Dyson Joint Command reputation:
Added a Tier 5 mission "Unsaid Thanks".
Completing this mission will reward players with 750 Dyson Marks; 5 Voth Cybernetic Implants; 32,000 Dilithium Ore; 40,000 Energy Credits; a large amount of Expertise, and a special reward.
Players who have already reached Tier 5 will automatically be granted the mission "Unsaid Thanks" upon logging in.
If you don't see this mission and have already reached Titer 5, interacting with the Reputation System in some way should grant you the mission.
Even something as simple as slotting any project then canceling it will trigger the projects to appear.
A Voth Heavy Fighter shuttle has been added to the Lobi store.
More details about it can be found in
this Dev Blog
A Voth Heavy Fighter vanity pet has been added to the Lobi store.
This does not come on the playable Voth Heavy Fighter and must be purchased separately.
The Duty Officer Roster Slots cap has been increased from 400 to 500 slots.
You can purchase additional slots in increments of 25 or 100 through the in-game C-Store.
There is now a special event filter in PVE options:
This would be for special events such as the Winter Invasion.
Rewards for special events also display a new Reward icon in the PVE queue window.
The Obelisk Carrier can now be purchased after unlocking Tier 1 for the Fleet Spire.
Resolved an issue where the Klingon fleet spire duty officer store was selling Federation duty officers.
Resolved some issues with the Voth Elite Armor:
Chest gear and visor glow effects now work.
Visor now shows correctly for Gorn.
Choosing to skip the Klingon tutorial now correctly grants disruptor based weapons as the reward.
Fire At Will:
Resolved an issue that was incorrectly disabling Power Drain on all non-Phaser types of energy weapons.
Resolved an issue that was causing Fire At Will to drain power for only a single activation pulse, instead of over the entire firing cycle.
This was causing it to appear, for certain well-geared ships, as though no power was being drained, when it was actually just regenerating very quickly.
This fix now causes the Energy Drain to behave the same as a standard Beam firing cycle - it remains drained for all 5 firing pulses, then returns after the weapon stops firing.
Resolved an issue with the Romulan ship in sector space after completing "Sphere of Influence" which was causing it to spawn and despawn rapidly.
Resolved an issue that was preventing players at certain level ranges from being able to use the weapons they received from Special Equipment Pack - Voth Antiproton Weapons:
Players at all level ranges will now receive an item they can use when opening these packages.
Audio is now present for the ramps unlocked with Fleet Spire Special project - Omega Molecule Research.
Solanae Dyson Sphere Adventure Zone:
You can now earn 1 Commendation every 20 hours from any of the following content:
"The Breach" queued event.
"Storming the Spire" queued event.
Completion of a qualified Dyson Sphere Battlezone mission.
Completion of any one area mission in the Dyson Sphere Adventure Zone:
An area mission is a mission granted by one of the central mission-givers in a neighborhood of the sphere, such as:
Joint Command, the Ion Stream, the Minefield, or the Supply Depot in the Allied Zone; or the Allied Border, the Industrial Area, the Wasteland, or the Voth Front in the Contested Zone.
This means that you no longer need to complete a lengthy daily mission to earn a commendation by participating in the adventure zone.
The daily wrapper missions have been removed as they are no longer needed to earn your commendation from participating in the adventure zone.
When a commendation is earned you will see the message "You have earned a Dyson commendation! You will be eligible for an additional commendation in 20 hours."
You will not see this message when completing the Storming the Spire or The Breach queued events.
Updated waypoints in the Allied and Contested Zones so that the text displayed when hovering the mouse over a waypoint on the map will tell which mission and submission it is associated with:
Examples: "Joint Command - Medical Emergency" or "Voth Front - Extract Special Forces."
Updated area missions in the Allied and Contested Zones so that mission journal text updates to reflect whichever mission objectives you've been given:
Example: If you are given the "Medical Emergency" mission, your mission journal text will explain this particular mission and what to do.
New arrows now appear above contacts and objectives for missions in the Adventure Zone.
New waypoint brackets display on screen for the location of a mission objective in addition to the standard waypoint displayed on the mini map.
Waypoints for area missions in the sphere are now colored green.
Waypoints for found missions in the sphere are now colored purple.
Dyson Joint Command has generated a computer map update that will allow your ship's computer to show HUD elements for your missions in progress in the Sphere:
You will see reticles indicating the location of a mission destination while you are far away, and a pointing arrow indicating the location of your mission when up close.
Contested Zone: Addressed an issue that could cause the U.S.S. Mumbai to not be in the correct position to offer the found mission "Clean Up Pollution" in the industrial area.
Resolved a typo in the "Supply Depot - Deliver Supplies" mission that would cause an interact button to display "Pad Three" instead of "Pad Nine."
Allied Zone no longer displays a control bar.
This was removed as there is no event or objectives tied to it as the allied zone is under full control of the allies.
New FX for battlezone powerups and command coins has been added.
Updated the art style of the waypoint arrows.
Resolved an issue which was occasionally rewarding presents incorrectly in the Winter Invasion.
Red Wintercoat Long Female Upper now correctly has a red belt.
Targ pups can now be activated in the Winter Wonderland.
Resolved an issue which was blocking progression in the Vault Shuttle Event.
The Crystalline Entity may flicker from far distances in Crystalline Catastrophe.
Some KDF captains are not able to switch to all costume slots.
The Teamwork Trait is preventing teams from extra exploit damage.
Captains and all their information may not be visible in Gateway until logging into that character one time in game.
