In game related news, if you squint carefully at this:
You'll spot a couple of newish snippets, including the new planet visuals with better ore, shadows and such, as well as randomly chosen names and populations that decrease when you mine ore from them.

This includes a Stealth Shield, a Mining Laser and more.
More to come soon - sooner than the previous gap between updates with any luck at all.
