The boost in Diplomatic XP for Aid the Planet missions already made me happy, but the new active roster Powers? That's the icing on the cake

Gonna be very interesting... are they ground or space? Or are they mixed?

Need Access To More Backdrops

The added stuff for the Foundry is nice, but could you please add the ability to select some of the "interior" backdrops for Exterior maps?

At the very least if you could give us a space-style backdrop with a large amount of ambient lighting that would help a lot for making custom interiors.

Jupiter Template Issues

There seem to be some issues with the new Jupiter template, namely that it doesn't look like Jupiter at all. The texture of the planet might be fine, but there's such a glaring bloom that it looks nothing like what we see in pictures of the planet. The glare needs to be seriously cut down.

Clearly our rivals have entered into an unholy alliance.

Considering we've got folks complaining about having so many special boffs being uncustomizable, I think this is a step back. Especially since at least some players hold on to this officer fro the entire game.

Now, the most important question of all: Does the Omega Ground Set info still say it's for the Kellerun Infiltrator?
