Some guild management options were moved, in order to reduce the guild page clustering.

- The guild master option to “delete guild” is now placed at the guild editing page.
- The option to “remove player from guild” and “set player as guild master” is now placed at that player profile.

Interactive Map
- In the Map page the map height now adjusts better to the browser windows size.
- Small changes to improve the usability on touch devices.

Others
- In the astro view there is now a button to move fleets to that location.
(Making less necessary to copy/past the locations coordinates or using bookmarks to move fleets, will be also a big help on mobile devices.)

To reduces the cluttering of the account page, the latest updates that was display in the account page was moved to a new page, there is a link at the top bar named “Updates” to view the latest updates, there is possible to see more updates than the usual 3 last ones.

Note: The players still receive an onscreen notification every time there is a game update and the News/Blog section of the account page that is linked to game portal also contain game updates.

The ships animation in the base production page was changed. Instead of using Flash it uses now Html5.
This allows computers that don't have Flash to run the animations.
It was also added buttons to pause/play the animation, go to full screen, zoom, etc..

Note: Internet Explorer 8 and older versions still displays the older flash player.

Wormholes will appear in the new galaxies sets after 180 days since the galaxy set opens instead of the actual 90 days.

With this, in new servers, like Nova, the first wormholes will appear after 180 days instead of the normal 90 days.

There is now a “Skip tutorial” button in the Tutorial page. With this, experienced players can skip tutorial if they wish and hide the tutorial from the main navigation menu.

Now in the fleet move screen when there is just 1 unit in the fleet, that unit is auto filled in the quantity to move input field.
This can save extra clicks for example when a player is scouting with scouts ship.

Now when a player only has 1 base, when clicking in the Bases button, it shows that base instead of the list of bases.
This can save few clicks at game start and can help new players with one less menu around.
