    Hi Galactic Survivalists!

    Welcome to version 1.3 EXPERIMENTAL!

    1.png

    The year 2020 is slowly coming to its end - but Empyrion Galactic Survival is not! With the upcoming v1.3 we are adding a bunch of bug fixes, but also several new features and more content.

    One of the main features is the new decals system. The decals feature will allow you to bring custom pictures into the game and add it to structures spawned in the playfields.

    As a second addition, you can now create custom NPC factions and add them to galactic territories, playfields and POI as you like! We are also adding new POIs and new variants of NPCs and Creatures for you to equip your POI structures with.

    Last, but not least, you can test four new main story missions which continue the chapter 1-6 story arc!

    Please have a close look at the changelog below. More info about certain topics, explanations and a chance to give your feedback on them can be found stickied in the EXP feedback forum: https://empyriononline.com/forums/experimental-features-discussion.35/

    ====

    UPDATE: v1.3 (Build 3180)

    Updated to Unity 2020.1

    Player skills:
    - First draft of player skills allowing to change item properties (for now only Damage, more properties will come soon):
    • For now this is only usable with the Dialogue system. There you set up skills with e.g. Player.Skills['yourSkill'] = 1.5.
    • That skill (yourSkill = 1.5) can then be used in the ItemsConfig.ecf to modify the 4 properties you see below (Damage, BulletSpread, etc. If you think other values make sense too, please let us know. BlocksConfig.ecf comes next to change RangeLY for WarpDrive etc.).
    • For example with a Pistol: Mod.Damage: "Damage + Player.Skills['yourSkill'] * 2"
    • That way, properties are different handled per player - depending if the player skilled it or not.
    - Modded item properties via player skills: added BulletSpread, ReloadDelay, Recoil
    - BlocksConfig: added MarketPrice property
    - Added console command 'itemmods' to show the active modifications of the held item of the local player.

    - Added console cmd 'decals' that will reload the decals in the current BP. Added 'decals clip' that will paste an example for decals to the clipboard.

    - Client upload system: files are now sent only in 1MB chunks.

    - Faction.ecf: added new config file to allow defining your own factions in there

    well, I had expected more, can you finally use the crosshair? or is that still so bad. The Senario Invader vs Defender seems to be the most interesting one

    Very very nice update! Custom Factions was something I had been hoping for and it's cool to see it done! Looking forward to playing with the new factions.

    Interestingly - is this all New Year's update or will it still be? :)

    Awesome! Will we ever be able to add our own custom models for NPC factions? I'd love to make a Star Wars mod with the Empire, Republic, etc

    Impressive most Impressive... and this isn't even the Christmas update!

    Now with custom decals I predict multiplayer servers will be spammed with anime waifu ships. Also meme ships, cringe ships, porn/hentai ships, Hitler ships, bronie ships, and of course FURRY SHIPS.

    Yeah, that was my immediate thought. Of course, that's up to the server owners.

    First draft of skills. Is this leading to item modifications? And will this have a tie into character skill trees? Either would be awesome! Both would be really awesome!

    No, only Server Owners / Scenario Creator can setup decals. Players can't do that for now.

    Are you sure about that??
    I was under the impression that THIS is the "Christmas" update.

    It's December already and they plan to release the Christmas update to the stable branch in a couple weeks, which is about how long this update will be in experimental.

    Meaning, this is the Christmas update.

    I'm guessing the water update just isn't happening? or NPC crew?

    Neither of those was planned to happen with this update.

    Will they happen in the future?
    Maybe. Only the devs could say.

    The "skills" thing raises an eyebrow. Aesthetic and narrative conceits aside, I really hope upgrades to item performance don't entail yet more flying around in an SV shooting animals all night. Too much of that grind is required already just to get all the constructor templates.

    Since the skill upgrades are tied to dialogues they will evidently be tied to customized "achievements" from various missions.

    Now seeing that we can alter weapons properties with dialogue (really meaning : during the game vs only before game start in old config system) I wonder if we can make a player get "drunk" and unable to shoot properly when taking a "virtual drink" with a NPC... :D

    This also opens the door for "trainers" that players can visit to get "upgraded skills" or any similar system, for a price or in exchange of services, for example.

    Another one for "There is no mention of fixing the cross hairs", so I presume nothing has been done about it. Still can't see where I'm shooting in the heat of battle then.......

    Generally, we don't know what is planned as there hasn't been a road map unless I missed it?
    Was there a Q&A I missed?

    I sincerely hope they've covered security issues with the custom graphic files uploads. There are security exploits available with graphics files that unscrupulous people could potentially take advantage of.
