Release Notes: "Very High" resolution texture settings are now included and are intended for players with 256MB or more of video memory. These new textures provide fine detail to some of the bumpier asteroids and the like. Additionally, a new "Re-normalize Normal Maps" option allows additional fidelity at a cost of extended load time.
Release Notes: Players may now "Forgive" PvP kills in faction-standing loss situations. The "Sell Selected" button in the Commodities Sell tab was changed to "Sell Selected...". The size of speed/energy/distance HUD indicators was corrected for wide-screen modes. The aspect of the loading screen and startup splash screen was corrected for wide-screen modes. A trade xp exploit was fixed. An interface resolution bug was fixed. The ship buyback price display when not all items were bought back was corrected.
Release Notes: The universe was expanded to 13 charted sectors. Uncharted sectors also exist (not marked on the map or the HUD). Ships have been completely rebalanced. Weapons configurability has been greatly expanded. Weapons now exist either as "Small" or "Large" addons, which may be configured into "Small" or "Large" addon ports. Weapon firing group configurations allow any firing combination. The AI system has been completely revamped. New trade items and weapons were added. Many other minor changes, optimizations, and improvements were also made.
