Patch Notes – 11/17/17

Additions

  • As per popular request, the Tatooine Tavern is now available. It can be crafted as a third option on the Player Tatooine Cantina schematic.
  • Added Dathomiri Player City Hall. This city hall has additional functionality, including a guild terminal and cloning point. The cloner can only be used when the city has been registered with the planetary map. The Dathomiri Player City Hall is slightly more expensive to maintain than a standard player city hall.
  • Added new Dathomiri shuttleport & garage.
  • Added new housing options for Dathomiri city: Nightsister and Dantooine huts from the NGE, the Yoda House from the NGE, and two small cave structures from beta.
  • All Dathomiri structures are acquirable only from a dev; speak to Halyn for details.
  • New shuttles – certain starports are now serviced by a YT-2000 freighter, while Tatooine shuttles are now more appropriately older and shabbier. If you have a player city and prefer the traditional shuttle, no change is required. If you prefer the new, “old” shuttle, simply re-drop your shuttleport.
  • New starport added to Lok.

Changes/Fixes

  • XP requirements for musician and dancer have been leveled out.
  • XP requirements for the bounty hunter investigation line have been decreased.

Balance Changes

A note from Halyn and Anishor: Combat balance is a moving target that responds to players finding unexpectedly powerful combinations & ideas on paper not working out in practice. All changes below are subject to change in either case, and we love hearing feedback on the subject.
