DevPost Roundup: December 24, 2016

A weekly round-up of the more noteworthy DevPosts on the Official Forums. This week’s roundup features several PSAs from the DE staff, information regarding the Sari Syandana changes, The Glast Gambit update and megathreads, as well as some changes and bug fixes.

All information from this post is sourced from the official DevPost Tracker on the forums (and occasionally the dev team’s twitter accounts).


[DE]Drew – “PSA: Riven Mods not linked to a rifle
Some players on PC may have acquired Riven Mods which are not linked to any rifle — these Riven mods are intended for the upcoming Hema rifle and a script will be run after Update 19.5 arrives to  correct this issue.

[DE]Drew – “Server Maintenance (December 22nd)” (2)
A notification that some of the servers are being upgraded on Thursday morning between 8-9 AM Eastern. These upgrades will affect all platforms.

[DE]Taylor – “[The Glast Gambit] General Feedback
Due to player feedback, Digital Extremes chose to release all Riven Mods within the same reward pool rather than having them be seasonal rotations.

[DE]Taylor – “Ghost Clan needs 5000 Mutagen samples to research Hema…
The Resource costs for the new Hema primary weapon research are intentional. The justification offered is that each clan only needs to get all members (at the maximum capacity) to contribute 500 Mutagen Samples in order to unlock this new weapon with a novel mechanic. Note: I strongly recommend players to inform themselves of the situation and to continue offering feedback regarding this topic. Feel free to refer to the Warframe Resource Cost Log to arm yourself with information to build a stronger argument.

[DE]Taylor – “PSA: The Index Auto-Failure Bug Credit Refund” (2)
An issue with the revised The Index missions was failing to award players after completing the mission. A script has been deployed to compensate players for funds lost by participating in the missions. Taylor also responded to inquiries about the new Infested Salvage mission and changes on the way to improve spawn rates.

[DE]Danielle – “December 23rd Server issues [MONITORING]
Some server issues popped up Friday evening. DE is monitoring the situation.
