    Hey guys,

    Great news! There is another 2.2 beta update coming in this morning.

    The Beta servers will be going down in a few minutes at 10:00 BST and we will expect them to be back up within a couple of hours.

    Here's a nice juicy change log while you wait.

    - Various text fixes
    - Award combat rank progression when destroying NPCs from no particular faction

    Fighters

    - Added in Gimballed versions of the Fighter Weapons so that the lasers don't look so wrong
    - Following NPC crew oddities (When NPC crew is flying a player's ship) fixed:
    - If MC turrets are fitted and set to Target Only, the combat AI cannot fire them
    - Can only use one missile launcher, even if two are fitted
    - Missiles are fired at long range and are wasted
    - AI doesn't use boost to chase and kill targets, instead lets them get away
    - When out of ammo, AI ship should drop back into formation
    - Player ships with just missiles won't fight
    - After requesting docking, all other order hotkeys are ignored
    - AI crew in mothership will not attack targets if they have non combat modules deployed before switching to fighter fixed
    - Added clearer message to indicate that the players fighter will be destroyed when they FSD away
    - Moved empire fighters hit spheres for the weapons even further forward to help in hitting them
    - Use numbers rather than bars for displaying fighter stats
    - Wanted NPC has clean fighter fixed

    - Fix not being able to deploy an SRV or Fighter after resurrecting
    - Fix NPC Crew not increasing their total kill count when assisting with destroying NPC and Player ships too low level to award combat rank progression


    Weapons

    - We think heat attacks have been reduced a little too far, and need a very conservative buff:
    - Diminishing returns for heat now limit at 100% (up from 95% in previous beta)
    - Damage penalty for Thermal shock reduced to 20% (from 25%)
    - ECM needs some slight tweaks:
    - ECM will now fire when hardpoints are not deployed
    - ECM charge time increased to 3 seconds (currently 2 in beta, 4 in live)
    - Hatch Breaker limpets are also having heir acceleration multiplier turned up significantly. For comparison firing at a target 1km away and with both ships matching speed the travel time has gone from roughly 10 seconds down to 5.5
    - Improved flight speed and hacking time of all hatch breaker limpets
    - Removed strange hatch malfunction behaviour where you could cancel it by toggling power. Hatch breaker limpets and general 'your hatch got damaged' hatch malfunctions can no longer be cancelled
    - Slight reduction to the effectiveness of Incendiary rounds for Multicannons:
    - Remove the hidden 20% kinetic damage that was left over
    - Reduce the fire rate penalty from -10% to -5%
    - Net effect is that the DPS has gone down by 4% vs shields and 15% vs hull (if unmodified), leaving the weapon strong but a slightly clearer tradeoff.

    Outfitting/Shipyard

    - Process transaction cost correctly when fetching or selling a remote module
    - UI was being unlocked before hardpoint animation was complete. This should now be fixed

    - Made class icon visible, resized the location icon to its, added space between icons and text, tinted transit text to red
    - Fixed keeping hold of buyback items once we've bought them back
    - Icons resized and centred, added missing class and rating, resized warning icon and added spacing between it and text
    - Prevented focus from being lost when pressing Right on the read more section of the module transfer
    - The Store [X/X] button is selectable when all 30 slots are full but no modules in the tree are selected
    - Ship loadout doesn't update after multiple swaps fixed
    - Updated icon positioning and colouring in the Inventory Browser Screen
    - Added functionality to the 'Store Multiple Popup', to support pressing 'UI BACK'

    Will that stop the docking computer from boosting like crazy when docking at a planetary station?

    Yep, now I want the option to show/hide them. Well, I can always hide the hud completely with ctrl-alt-g or whatever the shortcut is but it's not the same ^^'

    Heheh - I prefer the vertical bars. Soooo much better than Space Sleet, IMO.
