I am still unable to post a video about electrics because of slow mobile internet. Shame, because there is so much new stuff one video will probably not suffice. Even batteries got a slight makeover :-)
If you are following me on Twitter, you know that there are two new fish in 1.23. Here they are:
Meet sea bass and freshwater bass
They are bass, and they are real delicatessen! As 1.23 generally aims to make survival subtly more difficult, sharks and piranhas are no longer edible. Instead, you have to search for bass (or rays, or orcas — if you dare).
Other subtle changes (all announced on Twitter some time ago) is reduction of melee hit range from ridiculous 5 meters to a more sensible 2 meters. The frequency of melee attacks has also been reduced from 2 per second to 1.5 per second. All that makes hand combat more risky without a good weapon.
However, all the above are peanuts compared to rating system, increased visibility range and new electrics.
Not far off now.
