We’ve just released a small maintenance patch which is now live on Steam. This patch is intended to address some issues that cropped up after the release of 244 as well as make some final adjustments in preparation for the NSL Invitational Grand Final on Friday.

Fixed crash due to race condition while sorting data.
Moving Drifters no longer remain cloaked by Shades.
Dead Hives no longer continue to heal nearby Aliens.
Bone Wall burst sound now audible for Alien Commander.

Improvement

Added current map name to the top of the scoreboard UI.
Switched scoreboard font back to Arial font.

Using knobs to modify texture mapping values no longer generates ton of undo steps.

Tram

Cleared up some of the debris around Platform RT area, added route for Skulk on south side Platform area.
