General Changes
  • We've updated the Warborn racial quest so it more appropriately guides players to the quest "Greasing the Wheel" which is a requirement to continue with the racial quest line.

Bug Fixes
  • The Warehouse Manager in Nuimari is no longer hostile to player nations. We explained to him that business would be better if he changed his mind. He was into it.
  • We've unstuck the lid of the Random Migration Talisman Box so you can open it again.
  • The folio is now appropriately updated to inform you that you're making a Red Rudolph Farm Freighter in addition to the normal Red Farm Freighter.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause items to be missing from the repurchasing list.
  • We've adjusted the cuteness on the Violet Bloomfang so it shouldn't cheat so much. (Added additional code to help reduce the times you get Suspicious Activity when traveling quickly with the Violet Bloomfang.)
  • Fixed an issue where long hair could clip through hoodie hoods.
  • Realigned the world map and Aegis Island map so they line up.
  • Fixed a graphical issue on the leg of the hoodies.
  • The Car Display Stand can now handle the Rampage series. There is a known issue where the Rampage S200 Lite cannot be displayed, but it's being addressed.
