Server/Client Patch 5.08.2015

This is a patch containing a lot of internal changes that were required for our steam integration to work, not all that much to say about it in patch notes until everything is actually turned on.

None the less, here are the notes.

* 14 new server crash found and fixed.
* 8 different client crashes tracked and fixed (around 3 crash left that i know off but was unable to pinpoint, keep those dmp flowing)
* A few minor client optimisations, especially when in a ship with a lot of different items.
* Achievements are now enabled, but cannot be rewarded unless you have a steam client (which are not available yet), When you get an achievement on regular client you receive a message in event and it will be awarded to you as soon as you connect using a steam client (no need to redo them)
* Added all the files needed for steam support on the server side.
* Added bonus XP for the first time capturing an AI with each different type of hull. Added /caps chat command to list how many and which unique hulls you have captured. At least for now, capping a new ship type is set to give a flat 500 XP.
* Made Ambushinmatrixes (Seer Radar Jammer items) not trigger if your weapnos’ damage is less than 0 (shield transferences)
+ Fixed a spawner bug in protoplasmica that caused spawns to only start dropping keysyncs on the second spawn.
+ Added experience tag to a lot of spawners under 120 in low/mid level galaxies so the spawned ai will provide experience.
* Removed augs from ares warriors and replaced them with an OL
* Made it so that vacuum scoops will not effect items that the owner is not allowed to scoop
* Vacuum scoops will now shut themselves off after 30s
* Improved the speed on sp related transactions (the delay should be a lot shorter now)
* Made energybanks report their energy per second rather than energy per generation interval (1.2s)
+ Fixed particle emitters. Player/ ai Holo projectors as well as particle emitters in effected galaxies have been fixed.
* Fixed a display error for skill point debt/credit
* Item factories no longer work on abandoned bases
* Small changes to the roaming UrQa’qa Qu’ishi boss
* Added a new functionality to prevent specific items (ai only items) from being used by players.
* Fixed an issue where Lunarian and Selenite Ray and Beam had their stats swapped around
* Added fires to several heat damage weapons from Perilous Perilous Space
* Small improvements to Lunarian Bank and Selenite Bank
* Improved the Hybridized Paximinus to make it in line with the Paximinus stats

Server Patch 3.18.2015

Server Patch 3.18.2015
Lots of bug fixes here today!

* Fixed a bug with /mc where certain shops would not show up in the list even though they had the best price
* Fixed a server crash
* Small adjustments to Ultimte Art of Healing Augmenter and Ultimate Art of Commanding Augmenter
* Fixed an issue where the Factories in Kalthi Stronghold didn’t use the right commodities

* Fixed some typing errors in inline replacement variables used in some missions (such as $startstation)

Server Patch 2.27.2015

Server Patch 2.27.2015

* Prep for monthly event (blog post coming soon)
* Players can now construct up to 10k items at once, but the discount maxes out at the same percent as 1k items. This will potentially be lifted even higher in the future.
* Owning an HQ gal will now give a team 200 team xp per day
* Made is so that missions that reset themselves on completion (repeatable missions) will automatically correct themselves if they are marked as completed due to previously incorrect xml. This should fix most instances of missions being bugged for specific players.

Server Patch 2.17.2015

Server Patch 2.17.2015

* Server changes to allow webchat to work again!
* Fixed an issue with Perilous Perilous Space AI tossing their missiles and fighters
* New spawner values for Perilous Perilous Space roaming AI
* Slightly rebalanced all Perilous Perilous Space AI to make up for the reduction in amount of AI and swarming
* Fixed an issue where T9 Junkyard kits came with T12 extensors
* Tweaked the drop tables for Perilous Perilous Space slightly, mainly increased the chance of getting build commodities and items as drops, and lowered the chance of getting blueprints
* Added some new items to the drop tables for Perilous Perilous Space dungeons

Beta client version 286.111

beta 286.135
* tweaked the onscreen fps display to be smaller and less flickery. Should be a lot less annoying to the eye now.

–Since the micropatch was pretty minor, ill just slip that here–

* fix for the bases not updating their energy/shield properly when docked and the value change
* few tweaks to the perilous perilous ais to improve the balance

this is a minor performance and quality of life update.
* when you maximize the window it nows go in what could be considered equivalent to the “show taskbar” option in c1 (no titlebar but taskbar is visible if on that monitor). Except theres a restore button in the top right. This was done for 2 reasons, 1. it gives you more space on the screen for the game, 2. it fix an issue some graphic card have when you maximize a d3d9 window on a secondary monitor.
* 3 different client crashes were fixed.

- Currently cause issue with mouse related actions when maximized. (fixed in the new beta version)

to try out / use just install it from http://www.starsonata.com/dl/StarSonata_2_beta.exe

Server/Client Patch 1.31.2015

This is the pre reset patch. The uni reset will occur at 1PM server time (EST) (see the website frontpage for current server time)

+ Core Skill Training Revamp: We’ve added new locations to train core skills, and revamped some of the costs and requirements for the existing ones. This should make it less monotonous to train, and give more variety. We’ve also limited training to 3 in Sol, so any skill level above 3 will be trained outside Sol. The skill training that required items that could be extremely hard to obtain, were given other ways to train the skill that is always available. In addition to this, we have also updated the Lyceum Books that explains Core Skill Training to include the new locations and requirements. The missions in Sol that are related to core skills were also updated, so they work with the new locations.
+ Perilous Perilous space (see previous blog post)
* Fixed the issue with Timotheus the Red’s script
* Removed some cloaks from some low level AI that really didn’t need them
* Fixed the bug where slaves could not enter Paksapata Ekam, Dve and Tra
* Added global shouts to King Midas, Gurujana Ekam and Timotheus the Red
* Decreased the duration of vulnerability effect from unequipping a Capital Traveling Field to 10 seconds, which also decreased the warm-up time to 10 seconds
* Reduced the invulnerability aura on Uparaksana from 100% resisance to damage to 50% resistance to damage and 50% damage. This will trigger when there are other alien in the galaxy
* Increased the damage and shield on Uparaksana and similar invasion Outposts, the Uparaksana in the Sas region saw the biggest increase in damage
* Removed the Neurobound tag on Aveksaka Rift Generator
* Fixed an issue with the new T21/22 tractor blueprints not being in the right droptable
* Fixed Aveksaka in Perilous Space. They do not use grem anymore, and can not be healed by any damage types. They are also capturable as wild slaves.
* Added a new tweak and holoprojector to Ancalagon’s drop table
* Added a bunch of new tutorial events specifically for the pirate side of the Nexus if the player is not figuring out early missions
* Removed a duplicate mission on the pirate side
* Combat slaves will only start a new attack if either their master is in the same galaxy, or else they are in a galaxy owned by their team
* Removed the parasite from Stingray Laser and replaced it with -25% range and speed tweaks on the weapon itself to prevent it being too powerful
* Fix for the uni map loading speed
* Fixed a bug with tractors where they could be activated despite the target being disrupted.
* new code to help catch and fix client freezes. If your client freeze, wait about 10 seconds and a window should popup about a deadlock being detected. It will generate a starsonata.dmp same as if you crash. Send me that to dmpfile@starsonata.com and hopefully we can fix them all
* one rare occurence (less rare when multiclienting) of a freeze was fixed on the client

Server Patch 1.13.2015

Server Patch 1.13.2015

* Fixed most advanced class subskills effecting bases and other things they shouldn’t have.
* AI Drones will no longer count towards the temp drone limit
* Galaxies at risk of being cut off will now send a message to team chat.
* Drones that have no owner and are both destroyed and irradiated will be automatically deleted (this is normally impossible, and should delete the remaining bugged Electric Eel drones) Oops, looks like we were overly cautious here (automatic deletion is scary) and not all the bugged drones were deleted, we’ll get the rest in a future patch.
* Fixed a bug where you could not invite someone to the squad in instances with the default limit of 10
* BvB off outposts is now fixed.
* The bug where outpost drones would go unowned shortly after owning a gal is now fixed.

* Removed Astral Travel from various space stations
* Field Generator items now have to “warm up” after you equip them for an amount of time equal to the length of the longest aura that they bestow. For most, this is about 1 second. This is to prevent people from rapidly cycling through a bunch of different field generators in order to get the effect of multiple ones at the same time.
* Changed rules for deploying drones so that they no longer get block
* Multiple crash fixes and performances improvements both server and client

And offcourse, this patch also include the new xmas letters and some other xmas related things

Server/client Patch 8.11.2014

This patch introduce 2 new major features alongside the generic fixes / tweaks etc.

– The new ship info window, containing all sorts of useful information about your ships current stats.

– The ship paintjob (skins) which are available in every spacestation at a cost of 10 spacepoints each for the first iteration of the system.
Not all ships have skins available but many of the mid to high end ships do. See at the end of this post for a preliminary list of the skins available.
- Once you buy a skin, it is permanently added to your account, all your characters can use it at any time on any ship that they own. You can also use skins on your slaves, but transfering the slave will cause it to lose the skin on server restart (will probably be changed to a demo paintjob timer)
- Skins can be seen in the preview window when buying them and can be demoed 30 seconds for free.
** Winners of the skin contest will had their skins donated to their account.

bug fixes:
* Made it so a solarbody can’t get two different types of ruins (you could only access one anyway)
* Players can no longer transwarp docked ships.
* Made it so you can’t equip fighter bays or missile launchers on ships with 0 weapon slots
* Stations now dropped in attempt to BvB keep track of that fact
** Altered the enemy-lines abandonment to only abandon bases from failed BvB attempts
* Fix for missions auto-abandoning when the server has been up for around two weeks
* Fixed an issue causing the alt key to become locked when alt-tabbing on some systems. (does not affect the locking of thrust / brake / firing that are on purpose)
* Fixed ‘Destroyed was destroyed by ‘ typo-bug
* Error message changed from ‘&myguy doesn’t belong to any squad’ to ‘You don’t belong to any squad’ when trying to do squad actions without one
* Fixed autopilot to unknown galaxy message from “Traveling to .” to “Traveling to unknown Galaxy”
* Fixed an issue with the rightclick -> activate control bot not working sometimes when the ship had never been opened.
* Fixed an issue where the weapon manager did not reset properly on reconnection.
* Fixed an issue causing inventory to not display (especially with higher /nf value)
* Fixed an issue with scoop speed.
* Hopefully fixed the issue causing docked ships to appear when docking.
* Fixed rts control for drones. They should now properly attack what you tell them to (target itself to reset to default behavior), if they are combat only drone, targeting yourself or a friendly will cause them to revert to normal behavior, and the inverse is also true for pure healing drones. targeting an enemy will cause them to revert to default behavior.
