Patchnotes via Steam Community

This update adds a completely reworked space station, it now spawns a lot closer to the capital ships and features 2 hangars that are always open as well as a brand new interior. Inside you can find fighter purchasing stations similar to the ones on the capital ships, and a capture point that allows your team to gain twice as many resource points while controlling it. To play on a map with the new space station, make sure to select the "Station" battle size!


The exterior of the new space station will reflect who currently controls it, with the lights changing between red, white (undecided), and blue. You can also dock a frigate at the lower end of the space station now, allowing you to basically respawn in the space station and defend it or spawn smaller fighters from there. You can now also choose to send B2 Attack Droids to the space station instead of the enemy ship, they will try to take control over the capture point and get rid of any enemies inside. The droids also received multiple improvements, for example, they are much smarter at dealing with enemies hiding/peaking from behind cover.

But be aware that the enemy Tactical Droid can send droids to the space station as well to try and take control over it. Speaking of the tactical droids, numerous changes have been made to the frigates Tactical Droid to give him a respawn time, which makes it much less frustrating to hijack enemy frigates than before, when he would respawn instantly.

There is also a new respawn system in the game now, in earlier versions you always respawned on the last friendly ship you were on, now you can choose between your capital ship and your frigate (if it exists), allowing you to use the frigate as a mobile spawn station for your team to try and take control over the enemy capital ship or the new space station while being docked to them.

The weapons also received some changes, you now spawn with the correct weapon when changing your class in the ship customization phase, and the pistol and the revolver deal a bit more damage now, with the pistols fire rate also being increased slightly. This means they will only have 10% lower damage per second than the rifle or SMG, instead of being 20-30% worse.

Additionally, lots of improvements and bug fixes are included in this update, you can check those out in the full changelog below. Most notably, keybindings now accept "." and "," keys, the "invert y-axis" option should now save correctly, fighter purchasing stations should work more reliably, and the windows of your ship should no longer look weird when flying around with your drone.

If you experience any issues or have any kind of feedback, please let me know!
