Both databases are in the client.
Spooky DB is default for new client installations but i don't think the client switched over existing installations. Maybe old DB should be removed until it can be fixed (which will probably never happen but at least we don't have people using broken DB).
Good to know that it's an option in the client but there should a link somewhere on the site as well, it's still linking to the old version with no mention of this new version anywhere (apart from a spooky mode option).
I'll admit that you'll learn of it if you eventually go to the bottom of the page and follow the link to github, but I definitely would have never noticed that link or clicked on it normally...
@deletethis Another issue: the Aeon T3 torpedo plane ("Solace") damage/dps is shown as less than the true number
It says 500 damage x4, which would be 2k damage per pass.
But we know it's around double that because a Solace can one-pass all 4 factions' cruisers
I think it has something to do with the way the weapon is coded, that it has 2 "racks" of missiles or something and the unit DB doesn't understand that it needs to double the damage
Does this mean the database does NOT read the values right from the database files? Were those values entered by hand??
It reads the files but gpg thought it would be really cool if every unit had their own stupid gimmick for how they release 30 dps instead of just giving the unit 30 dps. Every idiosyncrasy they made isn’t accounted for.
The Rackover unitdb is sort of "reset" everytime we restart the server and needs a manual trigger to update to the latest patch. Very annoying. I updated it for now.

The DPS=0 problem seems to be gone. Thanks.
But all other problems seem to be still there.
