PTU Patch Notes For 2.6.1 Released

This patch is primarily dedicated to bug fixes, targeting Star Marine and Arena Commander in particular. However we also some quality of life improvements for the game, updates to Spectator Mode and new implementations to our ongoing network code updates.

Serialized Variables replaces some of the original aspects of CryEngine for handling data (aspects and class members) previously serialized by CryEngine NetSerialize calls. In simpler terms, it's a much more lightweight means for handling update messaging on the network, with reduced risk of updates being lost in caching or other processes - and reducing lag.

Strictly Ordered Network Messaging moves the game away from CryNetwork client-server handling of networked objects, over to our new token system with a strict priority system for managing messaging between client and server nodes.

Mega Map allows for much quicker loading time when switching between maps.
In this initial release it will only be enabled for single player maps (Hangars and single-player Arena Commander), but we will be expanding this to include multiplayer maps in a future release.
Multi-Region Servers We now have servers available in the US, Europe and Australia!
You can choose what region you would like to connect to via an optional drop-down, when connecting to any multiplayer instance.
Selecting "All" will currently default to the US servers, but that will change as we build and improve on the functionality of our region support.
