StarCrawlers Patch Notes 16 June 2017

The first patch of our regularly scheduled patch cycle is live with a selection of bug fixes, improvements, and more. Dig in!

  • Crushed major FPS loss in combat after loading a save while on a mission. Big thanks to everyone who sent in reports and information to track it down!
  • Incoming Stuns that are resisted by a target already under the effects of Stun no longer grant the target an additional chance to remove the effect.
  • Weaker Stuns no longer stack onto existing effects - the strongest Stun will be applied.
Force Psyker
  • Purity Prism now deals damage to all enemies immediately on creation and no longer deals damage when absorbing a debuff.
  • Manifest Spirit no longer incorrectly carries charges between missions and properly displays Force Energy needed to manifest.
  • Virus : Overheat can no longer be stacked on a target already afflicted by the virus.
  • Purging Blow now grants stacking Haste for each buff purged instead of only for the first.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause Weapon Specialist to fail to deal initial damage when using a Heavy Weapon.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause Buddy Shield to fail to split damage with your buddy.
  • Upgrade now provides increased damage and damage protection per stack and charges now persist between combats and reset at the start of a new mission.
Maps & Missions
  • The cost per crawler to Wait For New Jobs has been reduced.
  • Fixed an issue with Server Rooms that could cause the Rhyzohm Terminal to become stuck in a loop after interacting with it.
  • HEHS will be less spammy if they catch your profiting off of rare animal parts - they’re still watching though...
New Game+
  • Fixed a rare issue that could cause faction operations against you to carry over to a new game.
  • Lore items collected will be preserved when starting a New Game+ or New Game++.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause item comparisons to default to a character back on STIX.
  • Cerulean Crystals no longer claim to cure all negative status effects and their Time Unit cost to use in combat has been reduced. These changes will not affect Cerulean Crystals already looted.
  • The Rhyzohm Master Key no longer prevents the terminal event from continuing if all use options are exhausted.
  • The Rhyzohm Skeleton Key no longer prevents the event from continuing if the key is destroyed during the event.
  • The Astrohund Skeleton Key will once again function correctly with ship terminals on ship terminals.
  • If you’re feeling especially cruel, the Prototype’s AI Core can once again be trashed.
  • Fixed an issue preventing Emer LT from accruing positive favor consistently.
  • Tec's Engineer Corp now offers an option to exchange favor for an A.N.C.H at Allied rep.
  • New UFP legislation to target Fraud, Waste and Abuse limits death threat mail from certain 3rd party contractors to once per playthrough.
  • The boss L0-K1 has been moved to a higher difficulty tier, generates slightly less healing per stack of Shock on enemies, and being Stunned will prevent the healing effect from triggering.
  • Z0MB1 health and AoE damage slightly reduced. Chance to apply Mutagen slightly increased.
  • Bosses defeated in Challenge and Hardcore should award appropriate achievements now.

We’re happy to announce that StarCrawlers v1.0 is live! First of all, an absolutely massive THANK YOU to everyone who particpated in Early Access. If you reported a bug, suggested a feature or change, or even vented some frustration - you helped make the game better.

That's great! What’s Next for StarCrawlers?
Whoa! Slow down... I literally just pushed the launch button... We are committed to supporting the game from here on out - routine bug fix and improvement patches will be made and we would love to expand the experience with core content updates and even DLC, depending on demand. We'll keep in touch with regular updates to let you know the state of the game and how things are looking for expansion!

About This Game

Crawlers Wanted: high pay, certain risk. Plausible deniability a must.

Build a crew of renegade adventurers on the fringes of space, taking jobs from megacorps to hunt bounties, sabotage rivals and conduct corporate espionage. If you can navigate the intricate politics of wealth and power, you might just survive long enough to spend your hard-won credits.

You’re a Crawler, and that means you work for those that can pay. Asset recovery, commercial espionage, and mayhem for hire are just a few of your crew’s specialized services. If something shady needs doing, chances are a Crawler will be involved. Succeed and you’ll be rewarded with better pay then any corp drone can dream of. Plus, you'll earn the respect of the eclectic assortment of merchants, opportunists and adventurers who make their home in the fringes of space.

Key Features:
  • Wage strategic battles against futuristic enemies with an innovative time unit turn-based combat system.
  • Procedurally-generated dungeons and events create endless replayability.
  • Choose your allies and your foes wisely. Your choices will change how the story unfolds.
  • Eight player classes each with unique abilities, both in combat and when exploring.
  • Randomly generated weapons, armor and gear with upgradeable enhancements.
  • Easy to Hardcore difficulty modes and optional permadeath.
