As you can see, a few things have been done. Including in the list above I also crash tested the Weather and Geophysic System and found bugs of course. They are also corrected.

Anyway it is done for this version. Starting tomorrow, after my day job, I will work to update the Knowledge Base until about Sunday, and I will release on Monday.
July 1st is a day off here, so I will without celebrate the national Canada day by releasing a new version of FAR Colony :]

That’s all for today, have a good Thursday!
