Player Cities Edit

The number of Player Cities has currently been doubled, making the caps to 20 for all planets that are currently 10 and 50 for all planets that are currently at 25. The new limits are as follows (The first number is the total cap. The second is how many can be rank 3 or above. The third is how many can grow to rank 4 or above.):

  • Corellia: 20, 15, 10
  • Dantooine: 50, 30, 20
  • Lok: 50, 30, 20
  • Naboo: 20, 15, 10

Content Edit

  • The Nightsister cave has been added to the game world.
  • Added various heralds throughout the world to lead players to dungeons.
  • There will now be a chance for boss type creatures to spawn from mission targets.

Creatures Edit

  • Creature Balance: All creatures in the game have been balanced under one unifying scheme.
  • Creature Handler: The creature handler profession has been re-organized. Among the many changes are: The "control level" skillmod has been removed. You can call any pet up to the limit of your additional pets skillmod, but no more levels at one time than your "tame level" skillmod. The tame level skillmod also determines the maximum level pet you can call or tame. The Tame Level skillmod has been redistributed throughout the tree, so only master creature handlers can call the highest level pets. The Transfer command has moved to the Master Creature Handler skillbox. The "train as mount" ability has moved to Management IV. See below for further details.
  • Creature Trade-In Program: With the Creature Handler changes that are going into effect, players with pets from levels 10-15 will no long be usable, there will be a pet trade-in program. In many cases, you will have a reduced version of the pet. In some cases, your pet will be a different creature.

  • Add a "Points of Interest" tab. This tab holds a list of waypoints to interesting places on the current planet.

Full patch listing Edit

SWG Client Version: 65956.67838

General

  • Improved client stability
  • Improved server stability

Badges

  • New exploration badges have been added throughout the galaxy.
  • Badges will be awarded for achieving Master Titles (and you keep the badge even if you revoke the skill).

Bio Engineer

  • New Cloning System implemented (Creature level is now fully dependent on final creature stats. Stats are fully dependent on level of DNA samples used. Gnort DNA will create Gnort-like creatures, Rancor DNA-will create Rancor-like creatures, etc.).

Character

  • Added heal self and heal other animations to kneeling posture.
  • Disallowed use of /wookieeRoar if the resulting pool drain would cause the user to become incapacitated.
  • Make Attribute mods due to food, spice, etc, not incapacitate players.

Chef

  • The Terratta food schematic will now download to your crafting tool.

Combat

  • Made it so if two players are fighting and both /peace, combat will end (previously the player who /peaced first had to do it again for combat to end).
  • Added to-hit bonus for melee vs. ranged weapon attacks. This is a replacement for the damage multipliers and a sub-feature for the damage mitigation addition. If you use a ranged weapon against a melee combatant, you are easier to hit.
  • Damage-over-time (DoT) effects (bleeding, poison, etc.) will no longer cause pets to randomly aggro on nearby PvP enemies.
  • Players now get a TEF when using DoTs (poisons, disease, etc).
  • Performance buffs now modify the players base attribute not their current max attribute.
  • Added melee/ranged damage mitigation 1-3 abilities. These abilities are spread through the elite professions and will limit the damage ranges that can be done to you. If an NPC/Creature attacker does 1-100 points of damage, is using a melee weapon, and you have damage mitigation 3, the actual damage range that can be done to you is actually 1-40. There are 3 damage mitigation abilities for ranged, and 3 for melee. They do not stack.
  • Fixed a problem where not every target was getting the appropriate messaging from an area of effect combat medic DoT attack.
  • Neutral players can no longer drag incapacitated players that have a TEF. Dragging a TEF'd player can result in the TEF being passed along to the player doing the dragging.
  • Added the standard PvP checks for dragging an incapacitated player. This means that you can only drag a player in the same cases that you could heal him.
  • Added full body standing ranged combat animations for Ewoks
  • Corrected standing ranged combat weapons for Hutts.
  • Creatures and NPCs will no longer be able to poison or disease vehicles and droids.
  • DECLARED players will be set to COVERT when they logout, and set back to DECLARED 60 seconds after the next time they login. (Preventing attacks during Login/Logoff)

  • Fix for 1pt general combat xp when specific combat xp types are capped
  • AI will now "see" a player that stands up from Incapacitation and may attack (including Feign Incapacitation).
  • Fixed a bug with training mobs that flee from private structures, which caused them to move very slowly afterwards.

Creature Handler

  • The creature handler skill tree has been re-organized: The "control level" skillmod has been removed. You can call any pet up to the limit of your additional pets skillmod, but no more levels at one time than your "tame level" skillmod. The tame level skillmod also determines the maximum level pet you can call or tame. The Tame Level skillmod has been redistributed throughout the tree, so only master creature handlers can call the highest level pets.
  • The Transfer command has moved to the Master Creature Handler skillbox. The "train as mount" ability has moved to Management IV.
  • Creature Handlers will only receive 1 xp for using a pet to kill something less than half the level of the pet.
  • Using baby high-level creatures to kill low-level creatures will result in less xp being granted than previously. For purposes of determining xp only, the creature's level will be considered to be no less than half of the creature's adult level. e.g. A baby gurreck was previously considered to be a level 5 creature even though an adult gurreck is level 50. Now a baby gurrek will be considered to be level 25 minimum, which will eventually increase as the pet grows until it has reached its adult level.
  • XP awarded to Creature Handlers when their pet kills something will be divided by the current number of active pets.
  • All currently tamable creatures remain at the same chance of spawning.
  • Some new tamable creatures were added with the same chance of spawning as current ones.

  • Sometimes (rarely) lairs will spawn more than the current max of 2 babies.

Creature Trade-In Program

Player get attached to their pets, players will be able to visit Creature Handler NPC's and get a device to drag to the datapad. The device will transform their pets, carrying over it's name and commands to the new pet. The new pet will be of the same type, but of the correct level. Your favorite pet will stay your favorite pet :)

  • The number of Player Cities has currently been doubled, making the caps to 20 for all planets that are currently 10 and 50 for all planets that are currently at 25.
  • The new limits are as follows (The first number is the total cap. The second is how many can be rank 3 or above. The third is how many can grow to rank 4 or above.):

  • Since we are increasing the city caps, we need to control on the amount of additional structures the world has to support. There is a civic structure cap of 1+(6*city rank). I.e. 7 at rank 1, 13 at rank 2, etc. Civic structures include cloning facilities, shuttleports, the city hall, and gardens - - Structures owned by the city.
