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.

Bed Logout v1 for PES is now active. Current Design setup: The ‘Log out’ interaction is currently only available if you are the only actor in the ship. When you log out the ship and player are instantly stowed. New Character Repair tool is now active on the PTU website for testing. https://ptu.cloudimperiumgames.com/account/reset (note currently equipped gear will be fully lost when repairing characters.
