Patch Notes

Notes iconThe 15.9.1 patch is rolling out to servers at 10AM Eastern on Tuesday September 22nd.

The largest addition this build is the re-introduction of sieges. We will be introducing the siege system in a few phases to properly test the system and to also adjust and fix some other balancing issues related to PvP that will greatly impact the outcome of a siege. Siege Camps will now be able to be built in game and players can place the siege camps. Players will be able to adjust the windows for the 2 combat phases of the siege and participate in the final combat window that would normally either end up the city being defended or lost to the attackers. However, for the first phase of testing in 15.9.1 structures will be able to be damaged, but they cannot be destroyed. This will prevent the attacking nation from being able to win. This restriction will slowly be lifted after sufficient testing is done and proper balance is achieved.

As we move closer to beta the game's social features are also an area which needed improvements. Several steps were made in that direction in this build including the addition of Looking for Group, and Looking For Nation features and filtering in the player finder. There is now an events tab in the Nation Window which allows you to monitor what other players in your nation are doing, including things such as members joining or leaving, bosses being defeated, and epic missions being completed. Many of those events are also tied into the nation reputation system which saw a number of improvements, as well. 

Itemization is always an issue in alpha testing. With mobs and missions not fully itemized it reduces the benefits of combat. This is typically one of the areas that happens later in a games testing cycle, but we've began to place a higher focus on this area. We've begun to add new armor and fitting types which feature particle effects, and other fun gadgets which have a higher "coolness" factor including mind control devices. Tougher mobs and missions are also now capable of dropping ability enhancements, which were previously only obtainable by spending Training Points. 

The mission system has gone through similar itemization steps. There are now more types of very rare mission reward loot. Missions can also specify to have random furniture rewards, typically from non-combat oriented missions. We also adjusted the mission system so that you will no longer receive new job offers if you already have 10 pending job offer emails. It will also trim out non-epic job offers after 15 minutes if they are not accepted. The goal of those changes is to make it easier to reduce the chance that you will be accepting mails from areas you had previously visited but since departed.

Pet types also see a slew of improvements to make it easier to heal, buff, or repair pets, and to make it easier to identify the skill level required to tame a pet. Other additions include AI improvements, boosts to the Fishing minigame, and much more. Don't take our words for it though, you can read the complete build notes below...


Adversarial Camps
 

  • The camps in Ollaseca should be smaller than was previously the case, and can spawn different NPCs types.
  • Adjustments were made to the adversarial camps in Twin Falls. In general they are smaller in size than was previously the case, and the mobs were also adjusted.


AI
 

  • Improved NPC pathfinding in prediction in cases where an NPC is exiting and entering your spatial range. This should solve some issues with NPCs pathing underground.
  • NPCs will now babble half as often as before.


Auctions and Work Orders
 

  • When fulfilling a work order, if the entire stack of the slotted item is used, its icon will now properly disappear. Similarly, if the item is otherwise removed from the bank or inventory, its icon will be removed from the work order fulfillment slot.
  • Fixed an issue where blueprints were not searchable by name after a server reset. All blueprints, new and old, should now be searchable.
  • For failed auctions, added the the original posted bid and buyout unit prices, to the email message sent to the auction owner.
  • Component and Filter drop down lists, on the Auction Search and Work Order windows, are now sorted alphabetically.


Audio

  • NPCs now support different types of hit landed sounds for players based on their attack type.
  • Introduced a range of new combat oriented sound effects.
  • Interactive Music Mode now supports G# notes. This has shifted over the A note by one hotkey.
  • Leaping sounds will now play less often, instead of every time you jump.
  • Improved the interactive music system's guitar sounds.


Combat
 

  • If an Action Mode setting exists for a weapon but all of its options are empty, it will now fall back to the automatic selection. We found that in some cases users could have empty selection trees as this would cause them to fire at something and repeatedly miss until editing their action mode settings to fix it. It will now do that automatically.
  • Clamped the Energy Recharge Timer to 1.25 seconds.
  • Reduced the energy and endurance cost requirements when dual wielding.
  • Line of Sight will now be enforced when directly using action keys while in action mode.
  • When a target who has been confused or under a form of mind control breaks free of their ailment they, and others who they may have attacked will display their anger at the player who afflicted them.
  • Improved mind control target selection strategies to ensure that groupmates or pets are not attacked.
  • Improved the auto-aim correction when in action mode by both increasing the radius and allowing for additional rays to be cast in the event that no target is found.
  • A text banner is now displayed after an in-combat gear swap is completed.
  • Reverted the shield reset code back to the way it was before so it would reset on each hit, this also was causing issues with the regen not kicking in on occasion as it was randomly firing.


Engagements
 

  • Added new engagement opportunities to the following areas: Twin Hills, the Bald Forest, Azure Taiga, Laredo Lagoon, and O'Doyle Meadow.
  • Opposing players are now treated as an optional goal in the Fort Pharynx engagements. You will receive bounties and credit for them as before, but in the event that no opposing players are in the area you can still succeed the protection goals.
  • Created a new Retrieving Cannisters engagement which can take place in numerous locations throughout the world. In this engagement you come across a panicked salesman who lost his cargo when he was caught in a Rhinoc stampede. He will offer rewards for players for retrieving the cannisters, and at the end of the engagement the players with the largest number of contributions will receive additional rewards.
  • Engagements can now award fittings as rewards for top performers.
  • Improved loot tables of many engagements.
  • Improved support for tick based actions in engagements.
  • Reduced the frequency at which the Raid on the Hill engagement occurs.
  • With PAX now behind us, we've slowed down the rate at which the Griefclaw Bluffs PvP engagement respawns. It still spawns relatively quickly, but not as quickly as before.
  • Numerous changes were made to the Thicket Overwatch engagements. The terrorists are now easier to defeat and pathing has been altered to occur in waves, and in less numbers.


Graphics
 

  • Introduced new swarming FX which can be found on some abilities as well as the new Swarm Pod item.
  • Added numerous new particle FX designed to be attached to rare fittings or pieces of armor.
  • Retextured some of the Fort Hudson graphics set and moved it over to a texture atlas for efficiency.
  • Retextured some water and fuel tank props models and moved them over to a texture atlas for efficiency.

  • Introduced a number of new ability and effect icons.


Housing
 

  • Skill Imprint Stations and Crafting stations are now listed under Tech to keep all of the interactive structures together.
  • Housing plots now have their own category (Housing Plots). They were in control center earlier.


Inquiries
 

  • You can now hear news of the Retrieving Cannisters engagement through inquiries from throughout the world.
  • Day Break Acres (Jenu): If inquired, Sergeant Vallah Xenaria will flirt with you and tell you about her base.


Items and Fittings
 

  • Improved the damage of flame throwers at close range.
  • All shockguns should now deal electrical damage rather than energy based damage by default. Some of the shells were erroneously dealing energy damage previously.
  • Added support for fittings to be restricted to a specific weapon type rather than a generic one. Meaning we can now have Shockgun specific fittings, for example. This level of filtering was previously only available for ability enhancements, where normal fittings could only be restricted by a generic type (Ranged, Melee, etc).
  • Introduced numerous new rare armor pieces with particle effects. These can currently be obtained as rare loot from boss mobs or epic missions.
  • Introduced new Swarm Pods which are a rare drop from certain species. When broken these pods will unleash a swarm of insects which can debuff and inflict damage to a nearby target. This will consume the pod.
  • Introduced new rare Shockgun fittings: EMP Overload. These fittings can be activated to disable a robotic opponent for up to 15 seconds. This will prevent the robot from attacking, but any damage done to it can jar it out of the effect.
  • Introduced several new variations of rare mind control devices. These fittings socket into head slots, and in some case grant a willpower bonuses. Their true strength lies in a charged effect which can be activated which can control the minds of specific types of NPCs or specific difficulty ranks of NPCs.
  • Introduced a new ability enhancement: Shockgun Energy Converters. These enhancements can fit into most shockgun abilities and will convert their damage from electro-magnetic to energy based. This will increase the damage output against living beings, while reducing it against robotics and making it susceptible to energy shielding. It will increase the potency of shockguns against most opponent types, however. You can purchase these enhancements from Ability Trainers in cities for training points.
  • Introduced new Advanced Movement Accelerator fittings. These can only fit into boots, and will increase your movement speed. In addition to this they feature a new particle effect.
  • Introduced a potent new Riteli Sniper Rifle. These rifles feature a laser targeting particle and are a very rare loot.
  • Introduced a new Tranquilizing Darts fitting that can be placed into ranged weapons. This fitting can be activated to launch a tranquilizing dart at your target. These darts can be used for crowd control, but each fitting only comes with a total of 10 darts.
  • Introduced new Emergency Shielding fittings. These fittings can only fit inside of chest armor pieces and grant 10 charges of Emergency Shielding. This effect absorbs a high amount of damage for a short period of time, and also provides a damage shield which reflects electro-magnetic damage back on your attackers.
  • Introduced new sgACC Stimulator implants. These implants improve a characters Courage, making them less susceptible to intimidation or discouraging effects.
  • Added new rare and random loot to several species which had none or which had little previously.
  • Added new super rare loot which can be stolen or pick pocketed.
  • Added a particle effect to Charged Reinforcement fittings.
  • Introduced additional items into the mob loot tables for most humanoid species.
  • Significantly reduced the armor factor of the Pink Shower Cap, but increased the durability of the item. The incredibly high armor value was causing issues with armor type calculations.
  • Reduced the value of Moissanite, Sodium Bicarbonate, and Myxini Gel. Increased Sodium Bicarbonate produced per craft to 2, up from 1.
  • Reduced the base price of anthracite, to match the value of other base minerals from Sarnium nodes.


Minigames
 

  • Adjusted the fishing Minigame so that it trophy fish are a little more common. This was done by increasing the skill bonus and skill bonus cap, as well as increasing the bonus from an area being well stocked with fish. High fishing skill and proper use of lures is still required, however.
  • Computer terminals in Fort Bondsteel can now initiate hacking minigames.
  • Slightly increased the chances of catching Electrophorus in the Fishing Minigame.

  • Added 12 new profession based titles.
  • You can now have up to 30 friends and 30 enemies.
