    Opinion of the change
    something not in changelog i noticed is medic text is now green and stands out, which i really like, espically how it pops when your dead, now i can REALLY aggro when the medic ignores me, and know when he is doing his job.

    More food vendors is good

    no of frans updates seem to have been implmented

    Stuff like this is always nice to see, it's not game changing but it adds a bit of polish and smooths things out. I've played engie a bunch of times and sometimes it would take me a second to find barricades, especially in the heat of the moment.

    Added MOOC (marine OOC) and XOOC (xeno OOC). These OOC channels will be visible thorough the game, but only staff members will be able to post to it.
    This is good to see too, it's minor but when you're playing marines or xenos and you see a mod talking to the other team in OOC it kinda takes you out of the round. I'd hope for a survivor OOC and maybe ERTOOC in the future too.

    The biggest change is identifiers and it turns out even with just 3 letters you can come up with some names that I'm sure will eventually get people in trouble, Ancient Drone JE-XXX-W really stood out to me last night.

    The new gun ranges are a good change, people won't have to go past the CPs to test out weapons now and they'll freak out medbay less.

    All in all pretty good.
