Note: This patch does not contain all of the intended features, which will be added iteratively to the notes as they become available. Additionally, some features may be implemented in a partial state and as such are not ready for testing. When those features reach a playable state they will be detailed on the notes and added to the “Testing Focus”. Please issue council all issues related to those in testing focus and in general gameplay.

Current cloud tech is still in active development and not yet final. There’s ongoing work on SDF occlusion which should help alleviate the graphical artifacting (visual dots in the clouds). Additionally, we are working towards having local VFX for the clouds (similar to the gas clouds around rest stops) which will make a big difference in overall quality.

Testing Focus

  • Crusader
  • Orison Landing Zone
  • Law System v2: Surrender
  • Power Management v2 (Capacitor Gameplay)
  • Limited ships in build: Aurora MR, Mustang Alpha, Gladius, 300i, Vanguard Warden, F7C, F7CM, Retaliator, Hammerhead, Arrow, Buccaneer

In this build we have made Orison the default spawn location as well as temporarily enabled the ability to always select a new spawn when joining the PU.

Gameplay

Power Management and Ship weaponry balance pass

  • Significantly increased ammo counts on ship ballistic weapons, S1 to S4 cannons projectile velocity slowed down, but greater DPS (more useful against larger targets, less against smaller), all scatterguns now slower with a much reduced range. Some ship default loadouts have changed and replaced scatter guns on turrets. Regen pool and capacitor load pool adjusted for P52, Aurora, Mustang, and 100 series.
