Shrine of the Eidolon: Update 22.16.0



  • Shrine of the Eidolon: Update 22.16.0

    Mainline Disclaimer Redux:

    Tenno! It's ANOTHER mainline! While we've omitted a lot of Work-in-progress items like Khora, this Update contains all the changes and fixes we've been working away on this past month. Like all Mainlines so far this year, there may be a few bumps/unintended partial work that has shipped. We've checked it out but there's always something that falls through the cracks. Please let us know if you find something odd or very broken!

    Dojo Remaster
    If you're new to Warframe and you've missed our handy Dojo guide here: https://www.warframe.com/news/the-tenno-guide-to-clans, don't worry. The link isn't going anywhere, and we're about to detail out what 'Dojo Remaster' means for you!

    First, it's worth mentioning this is largely rooted in improved functionality across the board. We do plan on releasing even more updates soon with further lighting improvements and the 'Build your Own Obstacle Course', so keep checking back for that.

    And now, the Remaster!
    With this Remaster we've aimed to do a few things:

    1. Give you better decorating tools.
    2. Offer you more decorations.
    3. Give you more functionality in the Dojo.
    • The new and improved Decoration Placement functionality is here for what will probably fill the next few days of your Warframe play time! This new Placement functionality applies to both Dojo and Orbiter decorating.
      • Placing Decorations now uses a free cam technology, similar to Captura!
      • Decoration Placement now gives the following new options:
        • Ascend/Descend
        • Billboard Facing
        • Push/Pull
        • Placement: Surface Snapping or Free Placement
          • *If you experience issues when attempting to place Decorations, double tap that F to turn off Surface Snapping (working on a fix)
        • Cycle Grid Snapping
      • Decorations in both the Dojo and Orbiter can now be placed mid-air.
      • Decoration Placement bindings can be customized at the bottom of Options > Controls.
    • Revamp your Dojo with the all new Faction themed Dojo Decorations and FX Decorations! Over 60 new Decorations to choose from to give your Dojo a whole new vibe (we ask that you please refrain from setting snowmen on fire with this newly acquired decorating powers):
      • Corpus Barrels, Batteries, BENCHES, and more!
      • Grineer Catwalks, Fuel Tanks, Pipes, and more!
      • Steam, Sparks, Fire, and more!
    • Dojos have received improved lighting! We have more Dojo lighting improvements to come, and yes, I will refrain from using any ‘lit’ puns for the sake of us all.
    • Load straight into any mission from the Dojo by accessing the Star Chart in the Observatory room!
    • You can now access your Arsenal via the ESC Menu if you have a completed Observatory Room in your Dojo.
    • Increased the Decoration capacity in all Dojo rooms!
      • Clan Hall is now 600
      • Clan Great Hall is now 700
      • Clan Greater Hall is now 800
      • Clan Grand Hall is now 900
      • Clan Grandest Hall is now 1000
      • Connectors are now 200
      • All other room Decoration capacity varies - check the Dojo Architect screen
    • Clan members can contribute their own Orbiter Decorations to the Clan Vault using the Treasury! These Decorations will be listed as "[item name] (Vault)" in the selection menu.
      • Vaulted Decorations can be viewed by going into the ESC Menu > Decorate > Personal Decorations.
      • Only Architects can place Orbiter decorations in the Dojo.
      • Architects can access Orbiter Decorations via the Treasury menu, selecting “Decorations” > “Personal Decorations” and choosing from the Clan’s donated Decorations.
        • Since Architects are the only ones that can place Orbiter Decorations in the Dojo, they are the only ones that will see this option in the Treasury.
      • If an Orbiter Decoration is removed from the Dojo, it will simply go back into the Vault, where it can be placed again if desired.
      • Orbiter Decorations CANNOT be refunded back to the original Orbiter inventory once they’ve been donated to the Clan Vault.
        • You will receive a confirmation prompt when donating one of your own Orbiter Decorations to your Clan’s Vault.

    *Please note that the following items cannot be contributed to the Clan Vault:

    • All Articulas, Displays, and unique items (Neewa's Drawings, etc)
    • Ambulas Noggle
    • Stalker Noggle
    • Shadow Debt Noggles (Acolytes)
    • Kuria Statuette
    • Sacred Vessel
    • Oro Ornament
    • Rell’s Donda
    • Prominence Wisp Totem
    • Thousand-Year Fish Statuette
    • Ayatan Sculptures - we know many of you enjoy creating monstrous creatures out of Ayatan, but we want to prevent any Endo tears from accidental non-refundable donations. Once everyone familiarizes themselves with this new 'Decorations in the Vault are permanent' we'll loosen this restriction.

    Discord Rich Presence:
    Let your Discord friends see where and what you’re playing on Warframe! If enabled, your Discord account will show the following information in real time while you play:

    • Mission type and difficulty level
    • Planet and node
    • Open spots in your squad

    Controller Auto-detection:

    A whole new setting called Controller Interface now allows you to have the option of AutoDetect! AutoDetect will try to detect what you're using, when you use it. So if you prefer the drag-n-drop functionality of the Mods screen, you can keep using a mouse to do that and see the regular keyboard and mouse UI, however, when you next pick up a controller and press a button, the UI will detect that and refresh to show you controller button Icons instead.

    Within the Controller Interface you can also permanently toggle on/off the controller interface, which forces the UI into either regular (keyboard and mouse) mode, or controller mode (this works separately from auto-detection and Steam Big Picture mode).

    Lastly, you can now choose the UI Icon set under the new setting Controller Icon Set. You can choose between XB1, XB 360, PS4, Steam, and AutoDetect (AutoDetect is essentially XB1). However, using a Steam controller will always result in Steam Icons.

    General Additions:

    • Added a Chat command to enable ‘Do Not Disturb’ (offline mode). Enabling this will prevent any new Private Messages and mission invites from appearing. If you have a private conversation tab active or if you initiate a private conversation, you will still be able to communicate.
      • Enable Do Not Disturb by typing /offline in Chat
      • Disable Do Not Disturb by typing /online in Chat
    • Added new placeable Orbiter Decorations:
      • Equinox Day-Form Noggle
      • Equinox Night-Form Noggle
      • Equinox Combined-Form Noggle
      • Ropaka Planter
      • Daaru Planter
      • Aranya Planter
      • Kukkura Pet Bed
    • You can now customize your Operator and access your Focus Trees while in Cetus!
    • Added “Mission Time” to the End of Mission screen under STATS.
    • Added Fishing, Amps, Zaws and Mining categories to the Foundry.
      • If you do not own items that are in these categories, you will not see the respective Foundry tabs.
    • Added FEATURES, BODY, and AMP categories to the Operator customizations options.
    • Added a description to the Meditate Emote.
      • A pose to focus one’s mind.
    • Added a slight delay on when accessing the Star Chart so you can still see your Warframe kneel before the planets come into view.
    • Added confirmation dialogues to most of the options in the Warframe launcher.

    Sound Changes

    • Enemy Hit Notifications: If a bullet hits a Grineer in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make it sound? WELL NOW IT WILL! Targeting and damaging enemies with weapons will produce a much more defined contact sound to identify if your shots are dealing damage. You will now also hear whizz-bys and ground surface effect types better as well. This feature is especially useful when shooting at enemies from long distances. We also hear you loud and clear too, which is why this sound enhancement can be toggled on/off in the Audio Options Menu. See and hear Audio Director, George Spanos, display it in action: https://twitter.com/GameSoundDesign/status/973602069809594368
    • Volume Sliders: The Audio sliders in the Audio Options Menu now calculate their offsets between each other properly. When Audio sliders are set low, they will now properly cull sounds that shouldn't be heard. In summation, Warframe’s audio mix now sounds better.
    • Mix Effect Ducking: How Warframe ducks out sound is now calculated in a more logical way to produce an improved sounding audio mix.
    • Added a “whoosh” like sound right before landing when jumping from great heights/distances.
    • Added new aiming in/out transition sounds when using Primaries and Secondaries.

    Captura Changes:

    • Improved how precisely you can alter the Camera Duration slider (increment by 0.1 when using the arrow buttons next to the slider). This means that the minimum speed for Camera movements is now lower!
    • Improved optimization of Advanced Captura Mode.
    • The playing Camera will now stop if you decide to edit a Camera Position while it's playing.
    • Improvements for adding/removing Camera Positions while camera is playing in Captura.

    Eidolon Shrine Changes:

    As most Tenno have discovered, Eidolon Shards are necessary to continue your hunt for the Gantulyst and Hydrolyst. These changes are not towards the Shrine mechanic itself, but for the way Shards are consumed if a unfortunate Host migration or loss of connection occurs.

    • Brilliant/Radiant Shards are not removed from player inventory until the respective Eidolon spawns.
    • Players can now remove their Shard after inserting it into the Shrine (until the Eidolon spawns, at which point it is removed from their inventories and consumed by the Shrine).
    • All Shards are removed from the Shrine and returned to Player inventories if a Host migration occurs before the Eidolon spawns.
    • All Shards are removed from the Shrine and returned to Player inventories if Night ends before the respective Eidolon spawns.
    • All Shards are removed from the Shrine and returned to Player inventories if players extract from that Plains before the Eidolon spawns.
    • Vomvalysts no longer drop Sentient Cores when they are auto-'killed' at sunrise. Unlike vampires, Vomvalysts are not killed by the sun, they just “go back to where they came from”.

    Visual Effects improvements.

    Based on feedback we are making some changes to the intensity of Visual Effects in Warframe, especially in the context of Eidolon fights!

    • Reduced some visual noise/lens flares on numerous Warframe abilities.
    • Reduced some visual noise/lens flares on the Operator Amp explosions/melee burst.
    • Greatly toned down lens flare brightness and durations of Teralyst abilities (and variants)to help with visual clutter.

    General Changes:

    • Improved handling of rare cases of cache-corruption that would lead to crashes on startup.
    • Improved hitbox sizes on the Eidolon Synovias (weak points) to make them easier to hit/target when moving.
    • Fixed an extra "0" damage number popping up for every instance of damage dealt to a Teralyst Synovia. Shotguns will therefore no longer shower the Teralyst with a confetti of zeroes when hitting a weak-point.
    • Boltor Prime Status Chance increased from 32% to 34%.
    • The Shard selection screen will now show you how many Brilliant or Radiant Shards you have available to convert into Focus (originally this number would only be available to you once you had selected what Shard type you wanted to convert).

    Spoiler

    JEpgqxc.png
