BUG SMASH: Tribble Maintenance and Release Notes – August 7, 2015

Coldsnapped just added an updated the release notes for Tribble:

We will be bringing down the Tribble server for maintenance to apply a new update: ST.52.20150726a.7.


  • R&D Special Consumable Projects:
    • Removed “x5” from project titles.
    • Updated descriptions on all of these items to indicate that players will receive 5x on a Success and 10x on a Critical Success.
    • All new R&D consumables now have Activation FX/Sound FX.
    • Resolved an issue with the Projectile Schools’ consumables, Kinetic Amplifiers, so that they properly work with Torpedoes and Mines.
  • Borg Space Enemies: Instead of the “Assimilate Ship” debuff lingering after the Borg that cast it is killed, it will now end shortly after the caster is destroyed.
  • Go Down Fighting: Damage Resistance component no longer requires outgoing damage, and no longer stacks, but has been increased from +5 to +20.
    • Tooltips for this ability have been improved to clarify its functionality.
  • The NPC ears for Preservers can no longer be used by players.

Server Performance:

  • Resolved an issue which was causing graphics related crashes when launching the game YAY
  • Resolved a number of issues where powers were using too many processes when used which would cause lag to occur for players and also the map itself.
    • Examples: Crystalline Entity “Re-Crystallize” Removal, Borg “Assimilate Ship,” among many others. YAY x2
  • Several individual player powers have been re-built to reduce their impact on server performance.
    • For all of these rebuilt powers, the functionality that players experience has remained completely unaffected, though some tooltips may be displaying differently.
    • The list of abilities updated in this pass include:
      • Attack Pattern: Beta o.O – looking forward to test
      • Kemocite-Laced Weaponry ditto
      • Directed Energy Modulation ditto
      • Suppression Barrage
      • Assault Squad Officer that grants Point Defense Turret to Boarding Parties
      • Shield Distribution Officer that restores Hull while under the effects of AP:Beta

Known Issues:

  • Graphics and performance related issues causing some players to experience consistent crashing.
  • Some players are not able to reclaim the Breen Chel Grett and the Dyson Science Destroyer.
