Wing Commander Invasion 2.65 Changelog
- nitromon

- Do not need patch 2.6, this overwrites it.

- Changed all Z layer for each type to prevent graphics collision.

- Nephilim -
- Changes just to prevent collision. Nephilims shapes and size makes their shiplayer difficult to set.
- Hydra changed to capital
- Orca changed to capital space layer, but class remains frigate. (Too much issue keeping it on a frigate layer b/c of size)
- Tiamat will have some collision b/c the claw diameter is just too huge. Also it looks more realistic at times having starships inside the claw. For this reason, the Z adjustment for Tiamat and Tiamat hero is not set lower than the current setting.

- Kilrathi -
- Changes mostly due to size. Makes sense smaller ships are on higher layers.
- shaalkhar changed to a capital
- Kamekha changed to a frigate. Fixed issue where kamekha models remains after death.
- Rak' Shaal'ar changed to a frigate (swapped with Fralthi D)
- Fralthi D changed to a capital
- Ralaxath changed to a frigate
- Shavier changed to a supercapital shiplayer

- Confed -
- Changed Durango to a Frigate. Not b/c of size, but because it is G1.
- Increased Ranger scale to 720m, spacelayer to frigate
- Increased Hades scale to 777m
- Changed Nimitz to a corvette.
- Fix Pelican, correctly removed lifetime limit, reduced healing 50%, limit 2

- AI -
Reduced build time in difficulties
Easy - .75
Normal - 0.6
Hard - 0.5

Reduced Credit Accumulation in difficults
Easy - 20
Normal - 30
Hard - 40

Faction Credits Accumulation
Confed - 0.95
Nephilim - 0.93
Kilrathi - 0.88

- This is simply a balancing and correction patch. I take no credit other than the changes I've made. The original mod was created and developed by mapayne.
