       Shipyard:
           Shipyard has been overhauled to stand alone as an independent tech path with multiple tiers of purchasable ship types.
           Gunships (enh) and Corvettes (adv) function as the standard for combat craft, optimized for operation with turrets in tight packs.
           Frigates (enh) and Cruisers (adv) function as the standard for base-killing craft.
           Attack Carriers (enh) and Assault Ships (adv) function as the standard for tactical support craft. Attack Carriers, however, are not a prerequisite for assault ships.
           All ships available at the first tier are available for a research cost of 5,000 credits. Second tier are 7,500 credits. Belters retains appropriate cost reductions.

   Omicron Hive:

           Yield increased to 1.1
           Essentially the same perk as was done in the previous version. However, this should correct a display issue caused by the cost reduction.

XC 03

[codebox] General Changes:

   Treasure sets:
       All items aside from powerups have been removed from the treasures list. All technology items must now be purchased regardless of server treasure settings. This should push teams to spend more money during the enhanced tech levels of a game and subsequently push advanced tech back by a reasonable amount. This should also make balancing subsequent releases easier as, without the random factor to acquiring tech and money, it is far easier to measure and adjust costs for each tech path.
   Damage classes:
       DM02 (Fighter gats) damage modifier vs. Utility hull reduced to .37 from .5.
       This reflects the greater ease with which fighters can engage targets due to their overall increased speed in this version, combined with the forward presence offered by carriers. Missile damage remains unchanged. While this negatively impact’s a scout’s ability to kill a miner, situations that allow scouts to do so are rarely, if ever, a factor in coordinated team play.
   Garrison:
       Lt Booster 1/2:
           Renamed to Cruise Booster 1/2.
           Cruise Booster 1 is still available in Garrison for Gigacorp and TF.
           Cruise Booster 2 is now in Supremacy.
       Nanite 2:
           Moved to standard Garrison from Starbase.
       Small Shield 1:
           Signature reduced to .3 [.5]
       Small Shield 2:
           Signature reduced to .25 [.5]
       Small Shield 3:
           Signature reduced to .25 [.5]
       Seeker 2:
           Cost reduced to $2500
       Quickfire 2:
           Moved to basic Supremacy.
       Quickfire 3:
           Moved to advanced Supremacy.
   Supremacy:
       Boosters have been revamped. Cruise Booster is now the standard booster exclusive to fighters, while standard boosters have been moved to Expansion. This will give Supremacy a unique booster development path and also improve their overall speed enough so that fighters through all stages of the game have significantly less trouble dealing with pesky scouts and are better able to engage targets at range. This change amounts to a 50-80mps gain on accessible top-end booster speed depending on the level of fighter and a faction’s inherent speed attribute. They will, however, still remain slower and far less maneuverable than the superior close-combat craft, Interceptors.
       All levels of fighters:
           Returned to DN 00.04.60 scale levels.
           Mass reduced to 24 [36]
           Thrust reduced to 550 [900]
       Advanced Fighters:
           Ripcord time increased to 8.5 seconds [7]
       EWS Probe 2:
           Cost reduced to $2500
       Seeker 3:
           Cost reduced to $2500
       Galvonic Blaster:
           Mass increased to 6 [1]
           Fighters engaging in galving a base should be no more maneuverable than they were before.
       XRM/XRP AB 1:
           Damage increased to 120 [78]
           (Returned to DN 00.04.60 value)
       XRM/XRP AB 2:
           Damage increased to 150 [97.5]
           (Returned to DN 00.04.60 value)
   Expansion:
       Booster 3:
           Thrust reduced to 950 [1125]
       Interceptors:
           Fuel reduced to 14 [15]
       Hvy Interceptors:
           Fuel reduced to 14 [15]
       Troop Transports:
           Speed reduced to 60 [75]
           Signature increased to 200 [100]
           Troop Transports can now mount EMP missiles at one missile per rack.

Belters:

   General:
       Sanctuaries:
           Scan range reduced to 0.
           Signature reduced to .25. [.75]
       Scouts:
           Mass reduced to 48
           Fuel reduced to 6 [8]
       Adv scouts:
           Mass reduced to 48
           Fuel reduced to 8 [10]
       Hvy scouts:
           Mass reduced to 48 [60]
           Fuel reduced to 10 [15]
       Bombers:
           Boosters removed.
       Hvy Bombers:
           Boosters removed.
       Omni Fighters:
           Mass reduced to 34 [44]
           Thrust reduced to 550 [1024]
           Omni Fighters should handle somewhere between a fighter and an interceptor, and should be well worth the price of research and $500 per ship. In addition, Cruise Booster 3 should be better than Booster 1 and 2, but worse than Booster 3.

Bios:

   General Changes:
       Faction attributes:
           Payday reduction reverted.
       Enh and Adv fighters:
           Mass set at 22 to retain some of their agility advantage.

Dreghklar:

   General Changes:
       Enhanced fighters:
           Speed set at 95 [100] (modified to 114 after faction GA)
           Dreg fighters were found to be far too fast relative to other faction’s fighters due to their lack of an acceleration disadvantage. Still faster, smaller margin.
       Adv fighters:
           Speed set at 110 [120] (modified to 132 after faction GA)
           Dreg fighters were found to be far too fast relative to other faction’s fighters due to their lack of an acceleration disadvantage. Still faster, smaller margin.
       All levels of interceptors:
           Scale increased to 12 [10.8]
           With greater access to superior booster technology, Dreg interceptors may prove too difficult to kill without a scale increase.
   

Iron Coalition:

   General Changes:
       Rescue Probe:
           Scan range reduced to 0.

           PW Damage increased to 1.05 [1]
           Cost reduced to .9 [1]
           Tech base upgrade costs increased to keep them at roughly $25,000.

           Ripcost increased to 1200 [1000]

           Ripcost increased to 900 [800]
       Heavy Scouts:

       All levels of fighters:

   General changes:
       Beacons:
           Scan range reduced to 0.
           Signature increased to .1 [.05]
       All levels of fighters:
