The Stardock Refinery has been part ASL for over a year, though it did not have a specific part in the story line. It is very important in the upcoming Chapter 3 - Avar story. The system has always been functional but needed some update. This week adds mouse-over pop-ups that explain the resources required to refine each material. Some other text, graphics, and alignment in the Refinery screen have also been updated to make it more usable. An issue was also fixed in last week's systems control update where the Starboard Aft slot pop-up wasn't working.
Behind the southern locked gate in Osti:
All Avar dialog has been completed and is ready for import. The Ecxos planetary station can now be built and fully equipped. Work is currently focused on the Ecxos projector, which will send a ship to any star system in a single jump, or recall the ship from any system back to the Ecxos.
