C&C: TIBERIUM ALLIANCES PATCH NOTES 15.1
C&C: TIBERIUM ALLIANCES PATCH NOTES 15.1
OVERVIEW


The recent weeks have been busy for our team in moving the development environment to the Envision Entertainment studios, this also explains the extended maintenance window you will have experienced. Since then our team has been working hard to bring you the game news as soon as possible. Below are the first improvements we will bring to the game within this month, whilst the PTE environment with the below changes will go live next week already.


FEATURES & IMPROVEMENTS

Multi-Language Support

Multi-language support now allows players to change their displayed in-game language in the in-game options.

• The in-game options have been reworked and a new function has been added. You are now able to select and change the game language yourself.
• The language setting is saved as the default language for you in each world individually.
• If you do not have set your default language setting, the client uses the language of the website upon login as default.
• This change will affect existing worlds and new worlds alike.


Multi Language Worlds

Coming along with the multi-language support, we have completely reworked the system how we open and release new worlds to you. Due to the ability of multi-language support, we will open worlds spanning whole regions. This change will enable us to open new worlds more frequently, and we aim to launch a new world per region/timezone every 6 - 8 weeks, or when filled up.

• Multi-language servers will be named "Global” in the server selection.
• They are set up for one of the following regions/time zones: Americas, Europe, and Asia/Pacific.
• Multi-language server can be found in the world selection whenever the language filter is set to "All" and will be labeled as “international”

Due to this change, players of all nations have the ability to come together and still play in their preferred native language. We are very excited about this change as it opens up new allies and enemies on the battlefield as well as steady opening of new worlds.


Worldbrowser Region Support

To support the new way of handling worlds and regions we reworked the world browser to accommodate those changes.

The timezone drop down in the server browser has been replaced with a region selector. We will ensure a fresh world is always open per region. Existing worlds are mapped to the regions by time zones. The following time zones are used for each region:

• All: All
• Americas: UTC-9 to UTC-3
• Europe: UTC-2 to UTC+5
• Asia/Pacific: UTC+6 to UTC-10


Public Test Environment

A commitment we want to give and also carry out going forward is that we want to build this game together with you, our players. In the past, it was difficult to react to your feedback quickly enough and we want this to change. We therefore now introduce a public test environment where we deploy updates in advance and test upcoming features or changes together with and alongside you.
Every patch will be tested on the PTE in advance and will give you the ability to give us your feedback.

• The PTE is a public visible test world
• A dedicated forum will be set up in the official C&C: Tiberium Alliances forums to discuss the PTE content.
• New game updates will be deployed on the PTE and announced to the community via the PTE forums.
• The PTE will not always be open to the public, however, you will be notified via various channels when, and how long it will be open.
• Cheats will be available on a case by case basis via a new menu in the options to skip through progress and to help test specific features and content.
• The PTE content and progress may be reset and wiped regularly. The PTE server is not meant for regular game play but to take a look at new features and to provide feedback.
• Achievements earned on the PTE server are not stored.


FIXES & IMPROVEMENTS

• The global Help forum in-game has been removed and now redirects to the official community forums.

• The warning message upon login to the game while in WebGL mode has been removed.

• The collect all packages function is now available at any time and not dependent on research of the MCV.

• The issue with the chat window sometimes disappearing completely if the user minimizes it has been fixed.

These are some very good changes Smile Some should have been applied 2 years ago like the "collect all packages function" but better late then never Big Grin

The topic of new "Multi Language Worlds" does that mean that there will be no longer nationbased servers opening up, for instance no more german or polish worlds? Anyway it looks very interesting and it might work banning out all those forgotten empty worlds Wink

Keep up the good work! Smile

Yes, that´s correct, all Worlds going forward will be "regional" Worlds. We might add some sort of country indication to Alliances to identify which languages they support, like little Flags or so.. Smile

So suppose I am in Germany and don't speak a wink of German, does it mean that the language will change to German by default unless I change it back to English by hand?

Hey man I live in the US and I'm in the same boat money wise! Don't quit the game because you cant spend money on it. A lot of us are not spending money on this game or if we do it's very little money. You can still play and have fun without spending money.

Hey it's just as costly here for us in UK ... it costs £30 for 50k funds for some thats a hefty amount ... there really should be a fixed amount ant that's equal to all .. as why should the UK US Germany and a few others be covering the costs that say the others pay less for ... very very unfair xxx

There won´t be a change to the payment system. The Store will detect from which country you play and you will remain with your prizes as it is right now. Right now, we do have many players who play in other nations worlds, like German people playing on the US world or European worlds. Game World and Shop are two different pair of shoes. Sorry for not making this clear.
