Fuck yes. Quality of life is desperately needed.

Next phase, let us keep seeing what a build takes after it's started. Especially with limited use BPs like Watt Aug. WHAT DOES IT NEEEEEEEED

Modified Augmenter Tweaking missions so that you can exchange 10 augmenters instead of condensers for each tier. Changed Loaded I and II kits to have Arcadian tier gear so they’re harder to be destroyed by AI.

Oh. My. God. Yes.

This again... condensers were costing them money long term... Because they sold them, and once they actually needed them they could not go and collect them with the efficiency of an established player, forcing them to buy.

Condensers never made anyone rich, especially since the same DGs that drop minor-std cond also drop special extractors worth 1-2b each pretty regularly. All this does, is make it so that a new guy getting AT doesn't have to bankrupt himself on the first fucking level of it.

New players will still go bankrupt because the further levels require stuff like 10 blue gamma, 10 blue beta augs ect....

Yes, but this is at least progress. They won't be bankrupting themselves on the first level now.

Also a solid point, the other levels let you pick missions that can be cheaper or easier for the individual player, 'Next Level' missions have had no alternate until now.

The way I did it was that I went through and set it up so that you could turn in any 10 minor augs, any 10 basics, and so on to complete each mission. The mission currently will not accept condensers, although I could setup an alternate mission to accept them if that would be desirable.
