Default Colony Ship - Update Notes

May 13th, 2021, 18:07
Pladio spotted some updates for Colony Ship:

Update notes for May 12, 2021

Party Management:

- Click on the party icon to the left of the inventory icon to open the Party Management screen
- Set designated specialists to handle skill checks when clicking on objects (to avoid switching characters manually)
- Heal your characters with medkits (the amount healed is modified by your biotech skill)
- Set auto-heal after combat (using available medkits).
- Set auto-reload weapons after combat (starting a fight with an empty gun is a thing of the past now)

Improvements:

- You can now give implants to your party members based on their preferences
- Added more party banter in the Armory and Hydroponics
- Added new interactions when exploring Hydroponics
- Added an option to steal a badge from the Regulators HQ
- Added a sneaking opportunity in Camp Reid in Hydroponics
- Added some loot in Zeke's backroom, plus a different way in
- Added two extra stashes in the Pit
- You can now train party members (for now the same trainers as before, will consider adding more based on the feedback)
- Can't see beyond the vault door in the Armory before you open it (limited 'fog of war')
- You can now use Streetwise to get a better reward from Abe
- You can now use Persuasion to get a reward for Zeke
- You can now squeeze some money from Braxton and Jonas for helping them
- You can now ask Sarah for a reward because helping someone for free doesn't sit well with some players

Changes:

General

- Tweaked armor stats
- Tweaked the prices of several items.
- Items now sell for 10% of the price.

Enemies:

- Starfish now recovers 10 HP when draining
- Starfish DR is now 10/8/6 (from 6/4/3)
- Tweaked enemies' equipment: they have more weapon variety and extra thermal vision.

- Changed Faythe's Thief feat. Noise -1 and stealth skills' increase
- Gunfighter: added "Grazes do +2 damage"
- Removed Master Trader feat and refunded 1 feat point to characters that had it

System:

- Increased weight of misses on defense xp distribution.
- Slightly reduced skill gain from attack and defense XP
- Improved AI attack selection, especially for shotguns when the enemy is engaged in close combat

Fixes:

- Fixed a door in the Armory being usable in stealth but not in combat.

- Fixed some cases when grenades could be thrown through the floor (from the first floor to the second)
- Fixed T-pose animations happening in some rare cases
- Starfish sounds are now affected by volume controls properly
- Fixed Swing attack becoming unusable after spending AP on other combat actions
- Fixed doors incorrectly executing opening/closing scripts on game start
- Gadgets don't stay active after ending/exiting stealth anymore
- Fixed incorrect combat rolls when attacking turrets
- Fixed shots sometimes missing starfish if it's displaced after the 'hug'

Out of curiosity, is it possible to remap the keyboard now?

It's a bit of a project. We'll definitely do it, the question is when. It needs the UI and code, plus adapting every UI to remapped bindings (the shortcuts like C and I are hardcoded now).

Since we have only one programmer now, so either he's working on key binding for the next 2 weeks or fixing more important issues/working on improvements like the party management screen, etc. His current task list will keep him working non-stop for the next 2 months.

A user on Steam suggested adding a UK keyboard to your keyboards and then pressing ALT-SHIFT to switch between them when you play.

Thanks for the reply!
I'm aware this is not a priority, only a small part of players have this issue. It's mainly to know when I have to update and try, I'll keep an eye on the logs.

Nice to know it's still on your radar!

I've tried that and could make it work, but it's awkward at best. I'd rather wait, I'm not in a hurry
