Patch Notes Posted on December 7, 2011 by Meg Today’s patch fixes a couple bugs with last week’s VU. The Athenian Headscarf is now colorable, there are a few changes in quest text for clarity and typos, but the most important part is that DiNapoli has another mission for you. Secret message to anyone frantically crafting clothing in hopes of getting the blueprint for the Athenian Headscarf: There is another way to get the blueprint besides in the crafting loot pool! But at last check, the Athenian Tunic were selling for a tidy markup, so all that crafting isn’t going to waste. New Missions A Favor For DiNapoli: In this mission, players return to DiNapoli trying to get on his good side in order to get a blueprint for the Trojan Breastplate, and DiNapoli needs a gift delivered to his old pal, Creon. Mysterious Ingredients: What’s up with the papoo and boar guts, anyway? There are also some other activities for you to find, but discovering them is half the fun! Known Issues When DiNapoli tasks you with delivering a gift to Creon, you will not get an item. The mission does progress successfully when you go to Creon and open a dialogue with him. Sorry, you’ll just have to imagine you’re carrying a six-pack of delicious Honeybrew Lager. Some players are reporting that if a player attempts to complete Armor of Heroes but is missing a required item or two, DiNapoli steals the items and doesn’t let the player add any more. Support is currently looking into this issue. For now, make extra certain you have everything DiNapoli is requesting. Usage note: In any of the item-related missions, you will need to drag the required item over to a questgiver to complete the mission. If, for whatever reason, you drag the item and drop it elsewhere on the screen, outside the questgiver’s pop-up, then the item disappears. If this should happen, shut your inventory, and reopen it, and the required item will reappear. Planet Arkadia Update 2011.9 (7th Dec 2011) Important Note on the Underground AreaThe underground area is not yet available, we strongly recommend not downloading it as there is no advantage doing so prior to its release - you will still need to download the final content when it is released at a later date.New Content Rumours have spread that an unnamed organisation lost several cutting tools when their mining team first breached the Scoria caves. Balance Changes Scoria are somewhat less obsessed with Mindforce chips. Issues Fixed Improved the visuals for some larger models at lower graphical settings. Fixed misaligned Material Textures on some customisable furniture surfaces. Improved lighting in Celeste Quarry, reducing the excessive brightness on lower detail settings. Known Issues Estate Terminals show the wrong colour when set to private. Some categories in the Trade and Technician Terminals are missing text. Crates in some outposts still dare to defy gravity. Weapon sounds can vary from shot to shot on some weapons. Limited Blueprint Book cannot be coloured or textured. Some types of eyewear can appear outside or on top of the Armour Helmet. Skin from some face/head shapes can be seen when wearing Armour Helmet. Televators in buildings may link to the building next door in rare cases. Feran are afraid of getting too close to the ground .
