Long time no see everyone! The long absence was unfortunate, but has given the team plenty of time to fine tune this update for you all. And without further ado, here are all the changes coming with this update!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

New skirmish maps:

Space -

Yavin Conflict, Terra Nova, Coruscant Siege, Shipyards of Sluis, Melting point, Arrival at Helska, 3 Way tie, Vergesso Blitz, Korriban Incursion.

Land-

Jakku wastes, Gungan grasslands, Mustafar bastion, Kamino offensive.

I hope to recreate this location in a very large skirmish map, you guys in?

Working on making a large skirmish map based off of this Jakku location. You guys hyped?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bug Fixes:

- Command points not capturing, being missing, or not giving extra pop cap.

- Aeten II having an infinite loading screen along with several other minor planets.

- Certain ground maps having props or structures missing.

-Indigineous units not attacking correctly or only working for one faction.

- Many, many and I mean MANY text and icon fixes.

- Multiple small bug fixes, many non-gamebreaking.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Gameplay changes:

- Comm satellites must be built if you wish to purchase and use combat upgrades, Heroes, and unique units.

- Shipyards must be built in order to begin production of the assosciated unit. (Eg: Frigate shipyard in order to build corvettes and frigates, Cruiser/Destroyer yard in order to build destroyers and light capitals, Capital shipyards to build true capital ships, and finally Massive shipyards in order to produce super units.) Capital and Massive shipyards can only be constructed on certain worlds, like Mon Calamari or Fondor.

Standard frigate shipyard with an Immobilizer and nebulon docked.

Example of on the new shipyards coming with this update.

- Certain units require a named Hero or planet to be constructed. (This part is up for you guys to discover. ;D) And other units cannot be built, they are all you get of that type of unit. (Think outdated ships and units, or minor heroes.)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Balance Changes:

- All Capital ships have had their hardpoints and damage values changed to match each other as well as to match established lore.

- Multiple units have had their weapons or hardpoints changed. (EG: AT-STs, Rejuvenators, Victory SDs...)

- All factions have had their resource structure costs and upgrades match, as well as having identical income values.

- Weapon and Armor types have been changed to better unify weapon and vehicle types.

- Mandalorian starbase has had its 'superweapon' removed, and instead now has the cannon autofire when unlocked. Range and damaged has been changed accordingly.

- All factions now have the same pop cap.

- Pirate and neutral factions have had their units and damage scaled accordingly.

Just a small glimpse of what the neutral planets might have to ruin your day.

Just a glimpse of what you might encounter on neutral worlds. And they're going to ruin your day.

I'm sorry, I'm unfamiliar with creating language packs. If I could do it, I would for sure. I can only speak English and Mandarin, and I don't trust automated translations for something like this.

Thanks for letting me know, I'll look into it and see if it's able to be replicated. Worst case it's more than likely a unit or planet missing from one of the files.
