Hotfix 1.4.2b Notes

Dreadnought is getting closer and closer to its open beta status, but before we finally get to that point there are still some slight adjustments to be made.

What does this patch bring to the game you might ask? Most importantly it gives us two very important fixes that should make everyone happy:

1. It corrects the Credit system to the way that it was originally designed. The payout for in-game actions will now adjust depending on the Tier of the ship being used (this will net more Credits earned during gameplay).

2. It fixes the server stability issue that we faced during the last couple of weeks.

It also adds something that some of you have been asking about, for a long time - a bit more lore to the game. Ship manufacturer descriptions have been shown a lot of love in this first narrative pass.
Besides that it’s mostly a “behind the scenes” patch that squashes a fair amount pesky bugs and polishes the game. At the same time 1.4.2 sets the stage for more complicated changes to the game, while making the whole experience a lot more enjoyable on a day-to-day basis.

Below you will find a list of the current bug fixes.
