Signups for Round 43 - Shadows of History are now open here.
Ticks start at 20:00 GMT on Friday, 19th August.
The following is a summary of all the changes for this round:
-Salvage has been changed to take stolen ships into consideration when capping received salvage, and to allow for salvage to make up to 1% beyond the original fleet value to be gained even at the top ranks.
-Ships can now be salvaged with immediate effect for 50% of their construction costs. This includes both constructed ships and stolen ships. This action is irreversable.
-Wave Amplifiers now give a 0.3% discount on scan cost for every amplifier constructed after your first amplifier (was 0.1%).
-The alliance log page now shows who started, accepted and cancelled both merges and NAPs. It also logs who deleted any alliance defence calls.
-Scanners with member access can see who has requested a scan and link to their member info page.
-The alliance members page now has a numbering system down the left hand side
-The Galaxy Status page now includes a status field, bcalc field, notes field, class tickboxes and a link to any recent scans done on the attacker by yourself / your alliance. This information is shown and is modifiable by all trusted members of your galaxy. This does mean a change to the galaxy status page layout.
-When forming or breaking a NAP, a counter shows how many ticks left of the 48 tick wait period before you can break the NAP / create a new NAP.
-Galaxy banners can now be set as blank and will be automatically set as the default galaxy picture.
Beta testing is still occurring on our beta server.
Ship Stats are provisionally final; any changes will be communicated immediately.
