EV Nova 1.0.2 Coming Soon
6:00 AM | Daniel Krechmer | Comment on this story

Ambrosia Software and ATMOS, in their pursuit of perfection, have started posting the changes which will be taking place in the latest update to Escape Velocity: Nova.

Here's just a portion of the latest updates:

Fixed a bug with the availability of the third Vell-os misn
Fixed a problem with the availability of the second Auroran misn after the player refuses the first one and starts another storyline
Some Polaris ship variants that are supposed to have fast-jump capabilities now have 1 of the fast-jump outfit in the ship resource (as opposed to 0)
The second Vell-os mission now sets ncb 4444 upon refusing rather than acceptance
The third Vell-os mission is no longer available if ncb 4444 is set
FPC's do slightly less energy damage
FPC's use up slightly more mass
Blasters use up slightly less mass
Destroy Bureau Cell Mission (id 877) is now set to be available from any inhabited spob as opposed to any Fed spob
Missions that set b511 (the storyline restricting bit) now set upon accepting rather than upon success to stop players getting ahold of multiple storylines
Rebel variation ships no longer have 'fire whilst cloaked' weapons
Cloaking Device is now available when it says it is
Misn 173 now requires ncb 297 to be set so that the player can no longer talk to Master Arando before meeting him
The Wild Geese string in which Michaleen doesn't die straight up, doesn't talk about the Rovers being a 'man down' anymore
EV: Nova 1.0.1, currently being ported to the Windows operating system, is for OS 8.1 and higher, as well as OS X . It is also available for download at
