Hi there, 

 

We just released an update with various fixes and improvements. Dual Universe is now in 0.25.11 version and the changes brought today are below: 

 

Bug Fixes

  • [VFX] Fixed a bug where assembly line VFXs were not synchronized with model animations
  • [VFX] Fixed a bug where the projected light of small holograms became larger after repairing the destroyed hologram element.
  • Fixed an exploit with braking constructs
  • [GUI] Data tree (item filter in inventory/market): fixed unexpected select line behavior when clicking on the empty space left to the item name.
  • [GUI] Fixed number input going up/down regularly (without way to stop) after a left & right click (at the same time) on an arrow of the number input.
  • [GUI] Fixed path for items icon for helper & hints (and maybe other texts).
  • [GUI] Fixed tooltip label on talent queue. (It said "crafting queue").
  • Fixed a bug preventing setting dispenser content with a partial stack drag&drop.
  • [Warpdrive] Prevent warp package exploits
  • [Warpdrive] Prevent warp cell exploit by loading containers after the warp starts
  • [Warpdrive] Prevent warp cell exploit by changing warping target during alignment
  • [Warpdrive] Fixed warp speed display capped on controlUnit widget
  • [Warpdrive] Fixed warp button not always responding to click


Crash Fixes

  • [Crash] Fixed a crash when piloting constructs near a detection Zone element.


Gameplay Balancing/Changes

  • [Docking] You can no longer dock to an already warping construct
  • Changes the precision of processing time in industry units to go up to 3 units of precision. (ie => 3 hrs 36 min 3 sec rather than simply 4 hours) => This does not change the displayed time left, as space is more limited for that info, and it stays in only 1 unit of precision.
  • [Warpdrive] Allow to manually stop warp
  • [Warpdrive] Warpdrive can no longer consume cells from player inventory. It must be connected to a container
     

Known Issues

  • [VFX] Assembly line VFX may not be synchronized with model animations. [Fixed]
  • [Industries] Industry units are still active while being broken. [Fixed]
  • [Industries] Industry units still reappear while the element is broken upon relog or entering rendering range. [Fixed]

 

Thanks for your support! 

 

Cheers,

Nomad

Hi Noveans, 

 

Today, we're releasing the 0.26.2 version of Dual Universe. This update is named "Apollo". You'll find its massive changelog below: 

 

NEW FEATURES

 

Asteroids

  • Asteroids filled with precious ore will now spawn in the game world. 
  • A new element, the deep space asteroid tracker (DSAT), will be available. The DSAT will be used to find and track down asteroids. 
  • In the DSAT there will also be a global asteroid tracker (GAT), an interface which tracks all asteroids in the game world.
  • Asteroids will be available in tiers from one to five, representing their rarity. Safe space will only have asteroids of tier one and two.
  • Asteroids will cycle weekly, as they come in and out of the system. 
  • At the beginning of each cycle, asteroids will spawn over the course of 24 hours and will be available for a week at which point a new cycle will start.
  • The fractured space potato chunks that surround Thades are not asteroids.

 

PvP Shields

  • Added shield generators that protect constructs in PvP.
  • Shield generators will serve as a first layer of protection for dynamic constructs during combat. 
  • Shields will absorb damage until depleted at which point they will stay depleted until the end of combat defined per the combat timer. 
  • Shields will only be available on dynamic constructs.
  • Shields placed during a combat timer will start from 0.
  • Added Shield Lua API :
    • activate(): Activate the shield.
    • deactivate(): Deactivate the shield.
    • toggle(): Toggle the state of the shield.
    • getState(): Returns the activation state of the shield. Returns 1 when the shield is active, 0 otherwise.
    • getShieldHitPoints(): Returns the current hit points of the shield.
    • getMaxShieldHitPoints(): Returns the maximal hit points of the shield.
    • absorbed(hitpoints) event : Emitted when the shield absorbed incoming damage (accessible with hitpoints argument).
    • down() event : Emitted when the shield hit points reached 0 or deactivation.
    • restored() event : Emitted when the shield hit points are fully restored.

 
Combat Timer

  • The combat timer is a construct-based timer which indicates if a construct has recently participated in PvP activity. 
  • Both firing and receiving weapons fire will trigger or restart the combat timer on a construct. 
  • Currently the combat timer will affect two things:
    • Shield generator regeneration
    • Warp drive activation
  • The combat timer is currently set at 10 minutes.
  • Added in Core Unit Lua API:
    • getPvPTimer() : Returns the remaining time of the PvP Timer (in seconds), or 0.0 if elapsed.
    • pvpTimer(active) event : Emitted when the PvP Timer started or elapsed

 

Lua Screen Units

  • The current API is not added to the codex yet. Full documentation can be found on the PTS forum here:
  • Introduced a new screen content editor UI to allow switching between HTML & Lua content type for screen content:
    • Syntax highlighting and character count display.
    • Error display for render script content (Lua).
  • Shortcut "Ctrl + L" to open the content editor on a screen unit.
  • “setCenteredText” and “setImage” will set the screen content with render script; "Set Quick SVG" will not be available.
  • Fixed an issue where the render cost of borders was only half of the correct value.
  • Fixed an issue where non-ASCII characters caused immediate render cost overflow.
  • Fixed an issue where floating-point font sizes resulted in tiny fonts instead of correctly rounding.
  • Fixed an issue where the render cost of a Lua screen unit started at ~500k instead of 0.
  • Optimized the render cost of lines to be invariant under rotation.
  • Layers now have a fixed render cost of 50000 instead of a hard limit of 8.

 

Render Script API

  • Added: addBoxRounded(layer, x, y, width, height, radius) : add a rounded box.
  • Added: getCursorDown() -> boolean : return true if the mouse cursor is currently pressed down on the screen, false otherwise.
  • Added: getCursorPressed() -> boolean : return true if the mouse button changed from being released to being pressed at any point since the last update.
  • Added: getCursorReleased() -> boolean : return true if the mouse button changed from being pressed to being released at any point since the last update.
  • Added: getInput() -> string : return a string of input data (or an empty string, if no input has been set) that can be set via the screen programming board API using screen.setScriptInput(string).
  • Added: getFontMetrics(font) -> float, float : return the ascender and descender height of the font.
  • Added: getTextBounds(font, text) -> float, float : return the computed bounding box (width x height)” of the given text in the given font.
  • Added: setBackgroundColor(r, g, b) : set the background color of the screen unit.
  • Added: setNextShadow(layer, radius, r, g, b, a) : set the radius and color of the outer shadow for the next element.
  • Added: setDefaultXXX(layer, shapeType, propertyValue) : a set of functions for setting default values of properties ( FillColor, Rotation, Shadow, StrokeColor, StrokeWidth), segregated by shape type:
    • Shape_Box
    • Shape_BoxRounded
    • Shape_Circle
    • Shape_Image
    • Shape_Line
    • Shape_Polygon
    • Shape_Text
  • Added: setNextTextAlign(layer, alignX, alignY) : set the alignment of the next text string, relative to the bounding box of the entire string using the horizontal alignment enum:
    • AlignH_Left
    • AlignH_Center
    • AlignH_Right
  • And vertical alignment enum:
    • AlignV_Ascender: 
    • AlignV_Top
    • AlignV_Middle
    • AlignV_Baseline
    • AlignV_Bottom
    • AlignV_Descender
  • Added: setOutput(string) : set the screen's script output to string, for use with control units screen.getScriptOutput().
  • Added: isImageLoaded(imageId) -> bool : return true if the given image is loaded.
  • Added: logMessage(message) : write in the Lua chat if the output checkbox is checked.
  • Added several monospaced fonts.
  • Added Lua built in setmetatable to whitelisted functions.

 

Screen Unit API

  • Added: clearScriptOutput() : clear the render script output string, such that the next call to getScriptOutput will return the empty string, until the next time a render script is executed and calls setOutput.
  • Added: getScriptOutput() -> string : return the last output string of the screen's render script, or an empty string.
  • Added: setScriptInput(string) : set a string of input data that can be retrieved from the screen's render script by calling getInput.

    • At seated height
    • Sunk into surface
  • Added new cannon models.
  • Added new laser models.
  • Added new missile launcher models.
  • Added new railgun models.
  • Added new unique Gunner Seat S/M/L models.
  • New Ammo Containers XS/S/M/L models.
  • Added Space Radar variation skins.
  • Added Weapons variation skins.
  • Changed textures of home set elements (Chairs, Sofa, Tables, Club, Dresser, Wardrobe)
  • Changed textures of Hover Engines.
  • Changed Planet Hologram icon.
  • New FX update for the bonsai, green to blue.
  • New FX update for the resurrection node: blue and smaller in height.
  • New FX for the teleportation node.
  • New FX for the DSAT deploy, run, and screen.

 

Improvements

  • [Map] Added Territories section. Similar to the construct list, you will be able to see your territories and territories of organizations of which you are a legate.
  • [Map] Added ability to declare a territory you own as "Welcoming visitors” via the map screen (for trade, showrooms, ship shops, museums, events ...etc).This adds an icon on the map visible to all (this icon is visible from a certain zoom level). You can revoke it at any time.
  • [Map] Added ability to rename a territory you own via the map screen.
  • [Map] Revamped tile filters in planet map now allows you to navigate between tiles without searching on map. It also now uses your active container rather than the inventory when filtering for territory scans.
  • [Map] Updated points of interest list.
  • [Map] Improved planet loading in map interface
  • Regrouped different dispenser settings into a unified dispenser configuration panel.
  • You can now use "Right-click -> inspect element" for a placed element on a construct to open an item inspector window for that element. This item inspector will display the applied "onDeploy" modifiers currently applied on that element.
  • New dispenser configuration that allows you to redirect the money transfer to a recipient different from the owner of the dispenser. (Should help set up stores for people that rent core units.)
  • Added shift-click multiple selection in inventory.
  • Achievement panel revamp, including some minor additional information on achievements.
  • Operation taxes are now applied also to order updates.
  • Polish the scanner tool UI.
  • Schematics now display their produced products and required industry units in the item inspector.
  • Added contact request notification icon in bottom right of the HUD.
  • The layout of the Item inspector was changed.
  • Classic interactions on widget buttons (click/hover) have been added.
  • HUD notification icons and chat improvements.
  • [Performance] When a modification happens in an inventory, we no longer perform a search directly if the view of that container is not visible (inventory closed). This avoids costly search operations in lots of situations (when mining, for example).
  • [Performance] Improved PopcornFX performance.
  • Optimized operations on planets.
  • Temporarily removed a small animation when hovering item slots to avoid frame drop in inventory.
  • [Art] FX update for industries about their level of detail (LOD) to improve performance.
  • Minor polish of error notifications messages.

 

Gameplay Balancing/Changes

  • [Avatar] Resetting character customization doesn't reset character type anymore.
  • Updated the roadmap on the login screen.
  • Emitter unit Lua method “send(channel, message)” has been deprecated. The channel can no longer be set dynamically. The message will be sent with the static channel set on the emitter element itself. Use the new method “broadcast(message)” instead.
  • Receiver unit Lua event “receive(channel, message)” is now deprecated. To be future-proof, use the new event “receive(message)”. For privacy reasons, those two methods will only listen to the receiver static channel defined on the receiver element itself.
  • [Art] Icon update for the Metalwork industry element.
  • [Art] FX update for decorative plants, holograms, and  elevators  level of detail (LOD) to improve performance.
  • [Art] FX update for the surrogate pod station with a smaller FX height.
  • [Art] New FX for the teleportation node to follow the new VFX direction.
  • [Art] New size for the railgun L, smaller and  closer to the rest of the large weapons family.
  • [Art] UI VFX now shows the current tracking step.

 

Crash Fix

  • Fixed crash with incorrect data in Lua “setWaypoint()”.


Bug Fixes

  • Radar capacity handling talents text corrected to five percent per level instead of 10 (text fix only).
  • Radar targeting handling talent (identification speed on put down) now working.
  • Fixed weird trajectory and constructs sometimes getting destroyed when warping through a planet.
  • Fixed a bug where surrogate pods became public on core destruction.
  • [GUI] Fixed a bug where the bigger the name of an item was, the less its info was visible on the bottom part of the inventory.
  • [GUI] Fixed ammo container display name.
  • [Visual] Fixed overly-bright light reflections on smooth surfaces.
  • Fixed a bug that allowed everyone to access the wallet of any org.
  • Fixed a bug that removed element property when adding an element from the inventory.

  • Fixed the crash of the market operation direct buy/sell modal while opening it.
  • Fixed a bug where VR challenge next reward time was reset when tested.
  • [Industries] Fixed metalworks status lights.
  • Fixed a bug where elements could be placed with the deploy element tool while players were inside the element.
  • [Loc] Various localization fixes.
  • Fixed the landing gear element appearing to be extended every time it was loaded regardless of its actual state.
  • [Settings] Fixed a bug with the graphic option "Environmental Shadows" to "None" that broke the flashlight. (User could still see the "angle" HUD but no light source.)
  • [Talents] Fixed a bug where player talents would not apply to industry unit run when the player is in VR or in a tutorial.
  • [Missions] Fixed a bug that prevents job details from showing up if a respondent is offline.
  • [Friends] Fixed a bug that prevented players from removing a friend from the friend list in some rare cases.
  • [GUI] Applied a max length to bookmark names and their description. Fixed overflow of the description that prevented it from  scrolling horizontally.

  • [GUI] Fixed double quanta symbol in some wallet log entries.
  • [GUI] Fixed tooltip on crafting tab not updating.
  • Fixed incorrect display in some cases of surrogate loading screens.
  • [GUI] Fixed dropdown for camera lens settings (no longer goes outside of the screen) and searched entity dropdown in tile filter block.
  • [GUI] Fixed build helper window that was not interactable in some cases. 
  • [Chat] After a resize of the game window (includes alt-tab when in fullscreen), we now force the chat to scroll to the bottom.

  • [Art] New gunner seats meshes (element/collision) update (position), contact surface & anchor character realigned following that.
  • [Art] Cannons variations colors big update and minor fixes (mesh and mats).
  • [Art] Fixed a bug where the interior of the railgun S and L  were visible in some situations.
  • Fixed a rare bug that prevented warp without Aphelia mission package present in some conditions.
  • [GUI] Fixed a typo in number input that was causing an issue in dispenser configuration panel.
  • [GUI] Fixed input capture for tag entry in dispenser panel. Pressing "o" will no longer open the wallet if focused in the input field.
  • [GUI] Fixed market registering the input too soon and not checking if input was captured, causing the "j" key to open the market when the dispenser panel was opened.
  • Fixed a bug where space core unit XS could be displayed with the wrong mesh.
  • Fixed radar capacity handling talent description.

 

Known Issues

  • [PvP] Firing multiple weapons leads to very high rates of missing due to internal timeouts. We are actively investigating the issue.
  • [Shields] Shields sometimes do not correctly fully encapsulate the construct they belong to. This does not affect the functionality of the shield and is a visual issue only.
  • [Screen Units] Non-standard aspect screens like signs currently do not render correctly and stretch.
  • Numerous French and German localization issues have already been spotted.
  • A random rendering crash may occur under some conditions due to low GPU/driver resources. Setting shadows to ‘Low’ and disabling Volumetric Clouds in Graphic settings may help.
  • Voxel crashes may occur due to low disk/memory.
  • [Industries] Talents that impact ingredients of schematic products are not displayed client-side, but the schematic updates with the server schematic when starting.
  • [Industries] Some inconsistencies in schematics and tiered elements.
  • [Screens] Transparent screens display as solid white when loading in close proximity.
  • [Screens] High-frequency text updates on screens in HTML mode cause text to not display or flash.
  • [Elements] In certain situations, elements unload at high speeds.
  • Various lighting, shadow, and reflection issues might be seen due to ongoing rendering rework.
  • In some cases, DU stops responding when the game is minimized for too long. We’re investigating this issue right now.
  • Animated elements can be visually duplicated when broken during an animation.
  • Wrong highlight mesh for shield generators (XS, M, L)

Hi Noveans, 

 

We just released a small patch. DU is now in 0.26.11 version and fixes and changes are listed below: 

 

Exploit Fix

  • Fixed an industry duplicate production.


Improvements

  • [District Markets] Two changes have been made to the markets in the district areas in accordance with the new market construct rules laid out here:
    • A green perimeter line has been added to all market buildings; the green line zone is in fact a "non-obstructive" zone where no constructs (regardless of being a ship or not) are allowed.
    • According to the new market rules, only ships are allowed now on the market landing pad outside the green perimeter. In short, advertising displays, stores, etc., are no longer allowed in the market area.
    • Teleportation pads have been added to connect the district market with the nearest district center to facilitate players wanting to look at other players’ shop constructs, advertisements, and dispensers.


Bug Fixes

  • Fixed pending friend requests that cannot be deleted by the sender.
  • [GUI] Asteroid name now properly shows on HUD.
     

Thanks for your support!

Hi Noveans, 

 

Today, we're releasing the Ares update! In many ways, Ares is a big complementary companion to the Apollo (0.26) update. Released in August, Apollo introduced the first wave of PVP-centric assets, balancing, and features. Now, Ares update, our fifth major update so far this year, named after the Greek god of war, is packed with new things, improvements, and fixes regarding PvP and even more! Here's the changelog to keep you busy during maintenance time: 
 

New Features

  • Explicit docking and boarding system (previously called “parenting”) 

Avatars must now have the "Right to board" dynamic constructs. Similarly, any dynamic construct is now able to dock to any other dynamic construct of strictly smaller size if the pilot has the necessary "Right to dock" permission.

 

Owners can use the Rights and Duties Management System (RDMS) to assign a right to board or a right to dock to their constructions that will allow others to board or dock or to prohibit such requests.

 

When a ship or a player is docked or boarded, it moves with the "parent" construct, and its mass is then added to the physics of the parent.

 

The constructs now have two zones, a "red" zone corresponding to the bounding box of the construct, and a "blue" zone corresponding to the surrounding zone of the ship; the size of this zone depends on the size of the core of the potential parent construct, from 32m to 128m.

 

In order to board or dock, a player or a ship will have to be close to the candidate construct, in the blue zone, and have the appropriate rights, else the player or the ship will be repulsed.

 

For the previous things added to the docking and boarding system, you can read the Boarding and Docking devblog. 

 

  • Updated two construct rights: “Right to board” and “Right to dock” (formerly “Parent Construct”).
  • Docked constructs and boarded players (including offline players) and their mass are now listed in the Build Helper. Offline players can be ejected from that window.
  • Docking status of a construct and nearby constructs are displayed in the docking widget. Boarding status of a player is displayed in the player UI at the top right of the screen next to the mini-map.
  • Widget is triggered by Lua (as usual). Players can auto configure their ships to get the widget or add in the start event of the lua unit slot : 
    • parentingPanelId = system.createWidgetPanel("Docking")
    • parentingWidgetId = system.createWidget(parentingPanelId,"parenting")
    • system.addDataToWidget(unit.getDataId(),parentingWidgetId)
  • The owner of a construct can maneuver all other docked constructs even if they don't have the right to those constructs. They can also choose to undock them once they are outside of the parent construct either by right-clicking on it or from the Build Helper. To be more specific, you can be "docked" to a construct while not being inside the construct but simply "near" the construct. You can not forcibly undock a construct that is inside of your construct. But if a construct is still docked to your construct while being "near" your construct, you can forcibly undock it.
  • Using the Maneuver Tool to dock a construct displays the nearest construct you can dock to. You can use ALT+T to dock the construct.
  • As a pilot, there are three different docking modes:
    • MANUAL: You have to manually dock your construct.
    • PROXIMITY: If the construct is not docked but in the bounding box of the parent candidate construct, it automatically docks if able.
    • OWNER: As proximity, but only when the construct owners of both the parent candidate and the piloted construct are the same.
  • You can switch the docking mode by using the docking widget.
  • Constructs that are not docked to another construct are physically repulsed when trying to enter it.
  • All players can board (walk on) inactive (unpiloted) constructs. Players without the boarding right are ejected when the construct becomes active.
  • Added Lua functions and event on core unit API:
    • getPlayersOnBoard(): Returns the list of player IDs on board the construct.
    • getDockedConstructs(): Returns the list of IDs of constructs docked to the construct.
    • isPlayerBoarded(pid): Returns 1 if the given player is boarded to the construct.
    • isConstructDocked(cid): Returns 1 if the given construct is docked to the construct.
    • forceDeboard(pid): Sends a request to the server to attempt to forcibly unboard a player with the given ID.
    • forceUndock(cid): Sends a request to the server to attempt to forcibly undock a construct with the given ID.
    • playerBoarded(pid) event: Emitted when a player boards the construct.
    • constructDocked(cid) event: Emitted when another construct docks this construct.
    • getBoardedPlayerMass(pid): Returns the mass of the given player if it is on board the construct.
    • getDockedConstructMass(cid): Returns the mass of the given construct if it is docked to the construct.
    • getParent(): Returns the ID of the parent construct of your active construct.
    • getCloseParents(): Returns the list of IDs of nearby constructs to which the construct can dock.
    • getClosestParent(): Returns the ID of the nearest construct  to which the construct can dock.
    • dock(): Sends a request to dock to the given construct. Limited to piloting controllers.
    • undock(): Sends a request to undock the construct. Limited to piloting controllers.
    • docked(cid) event: Emitted when the construct becomes docked.
    • undocked(cid) event: Emitted when the construct is undocked.
    • setDockingMode(mode): Sets the docking mode.
    • getDockingMode(): Returns the current docking mode.
  • Added Lua functions on control unit API:
    • getMasterPlayerParent(): Returns the ID of the construct on which the active player is boarded.
    • getMasterPlayerMass(): Returns the mass of the active player.

 

  • Core Combat Stress (CCS)

Core combat stress (CCS) represents a core unit's ability to keep functioning under weapons fire. CCS is basically a second loss condition on a construct during PvP fights. It works in tandem with generic core unit destruction. It does not matter which one happens first, only the one that happens eventually. A ship can now be destroyed in combat independent of voxel damage.

 

A core unit that takes too much stress will be destroyed and will be considered a fair PvP destruction. Stress will be accumulated as the construct takes non-shield weapons hits. A  devblog about this was  recently released; read it here.

 

The maximum stress supported by a construct is based on the number of honeycombs that compose it.

 

  • Added  core combat stress widget.
  • Added stress level warning SFX at 25%, 50%, 75% and 95% of stress.
  • Added Lua functions and events on core unit API:
    • getCoreStress(): The core's current stress, destroyed when reaching max stress.
    • getMaxCoreStress(): The maximum stress the core can bear before it gets destroyed.
    • getCoreStressRatio(): The core's current stress-to-max stress ratio.
    • stressChanged(stress) event: Emitted when core unit stress has changed.

 

  • Shields V2

The Ares update introduces two new shield modules for PvP fights: the adjustable resistances and the venting mechanic: 

  • Added venting game mechanic to allow regeneration of shield hitpoints during combat. Players will now have to think more strategically during combat. 
    • Players may vent their shields at any point.
    • Venting shields will do two things:
    • Turn off the shields. (They cannot be reactivated during venting.)
    • Start a shield regeneration of a certain percent/second.
    • Venting can be deactivated at will.
    • Arriving at max shields will auto-deactivate venting.
    • Venting has a cooldown after usage.
  • Added adjustable resistances game mechanic: Players can now allocate points to better prepare and adapt during a fight, depending on the weapons of their opponents: 
    • Shields start at a base resistance value of 10/10/10/10.
    • There is a shield resistance pool of an extra 60% resistance.
    • Players can assign these extra resistances by increments of five to any of the four resistances, i.e. 10/10/10/70 or 25/25/25/25.
    • Players may lock in their resistance selection and that selection will be active and cannot be changed for 60 seconds.
    • Once the time has expired, the set resistances stay as set unless the player recalibrates them.
    • Shields UI provides feedback to indicate which resistances are taking the most damage on the shield regardless of what resistances are set.
  • Shield venting cooldown depends on the size of the shield generator:
    • XS: 60s
    • S: 120s
    • M: 240s
    • L: 480s
  • Update Shield Generator widget according to new additions.
  • Added raw hitpoints as arguments of the absorbed Lua event.
  • Renamed functions containing HitPoints to Hitpoints.
  • Adjusted base resistance of shields: Now 10/10/10/10 down from 15/15/15/15.
  • Balanced shields hitpoints : 
    • XS: 500,000
    • S: 2,000,000
    • M: 7,500,000
    • L: 20,000,000
  • Lua shield generator API additions:
    • toggled(active) event: Emitted when a state change is triggered (active/inactive).
    • venting (active, restoredHitpoints) event: Emitted when venting has started, stopped or restored some hitpoints.
    • startVenting(): Activate shield venting to restore hit points.
    • isVenting(): Check whether venting is in progress, return 1 if it is venting.
    • getVentingCooldown(): Returns time after which venting is possible again.
    • getVentingMaxCooldown(): Returns maximal cooldown between venting.
    • getResistances(): Returns distribution of resistance pool over resistance types.
    • setResistances(antimatter,electromagnetic,kinetic,thermic): Distribute the resistance pool according to damage.
    • getResistancesCooldown(): Returns time after which adjusting resistances is possible again.
    • getResistancesMaxCooldown(): Returns maximum cooldown between adjusting resistances.
    • getResistancesPool(): Returns total resistance pool that may be distributed.
    • getResistancesRemaining(): Returns the remaining amount of the resistance pool that can be distributed.
    • getStressRatio(): Returns ratio per damage type of recent weapon impacts after applying resistance.
    • getStressRatioRaw(): Returns ratio per damage type of recent weapon impacts without resistance.
    • getStressHitpoints(): Returns stress, that is the total hit points of recent weapon impacts after applying.
    • getStressHitpointsRaw(): Returns stress, that is the total hit points of recent weapon impacts without resistance.

  • [GUI] When selecting a construct on the construct list, it will only open the planet map for the nearest planet if the construct is in its sphere of influence. 
  • [Market] Fixed formatting currency.
  • [Market] Fixed market order sorting.
  • [Loc] Various fixes about ammo descriptions.
  • [Codex] Fixed shield generator codex texts.
  • [Mining] Fixed mining that was still possible until 10 minutes after a territory became private.
  • [Tool] Fixed a bug where “Replace” tool coordinates were not displayed.
  • [Building] Fixed BuildingZone flickering when voxels reach the limits.
  • [Lua] Fixed Lua getAxisAngleRad with angles > 90.
  • [Lua] Fixed Lua Parameter edition that could display code instead of values only.
  • [Lua] Replaced all uses of Lua atan2 by atan.
  • [Lua] Fixed a bug where Lua widgets were not always up-to-date when launched from a RemoteControlUnit.
  • [Screen Units] Fixed a bug where switching on a screen unit could read a wrong mouse value at first frame.
  • [Audio] Fixed a bug where engine sounds were not played and dynamic construct sweeteners were heard instead.


Known Issues

  • Some shield units may currently have zero maximum shield hitpoints following the update, if this is the case simply pick up and place down the shield to restore its hitpoints to the new maximum value.

  • [PvP] Using multiple weapons can still result in a low miss rate due to internal timeouts.
  • [Shields] In certain situations when constructs load, shields will not be visible to individual players. Deactivating and reactivating the shield will cause it to become visible for those players. This does not affect the functionality of the shield and is a visual issue only.
  • [Shields] Shields sometimes do not correctly fully encapsulate the construct to which they belong. This does not affect the functionality of the shield and is a visual issue only.
  • [Screen Units] Non-standard aspect screens, like signs, currently do not render correctly and stretch.
  • [Loc] Numerous French and German localization issues have already been spotted.
  • A random rendering crash may occur under some conditions due to low GPU/driver resources. Setting shadows to ‘Low’ and disabling Volumetric Clouds in Graphic settings may help.
  • Voxel crashes may occur due to low disk/memory.
  • [Industries] Talents that impact ingredients of schematic products are not displayed client-side, but the schematics are updated with the server schematics when starting.
  • [Industries] Some inconsistencies in schematics and tiered elements.
  • [Screens] High-frequency text updates on screens in HTML mode cause text to not display or flash.
  • Various lighting, shadow, and reflection issues might be seen due to ongoing rendering rework.
  • In some cases, DU stops responding when the game is minimized for too long. We’re investigating this issue right now.
  • Animated elements can be visually duplicated when broken during an animation.
  • Wrong highlight mesh for shield generators (XS, M, L).
  • [Codex] Missing Lua Screen Units codex page.
  • [Docking] Players will slide off of docked constructs if both they and the construct they are docked to are moving, which gets more severe with higher speeds.
  • [Docking] Piloting a construct while docked to another one that is flying very quickly will frequently induce strong rotations upon colliding with the docked construct.
  • [Docking] The child construct can be teleported when using the maneuvering tool on a moving parent construct.
     

We hope you'll like this update. The team has been working hard and continues to do so; we can't wait to have your feedback! Thank you very much for your support.

 

Cheers, 

Nomad

  • NQ-Nomad changed the title to Beta 1 Release Notes. Last updated on September, 21st

Hi Noveans, 

 

We just released a hotfix today. DU is now in 0.26.13 version. You can read the fixes below: 

 

Crash Fixes

  • The inventory background image bug reappeared in 0.26.12 despite our efforts to fix it. We’re back to the previous “workaround” solution as a temporary fix while we work towards a solution to squish this one for good. 

 

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed the ratio of roadmap image size. It should now be "contained" to ensure that the image is not cut off on panoramic resolutions.
  • Fixed a random freeze during the game loading process during the black "Dual Universe" screen.
  • Fixed the default market price sorting order being reversed.
  • Fixed an issue that caused some shields to have no shield hitpoints following the Ares update. If you encounter this issue after the hotfix deployment, you will have to pickup and replace down the shield to "fix" the issue.

 

Known Issues

  • [Crash] Overlapping an element in build mode may cause a crash when attempting to place the element.
  • [GUI] “Stop Venting” button not working.
  • [CODEX] core.getBoardedAvatars() is incorrect, the correct function name is core.getPlayersOnBoard().
  • [Lua] Editing Lua settings may cause a crash with some custom configurations.
  • [Lua] We are aware of a number of other Lua-related crashes and freezes, we are investigating.

 

We continue fixinx things following up on your feedback. Thank you for your support!

 

Cheers, 

Nomad

Hello Noveans, 

 

DU is now in 0.26.14 version. You'll find the changelog below: 

 

New Feature

  • Added the possibility to interact with the windowed Codex version in the Lua Editor. This will allow you to search and copy functions directly from the codex while coding.


Crash Fixes

  • Fixed a crash when attempting to place an element in a colliding position.
  • Fixed a crash when opening the Edit Lua parameters window.


Improvements

  • Displays "all" as language for organizations that selected "all" as language (rather than nothing).
  • [PvP] Weapon hits counted to combat core stress appear in the combat log.
  • Added Shield Lua function : stopVenting(): Deactivate shield venting.


Gameplay changes

  • Changed fallback inventory tile background color.


Bug Fixes

  • Shield UI: Fixed Stop Venting button not working.
  • [Market] Fixed lowest/highest price label in Create Order modal.
  • Fixed a bug blocking the activation of a transponder after deleting an active transponder.
  • [Launcher] Fixed a crash when a hardware check failed.


Known Issues

  • [Codex] core.getBoardedAvatars() is incorrect, the correct function name is core.getPlayersOnBoard().
  • [Lua] Edit Lua Parameters can fail to be applied with some specific custom configurations. This is complex to fix. In the meantime, we recommend that players do not write too long lines of code instructions and use the line break. 
  • [Lua] We are aware of and investigating a number of other Lua-related crashes and freezes.
     

We hope you'll like the improvements brought here. We continue working hard to improve things. As always, we're eager to get your feedback. Thanks for your support!

 

Cheers, 

Nomad
