i forgot that from the notes.

* Achievements are now enabled, but cannot be rewarded unless you have a steam client (which are not available yet), When you get an achievement on regular client you receive a message in event and it will be awarded to you as soon as you connect using a steam client (no need to redo them)

Addition to the patch notes:

* Kalthi Warrior, Kalthi Armored Warrior, Kalthi Wrathful Warrior and Kalthi Destroyer have new ship models.

And they look amazing :D

Other than that, we're aware that Vacuum Scoops don't work. They don't pull items towards you at all, but they do scoop the items if you are within range of them :) We're looking into this now.

There seems to be an issue with the Holoprojector fix as well, as transwarping will break the holoprojector. There are also some issues with them appearing in galaxies without being attached to the owner's ship :)

If anyone else find any other issues, please report them in this tread, or to me in a PM :)

So... can you just remove this 30s timer so vacuum scoops work again? and 30s isn't very long for someone running DGs anyway. The best thing about vacuum scoops was knowing that loot will get sucked up, not remembering to go and re-enable every 30 seconds.

They're trying to stop the farming. It stops the farming. It's a good change and 30 seconds is way more than you need to scoop some DG loot.

30 seconds is a bit short for me, sometimes I want to toss a bunch of crap from one alt to another. 5 mins would make the vacuum scoop work there without being something you can use to abusively farm with.

PS. Stopping it scooping after the time limit makes it worse at scooping than any other scoop. Just stop the vacuuming part...
