In this thread, we will share some short news and information from the developers' office so you know what is going on.
May 15th 2019,
We have been working on fixes for ~20 bugs.
An update containing these fixes will be uploaded as soon as the internal testing phase is finished, probably within this week.
Some issues that have been tackled:
Technology points not generated
Mostly in combination with the plus account, tech point generation stopped so some Admirals did not receive any more TPs.
We handled this manually for the affected players and will upload a patch to fix the issue.
Ranking, wrong display of ships
In the player ranking, sometimes the number of ships owned by a player is displayed incorrectly.
We found the reason for this, the ranking will show the correct total of ships for players after the update.
Pearl shop and sandbox tutorial
It was possible to enter the pearl shop even if a player was still in the sandbox tutorial (starting sequence before sailing to the Caribbean).
In order to prevent pearls getting lost, the pearl shop will only be available after the sandbox tutorial has ended.
Stuck on the 'open water' preloading screen
In some cases (refreshing the game after a long time or using a bookmark that was set after the login or also some links in emails) players were stuck on the 'open water' screen and could not proceed to the game from there. Instead, you will then be redirected to the homepage where you can log back in correctly.
Governor's thread in the tavern
Some governors were unable to use the dedicated thread in their tavern.
After the update, governors can use this thread for their announcements without issues.
We will announce the update shortly before the downtime on Discord and also in the game itself. A short list of relevant changes will be published in the patch notes section afterwards.
