An update is happening for H1Z1: Just Survive at 1AM PT on April 26th with an expected downtime of up to
6 8 hours.
The patch itself is very small but includes some critical changes that could not be implemented without a wipe, along with those there is also the launch of the Outlands Crate, the first unique crate for H1Z1: Just Survive.
Full patch notes are yet top be posted but here are some of the key points this update will include:
- A drastic change to the functionality of the Metal Gate, from now on if a gate passes through any other object while in motion it will be destroyed, this change puts a much-needed end to exploits such as placing Large Shelters through open gates and then closing the gate.
- Recursive destruction has been enabled which means no more floating structures, for example if a structure underneath an Upper Level Shelter is destroyed then the upper shelter will be destroyed and any containers inside will also be destropyed and the items spilled out.
- Glitching inside of Wrecked Vans has been fixed.
- Ethanol will no longer float.
