Update v1.1000 - Get 'em off my sky

Ahoy captains!

We+re continuing our work on the combat AI and on new content in general, but we thought it might be a good idea to release these fixes and changes to you ladies and gentlemen to have a smoother experience.

The highlight this time are fighters. More specifically, NPCs now properly launch and use fighters. We've automatically implemented a safety-switch so this only becomes apparent after you reach level 10. Just to make sure you have a chance and not get obliterated by the first enemy fighter wing ;).

The second thing to mention is the ability to become neutral/friendly with all factions. This comes with a limitation however! But only for now. This mechanic is apparent for now only if you start a NEW freeroam game. The next update should bring proper script checks and events to make the necessary changes in existing save files (both freeroam and campaign).

Enjoy!
