All servers will come down at 6:00 AM PDT (3:00 PM CEST) for Game Update 14.
Downtime Start:6 AM on Monday morning
Downtime ETA:90 minutes GU14 Patch Notes General Updates SOE Player Studio In case you hadn’t heard, PlanetSide 2 now supports SOE Player Studio submissions! This means that players can submit art assets for use in game and if we end up using them, we share 40% of the net sales of that item with the player that created it. Our first batch of player made items go live in this update!
For all the specifics and details about the program and how you can participate check out the Player Studio webpage here:https://www.planetside2.com/player-studio Default Keybind Changes The following keybinds have changed in the default mappings. This affects new players and players who reset their keybinds to default.
defaultmappings have changed
Vehicle Headlights: This functionality had two keybinds. The extra binding to “L” has been removed. The “G” is still bound to headlights.
Open Friends Page:
I -> L(Friends
Un-deploy). This key was previously not used.
Instant Action Toggle:
These changes are to improve accessibility of Instant Action and Redeploy, particularly for new players who may find the former Home and Delete keys awkward and forgettable. Instant Action and Redeploy are now next to each other and within easy reach. The Friends List is still next to other social keys like outfit and squad page hotkeys. Players who are organizing other players and instructing them to redeploy or use instant action should be aware that newer players may not have the same keybindings for those toggles as they do.
Players coming from GU13 should see no change in their keybinds. Players who played Pre-GU13 but did not play during GU13 may find that their Instant Action key is no longer bound. This can be corrected by setting the Instant Action toggle to whichever key the player wishes in the keybinding settings.
