    2. Cmdr Coddiwompler: Will we need to return to a carrier admin system to equip optional modules?

      Paul Crowther: You will not need to make any jumps to install the social spaces themselves, however the new services are like any other and must be installed in a system that has Carrier Facilities. If your carrier already has a shipyard, its on foot counterpart will already be installed.
    3. Zac: Hey all, we’re aiming for later this week for U11 – not concrete but that’s the current plan.
  5. Steam Charts for February are out. They show that the number of steam players are approximately 12% down on January’s. However, we are still above July’s figures by quite a margin. Hopefully the downward trend will change after Update 11.
