Elite: Dangerous - Change Logs

Post by KABLE » Fri Jan 09, 2015 9:18 am


All of the patch note in this topic are direct from Frontier and as such all credit is to Frontier for providing this information.
It is also suggested that Frontier be your first choice for patch note information, but you are also encouraged to use this forum for your convenience.

Update 1.04 Incoming
update 1.04 is incoming and everyone will be removed from the server at 2.30 pm GMT while we apply the update and make the new client available. Here is the change log for the update:

- If a station somehow loses it's parent then move it to another body so players at that station can load
- Prevent inconsistencies between client and server in which parts of a sector are and are not occupied
- Some fixes to meta-data that were being disguised by an issue with inconsistent generation
- When deciding if we should go hostile to a faction we just shot, consider whether the target has a local bounty rather than a bounty with their own faction. Prevent people being attacked by the police after attack nearby wanted targets
- Fix only the first consequence being applied to the universe state when completing a mission
- Set killer before we do ship death - fixes problem with players not getting bounties or reputation when they kill other players by breaking critical modules
- Reduce likelihood of server disconnects from stellar forge server queries
- Fix mouse control if galaxy map opened with key binding when in outfitting
- Updated exoplanets Kepler 438 b and 442 b
- Add produced by and consumbed by information to all trade goods (except rares)
- Telemetry added to try and figure out why some machines are failing to load resource files
- Remove the terraforming data for Pareco system causing an assert
- Fix packet loss statistics
- Use the correct absolute magnitude in bolometric luminosity calculations
- Various text fixes

There are some online changes as well which Andy will post in his update, but one change is worth mentioning here - there should be an improvement in matchmaking that should mean you are more likely to see other players if they are in the same region as you.

Edit: The downtime should be less than 30 minutes.

1) if the AI ship recharges its shield to 100%.
2) if a (currently 30 sec) timer runs out.
- Make the system apply to stations as well.
- Large lateral thrusters now have settings consistent with small and medium thrusters. Balanced lighting and fade in/out durations
- Federal Fighter art fixes
- If a ship is scanned by the police and they discover that it has a bounty, don't turn the station hostile, just get the police to attack

- Clear boost state when docked
- Don't scan if the advanced scanner module is disabled
- Landing pad numbers now consistently numbered front-to-back then clockwise in stations (in other words, bones 0 and 12 swapped over, so that pads 1 and 13 are now in their correct places). Also checked Outposts and fixed pad numbers there too, so that the medium pad is always the highest pad number
- Balancing pass on Plasma Point Defence
- Balancing pass on dumbfire weapons
- Rebalanced heat gain in certain weapons (Beam laser, Missile Rack, ECM, Chaff, Plasma Accelerator, Pulse Laser)
- Supercruise lens flares now smaller when close to them

Update 1.1.03

EDIT - added Server side changes

EDIT 2 - we're looking at running another process tomorrow to double check that everybody who should have had their credits restored definitely has. Please make sure you've submitted a ticket - thanks for your continued feedback.

Hi everyone,

Thanks to your continued feedback, update 1.1.03 is scheduled for deployment at 4PM GMT today. The servers should be down for a short while (maximum of 30 minutes) to allow us to implement the changes. See the list of changes below:

- Don’t crash if an invalid system token is accessed in cartographics store
- Prevent crash if scanning and ship dies
- Fix crash opening station services menu with invalid parameter
- Fix case of station flipping and possibly causing mysterious player deaths near station entrance
- Commanders completing a major faction rank-up mission who have already earned enough skill to reach another rank-up mission can now see that mission immediately, rather than having to complete a regular mission in between the rank-up missions
- Fix ampersand appearing incorrectly in mission dialog panel
- Better layout for when community goal tiers are close together in mission dialog
- Fix missing lift audio
- Fix bass in supercruise issue
- Fix repeating docking computer alert audio
- Fix very quiet landing gear audio
- Fix exploration music cutting out unexpectedly and playing a new piece of music immediately after
- Update NPC database
- Various text fixes

UPDATE: Server Side changes

- Commanders entitled to an outfitting discount should no longer be affected by the '401' error when purchasing certain modules
- Commanders flying in ships that require a large docking pad and who logged out at a starport that changed into an outpost in the 1.1 update should be automatically unstuck when they next log into the game
- Commanders with missions affected by a space station name change should find that they've been neutrally cancelled, no penalties should be issued, cargo marked as haulage should be unflagged

For Commanders affected by the issue affecting collision damage between version 1.1 and 1.1.02, we've restored credits lost to:


Commanders who spent money on any repairs between 3pm on 10th Feb and 4pm on 11th Feb had the credits restored to their balances by 6.15pm on 11th Feb.

Ships lost and not yet claimed on insurance

Commanders who had their ships destroyed but were patiently waiting on the insurance screen should have been automatically restored to their previous ship's state by 6pm on 11th Feb. Unfortunately we were not able to rescue the contents of those cargo holds.

Ship loss due to collision damage between 3pm on 10th Feb and 4pm on 11th Feb

Commanders who lost their ships to collision damage and claimed using the insurance process have had credits restored to their balances by 12.15pm on 12th Feb to cover losses for:
- credits spent on insurance payments
- the replacement cost for ship modules or cargo not replaced by the insurance payment

For the small number of Commanders who lost ships that were not a free SideWinder to collision damage during that time, and chose the Free Sidewinder option, credits have been restored to their balances by 1.15pm 12th Feb to cover:
- the approximate replacement cost for the ship hull, modules and any cargo lost

EDIT 2 -

We're looking at running another process tomorrow to double check that everybody who should have had their credits restored definitely has. Please make sure you've submitted a ticket - thanks for your continued feedback.

Thanks again!

Update 1.1.04

Hello there, folks!

1.1.04 has gone live - the servers are up and running.

Client changes:

Bounty vouchers can be redeemed at any starport in a system that also contains the faction which issued the bounty.

Some Commanders are in systems that cannot currently be retrieved from the server database, which has been causing crashes when loading into the game. We're working to identify and repair the systems affected, which includes a change to automatically report the problem system and exit back to the main menu with a load failure message.

Audio for the Imperial Clipper more closely resembles the sound from the 1.07 release.

Improved localisation support for community goals (we're still working through some issues with Russian language support).

Fixed the 3rd decal not displaying properly on the Python.

Fixed a very rare crash triggered by limpets being destroyed.

Server changes

Added more checks for starsystems reported to crash the game. This interim measure will automatically attempt to restore access to that starsystem within 10 minutes of the crash being reported.

Improved logging for some rare failures when selling exploration data.

- You can no longer destroy ships by taking out their docking computer

Server-side changes:

- Fix issue that was not always issuing fines when ships were scanned whilst carrying prohibited cargo
- Ships that were stored in Starports that changed into Outposts at 1.1 have been moved to the closest Starport with a shipyard
- Fix a rare issue that was not always granting first discovery credit to every stellar body when selling exploration data for certain types of star system
An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it.

- Added a missing sound to scanners.
- Fixed some missing audio in the station gui.
- Fixed a positional bug that reduced the volume on the docking clamp.
- Rebuilt the station force-field audio from the ground up to minimise the wild inconsistencies caused by speed and ship differences. This also helps with clipping on some set ups.
- Finished transitioning the Docking Bay lifts to the new animation system, which should bring back some of the missing low end layers experienced in 1.1.

- Addressed rogue low frequency drones from the station reverb that was causing clipping sub-bass tones when lots of activity is present.
- Adjusted the reverb/volume balance of super-cruise engines and music, to reduce the sense that music or engines drop out entirely in favour of the other. Some emphasis remains to keep the mix clean.

Wings Update 1.2.07 Incoming

The galaxy servers will be down for 30 minutes from 11.30 am BST to allow us to update to Elite: Dangerous 1.2.07.

See the full list of changes below:

- Added vibrant paint jobs for all ships except Anaconda (available for purchase from the store soon)
- Crash fix for star system generation
- Fix for crash in TrackIR caused by the disconnect function incorrectly handling the case when the TrackIR is in an error state. Also applied the same fix to FreeTrack
- Adjusted terraforming meta data to prevent server error
- When getting close to a capital ship while neutral, it will warn you at ~1KM away and then turn hostile at a few hundred metres
- Treat capital ships like players for assigning kills
- Don’t allow NPCs to kill steal by them hitting the powerplant
- Prevent docking after the police 'notice' that a player is wanted. This is the same reaction with committing a violent crime near the station.
- Network fix to catch some messages delivery bugs
- Fix a case where a ship with damage regions and no shields could try to save a game before its defense data has been initialised, resulting in showing in the GUI as a ship that's unrepairable at 0% health
- Adfjusted Type 7 and Viper collision mesh to make them a bit harder to get stuck in the starport entrance cage
- Various text fixes

Server-side Changes:

- Decriminalise Limpets
- When changing station ownership after a conflict, always treat system controlling stations as more valuable than anything else
- Fix Commander Stats for selling level 2 and level 3 survey scans
- Various performance and reliability improvements

Thanks everyone.
