[ED] PC Updates 1.3.x "Powerplay" bis 1.3.08

----------------------------------------------------------------------

v1.3.08

This update has the following changes:
- Fix crash trying to update a drones location post physics when attached to a target ship which has no longer got any attach points
- Fix crash on drones when changing authority fails
- Fixed issue with mission cargo generation not storing the starport type on its destinations. Was allowing players to accept delivery missions to outposts with large ships
- Avoid deadlock when a machine (re)connects and the machine also has a pending routing query (from a different machine)
- Request routing data from the server as soon as we receive a sync letter from an unknown machine - may fix some connection issues
- Fix for merging islands in supercruise
- Fix for LAN connection issues (after conencting over lan, if both players had upnp enabled, it was switching back to wan connection)
- Allow recognition of a LAN-connected machine, in cases where Turn had failed to initialise
Add a new appconfig option, RouterPort, to tell the game that a port has been explicitly mapped on the router (another config setting affecting upnp has also been renamed to avoid ambiguity)
- Various telemetry fixes
- Make sure a machine is released from the server if they have disconnected
- Improved invalidation of client-side caching of Powerplay cycle changes
- Low level thread affinities change - possible fix for some stuttering seen on some machines

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Server Update Incoming - 19.06.2015

There are two changes for this update. The first addresses the server stability issues encountered last night and the second tackles the repair cost issue.

The fix should bring repair costs into line according with a module’s cost and current integrity; at zero health the maximum repair cost should be one percent of a module’s base value.

The net result should be fewer trivial repair costs and fewer costs that are crazy high. Overall, repair costs will be higher, but importantly, they will be consistently in accordance with module worth; coupled with the following change for ship integrity, on average overall repair costs should be lower.

We’re bringing ship integrity repair costs into line. Maximum integrity repair costs will be one percent of the ship’s hull cost, down from 5%; still potentially significant, but no longer so high as to tempt Commanders into trashing a ship and paying the insurance premium over fixing it back up.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

v1.3.05

Client change log:

- Localization strings updated
- Fixed various missing text strings

- Retain a discounted hull value when rebuying a ship after dying

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Minor server side update - 12.06.2015

Our server team have now identified and fixed the underlying issues on our servers, that where causing a limited set of star systems to experience issues and not correctly take into account your expansion preperation efforts.

As said in his earlier post:

Michael Brooks schrieb:

We have audited the results of this morning's Powerplay Cycle, and found that a few Powers did not receive the full benefit of your efforts to prepare systems for them to expand into.
If you previously experienced this issue then you should now notice that your hard work in system expansion is starting to pay off.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

v1.3.03

It also contains the following server changes:

- Updated the CC balances displayed for each power (Note that this includes the overhead for number of systems that are controlled or exploited by that power - this is being added in a client update next week)
- Significant performance improvement to the exploration servers

For those Commanders with a lot of unsold exploration scans from before the release of 1.3, we've started to upgrade the older data to make them as quick to sell as more recent scans. This is a background process, so whilst we have added more server capacity, it will likely take most of the weekend to complete.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Server Update - 11.06.2015

We have audited the results of this morning's Powerplay Cycle, and found that a few Powers did not receive the full benefit of your efforts to prepare systems for them to expand into. Unfortunately, this left space for some Powers to expand into a small number of systems that they were not entitled to.

To correct the balance, we have made the following adjustments to Expansion Systems.

The small number of Commanders with outstanding Powerplay vouchers earned by destroying enemy targets in the four lost systems will have received merits and credits for them.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to credit Commanders who have yet to deliver Powerplay Commodities that affect the lost systems, any such cargo will have to be abandoned.

To address concerns raised by those Commanders who were not expecting the first Powerplay Cycle to end this morning, we have reduced the decay so that all Commanders have only lost 6/7ths of the Merits they would normally have lost at the end of a cycle. This affects this cycle only, all future cycles will decay at the full amount.

We currently expect that the cycles will end during our weekly maintenance period on Thursday mornings (07.00 UTC), but we may revise this in the future if balancing and tuning requires it.

As part of our ongoing tuning, we have made another reduction to the costs of integrity repairs.

In order to work out who wins the preparation we look at all systems that are in the afforded top 10 lists of the powers.
Even if someone has done more preparation than anyone else if they can’t stump up the cash the cant prepare and they don’t count.
We then look at systems within exploitation radii of each other we take the most prepared systems and eliminate the others as Control systems cannot be contested and it is easier to eliminate them at this early stage.

This happened with the following systems:

LFT 37 (Sucessful) and Kappa Phoenicis (failed)
Kappa Fornacis (Sucessful) and Autahenetsi (failed)
Kaliki (Sucessful) and Mandh(failed)
Mendindui(Sucessful) and Kaukamine(failed)

If more than one power is preparing the same system e.g. Cartoi which was being prepared by both Aisling and Arrisa both of whom had enough CC the power with the highest preparation wins Aisling had the highest preparation value so took the system in to expansion.
This also happened in Anlave won by Hudson.

These changes have been made and require no downtime or client restart.

We're still looking at some other issues with this cycle such as the command capital allocation between powers.

UPDATE:

Double checking the distance we found that as mentioned Grovichun had been wrongly excluded at 15.3 ly
So we have put that system in to expansion for Aisling Duval.

Thanks to feed back it was noticed that a few existing expansions were aligned to the wrong power this affected the following systems:

Vaka moves from Denton Patreus to A Lavigny-Duval
Kappa Fornacis moves from Zachary Hudson to Zemina Torval

- Make sure we spend fuel when we hyperspace, even if disconnect before the save-on-arrival
- Adjusted military archetypes in war zones, to distinguish them a bit more from lockdowns and the subsequent blockade. Won't interdict clean ships in war, as they are too busy fighting a war to do that
- Made the stars and planets wait until they are ready to render, this will fix planets showing up as white for a short time after entering the game

- Fix NPCs not giving themselves local bounties
- Added ampersand character to text rendering on starports
- Don't allow NPC's to jump if they have 0% hull

- The contents of an asteroid are now deterministic again, and will be the same every time a players logs in and for every player
- A history of mined asteroids is stored per player on the web server. If a player tries to mine a previously mined asteroid, they get nothing
- Asteroids can now contain up to 3 minerals, chunks still contain 2 minerals

- Adjusted some hitcheck were it may be possible to ram your way through a wall in the Coriolis station due to an acute angle in the mesh
