* Shiver is the original creator of the mod. He came up with almost all of the ideas and wrote most of the code. He does not work on the mod anymore, so Gekko and Oldlaptop have taken over the development.
  
* Source code will once again compile properly on Linux systems, which was not the case last update. Whoops, sorry about that!
+
* Gekko was Shiver's primary play-test opponent early in the mod's development. He also helped port this mod from UQM v0.6.2 to v0.7.0.

* Oldlaptop has been a great help in testing and debugging the mod. He has implemented many of the latest features and fixed bugs.
  
* The blazer is flagged as a weapon. Cyborg Utwig and Yehat will use their shields against it.
+
* Xaionaro wrote the original retreat patch and has helped in the general mod development.

+
* UQM core team members Meep-eep, Fossil and McMartin provided coding and debugging assistance.

* Torpedo turn wait increased from 0 back to 1.

* Torpedo initial homing delay removed. The weapon is more responsive against enemies at short range as a result.
+
 
+
* Torpedo homing script dumbed down back to the way it was in vanilla melee.
+
 
+
* Torpedo speed increased from 32 to 40.
+
 
+
* Torpedo duration decreased from 26 to 24.
+
 
+
* The peashooter has been converted into a flak gun. The primary weapon now fires three projectiles forward at different angles. Projectile velocity begins at the same speed as before, but decreases over time; weapon range is noticeably lower. This weapon consumes 3 energy per shot and has a 6 frame cooldown.

+
* Flak gun relativity increased from half potency to full.
