News: Updated combat system being implemented

See that red area over enemy ship? It shows where the player weapon shots (of selected minicannon) will be landing. The updated combat system will allow a plethora of new weapon behaviours and thus also tactical options.

The new system also shows damage to ship hull as damage markings on player ship. Crew can repair these for a hefty amount of metals (see below).
