Patch 0.33.1

 

Date: March 1st, 2020

 

Beta Branch Note: These changes are currently available on the beta branch. The beta branch is for testing experimental changes and for finding and fixing errors.

 

This is how you get access to the beta branch (USE AT YOUR OWN RISK):

Right-Click on Avorion in your Steam list, Properties -> Betas -> Select branch 'beta'.

 

Gameplay

  • Repair AI now uses fighters
  • Scrapyard license time now adds up to a max of 60 min

  • De-weirdified several ship styles
  • Auto-Assignment of crews can now be configured per-ship
  • Added hints about the brotherhood to wreckages near the barrier
  • Several tutorials now start only later into the game and not immediately at the beginning
  • Improved brake behavior of ships when a player obviously wants to slow down (and not drift)
    • Example: Pressing no keys would brake faster than pressing backwards because the latter was interpreted as "drifting"

Balancing

  • Increased strength of several new bosses
  • Respawning of resource asteroids in asteroid fields happens faster now

  • Added "Report a Bug" and "Latest News & Updates" link to pause menu
  • Improved useability of commanding over the galaxy map
  • Turrets can now be replaced in building mode when shift is held
  • Reverted automatic mirrored selection
    • Mirrored merging of blocks still works

    [*]Added new icons for alliance emblem creator

    [*]Added input support for IME

    • Not completely done yet, but we'd like to start testing ASAP

    [*]Increased pause between two hints to 90 seconds after clicking them away

    [*]Turrets in current ship window are now highlighted on select or mouseover

    [*]Improved sorting of equipped turrets overview in current ship window

    [*]Improved several issues where tooltips weren't visible or blocking other UI elements

    [*]Added a menu setting that enables more detailed tooltips

    [*]Added DPS/Slot line when slots are not 1

    [*]Added mission priority (ie. order in missions list) and icons to missions

    [*]Improved several dialogs

    [*]Added a "You have new mail" chat message

    [*]Added price to upgrade tooltips

    [*]Added advertisements to clarify the (very much intended) randomness of research stations

    [*]Reduced frequency of station ads (looking at you, Repair Dock)

Graphics

  • When drone is near a dock and the dock is pushing away objects, the lasers are rendered with minimum brightness to not confuse players

Scripting API

  • Renamed ControlAction.MoveCamera1 -> ControlAction.FreeLook, ControlAction.MoveCamera2 -> ControlAction.MoveCamera
