Bugs
----

The New TurboLasers, Because They Used To Be Engines, They Will Shoot From The Engines, Its Not Too Bad, Although It Will Go Through The SSD Bridge. There Is No Way To Fix This As There Is No ALO Importer For Max 8. If You Dont Like What I Did With The Hardpoints, Grab The HardPoints.xml From The Old Hardpoints Folder And Overwrite The One Included In This Release.

You May Notice Some Lag, This Isnt My Fault, Its Yours. Get A Better PC :)


What To Expect Next Version (If There Is One):
-----------------------

Hopefully The Defend Ability (The Shield) For The SSD, Thats If I Can Get It Working.
Maybe Some More Units Added, Like The Tie Interceptor And Stuff...
Also I'm Gonna Try And Get The Imperials To Build The SSD When Your Playin Rebels.
