Hi everyone,

we just pushed out new update that mainly adresses the crashes that started happening after the DLC release (that affected even base game users that don't own DLC) but also fixes and changes some other aspects based on your feedback.

Here is the changelog:

  • Adjusted a lot of equipment base stats' and modifiers' min and max values (including the gain per level) to be closer to each other so that higher level items are more consistently better than their lower level counterparts.
  • Ancient Eye/Lout Drone: Increased Headbutt damage from 50% to 70%.
  • Lout Drone: Both melee and ranged damage increased by 1 on all ranks.
  • Adjusted shield damage values on Blaster and removed the possibility to spawn a random extra shield damage modifier on Blaster cores.
  • Added skill (weaponry, tech, medical, scavenging, mental) bonuses as possible modifiers to spawn on weapon cores.
  • Further increased the chance of spawning Janitors and Wurmlings in level 1-3 derelicts.
  • Blasting Charges: Made damage scaling from 6/8/8 to 6/7/8 and now only targets 2 enemies at all ranks.
  • Slightly reduced credits bonus from Mental skill.
  • Reduced a lot of DAMAGE RESISTANCE, ARMOR and EVASION stats on a bunch of enemies.
  • Adjusted INITIATIVE values on a lot of enemies. Affects especially enemies at high levels not having as high values except on some specific "speedy" ones.

  • Fixed issue that could make some of the NPCs inaccessible in the Administration Of Pirates quest.
  • Fixed a bug that could break combat when Psyker/Mental Shield was active.
  • Fixed issue with retreating on a freshly loaded save.
  • Fixed Ice Cover not being targetable.
  • Fixed issue where NPCs kept stopping the player after already having met them.
  • Fixed tile condition icons not showing up on the map display.
  • Added missing status icons to Augment cards.
  • Fixed inventory showing h- eavy ranged weapons as available for ranged weapon - slots, even though they can't be equipped.
  • Fixed missing environmental combat action sprites.
  • Some key shortcut fixes.

Fixes for a crash on startup that was affecting some players. If you still experience crashes, please email the following to [/list]
* The output_log.txt file (located in \Users\<username>\AppData\Local Low\Snowhound\Deep Sky Derelicts)
* The crash.dmp file, if one is generated. This should be in \Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp\Snowhound\Deep Sky Derelicts; the exact location should also be visible near the end of the log file.

Hi everyone,

first of all we would like to apologize for not communicating clearly enough which features announced as part of "New Prospects" DLC are also available to the owners of the base game as a free update not requiring DLC purchase. From your comments on DSD discussion forums and your recent reviews we have concluded that there must be a lot of misconceptions about this subject. Therefore we would now like to clarify it once and for all.

The following newly added game features and elements are available to all owners of the base game free of charge:

Exploration updates:
  • Focused Scan to reveal all objects and activity in a remote location
  • Enemy groups respawn on derelicts, including previously visited ships

Numerous UI updates and improvements:
  • Left-side consumables menu on the scanner screen
  • New buttons for Normal and Focused Scans on the scanner screen
  • Easy-to-spot room condition indicator on the scanner screen

and as a sign of our appreciation for staying loyal and supportive, a special gift - a combat mechanic that was not initially planned to be on the free update list:

  • New environmental combat actions that are usable in exchange for energy during fights, as an alternative to playing regular cards, and can significantly increase your tactical options in combat.

We hope that you'll enjoy it!
