Hello Commanders!

We the next update coming your way. This update comes some behind-the-scenes stuff, but also some new features.
We will take offline for patching around 08:00 – 10:00 UTC and return them back online after around 30 – 60 minutes, if there are no unforeseen interferences.

Please make sure to test all these changes thoroughly and let us know of any issue you find in the PTE forum!

Changes & Bugfixes
  • Calibrating Support weapons to or from shielded bases has been removed
  • A timer for the remaining substitution time on an account has been added
  • Decimals have been added to the military strength overview in the alliance roster
  • A few minor UI issues have been fixed
  • You can now view the relocation window while under Relocation Cooldown to see your relocation tier
  • A bug was fixed that could cause players starting on a new world to start with relocation tier 1 instead of 0
  • In the resource transfer window, the yellow font color has been adjusted to be more readable on the gray background
  • A bug with the substitution day counter was fixed that resulted in more days counted than substituted

New Feature
  • Bases can now swap positions, provided both bases are able to move

  • I hope that in this patch the active base color that I asked to improve has been improved because my eyesight did not differentiate the base with more brightness among the others. I cross my fingers. O:-)

    In the Resource Transfer window? This might have slipped past me.

    How do we access the new feature of bases swapping position?
    I've 2 bases either side of a poi and can see no way of a simple swap in the menu when selecting a base and can't select two bases at once from the map.


    Also, whilst seeing the offence and defence to two decimal places is useful, I'd have preferred to see it at 2 dp for all values instead of a mix with some at 0 dp, some at 1 dp and most at 2 dp. Consistency is important in my view!

    Bases are swapped like buildings or units in your base. Use the move option and designate one of your bases as destination - they will swap position if both are able to perform a move action.

    No, no, in the bases column: https://prnt.sc/skfooq

    You proposed to me something like this color: https://prnt.sc/skfpv8 but I saw that it has not changed and continues as before. :'(

  • I may not have understood it well but ...
    - I select one of my bases
    - I activate the option "Move"
    - I choose another of my bases as a destination and the following message appears:
    https://prnt.sc/skgw8q

    With tampermonkey activated and deactivated

    Yep - that is a bug you're reporting. The purpose of the PTE if fulfilled :wink: They have been working on it since it was first reported.

    BTW there are others :smiley: Hint: Look at world time on the bottom right info panel and in the options panel :smile:

    OK, thank you, gamerdruid!

    I only test some scripts and part of the fixes.

    A short period of downtime while 20.2 corrections are made is happening now. Expect a prompt return for the PTE.

    EDIT: and it's back!

    It seems that some bugs reported are still not fixed so expect further downtime this week!

    I suspect that was not on purpose - an error. Make the most of it while it is still there!

    EDIT:
    Having contacted the developers - it wasn't intentional and is likely to be reset back to 1 cheat only.

  • It seems to me a very good idea to have the PTE server because this way the script developers can start to make modifications to them (and also the associated tests) to have the new versions working at the same time that each new patch is put into production.
    New game version = new script version (if needed)

  • The PTE server is up again but "change server" button don't works - https://prnt.sc/sor73d
    If you click on it, nothing happens.
    Yo need to reload game and then, change server correctly.

    Yep - they made a few corrections to the code - the downtime was announced in-game to update the server

    The base swap works and the time display for the world in the info panel on the bottom right is now corrected.

  • Yes, I saw that the time issue was corrected. ;-)

  • Who said that this color is the best solution to yellow because it looks great?

    That looks better, yes but that looks good ... :-(
