    Welcome to Publish 1.0! Our first Roadmap Milestone. Update Notes:

    Mysteries of the Force
    Start your journey to becoming a powerful Jedi, constrained by the era of the Galactic Empire, which poses unique challenges as a thriving Force Sensitive community to take in a youngling for training is nonexistent. Consequently, becoming a Jedi will be a demanding, stimulating, and individualized experience for every inhabitant of the Star Wars Galaxy. Discovery of The Force will require exploration on group and solo adventures throughout the ground and Space. Everything encountered along the way, from artifacts and horticulture to creatures and conclaves, will play a role in your saga.

    • Use the /checkForce command to monitor your progress towards force sensitivity.

    Patch Notes:

    Combat

    • General
      • Damage over time effects will proc at the following rates
        • Bleed - every 8 seconds
        • Poison - every 10 seconds
        • Disease - every 20 seconds
        • Fire - every 5 seconds
      • Fixed an issue preventing a player from using certain commands and skills while stunned.
      • Enabled weapon-specific damage exotics.
      • Increased the effectiveness of healing potency exotics.
      • Increased the impact of accuracy when your accuracy rating is superior to your opponent’s defense.
      • Reintroduced state recovery skills into the game! You can now clear your blind, dizzy, and stun states if you have the appropriate recovery skill.
    • Accuracy
      • Locomotion (movement) and Posture (physical positioning) now have an effect on Accuracy and Defense rolls. The following is a list of different posture and movement bonuses or penalties. Players will want to consider their accuracy from skill tapes + their bonus accuracy based on posture and movement multiplied by what type of weapon they are holding. Then the opposite can be rolled for your defense. Weapon multipliers are:
        • Pistols / One-Hand / Unarmed x 1.25
        • Carbines / polearms x 1.5
        • Rifles / Two-Hand x 1.75
        • Heavy Weapons / Flamethrowers x 2
    • Attack Speed
      • Adjusted the speed cap of every weapon type, so 0.5 is no longer the hard speed cap. Instead, they are as follows:
        • 0.8 modified for Teras Kasi / Unarmed
        • 0.9 modified for flamethrowers
        • 1.0 modified for Pistols and 1-handed Weapons
        • 1.15 modified for carbines and polearms
        • 1.3 modified for rifles and 2-handed weapons
        • 1.45 modified for heavy weapons
      • The Adrenal Boost skill from a Doctor, and the Double Time ability from Squad Leader, will reduce your combat speed by 0.25 and 0.5, respectively. This will not change your weapon-modified speed, instead, it will reduce your cooldown timers. Your cooldown timer is calculated as your modified attackspeed + your ability cooldown. Your execute timer is your modified attack speed + the execution time of the ability.
    • Battle Fatigue
      • The Battle Fatigue mechanic has been implemented. Battle Fatigue is generated over time while engaged in combat and produces negative effects on your character based on the amount of fatigue.
      • Your HAM (Health, Action, and Mind) Regeneration will be depleted when you reach 200 Battle Fatigue by a rate of 0.25% per point, up to a maximum reduction of 25%.
      • The efficacy of cast heals is reduced by up to 75% when you have full battle fatigue (1000 points).
      • Combat Medic, Master Medic, and Doctor now have a new skill modifier, "healing shock," in their trees that mitigates the effects of Battle Fatigue on their healing.
      • You can heal Battle Fatigue in the following ways:
        • /sit anywhere to rest: 4 points per 10 seconds
        • /sit in a camp: 10 points per 10 seconds
        • Watching an Entertainer: 16 points per 10 seconds
        • Watching an Entertainer in a camp: 26 points per 10 seconds
    • Death Cybernetics
      • A bug preventing Cybernetics from properly attaching to your character when you rolled for one after cloning has been resolved.
      • A helper popup message explaining that a cybernetic has been attached after you cloned and providing instructions on removing it will now display the first time a death cybernetic is applied to your character.
