Mood Requiem 2.x for Entrenchment Release Notes

Requiem Developer


(major release)

  • Fixed a problem with Interdictors not moving reliably (they were channeling their interdiction instead of passively doing it)
  • Moved the Designate Target ability from Interdictors to Enforcers (Interdictors had 4 abilities already!)
  • Removed Repair ability from Enforcers, increased their cost and normalized their build times. They are a great DPS ship but can be defeated if you don't keep your eye on them
  • Refined the Enforcer mesh... now it fires far more impressively
  • Fixed all hardpoints for weapons and missles on all ship meshes, no more missing Weapon point popups during debugs
  • Swapped the roles of the Nebulon B2 and Lancer to be more in tune with the Star Wars EU (thanks Warmaster!)
  • Added more impressive exhaust systems to the Galofree, Lancer and Victory-class ISDs, and corrected an off-mesh prob with Corvettes
  • Added real ship icons instead of the Tech defaults (thanks to Sonar, Grundel, EvilJedi and the SOGE modders for this)
  • Removed the old Tech pictures (now there is no ship pretty pictures but who needs em!)
  • Changed the default music theme to be Vasari rather than Tech (a more sinister, Imperial-like soundtrack)
  • Changed the name of Imperial to Empire


(minor patch)

  • SabotageAntimatter for FrigateLight now works when researched
  • ClusterWarHeads for Nebulon B frigates now works when researched
  • The Empire now gets a frigate factory and 2 constructors like every other race. Quick start also worksl.
  • Repair Bays were not working - now they do!

  • Dreadnaughts are now replaced by Loronar strike cruiser
  • TIE Fighters and bombers replace tech fighters/bombers
  • Fixed a persistant bug with repair platforms and turrents that wouldn't rotate


(minor patch)

  • Corrected String file to correctly refer to Corellion Scouts, not Corvettes for Timed Explosives
  • Fixed a problem with Designate Target on Enforcers not working
  • Loaded in the Imperial March ogg file from Warmaster!

  • Rename Novalith to Galaxy Gun and fixed research tree
  • Fixed descriptions to Turbolaser upgrades (Range, Rate of Fire, Photon Bolt, Missles)
  • Fixed a bug with Dreadnaught shields, tripled it's cost/firepower, increased shields by 200% only though. Dreadnaught fires twices as fast but reduced damage (still triple all stats inc. cost)
  • Replaced Victory class ISD IIc carrier Embargo ability with Colonize
  • Gave full ISD a minimum of one fighter/bomber squadron. Now all VISD/ISD gain squadrons at different rates, with the VISD-IIc having the highest increase rate per level

  • Removed Autocannon upgrade research
  • Expanded laser research tree to max out at 30% damage, drawn across 4 research hops and 5 tiers of research
