Hello Commanders,

we are ready to deploy 21.1 again, after a rather protracted hunt for the bugs that caused several issues on the last iteration we are confident this time! Get ready for testing on the Public Test Environment.
Patch will commence around 08:00 – 11:00 UTC on Friday, January 29. The next iteration of the PTE will have increased max levels by 15 for Players and NPCs. No reset this iteration.

Please make sure to test these changes thoroughly and report any bugs and errors you may find here in the forum. Also, please make sure to take note of the known issues, those will be addressed in the new year.

Changes:
  • The default text for markers has been localized to the language selected in the options
  • A warning message for selling crucial structures has been added
  • Searching the messages will now display results from more than just the first page
  • Searching in lists will now only display matched results
  • Spanish language setup uses common decimal acronyms now
  • Pins for markers, that appear on the border of the game window, will now show the coordinates of the marker in a tool tip when the mouse is placed over them

Bugfixes:
  • The warning for entering the satellite impact area will now trigger in the right area at high level worlds
  • Localization of several in the game texts where improved (thx @nefrontheone, @KAT_Editor)
  • Outposts and Camps should now be able to spawn with their proper levels at max level
  • An error has been fixed when first joining a new world, causing missions and funds not to be loaded until the page was refreshed
  • Supply window should not retain entered values anymore when changing categories
  • The amount of repair-time should now be properly displayed when redeeming multiple crates
  • Timestamps in the alliance member list should now display correct times
  • Virus injection timers should be displayed correctly now
  • Fixed an error caused the page to reload when clicking on the homepage link in the info box in the bottom right corner

Known Issues:
  • Marker icons on the satellite map are not displayed properly
  • A bug can prevent players from accessing their base through the context menu when moving to the same coordinates that an allied marker occupies (as workaround access the base through base shortlist)
  • Selecting multiple supplies for purchase does not yet present the necessary amount of funds/points
  • Clustered up markers may sometimes not display coordinate tooltips if your place the mouse over them

Have fun testing these changes and tell us what you think. :)

See you on the battlefield Commanders!

  • In the previous version 20.3, when the markers on the left side came out like this, you could not click on the bottom one either.
    It seems to be the continuation of the same error. :-?

    Thanks commanders, this is still work in progress and should be fixed soon(tm), before release.

    There is also a couple of extra characters inserted if you try to go to the forum via the link in the info box at the bottom right of the screen.

    Are we resetting again? Matchmatch stated a full reset was coming this week.

    There will be a reset soon - the exact timing is unknown at this stage. The info @EE_Elephterion gave is correct - there was no reset at the time of the patch 21.1 installation.

  • Man what is going on with these patches? I never had a base in the new world and now it seems I have 2, level 80 and I also have the electricity that Russian was crying about on another forum, how can this be, this is sorcery :) no, I will not give the Ruskie his electricity back, sorry.
  • 80? No one test is above 61. I'd be skeptical that anyone on any server is 80 already.
  • Did someone comment that the icons on the world map still do not appear?

    They are aware of this issue - it happened last time too.

  • I've put a notice into the patch notes, this issue is still a work in progress.
