8.2.0 Patch Notes

1. Bot AI adjustments, more classes
2. Ship balance and economy fine tuning
3. Refined ship upgrade process
4. Re-enabled “who -l” roster
5. Fire seeker probe with fs [shipletter]
6. Minor bug fixes

1. BOT AI

  • Bots will fight more aggressively in some cases
  • They choose better classes to fly (instead of iia, bop etc)
  • Slightly fewer bots operating overall

2. SHIP BALANCE / ECONOMY

3. SHIP UPGRADES

  • Upgrades are offered to any class that originates at each homeworld. For example, any Klingon can upgrade at Klinzhai or any Romulan can upgrade at Romulus
  • Upgrades now reset gold to Zero no matter how much gold the purchaser has
  • Upgrades are only offered to ships with more than 20,000 gold
  • “Upgrade” classes as expected, are typically more powerful than average ships
  • Sphere and Cube are now offered to the AVG IX exclusively
  • AVG IX is now a starting class and can upgrade to either Sphere OR Cube. There is no longer a requirement to buy them in order

4. GAME FEATURES

  • Seeker Probes have been re-enabled. These are short lasting probes you can launch with “fs(ship letter)”. The probe will travel towards the target ship for a few seconds, regardless of distance or cloak
  • Lithium mines have been re-enabled. They are mines that can be towed. They explode after several seconds, damaging everything in the immediate area. They increase in strength if you shoot them before they explode.
  • The “who -l” ship name has been re-enabled. This is similar to the “who” ship name which prints a roster of all the active ships in the game. Type either “who” or “who -l” at the ship name prompt when you connect to the game. “who” displays a list of active ships and their scores. “who -l” displays a modified list identifying whether a ship belongs to a human player or a robot account.

5. BUG FIXES/MISC

  • Fixed a few misspellings (restart warning)
  • Patched a relatively obscure in-game exploit that could be used against other players
  • Fixed the unlocked freighter torpedo damage
  • Adjusted observer device spawn locations
