Patch Notes Update Elite Dangerous: Horizons update 2.01.02

Brett C

Frontier
Greetings commanders, we have an update on the way this morning for PC and Mac platforms.

The galactic servers will go offline at 10AM UK time and we expect for up to two hours of maintenance.

Below are the changes for this update.




Stability Fixes
- Prevent crash on encountering a replicated cash-for-cargo trader
- Fix server crash on non-turn platforms
- Fix for VR crash entering a location
- Guard against player recreation when transferring location for exploration databases


General Tweaks & Fixes
- Fixed commander name on Xbox when receiving an inbox message for a newly granted system permit
- Fix rank up notification inbox messages being incorrectly hidden
- Fix ammo being incorrectly removed from modules that have had their ammo capacity increased by an Engineer
- When resurrecting at a station controlled by a hostile faction, automatically adjust the reputation up to disliked to avoid unnecessary peril
- Added latest batch of translations
- Various text fixes


NPCs
- Fix NPCs ending up with overpowered hybrid weapons
- Stop NPCs deciding to attack if they only attack opposing powers and the player and AI powers are aligned to the same superpower
- Slight rebalance of the ambient AI rank chances, should see slightly less of the top end and more of the low/mid range
- Smooth out the mission-spawned USS AI levels so that high ranks are rarer and only elite missions hit the top end ai (though deadly can get close)


Engineers
- Un-filter blueprints when entering the blueprints selection panel


Missions
- Correct Microresource contract panel is now being used in any panel at a mission's hand in stage(s). This should now indicate why a mission cannot be handed in if the player's microresource inventory is full
- Using a Discovery Scanner in Planetary Rescue or Salvage missions should now give an inbox message
- Microresouce Contract Elements now included on relevant panels
- Fix target spawn times and allow new destination delivery missions to work
- Fix landable planet issue with dynamic scan rescue


Powerplay
- Fix incorrect thresholds displayed for Fortify and Undermine actions
- Fix being unable to deliver Powerplay commodities in a handful of starsystems, including Sol
- Fix Zachary Hudson's actions when being opposed by other Federal powers
- Fix supporters of Independent powers being unable to earn merits from conflict zones
- Fix a bug in the Powerplay turn processor so it once again gives the correct result for preparations

Server
- Fix the background sim’s daily influence caps behaving incorrectly with large negative influence change
- Enable shipyards at many Planet Ports

Hi Brett, this bit:

- Slight rebalance of the ambient AI rank chances, should see slightly less of the top end and more of the low/mid range

Is this accross the board irrespective of the system security level? Or has this been tied to security level? I.e. more high rank AI attacks in low security and anarchy comparatively with less high rank AI attacks in high security etc.

Thanks Brett, That all sounds good. Hopefully a few commanders in hiding will be able to come out and play again :)
(I'm keeping my A8 shield though)

Thanks for the update...

( just a little request: considering I am not at work, could you speed up the operation? :D )
 
Whilst I appreciate the update and associated good work, why do updates always seem to hit Australia either on a Friday night or weekend? I can't really play during the weekdays and had just sat down on a Friday night looking to play for 3-4 hours and bang, in came the Greetings CMDRs message.... very frustrating.
