^^^-- Nice :)

What type of improvements were done to the bortas cloaking device specifically?

does the extention of the idle also apply to foundry editing? historically this was 100% longer than in game idle out

Still no fix for allowing Feds to buy Mark XI antiproton with dilithium? :(

So the feedback Puls is not the flavor of the month anymore after this update?

I thought the PVE que button was going to be moved back to being under the minimap. :confused:

Hmm Dan comes back and these release notes seem to have gotten alot longer. ;)

About the splash for sfa water, is there a sound effect with that?

Oh and any chance the Q anniversary fountain animation for looking in the water can be added to the emotes list, i dunno but i think it would be hilarious using it in water enabled maps like sfa. :)

Edit - Hmm no notice of removing the spam messages for the galors it seems?

Maybe, maybe not. I know reports and release notes used to be longer like this when he used to be around before. And if you check the previous release notes for say the last week or so, they were much smaller. ;)
