Exposure - Patch Notes

Sorry for the delayed patch notes everyone, we are still working on some last minute improvements. Expect Exposure to go live today, March 7th. Servers will be down from 4PM GMT/8AM PST until 5PM GMT/9AM PST. Servers will be wiped to ensure proper patch deployment.

Radiation and Armor

 

Radiation

 

Replaced the old degradation mechanic with a new radiation and armor system. Radiation is the measure of overall exposure to both EM and Ionizing radiation at any given location in the Hellion system. It increases the further away players are from the starting zone. Radiation deals damage over time to both modules and EVA players without adequate protection.

 

Nanite Cores

 

Nanite Cores serve as a direct counter to radiation damage. These parts can be placed inside a new Nanite Diffuser system found in all ships and modules. Nanite Cores add a layer of armor over the hull preventing damage from any source up to their maximum armor value.
