A large part of the modifications must therefore concern progress and inconveniences that may arise with some missions, but there is also no lack of improvements in stability and also a large number of reworks in the graphics.
Other options will also be added, such as support for other widescreen formats and a general improvement in graphics with improved textures, lighting and shadows, which should impact both environments and characters.
Other modifications will refine other elements of the scenarios: among them a feature that has already caused users to discuss such as the geometry of the planets and their projected shadows, which must now be corrected, as well as adjustments to objects that were not yet accessible. The full official notes will be published next week, coinciding with the release of the beta update on Steam.
