Supply Caches will now spawn for the attacking faction in Rearguard and Command Operations systems.
Updated the Battlefield Icon on the Factional Warfare Map.
The traits on the Venture and Prospect ships have been reworded from 'Bonuses to Gas Harvester Amount' to 'Gas Scoop Amount' to hopefully lead to less players buying the wrong size module.
Renamed the 'Restrained Interdiction Nullifier', and its blueprint to 'Enduring Interdiction Nullifier', to match other meta modules which give a benefit to capacitor cost.
Energy Neutralizer modules will now show the exact amount of capacitor they removed from the ship they are activated on in the combat log, now taking into account the ships energy resistance value and current capacitor, rather than always reporting the maximum amount possible.
Missions & NPCs:
Perun Heavy Mutadaptive Remote Armor Repairer will now drop as a 1 run BPC, rather than as the whole module in abyssal space.
Science & Industry:
🤝 Large Industrial Core I and Large Industrial Core II blueprints have had their required input materials decreased by approximately 33%.
🤝 Capital Industrial Core II inputs have been increased.
The Strong Frentix Booster Reaction Formula has had the Hydrochloric Acid input reduced from 100 to 20 to match all other strong combat booster reactions.
The 'Perun Heavy Mutadaptive Remote Armor Repairer' blueprint now requires a 'Heavy Mutadaptive Remote Armor Repairer II' as an input to build.

You'll find the new option in the Settings menu under the Window Appearance section of the General Settings tab. Note that if you manually toggle Compact Mode away from the default in a window then that mode will be persisted and the window's mode won't change again when the global option is toggled. You can reset all windows to the default mode again in the Reset Settings section of the Settings menu.
