NPCs Visual Upgrade

Hallowe’en has left some eye candy in Starpirates.

Most NPC graphics have been dramatically improved. 90% of NPCs in the belts use updated images, with each NPC getting their own look and feel. In the past we had a very limited number of images that we used for multiple encounters. No more!

We’ve also fixed the size difference factor. If you’re in a big ship, and your opponent is small, they now look small. Same goes in reverse.

If you play clean mode, without graphics, you may get no benefit from this. But, if you play graphic modes (like I do), then you’ll see the big difference. I still want the pods, clouds and platforms further updated but that’s ok. Big, big difference for now, and big step forward.
