October 17: Version 11

  • Hello commanders!

    Tomorrow, January 18, we will update the live servers with the newest game version:
    - at 10:00 CET OGame.org Undae
    - at 13:00 CET the rest of the universes

    Changelog:
    - Removed country flags from the highscore.
    - Added country flags to the chat.
    - Fixed event banners not getting displayed in the selected language.
    - Fixed demolish not working when queued after a construction.
    - Added two digits to the decimals of class bonuses displayed on the lifeform player bonuses page.
    - Fixed Slingshot Autopilot providing less Deuterium the earlier a fleet was called back instead of more.
    - Changed the Deuterium from Slingshot Autopilot to no longer being immediately added when calling back a fleet. It will be added to the planet once the fleet arrives back now.
    - Fixed an error showing up when opening a shared report of a deleted player.
    - The default names will be shown to each player in that player's selected language. So, a colony/moon that has not been renamed yet will be called "Colony"/"Moon" for a player with English selected. If another player views the same colony/moon and has German selected, he will see it named as "Kolonie"/"Mond". Once it gets renamed, both players will see it with the same name.
    - Fixed several system messages not being correctly translated if the player's selected language differs from the universe's original language.
    - Changed the support link to always redirect to the support page of the universe's language instead of the player's selected language.
    - Fixed ship names being displayed in different languages in messages containing them
    - Fixed the support and forum links redirecting to EN instead of Origin on the Alpha PTS.
    - Changed all inactive accounts without vacation mode to get transferred to group targets during server merges.
    - Fixed code showing up in the description of the Supra Refractor on the lifeform management page.
    - Fixed the "Construction possible" time always being displayed as "unknown" (Commander feature).
    - Fixed the action buttons shifting around after ignoring another player.
    - Fixed the amount of needed energy not being displayed for lifeform buildings.
    - Fixed the lifeform icons not looking correct in lifeform discovery messages.
    - Fixed being unable to send fleets to destroyed planets.
    - Fixed being unable to transfer back to the universe you came from right away after ending up on the graveyard.
    - Fixed colony and moon names not being created in the player's selected language if it differs from the universe's original language.
    - Several fixes and improvements in the back end that might lead to front end issues which can be fixed with a hard reload (For Chrome Ctrl+Shift+R (clearing the browser cache) . For Firefox, Internet Explorer and Opera GX use Ctrl+F5. For Opera Ctrl+Shift+Del.).

  • Hello commanders!


    Since we still have some leftovers with wrong languages being displayed in some of the game rounds, in order to fix it you will feel a small kick from the game.

    We apologise for the inconvenience!


    The OGame Team

    Graveyard returning rules

    The Graveyard rules have been simplified. From now on the account will be only able to return to the previous universe where it was.
    If an account goes to the Graveyard from EN 1, it will be only possible to move back to EN 1.
    Scenarios:
    - The previous live round still exists: the account will see it as a target to move out of the Graveyard;
    - The previous live round is part of a running Global Merge: the account will have the targets of its universe on the running Global Merge;
    - The previous live round is part of a finished Global Merge: the account will have the targets of it's universe on the Global Merge;
    - The previous live round has been part of a old Global Merge: the player will need to contact the support team of the community where the account was (for example: if the account was on PL 68 before the Graveyard, OGame.pl Game-Team needs to be contacted).

    :!: The inactivity script will be enable with the update.

    Tomorrow, March 7, we will update the live servers with the newest game version:
    - at 10:00 CET all OGame.org universes
    - at 13:00 CET the rest of the communities

    Changelog:
    - Cloning Laboratory will now improve all Kaelesh-specific lifeform technologies on that planet
    - Added a button for sending system-wide discovery missions inside the galaxy tab
    - Added a textbox inside the combat simulator for legal information
    - Added limits of 1.6 billion ships and 25 attackers/defenders to the combat simulator to increase its performance.
    - Fixed IPMs being able to be sent through other galaxies on the mobile app

    Cloning Laboratory Enhancement

    Kaelesh have been promoted as a Lifeform for players who enjoy exploration missions. However, the overall building functions of Kaelesh don´'t really support this statement and as correctly stated are a bit on the weaker side regarding progression benefits. Therefore, Kaelesh will receive a new building bonus for the Cloning Laboratory. The Cloning Laboratory will now offer a secondary effect which is added to its primary function, improving all Kaelesh specific technologies on the planet by a certain percentage. It basically works like the tech buildings for Humans and Mechas but only specifically for Kaelesh technologies. With how the building cost scale and the bonus per level players who selected Kaelesh as lifeform on their planets will receive an interesting option to further invest into to boost their explorer and general Kaelesh lifeform technologies.
