Good job Aubrey!
 
In my limited time playing, I found no bugs, and nothing wrong.
 
My only personal complaint is that GTR's worlds, and Seb's Mars Ruins are very very laggy,
 
Other than that, the version is great Aubrey!

Looking good, but 2 problems
1: It is not compatible with Chrome, unlike all the other versions.  (a similar problem occured at the release of 2.12)
2: This might be fixed by now, but the lava is gray.

There is about a thousand bugs in this version!
1. my jet is randomly fireing red when i'm not faceing anyone and when i willingly fire it's green
2. the connection is so slow
3. i can never get a rendering quality higher than "fast"
4. evry one is active... then they get delayed... than no responce... than the get active again and the cycle starts again
5. i have seen so many tanks "Blow up"
6. when im a tank and fall off the planet i get back on the starting spot and shot in any direction... over... and over...
7. when lazer hits are on "rematerize" and i shooot the quarry the quarry stays the quarry and goes back to the starting point
 
What is wrong with this version?

I have a new computer so Unity works, but on this version it will be stuck on the "Connecting to Game..." screen. What should I do?

Excellent Version! I particularly like the interactive objects in the new maps. Also, the ice having weak spots that can be driven through is particularly fun. I am also glad that the No Connection problem seems to finally be solved.

Oh!! very good!! one problem besides the laging.
 
Although the wheels do look good, i like the older ones better.  they are more original.  You can change the name, the worlds, the gameplay, but not the buggy.

1.  Good Job Aubrey, love the new version.
 
2. I was just in a game with GTR and in his Ice World on the download Mac version, and the app just turned off without warning.  It happened before that when I tried to join a game, but I thought it was a fluke.

The windows application download doesn't work for me.
I am running Windows 7.
Is it not compatible, or is it something else?
EDIT:  It is the direct download that I am talking about, haven't tried the torrent download.
EDIT:  Thanks for making it work with Chrome.

Game crashed completely randomly. Wasn't pressing a button or anything. Just cruising in my hover craft and it shut down. Did have a pop up "Safari quit unexpectedly" message like normal either.
 
Edit: Some areas in the Desert Rock map have parts of the river missing. It appears to just cut off and disapears in some areas, although it still acts like water even thought it looks like air. Much like in Unity Island at the edge of the world where it appears that the waters ends, but it actually goes on forever. Despite this, i predict i will be spending much time in this map :)

On application and Firefox;
*Despite my high FPS (100), every 2.2 map including Freestyle has lag, screen freeze and jerky vehicle movement even in Simple.
*Joining players name badges still shoot up into the air sometimes in dedicated servers.
*Tested 2.0 and can run Fantastic in browser no prob.  I suggest a gigantic new game pointer sign when starting older versions. Still people there without knowledge of new versions.
Very hard to play any 2.2 map in any quality setting right now.  :(

Very interesting Kruncher!
I'm sorry to hear about the 2.2 freezing issue you are experiencing - it has been the best performing version for me in all the tests I have run.
What OS and graphics card do you have?
 
Joining players shoot up into the air because they are still initializing, and haven't begun transferring their positional data yet. I'll add an override to make them invisible when this is happening.

Aubrey, latest version made no improvement. My Firefox screen froze then I got my first notice ever to restart my computer. I did a PRAM reset and decided not to go back for a while.
My wireless mouse doesn't like the native app or browser versions and all players are having troubles.
It feels like 2.2 is a beta version that's testing us rather than the other way around.  :)

I have an error:  I just got a new laptop (YAY!) and I joined Tigerstorm's server, but he had already left by the time the Whirld finished loading.  Tiger joined again, and I said "Hi! Guess what?".  A little while later, Tiger said "GA?" and left.  Here's a pic of what happened when he rejoined a second time.

Aubrey, before the update to 2.2, this bug was not existent, now it is.
 
  • Names stick on the game list when you mouse over a game, an example would be that your name still showed up as being in our game some 30 minutes after you left.

This would be really cool:
Lasers are really hot in real life.  So, why not a steam effect when it hits lava or water?  It would only be enabled on beautiful or fantastic settings, and only by choice.

Aubrey,
 
I no longer have a server list in any version, nor a player counter on the home page.
I am not sure if this is a PC problem, or a Mars problem at the moment.
 
*Update* - It has been almost a solid 10 Hours since I comment about this,
Is nobody besides kruncher suffering from this?

The same thing happened to me.
NO ONE seems to be on, but that is impossible, because now that 2.2 is the main version, there is always someone on.
There is no one on ANY version.  I thought it was a problem on my end, but apparently not.

I cannot get my mind off of the whirld update... Please soon!
 
 
And the new mars explorer is working very well, I love the new spawn... Networking not giving me a bit of issues, except when I changed the RPC mode, to reduce lag in Seb's world.
 
Sadly the World Creator is on hold, due to it's incredible reliance on the whirld system, please hurry with getting an update out.

Allright folks!
 
A new version has just been uploaded. If you play via your web browser, you shouldn't have anything to worry about (though you can clear your cache if you want to ensure you are on the very latest and greatest).
 
If you are playing via a downloadable version, please redownload it.
 
This update should greatly improve stability, and may also help to prevent the "visual freezing" experienced by Kruncher and others.
 
-Aubrey
 
P.S. Yes, the dedicated server recently went down - very sorry about that. The entire thing froze, and I had to hard reset it. I hate windows :)

I'm sorry to report that:
* In Firefox (cache cleared and page refreshed) my screen still freezes.
* I now have tons of fog in every game, even where others report no fog.
* I can't adjust visibility when hosting.
Also:
* Downloaded Mac application is empty.
* Safari is still missing my crosshairs, brake and sniper laser in any game version.

Aubrey,
 
The entire server list is down yet again, and has been for over 24 hours now.
No clue as to what is wrong, nor as to why the server list itself is crashing.
 
But it is imperative, that this gets fixed,
can't have a game to fix if the game itself can not be played as multi-player.
