Update Changelog 2018-Jan-16

On Tuesday,  January 16th, Tau Station gets its first update. Thanks to all Closed Alpha testers for your input. From now on, a changelog will always provide a short summary of the improvements, fixes, and new content/features implemented with each new version. Have a look at this very first changelog to see which changes and improvements have made it into the game already.

This is a short overview of the changes (new features, improvements or fixes) in the new version. In case a couple of tasks have been performed on one feature, you find those summarized in one topic to make it as comfy for you as possible.

Career

  • Stats – Hi or low stats now impact career task success/failure
  • Tasks – Career tasks have been reworked to match stats needed for career
  • Career XP – Successful career task attempts now award less career XP (people were getting promoted faster than we expected)
  • Regular XP – Successful career task attempts now award more regular XP
  • Staying alive – Fixed a bug where a failed career action could cause you to die and respawn into a clone
