Entropia VU News: Entropia Universe 16.5.0 Release Notes

Discussion in 'Entropia News' started by EP-Newsbot, Sep 24, 2019.

  1. New Features

    Codex

    • The Codex is a repository for creature information and missions. Additional features are planned to be added to the Codex in the future
    • This first version of the Codex features creature entries that are unlocked by encountering creatures while exploring the universe.
    • Codex entries can be unlocked by scanning or by participating in the kill of a creature (including healing and absorbing damage).
    • Every creature entry has an associated Hunting Challenge comprised of 26 stages, with the last stage being repeatable.
    • Hunting Challenge missions are now automatically begun once a qualifying creature is killed; there is no need to visit a mission terminal or mission NPC.
    • Hunting Challenge rewards are distributed by the Codex.
    • Hunting Challenge progress supports group hunts, and is not dependent upon an avatar being a member of a team, nor is it dependent on a creature having shared loot enabled. All participants of a qualifying creature kill will gain Hunting Challenge progress relative to contribution. (Loot distribution mechanics are unaffected by the changes to mission progress).
    • All avatars start at Stage One of the Hunting Challenge for all creatures in the Codex.


    Entropia Exchange

    • It is now possible to place sell orders for shares on the Entropia Exchange, with a maximum duration of 7 days.
    • Sell orders are grouped together based on price and are executed based on order timestamp, with older orders being executed first.
    • Existing shares can be acquired by browsing active sell orders on the Entropia Exchange.
    • There is a transaction fee of 0.25% of the sale price for all sell orders, with a minimum fee of 25 PEC and a maximum fee of 25 PED. Fees for the unfulfilled portion of sell orders are refunded once the order expires.
    • An alert is sent to the Message Center when a sell order has been fulfilled.


    Chat Channels

    • Avatars now automatically rejoin the previous session’s custom chat channels when logging in.
    • Avatars are removed from custom chat channels when disconnected or logged out from Entropia Universe.
    • Custom chat channels no longer have restrictions on the number of members.
    • Custom chat channel membership is retained across server restarts and client login sessions.


    Changes

    • Added a new option in Options/Gameplay to “Only Interact with Locked Enemies”.
    • Improved the display of persistent buffs.
    • The Client Loader no longer steals focus when launching the Entropia Universe client.
    • Objects displayed in the Item Info panel can now be rotated using the middle mouse button.
    • Adjusted the size of the recently added News interface.
    • Loot outlines now only appear on creatures that the avatar is able to loot.
    • The View Achievements context menu item is now disabled if the target avatar has not enabled the Share Achievements privacy option.
    • Adjusted interaction text for various interfaces and buttons (i.e. Auction->Place Bid, Lamps-> Turn On/Off, Body Sculpting Unit).
    • Attempting to view or place a bid on an auction which has ended will now be indicated properly.
    • Added the ability to attach enhancers to an item by dragging and dropping them onto the item’s inventory icon.
    • Avatars are now revived instantly by H-DNA consumables, but movement is restricted for 10 seconds.
    • Added a feedback message in the chat window when inviting an avatar to a team: "Team invite sent to .".
      • Opening Strongboxes can now be performed by using the Spacebar key.
      • Avatars attempting to repair mothership modules will now automatically move within range when necessary.
      • The interaction interface for repair tools now respect the tool’s range with regard to mothership modules.
      • An alert is now displayed in the login window whenever Caps Lock is active.
      • The Market Value menu option is no longer displayed for items that cannot be traded.


    Fixed Issues

    • Fixed an issue preventing the Client Loader from repairing corrupted files upon patching.
    • Added a button in the Folders tab in the Client Loader Tools window to start local data verification.
    • Fixed an issue causing creature names to disappear when hovering the mouse over the buff icon on the creature nameplate.
    • Implemented various client stability improvements.


    Known Issues

    • The Entropia Exchange does not update sell orders while the interface is open. Relaunching the interface will update the sell order information.


    MindArk and the Planet Partners strive to ensure a smooth and problem-free Version Update. Nevertheless, even after extensive testing some issues may arise after release. Such issues are often addressed via mini-patches directly after a release and in subsequent patches. If you feel that the possibility of encountering minor issues or bugs directly after a Version Update affects your gameplay to an extent that Entropia Universe is not enjoyable, please wait until the mini-patches have been released and any last minute issues have been resolved.
