New Evochron Mercenary

The Evochron Mercenary Website features downloads of a new version 2.308 update for this space exploration and combat game. Available as a free trial as well as an update for registered users, the new version offers the following enhancements:

  • Solar array mesh structure updated.AI system updated to direct computer controlled ships to properly avoid solar arrays.
  • New passive/safety target MFD mode added to turn off ship specific targeting completely on the display.
  • Matching material types in other cargo slots would sometimes be transferred in a ship-to-ship trade when the unit count was different, now fixed.
  • Delivery contract waypoint system updated to prevent placement near sector border which could result in contract failure as player approached capital ship.
  • AI physics and control systems updated to better account for relative frame weight, thruster power, and maneuvering parameters.
  • Racing AI velocity and thruster skill reduced to make passing second IMG quest contract easier.
  • Atmosphere system updated to provide a thinner look with less ambient/horizon brightness.
  • Atmosphere haze effect updated to provide a smoother transition from space to surface.
  • Ship formation system updated to manage throttle better to reduce shield collisions.
  • Altimeter would occasionally jump at various points above terrain, now fixed.
  • Server status check will now return to multiplayer menu if connection fails.
  • Capital ships now hold their position at waypoint for delivery contracts.
  • Leech EMP missiles now work correctly when used on terrain walkers.
  • Flak effects added for AI ships flying close to hostile capital ships.
  • Capital ship anti-shield torpedoes now inflict more damage.
  • Flyby sound effect proximity activation range reduced.
  • Mod options added for certain atmosphere effects.
  • Option to specify a unique framerate cap added.
  • Several minor bug fixes.
