Star Citizen Patch 2.4.0 - 10.06.2016

Star Citizen Alpha 2.4.0

Alpha Patch 2.4.0 has been released and is now available for players! This patch provides access to our new Shopping experience, full Hangar interactivity from within the game client via new options and the Port Modification App. Many changes to Crusader and Port Olisar including the implementation of new missions, Alpha Currency and Defender reputation. Tying all these new features together and making them truly possible is our first iteration of server-side Persistence – our first persistent server databases! With this we can begin storing information about in-game characters, items, currency and reputation so they can be recalled between game play sessions. We also have our first pass on control unification between flight and fps controls which promises a much greater experience for our players, new flyable Starfarer and Starfarer Gemini, the hangar-ready Reliant and numerous fixes across the game.

Your launcher should should show “2.4.0-363258” as the client version. It is strongly recommended that players delete their USER folder for the Public client after patching, particularly if you start encountering any odd character graphical issues or crash on loading. The USER folder can be found (in default installations) at C:\Program Files\Cloud Imperium Games\StarCitizen\Public.

Please review our current list of 2.3.0 Known Issues FAQ, and take full advantage of our Issue Council area of the Community site to report any bugs you encounter, as well as contribute to other players submissions.

New Features
Star Systems:

After months of construction, the Casaba Shopping Outlet has opened up on ArcCorp!
Interested pilots can now purchase the latest fashions from around the frontier at affordable prices.
Cubby Blast has also fixed the main sales computer, and is ready to sell eager pilots weapons, flight suits and armor sets.
The shop clerks in ArcCorp have received some graphical improvements to be less soulless.


Port Olisar has been renovated. While some areas are still under construction, completed sections include improved atrium and the opening of several new shops, including Casaba Shopping Outlet, Garrity Defense and Live Wire Weapons.
Crusader Industries has made lockers available in both the Ez Hab rooms and outside the Port Olisar airlocks, to allow pilots to change their clothing during long stops.
If a player wishes to change their default civilian clothing, they will need to go to the shops in Port Olisar or ArcCorp and “Equip” items they have purchased.
This is a very temporary implementation until we have a better equipment access system implemented.
Characters now spawn into Port Olisar in their civilian clothing by default.
Characters who exit Port Olisar in civilian clothing rather then a spacesuit will die.
Comms Arrays will now automatically become disabled after a certain amount inactivity.
New landing pads have been added to all of the Port Olisar struts to allow them to hold larger ships.
The asteroid fields around Crusader have proven to be incredibly dangerous to shipping traffic after the veritable flood of pirates into the area.
As a result, enterprising salvage-hungry pilots may find many more wrecks and valuables in need of recovery in the Yela asteroid fields.
Likewise those who are enlisted by Tessa Bannister (at the local ICC Probe Station) may also find the odd keepsake of the poor lost souls who perished in the remote asteroid fields.
Security Post Kareah has received some renovations, including the addition of improved security station, airlock monitoring and contraband.


Hangar selections will no longer be available via the RSI website.
Players with multiple hangars can now select the Hangar they wish to use from the Main Menu of the game!
Inside of the “Options” menu, in the Game Options section, there is now a drop-down menu that will allow players to select which Hangar they would like to use.
This selection will persist between sessions.
Players who change their default Hangar while still inside the Hangar will need to exit and re-enter the hangar to see it update in the game-client.
Ships can be selected inside the Hangar via the Port Modification App.
The expansion bays for each Hangar are temporarily out of service.
This is temporary while we rework certain aspects of the expansion bays, so that they function alongside the Port Modification App.
The VFG industrial central hangar has been expanded to allow owners of large ships to spawn craft in while the expansion bays are worked on.
Likewise the Revel & York central hangar bay is now Extra-Large to allow owners of the Starfarer to spawn it in while the expansion bays are worked on.
The character loadout selector has been removed from the Hangar.
Characters now all load in with the same RSI space suit by default.
New civilian clothing and armor can be obtained from ArcCorp and Port Olisar.
Clothing can be equipped from the lockers on Port Olisar, or by interacting with previously-purchased items in ArcCorp.
The Holotable has been removed from the Hangar… for now.
Players will be able to modify their ships via the Port Modification App.

Game Systems:
Bounty and Reputation System

Crusader Industries has identified a potential weakness in their criminal monitoring network at the understaffed Security Post Kareah. As a result, Crusader Industries has constructed a much improved security station, armory and are looking to contract reliable pilots in the area as security guards to help protect it.

“Defenders” who repair enough Comm Array or ICC Probe missions will get offered a contract from Crusader Industries to protect Security Post Kareah from nefarious parties.
Newly recruited security guards will receive a weapon from Crusader Industries armory, and will need to defend the station for 10 minutes without dying or allowing any criminals to breach the main security terminal.
Security guards are authorized and encouraged to eliminate any trespassers that enter the station, with a 100 aUEC bonus instantly awarded per trespasser that is dispatched.
Added a “Public Enemy” mission that will trigger for all Defenders if the Outlaw player attempts to interact with the hacking terminal.

In response to the crackdown, Outlaws in Crusader are getting more organized. Mysterious allies are offering missions to undermine and derail the efforts of Crusader Industries.

Outlaws and Defenders in Crusader will receive missions to hunt one another in Crusader, with varying rewards.
Defenders will lose their mission to hunt Outlaws if they are killed by a Outlaw.
Outlaws will receive a mission to kill the new security guard at Security Post Kareah.
Outlaws who have a bounty on them can no longer be tracked via mobiGlas if they are outside monitored space.
Capped the Outlaw wanted level that a character can obtain for turning off Comm Arrays at 2.
Outlaws will now receive a mission to keep the Comm Arrays offline.
The Outlaw will receive an aUEC reward every time they kill a player attempting to turn on the Comm Array.

General Changes

Both “Defender” and “Outlaw” missions award AUEC.
The timer for Outlaw Wanted Levels only counts down while the account is online on Crusader, and will persist between sessions.
Outlaws no longer receive a special load out when they respawn.
Character names will appear “Red” on Augmented Reality when they have Outlaw wanted levels, and they will appear as hostiles when targeted in space.
Outlaws at Wanted Level 5 will no longer get kicked from the server when they are killed.
Outlaw Wanted level will instead persist between sessions.
Each Outlaw Wanted level now persists for a number of hours (not minutes) equal to the rank of Wanted.
Wanted Level 1 persists for 1 hour, Wanted Level 2 persists for 2 hours, ect.
Wanted Level 5 would persist for 5 hours. Going all the way from Wanted Level 5 to Wanted 0 without taking actions to decrease the Wanted Level would take a total of 15 hours.
The hack time needed to reduce a wanted level has been increased, and is now based on the players current wanted level.
Time needed to hack terminal is now 1 minute per wanted level.
Example: To reduced your wanted level from 5 to 4, takes 5 minutes.
The “Defender” reputation of a character on Crusader will persist between sessions.
The “Defender” reputation of a player in Crusader is not currently displayed on the HUD.
A players “Defender” reputation is permanent assuming no criminal actions are taken. Performing any criminal action will instantly erase any good reputation earned, and place them at Wanted Level 1.

Alpha Currency (aUEC)

We have added a new currency type that can be earned in-game specifically for testing purposes – Alpha UEC.
aUEC is currently awarded from performing both Outlaw and “Defender” missions in Crusader, and can also be earned by salvaging rare valuables in the asteroid fields around crusader.
ICC Probe, Comm Array and Covalex PI missions will award aUEC.
The Covalex PI Mission rewards more or less aUEC depending on the ending you receive.
aUEC can be used to purchase items in both Port Olisar, Crusader and Area 18, ArcCorp.
Every account will start with 2750 aUEC.
aUEC can be tracked in-game via mobiGlas and will be periodically wiped as needed throughout the Star Citizen Alpha.

Ship Respawn Costs

We have enabled ship respawn costs for Port Olisar!
Destroyed ships will now have a respawn timer after being destroyed.
Player can pay a aUEC fee to bypass the timer, and the cost to bypass the timer decreases over time.
The respawn timer and cost differ from ship to ship, with small ships generally being much faster then large ship.
The timer will continue to countdown, even while player is logged out of Crusader.

Repair, Restock, Refuel

Repairs, Restock, and Refuel in Crusader now cost aUEC.
When a ship lands on a Cry-Astro pad, the mobiGlas of the pilot will open automatically to the Cry-Astro app and show the character which service they need and how much each one costs.
The pilot can then select which ones they wish to purchase and then “Confirm” the service purchase.

Shopping Experience

We have introduced the first iteration of the Shopping Experience to both Port Olisar and Area 18! Shopping is accessible through Augmented Reality (on by default now) and mousing over any item you are interested in will give you the name, description and price of an item.

AR will also present you with two options – “Try on” or “Buy Now”, which users can toggle between via the mouse wheel or “dpad down” on Gamepad.
Either option can then be selected via the standard “Interact” keybinding, which by default is via “F” on the keyboard or “Y” on the Gamepad.
“Try On” will bring up a dressing room preview of how the item looks.
“Buy Now” will take you to the checkout screen, where you can confirm your purchase before it is delivered to your locker on Port Olisar.
There is also a option called “Deliver To” that is greyed-out, pending implementation in a future iteration.
If you already own an item, the UI will show “Equip” instead of “Buy Now”.
Cubby Blast (ArcCorp), Live Wire Weapons and Garrity Defence (Port Olisar) offer all of our currently available weapons, flight suits and armor sets.
Casaba Outlets offer civilian clothing in the form of hats, footwear, pants, shirts and jackets.
The main Casaba Outlet store on ArcCorp has a much larger selection of attire.
Items purchased via the shopping experience will also persist from session to session.
Please note that throughout the alpha and beta of Star Citizen we will periodically wipe items back to a clean state status for further testing.


One of the biggest features we’ve implemented in Alpha 2.4.0 is our first iteration of true server-side Persistence. Persistent databases are what allow us to store information on items, ships, and actions that a player has taken, such that they can return to exactly where they left off session-to-session. This is a huge step forward into the “Persistent” part of making the “Persistent Universe” the vast universe we all look forward to.

During this first iteration, the following items will now “Persist” on the database and be saved from session to session.
Alpha UEC
Item Purchases
Hangar Configurations
Ship Loadouts
Character Loadouts
Crusader Reputation (Criminal and Defender)
As new features are developed during Alpha, we anticipate that we will periodically reset the database to make way for new changes and fix problems that may have been diagnosed.

Port Modification App

What is this? What does it do? What doesn’t it do! This handy application allows pilots from all over the ‘verse to directly modify their Hangar and the loadouts of their ships. This fun-filled new option is housed as part of the mobiGlas and AR suite, and is enabled by default when in the Hangar.

Your AR vision will automatically show you interaction points (nodes) in both the Hangar and on your ships.
Nodes are places where you can place decorative items and ships. This is how you will place ships in your Hangar without use of the RSI website.
These nodes appear as blue points with cross hairs. When highlighted, the Port Mod nodes appear as a green circle with text that indicates what kind of node it is.
You can interact with a specific Port Mod Node by highlighting the node you want to use, and Left-Click with your mouse.
This brings up a menu that will show you a range of information. Including all available ships or decorative items that can be placed in that node, and any item or ship already placed that you might wish to remove via the large “X” at the top right of the UI.
If an item exists that would be eligible for the node, but is already in use by another node, the Port Mod App will inform you of the Hangar that your ship or item is currently located.
When viewing ships, the nodes will also indicate places where you can modify components on your ship!
The Port Modification app works in both the Hangar and Crusader!
Changes made in the Hangar will carry over to your Arena Commander simulation sessions, and changes made in Crusader will carry on in the ‘verse from session to session.
*Please note: *The loadouts of the Vanduul Scythe and Glaive ships cannot be modified, as they use proprietary components.

Social Module

mobiGlas now shows both AUEC (Alpha UEC) and UEC in the top right corner of the main mobiGlas page.
Augmented Reality is now on by default.
Chat window is now open by default (Toggle ‘F12’ to open/close window).


The MISC Reliant (Base) has been added as a Hangar-Ready ship.
The Starfarer (Base) and the Starfarer Gemini are now flight-ready, and available for pilots to summon in Crusader.
Ship health has received a balance pass across the board.
Ships that will have seen an increase in health include the Mustang (All), 300i and Freelancer.
Ships that will have seen a decrease in health include the Aurora (All), 325a, 315p, Hornet (all), Gladiator, Vanguard and Constellation Andromeda.
Ship armor and shields are currently going through a review for potential rebalancing, and may experience minor changes.


A new ship weapon has been added to the game in the form of the AMRS PyroBurst Plasma Scattergun.
This Size 3 weapon fires a close-range but wide burst of plasma energy at the target, with a secondary detonation on impact.

First Person:

A whole slew of animation changes have been made to support the new shopping experience.
We have added a slew of new items from armor to civilian clothing that players can obtain and use through the Shopping experience.
Our initial selection of civilian clothing includes five styles of jackets, three different shirt styles (in a wide variety of colors), six styles of pants (also in a wide range of colors), shoes and hats!
We also have familiar Marine and Outlaw armors, flightsuits and the full assortment of FPS weapons.
Added airlock death animation and sound effects.
FPS weapons now function inside of ships with Interior Physics grids. These include the Constellation Andromeda, Retaliator, Starfarer, Vanguard Warden, Freelancer and Cutlass Black.

User Interface:

The keyboard, mouse and gamepad default keybindings have received a massive update to better unify controls between different peripherals and also between flight and FPS modes. You can read more about the philosophy behind the changes on our 2.4.0 Comm Link, but major changes include:

mobiGlas is now on F1 on the Keyboard.
Spacebrake is now on “X” (Keyboard) and “LeftShoulder+B” (Gamepad).
Exit ship/Exit seats is now on “Left Alt+F” (Keyboard) and “LeftShoulder+Y” (Gamepad).
Cycle Countermeasure is now “G” (Keyboard), and “Dpad Down” (Gamepad).
Launch Countermeasures is now Hold+“G” (Keyboard) or Mouse Button 4, “RightShoulder” (Gamepad).
Throttle Min/Thottle Max is now “Backspace” (Keyboard) as a toggle.
Self-Destruct and Force Respawn are now “Right Alt” + Hold “Backspace” (Keyboard), and “LeftShoulder + RightShoulder” + “X” (GamePad).
The keybinding changes are very extensive and we strongly recommend that players review the keybindings in-game.
For those players who desire the old keybind layout, we also have Legacy keybinding profiles available for Gamepad and Keyboard.
These are located in the game menu under Options → Keybindings → Advanced Keybindings → Control Profiles.
“Keyboard Legacy” and “Gamepad Legacy” will have the old pre-2.4.0 keybindings with only minimal updates to prevent conflicts.

Star Citizen Patch 2.5.0 - 25.08.2016

Alpha Patch 2.5.0 has been released and is now available for players! This patch provides access to our GrimHEX outlaw base, new clothing options, new automated landing technology and three new flyable ships – the Reliant KORE, Argo MPUV (Cargo Variant), and Argo MPUV (Passenger Variant). This is all in addition to bug fixes for the rest of our game and content.

Your launcher should show “2.5.0-393743” as the client version. It is strongly recommended that players delete their USER folder for the Live client after patching, particularly if you start encountering any odd character graphical issues or crash on loading. The USER folder can be found (in default installations) at C:\Program Files\Cloud Imperium Games\StarCitizen\Public.

Please review our current list of Patch 2.5.0 Known Issues and take full advantage of our Issue Council area of the Community site to report any bugs you encounter, as well as contribute to other players submissions.

Important Notices:

Exit Seat is now “Hold F” on keyboard and “Hold Y” on gamepad.
This includes beds, seats and chairs.
We will be wiping the persistence database with this patch from 2.4.1 to 2.5.0. All aUEC progress and item purchases will be reset.

New Features
Star Systems:

Crusader Industries would like to alert all pilots to avoid Yela and surrounding asteroid field. Pirates have become increasingly aggressive, and there have been reports returning to us over the past several months of their attempts to lure pilots off course with fake requests for assistance. Crusader Industries believes they are based out of the decommissioned Green Imperial station, however attempts to locate the station have been difficult of late. Please report any suspicious activity, and consider any unidentified craft leaving the asteroid field extremely dangerous.

The people of GrimHEX asteroid station would like to cordially invite the Crusader Industries to QT into the nearest star. There aren’t any pirates operating out of our base and we’re open for business to everyone this economy left in the dust from here to Terra. You’re very welcome to visit and enjoy our fine goods, services and lodgings. Many shops of our shops and services are temporarily closed while we make some repairs from the last group of over-eager “heroes” that came through, but we welcome all comers!

GrimHEX is our new Outlaw base location that can be located by navigating through the Yela asteroid field or via dying/spawning while an Outlaw.
This abandoned Housing Exchange is located in the Yela asteroid field and has been increasingly popular among the criminal element.
Currently featuring a weapons/armor store and clothing store, they’re stocked with items you can’t find at Port Olisar.
GrimHEX will continue to expand with future patches to eventually include a bar, criminal missions and outlaw racing area.
Port Olisar, Crusader
The LiveWire Weapons franchise in Port Olisar is not selling energy weapons and only ballistic weapons can be purchased at this location for the time being.
Outlaw armor sets are available on GrimHEX exclusively, and can no longer be purchased at Garrity Defense.

Game Systems:

Skutters is a small weapon and armor shop on GrimHEX, that just so happens to be specializing in energy weapons for the discerning shopper… who does not ask where they were obtained from.
KC Trending is a new location on GrimHEX station that offers a whole new selection of clothing for the discreet independent pilot. From shoes to hats, they’ve got the latest in underground fashion.

New Landing System!

The first phase of our new landing system has been implemented to provide a simpler, more intuitive landing experience.
This system will grow over the coming releases to ultimately incorporate things like docking and the ability to request/obtain landing authorization via the new Comms System.
Players are now able to enter Landing Mode by simply lowering their landing gear (done by tapping the “N” key on the keyboard).
Landing Mode reduces the speed of the ship down to Precision Mode speed and changes the AR display from regular AR to landing AR.
This flags landing pads as either Valid, Invalid or Recommended.
By default, Valid pads are unobstructed and the correct size for the ship, whereas Invalid pads are either obstructed or the wrong size.
There will only ever be one Recommended pad flagged at any one time, and it’ll normally be the closest Valid pad to the player.
Once over a pad, the player can either land their ship manually or automatically (holding down the “N” key).
This is provided that the Landings Zone offers Automatic Landing service.
A few seconds after touch down, Landing Mode will be disabled and the AR display will return to normal.
A few seconds after taking off, Landing Mode will re-enable for as long as the landing gear is down.
Putting the landing gear away will disable Landing Mode.

Item System 2.0

We have begun converting player and ship items to our new item system. As with the prior, similar updates to ship components, this is largely at the back-end level. Implementing new component class systems, naming conventions and other needed functionality, as well as retrofitting all existing armors and weapons to be compatible. These changes will allow us to implement greater modularity to first-person items. Additionally, this will allow items to interact with one another in a more direct and less “handwavium” simulation, setting the foundation for greater player interaction and future game play mechanics.

This should not affect the function of any in-game items, and changes to player item stats should be minimal.

Player Health System 2.0

We have implemented the first phase of our new player health system!
This includes the implementation of better individual limb damage and health, more granular damage states.
This also lays the groundwork for future features like injury penalties that impact your gameplay experience based upon the damage grade of your body parts.
Player health dolls should now show Normal (Green) health when it reaches 100%-61%, a Hurt (Yellow) state from 60%-41% health, a Damaged (Red) state from 40%-10%, and the Ruined (Dark Red) state at 10%-0%.
Taking a certain level of critical damage limb damage can also cause player death.

Wanted Level System Update

Players with outlaw wanted level who enter Crusader will spawn in GrimHEX.
This also applies to outlaw players who die and respawn in Crusader.
Players with outlaw wanted levels will no longer have Port Olisar as a QT option, and instead will see GrimHEX.


The Reliant KORE, Argo MPUV (Cargo Variant), and Argo MPUV (Passenger Variant) are all now flight ready!
Reliant KORE is available in both Arena Commander and Crusader.
The Argo MPUV is only available in Crusader at this time, as it does not have weapons to defend itself in the Arena Commander simulation.
A new size 5 laser cannon, the M7A, has been introduced!
This is the now part of the Starfarer Gemini’s main turret loadout, as originally intended.

User Interface:
New Keybindings

Added a keybind mapping for X52 Pro HOTAS.

Keybinding Changes

Keyboard and Gamepad

Exit Seat is no longer behind Modifier 1 on any device.
It is now “Hold F” on keyboard and “Hold Y” on gamepad.
This has been given a longer hold time than most – at 1 second you will have to really want to exit your seat.
Landing System toggle and pad selection is no longer there – removed for a manual landing gear deploy retract and autoland.
Deploy landing gear with “N” for keyboard / “B” for gamepad.
Hold these keys while in a landing zone to autoland.

Keyboard Only

Mapped new actions for Cooler Rate Increase / Decrease Throttle
Keyboard binding is “Left Alt + numpad 7/8”
Power Plant throttle moved to be next to the Cooler throttle
Keyboard binding is “Left Alt + numpad 4/5”
(Double tap for max and min)
Removed the Throttle Max and Throttle Min from the double tap “S” and “W” for the default key mapping.
This was done to prevent accidental collisions, however it can still be mapped by the player as they wish.
There is also still the Max / Min toggle on “Backspace” if required.

Updates and Fixes
Star Systems:

Fixed an issue where shadows around Port Olisar would flicker at certain angles and perspectives.
Updated and simplified the Quantum Travel marker names for better readability.
Made some minor visual effects updates to the interior of Port Olisar.

Game Systems:
Arena Commander

Fixed an issue where the decals would disappear off of the landing pads in Free Flight game mode.


Fixed a bug that allowed player characters to slide uncontrollably across landing pads when transitioning out of EVA at speed.
Fixed an issue where EVA animations would stutter when approaching a landing pad.


Fixed an issue where inspecting weapons would cause the users outfit to switch into the standard flight suit regardless of what they were currently wearing.
Fixed an issue where the weapon shops were not correctly recognizing the maximum number of equipped weapons, resulting in a number of problems, including causing some size 3 FPS weapons to disappear.

Social Module

Name-tags for players in Augmented Reality now appear at 25 meters.
Fixed an issue where using the mobiGlas hotkey while in a turret would cause a chain reaction of problems.


Fixed an issue where the CF-007 Bulldog Repeater, CF-117 Badger Repeater, and CF-227 Panther Repeater didn’t slow their rate of fire when running low on energy.
Fixed issues where the missile smoke trail effects could not be seen unless the missile is very close to the viewer.

Individual Ships

Fixed an issue where the engine thruster exhaust effects was displaying circular blurs instead of proper visuals.
Made a number of exit and enter animation improvements for the Avenger Warlock.
Constellation Andromeda
The missile racks for the Constellation Andromeda can no longer be edited by Port Mod.
The side missile racks on the Constellation Andromeda should now target and fire properly.

Star Citizen Alpha 2.6.2 Patch Notes

Wichtige Anmerkungen:

Clients können ab und zu abstürzen, nachdem ein Spieler im PU für fünf Minuten oder mehr untätig war.
Wenn Spieler Crusader, ArcCorp oder MMHC betreten wollen, kann es passieren, dass nach dem Klick auf den Beitreten-Button eine leichte Verzögerung (1-2 Minuten) auftritt, bevor das Spiel lädt.
Dies passiert, da für die entsprechende Region ein neuer Server gestartet wird und es dafür aktuell im Hauptmenü keine Information gibt, welche diese Verzögerung erklärt.

Neue Funktionen
Star Marine

Eine „+25 Kopfschuss“ Belohnung für das Töten eines Spielers per Kopfschuss wurde hinzugefügt.
Das Last Stand Scoreboard zeigt nun die Anzahl der eroberten Kontrollpunkte an.
Gegnerische Spieler, die versuchen, den Spawn-Raum zu betreten, werden nun durch die Raumbarrieren in Last Stand getötet.
Vorläufig wurden das Hinlegen und der Nahkampf deaktiviert.
Hinlegen und Nahkampf wurden für den Moment deaktiviert, da sie zu viele Exploits zuließen.
Wir arbeiten hart an der Behebung dieser Kollisionsexploits und sobald dies geschafft ist, werden diese Features wieder aktiviert.
Last Stand benötigt nun nur noch sechs Spieler, um anzufangen, statt acht.


Die Drake Buccaneer wurde dem Spiel hinzugefügt und für das PU und den Arena Commander aktiviert.

Mega Map

Eine Reihe von Problemen mit dem Spiel-Interface und den Menüs wurden behoben, die auftraten, wenn Monitore auf ein 21:9 Seitenverhältnis eingestellt waren.


Wir haben nun Server in den USA, Europa und Australien!

Ihr könnt vor dem Beitritt zu jeder Mehrspielerinstanz mithilfe einer optionalen Dropdown-Liste auswählen, zu welcher Region Ihr Euch verbinden wollt.

Das Auswählen von „All“ wird Euch momentan normalerweise zu der Region mit der besten Verfügbarkeit verbinden, aber das wird sich ändern, da wir die Funktionalität der regionalen Unterstützung weiter ausbauen und verbessern.

Serielle Variablen

Serielle Variablen ersetzen einige der originalen Aspekte der CryEngine für die Handhabung von Daten (Aspekte und Klassenmitglieder), die vorher von CryEngine NetSerialize Calls serialisiert wurden. Einfach gesagt ist es ein leichteres und performanteres System für den Umgang mit Update-Nachrichten im Netzwerk, mit einem reduzierten Risiko für Update-Verluste während des Caching oder anderer Prozesses – und reduziertem Lag.

Added: New Moons – Aberdeen, Magda, Arial, and Ita and populated them with a handful of outposts.
Added: New Major Landing Zone – Lorville
Lorville is a large city area and as such only has one legal area for landing and port entry. Space above residential and commercial areas are protected by a no-fly zone. Players will be warned when they are entering that zone via HUD warnings, visual indicators, and increasing audio alerts. If they continue into the zone, their ship will be destroyed. The city has a bar with an interactive bartender and a personal equipment shop (Tammany and Sons) that includes an early implementation of the multi-tool. To move around the city, there is a train style transit system and signs to help guide the way.

3.3.0 Notes
New Features
Integrated voice over IP (VOIP) and face over IP (FOIP).
Settings can be accessed via the “comm setting” options menu including basic options and webcam facial calibration along with options to enable head-look tracking. To check if VOIP is active, open the comms section of the mobiGlas and be sure the microphone icon is enabled. VOIP requires the “NUMPAD +” to activate and broadcast to party members, proximity (if in global chat), or via direct calls. A “selfie” camera can be activated to check on FOIP behavior using the “numpad -” key and recalibrated using the “numpad *” key.

Numerous updates to grouping and chat services including a new visor chat interface.
Players can create their own chat on the comms mobiGlas and “tab” between different chats (ie global, party)” on the visor.

Added sliders for general mouse and mouse ADS sensitivity.
Added: Rest stop location – CRU L2
Added the repair/refuel/rearm functionality previously associated with CryAstro to all station landing pads (Port Olisar, Levski, Grimhex) and at Rest Stops. Note: Repair mG function no longer automatically pops up and will need to be manually selected via the service app.
Added: Quantum route planning.
The Starmap now has route planning functionality. To use, plot a final destination via the Starmap (can be any destination, including outposts). Routing will automatically display a series of quantum jumps along with the fuel required. Players will still have to calibrate and spool, but after each jump they will automatically be presented with the next destination in the route without needing to open their Starmap.

Added Teach’s Ship Shop to Levski.
Reached through an elevator in the customs area. You can purchase a ship via interacting with ships on the shop floor (similar to store displays). Ships on the shop floor can be opened and explored, but not flown. All purchased ships come with insurance.

Added: Mission giver Recco Battaglia.
A former miner, Recco can be found in a side-hall on the lower floor at Levski and organizes resource needs for the base.

Added: Asteroid mining.
Mineable resources can now be found in the asteroid belt around Yela and Delamar.

Added “Scramble Race” style missions.
Scramble races are death races using ships in space and using vehicles (Ursa/Cyclone) or Gravlev bikes (Nox/Dragonfly) on moons. Races use a checkpoint system with each player who shoots (ships) or moves over/near (vehicles) a checkpoint accruing a point toward victory. Additionally, players can destroy race leaders to gain their points. Races have a registration period after accepting the mission, giving some time for others to register, and a travel period for players to make their way to the start line. Planetary surface races are located reasonably close to outposts for ease of travel and spawning vehicles.

Ships and Vehicles
Added: Cyclone TR, AA, and RC.
The Cyclone TR includes a rear gunner position, meant for combating infantry and ground vehicles. The AA has missiles and an EMP for dealing with threats from above. The RC is a racing variant with boost functionality.

Added: RSI Constellation Phoenix.
Added: Aegis Hammerhead.
Added: Anvil Valkyrie
Coolers now use power, perform according to power, and can be overclocked.
The Quantum Drive now performs according to its power state including faster spooling/calibration based on power and the ability to be overclocked.
Turret gyrostabilization can now be toggled via an interaction node as well as a hotkey “G”.
Power target level can now be set independently for each item on the ship MFDs, allowing them to be manually over or under-powered.
Added Hurston Dynamics Dominance and Attrition series ship weapons.
Available in sizes 1 – 3, the Dominance series are high quality scatterguns that fire more pellets as they build up heat. The Attrition series, available in sizes 1 – 6, are laser repeaters that deal higher damage, via increased fire rate, the hotter the weapon gets. Both weapons can be purchased at GrimHex Dumper’s Depot.

Quantum drives now have a maximum range per jump that varies depending on the size of the drive
Added FPS combat AI.
Available as a mission to Security Post Kareah.

Added motion warping to allow sliding during vaulting depending on the object/destination.
Added: Kastak Arms Karna assault rifle (available at Live Fire and Skutters).
Kiosks, the PMA, and the VMA all now have functioning item previews.
Arena Commander
Added Arena Commander in-game rental system
