Sandswept Studios Patch DETOUR

Sandswept Studios have released a large update this past Friday, bringing DETOUR to version 1.1. This should fix a TON of issues players have been having, with lots more on the way.

DETOUR v1.1 Patch Notes

- Trucks no longer act strangely in multiplayer games. This is a very large fix and should smooth over the entire multiplayer experience.
- Random/Rare crashes some users were experiencing should no longer happen.
- Numpad keys should now work in text chat.
- Choose Team button now shows up properly in lobby when host has selected a team gametype.
- Sound should no longer default to 0, and sound preferences should maintain properly.
- Truck bubble cooldown increased from 18 seconds to 30 seconds.
- Nail cooldown increased from 15 seconds to 26 seconds.
- Holding backspace key now properly deletes characters in text chat.
- Rare error where player would be in the wrong factory on a Singleplayer Challenge.
- Graphics option added for “Use Hardware Mouse”, for players experiencing sluggish mouse cursor movement in the menus and game.
- Forest now has the proper item description in map editor.
- Player is now returned to Challenges menu after a challenge is completed.
