    Resolved an issue that was preventing the Summer Event Tracker from appearing.

    This fix is good & welcomed, it is almost like a mini-calendar.

    Resolved an issue that could cause the Rainbow Tribble's buff to grant less critical chance than intended.

    A good fix for any potential buyers & those that already bought, I'll have to look-up the critter's stats.

    Resolved an issue that was causing the horizon on Risa to appear distorted.

    I'm a bit disappointed about this fix, I had thought Cryptic was doing something creative & there might be a backstory incoming for us all to enjoy plus it looks/looked cool.

    WOW! No fix for the Race and Biathlon cheaters! I sure hope that is a ninja fix that just wasn't mentioned.

    Edit: I somehow missed the tabs on the side of the windows for the bird and monkey turn ins. :P Not all of the bird forms show up after going through all of the tabs.

    I like the radiating sun as well. It made it look like the sun was radiating heat, keeping Risa nice and warm for us.

    So I take it that Flying High no longer giving Favors was intentional then as there is no mention in the patch notes.

    Oh, I see said the blind who saw everything that just happened and was quick to tell the deaf man who listened hearing every detail..

    I was a bit confused with these new tribbles, since i bought 5 to test out using one and giving 1 to each of my Boff's and my CritH% was somehow lower than it was before trying them.. I'll have to try them again since they are working now? or working after the down time 8 hours from this post?

    Where is the fix for access to purchasing the Fleet T6 Risian corvette for those who recently bought it from Mudd?

    Working after the downtime. Whenever there is a "patch notes" thread like this, the patch is applied during the downtime announced in the originating post... which are virtually always in the morning (US time) of a weekday, and generally (though not always) either a Thursday or, less commonly, Tuesday.

    Usually the post comes out about 12-16 hours in advance.

    Yeah I had figured that was the case and not something minor that could addressed(hotfixed) while the servers were still live..

    I see you got Q to stop the distortions...and from messing with the populace's time perception. It is agreeable that we will be able to perceive the timers again. It is also agreeable that the Q will remove the ether perturbations.

    It would seem it is indeed intentional.

    I've enjoyed every single Risian Summer event up until this one. I just cannot get into it at all this year. Granted the bugs have played a hand in it. And while Flying High no longer awarding Favors is not a major blow over all, it is another issue that actively discourages me from spending time on Risa.

    Some new activities would have been nice. Being able to start ANY of the activities, aside from races, when the player wants would have been great. Simply put the events like dancing or the Horgahn Hunt on a timer so that players can't abuse it. Instead I have to set specific times aside if I want to participate in those activities, time I no longer have.

    I can play for 20-30 minutes a day and not at the same time every day. With the rigid event schedule on Risa it means I likely will never be on at the same time as the events I want to run will be up. So what's the point in me doing ANYTHING on Risa aside from the daily for the ship and logging out?

    I do appreciate Cryptic continuing to give us new FREE ships several times a year and for trying to keep these types of events fun. I just feel there is more that can be done so that it doesn't seem so limiting.

    Put the individual single player events on a timer, say 60 minutes. This means the Artifact Hunt, Horgahn Hunt, Dance Party and perhaps even the Sand Castles. When the player competes the task they get the bonus favors the events offer and then can't run it again for the bonus for an hour. Put the Favors back into Flying High as this is a nice little filler event to run.

    Would these types of changes be perfect? Perhaps not, but letting players choose when they want to run an event seems much more inviting.

    They weren't removed. Just properly scaled to line up with the Risian ship. Apparently they were supposed to be attached to the fins, but scaling issues made it so the ship was properly scaled for the map, but the distortions were full size.

    Cryptic likes to add stealth nerfs like that when taking away an option for players imo. Maybe the 20 extra lohlunats was breaking the STO economy lol

    So once again you failed to repair the launcher itself so I could actually get into the game?

    I'm glad the Summer Event schedule was worked on, it kicked in after the patch.

    But it acted up again.

    Last time it sprung up when I used the Patrol system. Up to the time I used it, the schedule was working. When I returned it was gone.

    This time around I logged back on to work on the L'nuts and the schedule showed there was 9 minutes left to the Dance Competition. I decided that wasn't enough time to finish it, so I worked on Admiralty UI. When I looked at the schedule again, it had stopped working.

    On PC: Opening the Mission Journal will sometimes cause the timer to disappear. However, if it disappears, keep opening the Esc menu until it reappears.

    The Risa Tracker issue is fixed on all platforms - sort of. We've discovered that you may need to take some extra steps.

    On Console: If the tracker disappears, hold "A" to bring up the interact menu. This should bring the timer back until we have a better fix.

    Thanks for the info, I sent the one concerning console to those who are in that predicament.

    Accolades give you points but you can't spend them on anything. It is another way to keep you busy in-game to pad metrics. ;)

    Also, due to fiats by the California Governor, software companies had to fix no more than two things a week. :)

    When the game is realistic drawn, the game process is more interesting! All updates will have a positive impact on the game. Thank!
