General:

  • Players that have had issues purchasing Spiral Wave Disruptors, Jem'Hadar Attack Pets, or any other limited item should no longer experience these issues.
  • Carrier Command UI
    • Resolved the issue that was causing the following pets to replace instead of back fill:
      • Tholian Mesh Weavers
      • Jem'Hadar Attack Ships
      • Fer'jai Frigates
      • Bird of Prey Raiders
      • Marauding Force
      • Stalker Fighters
    • Tholian Mesh Weavers
      • Their cooldown reduced from 50 seconds to 30 seconds on Attack Pattern Beta.
      • They are more likely to use their Drain Torpedo when it comes off of cooldown.
    • All pets will be far less likely to engage enemies beyond a range of 12km
      • Unless those enemies have also actively damaged their owner's Carrier.
    • All pets are now more responsive while under Escort command. This includes upgrades to their behavior that controls:
      • Targeting enemies that have damaged their Escort target, preferring targets that have also attacked their owner's Carrier, and ignoring orders that tell them to escort themselves or fellow hangar pets.
    • All pets will now ignore enemies beyond 12km while under Intercept command, regardless of their combat activities.
      • This allows them to more accurately intercept incoming mines, torpedoes and small craft heading for their owner Carrier.
    • Resolved a logic loophole with the new Recall functionality that allowed pets to occasionally stop responding to subsequent commands.
    • Duty Officers that rely upon Intercept, Escort and Recall commands being issued will now work correctly with Jem'Hadar Attack Ships, Bird-of-Prey Raiders, Syphon Drones and Shield Repair Drones.
    • The AI routines of Shield Repair Drones have entirely new, and more responsive, set of command behaviors to follow
      • For these pets, Intercept and Attack set these pets to sort of an "auto-heal" mode.
      • Use Escort for increased control of their support features.
    • The AI routines of Bird-of-Prey Raiders have been improved to include more well-defined Strafing Runs.
      • These pets only have a chance to enter into this behavior every several seconds, and will not perform them constantly.
  • Risian Lohlunat Pearl Bundles and Fohlunat Favor Bundles now indicate that they will only be available for a limited time, and that they will be removed from the Summer Event store on August 31, 2013.
  • Andorian phaser weapons have had their audio updated to sound more unique.
  • Updated another instance of corvette that was using a capital "C".
  • The Aquarius should no longer appear at 4 times its intended size when launched from an Odyssey.
  • The Best Defense:
    • All commands for your fighter allies should now work properly
  • The power icon for Marauding Force hangar pets has been updated to be consistent with other hangar pet powers.
    • The Hangar UI icon for marauder shuttles would be a square.
  • Added a Romulan EMH Duty Officer portrait.
  • Server Stability Updates

  • Thalaron Pulse will no longer force players within its attack radius to lose control of their ship.
  • Turret Fabrication IV will now correctly fabricate a Tier 4 Turret when used by a Romulan Player.
  • Sensor Analysis no longer forces the player into red alert.
  • Tour the Galaxy: Some mission timers were set to start on completion of a mission rather on start, they are all set to start on completion of the mission.


Costumes:

  • Slightly updated the Romulan Veteran Female Jacket texture.
  • Several issues with proper fit of the Romulan Veteran Female Jacket have been resolved.
