Database Reset: YES Long Term Persistence: Enabled

Known issues

  • When logging into some commodity and refinery kiosks, they can display incorrect Commodity Information and Prevent Sales

Workaround: Try other trade terminals at a different location. Test relogging and trying again. Area18 specifically will error and fail in the Admin Office trade terminals

  • Player is unable to activate mining consumables (Workaround: Toggling scan mode allows consumables to be used)

Workaround: Using the consumables from a different player in the mining seats will work. If you are working alone with the Mole and leave the pilot seat to use a turret, toggling scan mode will help force consumables to work.

  • Illegal drug terminals are missing from their intended locations in rest stops

Workaround: We have temporarily added Slam sell inventories to two junk sites in the PU

  • Player eyes are extra reflective in video
  • Select CRU series station external elevators are missing (CRU-L1 and CRU-L5)
  • The shopkeepers of both Live Fire Weapons and Garrity Defense are stood away from their desks
  • Being arrested with both utility slots occupied causes the player to respawn in prison with a broken multi-tool

Feature updates


  • Balance pass on mission payouts to make them more rewarding
  • Updated NorthRock group bounty price and made them local to systems
  • Changed it so if a bounty hunter kills a PVP bounty the mission is withdrawn rather than failed for any other hunter players with that mission
  • Added warning to refinery terminal letting players know that unselected materials from a ship will be discarded when creating a job
  • Interim pricing adjustment on restocking ship ordnance (Missiles, torpedoes, and Countermeasures)
  • Decreased min and max insurance claim wait times for non starter ships
  • Made interim tuning changes to EVA movement that will allow you to turn more easily and also arrest any spin caused by collision more quickly

Core tech
