Update 111 : Originally posted May 22
Greetings everybody, this is Flavien, taking over Keith for this week’s update. With a little less than a month left before alpha is out, we are working hard on the gameplay loop(s) and adding objectives such as destructible stations to the game. Last week, patch 0.2.8.1 introduced free-aiming turrets on capital ships. This part of the code was a dependency to make static stations and bases defenses fully functional. The art team is working on new station modules and sockets so that we can place defense turrets around locations... Read the Rest of Weekly Update 111 here on our forums

Update 114 : Originally posted June 10
Well, it’s been one heck of a week. For starters we’re launching the Alpha this coming Friday, June 15th which is less than a week away! The whole team has been working hard to get everything ready for the big release. I’m not going to get into too many details regarding gameplay changes as we want to save those for after the Alpha is out, but we’ve released a new version of our installation runtime and we’re working on updating our website...
