Map Rework + FPS Map System
Implementing a minimap for the HUD as well as interior maps for FPS gameplay. Additionally, complete UI + UX Starmap rework
Freight Elevators and New Missions - Cargo Hauling
Making use of the Freight Elevators feature, this mission type will have players hauling large quantities of cargo to earn both aUEC and reputation. Implementation of systems and content for players to physically load and unload cargo to and from their ships by conveying cargo to and from hangars, landing pads, garages, and docking collars
Visor & Lens HUD Rework - Dynamic Crosshair
Converting the Visor and Lens systems to Building Blocks for improved performance and flexibility.
Player Interaction Experience
Implementing the updated Player Interaction Experience; a holistic array of complimentary features and systems, all related directly to the player. Player status, item status, environment status, as well as interactions with both the game world and the objects within it, are covered under these systems.
Improved EVA controls and animations for smoother traversal in Zero-G. Introduces limited EVA fuel and encourages the use of zero-G push/pull and the Multi-Tool's tractor beam.
Reputation - Hostility
Updating the reputation system so that players can affect their long-term reputation with in-game organizations via means outside of missions, such as reduction of reputation for killing a member of that faction.
Vehicle Modularity

Implementing new modes to vehicles to manage their speed, components, and role-specific functions. This release introduces the NAV and SCM modes, as well as a complete re-tuning of all ships.
Replication Layer Update

Image Upscaling
Implementing support for GPU upscaling, including DLSS, FSR, and an in-house TSR solution.
