Modding:

  1. New ship AI BOARDING_MANAGER. Manages NPC boarders.
  2. Made it easier to start the game with your own custom ship:  For that open the event file D31 events.xml.  There in the event SPAWN_D31, change SPAWN_FALCON to SPAWN_CUSTOM_FALCON. Then in the SPAWN_CUSTOM_FALCON event change ship_model="FALCON" to your custom model.
  3. In the modify ship event you can now: (de)charge_system_model,  (de)charge_system_type,  (de)charge_cloak,  install_system_model_direct - (allows you you specify where to install the system)

Rebalancing:

  1. Traders now have more stock.
  2. Storm hazard now also damage systems and can kill mobs in open space.

Bug fixes:

  1. A little bit more refactoring to win in the Lag war. In bigger screen resolutions - npcs might move with a stutter. Still working on improving this.
  2. Other small bug fixes here and there.
