Change Log

Patch 2.5.0

  • Buff: now applies its effect to all Generators in the environment.
  • QoL: now increases the Hearing distance of Repair noises by 8 metres.
  • QoL: now highlights the Aura of any regressing Generator for the entire duration it is regressing (in white).
  • QoL: now highlights the Aura of any regressing Generator that has been interrupted for 8/12/16 seconds (in yellow).

Patch 4.3.0

  • Nerf: a Generator regressing all the way back to 0 % will now trigger the yellow Aura, as if a Survivor had interrupted the Regression.
    • This is due to the fact that a Generator regressing to 0 % technically interrupts the Regression process.
    • This change is an unfortunate side-effect of the standardisation to both Generator Terminology and to the underlying mechanics of effects that affect Generators.

Patch 5.0.0

  • QoL: Generators regressing all the way back to 0 % will no longer trigger the Aura-highlight..

Trivia

  • The default Hearing distance of Generator Repair noises is 20 metres.
  • Surveillance does not require a Generator to be manually damaged by the Killer to activate. In fact, Surveillance will activate with all Perks that cause Generators to start the Regression, like EruptionIconPerks eruptionIconPerks eruptionIconPerks eruption, OppressionIconPerks oppressionIconPerks oppressionIconPerks oppression, Scourge Hook: Pain ResonanceIconPerks scourgeHookPainResonanceIconPerks scourgeHookPainResonanceIconPerks scourgeHookPainResonance and SurgeIconPerks surgeIconPerks surgeIconPerks surge.
