
- The engine sound on the Road Block KV-2 is excessively loud.

-The tracks rotate backwards on the interior mesh.
-The Commander’s hatch is floating slightly above the model’s body. Fixed, will release in next Beta.
-The driver’s knee is visible on the underside of the hull. Fixed, will release in next Beta.
-Riders do not appear to be able to connect to the vehicle when a player is in the Commander’s position and the driver is not present.
-Redo the ZiS-3 gun sight to make the reticule lines thinner.
-The vehicle horn is heard by only the driver, not the other players.
-Increase speed of vehicle to 29 KPH. This is for game play. Fixed, will release in next Beta.
-The truck leans to the side while being driven. Fixed, will release in next Beta.
-The front and side windows on the destroyed model are black (could not see through them). Fixed, will release in next Beta.
-The destroyed model must be raised
