Guns at the gate
We have sentry guns at empire stargates now running on the Test server. Currently they behave like the sentry guns at the stations, that is they don't pre-emptively strike but are only triggered by combat in the vicinity. We are looking into having sentry guns at both stations and stargates to strike pre-emptively if a ship that is grossly out of line standing vise (security or faction) gets in their range.
We are also looking into changing all jumps to be gate-to-gate.
