Update details (Official)

Battlestar Galactica Online Update – 14 June 2011

TRIAD & PROPHECIES


Colonial pilots can now play Triad when aboard the Galactica, and Cylon pilots can now receive Prophecies from the hybrid when aboard the Basestar:


Colonial pilots can play Triad by speaking to Starbuck in the Galactica Rec Room
Cylon pilots can receive Prophecies from the hybrid by speaking to Number Six in the Basestar Rec Room
Pilots can play one hand of Triad or receive a single Prophecy for free each day – additional Triad hands or Prophecies cost 200 Cubits each

All Triad hands and Prophecies have a selection of possible rewards associated with them – when a pilot receives a Triad hand or Prophecy, they are randomly allocated one of the possible rewards for that hand or Prophecy

All rewards have a value equivalent to at least 200 Cubits, but the rarer Triad hands and Prophecies have rewards that are worth much, much more or cannot normally be purchased

When playing Triad, Colonial pilots can win a wide variety of items, or pick up hints and advice from other pilots that can improve their performance (represented by Boosters of various types) or rumors about the movement patterns of the Cylon fleet (represented by Fragmented FTL Coordinates – see 'Convoy Raid Missions', below)
Likewise, when receiving a Prophecy, Cylon pilots can be awarded a wide variety of items, or receive inspiration and advice from the hybrid that can improve their performance (represented by Boosters of various types) or give them clues about the movement patterns of the Colonial fleet (represented by Fragmented FTL Coordinates – see 'Convoy Raid Missions', below)
The 'Hand Guide' and 'Prophecy Guide' buttons on the Triad and Prophecy windows detail the hands and Prophecies and the possible rewards for each


CONVOY RAID MISSIONS

Convoy Raid missions are a special new mission type that can be unlocked by collecting Fragmented FTL Coordinates:
Fragmented FTL Coordinates represent rumors and clues concerning the movement patterns of the enemy fleet
Fragmented FTL Coordinates can only be received by playing Triad or consulting the hybrid for a Prophecy
Collecting 100 Fragmented FTL Coordinates will allow your pilot to predict the location of a staging area used by valuable enemy convoys and unlock a special Convoy Raid mission
Colonial pilots can begin Convoy Raid missions by speaking to Starbuck in the Galactica Rec Room
Cylon pilots can begin Convoy Raid missions by speaking to Number Six in the Basestar Rec Room
During a Convoy Raid mission, a series of enemy convoy ships will jump into the staging area, along with a variety of escorting enemy ships – your goals is to defeat all of the enemy ships
Convoy Raid missions feature special NPC ships, and both they and the convoy ships drop much more valuable loot and reward much more XP than normal NPCs
If you are defeated during the course of a Convoy Raid mission, you will be given the opportunity to continue the mission for a Cubit cost
Once a Convoy Raid mission is completed (or you are defeated and choose not to continue), you will need to collect another set of 100 Fragment FTL Coordinates to attempt another Convoy Raid mission

CHAT SYSTEM REVISION

The chat system has been revised:

Global and Localized Channels
The chat system now supports 'Global' and 'Localized' versions of the Fleet, System and Open chat channels
Global versions of these channels are restricted to English, as before
Localized versions of channels allow players to chat in other languages, according to the client language selected from the drop-down in the upper-right of the game website (where you login to the game)
A small icon in the chat entry field shows which channel you are currently using for chat – clicking this icon will switch between the Global (represented by a globe icon) and Localized (represented by a flag of the appropriate nationality) channels

You can filter your chat window to display only Global, only Localized or both channels via small icons to the lower right of the chat window
General Chat Improvements
There are now small icons to the left of the chat window that act as shortcuts for sending a message to the Fleet, System, Open and Whisper channels (note that these icons will automatically switch between the Global and Localized versions of these channels, according to which you have chosen to use via the icon in the chat entry field)
The reliability of Wing and Squadron chat has been improved
