EiF Patch Notes 04/16/2022

Here are the notes for the patch released on April 16, 2022, debuting The Great Fashion Disaster!

Content

  • The Galactic Egg Hunt is on! Kari Saarek is coordinating this year’s Egg Hunt. Start by visiting Kari in Pandath on Taanab. This year’s egg hunt uses the new camtono for its egg containers.
  • The egg hunt this year has 98 eggs to be found, plus 15 additional eggs for completing the ski speeder race.
  • Adjusted prize vendor for the egg hunt.
  • The first player to collect all 113 eggs and report it to Halyn will receive an exclusive prize: choice of a Mustafarian bunker or an AEG-77 Vigo gunship house!
  • POIs have been added to Kuat.
  • The Hutt Outpost on Rori has once again been occupied by the Hutts after driving out the stray NR forces.

Crafting

  • The Great Fashion Disaster is upon us.
  • All wearables (and recolorable furniture) have been moved to a unified color palette. Outfits should be much easier to coordinate colors.
  • Master artisans can now craft dye kits for clothing, armor, and furniture. To recolor an item, use the radial while an object is in inventory (along with a dye kit!) and a “recolor” option will appear.
  • Armor can no longer be recolored without a dye kit.
  • Electric-style lamps now cast white light instead of yellow.
  • Additional lighting color options are now available as alternate appearances when an architect crafts electric-style lighting – green, orange, purple, blue, yellow, and red lights are available (in addition to standard white).
  • A small puck-style light has been added to architect to accomodate more lighting options.

Player Cities

  • Chandrila is now properly available for player cities, using Corellia-style buildings.

Misc

  • If a player answers a holocomm message on its last ring cycle, they will no longer receive a “You have missed a holocomm” message.
  • Fixed HQ overload shutdown not working on starports during GCW invasions.
  • Fixed combat walkers having their own AI. Again. Probably. Maybe. (Is this a meme yet?)
  • Vreni Island’s GCW spawns now properly depend on Corellia’s GCW status.

EiF Patch Notes 03/25/2022

Here are the notes for the patch released on Friday, March 25th, 2022.

Client

  • Toolbars can now be locked to prevent unwanted changes, courtesy of Phoenix. No longer will you accidentally pull an ability off of your bar in the heat of battle and then immediately forget what was there in the first place.

Itemization Updates

  • New loot has been added to certain groups.
  • Dye kits for clothing, armor, and furniture added in preparation for the Great Fashion Disaster. These are not yet craftable but will be available in a future patch. (Phoenix)
  • Added single-hand gloves as alternate appearances for a regular pair of gloves when crafted by a tailor. While only appearing on one hand, they use the same slots as a regular pair of gloves. Cosplaying as Luke has never been so easy.
  • Ithorians can now wear the invisible helmet per player request.

Combat

  • New weapons added to be available in future content.
  • Combat walkers should now work as intended and are no longer invincible or prone to crashing the server when a pilot tries to take control.
  • Panic shot is once again properly weapon agnostic.
  • Restored Force Lightning Blast to master Jedi.
  • Changed launcher pistol animation to be something less seizure-inducing.

Misc

  • Merges from SWGEmu to fix harvester droids, pets, and some other misc issues. Pets should no longer betray and turn on their owners, and harvester droids should no longer be as lazy..
  • Devaronian skin palette adjusted.
  • Witch characters now have high-resolution eye textures.
  • Rori snapshot changes for Exchange event.

EiF Patch Notes 03/01/2022

Here are the notes for the patch released 03/01/2022.

Player Races

  • Playable Arkanian race added. Arkanians are egotistical masters of genetics, and a perfect fit for an aspiring bioengineer.
  • Playable Echani race added. Echanis are obsessed with personal combat, with racial bonuses to center of being.
  • Dathomiri witches should now have new face markings available.
  • Chiss characters have received a visual upgrade. New customization options are available, such as eyebrows, makeup, etc.
  • The EiF team experimented with the new-canon style Chiss eyes. The team has chosen to release a mod for that instead of including it in official server files. If you wish to try it, download this file and drop it in your EiF directory. To uninstall, simply remove the file.

Server Changes

  • The SWGEmu AI update has been integrated into EiF code. This was a massive undertaking requiring a huge number of changes on EiF to implement the code. Bugs may result – please report issues promptly.

Misc

  • NPCs may now holster their weapons after exiting combat.
  • Weapon DPS calculation reworked to include a player’s speed modifiers and the speed cap. DPS is calculated as a base-level /attack with the weapon in question.
  • Smugglers examining weapons and armor will now see information on the slice performed on the object instead of the generic “This weapon has been altered by a smuggler and may bring unwanted attention from the Empire” message.
  • Heavy weapon specials have had their range restriction removed.
  • Worn weapons implemented. (Not yet available to players.)
  • New armor added. (Not yet available to players.)
  • New weapons added. (Not yet available to players.)
  • Nexu mount fixed.
