Battlestar Galactica Online Update – 27 April 2011 Release Notes

This Update introduces the option for existing characters to switch to the opposing faction to help balance server populations, and adds new ships for both factions.

FACTION SWITCHING
Faction switching allows existing characters on a server to switch to the opposing faction while keeping their progression, resources and equipment. Please read the following notes carefully, as they contain important information about this new option:

Availability
Faction Switching will be made available on an individual server basis, according to the average online populations of both factions
Announcements concerning which servers the system is currently available on will be made via forums – please note that the system may be switched on and off with short notice, according to the faction balance on each server
When Faction Switching is enabled on a server, the option will be available to characters of the dominant faction on that server who are Level 10 or higher
Faction Switching will only be available in one direction – from the faction with the higher population on a server to the faction with the lower population
As such, Faction Switching should be regarded as a permanent decision – if you choose to switch factions, you may never be able to switch back

How to Switch
When Faction Switching is enabled on a server, characters who are eligible to make use of the system will have a 'Switch Faction' button in the upper-right corner of the HUD
Clicking this button will open a window with details of the system and a button that will allow you to start the faction switch process
This window will also appear as a 'pop-up' for all eligible characters shorter after logging in for the first time once the Faction Switch system is enabled

Switching Faction
If you choose to switch faction:
Your pilot will be converted to a pilot of the opposing faction
You will need to create a new 'avatar' for your character – during this process you may change your pilot's name if you wish
You will retain your pilot's Level, Skills and all other progression apart from faction-specific Duties
All your ships will be converted to the equivalent ship of the opposing faction
You will keep all your resources, ship systems, ammo and other items (please note that all systems installed on ships will be moved to your Locker)
In addition, pilots that switch factions will receive a resource bonus as a reward from their new faction – the specific bonus will be detailed in the Faction Switch window before you decide to switch, but will include Cubits, Titanium, Tylium and Merits

COMBAT, SHIPS & SYSTEMS

INTERFACE
Main updates:

Fleet Stores/Archives
