"Sphere of Influence" is now part of the normal level progression found in the journal under Solanae Dyson Sphere.
Player must be level 50 to play the mission.
The free Obelisk is no longer available.
The other rewards that were available from its initial playthrough and from replaying it are still available.
Along with "Sphere of Influence", other Dyson Sphere missions can be found in this part of the journal:
Circles Within Circles, Supply Woes, The Contested Zone, The Omega Standoff, and Tower Control.
Spire Fleet Holding:
Spire fleet holding now includes a ship vendor unlock at T1.
The Fleet Chimera Heavy Destroyer now comes equipped with the Dynamic Tactical System console.
The Fleet Peghqu' Heavy Destroyer now comes equipped with the Dynamic Tactical System console.
The Fleet Daeinos Warbird Destroyer now comes equipped with the Dynamic Tactical System console.
Captains will need to be level 50 to leave the Fleet Spire and enter the Allied Space Adventure Zone.
Solanae Dyson Sphere Adventure Zone:
The U.S.S. Tesla in the Contested Zone (Mission: Salvage) has had its location and waypoint adjusted slightly to move it away from some ambient spawns and help solo players avoid encounters scoped for larger groups of players.
The I.K.S. Korcha in the Contested Zone (Mission: Salvage) has had its location and waypoint adjusted slightly to move it away from some ambient spawns and help solo players avoid encounters scoped for larger groups of players.
"Secure Voth Points" - Mission tells you to turn it in to Commander Kaol instead of Commander Arnold.
When reinforcements spawn in at control towers in the Contested Zone only one notification gets sent instead of five.
Moved the respawn point in the Wasteland Neighborhood a bit further away from the control tower.
Solanae Dyson Sphere Battlezone:
Battlezone daily mission - Generator point 4 in the park will now count towards completion of the mission.
"Summon Reinforcements" mission - Reduced the amount needed from a count of 20 to a count of 5. This means that ensigns go from being worth 5% to being worth 20%.
Lieutenants and above will automatically complete the mission
Taking a shuttle from the Klingon player starbase to the embassy now puts the player in the shuttle bay of the embassy.
The proper cooldowns are now in place for The Breach and Storming the Spire for both normal and elite versions.
Trait - Sure Footed:
Resolved an issue where many characters were gaining the benefits of Sure Footed while crouching or aiming without slotting Sure Footed as a trait.
Fixed a description error on Elite Obelisk Swarmers (Hangar Pets) that indicated they have Attack Pattern Beta. They do not possess this ability.
This is a text change only.
Resolved an issue that was causing Tetryon Beam Arrays to deal less damage than intended while enhanced with Fire-at-Will.
This applies to players and NPCs.
Resolved an issue that was allowing Fire-at-Will to apply certain enhancements twice per activation or firing cycle.
Resolved an issue that was causing certain powers to never apply Critical Severity to successful Critical hits such as when using Fire at Will.
Voth Aceton Field Generator Console
Fixed a tooltip error on Voth Aceton Mode that was causing it to state that its maximum damage was far lower than it actually is.
The Subsystem power drain aspect of Voth Aceton Mode now benefits slightly more from Flow Capacitors skill.
Tholian Mines (deployed by EV-Suit Tholians on the Ground) now draw fire from NPCs.
The FX light attached to the activation of the Romulan Combat Environmental Suit (Vet bonus) now emits from the correct location on the helmet.
The Expertise cost of upgrading the Fleet Embassy, Fleet Dilithium Mine and Fleet Spire from T2 to T3 has been reduced to 10% of the previous value. (25,000,000 to 2,500,000).
The team-wide Dodge and Avoidance bonuses provided by Team Ambush Field no longer stack between multiple instances of the Set Bonus. Only the highest Mk set will provide the bonus to a player's team.
The team-wide Dodge and Avoidance bonuses provided by the Bridge Officer Trait "Veteran" no longer stack. Only a single "Veteran" bonus will provide to the Team.
The Stealth portion of Distortion Field (Omega Force 2pc Set Bonus) is now cancelled by outgoing actions which put you into Red Alert.
The Resistance buff will persist for the full 10 seconds, even if the Stealth is cancelled.
"Assign Raiding Party" may now only be activated while in Sector Space.
The effects did not carry from Ground maps to Space maps, so being able to use it elsewhere only allowed a player to waste their cooldown.
A few versions of Phased Tetryon Dual Cannons and Dual Heavy Cannons that were previously unusable on Warbirds now work correctly.
Voth Palisade Science Vessel and Voth Bastion Deck Cruiser can now choose to have no prefix when renaming.
The Summer Event project can now be cancelled and is also repeatable.
Added another event reputation project slot to accommodate the winter event.
Re-added the Undo and Redo buttons to the tailor and character creator.
The background images for windows such as banks, mail, exchange, and some mission themed windows have been improved.
Increased the number of fleet members displayed on the roster page from 10 to 50.
The exchange will now show the price per unit of a stack of items rounded up to the nearest integer.
Removed the sort by expire time options, because the information is unlisted.
Relabeled all the sort options.
The labels now specify if the sort is ascending or descending.
Removed the "then Name" from the sorting option labels.
The frame around Duty Officer portraits in the Exchange will reflect the allegiance of the Duty Officer.
The Snowblower may not appear on characters with old costumes such as the Omega and MACO sets.
If this is the case, rebuild the costume in the Tailor and the Snowblower should appear correctly.
The Crystalline Entity may flicker from far distances in Crystalline Catastrophe.
Some KDF captains are not able to switch to all costume slots.
Fleet Tactician Trait is not granting the correct resistance to slow to the player or team the player is on.
