The last content update: Altered parts, Final Ascension, item sorting, and more!

Here it is, the last Sector Six content update!

Altered parts:

Level 90+ or altered parts are here!
Altered parts get additional property and their properties scale based on alteration level.
For example, level 90 altered part with alteration level 10 will have properties like level 100 part.
Altered parts start to drop after completing the story.

Final Ascension:

Highest level altered parts require Ascension level, which can be increased by spending XP after reaching level 90.
Also, Ascension level increases the amount of Ascension Reactor's amplifier slots.
Ascension Reactor is added upon reaching Ascension level 1.

Altered instances:

Make Broken Infinity instances as difficult as Absolute Deterioration for an increased chance to get altered parts!

The Signal:

Get all achievements, install an altered part, clear altered instance, and increase Ascension level to unlock an introduction to Sector Six's sequel, Sector Zero.

Item sorting:

The most wanted Sector Six feature is here!
You can now sort items by grade, properties, type and other options - similar to how "Dismantle all"/"Uninstall all"/"Sell all" functions work!

Automatic selling:

Connect to a vendor to set up automatic selling!
While it's enabled, dropped parts of the selected grade range will be turned into units.

Help interface rework:
  • Multiple quality of life, graphical, and control improvements.
  • Help interface button now glows until it's clicked.
  • Updated some data interface entries and added new entries.
Grade name changes:

Replaced grade names - generic, optimized, advanced, fractal, mythical, etalon - with grade numbers - grade 1, grade 2, grade 3, etc.
Original grade names can still be seen in tooltips, elsewhere the game uses grade numbers.
This was done to make grades less confusing.
For example, instead of saying "Mission reward: Optimized part" the game will now say "Mission reward: Grade 2 part".

  • Failing a mission is now a lot faster.
  • Rapid Fire Mode now speeds up all attack abilities.
  • Evolution mechanic improved: Minions now evolve into bigger minions faster.
  • Added level 90 weapon skins.
  • Achievement spoiler: Symbol of Life and Cache achievements can now be achieved in Broken Infinity.
  • Changed XP sound.
  • Made several improvements to language selection systems.
  • Changed item tooltip system: Tooltips will no longer go outside the screen.
  • Ability interface now shows ether cost clarification if Flow Stagnation modifier is enabled.
  • Dismantle all button moved to vendor interface to make space for sort button.
  • New parts are now highlighted and can be interacted with through management: Uninstalled, dismantled, sold, filtered, and sorted.
  • Added flipped versions of a station, deflector, inhibitor, and antenna skins.
  • Item experience boost is now capped at 200%. NA-1, Naonic Archive increases the cap to 300%.
  • Power Shield ability now attempts to cause white wave when activated.
  • Level parts 89 are no longer generated in level 90 missions and vendors.
  • Weapons are now slightly more common.
  • Weapons are even more common in regions 1-4 to help the new players get enough weapon damage.
  • Frailsphere, Pearl of Deterioration no longer halves maximum armor.
  • Legionvault, Fractal Arsenal now also increases double drop chance.
  • It's no longer possible to create level 90+ instance.
  • Improved part tooltips.
  • Increasing difficulty now gives +5% loot quality and +1% double drop chance per difficulty level instead of 10% and 2%.
  • Lodeon's Ultimatum set effect now scales with the number of parts installed: Armor to damage conversion reaches 100% with 80 parts installed.
  • Relics can now be sold for units!
  • For technical reasons it's no longer possible to use anodes on Upgrade Sockets, Amplifier Well relic.
  • Fixed: Instance loot quality does not work.
  • Fixed: Elimination mission objective reminder mentions escorting the carrier.
  • Fixed: Vendor items in Broken Infinity are affected by instance loot quality.
  • Fixed: Scrambler Belt Escalation achievement description spelling mistake.
  • Fixed: Locked parts cannot be uninstalled via uninstall button.
  • Fixed: Crippled Vault relic is preventing level ups from increasing the part limit.
  • Fixed: Area tooltip + The Decision modifier problem.
  • Fixed: Level 75 level up screen does not show that part and weapon limit has increased.

  • Fixed: Controller cursor doesn't stick to the spaceship building grid in vendor interface.

What's next?

Nothing much besides localization updates (Coming soon: Brazilian Portuguese!) and glitch fixes - if they will be needed.

Final words: It took me 4 years to get Sector Six to this point and well... I did it!
I made a game, I made some money, I've become a real game developer, saw players having fun, got positive reviews, the future is promising, all is great!

Thanks to all who supported me during these years =]

Echo #108: The last content update

It's time for me to end Sector Six content development.

For the last several months I've been switching between working on Sector Six and Light of the Locked World.
I love both of the games, but I want to dedicate all of my time to LOTLW, and I can't do much to Sector Six to make it better.

What I can do, I'll try to do with the final update.

This is what it will contain:

Item sorting:

The most wanted Sector Six feature!
It will make it possible to sort items by grade, type, properties, etc. - every option that works with the current filtering system will work with item sorting.

Final Ascension:

Final Ascension will be an endgame activity that gives maxed players something to work on. Experience received after reaching level 90 will be used to increase the Ascension level.
Increasing Ascension level will reward players with random skins from new skin set.
Ascension level will also be a requirement to install altered parts.

Altered parts:

Altered parts will let me add meaningful, scaling item rewards and level 90+ parts without having to increase the level cap.

After the update, all parts will receive a chance to become altered as they are generated.

This is how it will work:

1. Part is generated.
2. The code is run to check if the part should be altered or not.
3. If it is, it gains 1 alteration level.
4. The code is run to check if the part should be altered further.
5. If it is, the alteration level increases by 1.

Step 4 and 5 are repeated until one of the checks fail.

It means that high alteration level parts will be much rarer than lower alteration level parts.

Alteration level will improve part's properties.

For example, currently, the code sets part's maximum armor property like this:

Increases maximum armor by (part level * 250).

After the update it will work like this:

Increases maximum armor by ((part level + alteration level) * 250).

Altered parts will also receive additional property.

High-level altered parts will require Ascension level to be installed.
E.g.: Level 90, alteration level 9 part will require Ascension level 9 to be installed.

Altered instances:

You will be able to spend alloy to make Broken Infinity instances as hard as Absolute Deterioration. Altered instances will have an increased chance to get altered parts.

The Signal:

Reach level 90 and get all achievements to unlock the introduction to Sector Six's sequel, Sector Zero.

Many fixes and changes:

Like with every update, the game will receive a lot of improvements - including increased mission failing time, new part highlighting, evolution mechanic improvements, and old glitch fixes.
I intend to end Sector Six development with 0 known glitches remaining.

In conclusion, this will be a big update!

To clarify, this is the end of new content and reworks development only - support updates to fix glitches will continue.

Hope all looks good, until next time!
