Official PvP servers one-time Clearance of all old unequipped items (with the exception of blueprints, eatables, notes, and quest items), to ensure fairness after Item Duplication bug exploit. Server admins can enforce this once if they run with this command argument (will only work ONCE on pre-update save games):
Explosions now do +200% damage to dinos and +50% damage to players
Sarco and Turtle now dive/climb in water at properly quick speeds (making full use of their move speed)
Player-hosted servers can now maintain a whitelist of SteamID's who are admin cheat-authorized, and those accounts will automatically be able to use cheats without having to enter enablecheats. When utilizing this feature, no cheat password is utilized.
Compass Engram moved to level 10, & no longer requires Smithy (is hand-crafted)
There is now a dedicated keybind for accessing the whistle wheel, which will soon be expanded with emote animations
Major memory reduction on dedi server (multi-GB reduced)
Player-Hosted Server control of day-cycle length, and relative lengths of Day & Night respectively! Who wants a 24h real-time RP server? ME!!!!!!!
Player-server options for which engrams/blueprints are available on a server, how much they cost, what their level-requirements/pre-reqs are, how much XP is earned & level XP thresholds for players and dinos, and how much damage players & dinos & structures do & their resistances respectively. Your primitive-only worlds are now possible :)
Texture Resolution settings no longer affect Terrain geometry quality
You can now optionally specify administrators for a server by numeric SteamID, so that only certain specific steam users can have access to the admin commands, and these users do not have to enter an admin password
If there are multiple bed/sleeping bag points overlapping on the same area on the respawn UI, upon clicking one you will now get a popup list to choose between them more easily.
