Update 19.5.2021 (Alpha 458)

New features
  • Company Tag system
    • Companies can assign different kinds of tags to players. Serves as an internal rating system.
    • Company members can see assigned tags next to the player's name in the game world.
    • Tagged players can't see their tags and tags aren't visible to players outside the company.
    • Tags can be assigned and edited in Company -> Tags menu.
    • New permissions in Rank Control Panel:
      • "Create and edit tags" determines who can create new tags and edit tags in the "Tag Manager" page
      • "Edit tagged players" determines who can add/remove players and assign/remove tags in the "Tagged players" page
Known issues
  • Gravity in the hover area may pull the ship back to a point where it was moments before, when flying on low altitude on the moon
    • Cruising excessively along the moon surface is not recommended
