Hello everyone,

Thank you to everyone playing the Desolation Update, especially those taking the time to report any issues they encounter via Zendesk or console crash reporting.

  • Fixed an issue with abandoned Space Stations that prevented players from landing, and could cause a crash when deploying system authority starships.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the game to crash while saving.
  • Fixed a number of issues that could cause the game to crash during loading.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the game to become unresponsive during loading.
