Systems[edit | edit source]

  • Admiralty:
    • Resolved a text bug on the Odyssey Engineering, Science, and Tactical variants that stated that they gain +20 to appropriate stat when alone.
      • This should be +35.
    • Updated all descriptions for Admiralty Ship Abilities that ignore Event modifiers to indicate that they also ignore those that reduce stat requirements.
  • Owning the Kara Advanced Warbird [T6] will now correctly provide a fleet module discount on the Fleet Ha'apax Advanced Warbird [T6].
    • For players who have experienced this issue where a discount was not applied, the discount will be automatically applied in the store after this update.
  • Resolved an issue where many Duty Officer missions were missing on the current map the player was on.

Powers[edit | edit source]

  • The following powers and abilities required a significant overhaul to improve server/client performance:
    • Removed the small radius (0.3km) secondary explosion from individual hits of Torpedo Spread, on all Non-Targetable Torpedos (except Neutronic – see separate notes).
      • This secondary explosion was incorrectly causing it to universally deal minimal damage, and was leading to an unexpected and unintended number of excess combat calls, and proc chances.
    • Resolved an issue that was causing Torpedo Spread to check its chance to activate special effects twice per activation pulse (up to 4 extra times @ Rank III).
      • This change will normalize the proc chance of Torpedo Spread, bringing it more in-line with expected behavior, and more balanced overall with High Yield, Transport Warhead, and other special torpedo firing modes.
    • Resolved an issue that was causing Fire-at-Will to check its chance to activate Kemocite-Laced Weaponry and Plasma Explosion (from Embassy Consoles) twice per activation pulse (5 extra times @ all Ranks)
      • This change will normalize the proc rates will using Fire-at-Will and bring them into better balance with Cannon Scatter Volley, Cannon Rapid Fire, and other special energy firing modes.
    • Plasma Explosions (from Embassy Consoles) now check their chance to activate on every shot of a firing cycle, instead of only the first shot.
      • Due to the increase in opportunity to trigger, their base damage has been reduced by 18%.
      • This change will allow all firing modes to benefit equally from these effects
    • Neutronic Torpedo Spread (all ranks):
      • Primary Target will initiate a 5.0km Radiation AOE once per Torpedo in the Spread volley (1x @ Rank I, 2x @ Rank II, 3x @ Rank III)
      • Secondary Targets will not cause Radiation AOEs at all (instead of also causing a 3.0km radius AOE)
      • In order to offset this reduction in number of AOE explosions, the Base Damage of the Radiation AOE has been increased by 400%
        • This damage change only affects the Torpedo Spread version of this torpedo – all Radiation AOEs from other firing modes remain unchanged.
      • This change will cause a reduction in the triggering of special abilities that were attaching to the Radiation AOE of this special Torpedo (e.g. Kemocite Laced Weaponry)
  • Resolved an issue where Photonic Overcharge was overly benefiting from damage enhancements.
  • Ranged weapons that deal Physical Damage are no longer enhanced by the +% Physical Damage mod on the Counter-Command Exo-Armor, Solanae Sentinel Environmental Suit, and many other armors.
    • This mod only affects Melee weapons/attacks.
  • Corrected an issue that caused some science powers to build more than 1 stack of Time to Kill.
  • Kemocite-laced Weaponry now only triggers off the main target of Torpedo: Spread volleys, with one Kemocite Explosion per torpedo which hits the main target.
    • The Kemocite Explosion damage when triggered by a Torpedo: Spread volley has been increased.
  • Quantum Phase Torpedo's shield drain now only triggers once off the main target of Torpedo: Spread volleys.
    • The shield drain radius and damage when triggered by a Torpedo: Spread volley has been increased.
  • Supremacy will now only trigger when Beam: Fire at Will or Cannon: Scatter Volley is active.
  • Winter Event-only weapons no longer benefit from skills such as “Advanced Tactics”, and are no longer affected by traits or enhancements.
    • Their tooltips have been updated to state they damage Snowmen, and no longer state they do normal damage.

Foundry[edit | edit source]

  • Removed the volume in the Ancient Iconia template map that was causing issues with backdrops.
  • Updated the description of the Locker Wall detail objects to include the information that one of them is random.
  • Set the Herald groups to level 57.

UI[edit | edit source]

  • Added a "Delete Multiple" feature to the Mail UI.
  • Project sliders for Reputation, Guild, and Alliance contributions will now start at the maximum slider value instead of the minimum, excluding Dilithium.
  • Added a unique banner in the episode journal for the category Future Proof.
  • There is now a proper error message when trying to reclaim a ship from the C-Store when there already is a version of it Dry Docked.

Known Issues[edit | edit source]

  • Unlocked Trait slots become "Locked" while in a queue or adventure zone which lowers the player’s level.
    • This includes when teamed with someone at a lower level in an instance.
  • Changing the windows in the Ship Tailor can also change the materials option.
  • Players cannot challenge other players on different maps.
  • Item slots display as empty when items are attached while composing a message.
