  • Added new Visual Effects when transitioning into Extended and Empowered Combo for melee attacks.

  • Added Primal Quarks into the game. Primal Quarks are another version of the Quarks players faced before, with new and stronger attacks.

Improvements

  • Improved enemy spawning mechanics. Now bosses will always have the most basic Quarks in their area to help players replenish ammo.
  • Improved most bosses' attack patterns, behaviors, and reworked some of the bosses to be more challenging. They will also have varying attacks in different difficulties.
  • Improved most Quarks attack patterns to have them attack roughly much more frequently from every direction when they surround a player.
  • Increased Credits gain multipliers from various sources.
  • Improved Thrusters VFX

  • Improved UI effects and optimization, you might now see some distortion with some notifications and menus. There is also a slight skewing in various UI to provide a more "monitor screen" feel to the game.
  • Improved mission selection UI.

  • Improved input responsiveness, players should now be able to continue moving after an interruption.
  • Improved Mission 8 performance.

Adjustments

  • Composite Nanorobotics, Full Metal Jacket, and Binary Monarch has been split into two nodes. Their downsides have also been split between these two nodes, so players can choose how they want to approach these benefits and downsides.

  • Replaced Energy Regulator and Overdrive Systems with a more generic node as well as playstyle changer node, providing more methods to tinker with benefits and demerits.

  • Replaced Efficient Thrusters II and Afterburners II with a situational boost tech, providing something similar to an invincibility frame at the moment at the cost of Fuel Burn Rate. Please check them out.

  • Adjusted Close Combat weapons stopping power, they will now stop enemies more frequently.

  • Slightly adjusted Close Combat combo damage for both ground and air attacks. Latter parts of the attack combo will hit for more damage than combo starts and dash attacks.

  • Removed Weight calculations from all weapons. With that said, we have also reduced other stats that are tied to acceleration from almost every node to balance the benefits gained from the removal of weights except for nodes that are dedicated to acceleration itself.

  • ALL shooters have their damage tweaked by a very little margin (around +- 5%).

  • Detonator ammo is reduced by around 50% unless you invested into Magazine Load, which will reduce that number to around a 25% nerf instead.

  • Adjusted warhead bullet launcher's damage multiplier to be higher by around 40%.

  • Adjusted bullet and energy cell drop algorithm and enemy spawn in boss rooms. As long as you defeat the constantly spawning Quarks, you will have ammo.

  • Adjusted enemy's property weakness down a notch. Using the advantage property will now deal up to 50% more damage to enemies.

  • Removed Nitrogenic Slugs and added a generic node alongside another non-generic node.

  • Redistributed blueprints droplist. Story missions will be a more targeted drop while Hunting Grounds have a larger drop pool and Challenge Missions have the largest amount of blueprints available.

  • Moved Weapon Slots related nodes towards Resource and Item drop nodes. Players that have more weapons that allowed equipment will not be forced to remove them, but you will not be able to re-equip them unless you developed the new weapon slot nodes.

  • Reworked most of the property damage nodes as well as shield-based nodes to promote the playstyle properly.

  • Balancing Hydraulics has been integrated into Protective Coating and Saintess Bulwark. They now have an increased total attack buff on lowering shields. Balancing Hydraulics is also replaced with a shield node that provides another shield-based playstyle.

  • Adjusted Photograph Mode BGM to our own original soundtrack.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed some parts' decals not showing correctly on some parts.
  • Fixed some parts disorientation.
  • Fixed Accelerated Boosters not able to be equipped correctly in its tier.
  • Fixed shields recovery not working correctly with nodes that reduce shields regeneration.
  • Fixed some bugs that could cause crashes in Mission 8.
  • Fixed a notorious flashbang bug that happens randomly when painting parts.
