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.

Testing Focus

  • Ship Positional Desync Test
  • Lorville Hospital and Space Station Clinic Variations
  • River
  • Coffee Shop Vendor
  • Mining Gadgets
  • Player Injury Updates
  • DNA Head Texture Updates
  • Shopping and Selling

Known Issues

  • Creating a female character results in a male body (gawd, relatable)
  • Starfarer Boom Arm not repairing if destroyed
  • There can be duplicate elevators at UGFs
  • Shubin Interstellar kiosk in New Babbage still using the old Shop UI
  • Players cannot buy components directly into ship storage (will be coming later in the PTU cycle)
  • Buying or Selling items in rapid succession causes the “Buy/Sell” buttons in the confirmation window to become inoperable
  • The ‘Sell’ page at Live Fire Weapons will not update properly
  • Players are receiving more than intended combat assist notifications
  • Players can experience severe delays and failures to equip items into the appropriate inventory slots
  • Clicking items too quickly can cause them to go missing. We suggest equipping items slower in this build and verify that each item equips before trying the next one
  • Nearby players will experience a visual stall when a player interacts with a shopping terminal, which lasts for up to several seconds
  • ASOP terminals can be accessed by other players while in-use by another player
  • ASOP terminal displays successful retrieval with designated hangar number; however, there is no ship marker and designated hangar is empty
  • Large New Babbage hangers are missing collisions
  • Cave interiors on planets with breathable atmospheres do not have an atmosphere which will cause the player to die from suffocation
  • AR Markers are present when opening the mobiGlas which can make it hard to read
  • Many mineable asteroids can’t be scanned
  • Ships can explode after players exit them
  • MFDs are difficult to interact with due to overriding Inner Thought prompts (work to resolve this is in-progress and may be resolved in some ships in this new build)
