Note: This patch does not contain all of the intended features, which will be added iteratively to the notes as they become available. Additionally, some features may be implemented in a partial state and as such are not ready for testing. When those features reach a playable state they will be detailed on the notes and added to the “Testing Focus”. Please issue council all issues related to those in testing focus and in general gameplay.

Current cloud tech is still in active development and not yet final. There’s ongoing work on SDF occlusion which should help alleviate the graphical artifacting (visual dots in the clouds). Additionally, we are working towards having local VFX for the clouds (similar to the gas clouds around rest stops) which will make a big difference in overall quality.

Testing Focus

  • Crusader
  • Orison Landing Zone
  • Law System v2: Surrender
  • Power Management v2 (Capacitor Gameplay)
  • Missile Operator Mode
  • Radar, Scanning, and Ping T0

Feature Updates


  • Further Performance Optimizations and polish pass on Orison Landing zone LODs, assets, and lighting


Ongoing Combat and Missile Operator mode balance and polish pass

  • We have done further core tuning for ships. Changed default decoupled keybind to Left Alt+C. Weakened energy cannons so that energy repeaters and energy cannons now have the same DPS with ballistic cannon damage being higher. Energy Cannons now have a higher ammo efficiency with faster regen and more ammo capacity to better fit their intended target role. Ballistic repeater / gatling damage reduced. Slightly buffed the Size 1 shield HP and regen. Increased the energy ammo count for all multirole and heavy fighters. Increased the Blade’s health. Removed 1 shield from Saber, 85x, and Razor. Updated buccaneer to bubble shield. Missile Rebalance, reduced rotation and general performance. Changed IR counter measure values, so they are now effective against IR Missiles.

Radar and Scanning polish pass

  • Updated the ship ping and blob shaders and visuals. Added scanning display hints.
