PC Patch Notes for 1/10/19

By Ambassador Kael | Wed 09 Jan 2019 02:46:53 PM PST

General:

  • Resolved an issue that was causing the Discovery Klingons to not use modern torpedoes.
  • Resolved an issue that was causing the Type 7 Shuttle to not appear in the reclaim store.
  • The Borg engine attachment is now properly seated on the nacelle for the Dinaes Warbird Destroyer (T6)
  • Resolved an issue that was causing the Male Caitian Ears to clip through the Vedek Hood.
  • Resolved an issue that was causing the Duty Officer weekend to display on the Calendar.

Content:

  • Captains can now access and begin playing the first episode in any story arc.
  • The Crystalline Entity TFO has been updated with various changes to match the Event version:
    • There is now a 30 second Mission Briefing time before the TFO begins.
      • This allows players time to join the TFO and read the briefing if necessary, before taking on the Entity.
    • The Entity shards that it deploys are now immune to control effects.
    • Small Shards will no longer buff the Entity’s damage for the entire TFO.
      • Instead, they will give the entity buff stacks towards a more powerful Energy Release after its Absorption Phase.
      • This change results in a potentially stronger Energy Release attack.
      • In response to that, we’ve added a growing AoE indicator to show the area of the Energy Release and how long it will be before it goes off.
    • The Energy Release attack no longer is guaranteed to hit if caught in the AoE indicator when it releases, allowing players to outrun the blast if fast enough.
    • The Entity Beam attacks no longer apply a Flight Speed debuff to players.
      • Instead, Large Shards on Advanced Difficulties will apply a Flight Speed debuff if they are able to explode on a player.
    • The Entity is now entirely immune to damage while in its Absorption Phase.
      • We wanted this phase to be about avoiding the Energy Release and preventing the shards from buffing the attack.
    • The Entity Absorption Phase is now 15 seconds long rather than 30 seconds.
      • This was the case on advanced versions of the queue but is now in parity with Normal.
    • Once the Entity has been destroyed it will explode into many Small Salvageable Crystal Fragments, these fragments can be destroyed to gain 1-5 Salvage from each of them.
  • Resolved an issue that was causing enemies in the TFO, “Tzenkethi Front” to not appear with a bombs needed to complete the mission objectives.
  • Tzenkethi Battlezone has received several updates:
    • Increased timer for area reset from 10 minutes to 15 minutes.
    • Adjusted waypoints for blockade arrays so that they match the centers of the array areas as closely as possible.
    • Resolved an issue that could cause problems with the display of various area control UI on the overhead map.
    • Resolved an issue that caused the asteroid towing game UI to show score from 0-10 instead of 0-3.
  • Resolved an issue that prevented minimum height characters from be able to a "Scan Continuum" and "Activate transporter" Console in the mission, “Stormbound”.
  • Resolved an issue during the Discovery Era Tutorial that could sometimes block progression when breaching the Engineering room.
  • Resolved an issue that prevented mission replay from working with "Wasteland" story arc (Nimbus III missions).
  • Tesseract communications receiver (Delta Recruit) now no longer requires completion of removed Klingon missions for credit on its "collect all tech" and "collect all info" sections.
  • Resolved an issue that prevented the “Yesterday’s War” accolade from completing.
  • Resolved an issue that prevented KDF Captains from accessing “Spectres” and “Lost Dominion” missions.
  • Fixed an issue that caused Temporal Agents not to get automatic completion credit for "The Kuvah'magh."
  • Resolved an issue that could sometimes prevent the “Grand Acquisitor Accolade” from completing.
  • Resolved an issue that prevent FED aligned Dominion Captains from accessing the mission, “Beyond the Nexus”.
  • Resolved an issue in the Romulan tutorial missions that could sometimes block mission progression.
  • Resolved an issue with the console in the mission, “Tangled Webs”, which could cause the player to be stuck.
  • The Doomsday Device has received brand new cutscenes and animations!
  • Resolved an issue that prevented FED Aligned Romulans from taking the shuttle to Starfleet Academy on ESD.
  • Resolved an issue where certain NPC’s would use Discovery Era Phaser Rifles.
  • There is now no limit to the number of flashlights you can own, but you can only have one equipped at a time during Starbase Incursion TFO.
  • Resolved an issue that allowed the Temporal Portal to be knocked back in the mission, “Everything Old is New”.

UI:

  • Reputation Donation UI has been updated to provide a cleaner more efficient user experience.
    • Streamlined UI for quicker access to Reputation projects.
    • “Fill All” button added to allow quicker contributions.
  • Resolved an issue where Admiralty Roster sorting wasn’t working as intended.
  • Resolved an issue that caused some information about rewards to be missing on the Reputation UI.
  • Increased the width of number entry field in the Exchange so numbers greater than one digit are visible.
  • Added count of items to items in the store buyback.
  • Resolved a typo in the description names in the Ship Tailor when modifying the 31st Century Agents of Yesterday Mega bundle ships.

    • This fixes existing items.

  • Resolved an issue that caused the Reputation Discount to fail to apply to the Antiproton Compression Rifle.
  • Resolved an issue where some Personal Mobility Shields had weapon modifiers instead of shield modifiers.
    • This fixes existing items.
  • Resolved an issue that was causing the Universal Endeavor, “Participate in a PvP match” to not respect losing in addition to a victory.

    • No longer applied by pets (just your weapons).
    • Respects the 5-max stack limit reflected in the tooltip.
    • Duration of the debuff has been increased to 20sec, and may now be applied with Torpedo Spread.
  • Cover Shields now only have a 60 second duration.
    • Cooldown remains unchanged.
  • Resolved an issue that could cause Maneuvering Thrusters to flicker on and off sometimes.
  • Resolved an issue with NPC version of Isometric Charge which caused it to use the improper source to calculate damage in most scenarios.
    • It will now always use the ability's original source to calculate damage.
  • Resolved an issue in the display name of the "Mempa Sector" Transwarp so it shows the correct destination instead of just reading "Transwarp".
