Our first Final Candidate for EE 11.1 just passed all of our internal tests and is scheduled to be deployed to Zog tomorrow morning during regular daily maintenance (Friday, 1/22/2016, 9-10 AM Pacific).

If there's anything you'd like to set up beforehand to make sure it handles the transition well, please set that up tonight. In particular, any Settlement Leaders on Zog might want to try setting the permissions for their Settlement and Settlement Upkeep vaults to verify that they get changed to the default settings when EE 11.1 is deployed. After deployment, you can then try altering those permissions to see what effects they have on vault and crafting access.

If anyone wants to join in on the Test Server and doesn't currently have access, just send an email to customer.support@goblinworks.com and I'll get you set up.

What are the default settings?

I think we are getting TOO much carrot with the planned changes, let's add some stick to it.
Turn on Infections and strength generation, so people can farm all they want, but if not careful could cause big problems in the area.
Though I would use this forumla for spread speed; Infection_Points_into_Hex = 5000/ESCALATION_STR_MAX.
This will mean the weaker the escalations, the faster it will spread and since they are weaker, it should be easier to clean up. it'll make for good T1 recipe farming for buildings or helping the newbie in the area fight an escalation they can handle. It would mean the tougher escalations will infect much slower, and SHOULD be manageable, but farm too long and you might suddenly get a number of tough infected hexes.

This way there is a carrot baiting folks and a stick to make folks move it on killing the boss.
And to make sure folks don't like the infection, the infect should not spawn; Legends, Generals or Heroes, but tones of large mob groups making the area less friendly to gatherers and escalation farmers.

Agreed with the carrot thing. While I'm not sure about your suggestion overall (it has pros and cons) It would force settlements to concentrate on all their escalation hexes rather than just 1 with loot.

However would we really care if we had bonedancers across 70% of the map again? I think not, UNLESS, it impacted the settlement (say reducing effectiveness of outposts… ). That's a mechanic that's been mentioned but probably not on the horizon right now.

I agree it is not completely the best stick to add, but one I think is reasonable given limited dev resources.

Everything should be a double edged sword,
and there should always be give and take in a design change provided that it was nearly balanced in the first place.
