Yes - you can finally drive the tanks found around PEI and Washington! On PEI you can find a tank at Federation Bridge, or at the destroyed tunnels on Washington. If you manage to loot some tank shells you can use the tank's turret, but keep an eye out, as you're very exposed in the gunner's seat! Tank missiles are similar to rockets, but travel faster and drop less. The new turret system is also very generic for modders, so features like rear-facing guns on a biplane or missiles on an attack helicopter are possible.

Added option for inbound voice volume gain.
Added icon when other player is talking.
Improved cloth buildables to be colorable with flares.
Improved shadow draw distance to make objects pop more, but character is wider.
Scope sway, bullet drop and bullet travel time have been added! You can steady your scope by holding your sprint key. Dedicated snipers now have slightly longer range with a faster muzzle velocity than all other weapons, and their stats have been adjusted to prevent quickscoping while allowing you to track the bullet through the air to adjust for drop.
Suppressors slightly decrease muzzle velocity causing a bit more bullet drop, but even more so with internally suppressed weapons. By default all guns will use the default ballistic values with Ballistic_Travel set to 10.0, Ballistic_Steps as Range / 10.0 rounded up and a Ballistic_Drop of 0.002.
Zombies in deadzones now explode in a radioactive mess when killed! This means you need range on these zombies, so melee combat isn't an option. The intention is that any future...
You can now defend your base while offline! The sentry turret will keep a watchful eye out as long as it receives power and ammunition, and if it spots a hostile player or zombie it will begin peppering them with gunfire. It will not shoot people in your group or handcuffed survivors, and will suspiciously track enemies with their hands up.
Similarly to the weapon rack you can mount a firearm in the turret's clamp to arm it. This means the turret is more effective with better weaponry, and makes the light machine guns more useful. Keep in mind that the turret cannot reload on its own, so it can be a good idea to routinely check up on your defenses and refill ammo when necessary.
The sentry does have its drawbacks however: it has a lower firerate and accuracy than a human survivor, and will only scan a short area in its field of view allowing bandits to sneak up behind it. Likely the game balance will still need some adjustments, for example being able to place it on...
