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

As with all major new releases, we are looking to see what the stability is once we get this out onto the PTU with you all. If we determine this build is far too unstable to remain we may take this build down after a short while until after we resolve the stability issues. Our goal is to be able to leave this build up over the weekend though!

  • General Stability
  • Lorville Skyline 2.0
  • Salvage Contract Missions
  • Tractor Beam – T0.5 – Item Attaching and Detaching
  • Mining Balancing v01
  • Ghost Hollow Reclaimer PVP Mission
  • Mission Density Management

We are planning on running Jumptown and Fleet Week events (which includes the Expo Halls, Flyby, and Javelin tours) This whole weekend on the PTU servers

New Features


  • Ghost Hollow Reclaimer PVP Mission
    • Adding a new mission type to the Ghost Hollow crash site on MicroTech. Making use of the comm-array as well as AI nav-mesh, this mission type will create PVP encounters where players will need to fight for control over terminals for a chance at big credit payouts.
    • This is a mission with Outlaw UEC terminals in the Reclaimer derelict. When active, they generate UEC that anybody can withdraw, creating PVP encounters between players trying to control the terminals (which are also guarded by Outlaws AI). To start the terminals, the comms array must be disabled. If that is done, the terminals can be activated in the tower next to the derelict ship.
    • To start this event at the Ghost Hollow Crash Site, a player will need to disable the Stanton4 comm array above MicroTech which will enable the terminals and a Mobiglas communication is sent to all nearby players.
    • As this is a PVP event, this Evocati test we are allowing PVP in the proximity of Ghost Hollow for testing purposes.
