  • Adding Icons for Armor Alteration Tech Tree Packs
  • Adding in base datatable setup for the Bioled leather armor set, currently in the data tables as hard leather, entries are just a copy of the base leather set until we do a stat and recipe pass, missing dynamics on the chest piece which will be in the next pass


  • Replaced a flammable check with verbose logging that was causing clients on dedicated server development builds to crash
  • Fix a couple of issues which were causing some dialogue audio and subtitles to play twice or more in a row for clients
  • Added an auth check to the base travel quest’s overlap event, as previously this meant clients could trigger duplicate dialogue on themselves when they arrived at a quest destination

  • Renaming CriticalStrongPointDamage Stat to be HardenedPointDamage
  • Adjusting Critical Hit Damage Calculation so the CriticalHit Stats are used as a Plus Percent instead of a Percent
  • Adjusting Player Critical Hit Base stat to be lowered from 400 -> 300 – Damage works out to be the same as previous, but each point from critical hits from talents / tools is now more impactful
