... itty bitty patch notes...

918MB seems a bit much for what is being reported in the notes. It was pretty bad last week too but typically the patches haven't been this crazy. What's going on?

511mb here.

The new Federation Battle Cruiser: Avenger Class is now on display in the ESD shipyard.
I guess it has a lot of pixels. Probably the whole ship, though (flying into our clients cloaked, avenging your ISP) and it will only be tweaked/enabled in Z-store later.

As someone who's programmed some really annoying stuff in the past, I'll tell you that explaining WHAT is fixed can be a one-liner. The amount of stuff that needs to be done to achieve it....yeah that's a nightmare. So please don't think that the length of the notes can really express how complicated some of this stuff actually is from a coder's perspective.

Might be Season 8 pre-patches. Or maybe some of the stuff mentioned requires implementation in more than 1 system... what do we know. According to Red-Shirt notes they might also fix the sounds that have been playing on various maps over the last days. Just download it  91708

511mb for myself...pretty typical, taking into account the avenger and the cruiser command layout
EptE3+evasive maneuvers+130/100 engine power+Attack patternmega+deuterium surplus+ aux2inertial dampeners+ the biggest ship you can find = damn right

I've been farting around with the launcher (on demand patching has been disabled too) and when I click on Live (Holodeck) nothing downloads but when I click on Public Test (Tribble) it went from 918MB to 757MB.

At present: Patched: 13.2MB / 757MB
Received 12.5MB - 1%

My connection is pretty terrible (I know that's not a Cryptic problem) so large updates drive me crazy, lol.

People still get this confused?

That's 511 MB of data patched.
The download was actually only about 200MB.

Data file compression whoohoo!

I'm grumpy... need my coffee...

Hey, I'm a trusting dude. I take reported information as is. If stuff is so simple, you'd think someone could figure out how to say what it actually is.

At any rate, I'm just asking because I've seen much more impressive patch notes with much smaller file sizes. I was curious to know if I was missing something.

In that case it makes even LESS sense for 200mb to take 5 hours to download!
