Server Maintenance

Comments Off on Server Maintenance
We're planning to do some server migrations on Thursday and Friday evenings (September 12th and 13th, Central time), so there may be some related outages while we bring online some major infrastructure upgrades.Thursday should be primarily related to the game website, and only impact new account creation, billing and some other areas, while leaving gameplay unaffected.As always, we'll endeavor to keep these outages as brief as possible.

Mining Changes

Comments Off on Mining Changes
Tonight's update is entirely server-side, and is a very small tweak to the algorithm that controls how quickly asteroids will heat up, and cool down.There have been some long-standing exploitative issues that have recently been coming to light, wherein particular mining beam and asteroid combinations could yield situations where the asteroid would be mine-able indefinitely (never heating up).The mathematical model that governs the thermal properties of our asteroids is somewhat complex, so we've made the smallest and most minimally-invasive change to the algorithm that we can, removing only cases where the efficiency of certain beams and the lightly-randomized thermal properties of certain asteroids could interact in a nonsensical way.This was an important issue for us to fix, particularly as we approach the Universe Redux and the potential for new ores and minerals, along with vastly greater quantities and types of asteroids. We don't want the underpinnings of a production-driven economy to have any issues like this.If people run into other unexpected mining behaviour in the future, please let us know via a Support Ticket (if exploitable) or a forum Bug Report (if not). As always, exploitation of a flawed game mechanic is grounds for administrative action, so please, make the game better and more balanced for everyone, and report the issue.Thanks everyone, have a great weekend!

Vendetta Online 1.8.491 and NPC fixes.

Comments Off on Vendetta Online 1.8.491 and NPC fixes.
Tonight's update is largely server-side, and should fix a lot of the "aggro" problems with NPCs. Please continue to report any issues you see on the Bugs forum.- Hive Queen escorts ("Retinue") will now aggro properly when you attack the Queen, or when you attack any respective escort. We may further bump their aggression, but for now we're just trying to fix the problem.- General issues with NPCs "running away" after being attacked should now be resolved. You can aggro many NPCs onto yourself by attacking them.Again, we're looking to add more interesting behaviour, but right now this is just intended to "make sure we've fixed the known issues" before changing things further.VO 1.8.491, last week, included:- Added 64bit support for Android, requires App Store update.- Fixed crash on exit for Android when Voice Chat is enabled and disabled.Some of the visible changes recently haven't been the most exciting (like 64bit Android), but we've had some external deadlines that needed to be met, like Google mandating a hard requirement for 64-bit Android apps in August. Normally, something that would be trivial for us, but because of an external library requirement, it became something that required a bit more time and planning to come together.We intend to push a variety of mobile updates over the next month, bringing the mobile versions "up to date" for another lengthy period of time, while also hopefully streamlining the introductory experiences for new players, as well as rolling out a lot of engine improvements to mobile.There are also other major projects and server-side developments that more directly impact gameplay, which are slated for the near-term. All in all we hope to see a few different areas of content be updated or improved in the near future. Stay tuned!

Vendetta Online 1.8.490

Comments Off on Vendetta Online 1.8.490
VO 1.8.490 includes (06/28/19):- Aim and Throttle touch regions now have variable sensitivity, with a separate bar that may be adjusted for each field to raise or lower the control sensivity levels.- Default sensitivity settings for Aim and Throttle touch regions have been improved. To restore classic functionality, set the sensitivity levels to 2x in Controls -> Touch.- Aim and Throttle touch regions are now optionally set inwards a little to reduce the chance that the Android Menu bar is activated. Enabled by default for phone form factor devices.- Sensor Notification is now enabled by default for new users, and set to "Player Only".- Changed "entered the sector" sensor notification text "entered your radar range".- The "Touch" tab is now selected by default on Touch platforms, when entering the Controls menu.- Renamed and moved various Interface HUD touch settings to Controls -> Touch.- Fixed issue with Field of View not being fully restored when entering sectors using First-person Cinematic Camera Mode.- Fixed issue with Text To Speech volume control not functioning properly on Oculus Go.Basically, this may be the biggest single improvement in mobile/touch game usability that we've made in a long time. It covers a number of areas, including the discovery of a long-standing bug in the touch control UI, and a lot of small improvements to help people configure things to best suit their particular play style.No, we have not integrated a fully-configurable UX yet (a-la DroidButtons), but this should at least be a big help in the meantime.If you run across any bugs, please post them to the Bugs forum. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Vendetta Online 1.8.489

Comments Off on Vendetta Online 1.8.489
VO 1.8.489 includes (06/21/19):- Drain Mines have been buffed from 250 to 1500 in power-drain impact.- Violating NFZ six times in a 24h period, with a single faction, causes Temp KOS for 24 hours for that faction. Corvus is excluded from this.- Text To Speech volume control now works on Oculus Go.- Guild and Group members are now tagged as friendly on the radar.- Text colors are now configurable by skins with a custom config.ini file located in the skin's directory.- Capship Swarm Turrets have been nerfed from 25 to 35 grid power, to limit combative power against planned higher-level NPCs.The capship adjustment at the end is pretty controversial, understandably so. However, it's already been said that Capship-v-Capship gameplay is not yet implemented, and the current loadouts are overpowered, which is going to cause problems in the rollout of new PvE goals (basically, creating far too much of an advantage for capship ownership). So, as with any set of major changes or updates, you can expect other things to be adjusted.It doesn't mean anyone will be left defenseless, or that people's investment in their capship will be devalued. If anything, the value will increase in time. But, adjustments will be made throughout the process of change. It's been some years since we've had major gameplay updates, and some newer players aren't familiar with the process: Don't stress out too much, we'll get through it, and the game will be far better and more interesting as a result.
