Current Fixes.txt:

v.1.0084 - February 11, 2004
-Fixed glitch with artifact retrieval that prevented InSight from gaining full use of range extension.

-Cut off function of the Simulator button in stations while a ship is being equipped or loaded with cargo.
-Added PR benefit for downing a sentient conflux, if in factional space, from the faction being defended.
-Some upgrades were made to defense droid stats; an inadvertent low setting in the Octavian Type 1 droid's armor, probably longstanding, was corrected.
-TRI ship stats (Shuttle and Enforcer) adjusted to conform more closely to the flight characteristics of factional ships.
-Assigned a triple-faction (S/O/Q) PR penalty for downing an official TRI ship (Shuttle, Enforcer).
-Beacon credit awards were adjusted slightly upward. To limit exploitation, beacons will now pay any docked pilot as though that pilot were registered Civ.

-Fixed a problem preventing successful use in sequence of more than one PWD100 on a ship.
-Adjusted hardpoints on Shuttles and Large Shuttles to reflect the availability of size 1 guided missiles.
-Implemented a significant change to missile flight code that should improve overall accuracy.
-Made an adjustment to missile collision processing code.
-Added conflux to the Target Last Attacker feature.
-Altered logout-in-flight code to terminate gate-invulnerability as soon as a pilot disconnects.
-Altered logout-in-flight code so that discoed pilots are vulnerable to piracy, as originally intended.

-Corrected longstanding problem where rockets would set aggressor flag if any pilot was targetted on radar even when fired nowhere near that pilot.
-Corrected longstanding problem where observers would not see correct guided missile path if fired at a static object, such as an infestation.
-Corrected longstanding problem with rockets that caused observers to see them travel in space and on radar at a heading 90 degrees off actual target.
-Fixed cosmetic problem with Cascade shield description text overrun.
-Adjusted all missile stats significantly, in part to balance around new tracking code, in part to make missiles generally more useful and interesting.

-Missile hardpoint sizes were added to all ships, in preparation for missile changes in an upcoming patch.

-A small adjustment was made to a new GM event command.
-Changed /home functionality such that a pilot's home is no longer cleared by faction dock.
-Added the /homeoff command to clear a pilot's home voluntarily. After using /homeoff, a pilot who dies will respawn at his last home faction dock point.

-Adjusted InSight hit "splash" graphic size upward to correct old reports that the effect was too small.

only one thing i care about: kicking "helpful" GM's off :help into :chat so the camping sychophants migrate out of HELP - course, it's always somebody else or the other server or or or...blah blah. fuck, just do it. (eu server's the same)
    they're all so completely ignorant of what exactly entails "help" and what entails lurking around to be the first to kiss GM arse
And as for the flux dumps and that myth of the "escort career" for noobs and miners just waiting to blossom? or that old tired line of, "well, look at the name for ep2"...lower the fuckin dumps in core sectors to ZERO and move the jellyfish to spawn in adjacent sectors to core. CAPICHE?!?!

P.S. thanks for the update, hickypoo. XOXOX

Change those two SIMPLE FUCKING THINGS and i guarrantee netdevil and mightygames might start growing their playerbase instead of the "school of hard knocks" BULLSHIT customer service they have now.

Right now it seems that there are a ton of ol' timers coming back into JG:US. Good or bad is still debatable as all of them have to re-learn how to fly the ships that have changed. Everyone that was going for sol because it was uber are now quant.

I've seen GM_Khronos in :chat, and not sure if anyone is lurking in :help. Although the other day someone said they were hitting on a girl in :help...heh...what they don't know... insane <3 8P

That's because Istvan and the test pilots are incredibly committed to making things better. Muffy, you should come play more instead of talking to yourself here. :E
