Announcement [Update v53-54] The Epic Patch - Part I

    • [Update v53-54] The Epic Patch - Part I

      IT IS FINALLY HERE.. THE PATCH! (first part of it)

      The reason it took so long is because of the recent event in which one of the developers went rogue, Striker had to re-do everything to make sure they has no access back in, and had to ensure there are no exploits left behind.
      He even re-did the whole GS (every update that included changes in GS was remade).
      In addition to what's written above, his internet was an obstacle like it has always been.

      We didn't really get to include everything we had hoped to include in this patch like some really cool custom content including a whole new huge map (bigger than main map) which has a lot of new zones and places to fight for. The reason we decided to postpone those is because we do not want the patch to take more time. That is why this thread is called "Part I".

      Before we get to listing the content of this patch, we'd like to apologize for the delay, but look at the bright side, there hasn't been a wipe like every other time, since we've worked and obtained ways to edit almost everything. It is true that the team has decreased in size, but it has not decreased in quality! Every member will continue doing his best to serve you.
      That is also why recruitment is open again, if you're a veteran Nexus player your chances are higher.

      - Nirvana
      You need 2 in squad both with Nirvana Palace Key to enter and start the Nirvana trial.

      Notes :
      • The patch is big in size because the map is included in it, it will be patched to your clients but won't be accessible. We will finalize it and activate it in the next patches.
      • We've added 2 EU links (which have been tested by EU players whom confirmed it is beneficial), we'll see how that goes.
      • The pings you see in-game are not accurate, to see your real ping : open task manager -> performance tab -> open resource monitor -> network tab -> TCP Connections list -> read latency next to elementclient.exe.
      • You might experience some lags (EU) while people are patching.
      • v54 : re-uploaded missing models (services were fine).



      Be assured, no matter what it takes, Nexus will remain open with the team doing their best to serve you.
      - Nexus Team.
