News, Updates, and Information / February 26, 2014 - Downtime
« on: February 24, 2014, 04:43:15 PM »
All Stardrift Empires Universes will be offline Wednesday, February 26, 2014 from 15:30UTC to 16:30UTC (game time) for scheduled maintenance. All tasks, including resource production, missions, and attacks scheduled to occur during the downtime will be processed at the end of the maintenance period.

During this downtime we will be moving to a new hosting environment and upgrading the underlying code architecture. This should produce a better play environment for everyone. However, as a result of the move, you may need to refresh the DNS records for your local internet connection to reach the game at the end of the maintenance period. This can generally be done by restarting your modem, router, and computer.

If additional news becomes available regarding this maintenance it will be posted on the forum.

« on: February 07, 2014, 03:37:20 AM »
We've been notified by our host that they experienced a brief power outage which caused some disruption to services. This problem should now be resolved and there should have been minimal impact on gameplay as players are still under protection from this morning's outage.

News, Updates, and Information / February 6, 2014 - Server Outage
« on: February 06, 2014, 10:16:27 AM »
We apologize for the server outage and any problems it may have caused. Our host, while performing maintenance on their servers, effectively stopped all traffic to our games early this morning. As a result, we turned all of the games off at approximately 1:30AM EST. When we are confident that they have returned traffic, with no further problems, within the next few hours we will bring all of the games online again and will likely prevent attacks against players for a 24 hour period. Thank you for understanding.

« on: July 02, 2013, 08:50:31 PM »
Tomorrow morning, July 3, 2013, we will update the settings for NPCs as follows:

NPCs will no longer be protected by newbie protection. Anyone, at any level, can hit any NPC. Additionally, we will double the number of NPCs that spawn per hour.

We will not be altering the algorithm that determines the number of ships and defenses that spawn on each NPC.

News, Updates, and Information / April 11, 2013 Downtime
« on: April 10, 2013, 02:16:42 PM »
Stardrift Empires and Stardrift Empires Nova will be offline Thursday, April 11, 2013 from 14:00UTC to 16:00UTC (game time) for maintenance. All tasks, including resource production, missions, and attacks scheduled to occur during the downtime will be processed at the end of the maintenance period. If any additional news becomes available regarding this downtime, we'll post it here.

Following the downtime the following changes will be live:

Updates/Changes:
Espionage reports of NPCs that are in the final two hours of their lifespan will indicate that 'it appears they will be leaving soon'.
Crew Droids will be removed from all planets and instead just be a number listed in your Factory related to total number of crew droids on your account.

Bug Fixes:
Warp Gates will again properly use the cool down time of the origin warp gate.
We have fixed a number of problems with building values, trades, and transports with a single resource value about 2,147,483,647 not working as expected.
Harvests should now respect the fact that a planet is under attack and wait in the queue to process if they arrive while a battle is processing.
NPCs will again properly respect the max RSP value of the largest player in the Universe when spawning.
If a moon is destroyed, return flights to that moon should no longer be lost. (Only universes with moon destruction)

News, Updates, and Information / Crew Droid Changes!
« on: April 01, 2013, 02:26:53 PM »
Starting this April in Starfleet Commander and Stardrift Empires we will require the once 'foolish' crew droids to man the ships in your attacks. While we 'tease' out the final details of this game change, this is what we have planned:

For every ten ships included in an attack, you must have one crew droid included to operate the attack.
Crew droids must be included in the attack through the use of Charon Transports.
If the Charon Transport containing the crew droid is lost in battle all of those crew droids will be lost from your account.

We hope you enjoy this change!
