Balancing adjustment 02.12.19:
  • Reduction of the luxury bonus: "Once a player rolls a 5 of a kind luxury item in the casino, every ower of the respective luxury item will receive a certain proportion (2% - 20%) of the actual casino jackpot." 
 
Contact list:
  • Contact list extended by a watchlist. Opens up the possibility to highlight players without adding them to the friendlist. The chat trade stays open only for your closest contacts this way.
Drone scan:
  • New dronescan collection mode: A new icon will appear in the resources list at the resource selection/scanner when a player has fully developed both drone research and haulage firm special buildings to level 10 as a requirement.  Activating that icon allows to send a drone without scanning the area for resources. All crates/containers within the drone collection radius will be automatically collected by the drone. For every 5 crates collected this way one drone will be deducted from the warehouse amount (1-5 crates = one drone, 6-10 = 2 drones, 11-15 = 3 drones, etc.) 
Casino:
  • Representation adjustment
  • Luxury items as additional symbols on the slot machine reels
  • Minimum stakes and winnings adjusted (winning levels are subject to change at any time for the purpose of balance adjustments)
  • Rolling a 5 of a kind luxury item triggers a luxury bonus for the owner of the respective luxury item (see article "Luxury bonus").
  • "Autoplay" function prevents sore fingers and defuses the urge of quite a few players to create and use a clickbot (which is forbidden according to our ToS).
  • Rolling the reels has been limited to 500 tries per 24h. The cooldown timer starts from the first try to roll after the last cooldown has expired. Players can rebuy additional rolling tries by using giant diamonds (to a maximum of 5 rebuys per 24h).
Luxury bonus
  • Luxury item owners can now profit from a luxury bonus. Once a player rolls a 5 of a kind luxury item in the casino, every ower of the respective luxury item will receive a certain proportion (2% - 20%) of the actual casino jackpot. The proportion is determined by the auctioned number of the respective luxury item. Owners of unique items receive the amount of the actual jackpot. To accomplish a reasonable probability despite the strikingly increased amount of symbols, per try only a set of randomly chosen and reduced number of symbols will be rolled on the reels (the chance for a 5 of a kind is existent in any case)
News page:
  • New settings option: "Dark mode". Modifies the news page to a darker design.
 
Trade & Mission:
  • With the transport mission being active the requirement is now also visible in the trade dialog

Mine info dialog:
  • possible mine malus/attack penalty is now also visible in the mine info dialog
Rankings:
  • New list: points per day
SDK-Updates:
