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:
* Multiple Server performance improvements, especially in large scale bvb scenarios. 30 vs 30 bases should not affect the server nearly as much as it currently does.

* Slaves are now referred to as “bots”.
* Improved some existing temporary drones: BFD 9000, Ares drone.
* Perma drones were updated across the board, see http://forum.starsonata.com/viewtopic.php?f=107&t=61674 for details. Already deployed drones should not be affected but newly deployed ones will have the new equipments.
* Improved user interface across the board, see http://forum.starsonata.com/viewtopic.php?f=107&t=61529 for details.

* Fixed an issue with the berserker item, Reactive Hull Explosion, de-charging on healing damage.
* Fix sniper analysis not resetting when item is unequipped.

* Made it so the AI Outposts won’t spawn in owned/protected galaxies
+ reduced copper 5 spawn time to match the rest of the levels.
+ doubled the voltage and ampage spawners in EF layer so people trying to do strontium have a few more ai to kill. The additional spawners will not be aggro so low level players won’t have trouble with the increased amount of ai. The experience and drops on the additional ai have been decreased.
* Fixed some spawners jumping out of galaxies when they were not supposed to (I’m looking at you Space Rat Broodmother!)
* Increased emp’s despawn time to match his respawn time (120hr, used to be 1hr)
* Set Cardinal Bellarmine’s respawn time to 1day (from 20 minutes) as he’s instanced
* Fixed High Prophet’s lockout
+ Converted protoplasmica gates from key syncs to gate lock system
+ Giant asteroid spawner generation fix
* Fixed an issue where UrQa’qa Qu’ishi was not randomized and bound to its layer

Temple of adum:
* changed the timezone on the secret temple of adum mission to match server time instead of gmt.
+ fixing sentinel boss spawners in trials of adum so that they will as intended unequip their weapons upon engage unless you do something wrong in the trial.

Subspace missions:
+ Removed incorrect second starting galaxy for BluePhoton and Lyceum intro missions.
* some tweaks to the mission text – adding in directions to instances, reminding players they’ll need a planet scanner, cleanup of text.
* fixed some mission start and ends that had been commented out due to autocomplete. Players can now abandon and then restart autostart missions. I also made the autostart missions dialogs popup in the EFI arm of subspace.
+ Subspace missions blue photon arm boss will now drop the mission commod even if the boss is one shotted.
+ higher level missile and fighter missions have been decoupled from the lower level missions. Players will now be able to start these missions without having completed the low level mission chain.
+ added subspace enforcer for the prize at the end of the EF I subspace missions

T21 Missions:
+ Roaming Hermes will no longer roam into perilous perilous space.
+ Adding The Pilot Farm galaxy in staff quarters for the t21 capture the pilot missions.
+ Added a key mission to the Arena chain of t21 missions. All missions in the chain will need to be opened in order to open the key mission to get into the pilot farm. They key mission will be in the same base as the rest of the arena missions.
+ added a custom wave dungeon for the guardian missions for t21 skills.
+ Electric Eel now has a custom DG in staff quarters.
+ T21 missions are no longer randomized. You can now do any one of them per day.
+ T21 dailies increased to 3 day lockout, but randomization removed.
+ moved the instance holes in staff quarters to make more sense.

* are things that will go in at the time of the patch
+ are things that require a new universe before they actually apply.

May 16th Universe Reset Server Patch Notes

+ Asteroid belt fix for the belts that are small and only contain one type of asteroid (asteroids were spawning in under 30 seconds, was supposed to be 5 hours, now is far less and more in line with what other belt spawners are).


* Emperor Tithe is now 10% of scooped credits, items sold to colonies, and items sold to AI stations.
* Fixed a bug where prospecting nodes in Perilous Space would be able to appear in the lowest danger factor of Perilous Perilous Space.
* Fixed a bug where vacuum scoops were not pulling in items due to the changes that did not let them act on items the owner could not scoop.
* Increased scoop autoshutdown from 30 sececonds to 2 minutes.
* Tweaked decay message to add details if its not the active ship.
