February 13, 2013[edit]

Features

New Premium Crew: Venus!

  • Obtain love, power and desire with an all new Premium Crew: Venus!
  • As one might discern from her name and alluring aspect, Venus was built as a pleasure bot. However, during her instruction in the nature of human interaction, she became curious about the concept of love. Hence she investigated the matter via TALOS’ extensive information archives. *As a result of her research, Venus decided that meaningless coupling certainly wasn’t the way to achieve true love. So, following a heated argument with — and resigned sighs from — the engineers who built her, she became a romance bot instead. Her new directive: to travel human space and help people find fulfilling relationships.
  • Get the first ever crew in Suns to have the same synergy as Anita, Svana, Gera Marl and Mr. Falyx — Venus’ Attack and Defense stats increase +5 for each active crew in the ship, regardless of their race, roles or attributes! So in a 40 crew slot ship, she will synergize with all 39 crew and even herself in the 40th slot.
  • Venus has a chance to summon every non-unique crew member in the game — from free, limited offers to expedition crew. Even non-unique crew dropped exclusively from World Raids are also summoned.
  • Venus’ attack and defense increases +2 for each different crew member owned, both unique and non-unique.
  • Venus is race category Robot, with her role and attribute categorized as Any. For those interested, Anita will synergize with Venus due to her being a Robot.
  • She can be purchased for 150 Suns, and will be available for this Limited Offer cycle (e.g.: two weeks).


Zone 17 – Playing With Fire (Part 1)

  • Play through the ever expanding adventures of Suns in an all new mini-zone!
  • Things heat up as a new character with a mysterious, pyrokinetic power makes an appearance! Meanwhile, an ominous organization continues with their own dark agenda as the Blue Wyrm Watches. And what will happen with the Captain? Find out today in an all new Zone 17!
  • Zone 17 can be accessed after beating the second area of Zone 16 on normal.
  • Zone 17 is a mini-zone, with 4 missions and 1 boss.
  • There are no item requirements for this zone.
  • The boss of this zone is category epic, organic humanoid, human and male.
  • Please note that the 3 item pieces needed for other treasure hunts (Blue Dwarf Gloves, Vengeful Shadow Gloves and Thugby All-Star Brainbucket) are intended for the NM loot table, but are at a low drop rate; this is to give players another avenue to obtain these items should Suns be added into another server.
  • The next zone will be scheduled for next month, as we focus on the exciting treasure hunt coming live next week!


Limited Offers

  • Be romantic and powerful as the Love set continues with all new pieces on sale!

  • Percentages will not show on an item’s tooltip in your inventory/ship pages.
  • The drop chance of items increase from left to right, and from top tier to bottom tier (so the top left items would have the lowest chance, while the bottom right items would have the highest).

    • New Item Pack: 1.4%, 1.4%, 1.4%, 1.45%, 1.45%, 1.45% and 1.45%

  • The Mystery Pack table has been updated with several different items; moving forward, we will be updating the Mystery and Relic Packs under a different schedule, rather than simultaneously with a release of New Item Expeditions.
  • The direct GS rewards from the Mystery Pack table have been replaced with two grabbags.
  • Mysterious Mystery: Tier 2 grabbag at a 2.8% chance which will award players with 50 GS when opened

New Alliance Boss 1: Rabid Reindeer "Look, it's not our fault! We were trying to save the planet! Just because we have a few tens of thousands, it doesn't mean we can waste them... We wanted people to go natural. So we bred reindeer to pull our sleighs -- no need for nasty mechanized vehicles messing up the ground or sky. We even did some organic cross-breeding, to make their noses glow. Glowing noses are nature's headlights! But... Well, one went crazy and killed a bunch of people. We'd stop it, but we're ultra-conservationists. We even preserve the bacteria by not washing. Could you, you know, do something? Maybe take it to a nice farm where it can live out its days?" -- A distress broadcast from Planets First, an eco-activist group. This is a small raid but with 50 slots. There is no cooldown for this raid. It's classified as alien beast and alliance.


New Alliance Boss 2: SANTA's Workshop SANTA, aka Save Aliens by Nuking Their Asses, are up to their seasonal shenanigans once again. This time they're planning to carry out a series of devastating attacks on non-Christmas-celebrating species, until those aliens learn to appreciate the holiday spirit and uphold the yuletide. But one of SANTA's former members has blown the whistle and revealed the location of their secret workshop, paving the way for a tactical festive strike. This is a medium raid with 50 slots. There is no cooldown for this raid. It's classified as mechanized and alliance.


New Alliance Armor: Winter Wolf Set You can upgrade the Psi-Hound Armor set using the Winter Wolf components from the 2 new alliance raids. The Grey and Blue Winter Wolf Statues are from the SANTA's Workshop alliance raid. The Brown and Green Winter Wolf Statues are from the Rabid Reindeer alliance raid.

  • Nicholas "Santa" Klaus loved Christmas. He loved decorating trees, wrapping presents, drinking eggnog, and eating mince pies. Above all else, he loved playing Santa at his local mall, bringing smiles of delight to thousands of young faces. But that was before Kill-Tech purchased ad time on children's programming across human space, and announced that Father Christmas wasn't real -- because their marketing department had discovered a link between ruined childhoods and the buying of large amounts of devastating weaponry later in life.

Features Anniversary World Raid #2: Cerebral Destroyer

  • Arms manufacturers are always keen to develop the latest innovative weaponry -- products which might earn them a bigger chunk of the interstellar slaughter market and let them rake in the credits. But these days it takes a lot to make the galaxy sit up and take notice. If an up-and-coming company wants to grab headlines and play with the big boys like Terminus and Kill-Tech, they have to bring out something impressive. Something big. Something crazy... Like a giant, genetically engineered brain with psychic powers, mounted on a ship for use in space combat. At least that's what one group of boffins came up with. However, the problem with crazy experiments is that they often have equally crazy consequences. In this case, the brain decided to assume control of the ship, blast the crew out of the airlocks, and take revenge on humanity for its creation. As usual, it's up to you to fix this mess before things get any worse...
  • The Cerebral Destroyer will be available on Friday, November 16 - time range of his availability for that day will be sometime between 20:00-22:00 GMT.

  • Only 2 tactics will be available for this raid, please collaborate together and decide on the tactics for all platforms before its release date.
  • Loot table remains largely the same. However, due to Booma's upgrade to current expedition levels, he has been removed from the Death-Match grabbag loot table.

New World Raid: Cerebral Destroyer

  • Arms manufacturers are always keen to develop the latest innovative weaponry -- products which might earn them a bigger chunk of the interstellar slaughter market and let them rake in the credits. But these days it takes a lot to make the galaxy sit up and take notice. If an up-and-coming company wants to grab headlines and play with the big boys like Terminus and Kill-Tech, they have to bring out something impressive. Something big. Something crazy... Like a giant, genetically engineered brain with psychic powers, mounted on a ship for use in space combat. At least that's what one group of boffins came up with. However, the problem with crazy experiments is that they often have equally crazy consequences. In this case, the brain decided to assume control of the ship, blast the crew out of the airlocks, and take revenge on humanity for its creation. As usual, it's up to you to fix this mess before things get any worse...
  • The Cerebral Destroyer will be available on Friday, September 21 - time range of his availability for that day will be sometime between the afternoon to evening GMT.

New Skirmish Update and Event

  • Deposits of fusion crystals have been located on an asteroid in a remote part of human space. While the politicians argue about whose dominion it falls into, bands of armed warriors are heading out to grab as many as they can...

Rev .3018


August 15, 2012[edit]

Features

  • New Premium Officer - Ocean Mistress Synactha!
    • The titles of "Ocean Master" and "Ocean Mistress" date back to the days when the Piscarians were a collection of pre-spaceflight civilizations. Due to their aquatic origins, it was akin to saying "Master / Mistress of the Universe" -- somewhat hyperbolic, but indicative of the great military power those individuals wielded. Though many of the species avoid using it today, considering it to be somewhat boastful and excessively grand, Synactha refuses to be called anything else. And given her impressive string of victories, in which she demonstrated both personal courage and tactical brilliance, the politicians to whom she answers are content to go along with it.
      • Ocean Mistress Synactha is a powerful Piscarian officer who also has the "Any" Role and Attribute.
      • She starts off with a base 80 Attack and Defense, and increases by +1 for each stat with every 2 different crew members owned.
      • Proc damage increases for each different crew owned.
      • Proc damage increases for every participant in a raid, cap at 500.
      • New proc mechanic: proc RATE increases for every other officer in your ship.


  • New Limited Offers
    • This continues the Swordmaster set, which includes Officer Azim, the Omniscient Swordmaster crew, and the Swordmaster Starblade ship.
    • The Swordmaster Starblade is another ship which will proc damage, and deals extra proc damage against Personal, Small and Medium sized raids.
    • This part of the set also gains extra synergy with Officer Xenia Panoptes, who is still available for purchase at the Bazaar.
    • In this regard, Xenia Panoptes' stats and proc damage have been increased. More specifically, she now has 48 Attack and Defense, and her base proc damage has been quadrupled.

  • The Fusion glow has been softened.

    • The Grim Reaper Set: Currently has the highest proc rate of any existing armor with a chance to proc twice in a single hit; the utility, however, is slightly different, with the ability to proc damage, and a small chance to proc substantial extra damage.
    • In terms of officer Gera Marl, do note that her bonuses to Attack and Defense function in the same way as Anita and Mr. Falyx does -- that is, for each intellect crew active in the ship, her Attack and Defense will raise respective to her level. So at level 1, she will get a +1 to **Attack and Defense for each Intellect crew, then +2 at level 2, and so on up until level 5.
    • The officer Grim Reaper, however, receives a flat bonus rate to her Attack and Defense depending on which crew type you use, and this officer's level does not affect the rate of increase per Grim Girl and/or Reaper Bot active in the ship.
    • Two new powerful ships accompany this expedition cycle, The Manhunter and The Reaper, both with unique procs that deal damage in raids.
    • This expeditions features a story arc in the equipment lore. You can read the whole story in this thread.

Features

  • New Raid: Quiskerian Temple
    • Francois Dupont, the UHW's secretary-general, was proud of himself when he arranged permission for human archaeologists to excavate Ciaxia. That world was one of the first colonized by the Quiskerians, and became their most important religious center -- home to many significant places of worship. And though the species was wiped out long ago, their territory annexed by the Huk-Kral, they've always been of interest to scholars due to their history with mankind. Hence the opportunity to study their ancient temples was too good to pass up. Now the archaeologists' ship is sending out a distress call. The last thing its crew heard before losing contact with them was screaming. What lurks in the temple they were exploring?
  • This is a small type general raid with 25 slots for participants.
  • You must craft the raid's essence in the lab page with the following ingredients: 1 Orange Starmap, 5 Purple Travel Journals, 10 Blue Energy Spheres.
  • The raid's loot tables contains two new armor sets: Quiskerian Priest and Quiskerian Warrior sets.
  • The Quiskerian Warrior set can be upgraded into the Quiskerian Invader set when combined with the Rylattuu Ultra-Power Doom Sphere in the lab.
  • This is the first raid in Legacy of a Thousand Suns to have Fusion Crystals in its loot table, which are components needed to upgrade equipment in the Fusion Depot. Please see Fusion Depot in the next section of the patch notes for more information.
  • Fusion Depot
    • You now have the ability to strengthen the attack and defense stats of your equipment via the Fusion Depot!
    • You will need to acquire and use Fusion Crystals for this process; these can be found in the Quiskerian Temple raid's loot table.
    • The Fusion Depot can be found in the player's profile screen.
    • When in the Fusion Depot screen, double-click on a weapon to load it into the Item slot; afterwards, select "Fusion Crystal" from the Slot drop-down menu and double-click on a colored Fusion Crystal.
    • Once the slots have been loaded with their appropriate object, click on the "Fuse Item" button to enhance the attack and defense values of your equipment.
    • There are a few things to take into consideration: one crystal is consumed in the process each time you fuse an item, fusion upgrades affect the entire stack of equipment, and you cannot upgrade utilities in the Fusion Depot.
    • Each crystal has their own minimum/maximum bonus values that they'll give to an item's attack and defense, with higher crystal rarities producing greater results.
    • You can craft an Orange Fusion Crystal using 1 of each colored Fusion Crystals -- Brown, Grey, Green, Blue and Purple.
    • Fused items worn by your Galaxydome team will be taken into the Galaxydome power calculations.
    • Fused items are not taken into Skirmish calculations for now; target to have them calculated is for next week's build, where there will be a new leaderboard standing for Skirmishes.

  • Made adjustments to realigned items:
    • Bubble Helmet: Now 11 Attack and 19 Defense.
    • Slaughterhouse 10: Now 42 Attack and 38 Defense.

  • New Alliance Boss - Celebration Enhancer J-54!
    • Inhabitants of the Neo-American colonies don't feel it's a proper celebration unless they're waging war on the heavens by unleashing massive firework ordinance. But as they say, it's all fun and games until someone loses an arm. Or a head... This year one city decided to avoid packing the emergency rooms by having payloads of fireworks launched from a machine instead of by human hand. So the Celebration Enhancer J-54 was born. It was a good plan. However, when they fired the lead engineer for being drunk on the job, he took his revenge in the usual manner: by reprogramming it into a rampaging engine of death and destruction. Now it's up to you to bring it down, so the revelers can instead enjoy a slower and more pleasant death from fried food and cheap beer.
  • This is a 250 seat alliance raid.
  • After defeating this raid, there is a 1 hour cooldown timer before it can be summoned again.
  • New raid features a set of firework ingredients; collect them to craft an Immolator Firework.

Bug Fixes N/A


Rev .2464


April 18, 2012[edit]

Features

  • Space Pox
    • A new raid is upon us!
      • It's bad enough when space pirates shoot the place up, kidnap people for ransom, and generally act like prats. But now a band of interstellar buccaneers are spreading around a disease they contracted in a backwater brothel. Someone needs to bring them down, before they can infect anyone else!
    • The first Space Pox raids will be summoned by your friendly (by which we mean marginally less hate-filled) developers. The raid's data will appear on its loot table, thus allowing it to spread virally (virus... disease... clever, huh?).
    • As with all raids, new loot will be up for grabs.
    • This loot includes the Rylattu Ultra-Power Doom Sphere, a potent ingredient that can be used to upgrade items.
      • For now you may use these to turn the Thugby set into the Thugby All-Star set. But more recipes will be released in the future.
      • The loot table also includes Doom Sphere Segments, which may be collected and combined to create Doom Spheres. Think of it as being like buying a weapon of mass destruction on the installment plan.
  • Raid Vault 3.0
    • A new Raid Vault may now be purchased in the Shop, for one week only.
    • Each one you purchase and open will yield 1 Officer OR 1 Crew OR 1 Ship OR 1 Utility.
    • The new items available in the vault are all related to the sport of thugby. For those unfamiliar with this athletic event, imagine the gentlemanly sport of rugby - or the padded colonial version - combined with a wanton disregard for human life.

Rev .2408


April 4, 2012[edit]

Weekly Sale

  • Energy is now being sold at a 25% discount.


Features

  • Expeditions: Click to purchase:
    • The workings of the New Item Pack have been improved.
      • As before, you won't receive duplicates unless you already own all the items in the pack. However, once you own all the items you may now click to purchase selected duplicates.
      • This means that if you wish to obtain more of a certain crew to fill out your ships, or more of a specific weapon to bolster your Galaxydome team, you'll no longer have to gamble for them.
  • Proc and Effect revamp:
    • Major behind the scenes changes have been conducted to the proc and effect systems. For those unfamiliar with the terms, note the special orange text abilities described on equipment and officers' tool-tips. When there's a triggered raid ability, such as a chance to cause bonus damage, that's a proc. When there's a static effect, such as a bonus to Stamina if the item is equipped, that's an effect.
    • In theory you shouldn't notice any mechanical differences to procs when you play. At your end they should work exactly as they did before. But the changes will hopefully improve the game's performance.
    • The revamping of effects should ensure that mismatches and lost Energy / Stamina / Honor points no longer occur.


Bug Fixes

  • The Sian Valor Medallion should now be given correctly from Zone 9, Area 4, Mission 4.
  • The Raid URL entry bar should now work properly.

Features

  • General Skorzey... has returned!!
    • General Skorzeny, one of the Centurian Collective's most feared butchers, has been dispatched to eradicate resistance on an occupied planet. But you intend to see that he never gets there. A plan is in place to ambush Skorzeny's cruiser, and assassinate the general. However, this assault can only succeed if enough heroic pilots and soldiers are willing to join in the endeavor.
    • General Skorzeny will be summoned later today! If you missed it the first time, now is your chance to get in on the action!
  • New get help feature for raids. You can now request help by clicking the green satellite button to the left of the 'engage' button on the raid list. This button functions the exact same way as clicking the "Red Alert" button in a raid.
  • Wahsh Al-Sahraa:
    • A fearsome monster lurks beneath the sands. Can you destroy Wahsh Al-Sahraa, or will your bones litter the desert?
    • Wahsh Al-Sahraa may be summoned via the Alliance Hall. (Note-this raid has a 48 hour cool down timer)
    • This is a special raid, in which every participant receives the same amount of loot. It's an opportunity for alliances to work together as a team -- or else be devoured by a desert monster. Either way is good.
    • New recipes have been added to the lab, which use ingredients taken from the creature's hide.


Bug Fixes

  • More than doubled the drop rate for skulls in zone 9.
  • Space Invaders are now available in the bazaar only after you unlock Zone 7.

  • The Zone 9 completion achievement (My Love Is Vengeance) should now be awarded correctly.
  • Players who previously completed the zone on nightmare difficulty without receiving achievement credit have been awarded some AP by way of compensation.
  • The Zone 9, Area 4 boss no longer drops the Sian Valor Medallion - as a technical issue prevented it from being awarded on the first playthrough of the area. Instead the medal will now drop from the preceding mission (only once per clear of the area).

November 9, 2011[edit]

Features

  • Happy Anniversary!
    • Legacy of a Thousand Suns is now a year old. And whilst we're far too gluttonous to share our birthday cake with you people, that doesn't mean we haven't arranged other festivities in which you can take part (but seriously, don't touch the cake...).
    • Dragon Cycle Treasure Hunt:
      • For a year we've had players asking us to give them the motorbike from the game's loading screen. Well, in conjunction with our old friend the Riddle Master we've decided to do just that. Except that you may have to work for it. That's right - it's time for another treasure hunt!
      • If you head to the Lab page, you'll see the recipe which crafts the Dragon Cycle. But if you want to obtain the six ingredients, you'll first have to break the codes and solve the riddles.
    • Anniversary Bosses:
      • Four new Alliance Raid bosses are now in the game.
      • Three are based on the people and companies which have brought you LoTS.
      • The fourth represents the four winners of our 'Who Wants to Be a Boss?' contest.
      • As usual, shiny new loot items may be beaten out of the aforementioned bosses.
      • Ingredients may also be wrested from their cold, dead hands - and used to craft fancy new armor in the Lab.
    • Grab Bags:
      • Four grab bags are available in the Shop, and may be purchased during the anniversary period.
      • The Vending Machine contains Consumables. However, please note that its shoddy construction means that you'll receive a random Consumable each time - rather than the one you selected via the controls on the front of the machine. And don't try shaking it until the thing you wanted falls out, because it has automated defense systems.
      • The Anniversary Bag contains a range of brand new anniversary items.
      • The Commemorative Coin Slot Machine will give you a random Commemorative Coin each time.
      • These coins may be used on the Lab page to obtain Felendis. Some of you may be familiar with this particular individual, and his strange propensities.
      • Please note that Commemorative Coins may also be obtained when people complete your Mission Help requests during the anniversary period, and via Daily Rewards.
    • The Sian Hero Footlocker will give you a random Sian Hero item each time (including the Sian Dragon Gun and Thunder Jian).
      • Their stats have been improved in honor of the occasion. Those of you who already have one or more of these items will notice that the ones in your inventory have become more powerful in accordance with these new stat values.
    • Orphan of Heaven:
      • Every player who's logged into the game since October 1 has been given the Orphan of Heaven.
      • To access it, simply select 'Sidekick' in your inventory's drop-down menu.
    • For one week only, Golden Suns are being sold at a special discount.
  • PvP Health:
    • A special PvP Health Bar has been added to the game.
    • If you sustain damage during PvP, either as the attacker or the defender, that will be deducted from this bar rather than your regular Health Bar.
    • This means that players will no longer find themselves unexpectedly short on Health whilst battling Mission or Raid bosses.
    • The PvP Health Bar matches your regular one in length, and will be refilled by any means through which your regular Health Bar is refilled.
  • The Halloween items have been reclaimed by the darkness, and are no longer available for purchase. If you missed anything, you'll need a Tardis or DeLorean to obtain it.


Bug Fixes

  • The Psycho Sextet Ship now displays the correct number of Officers and Crew.
  • The Werewolf's Pelt no longer incorrectly appears in two separate spots within the Mystery Expedition pack.

    • With the New Item Pack, you will never receive a duplicate item unless you already own every item in the pack.
