Good Morning HWS Community,
incredible 3 last days. “Morphy’s Law” is describing my situation overall pretty good.
With bugs, internet outage (good that I don’t host HWS at home…), and things I just couldn’t make in time.
No time to bother though, let me quickly announce few things.
OCD issues after the full wipe
Back in the days, with the full wipe from HWS 10 to 11 we announced that the OCD categories got changed by factor 10. Some players had 50 Alien Cores in one slot for example. It is now 5.
I said that those players keep their 50 AC in their slow but can pull from the OCD and not put until they have less than 5.
What I missed and failed to proper deliver to Jascha was, that this “deal” was originally only intended for the HWS 11 season.
So with HWS 12 now it got activated.
Sorry for that!
Now let me proper announce it this time:
For HWS 13(!) the slot sizes will be forced. Please make sure to split your overlimit slot items to match the OCD Category slot size
This is for the next season. You have ~90 days time doing it and Jascha restored all of the losses you had 3 days ago.
As I said yesterday: sorry for the wait!
Today ALL Supporter playfields will be implemented during the 5pm restart (EU) and 11pm restart (NA)! Promise!
We found the issue and trying to hotfix it manually per player.
If you can’t login to the server anymore because “debug.yaml” files are “missing”, please let us know your ingame name and on what playfield you were before it happened.
Warp issues, Playfield issues
I don’t know why yet. It would help if you could let me know on what server and what playfield name it happened.
Also it helps for the future if you always say “it was the fixed universe or random universe”.
Fixed = our HWS universe in the center (from HWS 11)
Random = All other Stars around. Mostly tagged with [E-xxx] or [P-xxx].
Big Bang Universe Layout
I already explained it in the previous announcement but one detail I forgot you figured out yourself already I think.
[E-xxx] are PvE Stars.
[P-xxx] are PvP Stars.
The xxx represent the majority of that Resource located in that star.
For example P-Pen means there is more Pentaxid than other resources.
[P-xxx] have also only Class 2 planets.
HWS Connect Issues
There were two things happening here.
The reset didn’t work on the first day. This caused for one the problem that your HWS Skill Tree did not get reset but on top of it, that you had 50 Skill Points still, which got pumped into the new Skill Tree. We try to clean this up today.
The HWS Marketplace offers did not get reset. Only 1 day later, which also wiped some offers from fast traders. Don’t know if I can restore those by crawling the backup. Best to let me know what you lost, so I can search for that precisely.
HWS Feature set
Last but not least our HWS Features will be (re) activated step by step.
The Discovery feature is already greatly used. Good job Explorers!
The CONQUER feature on GG will be activated today/tomorrow.
The PvP Scan and settle feature tomorrow latest.
Global limits will be also a little bit increased.
The new Supporter Packages like private Supergates and Tokens come a bit later due coding needed.
This was another WIP which didn’t make it 100% in.
My initial idea with the Galaxy was to generate more (mid-late) game content. Especially since you have those Teleporters yourself now, it would become too easy to transport (trade) 50 000’ items from A to B with those millions of Volume Capacity in your backpack.
That means taking more Volume values into the game you must consider and adjusting some templates.
During that, some Vanilla values got merged into my Config, so it is currently a bit too strict.
Vanilla Volume just does not work well for MP.
I try to fix (increase) the values ASAP.
Lastly (new) Events for the weekend.
Once again sorry for the start troubles but working on it!
Have nevertheless a great start in the new HWS 12 season!
Your HWS Team
