Hidden Forgotten Empires Bug
In the previous update, unwanted Forgotten Empires were hidden from the diplomacy list. Unfortunately, they still caused the new message indicator but then there was no way to get rid of it.
I fixed the cause of them being in the list in the first place. The server will no longer keep stance records for forgotten empires.
Rendering of rings around planets was changed, for the better I hope. They will all be wider. NPCs should be able to harvest from any portion.
Nav Console Star Names
At the nav console there is a button to show star names on the screen. When that switch is on, the navigator also sees those star names in the sky near the appropriate stars.
Self Destruct 3 Minute Min
The self destruct sequence for a ship now imposes a minimum time of 3 minutes.
Empire Citizens List
Empire citizens list had a problem when two people had the same name in the same empire. This is fixed and a column was added to show the id of each citizen.
Banks Mint Money
It was suggested that banks should be able to mint money. Now they can. This does not change machine ships; they can still mint money too.
Gear List Sort
I may be the only one who was bothered by this, but the sort order of the gear list sometimes started with Helmet, Clothing, then Armor, particularly if you put the clothing on before the armor. That always looked weird to me. The list now always starts out Helmet, Armor, Clothing, regardless of what order you donned the clothing or the armor.
