It also fixed a wording glitch with dueling where, when you lost, it said you gained exp from the duel, when you actually lost it... It now says you lose such and such exp for being defeated in a duel.

1/4 exp from UN prot-cols

Post by Party » Wed Sep 12, 2007 12:56 am

Obviously some one wasnt thinking AT ALL when the thought of this one... Lets not think about PAX games at all and let people win by just killing NPCs... Oh and why dont we just put this into action 20days into PAX BigBang... lol if you didnt touch the U.N protected cols and bumped up the out of protection cols there wouldnt be a problem and IGPs would get extra exp on PAX which would be fair... We are not happy... especially because with the lag this game gets cant kill any NPCs... :roll:

The Patches

When I first started playing the game back in June of 2005, the game only took up about 50 Megabytes of memory. Now its taking up about 150! This is because of the many patches to the game. Since June of 2005 there have been over 150 patches!

I was thinking that most on the forums are unaware of many of the patches as they were not affected by them. It would be interesting to list the various patches and their known effects. Hopefully some of the vets will contribute to this so that we as a community can see the various changes to the game over a period of time. The game as it currently exists is totally different from the SGE that I first began playing. I will try to list them in the order that I remember them. Maybe someone (drifter101, peace, lagkill etc.) can add the patch number or any that I forgot about.

The first patch that I recall was the original cash cap patch - 10 Mil per colony/100 mil bank.

Laser wall/NPC patch – NPC’s aggressively attack laser walls – “there was too much lag on the servers created by the laser walls”

Galactic recession patch – crashed the cash on colonies to about 1 million

Tax Patch – changed tax rates so you could no longer produce money with colonies set on 0%. Used to be that with cash on the colony your cash would grow by simple interest.

Weapons Factories cap – used to be unlimited – this patch limited it to 250 of each type

Weapons Factories cap revision – increased from 250 to the current 500

Pollution patch – forever changed the face of the game – created a constant growing pollution problem – per pollution patch colonies at Jubilant and Unity would not produce pollution.

Rep Patch – ended rep changes from dying on deployed defenses. No more rep wars.

Pirates Patch – Pirates can now stay at ports

Research Patch – made getting the final researches done much more difficult

XP Patch – ended rebangs on permas – 10 million xp cap

Gravity Patch (293) – The “I can’t move patch”

Democracy patch (294)– Democracy no longer produces nukes – laser damage reduced by 20%

Colony identification patch (295) – your colonies highlighted in the system


the first one is when i started i remember the old flames from the ships...

At one point all the players on BS got dc-ed at nearly the same time. then had a I love you man! of a time with residual packet loss.

But the planet freeze doesnt seem to be an issue so far.
