Patch 1.5.0

Author: Administrator Date: 27.02.20 System:

New Faction (T'au DLC)
• The Greater Good
• Initial Challenge: Medium
• Utopia: Each new type of building in a city increases loyalty, each duplicate building decreases loyalty.
• Convert Auxiliary: Convert T’au auxiliaries to your side.
• For The Greater Good: Use your diplomatic influence to crush enemy unit morale.
• Subvert City: Undermine the power and authority of enemy cities to reduce their loyalty.
• Tidewall Shieldline: Cities and outposts reflect incoming ranged damage.
• Supporting Fire: Increased overwatch damage against enemy units next to other friendly units.
• Markerlight: Mark enemy units for a more damaging attack.
• Bonding Knife Ritual: Sacrifice individual gain to restore unit morale for the betterment of the Empire as a whole.
• Drones: Miracles of T’au technology that provide offensive, defensive and tactical support.
• Trade Goods: Purchase resources and even proselytise population.
• Support Systems: Install support systems on battlesuits. Each battlesuit only has a limited number of support system slots.

New
• Added Vespid Stingwings neutral units (T'au DLC).
• Added new item, Dusk Blade: Grants life steal to all melee weapons (T'au DLC).
• Added 20 new achievements (14 for T'au DLC and 6 for Fortification Pack).
• Added 40 new region names.
• Added Jet Pack trait -- movement equivalent of Skimmer, but not countered by anti-skimmer weapons. Heavy Destroyer and Destroyer Lord are now Jet Pack instead of Skimmer units.
• Added Haywire trait to Tentaclids: Increases the damage and ignores armour against vehicles and fortifications.
• Added bits and pieces of new flavor text.
• Faction DLC can now be disabled in the advanced game lobby settings.

General
• Higher player difficulties now produce higher level units (hard +1, very hard +2, ultra hard +3, impossible +4).
• Music is now played in a more randomized manner to minimize repetitions.
• Research and item options now appear even if the corresponding DLC has not been enabled for the game to make it clear a new game must be started with adjusted settings.
• Added "General/TerminateWithMarkContentCorrupt" setting to be able to bypass Steam verifying files after startup crashes.
• Updated localizations.
Balance
• Destroyer Lord now benefits from the Hammer of Wrath upgrade when using Jet Charge.
• Orbital Bombardment now has 8 instead of 12 accuracy but Apocalyptic instead of Large Blast.
• Fortresses of Redemption now disband when Space Marines lose their city so that remaining players in the team do not gain Fortress of Redemption bonuses.
• Heroes are now produced with higher experience later in the game, gaining 1 full level every 20 turns after turn 20.
• Items on dying heroes are now lost instead of being returned to the player.
• Doubled the morale impact of deaths. It now equals the experience value of the unit dying.
• Doubled the morale impact of deaths. It now equals the experience value of the unit dying.
• Morale no longer regenerates if the unit has taken damage this turn.
• Merged Instinctive Behaviour into a single trait that reduces morale each turn. The multiple types of maluses did not make clear sense in their exclusive assignment to particular units and caused unnecessary friction when moving to the front lines with rally points.
• Override Instinctive Behaviuor influence cost now scales with the unit strength (Termagants = 3, Carnifex = 12).
• Increased Synapse Archevores influence cost reduction from -33% to -50%.
• Adjusted blast, template and beam affected members and accuracy.
• Defensive Protocols, Aura of Discipline and "Bring it Down!" no longer works on Fortifications, Gargantuan Creatures, Monstrous Creatures and Vehicles.
• Increased "Gunners, Kill on Sight!" damage from +10...30% to +20...60%.
