Update 25.0

Custom UI
  • Prove your Prodman respect with new Corpus UI Theme, Background, and Sound under Options > Interface > UI Customization!

Update 24.6

Creator Mode Setting Addition

We have added a new Option called "Creator Mode"! This exists to help players and Content Creators with a simple principle: no distractions, no spoilers. When this is toggled on:

  • Fortuna Citizens won't reveal their secret.
  • The Lotus will no longer be as purple.
  • Operator transmissions will be voice only.
  • Email on login screen will be all ********** like the password
  • On-orbiter transmissions and in-mission bumpers for Invasions / Alerts will not appear.
Changes
  • Changed High graphics setting to set Anisotropic Filtering to 16x instead of 8x. Added a faster 2x Anisotropic Filtering setting and removed the 16x option to save people from themselves.
  • Updated Enable Hint Transmissions in the Audio Options menu. This setting will stop a lot of the more common and repetitive Transmissions from playing.

Hotfix 24.5.4

  • Common Nora Night Transmissions can now be disabled with 'enable hint transmissions' in the Audio Options menu.

Hotfix 24.5.3

  • Increased volume of Chat notification sounds.

Hotfix 24.4.2

Melee Phase 1: 'Flow' Changes
  • Manual blocking/parry has been added when players wield only a Melee weapon in a mission (i.e NO Secondary or Primary equipped). This is possible because in this specific state, the keybindings are free to allow this manual blocking. We do not plan on adding it to any other state yet. The default keybind for this is RMB/Right Mouse Button (LT for controller), as it was in the past.
Controller Changes & Fixes
  • Melee Channeling can no longer be rebound on Controller due to it completely breaking Melee 2.99997 changes. We apologize for the discomfort this may cause for those who have built their controllers comfortably around a different binding. You can't make an omelette without cracking some eggs!

Update 24.4

  • HUD Damage Numbers and Affinity Numbers can now be separately toggled in the Interface Settings!
  • Trigger Press Sensitivity: Adjusts the pressure required to fire/aim

Update 22.20

  • Starchat music will now be affected by the Music slider and not the SFX slider
  • Added a ‘Show Ability Banner on Cast’ toggle to the Interface Options menu! This is off by default on PC. Console players already have these banners appear automatically, but they will have the option to turn them off once this change goes live on Xbox One and PS4! https://gfycat.com/gifs/detail/coarseflowerybarb

  • Added a new experimental graphics quality option for Temporal Anti-Aliasing. This can be enabled in the options menu.
