Patch Notes for December 3rd, 2019

Recommended Posts

Advanced Crash Avoidance Technology Implementation

  • The mapserver will no longer crash when attempting to transfer a character from one shard to another before logging it in.
    • Explanation: the previous patch introduced some internal changes to character data, and those changes are applied when the character logs in. If a character transfer was attempted on a character that had not been logged in, the receiving mapserver detected that the character was missing the new data fields, and triggered a programmer breakpoint in order to warn about the missing data -- which is to say, it crashed. It no longer is so enthusiastic about detecting missing fields on the live servers.
  • The Mission Computer and Oracle will no longer crash the mapserver when a player tries to craft at tip mission while in a Task Force.
    • Explanation: Tip missions are really contacts, and crafting one adds a contact to your list. While a player is on a Task Force, it can only have one Contact available, and trying to obtain another caused the mapserver to freak out and crash. It has now been taught that it can just refuse to give the character another contact instead.

Does this mean that character transfers are re-enabled?

Dang still waiting for Tanker and PVP updates.

Well this was more of an emergency patch than anything else. Downloading now but hopefully I can get into my base again 😀

It's downloading most of the game again, I think? I guess it's replacing big files.

Same problem with the Tequila Server. What would be the reason that it needs to re-download rather LARGE files if all it's adding in is an advanced crash reporter?
