Vendetta Online 1.8.496-497

VO 1.8.497 includes:

- Attacking and defense distance of Unaligned Pirate defenders now varies more randomly.
- Unaligned pirate trident now comes back between 4 and 12 hours after being defeated.
- Access Key names can only contain letters, numbers, and spaces. Leading and trailing spaces are removed.
- List of items desired by a station are now determined by maximum profit.
- Framerate limiter is not used when VSync is enabled on Windows.

Earlier this week in 1.8.496:

- Improved game stability with MacOS X 10.15 Catalina

A number of updates this week. The OS X patch should alleviate problems with the 10.15 update, but if anyone runs into other new problems on the Mac, please let us know via the Bugs forum or (if necessary for privacy) a Support Ticket.

We've made some tweaks to the Unaligned Pirates, based on Suggestions Forum player feedback, hopefully you enjoy them. Further (respectful) feedback, based on testing, would be welcome. The Pirates are a system in which we can experiment with NPC behaviour, without risking breaking other large areas of the game, so we're much more willing to try "new things" there.

The Items desired by the station is now based around maximum profit, which means it excludes items where we cannot calculate profit, like items the station may "want" but are inherently "drops", and the like. We will continue to evolve this, but for now it should at least solve the issue of people arriving to sell things on the "High Demand" list, and finding they didn't make a profit.

That's all for now. Have a great weekened, everyone!
