    Post Trove Livestream Notes 13/04/2018

    Welcome to the latest live stream notes thread!

    This week the team had a bit of pinata fun bouncing around a few club worlds and our usual Q&A segmented hosted by James.

    PS4 clarification:
    We know its been rough, a variety of issues contributed to that. Some cases that the issues only appeared in the live environment. The issues have been looked at, processes have been put in place, and a compensation care package has been made.

    Additional items issue:
    Due to the nature of the issue, a difficult choice was picked. The decision was made to get the server quickly and aired on the aside of being more generous to players. We understand its not ideal but we made the choice to get the servers back up as soon as possible. Many apologies.

    Song of Petallura event:
    Upcoming spring event to the game to celebrate the season.
    You'll be able to get yourself a cute baby chick ally, usher in spring on trove.

    For more information on the care package for PS4 users, see below:

    Questions and Answers Session:

    What is the status update of Urmhalit the Unforgiving?
    Still in hiding, got plans for him but no news yet.

    When will invites fro PS4 be working again?
    Will be fixed in the very next hotfix, expect it not too long away.

    When can we expect more Vanguardian costumes?
    Not in the very short term, but its on our list as theyve been asked about a lot.

    Now that heroes is out, whats next on the agenda?
    We gave a bit of a hint last livestream, we've got an interstellar issue were digging into right now.

    When can expect to see the moonsilver costume for Vanguardian
    Think it's in the next big update

    Will you reconsider removing items from the chaos crafter? See 2nd Post
    We saw the feedback and were discussing it, no promises though. We take a lot into account with the feedback, doesn't mean we always change things. We starting talking about it this morning so i promise it's being discussed.

    Can you make outposts indestructible to prevent griefing and trolling?
    Its not a simple fix but we will look into it and monitor how often the trolling occurs.

    Can you adjust the energy cost on the Vanguardians M2 in ranged mode?
    Feedback has been passed on to the design team.

    Can we expect the Double Dragon pack to be available via credits soon?

    Unlikely to be converted to credits, don't want to say never but not all packs will change over to credits. Its unlikely this one will.

    Prior to the removal of the blocks contests, there were 2 contests per week, since the removal there's some weeks that only have 1.
    This is intentional.

    Any plans to include costume sales or Luxion to the welcome screen.
    Luxion is being added to the screen soon.

    Are there plans to implement new decorations ad styles anytime soon? not including those for new biomes weapon types or costumes?
    There will be some new and unexpected decor in the next expansion as well as a new type of decor block.

    Is there ever going to be a Neon styled boat?
    Its possible, were always on the look out for cool mods people make.

    Can you please remove plasmium drops from lesser neon caches as the caches are rare enough?
    Sadly no, plasmium feeds into the entire economy so it can be sued to craft other rarer materials.

    You have cash only packs for "presence in the 3rd party markets" but have you ever considered after a time period rotating the packs to credit values?
    Its a good suggestion, we will definitely consider that.

    Will you bring back sales for classes?
    Not currently scheduled, but we have just had a recent discussion about more costume related sales and perhaps bring back something similar to the costume mystery boxes

    When is the name reclaim gonna start freeing up names?
    No date for that, apologies for it not happening yet, it hasn't been at the top of the list but it hasnt been forgotten. As soon as we have news, we will let you know.

    Can you increase the mastery of the newer chaos core costumes to 75 to bring them in line with their flux costs?
    We'll have our designer doing reviews on this to put at correct values.

    When will a cinnabar tome be added?

    Were talking internally at the moment about a tome for cinnabar and faerie dust. They are coming and scheduled.

    Do you guys have any plans of making the game more player-interactive? For example, chairs that actually allow you to sit on them, or doors that open and close?
    Great question, no plans at the moment, we like the idea though.

    Can we create a superhero running moment similar to the windtunnel wings so that when you mount up, you just run really fast?
    Its a cool idea, we are working on a few new types of mounts, scheduled to come out over a period of time.

    Any specifics on when the lag issues are going to be addressed, preferably with some concrete plans instead of the usual platitudes we get?

    Cant give concrete plans as its not just a simple problem. As much as i wish we could say, weve added the fix lag button. Honestly, we have engineers that are implementing improvements and everything is about making improvements towards the larger goal is reducing lag. We promise we are working towards that to improve making the experience better.

    Can someone go through and look at all the 30 swarm cursed skull events?
    It has been added to the bug tracking software.


    That ends this weeks livestream, hope all are well and see you all again, enjoy your gaming

    Post stream update:
    With regards to the chaos crafter items, Darkmoon has followed up for us all and here is the result.

    The recipes for the 20 collectables that are being retired from Chaos Chests will remain on the Chaos Core Crafter for now. They will have a separate category (Legacy Collectables) to distinguish them as items that no longer drop from Chaos Chests themselves. I say "for now" because as the Chaos Core Crafter fills up, we will need to find a new home for these recipes to prevent performance issues, but that is a decision for another time. For now, they will remain where they are.

    Thank you for the feedback. You all rock.
    Big thankyou to Julia for finding out

    So wanting servers to go up reduced the "more generous" part, then given the game breaking glitch where some got duplicates of their things and not doing anything to those and say that you wanted to get the servers up instead of fixing the issue to begin with?

    When people are sitting on hundreds and thousands of pouches and golden eggs and you say that you won't do anything about it?
    Really?

    Be generous and have everyone who spent money on get those duplication's or whoever got them roll them back to where they don't have it.

    Since none was actually said on this issue I am voicing my opinion on here and there is so much in the PS4 threads too and no answer by Fasti or Trion about what will happen to those who received those duplicated items/credits.

    I REALLY hope they keep with the decision to keep old CC loot in the crafter under its own tab. Removing them puts up another wall for new players.

    that is disgusting.. if its going to stay in lesser neon caches the reward needs to be at minimum increased 10x getting the same ammount or less from a lesser cache feels extremely unrewarding for a time gated box that is rng on if you can even get one during the whole day depending on when you get on.

    as always thanks for the notes

    "A rollback would have wiped all game progress and any purchases made during that period without refunding PS4 players for what they spent so the risk of much, much worse damage was there. We're definitely frustrated by the options we had to go with and picked the best of bad options."

    Taken from the stream 44:37, thought this extra bit might help regarding your post.
