2.4 PTS Version Notes





Global Territory Control

Keeps have been added to new locations such as Office Park, Feral Boughs (near Quarantine), Tinker's Dam, The Dump, Fender Gate, and Park City.
All Keeps have Keep Defense missions that are level-appropriate for the area.
Fixed a bug that caused Keep Defense missions to award too much experience.
Faction Control Points have been added to Waste Farm and Hollister Point. The Faction Control Points in non-PvP areas have been removed.
Keeps in Conflict Towns add influence to the town, just like Faction Control Points.
Keeps in Conflict Towns are only immune for 30 minutes.
· All Timed Conflict Towns have been changed to regular Conflict Towns.

· Fixed a bug that would cause Conflict Towns to delay changing to a new owner. The threshold for controlling a town is calculated differently and will often be lower than before.


Faction Changes

Shoulder factions have been removed. If you run a mission for a faction, you only earn points in that faction and lose points in the opposite faction. If you kill a player or NPC of a faction, you only lose points in their faction and gain points in the opposite faction.
Players must now choose a single faction to participate in most PvP activities, access faction-gated merchants, or chat in a faction channel.
To choose a faction, talk to a faction chooser NPC in one of the faction towns in Sector 2 or Sector 3.
You can choose any faction with which you have a positive reputation. It does not have to be your highest faction, but you can only have one chosen faction.
Your chosen faction replaces all the functionality that used to depend on your current highest faction. It will determine which faction channel you are in, which faction Control Points and Keeps change to when you capture them, whether you can access faction merchants, and what faction you give to other players when killed.
Once you choose a faction, you are locked into that faction until your reputation with that faction becomes negative. If your reputation with your chosen faction is negative, your chosen faction will be reset, and you can choose a new faction.
Players do not earn faction points from PvP kills if they or their target have no chosen faction. Players do not earn faction points from PvP kills if they have a positive reputation in their target's chosen faction. Players do not earn faction points from PvP or PvE kills if they have 0 points with the target's highest faction.
Players no longer earn less faction points as they gain ranks in a faction.
Faction gains from PvP kills are now treated the same as those for PvE kills.
Players who enter a PvP area below their level now get a debuff that caps some of their stats to a lower level. The old Equalizer debuff has been disabled.
The faction harvesting knowledges are now only active if you have chosen that faction. Players can only harvest from nodes for their chosen faction.
· When you gain a Faction Control Point, the bonuses now only apply to players in the area with the same chosen faction. It does not apply to players on the same team as the player who took the point.



Frontend

· Added a new feature that allows players to track up to five missions at once. Waypoints for all tracked missions are displayed on the map and radar.
· Each faction now has a distinct color on the radar and nametags. Players will show as this color consistently instead of relative to your highest faction. (CHOTA/red, Traveler/purple, Tech/blue, Lightbearer/orange, Vista/green, Enforcer/brown)
· Help tips now stay closed when closed via the menu icon. If the window is not closed (you can see the arrow) they will always display upon reaching a new help tip.
· The Trainer radar icon has been updated for all merchants that have "Trainer" in their label that shows under the name. A map filter has been added as well, allowing players to separate trainers from other merchants. Trainers are now displayed as a light bulb on the radar and map.
· The default pack tabs for new characters have been from single tab to Gear (armor and weapons), Ammo, Usable, Tradeskill, Mission and other.
· The default pack icons size for new characters has been changed from “small” to “medium”.
· Modified the size of the gear window to reduce amount of unnecessary space.
· Added a menu option to change the size of the players radar.
· Added new icons for mounts on the map and radar. Living mounts now appear as a blue horse head and vehicles now appear as a blue key.



PvP

Players now earn reduced experience for player kills in Blood Sports. Players who are at the level cap for their bracket do not earn any experience.
Experience and Faction gains in PvP now work the same as DeathToll. Each time a player dies in a short period of time, the amount of Experience and Faction they give is reduced in a triangular fashion (/3, /6, /10, /15, /21). Previously each kill lowered the experience by 20%.
Fixed another issue that could cause players to not respawn in Blood Sports.
· Blood Sports DeathToll gains are now affected by account level and buffs.
Faction Control Point DeathToll and Faction gains are now affected by account level and buffs.


Art

· Added red shaded areas on the mini-map to help distinguish PvP areas.


Camps, Harvesters and Progress Towns

Harvesters can only be placed in Territory Control areas that are a high enough level to generate the resource they create.
The barrel spawn rate for uncommon and rare components has been reduced.
· Harvesters now persist through a restart.
· The way all camps and related systems calculate time has been changed. Camps no longer count down their time while the server is offline. This new method may be less accurate. If you place a camp and the duration if off by more than 5 minutes, please report this.
· Fixed an issue that could cause Progress Town attackers to become PvP flagged or have their loot rights transferred to an NPC.


NPCs

Fixed the Social values of several merchants.
Regular merchants in Camps and Progress Towns now have slightly better prices for players with points in Social.
