Version 2.728 is now available for download. As usual, the installer can also be used to update older versions of the game. It can be downloaded here:
http://www.starwraith.com/evochronmerce ... nloads.htm

This update includes the following improvements/fixes:

- Gun turret hull armor indicator now changes color based on damage level.
- Control axis mapping system updated to better support inertial thruster invert selection on systems with multiple devices.
- Alt key option added for weapon and shield energy management selection for quickly setting to maximum/minimum levels.
- Text notification now displayed in the message log when payment is received from a fleet ship after completing a mining cycle.
- Nav map point selection now applies two sector coordinate values relative to map orientation, X and Z for top view, X and Y for rear view.
- When zooming in on the nav map in rear view mode, maplog waypoints could block left click nav point selection, now fixed.
- When transitioning from terrain walker back to spaceship, engine sounds might not restart properly, now fixed.
- Custom music files above group level 3 may not load correctly under certain folder conditions, now fixed.
- Several minor bug fixes.

Thank you, Sir ! If I may suggest - take a good, long break. The lead-up to this one's been a rough, bumpy road. You know you've more than well earned the time away. :)

While playing on Starbuck's G1 server: A new had run out of fuel in Talison Conflict. It was easy enough to catch him using the "Form" option but, try as I would, I couldn't get any fuel to him. His side of the F4 window never displayed the fuel.

Simulated Towing: On a brighter note, we did solve the problem by having the new guy jump into my turret gunner position. I then jumped to the trade station in Talison Conflict and had him disconnect. When he did, his jumped back into his ship ... at the station. And refueled on his own.

I thought that when you jump out of the sector, you lose your turret friend.

:cool: Yes, you do. So, if you decide to play "tow truck" then bring along either a Build Constructor or a Deploy Constructor.

Nice! Thanks Vice - although the server program keeps saying an update is available and exits, even after installing the latest one from the site.

Has thw server program not been updated yet?

It should be ok now. A value check was incorrectly applied to the server.
