Text

  • New warp effect.
  • New ship death explosion sound and visual effects.

Death effect

  • Asteroids are now destructible although they don't drop any ore yet.
  • Arrows that point towards objects of interest/hostiles if the said object is nearby and not on
  • screen.

Changes:

  • Mostly re-done the chase camera mode, should be a lot easier to make fine adjustments to your heading, fly straight and aim.
  • Info display now opens on click instead of mouse hover.

Fixes:

  • Space stations now spin around their center of mass.
  • Loading a ship without anything selected no longer changes your ship into a command pod.
  • Going to warp with engines turned on doesn't waste 2x power anymore.
  • Small fixes.
