This and previous week, I've been improving Sector Six loot.

I have made many changes to random part generation system, made higher grade parts more common, added 22 part properties, gave parts more interesting names, but most importantly – I have implemented relic system and first 7 relics!

Relics not only are the rarest and the most powerful items in the game - they also have unique effects, skins, and even animations!

I would have made a video about relics, but I didn't have enough time for that, so instead scroll down for screenshots.

With relics implemented, now I will work on the last story mission and several small changes.

Relic facts:

  • After rarity changes, relics are now rarest items in the game, their drop chance is 1 in 500.
  • Relics can be sold for 2 relic fragments. 8 relic fragments turn into a relic.
  • Relics give reliquary items instead of alloy when dismantled.
  • Reliquary items re-roll and transform relics.
  • Relics can have up to 7 properties, but cannot be amplified.
  • Relics are always level 1 and have properties that are useful no matter what level you are.
  • You cannot install more than 3 relics. Yet.
  • You cannot install relic duplicates. E.g.: You can't have two Quasar Domes installed.
  • 7 relics are implemented, I will implement at least 10 more before game launches.
