Today's 1.2.7 update for the Starhawk Public BETA was deployed during the regularly scheduled server maintenance today, February 3 at 2pm Central time and included the following changes:
- Added Build & Battle console to Shield Generator.
- Added Build & Battle console to Outpost.
- Fixed broken ladders on pre-placed Launch-Pad in Orbital Space.
- Fixed "hole" in the Scourge (Acid Sea) map where players could get stuck.
Build & Battle Consoles:
As many of you know, each Build & Battle structure has a command console attached to it. Interacting with these consoles by pressing and holding provide players with additional actions. Stuff like constructing new vehicles, upgrades, reclaiming, etc. Prior to the 1.2.7 Update, the Shield Generator and Outpost did *NOT* have consoles -- but now they do so you can reclaim them from the battlefield!
Getting Stuck on a Ladder:
In the 1.2.6 Update we added some pre-placed structures to help jump-start the action a bit sooner. We are still evaluating this change and discussing if any further action needs to take place. However, due to a bug that was causing players to get stuck on one of the pre-placed Launch-Pad ladders, we felt we needed to deploy a fix right away.
Hole in Scourge Map:
Thanks to Heavy7666 on Twitter, we were able to fix a layout "hole" on the planet of Scourge where players could get stuck. So it's fixed now and thanks again to Heavy7666 for bringing it to our attention!
