The community team behind Neocron’s current development should be lauded for how much it works to both keep the game operating and improve upon the sci-fi MMO. Case in point, this week the crew pushed out the Milky Ren update (or as the tech nerds like to call it, Update NE 2.3.242-343).
The patch has a lot of little additions and changes, although there are a few items that stand out from the rest. Several systems and areas have been revamped, including the job center and Tech Haven sectors. Players running through the latter will need to be on their toes, as there are now more security turrets and enemy ‘bots.
Other additions to the patch include a new Fallen Angel apartment, changes in music, a new Hacknet dungeon, improved client stability, and some better textures and decals.
