New Features

Gameplay

Ship and Ship Components Inventory Updates

Major overhaul of the ship personal inventory storage to allow for ship components to be stored and transported inside ships. Increased the capacity of Landing zone storage from 100 SCU to 1000 SCU. Added inventory size values to all purchasable ship items along with volume and dimensions which will require certain size ships to transport larger size components that wouldn’t normally fit inside the smaller ships. Updated all ships to have more internal storage to accommodate this change. Added inventory filters for components.

Feature Updates

Gameplay

Shield Face Balance Pass

Converted heavy fighter and larger ships with size 2 shields to have front-back shield faces instead of bubble shields

Death Animation Polish Pass

Replaced player death animations that were too long and gave the illusion that players were still standing when already downed. This only affects player death animations and not AI

Arena Commander Scoring Polish

Removed “Part Detached Score” award until we can find a better solution to players getting unintended score when destroying an enemy ship. Restored remaining score pool being distributed among attackers on death. Fixed scoring of some ships that were not setup.
