  • FIXED: Drone(including wingmen)-launched paratroopers will now count towards field capture
  • FIXED: Issue with the field data not being relaoded when you are in the spawnpoint selection area and you change the terrain
  • FIXED: Bug where if a non-player-mission .off file (like the 1v1,2v2 air attack off files) were loaded and issued .fly
    command the settings in the off file (such as #wingmen,
    #enemies) were not being honored
    * FIXED: Drone Wingees as follows:
