Game Update 28

Hello Pilots,

We are deploying an update to all live servers on Wednesday, December 11th code re-factoring and some features.

The code re-factoring is not visible during game play, but was necessary in order to clean up code and means for our Development Team the solid groundwork for future features. It should also slightly affect performance positively.

This update will need a server maintenance of approx. 120 minutes overall. We are going to start to shut the servers down at 9.30am CET (UTC+1). The countdown will start around 15 minutes beforehand on each server.

The game update will be deployed as following: 

9.30 am CET – EU Kobol
10.00 am CET – EU Libran, Virgon, Canceron 
10.30 am CET – EU Tauron, Picon, Sagittaron
11.00 am CET – US EAST 
11.30 am CET – US WEST

This release will contain 

- Environment: We increased the amount of freighters cruising around in the galaxy
- Graphics: We added to all flight controls the awesome thruster effects during hard turns
- Controls: Added a hotkey to switch to advanced flight controls (not bound by default).
