This one is a whole big pile of polish for 7.0 and the VotM expansion.
– Working with the ship design screen should be easier with shift-click support for copying a module from one slot to one or more others, and the logic to auto-upgrade your champion designs when you unlock a higher-mark usable module should save a lot of time too.
– You can now set FRD Engineers and FRD Remains Rebuilders separately, and the behavior of “endpoint” redirector posts and multi-planet-FRD (for engineers, rebuilders, and other stuff with “assist” targets) has been improved in general.
– Fixed some bugs interfering with carrier auto-deployment. They should now be much more reliably forthcoming.
– Fixed a bug that was letting the hunter plot spawn way more H/Ks and stuff over time due to packing some away in carriers. Such a curious malfunction, and I’m sure the AI will be very happy to have it fixed. Wouldn’t want to overrun the galaxy with a few hundred free Hunter/Killers, after all.
– Fixed a ton of text issues kindly reported by the community. One was actually not just a textual problem: the Sledgehammer AI type has really been effectively “vanilla” for… a really long time :) But it’s been given a special of less-frequent-but-heavier waves now.
This is a standard update that you can download through the in-game updater itself, if you already have 4.000 or later.
