As part of our ongoing evaluation of the "New Player Experience", and as a followup on our previous improvements to the start room, this update includes some significant improvements to the New Arrivals Hangar.


Celeste Harbour Military HQ has been redesigned.

Paint Factory has been renamed to a more fitting Victorious Firebase.
Teleporters in the underground are now visible to everyone.
South Island from 8C Windy Isles teleporter is now protected by the IFN, enter at your own risk. The IFN have the authority to engage anyone disturbing the wildlife on the island. (NOTE: Non lootable PvP zone now covering the island)

Aakas Instance Improvements

Chambers 1-10 have been modified so the creatures inside them will now be lootable. As part of this modification, the treasure chests have been removed from the chambers.

The Golden Key instance remains unchanged.

Known Issues

The hitbox on the Pandi is undergoing some improvements.
Textures missing on the Monura Female.
The New Arrival Hangar's force field is still in need of some minor adjustments to allow friendly ships to enter.
The IFN are still investigating all these highly effective silencers that been attached to a large amount of weapons. They assure everyone that the sound issue has no effect on the weapons output and that the firepower is as effective as expected from both Herman and other approved weapon producers. (other sound effects are also being worked on)
