VOICE OVER IP

CAG_ChattingAnother thing we've been working on recently is improving our VOIP (Voice Chat) system. Starting in patch 18 players can hold "V" to talk to nearby players just like before, except with the added bonus of it actually working!  Voice quality has been improved significantly, and several issues plaguing the previous implementation have been ironed out.  Sorry friends, no more "ghost whispers" telling you one another's FoF codes ;).  We've added a few more nicities as well like icons over player's heads when speaking, and broadcast HUD elements. 

Till next time on BitBog, EXPLORE BUILD DANCE SURVIVE.

Weekly Updates on the development of GRAV, we will start posting regularly on what we've been up to.

LATEST FEATURES TRAILER

Last week we put together a short sizzle reel of the many updates and features that have been added to GRAV over the last few patches.

NEW WORLDS

Several new planets have been added to GRAV's current universe, one in particular is rather unique, the Exo Planet Desert World.

A fast vehicle is essential to traveling the long distances between desert oases. Players exploring this world will be rewarded with new crafting materials such as Sun Stone which can be used to make Desert Type Armors and Weapons.Desert_Armor Desert_Rifle

 

NEW GEAR  

Exploring Moons in GRAV is one of the ways to aquire the Crafting Element Plasma with plasma you can create Plasma Type Armor and weapons and soon the Plasma Shield.

NEW FRONTIER BASES

Recently we have also added base building with low level materials, wood and a few fossils is all that is needed to make a Frontier Base in GRAV.  Rustic and lovely yet kind of temporary bases for the masses, like a starter home with a starter marriage built in.

Getting Close to the GRAV Moons

We have been teasing the screenshots of some of the GRAV moons while they have been developing. GRAV's Stargate system that gives you access to these celestial bodies, and the new features they contain, will be released SOON. We are still doing some needed internal testing of these features before we send out to GRAV's Early Access players. Until then we will continue to release the screenshots to show how they are coming along. We hope you enjoy them!

GRAV – Eager Beaver’s Campfire Tests

We continue to fix, improve and add things to GRAV and it has been a blast for us with the outstanding support from the fans. As an example of such support we have an experimental server out there where we invite members of the GRAV community to come in and help us test the latest and greatest features and improvements. Last night we had about 20 people join in and we not only retrieved a lot of excellent data but also had a lot of fun doing it. At one time we had about 12-15 people all dancing around the camp fires having a good time. Even our MR. VENDROID came over and started to rock out. It was awesome.
