So, i've spent the last few months trying to strong arm the steam matchmaking and server system into doing the multiplayer i want, to no effect. I'm currently looking at different multiplayer hosting options and will let you know what happens there.
During that time I've changed the back end for the missions system, you no longer get random missions nor will you get missions that you have cleared before. So that's neat.
Knockout has been removed! Which makes the game infinitely less annoying to play. Also in the quality of life front, I've changed how the oculus menu selections works so that its not so annoying.
I've changed how the legal system works. So instead of having to constantly vote on laws, you can set what party you want to have majority control. All of the legal parameters are determined by the party control. It's not set by the majority party but instead an average of all the parties policies based on their percent control. I'm still fixing how mission completion affects voting percentage but should have that working soon.
Sorry for the lack of patches recently, I was distracted with trying to get the multiplayer working correctly. I'll be focusing on expanding the single player content and mission variety in the short term.
