TRIBBLE Maintenance and Release Notes - May 1, 2013
 
We will be bringing TRIBBLE down to update to a new build.
ST.30.20130429a.4

General:
  • Romulans now beam out of character selection using the correct beam out effect.
  • The bank, mail, exchange, and crafting consoles at New Romulus Command can now be used by multiple players at once.
  • Updated more textures all over!
    • Replaced missing or invisible Atmospheres.
      • Most noticeably, Earth's.
    • Should resolve game client crashes complaining about missing 64x64 Textures.
  • Sela now has a cape.
    • She'll be starring in a 3-part miniseries on the Elements Network (Entertainment for Romulan Women) called "How Sela Got Her Cape Back".
      • It's a feel-good story about women's empowerment and the importance of a good wardrobe for military leaders.
      • She is so sure of its commercial and critical success she has already greenlit the sequel "How Sela Got Her Cape Back Two: Romulan Boogaloo".
  • Changed Rank display name for Romulans to be Citizens at low level, and replaced Rear Admirals with Subadmirals.
  • Foundry: It's once again possible to use custom costumes with Dialogs, Contacts, and Critters.
  • Resolved an issue that occasionally caused the game client to crash when changing maps.

Missions:
  • The introductory Romulan cutscene has been made even more awesome.
    • Also made skippable, and rewatchable from the "News of the World" console on the way to the farm.
  • Price of Neutrality:
    • Changed the name of the system from Ajilon to Chaltok.
    • Added voice over throughout.
    • Added backgrounds to various dialog windows.
  • Gasko Blues:
    • Updated text to resolve typos and provide additional clarity in instructions and general flow.
    • Added some voice-over.
    • Changed space encounters in space section to be a bit easier and ramp up more gradually.
    • Added an animation when interacting with the console to open the prisoner cells.
  • The Search for New Romulus:
    • Beefed up the final space boss fight.
    • Increased the size of the waypoint for "Observe the Bridge".
    • The Eppohs should now be easier to interact with, and will flee from the player after being scanned.
    • Updated the space beacons so they only give credit once per team.
    • Updated final ground boss fight to be less ridiculously hard.
    • Updated the text to address typos and make dialog flow better.
  • Crossroads at Crateris:
    • Made it less likely for Slamek to spawn inside the wall and get stuck.
    • Added some voice over.
  • Mind Game: Updated the text to resolve typos and improve general flow.
  • Turning Point: Players on a team will no longer be disconnected when beginning the Unwanted Visitors objective.

Systems:
  • The [Trans] modifier found on Mk XI and XII Warp Cores now actually reduces the cooldown of transwarp abilities by 50%, rather than the 35% it was giving before.
  • Romulan Cloak: Increased this power's recharge time from 20 seconds to 40 seconds.
  • Romulan Battle Cloak: Increased this power's recharge time from 20 seconds to 40 seconds.
  • Romulan Cloaking and Singularity powers share a 5 second global cooldown.
  • Singularity updates:
    • All Singularity Powers now have a 30 second recharge time.
      • This recharge time is not shared between the powers.
      • This will prevent the same power from being used back to back in certain circumstances.
    • The cooldown on building Singularity energy after using a Singularity Power now scales with the level of the Singularity Power used.
      • The cooldown's duration ranges from 40 seconds, at Level 1 Singularity, to 60 seconds, at Level 5 Singularity.
    • Increased base time in seconds to reach level 5 Singularity from level 0 Singularity from 40 to 60.
    • Singularity Jump: Resolved an issue in the rank 5 version of this power that caused the duration of the Singularity effect to last longer than intended.
    • Warp Shadow:
      • The summoned Warp Shadows will now actively move around and generate additional threat on a single target, in addition to the large threat they normally generate.
      • After 19.5 seconds the player will correctly cloak.
    • Singularity Overcharge:
      • This power is now useable while cloaking.
      • Activating this power while cloaked will deactivate your cloak.

UI:
  • Resolved an issue where clicking on a skill level instead of using the increase or decrease buttons didn't properly refresh the skill window.
  • Added a respec reputations button to the reputation UI, and a field that shows the number of reputation respecs the player has.
  • Reverted display changes from previous update to stats display in the character status window.
  • Corrected a minor issue in the traits window in which it would display the wrong portrait and species name with your ship selected.
  • The skills and traits window now show your captain's skills and traits if you have a ship selected.
  • The respec window now shows the correct pips for each captain rank.
  • Bridge Officer traits now display correctly in the Trait UI.
  • Romulans will now display "Ally of the Federation" or "Ally of the Klingon Empire" on the character selection screen if they have allied with a faction
  • The chat window will now remember its minimized state between map changes.

Known Issues:
  • The Klingon Mission Journal is currently being re-worked and some missions may not yet be available to existing Klingons.
  • Neither Klingons nor Romulans are available for new characters.
    • A small number of participants can now create Romulans as part of a closed beta.
  • The C-store is disabled.
  • Players on Wine will need to use a workaround in order to play.

Damn, now I have to go create a new Romulan. It.'s a tough job being a beta tester, but somebody's gotta do it.

Well, to summarize, big nerf on everything Romulan it seems. :confused:

So, Sela is a Romulan TV star now. What other shows do they have ? If I know any, you ask ?

Desperate Empresses !

The Walking Fed !

The Big Singularity Theory !

The Joy of Cooking Epohhs !

:D

C'mon, honestly - was the change to the Rom cloaks because too many folks that never flew a BoP were killing themselves? :)

naevius 05-01-2013 04:56 PM

Hmmm... anything on the vanishing Boff skills or Boffs leaving their stations?

erocker 05-01-2013 04:57 PM

Any word on the Bridge Officer space reset bug? I'm constantly having to reset my boffs almost every time I switch maps in space.
