- Capture the Cargo is in place, convoys carrying rare trade goods travel from stations in unclaimed space to stations in Itani and Serco territory. Players can listen in on channels 201 and 202 (for Itani and Serco, respectively) for messages about transport departures and arrivals. Whichever nation achieves more cargo deliveries in a week's time will be able to produce a special piece of equipment at its stations. UIT players receive large bonuses for helping one side or the other.
- Cargo now has weight, some items have a greater volume. Ships generally have more cargo space and reduced mass, allowing for the variants to be slightly more distinctive. Economy has been tweaked to reflect changes in cargo capacity.
- Jettisoned cargo containers now contain groups of cargo instead of one item per box.
- Updated tutorial with some new information and bug fixes
- Station guards and strike team pilots have been given unique names
- License tests now show up only when you're eligible for a level, and you can pay for your different licenses independently.

- Basic Combat Training now only available until level three, gives a more even curve of rewards for killing bots. Doesn't abort on logoff.
- Border war now available as a group mission.
- Players who have received five "good" ratings for mentoring will get a 5% discount at their nation's stations.
- New tips on loading screen. (needs to be centered)
- Improved some background graphics and lighting (most notably in Sedina)
