Features and changes
- A new orbit defense building has been added. It will automatically fire at enemy ships in a planet’s orbit and any invasion force heading to the planet’s surface (assault troops in drop-capsules). New players will start with one on their home planets, existing players can research and construct them. More info to come in a follow-up blog post.
- Pirates have been modified in line with community feedback: new players will be attacked less and see less of their fleets; while pirate spawning, movement and behavior have all been improved.
- Icons for deep mining technologies have been updated.
