Game Mechanics
 
Poison

Instead of maxing out at a certain point and applying the damage instantly the max poison level is higher than usual.  the more poison you have the faster the time between damage (this caps after a few hundred poison) and the more damage you take each time. you also loose poison faster since damage is based on poison lost. Basically the more poison you have the faster it processes
 
Bursting Weapons
At 1-hex all of the burst has a chance to hit the prime target; at one third of maximum range and beyond only one third of the burst does. The remaining rounds go left or right and the transition is smooth across distance, for example around two thirds of the burst has a chance to hit the prime target at one sixth of maximum range. This spread does not apply to 12 gauge and .223 ammo type weapons.
For each line failed hits are checked against the next nearest critter in the line until a target is hit or there are no targets in the line to check.
Burst damage is reduced to 90% of normal, after DT/DR calculations.
The maximum success chance is 90%, not 95% (to simulate the “streamlined roll” in PnP and balance things)
Bursts get a penalty of -2% to hit per hex from the target.
Miniguns are no longer “Accurate” and get “Rapid Fire”, a new weapon perk that halves the burst accuracy penalty.
Burst criticals no longer work different from other critical calculations, which gave bursts higher than average crits and accuracy. A master crit roll determines whether 50% of the bullets crit and what, if any, special effects from the table are applied. The remaining 50% of bullets check for critical damage only, individually and independent of the master roll.
 
One Hexing is still the most effective damage wise, but somewhat reduced from before. Short range attacks can be almost as devastating. Medium range attacks with good skill can land many more bullets on one target under this system, making them a decent choice. Long range attacks are most affected by the burst penalty and will scatter rounds on other targets. Miniguns in particularly keep to nearly 1-hex effectiveness for a good distance thanks to their new perk but no longer have an accuracy bonus at close range
 
Overdose system
Addictive chems add 50 + 3 x addiction chance overdose points when used. 10 overdose points are healed every time HP regen occurs. At 500 overdose and higher there is a chance of becoming Overdosed when using chems. Overdosed characters take damage over time; Overdosed can be healed with Doctor but this does not reduce overdose points. At 1000 overdose and higher there is a chance of becoming knocked out when using chems. At 1500 overdose and higher there is a chance of dying when using chems. Chem Resistant halves overdose points from addictive chems.
 
Fixes

Fixed some bugs on encounter maps (inert trees, missing cliff wall)
Fixed bugged gas station map
Fixed issues with projectile explosions, animations and ammo consumption. Also throwable explosion problems are now fixed.
Afterburner addiction text fixed
Faction making fixed
Fixed Grab All at Hex for picking up Flint and the graphic.

Afterburner addiction text fixed

Other things
 
Removed armor piercing from basic (red) 12 gauge ammo.
Fast Reload works as intended.
Quick Pockets reduces AP cost for non-reload inventory use actions.
All thrown spears do the same damage as when used in melee.
There is now chance to get Wooden Crate spawn in encounters, what can contain wide range of items and gear.

Hey, gratz on the server. Started 2014 July, finished 2017 July, 3 years of not giving up, that's a feat!

I checked it out. It seems to be more for PVP, but it's a start, maybe they add some more quests with time.

I am amazed by some of the changes you have made in your server. this market idea where you can buy items look especially interesting.

I think you should listen to what Wichura said. It's kinda what fonline in general lacks. A cohesive team united by a charismatic leader with a precise  idea, a project.

Ideas are good in fonline2 especially in the way they handle PvP mechanics (last time i checked 2years ago each bullet had chance to crit), and the way they reduced the world map size wich always annoyed me in the reloaded server.

I have not checked other servers but you can surely find good ideas elsewhere.

Major issue is I absolutly do not see any point at all to make your own server since we all know the community is basically split between reloaded and fonline2 (Unless it has changed).

If you are familiar with reloaded source then why you and your (obviously) talented team of modders didn't join the reloaded team?
In a community that small you really think that more servers with 10 players is the way to go?

I do not know how the developers of this community are feeling toward each others but as always ego problems seems like the answer. looks to me that A who disagree with B's server, leave make his own server. And B is encouraging A to go just to laugh to see how  hard he will fail. 

Here are my thoughts on this project. A waste of talents.
Take it as brutal honesty.

To be honest, I do not believe that Reloaded or FO2 need any more coders... content is generated by mappers/quest writers. Did I miss the added 50 new quest and 10 dungeons in the change log? FOnline development is about having an idea how the system should be and coding it urself, because no one else will do it the way you want it. That is why people don't join already existing teams, instead they start their own little dream.

Every FOnline project is a waste of talents, but some people still like to do it. If the pop splits, it splits.

On the other hand, there are no announcements about hiring coders, mappers, content editors, writers, etc... ;)
