With the re-introduction of the Caution And Warning panel (not yet in its final layout) to the pilot’s right console, the last of the old hard-coded ship UI system has been fully removed; and all key ship UI elements now use the new externalized system. This was the key goal for this update; so I’m glad to be done with that initial work, as it’s very tedious and time-consuming. Also, I changed update methods to something that should more evenly distribute UI workload to help keep update times more consistent. Otherwise, I did manage to squash a few other ship UI-related bugs while I was digging around in that code.
The previous version’s STC-related work uncovered a few approach logic flaws that have now been addressed. Likewise, I corrected a few mission tutorial script errors that were pointed out to me. On the fix list were also a couple MTS-related bugs concerning booster VFX, and boost deflector switch logic. As always, please see the change log below for full details; and, as always, thanks for everyone’s support!
