EiF Patch Notes 11/24/2021

Here are the notes for today’s patch on 11/24/2021

General

  • Upstream merges from SWGEmu.
  • Art updates for several basic SWG swords.
  • Entertainer/Musician instruments can now be moved to a character’s back with /shoulder. (This command is also bindable in keymap, but by default does not have a key.)
  • New characters, on creation, now have at least one skill to accompany their starting profession.
  • Fixed several broken mounts.
  • Fixed TCG bunker ceiling shader.

Profession Updates 

Jedi

  • Force abilities now require mind to execute. Mind is not consumed when a Force ability is used, but a Jedi must have enough mind available to use the Force. Different abilities require different amounts of mind to execute.
  • Crackling energy buff now has a buff icon indicating how many stacks of crackling energy the player has.
  • Crackling energy buff now lasts six seconds and refreshes when another lightning ability is cast.
  • Force Lightning Blast is now available at master Jedi for a wide-cone AOE with high damage, but requires and consumes five crackling energy buffs.
  • Force attacks are now much stronger, but have a PvP damage reduction.
  • Fixes made to multiple Force abilities which were no longer working correctly due to upstream SWGEmu merges.
  • States added to several Force attacks.
  • Jedi lightsabers now execute a Ricochet on a successful defensive roll. While lightsabers still require appropriate secondary defense (for example, Block on a polearm lightsaber), the actual defensive reaction is now Ricochet (which works analogously to Counterattack).

Commando

  • Commando flame and acid specials now properly DoT, including wounding and battle fatigue.

Doctor

  • Doctor specials now use the combat queue

Misc

  • Player-to-player holocomm is now available. When using /holocomm, a new option will now appear to <Call Player>. If a player accepts an incoming holocomm, both players will be able to see a holographic simulacrum of the other player and speak to each other via spatial chat.
