Some players and me noticed that vehicles' shield are weaker in MH since v61? Or is that a faux feeling?

Since end of February 2024 I get this warning in log file when a map is loaded:
Failed to load XVMH: Can't find file for package XVMH..
Failed to load "Class XVMH.VehicleMonsterHunt": Can't find file for package XVMH..

I guess you not install XVMH.u on server.
So server load Xvehicles.int, see here line
Preferences=(Caption="Vehicle MonsterHunt",Parent="Game Types",Class=XVMH.VehicleMonsterHunt,Immediate=True)
try load XVMH.VehicleMonsterHunt
And make such errors in the log.
As solution - just upload XVMH.u on server, without add it to any place in configs.

Thanks. Is XVMH.u a server-only file?

It is SP-only file actually. Just stub, for see all MH-XV maps as separate game type for usual Monsterhunt.
However I use single .int file, so server can add warnings like you post if not found described class.
As another solution, you can edit .int file.
For server XVMH not need. I not expect it produce warnings in log if there missed package from int file.

are there any plans for assault support? or mutator? I've been tinkering with trying to get x vehicles to work on a resized version of mazon and it's really fun, but the bots keep shooting vehicles that are not assigned to their teams. the problem with assault is team assignment.

I tried to bypass this by having all vehicles unlocked but bots will attack spawn vehicles when not assigned. also tried assigning vehicles to yellow team so they could be "neutral" and bots attack vehicles and seem more confused, even if they get in the vehicles.

here's both versions if you're interested in checking it out:

Does anyone know what dimensions an opening must have that every kind of vehicle can pass? Don't spend time for deeper investigation, I can try it out.
Wait - isn't it just the size of the collision cylinder?

Bot shoot enemy vehicle for make it burned. It is very good strategy for win. Burned vehicles restart maximally long.
I will look what deal in AS. Possible need there keep in sync vehicle team when teams switched.

Just collision cylinder.
However, keep in mind, any actor collide with geometry not as cylinder, but as box aligned to axes.
It less visible on small actors, but very good visible on big, like vehicles.
See: https://github.com/OldUnreal/UnrealTour ... ssues/1501
Also UT collision code not very well tested before release for huge actors. Only for small one, like actors.
This lead to problems with collisions:
https://github.com/OldUnreal/UnrealTour ... issues/866
And this also can appear in different form. typical for terrain.

My assault mapping knowledge is not great. :ironic: Wouldn't mind some pointers tbh
The bots are not great at defending objectives in order, or not driving places where they should walk.
Are there any vehicle blocking path nodes that could work here? Walk nodes don't seem to be working.
Bots are also not exiting vehicles to press buttons using walk nodes.
Redeemer is also using default UT warhead projectile.

improved version of Mazon:
AS-XV-MazonWIP.unr
created a defender spawn area with teleporters to different parts of the map so it's easier for defenders to get around.
