  • You can now switch to “Battle Mode” by pressing M. This alters the controls of the ship to give you more maneuverability and acceleration at the loss of top speed. Press M to toggle back to “Travel Mode.”
  • The introduction of these two control modes has made other controls redundant or obsolete, so D and S no longer affect the game.
  • Pointers now show an icon of what object they’re pointing at instead of being generic arrows.

Notes to self:

  • When toggling to Battle Mode, the ship is instantly slowed down to new (lower) max speed. This is bad.
  • New pointer icons need more work on how they display, etc. The pointer code is not very flexible, and needs to be revised.
