Main discussion

  1. Update 14.02 Patch Notes
    1. Features Of Note
      1. Restoring power to each of the settlements in a
      2.  recovering system now reduces the time taken to fully recover the system by 1 week.
      3. This will be reflected in that system’s recovery complete time shortly after the final settlement has had power restored.
      4. Missions to restore power to settlements are now available in Recovering systems.
      5. Humanity is attempting to reclaim systems controlled by the Thargoid forces!
      6. Conflict Zones and other scenarios can now be found within Thargoid-controlled systems near the frontlines of the invasion.
      7. Salvaging and then safely recovering Black Boxes and Escape Pods, obtaining and delivering Tissue Samples now all contribute towards the progress bar and resist the invasion in the location they were collected, when handed in to a rescue megaship.
      8. Recovering systems that can no longer have their recovery efforts accelerated by player actions will now show 100% completion on the progress bar so that it’s clearer where to place recovery efforts.
      9. ‘Thargoid War’ panel now shows the top 5 most progressed (but not completed) systems in each Thargoid state.
    2. Other Highlights
      • Thargoid Interceptors will no longer stray far from settlement conflict zones – (Uh oh…Good news, bad news? Hard to tell) – Last night we had an interceptor 20 + km away. Is that too far?
