Welcome to the newest wave of captains taking flight in the void! With Star Traders: Frontiers at 40% off, we hope you'll take a moment to tell a friend, post a suggestion and leave a review when you're ready. Update #212 follows up on adding new cards, a new faction-specific ship, some major new ship components, and improves the Star Atlas search based on user feedback.
Blockading for Cargo
With Update #212, we've added 3 new cards to Blockading ops, allowing you to not only take money by extorting enemy ships for tithes but by forcing enemy merchants to surrender and looting their hold. Between the three cards, "Stolen Cargo" will capture up to a moderate 40 cargo, a mix of manufactured and raw cargo, while "Corsair's Haul" will gain up to 60 cargo with a heavier focused on valuable manufactured goods. And finally, the "Rare Trade Heist" will steal up to 16 Rare Trade Goods from a Smuggler for possibly a big pay off.
In all three cases, these cards are more likely to appear during Trade Wars and Trade Bans, as well as Quadrant-wide Rumors related to the Jyeeta and Merchant Fleets.
The cards will only be available if you have worthwhile amount of cargo space empty in your hold.
New Ship: Lockwood Defender
The Lockwood is Rychart's long-range strategic reconnaissance craft design and manufactured in top-secret foundries on Rychart worlds. Equipped with the best on-ground and orbital Intel gathering technology, combined with a custom Rychart Behemoth Engine the Lockwood is an incredible long range top notch spying vessel.
New Ship Components
The galactic starports are working double time to churn out even more powerful components. These high 3 new high end additions will take a bit out of any budget, but are worth if to perfect your ship.
The Hyperion Launch Bay is the first craft and officer component, docking both 1 Craft and housing 1 Officer, as well as a major Fuel reserve of 100 and significant armor. These are gold plating power for any large carrier!
Deflector Array 5 and 6 have now also gone into production, providing ramped up Radiation and Void Resistance as well even better defense against craft for your capital ship. For combat vessels of any size, these are worth their significant investment!
Star Atlas Search
We've fixed a hole in the Star Atlas search that was preventing searches like "buys Travor Spice Wax" (or just "buys Trav") from working. Rare Trade Goods are now included in these searches! Happy selling out there.
