This is a short but important update.
Weapons have been slightly tweaked.
An account system has been added. This is part of the larger purchasing system, but I wanted to test it separately. It may or may not remain as part of the “unpaid” feature set. Every existing account starts off as “guest”. If you’re above tier 3, then the game will ask you for an e-mail. It’s very important to provide this information, because it’s used to restore your account if it ever gets lost. From here on, I will not be manually restoring any lost accounts. If you lose your progress, go to “Accounts” and select “Link account”. Enter your e-mail there and your progress should be restored. You can do the same thing to play from multiple devices (only one device can be logged in at a time).
Front and rear pods on M40x spacecraft now have separate paintjobs. This will cause rear pods on existing spacecraft to become unpainted. This is expected. Just paint them again.
Bug/Idea medals will be awarded later in the day. Your medal cannot be awarded if your in-game callsign doesn’t match your forum name (send it to me in a private message).
You will lose:
- any in-mission progress
- all graphics options, which includes your window/borderless/fullscreen setting.
- if any options have been removed or added to a new version, then all menu options (not just graphics) will be lost.

You are reminded that during Early Access you are responsible for backing up your own progress. Make a copy of everything under
C:\ProgramData\InterAction studios\CIU (including all sub-folders). Never rename files or move them from one version folder to another. Simply make a copy and then later put it back exactly where you found it.
