The weapon range problem is a bug that I'm just now testing the fix for. The
game was measuring the ranges in a different scale than tiles, but I put in the
numbers meaning for them to be measured in tiles. So stupid mistake on my
The sluggishness is a result of the extra 100 zombies in the map. I'm working
on some ways to correct that, but it seems somewhere between 50 and 150 several
people's computers reached a point with a noticeable difference in performance.
For me, I noticed it only when I had 200 zombies which is why I kept it at 150
for the update release. I'm fairly certain I can get performance back up to
where it was, or perhaps even better, I just need a little time.
The difficulty is something that was hard to balance without real people
populating the server. As people play over the next day or two, I'll get a
much better idea of how to tweak things. A multiplayer map that's overly hard
for 1 person becomes super easy when you have a dozen armed players mowing down
the undead. This means I'll have to figure out the new normal and try to make
adjustments to match it.
