The latest changes after 10 months:
- Weapons: Added 5 new weapon types (ballistic burst, plasma blast, manual beam, chaining beam, and plasma wave). Improving many of the old Drox Operative 2 weapon types. Such as fighters, bombs, missiles, and special weapons. Race ships can also use the new weapon types. Also, now race ships and monsters can fire their weapons from much farther away.
- Cataclysms: These are massive sector wide events that can greatly change the balance of power. Some examples: Harvesters, Fanatics, Singularity, and Creeping Death.
- Icons: The Drox Operative 2 artists added more icons for skills and services. Even defensive ram components and offensive ram components.
- Better Diplomacy Options: You can now buy planet data from the races. There is an option to sponsor diplomat and colony ships. Beacons now work for all races, and planting spies is cheaper.
- Improved Radar: Drox Operative 2 radar now tracks planets, gates, and allies much better.
- Win/Loss: Subject races no longer count for diplomatic wins. The death cost has been decreased so it’s harder to get an economic loss. Win conditions now have priority over lose conditions, and diplomatic win rewards are much better.
