Patch 2.27Patched on Mon 2011-12-12
First Night has returned to the wasteland!
It’s that time of year again! the settlers have gathered and are working to bring the first Night Celebrations back to the wasteland, but it’s not going to be easy. Shiva’s Blessed are attacking, retailers are cheap and monsters are everywhere. If anyone is going to do any celebrating, they’re going to need the players help!
Questors can be found in:
Embry Crossroads, Watchtower, Barret Manor, Dieseltown and Los Alamos.
Introducing Faction Territory Control
Factions now have a new way to display their dominance in the new open-world PvP Territory Control system. When it comes to Faction Territory Control, there’s no such thing as alliances. It’s an all-out six-way showdown to see who’s on top.
The new area, just up the road North of Blaine, consists of 13 flag-based control points. These control points work like the ones used in the Faction Control Points system. Seven of those flags exist inside of upgradeable “keeps” that Factions can take and maintain control over. The keeps come with various perks, including access to the new Death Toll Gear. Additionally, holding any of the 13 control points will allow players of that faction to place Harvesters in the surrounding area.
Getting to Territory Control
Map Objective Icons
Keep Defense Missions
Each keep has defense missions that players of the controlling Faction can take to earn Death Toll while defending their turf.
Faction Emblem Items
Fixed a bug with the Faction Emblem items that allowed them to be used multiple times without triggering the cooldown.
Embry Crossroads has been completely reworked with new assets. The original layout was preserved as much as possible, as was NPC and facility placement. Terrain in the surrounding areas was also reworked. Texture load, batch count and poly count were all lowered, which should lead to better frame rate.
Simple node events have been added to the game. These events spawn harvest nodes in random areas. These events show up on the world map.
Objective Icons have been added to the world map for Fast Travel terminals, Progress Towns, Town Events, and non-timed Conflict Towns.
Questors now say you are in the wrong faction if your highest faction is wrong for a mission. They used to say your HighFaction attribute was too high or too low.
