HWBOT R5 planning and development started

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

As you might have read in another forum topic, we have begun our planning and development for HWBOT R5. With Dennis having joined the HWBOT team, we can increase the development pace quite a bit. Therefore, we have also changed the way we approach major releases. R5 is, in contrary to R4 which launched as finished product, a work-in-progress with features being released when ready. The full-blown R5 can thus only be experience in a couple months time. At this point in the development stage we are close to release the first new R5 features. In this thread, we will keep track of the released features as well as announce the ones that are planned for R5. We have no pinned down exactly what will be included in R5, so we're still adding and removing ideas from the backlog.

Is the fundamental engine of HWB the same? Same hardware points, same 20 hardware + 15 global + competition (+WR) for the league ranking?

Apart from the UGP/GTPP exotic class fix, we only plan a complete make-over for the Pro OC League. All the other HWBoint-related stuff (rankings, points, leagues) will see no change :)

I hope R5 is deployed better than R4, I just had the shivers come over me as I read the title...

 

What about a Team Hardware Library to compliment a users hardware library?

R5 is just "R4.1", so to speak. R4 was the biggest upgrade we've seen so far, so there really shouldn't be that many bugs this time around.

 

Ehr, no. R5 = R5.

Apoligies for the delay in updates. V5.8.0 and V5.9.0 have been closed but are not yet in production. Once it's in production, I will make another news post with the new features.

 

Benchmark record timeline anyone? :D

 

V5.10.0 finally has the mobile benching rankings included. It's going to be a hard nut to crack, but hopefuly you'll like it :)
