V1.93

Return to Updates

Outlaw Sectors Changes

  • Outlaw Sectors Rampant Militias can now be enabled/disabled from the game options screen without disabling Smuggling and Pirate Turf.
  • Outlaw Sectors Rampant Militia now spawn as the faction of the local controlling faction. If none exists, they default to TEC to match the desired lore that this is TEC territory.
  • Outlaw Sectors Rampant Militias faction can now be Random from a list of options or attempt to match the local controlling faction.
  • Default militia and Outlaw Sectors Rampant Militia now consider structure ownership in addition to planet > ship > random militia player when deciding their local controlling faction.
  • Improved rendering and placement of NPC icons (e.g. Outlaw Sectors Rampant Militia units)
  • Improved the error game event when you try to give move or attack orders to uncontrollable units (e.g. Outlaw Sectors Rampant Militia units).
  • Fixed bug where players could control the squads/fighters of Outlaw Sectors Rampant Militia carrier units.
  • Fixed NPC ships not always spawning in formation around a factory at the start of a match.
  • Fixed NPC ships not always traveling or arriving in formation when spawned in hyperspace enroute to a planet.
  • Fixed NPC ships not arriving on the same plane as the gravity well of the target planet when spawned in hyperspace enroute to a planet.

Updates to Base Game

Gameplay

  • Added new game option to enable/disable superweapons.
  • Added new game option to enable/disable Ai surrendering.
  • Rebalanced Corvettes:
    • Increased ExperiencePointsForDestroying to be in line with its own slot count and relative to other combat frigates.
    • Decreased DamagePercentBonus:CORVETTE:CapitalShip: they aren't intended as anti-capitalship; in fact many capitalships were intended to be anti-corvettes (e.g. to help protect titans).
    • Decreased DamagePercentBonus:CORVETTE:Heavy: flak is intended to be the 'hardest' counter to corvettes, yet corvettes were too effective against them (partially due to firing angles and mobility but also due to this value).
    • Decreased DamagePercentBonus:CORVETTE:Module: corvettes were too effective at raiding structures en masse.
  • Added autocast function to squad building. Right click the squad management button to have the Ai automatically fill the unit's hangars.
  • Superweapon autocast is now disabled by default.
  • Envoy's Goodwill changed to only target Minor Faction planets. The passive bonus to relationship improvement has been refactored into an intrinsic property of Envoy frigates and is now rendered in their frigate tooltip.

Fixes

  • Fixed templates for dead asteroid and ship graveyard to support players potentially starting there.
  • Fixed Titans not being positioned correctly near their factory when built.
  • Fixed AntimatterRestoration buffModifier from being applied twice to antimatter regained through regeneration.
  • Fixed plasma storm not affecting hangars (or any structures).
  • Fixed hangars not auto launching fighters if they were autodocked.
  • Fixed the infamous "Dark Space" bug where units would drop out of hyperspace between planets and take forever to arrive (and cause other units to chase them into the abyss).
  • Fixed some fog-of-war exploits.
  • Culture:
    • Ships and structures that generate culture now properly benefit from CultureSpread and CultureSpreadModifier buffEntityModifiers from buffs on themselves instead of only from buffs on the orbitbody.
    • BuffEntityModifierType::CultureSpreadRateForOwner now only applies to the player that owns the planet, and is now applied in the correct place along with the other multiplicative effects.
    • Fixed BuffEntityModifierType::CultureSpreadModifier from overriding the culture value rather than being applied multiplicatively at the orbitbody level.
    • Fix BuffEntityModifierType::EnemyCultureSpread not being applied unless BuffEntityModifierType::CultureSpread had a non-zero value as well (i.e. they now have no dependency on each other).
    • CultureRepel now supports new additive and scalar BuffEntityModifiers.
    • Fixed ResearchFloatModifierType::CapitalShipCultureProtectRateAdjustment incorrectly applying to titans and starbases as well.
    • Net negative modifiers from planet upgrades now calculate their effect correctly.
    • Culture spread buff modifier now displays a value in tooltips.

AI

  • Improved Ai credit/metal/crystal management.
  • Fixed bug where Ai wouldn't build any more ships even with sufficient resources and capacity.
