Muster your AA, Raven has a buff! And Phoenix! Actually, those are the only two balance changes and they should both be minor. The real focus of this release is on the user interface, bug fixes and other improvements.


* Phoenix can target gunships.
* Ravens dive faster. Their minimum speed is now 75% of max speed (from 50%).


* Right-clicking on a mex spot in Eco view (F4) when only cons are selected now queues a mex.
* "Skydust" UI now works with mexes and during pause.
* Reworked the gunships radar icon set
