Default Game Update 07 – Unity

Pilots,

We are updating the game version to Unity 4 and therefore updating the engine of our game. This means: you all need to update your Unity players to the newest version. You will find it here: http://unity3d.com/webplayer/

With this new version the game’s performance and stability will improve. We expect client crashes and game freezes to be minimal, and being more dependent on your hardware setup in the future. If you’re experiencing graphical glitches after the release of this update you should starting trouble-shooting by updating your graphical drivers.

Are you being disturbed in your game play by invitations for duels, squads or alike? Well, then you better turn on the new “Do not disturb” function! Just type /dnd in the chat and you block all kind of invites automatically.

Also: We have been able to fix the mining bonus calculation bug for dominant factions. Means: No more almost 60% bonus for those (mostly colonial) miners on your server. This is of course just one of the first steps of our measures to improve economy and faction balance!
Speaking of faction balance:
Did you hear the news? Check out the faction switch announcement here: > Faction Switch OA <

We are deploying this update to all live servers on Thursday, May 2nd. This update will contain bug fixes, improvements and feature releases.
This update will need a server maintenance of approx. 90 minutes overall. We are going to start to shut the servers down at 10.30 am CEST (UTC+2). The countdown will start around 15 minutes beforehand.

The game update will be deployed as following:
10.30 am CEST – EU Libran, Virgon, Canceron
11.00 am CEST – EU Tauron, Picon, Sagitarron
11.30 am CEST – US EAST
11.45 am CEST – US WEST
12.00 am CEST – Kobol

Patch Notes:


Features:


Client version update to Unity 4:
  • General improvement of performance and stability
  • Download of the newest Unity player version necessary
“Do not disturb” function:
  • Typing /dnd in chat blocks invites for duels, squadrons, wings and rejects friend requests
  • Typing /dnd again turns it off
Bugfixes:
  • Fixed an issue where the dominant faction received a mining bonus of almost 60% instead or 20% due to a failure in bonus calculation

Due to a technical issue we are going to have quick server restarts at 2pm CEST (UTC+2). Restart order will be like this morning, expected downtime is going to be a couple of minutes per server.

Bugfixes:

- Fixed an issue where it was possible to use the function “Follow friendly target” over infinite distance, now minimum distance to use this function is 5000 meters
- Fixed an issue where PD and Flak were ineffective against missiles

Thanks to your reports we have been able to fix two more issues that occurred during the patch update release yesterday. To make it more convenient for everyone we will apply the fix to the servers via web update and therefore do not need another server maintenance and downtime. This web update will happen during the afternoon around 4pm.

Bugfixes:

- Fixed an issue where the carrier ship was able to repair all other ship classes

UI improvements:

- Improved the font in the UI for more readability and less blur

After the web update around 4 pm we are also turning the web layer for the Faction Switch on – so by then it will be possible to send in your application!
