The discrepancy happened because the calculation for the maximum plotting distance (which is usually 1000LY but for single-jump modes is based on the ship's actual jump distance) didn't take into account the cargo mass slider that's used by the route plotter
    • Small route plotter optimisation: don't replot the route when toggling a map filter which has all systems enabled

    Powerplay

    • Change powerplay pirates and security ships to only interdict if they will then go on to attack after scanning
    • Changes to legality of attacking ships and Powerplay:

    - Now, we restrict this so that the attacker has to be the same power as the system.
    - Also, we add an alternative to being different superpowers if the attacker is the same power as the system. If the target is of a different power from the attacker (but potentially now of the same superpower), is carrying powerplay cargo for the system's power, and the attacker has cargo scanned the target and knows this, then the attack is legal

    Stations/Ports

    • When targeting a station's location (usually but not limited to when in supercruise heading towards it) show the schematic in the correct orientation. Note that this does not take into account the stations gentle axis-rotation, but will at the very least tell you where the entrance of an orbis/coriolis/etc will be when you drop out
    • Stations can now be placed within rings

    • Fix for Shield Cell bank displaying incorrect ammo amounts
    • Changed the exponent of the curve used for shield resistance from power distributor pips to make it less harsh. 0 and 4 pips are unchanged, middle values now have a higher damage resistance. Specifically changed from 2->0.85, which means that 2 pip has an increased damage resistance from 15%->33% (0 pip stays at 0%, 4 pip stays at 60%). This change means that the TTL (Time To Live) increase of each additional half-pip is approximately the same, rather than almost nothing to start and spiking up towards the end, hopefully allowing players to use setups other than 4-SYS with less penalty. Does not affect CQC ships
    • Fix a muddling of grades on module reinforcements that made them a bit of a newbie trap if you didn't dig deeper - the Es were better than the Ds as they were probably ranked on the wrong primary stat. Increase the health of D class module reinforcements to be the same as what Es currently are (about +140%), and give Es a 10% buff to offset their higher mass
    • Incremental Railgun buffs: Increased hardness piercing to match plasma accelerators so they do a better job of punching up against large ships. Reduced firing heat by approximately 15% (and round off to comfortable numbers)

    Powerplay

    • Now, we restrict this so that the attacker has to be the same power as the system.
    • Also, we add an alternative to being different superpowers if the attacker is the same power as the system. If the target is of a different power from the attacker (but potentially now of the same superpower), is carrying powerplay cargo for the system's power, and the attacker has cargo scanned the target and knows this, then the attack is legal

    Stations/Ports
    • When targeting a station's location (usually but not limited to when in supercruise heading towards it) show the schematic in the correct orientation. Note that this does not take into account the stations gentle axis-rotation, but will at the very least tell you where the entrance of an orbis/coriolis/etc will be when you drop out
    • Stations can now be placed within rings
    • Stations can now be placed within asteroid clusters

    • Fix for Shield Cell bank displaying incorrect ammo amounts
    • Changed the exponent of the curve used for shield resistance from power distributor pips to make it less harsh. 0 and 4 pips are unchanged, middle values now have a higher damage resistance. Specifically changed from 2->0.85, which means that 2 pip has an increased damage resistance from 15%->33% (0 pip stays at 0%, 4 pip stays at 60%). This change means that the TTL (Time To Live) increase of each additional half-pip is approximately the same, rather than almost nothing to start and spiking up towards the end, hopefully allowing players to use setups other than 4-SYS with less penalty. Does not affect CQC ships
    • Fix a muddling of grades on module reinforcements that made them a bit of a newbie trap if you didn't dig deeper - the Es were better than the Ds as they were probably ranked on the wrong primary stat. Increase the health of D class module reinforcements to be the same as what Es currently are (about +140%), and give Es a 10% buff to offset their higher mass
    • Incremental Railgun buffs: Increased hardness piercing to match plasma accelerators so they do a better job of punching up against large ships. Reduced firing heat by approximately 15% (and round off to comfortable numbers)
    • Audio: Weapon impacts now respect whether or not the player is in internal / external cams
    • Audio: Fix missing weapon sounds
    • Audio: Fix missing events for ECM
    • Audio: Fix silent lod1 chaff launcher
    • Audio: Fixed silent shield cell audio
    • Audio: Tweak to the attenuation range of railguns chargeup
    • Audio: Makes some sounds react to amount of ammo remaining in magazine
    • Audio: Fixing silent Class 4 Burst Laser
    • Audio: Fix missing hold events Class 4 Burst Laser
    • Audio: Fix silent LOD1 heatsink launcher
    • Audio: Fixing a weird sound on the Class 3 Pulse Laser (Turreted)
    • Audio: Slight boost to the volume of other shields breaking and reforming.
    • Audio: Fixed issue with plinky-plonky small/medium turreted multicannon
    • Audio: Beam laser tweaks. Turned up hardpoints by 3db
    • Audio: Fix for gimballed weapons stuck to fixed after switching from a fixed weapon fighter
    • Audio: Fix for The Enforcer multicannon sounds skipping when firing


    The following are changes from the last 2.3 beta to live
    • Assorted improvements to make sure the hyperspace timer and intro effects are not skipped for crewmen
    • Fixed a number of minor Holo-Me bugs
    • Fixed a vessel ownership bug when in a Multi-Crew session and inside a fighter, Multi-Crew players should now know exactly which vessel they are in without mistaking any other ships
    • Fixed cargo scanner not working in the correct direction when used in Multi-Crew Gunner
    • Reverted big ship shield/balance changes due to feedback/side effects
    • Tweak to the Fer De Lance outfitting tail camera to better see the Ship Kit tail piece
    • Various localisation changes
    • Various text changes
    This is beautifully formatted and seems to be really well written, best one yet, thanks and well done FD!

    Although, "• Fix issue where srv could still be driven even though"...

    'Even though', what?

    Asp (added second chair for Multi-Crew)

    Wait...you mean that there was no second chair all this time? Than what was that thing directly below our upper chairs, on the lower level?
    I will remain in my Asp explorers forever, because they're fun for me, and I don't see the need to go bigger. Be like me, find what ship's fun for you and stick with it. Don't go big because you feel you need to
    He who resorts to insults in his posts has already lost the argument.

    Thank you Ed. Could you highlight what's new for the final beta, if you can?

    And thank you FDev team for your work!

    Nevermind, I'm blind. It was all he way to the bottom:

    I did not see anything about fixing the Anaconda armour bug. Is that being addressed?

    EDIT; Turns out this bug was fixed in one of the earlier 2.3 Beta versions. Only bad thing is it took so long to get done.
