    Hello Galactic Survivalists!
    In today's March update, as promised, we have provided a first set of improvements and even new content.

    These include, among others:
    - The improvement of the sword and body shield includes an increased swing speed, an additional animation, and a glowing effect around the avatar when the shield is active.
    - The UI/UX improvements have added new information and markers for the Dark Field strength on the map, as well as a warning message before landing on a planet.
    - The new feature for range preview of generators allows a live preview of the effect field before final placement, for both Dark Field Neutralizers and Generators as well as regular gravity generators.
    - The new content includes a gravity generator for small ships (SV) with a renewed model and various ranges, available in both game versions (with and without DLC).

    Unfortunately, the "Boarding Parties" feature discussed in the recently released blog had to be postponed to the upcoming next update in April. So, your security teams have gained a little more time for training. ;)

    Included in today's update, of course, are bug fixes as well as further adjustments and improvements listed below in the complete changelog.

    As always: please report bugs in this forum: https://empyriononline.com/forums/bugs.24/

    We thank you all for your cooperation and patience and look forward to your feedback!

    When the player is inside the gravity areas of both CV and SB, does the total gravity results by the sum of the gravity of both vessels?

    I think it would be the sum total gravity of both vessels.

    Sadly, the only we would be able to test this is to see how high we can jump.
    Turn one of the gravity generators off, then see how high we can jump again.

    The test itself means nothing if we do not know the rules first. This, for those might want to issue a bug report if needed.

    In this example yes the gravity gen field for overlapping vessels/structures applies the total amount for all gens.
    We are aware of this & might have a solution in the future for this (no ETA for this yet).

    While I can understand why you want to make this change, I am going to lament the loss of the "gravity gun" builds from the past.

    ...this is something we are also "aware" of ;)

    Just activate god mode. After all the maximum speed the player can achieve can not be faster than the speed while in god mode, with the well known shortcut keys pressed simultaneously of course.

    It's a pity the gravity generators only effect the player, so your god mode cheat works just as well.
    Imagine a "slingshot" that throws an SV across the map.

    How about use the gravity of the planets instead? Empyrion already has this mechanic, at some extend.
