Hotfix Patch 05.10.2017

This patch is to address an unforeseen issue with base thrusters in bvb. It seems that they can currently be used by the defenders to indefinitely “outrun” a bvb attack and prevent loss of ownership and cause a loss of all attacking kits. This patch will be making the following changes:

*Base thrusters cannot be equipped (and will turn off if already on) on a kit that has been attacked in the last 5 minutes (sharing a timer with the base transfer rule).

*Bases outside of the userbase placement limits (over 30k from the nearest solarbody e.g. suns, planets, wormholes, etc) will not count for galaxy ownership. If the only kits in the galaxy are outside of this limit, the galaxy will go un-owned. If a galaxy is owned with kits outside of their team beyond the limits, they will be converted to bvb kits.

Server Patch 04.26.2017

Server Changes


* Another server lag from bvb (or other heavy spaceobjects scenario) fixed, hopefully is the last one.

Content Changes


* Reduced Twisted Nikola shield caps from 17mil to 15mil.

* Adjusted Stygian Fist

* Reduced size on (Primal) Lion V2 Rocket. This had a severe impact on their stats.

Bug Fixes


* Fixed bots getting full bonuses to fighter bay slots, they now get half the fighter slots bonus from the master
