Patch 167 & 168
Written by Brammers   
Monday, 10 December 2007

It's here! Tha patch that changes the faction relations back to the old NC1 relations is here! The thread to discuss the changes can be found here! And for the Storyline on what went wrong in the dome, go here!

And of course click on Read More for the patch notes! 


Due to several changes to the game world, all game zones had to be reset. This means that the respawn of NPCs can take some time after the application of the patch. Due to this delayed respawn, it can happen that some missions are not starting at once. We ask you for your patience if you encounter this problem and will do our best to minimize this delay. Please contact the Gamemaster team via the support system if you notice any missing NPCs.

Please use this thread to discuss the changes and report any bugs you might encounter during play and avoid any unnecessary comments or spam.
