* Ancalagon (Black Nightfury) now has 12 million shieldbank, down from 20 (per phase). 2 of the guards he spawns during the fight now have 3 million shieldbank, down from 5. This change was made because we’ve noticed that the fight is fairly dull and would often take a very long time to complete, especially since we changed the way the Sniper Analyzer can be used.
* Timotheus the Red now has 10 million shieldbank, up from 3 (per phase). 2 of the guards he spawns during the fight now have 1.5 million shields, up from 500k, another 2 have 3 million shields, up from 1 million. This change was made because we’ve noticed that when Timotheus spawns and is found it takes very little time for player to kill him because they completely ignore the boss fight mechanics and just burst Timotheus down ASAP. This beef in bank will hopefully make player follow the proper fight mechanics and with it, buy some time for other contenders to reach the location and fight over the kill.
* Decreased the shieldbank of the Bana King by 15%. This change was made because Burst weapons have had nerfs, which indirectly made this boss harder to kill.
* Fixed Hermes boss from Ares ship to Hermes ship.
* Added self destructors to the fraternity/equality ai
* Decreased Armada Ambrosia drone range -30%, damage -50%, shield -110%, increases within shield recharge +20%, energy recharge +30%, transference power +20%, transference efficiency +20%, electric tempering -10%.
* Reduced Undead Jey’s resistance, should be much quicker to kill.
* The Zebu Masuta is now Radd-exable.
* Removed scoops from Mira AI.
* Added commodity crates to Perilous Perilous Space dungeon drops.

New items
* Added new t19 ship blueprints to Absolution, Beta Antares, and Sol.
* Added player indicator holoprojector to The Junkyard.
* Added to bruteforce drop Hybridized Demon Expansion or Ultimate Demon Expansion at an extreme low chance.

* Untanglers (often known as grav disruptors) are now using a balance sheet and had their stats re-balanced accordingly.
* Added cooldowns and equip conflicts to multiple tweaks
* Built items (such as extension Ys) can no longer be pawned to ai bases.
* Lancer missile had their launch ranges increased.

* Increased the cooldown of the Power Doughnut tweak.

* Changed the Resistant to need 6000 charge required, charge rate 100 on the Resistance.
* Changed “Slave Deathblossom” to “Bot Deathblossom”.
* The Delquadrikamdon has received a rework, with an offensive and defensive form. Its blueprint requirements have also been changed so that the build cost requires less raw credits
* Fixed an exploit where ship tech upgrades could be equipped on slaves while they were undocking (and bypass ship slot limits)
* Fixed typo’s in Zaphragi and Jungle Communique.
* Added platform and defender bps to present they make 5 drones within their descriptions.

Wormhole Changes
* Created a new wormhole type that will be locked whenever there is an AI ship, drone, or solar body in front of it, for use in new content.
* Wormholes will now briefly pulse in size whenever anyone jumps in or out of them.
* Wormholes will now play sounds whenever anyone jumps in or out of them in your galaxy, rather than just hearing yourself only jump in and out.
* Added wormhole lock and unlock sounds

Misc Changes
* Normalised the volume on all sounds.
* Replaced the sun in Fortress with a eye that looks at you in top down mode.
* Fuzz aura now lasts one minute and is far more crippling in combat without being annoying outside of it.
* Added new missile sounds.
* Added new sounds to Bana Queen, Anaconda and GSA’s (Face Hugger), Temple Grounds.
* Updated Vulcanite sounds.

Misc Fixes
* Server crash fixes
* Fixed a minor error in the Station Mastery description
* Fixed targetable effects in Blue Photon Processing.
* Fixed RDD Dynamo Blueprint from giving you back a blueprint to giving you a RDD Dynamo superitem.
* Rewritten Grooved Bores skill description to be clearer, as the tracking bonus applies to all weapon types, the physical damage bonus applies to all weapon types and the projectile speed bonus applies to all damage types

+ Reduced the spawn-timer on Zobitan’s Hareem in Paxius.

Client performance improvement
* Some minor performance improvement when rendering the galaxy map and loading new textures.
* Client memory usage dropped down considerably with texture preload enabled. On a clean install, very high should use about 1.1gb of ram with all textures preloaded. Please note that since the patchbot cannot delete, only add, old install gain less memory improvement. To get the full memory usage improvement on an old client, delete the cache and Content folder then run patchbot.exe to redownload the cleaner version.

Server/Client Patch 04.09.2016

It had been a rather long period since the last patch, mostly due to rather long to optimise performance issues and a few crashes fix but here it is.

Additions:

* Fixed an issue with the berserker item, Reactive Hull Explosion, de-charging on healing damage.
