Faster rounds. -Tanaab Objectives (In the labs) are easier to destroy if you can get in. -Hoth flag capture values changed. The Rebels can hold their flags steady by defending only Echo and the Trench. The Empire needs one of the forward bases, plus the trench to cause ticket drain on the rebels. The Empire can cause ticket loss by owning only Echo base, as well. The Rebels must control the Trench, Echo, and one other base to cause the Empire to loose tickets. -Beggars Canyon now spawns a full Gunship in place of the Lambda, totally decked out. -Fog adjusted on many maps to better match skybox. -Bespin has had the Engineer replaced with HeavyWeapons, more fitting for the map, and removes the cloud-bus explosion pack spamming/healing on non-friendly fire servers. -Mon Cal now spawns 2 boats at each spawn point. So each small island now will be able to have 4 active boats at a time, greatly increasing transportation. -New Landspeeder Drive code. No longer explodes. -StrongLasers (sail barge, AV) now do more damage to Medium and Light armor. -Lightlaser now does slightly less damage. -ATST had it's health increased, as people said it was to weak vs. Aircraft and medium lasers. -ATST no longer does splash damage on it's main gun. However, the Number 2 position still does. -ATST Commander position (Top) #3 now can call in artillery! It is a scout, after all. -ATST-V added to the game. This is a version of the ATST on Dantooine that packs a rocket in place of the grenade. -If your team holds Jabba's palace, and the sail barge is not being crewed by enemy forces, you now have a 1 in 4 change of spawning directly into the Sail barge when choosing to spawn at Jabba's. Regardless of where the Sail Barge is on the map. -Collision meshes inside of the Lambda, and Sailbarge no longer hurt players that stand on them while the craft is moving. -Tie Fighter Exit point moved to fix exploit. -Speeder Bike now fires from only one location (centered). -Imperial Landing craft no longer leans to the left. Fixed sound issues. -Capital ships should no longer have the SPIN grief bug. They now only turn with forward momentum, which means the faster you go forward the better they turn. If you come to a stop, be aware you need time to build up speed to turn again. This should make battles more interesting. Also, you can no longer maneuver outside the top grid. The flaps won't react that high. -Sail Barge deck gun no longer has splash, so you don't fry the deck crew while using it. -Sail Barge crew members now all uncrew below deck, safe from dyeing while the SB is in motion. The pilot still is above deck. -The MF now has a vertical take off, using the right mouse button. It still has the rapid stop using reverse.. hey, we've made a few special modifications.

They will spawn based on the team that is holding the flag. TL-21 or Tracker 16. -DeathStar updated: TL positions, health of objective, difficulty. -Loaders added for Anchorhead and Lok. Still WIP, may add more later. -The Sarlaac is now awake, and hungry. One tentacle is known to bury in the sand a bit to much. -Mon Calamari adjusted with fixes for falling in water traps.
