  • Colonists lent to the empire now return in a drop-off shuttle.
  • Crashed ship parts now only disallow punching through natural roofs.
  • Skip intro wimp quest if the player has a Yeoman or above.
  • Royalty intro quests won’t trigger extreme biomes because it made no sense.
  • Standardize red text to a more readable color.
  • Reduce the chance of selecting decrees that have recently happened.
  • Hosting quests now pick lodgers Pawnkinds relevant to their original faction, so royals’ court allies will make more sense.

  • Endgame quest raids (royal ascent and escape ship) raids now also always have at least 500 threat points so they can’t be trivialized.

  • Intro quest timer now does not start until the player has at least 3 colonists.
