This weekends update finally added Unit and Structure Downgrading! (cheers).

You can downgrade one level at a time, it takes one turn, and you get half the credits you spent on the upgrade back when you downgrade. It's essentially a "One Level Salvage". Corp HQ cannot be downgraded. When downgrading a ship, you must select an existing upgrade that will be removed. The idea of "rearranging" all the upgrades on a ship at once was scrapped as it added a lot of time-consuming complexity. Perhaps in the future.

Another change was made concerning the combat oriented events (Pirates, Raiders, Mothership, Kaiju) that pay out a bounty. Instead of using the amount of damage done or received to determine how the bounty is paid out, it instead now uses the sum of your military Power used in every combat.

It's now the end of February and we're way behind schedule! There are a few more UI changes that would be great but hey might have to wait now. There are a couple of features I want to get in the game and then do a reset of the Beta test. I want to try to add the Asteroid mining and MAYBE give a crack at all the military orders having a "move to" component also. This would mean that your attack order, at the top would have the Move o Location interface also. Combining a movement order along with the other orders allows you to make one order that is "Move To Memphis at Sell Basic Minerals" and then "Move To New York and Pick up Basic Minerals" then a loop order. It also makes "Move to Location where a ship will be next turn AND attack it" in the same turn.

The reset is needed to implement the idea we have about making only the Planet Earth be "Terran Fed" controlled and the other planets be high resource open planets like the rest of the galaxy.
