June 3, 2015
Hello, starship captains! Today's update brings two big changes: Loadout Options and Ship Hull Upgrades.
The first allows you access to any ship systems and weapon technology that is considered "off the shelf" at your location. At nearly any home world that offers trade, you can click on a system or weapon slot on your ship and see what loadout options are available. The selection depends on the world, and changes over time as each race develops new technology. You may need to sell an item or a few to earn credit before you can take advantage of this. (Tip: if you haven't found any better drives after a while, check back at Hope!)
Ship hulls can be upgraded at the ship's origin world - Hope for Terran ships, Loryx for the Zorg, and so on. Simply go to the home world and select your ship to see if upgrades are available. Larger ships like frigates and destroyers become available as time passes - as well as new "advanced" versions of Terran military ships with additional rear-firing weapon mounts. These upgrades are also paid for by store credit, so bring something to trade!
