so the start was mixed with some feelings and where we appreciate positive feedback (even if it is natural less than negative) we want to hear you out and fix it!
Weather / Gravity / Degredation is too hard!
Background: we thought of making it insane hard… the result: too hard for you. Now maybe I go ahead and make a super crazy insane SP scenario but we don’t want to screw you guys.
So after the latest update restart what we got is:
- weather difficulty in dedicated.yaml set to: Normal -> before was set to Hard. Also duration of some deadly weather effects reduced
- Degredation (Durability) in dedicated.yaml set to: Normal -> before was set to Hard
- Gravity on some planets reduced (Homeworld)
Donator planet indestructible terrain. Wtf?!
The idea was discussed on over 150 comments -> [POLL] What do you think about... performance and moles
Performance it was all about. Especially on PvE restricted planets we set it to indestructible because, why not? You have auto miner and you can build there in peace, you have a whole planet to seek flat land.
But well, we are not stubborn and changed it for some people already to destructible.
If you want YOUR donator planet to destructible terrain write me a PM!
Loosing Credits AND Reputation on death? Kidding me?!?
Well, again an old topic and initially because of ammo draining implemented. We still think dying should not be your normal gameplay or easy Plan B but we also see that all the survival aspects causes now more deaths so we changed it:
You lose NO credits anymore when you die
You lose 1 RP every 10 deaths now (before on every death)
Auto Miner Cores are harder too find than my car keys!
We kind of promised you that with the OAM fuel change to Auto Miner Cores there will be plenty. Though a bit dependend on luck you get them in POIs. Now what is new and could break it is the POI difficulty with super high tech advanced super turrets. So the risk = reward might not be properly.
There are currently also few PDA missions which give you AM Cores as a reward but
New dedicated Auto Miner Core Missions will be implemented on each planet in the Homeworld system!
This will include both PDA and Portal missions.
The Mission Portal cooldown won’t be too high, no worry. But there you get ported to a world rich on AM Cores but still with a realistic threat.
Last but not least check out the market. Both Blackmarket and the normal Marketplace.
There might be now and then good AM Core deals.
The rest of complains are under observation. A lot of cries are regarding Origin differences. For example Hunter need to fly a long way till ECC but Trader are straight near it.
But we told you each Origin has advantages and disadvantages. You made your choice.
However there are some special portals planned from “south” to “north” etc.
Everything is new guys and we worked HARD on setting everything up. Bare with us if we didn’t think everything through perfectly. But we listen and are able to adjust.
Hopefully you don’t forget this in your rage rain.
Alright, I hope you enjoy HWS 6 a lot more now and thanks for all the (rare) positive feedback so far!
Motivates us to continue!
