Patch Notes for December 1, 2011
Tribes Closed Beta Version 0.1.585.0
Server downtime: The Tribes Servers are expected to be down for several hours on THURSDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2011 while the patch is deployed. Watch the Server Status in Hi-Command for latest availability information.
Major Highlights since Version 0.1.562

The Team Deathmatch gametype is now available for play on two maps (Drydock Night and Crossfire). Upon the first death in the match, a flag will spawn. Your team earns a bonus for each kill made while the team holds the flag.
Added a “First Win of the Day” Challenge that rewards additional XP and tokens upon your first victory in a day. The "day" begins at 09:00 UTC time.
Added the “Orbital Strike” call-in (default bound to "3"). It is similar to the Tactical Strike, with a much wider radius and higher credit cost.
Reduced the token amounts required to unlock classes.
Settings: “Reduce Weapon Size” option has been added along with many others, including an option to disable help messages and an option to disable framerate smoothing.
Matchmaking: Very basic match-making segmentation to help lower ranked players play with lower-ranked players.
Fixed a number of bugs that caused sudden speed drops when skiing or jetting uphill. Other issues may remain. Please report as you find them.
By default, objective icons for all major elements on a map (generators, vehicle stations, equipment stations, etc) are now shown when you first enter a map. Hit "O" to turn off the markers.
