- Cut down the ECM on the Advanced Worker to 2.
- Fixed the Advanced Drone so that it spawns properly now.
- Reduced the strength of the EMP cannon.
- AI ships & cargo items will no longer display in the navigational contacts display.
- Trail Enhancements now have a very small chance of dropping from Dreads and Stations instead of just from Elite AI.
- Changed defense bases. All factions now have six bases:
• PD I and II are geared toward shooting down bombs and are heavy on beams but weak on all else.
• Defense I and II are a mixed type with some beams and some anti-ship armaments.
• Offense I and II have a beam or two but focus most of their energies on deterring or damaging approaching ships.
* Note: Building names vary by faction.
- Removed orbit speeds.
- Free play now enabled - All players can rank up to 1st rear admiral. In order to gain higher ranks, players will need to subscribe.
