    Additional Information

    Bug Fixes and improvements

    • Various bug fixes and improvements have been made

    Known Issues

    • The teleporter at Celeste Harbor Military HQ is experiencing technical difficulties.
      The hitbox on the Pandi is undergoing some improvements.
    • If for some reason you're trying to hurt the Pandi pup beware that it likes to hide underground.
    • Textures missing on the Monura Female.
    • The New Arrival Hangar's force field is still in need of some minor adjustments to allow friendly ships to enter.
    • The IFN are still investigating all these highly effective silencers that been attached to a large amount of weapons. They assure everyone that the sound issue has no effect on the weapons output and that the firepower is as effective as expected from both Herman and other approved weapon producers. (other sound effects are also being worked on)

    Does not affect your ability to do it solo. Just changes from having to loot one chest at the end to looting each mob as you kill it.

    That was the beauty of the Aakas. Not sure if this was smart move.

    ?! But you have to make a team to enter - or not? So no more solo???!!

    Beside - it does suck that they removed the chest. I have to agree that this was indeed the beauty of Akas....

    I read it the same way as Bear. Since you can't enter Aakas while not being in a team and you can't loot anything while being alone in team that would mean no more solo Aakas, bit of a shame really...

    I just checked.
    For Akas you still need to be in a Team - nothing changed. This means i will / can´t do any more Akas. That is really sad.

    Do you have to stay in the team once you have entered? Perhaps you can disband the team as soon as you are in.

    aakas mobs are shared loot mobs, therefore can be shot and looted by anyone regarless of their team status. ie. you can do them solo.

    You can abandon the team once inside the instance. The reason for the team setting is to ensure people can't sneak into the instance that you opened.
    We have had a number of cases where people drop out/crash during an instance and therefore never get to loot the chest. With this change it doesn't change the loot from the instance, it just means you receive it in increments as you progress so you don't lose out if you crash. Soooo, it actually means the instances are much more friendly to be done solo than they were before.
