    Beyond 3.0 Beta 3 Patch Notes

    Hi everyone,

    The beta galaxy servers are currently down in order for us to update to Beta 3. As mentioned in an earlier post, this update will be as close to the 3.0 release build as possible.

    Once again, thank you for jumping in and testing during this beta period... your feedback has once again been absolutely invaluable.

    The beta should be live again shortly, this should not affect the main game.

    See the patch notes for Beta 3 below:


    Art


    • Fixed nebulae being extremely bright
    • Fixed the joystick move animation for the female pilot model, as it was reversed



    Audio


    • Fixed flight controllers saying a third character if a player switches to a call sign with less than 3 characters
    • Fixed the ‘Bounty Incurred’ audio line playing whenever a fine is received
    • Fixed some missing audio from holographic billboards
    • Fixed audio issues with the vessel voice after returning to your ship from an SRV when landing at some sites
    • Fixed cockpit freezing and cracking SFX persisting after returning to the game from the menu



    Controls


    • Fixed throttle automatically setting to zero when exiting a hyperspace jump
    • Fixed an issue that limited the amount of input devices on PC to four



    Crime


    • Removed bounty/fine cost multiplier at Interstellar Factors based on notoriety
    • No longer able to pay off fines/bounties at Interstellar Factors if you have a notoriety above 0
    • Consolidated lawless security state in to anarchy security state
    • Anarchy states now show anarchy security level
    • Interstellar factors are now available at all markets controlled by factions with Anarchy governments, regardless of star system security level


    • ATR response is now governed by system security level and crimes committed
    • Once ATR has been summoned, subsequent crimes result in a faster response
    • Notoriety now updates periodically during gameplay (reducing by 1 unit per hour of gameplay)
    • Switched on contacts at all Engineer bases to allow fines to be paid, but still only Broo Tarquin, The Sarge, Ram Tah, Colonel Bris Dekker, Lori Jameson, Juri Ishmaak, Tod 'The Blaster' McQuinn advance their progression from redeeming vouchers at their bases



    Engineers


    • Additional Engineer Blueprint Changes



    Power Distributor:

    Hallelujah!

    Wow thanks, this reads very nicely,
    looking forward to test the crime and atr changes.

    Any date for the Krait though?

    This:
    "Interstellar factors are now available at all markets controlled by factions with Anarchy governments, regardless of star system security level"

    Could become an issue though, as anarchy factions are quickly toppled.

    Is there any chance we see the ability to "seed" a black market by ourselves,
    so we can further the anarchy faction's influence and impact dictatorships,
    by making it a temporal facility, that gets locked after some time not having goods flowing in?

    No, with regard to Plasma Accelerator.

    Alliance Chieftain
    Tweaked flight model to improve lateral and vertical thrust
    Great. But presumably this refers to the power of the thrusters and it still drifts like mad? Will be testing as soon as the beta is up.

    Lakon Type 7
    Buffed the type 7 to improve its jump range
    A nice surprise!

    Ok, I actually like these changes to C&P, because it won't allow murderers just throw money at their notoriety. That was one major issue which now seems to be addressed.
