Questions to the developers Winter 2020


Recommended Posts

Dear conquerors of the Star Conflict Universe!

This topic is designed to collect and organize the players' questions towards the developers as well as their answers. In order to provide a better overview and easier search, this topics' priority will be focused on game related content in Autumn.

Answers are usually given daily on weekdays. Developers will read all questions, but questions which are not clearly defined, which are obviously stupid, which are lying on the "surface", or which violate the rules of the forum, will be ignored and deleted.

How to ask questions:
Formulate your questions as clear as possible. Try to ask only important questions. Use the search function before asking any questions, some questions may have already been answered.

The following rules apply to this thread:
1. Posts that do not contain any game related questions will be deleted.
2. This thread is not for suggestions. Any suggestion posted in this thread will be deleted.
3. Any discussion in this subject will be considered as flame and offtopic and will be punished appropriately.
4. The questions are asked towards the game developers and therefore only they can respond.
5. The thread will be cleaned at least once a week. This means that all player posts will be removed and the questions will be added to the developers answers as a quote.

1. Can we have confirmation if the Pirate Destroyers are at the very least working? I ask since none of the vocal community have been able to collect any data or have even seen them thus far - we don't even know where to look.

2. Okay so playable Wood louse dream is shattered, are there any 16-17 Destroyers in development?

3. Can you confirm if the seemingly "bugged" module destruction numbers are actually bugged or an undocumented change? Currently sometimes module destructions do triple the listed destruction number.

4. Are there any planned changes to the "Destroyer" (the alien kind) Open Space encounter? There is currently little to no insentive to participate as what Iridium it gives you can get more from mining and the seed chip drops are rarely ever good rolls and as a result the same Destroyer instance is typically open for multiple days at a time only to return 4 hours after being killed.

5. Are there any plans for PvP map rotations or for the return of some maps to the PvP MM? Some maps have been out of the MM for a rather extended period of time and I'm just a bit curious.

The devs are working on a more discoverable destroyer npc's, they exists it's just that they are difficult to spot/find. There are no rank 16 and 17 destroyers in development. IF you spot a bug of any kind, please report them in the bug section. There are no planned changes to the Destroyer in OS. There will be more PVP maps in rotation in the future.

Will it be possible to obtain the Pirate weapons and Missile Slot Weapons again? It's been half a year since the moon pass it would be nice to make it at least obtainable somehow, DLC or otherwise.

ORCA1911 (Posted )

There are no plans for that yet.

1) Seeing how Ellydium ships are "evolved" by the players, are there any plans of allowing them to grow from rank 15 to 17?

 

2) Will the original special project ships (Mjolnir / Octopus / Saw One / etc.) be allowed to use ship modifiers / active modules from other ships similar to how premium ships are allowed? (e.g. "Spark" can use the active module "Magnetic Distruptor" from the "Appllo" ship but a "Mjolnir" can't)

 

3) Will we be allowed to reroll the affixes on a Seed Chips to get new ones in their place? 

ORCA1911 (Posted )

Ellydium ships will stay at rank 15 for the time being. Secret project ships rely on their customization of passive slots and passive bonuses, giving them access to additional modules would not be a good thing. Seed chips are in their beginner phase, there is a possibility for us to see some additional features regarding them in the future.

  1. From what I've been able to glean from old topics, the Gargoyle(and Dart) weapons and accessory mods come from some event? which isn't running now? Can we expect that event soon?
  2. Any plans for modules to fill the upper level "...And Premium ships of the same type" gaps caused by so many 15+ ships being Special Projects?
  3. Will there be defensive and maybe even drone centric seed chips?
  4. Are there going to be more hangers/free warp zones? Places like Terminal D seem like they should be, is that indicative, or am I just reading too much into the design?

ORCA1911 (Posted )

There will be a Gargoyle/Dart event in the future, stay tuned to the news. I dont understand the 2nd question. Defensive/drone seed chips are not planned for the time being. There will be a lot of changes in Open Space as time goes by, however, introducing more hangars are not planned.

If the Black Ghost is locked till next Halloween :

 

Could we have the possibility to apply the Skin of the ship on other Destroyer?

Are you planning to create other weapons like the "Main Caliber" released in the Black Ghost DLC?

 

ORCA1911 (Posted )

The skin that comes with the Black Ghost DLC can be applied to any other ship and the Main Caliber module can be installed on any other rank 14 destroyer. There will certainly be more weapons with each new ship addition to the game.

Is there any chance that the self destruct option will return. Having to use all my missiles to self destruct when getting pushed Out of bounds by .e.g Gravi Waver is kinda annoying and takes ages.

ORCA1911 (Posted )

Selfdestruct option was removed due to griefing, it most likely wont be introduced back.

Will there be a faction offensive in the near future?

 

EDIT:
Right, wording was a bit vague, meant as in faction offensives to take back sectors cybers have captured. There hasn't been one since the 4th of January.

ORCA1911 (Posted )

It's part of Star Conflict, faction wars are a common thing.

will TAX be reduced in the future?

 

 

is ellydium ships vulnerable to collision damage?

 

 

before removing materials, can you make a notice with certain details at least 2 weeks earlier?

ORCA1911 (Posted )

The tax wont be revised in the near future. Ellydium ships are vulnerable to collision damage more than other ships. For materials in wide use there is always a notice prior to change, just make sure to follow the news posts.

Why was game mode 'Combat Recon' (VIP) removed from the map pool ? Will it ever return or canned permanently ?

ORCA1911 (Posted )

It's among the brawl schedule now, not in regular PvP rotation.

Will Devs consider doing another Developer Livestream with perhaps a Q&A on Discord ? Almost 6 months since announcement of the Credit Ship rework, would be nice to see and hear an in-depth update of progress. If the rework is indeed going ahead I think it'd be one of the biggest patches in recent years.

ORCA1911 (Posted )

It could be a thing, however, it would most likely be in Russian language rather than English but you never know, as for the ship rework, there is no update on the progress yet.

ok i have one last question: are the devs looking for people to help translate the game? i'd like to help translate to spanish, since there's a lot of stuff that hasn't been translated yet

ORCA1911 (Posted )

For the time being no, but you can always post bug reports in the text section.

When will OS sectors be able to be taken back from crystallid control, if ever? I've never even seen it happen. (I mean the zones that crystallids are clearly in control of, like Sanctuary and Collapsed Laboratory, not zones that are frequently contested like Felony Border or Monolith Remains—and Sanctuary in particular has a lot of good equipment that newer players can only get by trading now.)

ORCA1911 (Posted )

The sectors can be won back from aliens, please read the past patch notes for the full details about it.

Would you guys pleeeeaase pop up an event to get Boremys / Executor parts after releasing Scylla ? Still no news about these ships, and I'd love to add them to my roster (if not at least the Executor)...

 

(… 'right, now I know this might not sound very "diplomatic", but… is there something else planned for next update than just the new engineer (and potential bug fixes) ? :))

ORCA1911 (Posted )

Please stay tuned to the news in the near future so you don't miss out on the ships. There will be a lot of other content besides the Scylla ship of course.
