Chinese version patch notes - Chronologically






Introduction

As we all know, voyage century was originally made by chinese gaming company Snail games. Since then, they sold the game license to other gaming companies. IGG is one of the first companies who bought the license.
IGG's version is always couple of patches behind the original chinese version.


Because of that many players are interested to know which new features next patch brings.
In order to reduce the amount of questions, and for my own purposes, I decided to make a short log of all patches in original version.



Notes - ( please read! )


- We might not get the same patches, or same features. IGG has rights to decide if they want to release something or not.

- Everything is translated with google translator from official chinese website. Patch names are different from ours, and translated so they might be different from original ones.

- I'm translating everything they added in their announcements, there's always many more features and items they didn't announce.

- Green lettered patch names are our version names. Green check marks means we already run these patches in our version.

- I also hope this is not illegal. This could be considered as advertising other game versions. Although chinese version is made especially for chinese market. Outsiders have hard time making account and playing. Not to mention chinese language is huge barrier.



SPOILER ALERT!!!
If you don't want to know anything about future patches, please don't go beyond this point.

- Other small changes
  (the monster dead body disappears after 2 minutes, for professional equipment skill level and noble title requirements are removed..)


Honor fortress - [?? ?? ??]

- Battlefields
  (Translation is too bad to understand anything, this is what I understood. Players get divided into red and blue teams. They have to capture eachothers flags lol. Pretty interesting. You can enter 10 times each day.)

- Elegant rank system
  (Don't ask, hard to understand, its something like exploration system, you receive points in battlefields and take rewards according to your rank.)

- Equipment guidance system
  (Another one with lack of infos. All I could understand its some kind of unified interface for all kind of pimping, weapon retrofitting, gem processor upgrading etc...)

- Many small updates

- Increase the loudspeakers props
  (Not sure whats this exactly, but it has something to do with public chat. I guess its greeting card. We can send smileys and use 80 english characters.)

- Teluo fortress optimization
  (No idea whats Teulo fortress. It has something to do with flags, player equipment etc..)

- Upgrade the siege system
  (Wait time adjusted to 75 seconds before resurrection, increased flag durability, added new materials and refining items to muncipal ministers. Now every muncipal minister sells pure steel, bloods, holy spirits etc...)

  (malta 1,2,3, english channel, north sea, gibraltar instances will drop refining stones like sea witch essences. They will also drop ordinary drill stones for ship dodge and ship accuracy)

- Removed armor improvement and weapon improvement option at guild HQ
  (No one uses it anymore, its useless, its about time to remove it...)

- Improved guards and giant genies from aladins lamp
  (I guess they made them stronger)

- Adjustments to ship retrofitting
  (You can remove retrofits now, without destroying them. So if you have a good retrofit you can pull it out and try new ones, if you get worse bonus, you can put back the old one you had)

- Added new item mall item which restores item bonus
  (You can save your current bonus, if by any chance refining fails a lot and lowers your bonus, you can load the previous bonus you saved)

- New feature for map searching
  (Instead of prompt messages leading you towards treasures, new green arrow will appear above your character pointing in the direction you need to move)

- Removed some outdated items from HS maps and added new ones
  (List too long to write, but its nothing special)

- New description for load
  (When you rollover the load graph in inventory, you will see 2 numbers, your current max load, and your base max load (base without rings and uniforms)




Landing on a beach - [?? ?? ??]

- Introduction of "guild city inter-service battles"
  (looks like upgraded version of guild wars. guild needs at least 10 participants. players from ally guilds can receive invites. there's a level requirement, 600 total skill level and 130 profession level. if a guild wins it receives some original magnetic ores, HI stones, FH refined stones, sea essences. each player receives some medals and points. I still don't have a clue how to use them.)

Done, that's all.

There's many small things I skipped. I thought they are not important and won't affect the gameplay so much.
There's also many things I couldn't find.  For example level 14 ships. I couldn't find them in any patch notes.

Use this as a base reference for big things, like instances, to see how many patches till them.


Lets make this discussion thread. I will write more about new skills and instances later as we get closer to those patches.

If there's anyone who can translate it better than google translator, post here and we will get to work.

Here's some interesting screenshots from Chinese version. I don't know much about them. I don't know when they have been released and I most certanly don't know when is IGG going to release them.




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




Pets.

Some screens of new pets which aren't available in out version yet.


Armor Polar Bear
Level 6 buff skill gives 19 Damage Reduction / 4500 HP.




Owl Colonel
Level 6 buff skill gives 19 Damage Bonus / 4500 HP.
  


Dragon.
Celebrating Chinese Year of the Dragon.





~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




A new ship charm. Firelord. Its Available at Seville Port at some NPC. It need 2 items, I dunno which ones, google does a crappy translation.






________________________________________________________________________________


They also added new charms. Year of the Dragon. There's 2 types. Don't have a screen of them yet, only stats.


Both dragon pet and charm are available from in game events. Some kind of scratch cards event. While scratching there's a chance of getting Year of the Dragon Voucher. Vouchers are exchanged at Tripoli Port for pet or charms.Needs 30 vouchers for one charm and 70 for other, 60 vouchers for pet.


________________________________________________________________________________




Level 14 ship stats. New cannons, new ship charm...




________________________________________________________________________________



Seems they still have binding problems. Crystal shoe bound. I saw someone complaining on forum about it.... lol at least we know its not IGG's fault.






________________________________________________________________________________




Yep, they have problems with fail rate. This guy was complaining about DR crystals, they fail a lot...






________________________________________________________________________________



New compound interface. Apparently everything is upgraded in Seville now.





________________________________________________________________________________


Check at this guy. He has 113 equipment and he's killing Peter on HI. I know many newbies in our version with 130 equipment who still can't do HI. Also check his inventory, 1 CO only. Seems they didn't fix the drop....



________________________________________________________________________________



Year of the rabbit charm. From the back, hopefully I'll find a better image soon.



________________________________________________________________________________



These are the new battle arenas. I think its the capture the flag game, I mentioned above.





________________________________________________________________________________


Level 14 ships base stats comparison




________________________________________________________________________________


Some bug, people dealing sick amount of damage in sea battle....



________________________________________________________________________________

The picture you show about sea with all the sea stones in the ship equipment is about the instances which will be near North Sea and Seville (new instances), real easy instances which can be done with plain 120 sea gears and low level cannons.
Inside this instance drop all these stones for figurehead and jewelry at great rate (at least in Chinese version) and buckshot cannons (player made) until level 10.

One of the other screenshots you post have a white bunny (I call it a bunny) icon in the top left of the screen. This one means the double drop rate, just as it is shown now with double drop card. But in new version (if we ever get) you can buy double drop for 2 hours for 1kk or 10kk (forgot) in Tripoli city.
