As far as dramatic changes go, not much has changed in this patch. However, those experiencing certain bugs or issues with their characters, Scanners, Ships, or Graphics will be thrilled to find out that a fair few alterations have been made.

Perhaps the most important changes are fixes towards characters not being in their proper locations, and the bug where a vendor’s full inventory was accessible, which may have stopped the glitch many used to get loot from a vendor out of a puddle.
