    GET YOUR WARPAINT ON


    The people of the 34th century are as diverse as the stars they travel between. These markings allow you to add your own flair to your Commander, no matter what your chosen path.

    This week, three band new packs have arrived in the shape of the Totemic Tattoo Pack, Tribal War Paint Pack, and the Cyber Tattoo Pack. Choose one perfect for your Commander.













    TIME TO ASCEND

    Have you basked today? Give your inferiors and enemies a sight to behold with an Ascendant flight suit, now available in blue, white, red and black.

    Although aesthetics may differ, the majority of flight suits in human-occupied space conform to a standard design. Made to keep the wearer protected from the harsh vacuum and extreme temperatures of space, the standard flight suit features a retractable full-face helmet to be automatically deployed in the event of a sudden loss of atmospheric pressure. As well as being practical and durable, the flight suit may also show rank insignia or other personal flair.

    GALACTIC LEADERS ADDRESS THARGOID RETURN

     

    The leaders of the major powers have responded to news that the Unknown Ships are Thargoid vessels. Federal President Zachary Hudson issued a forthright statement, citing reports of Federal ships being attacked by Thargoid vessels, but Emperor Arissa Lavigny-Duval and Alliance Prime Minister Edmund Mahon gave more measured responses.









    COLONIA EXPANSION INITIATIVE

    As the Colonia community continues to grow, the Junkyard Dogs has placed an open order for commodities to support another wave of expansion. A spokesperson for the organisation confirmed the materials would be used to construct new outposts in the region.

    SUPERPOWER CAMPAIGNS END

    The galactic community has responded positively to requests from the Empire and the Federation for construction materials. The commodities will be used to bolster the superpowers’ assets in the Pleiades star cluster.









    COLONIA POPULATION BOOM


    The latest census data from Colonia indicates that the system has seen a massive influx of immigrants in recent weeks. The spike follows the introduction of a migration subsidy from the Colonia Council, which has made it much cheaper for immigrants to reach Colonia.

    The link to the Patch 2.3.10 doesn't work for me. It takes me to the Patch forum, but the most recent on there is 2.3.02 only. No 2.3.10 visible for me. How come? Was it removed? Or something going on with the forum?

    Expect the patch notes to appear in that forum when 2.3.10 goes live on Tuesday.
