We've been doing a lot of work on the network code and are ready to try out a new model. Give it a try in multiplayer and be sure to let us know if it plays any smoother for you. Feedback is always appreciated. Feel free to discuss it here.

New players will now be greeted upon exiting the Challenges and given a brief tutorial for the Basecamp and some pointers to help them out in the menus. A Comms Mk1 structure will now be required to view chat, and they'll be prompted to get a blueprint from the Shop. Existing players will also need to build a Comms Mk1 before they can access chat!

The Nanoforge has finally broken loose from the Info tab and is now a floating window with it's own chat channel and redesigned UI.

General Updates:
- moved the Nanoforge out of the Info tab and into its own window
- group selected units will now continue to their capture target even if it is captured before they arrive
- new Basecamp and menu tutorials for new players
- a Comms Mk1 structure is now required to use chat
- improvements and optimizations to network code
- Ultimate Parts for Helix added to the Shop: Ultimate Helix Engine, Ultimate Missile Ammo, Ultimate Helix Missile Launcher, and Ultimate Helix Armor

Bug Fixes:
- fix for clicking Basecamp tiles through other menus
- fix for blurry chat badges
- fixed arm not appearing on Neo
- fixed some detached fins on Striker skins
- fix for units in cargo being given the capture command after dropping an infantry unit
- fix for maps not saving correctly

Balance Changes:
- new stats for Satellite Item

Are you getting an error message when trying to login, or does the game just crash/hang?

Stats were made to be identical to the TB's Topper item.

Cool thanks Dissonant. Fix Satellite *and* get an alt for TB's Topper. Two birds with one stone.
