Added VO Logic and Audio Layer to CMP.
Updated set dressing and added destruction to ghost town building.
Updated set dressing for temple area.
Updating Medical facility POI.
Updated the minimap.
Terrain materials now added and a shaping pass across the map – river now is wide enough for RHIB’s on the Temple side.
Adjusting scattermesh (tiny random objects like stones etc) and deleting duplicated water.
High Frequency server Updates
Fixed the sudden player death bug, getting thrown into walls etc when walking up small curbs / over other objects.

Suppression polish pass on the effect. Is now much less intrusive – but still very readable.
