We will be bringing the Tribble server down for maintenance to apply a new update.
ST.25.20121210a.4

General:
  • Updated German and French Translations.
  • Second Wave: When teamed, other players will no longer show up during the cutscene.
  • Updated the Galrondon Core System patrol so the Gekli no longer fail to start moving again after waiting for the player.
  • Corrected prompt when services are not available in Klingon Embassy to read Service Not Available rather than "Interact".
  • Mugato Critter Group thrown rock attack no longer leaves rubble that slides around wildly and sticks around for too long.
  • Updated the FX for High Yield torpedoes so they should remain visible and will no longer linger after they explode.
  • Added a new icon to the Adapted FX.
  • Tholians have been updated.
    • They look way more awesome now.
  • Added all new art for the Klingon Toron shuttle, so it is now the Klingon equivalent to the Federation Runabout.
  • Updated descriptions for Klingon Starbase Shipyard project unlocks to correctly list the ships available at each tier.
    • This is a text change only.
  • The Tholian Deep Space Encounter now resets properly after completion.
  • Updated the materials used on the Nausicaan and Fek'ihri ships.
    • Players will have the option to use both the new and existing materials on their ships.
    • NPC ships will have the updated visuals.

Systems:
  • Omega Reputation:
    • Tier 4 Store Unlock Projects for "Consumables" and "Prosthetic Arm Guns" will now properly unlock the associated gear without requiring players to have run the associated T2 Store Unlock Projects beforehand.
      • This is a retroactive fix.
      • Any player that has already ran these projects will find their gear in the Store tab and will not need to re-run any projects to access them.
  • "Console - Universal - Nadeon Detonator" will now enhance any standard torpedo, instead of only functioning with Photon Torpedoes.
  • All "Phased Polaron Beam Array" items have had their display names changed to "Dominion Polaron Beam Array"
  • All "Phased Polaron Dual Cannon" items have had their display names changed to "Dominion Polaron Dual Cannon"
  • Fixed a typo in the Nausicaan Personnel project
  • The Embassy Console store no longer has duplicate items instead of some of the proper consoles that should have appeared in the store.
  • Reinforced Environmental Suits will now display on Photonic Bridge Officers.
  • Corrected the description of Reactive Shielding.
  • Corrected the description of Transportation Officer Duty Officers.
  • Reduced the duration of the NPC Borg Cutting Beam.
  • Reduced the likelihood a Borg ship will use Cutting Beam.
  • Subsystem Targeting tooltip descriptions now more accurately reflect the effects of these abilities.
  • Sonic Pulse tooltip description no longer has a reference to "feet" as a unit of measurement.
  • Scramble Sensors no longer persists thru the death of the target.
    • This may fix odd UI behavior associated with dying while under the effects of Confuse.
  • Isometric Charge, NPC Version:
    • Reduced damage on each hit by between 25% and 30% per hit.
    • Reduced range of "jumps" from 5km to 3km.
    • Reduced damage variance from 10% to 5%.
      • This means fewer high-damage spikes, but also fewer low-damage duds.
    • NOTE: Borg Queen's version still has a larger firing arc and shorter cooldown than other NPC ships, as it always has.
  • Borg STF Enemies:
    • Reduced damage variance on all Plasma Torpedo abilities from 10% to 5%.
    • Plasma DOTs applied by Torpedo hits have been reduced to 80% of prior magnitude.
  • Added information on Tricobalt Torpedoes to long descriptions for Torpedo: High Yield all types/ranks.
  • Fleet Duty Officers:
    • Corrected more Department/Spec discrepancies, most notably all Armory Officers are now properly a part of the Security Department instead of Tactical Department.
  • Updated Reactive Deflection:
    • Updated the description to clarify its functionality.
    • Increased the duration of ability to 2 seconds.
    • Added a limitation that Reactive Deflection cannot proc more than once every 30 seconds.
  • Fixed a typo in the description of Blast Assault weapons where they were erroneously described as Exploting targets rather than Exposing them.
    • This is a text change only.
  • Corrected the Warp In animation for ships summoned by Romulan Distress Call items.
  • The Omega Reputation Power "Rotating Weapon Frequency" has been updated and improved.

UI:
  • Using /p to chat on a team no longer changes the chat main tab to Team.
  • Choose Your Away Team window:
    • When leaving instances on New Romulus, the window no longer shows more Bridge Officer options than are available.
    • While in a team the team leader is now visible on the "Choose Your Away Team" window.
  • Fixing a number of cases where the wrong spacecraft would be referenced in the UI
  • It's now possible to search for Warfare Specialist and Consultant Duty Officers on the exchange.
    • The Duty Officer types are now grouped together to reduce the size of the list of types.
  • Fixed a typo in Operational Asset - Gravatic Instability Probe.
  • Fixed a typo in the description of the Kinetic Cutting Beam.

every patch seems to be one win after another.

Interesting.

Why do Photonics need an EVA suit again?

Darkstar did you read the new ask Cryptic? In it Dstahl said something about a Dominion Lockbox coming around the 3 year anniversary so maybe these will kind of co-inside. Also I wonder if the Jem'Hadar ship set will update and the Dominion (Old Phased Polaron) weapons will be the new weapons buffed in the Ship set.

Nerfing even more the poor and puny borg npcs was really uneeded. They should get a massive buff instead, STFs are way too easy, especially the space ones. Fortunately no one ever had the idea to nerf ground borg npcs, but i guess they're on the "dumb it down" list. Come on, the current STFs are supposed to be scaled to RA ships and we have now ultra OP ones, this is getting ridiculous.

But i also see many good updates, such as the tholian red alert and the tooltip improvement. I hope you plan to remove all the vague ones. We need precise figures and %. Everywhere.

Yes I did, that's why I thought it was "Interesting".

I doubt it, there would be little but anger with the change, since they are just a Hybrid w/ crtH bonus.

For that matter, why wasn't the Chel Grett added to the Jem set since it was a Dominion ally like the the cardasians.

all that sounds awesome. the toran made... better? a stat clone of the runabout instead of more like the type 8? does it look different? the new skins for kdf ships, some fixes and updates to varies things, i like it. hopefully borg wont 1 shot as much anymore too. what really needs to happens borg to shoot more, and deal less damage per hit. that way their crits wont kill you no mater what you do. same thing for all npcs

phased polaron becoming dominion polaron is a tell that the next rep to grind will be dominion rep, and there will be these weapons unlocked in a store. i thought this would eventually happen. dan said the next lock box will be dominion, this update tells me a rep will be launched around then too, i wouldn't even be surprised if theres a gamma quadrant sector block added in season 8 too, with another embassy.
