    I see MA have been (maybe) reading my posts about how Planet Explorers do updates. Bravo! I'm liking the detail so please keep it up.

    As for the content...

    • Thule is now much shorter, starting after the arctic area. Everything has been rearranged accordingly
    but that was the best part...!?

    • You can now also interact with Garcia’s body to progress the relevant mission
    interact... "how" exactly....? o_O

    • Flying vehicles can now only operate at low altitudes
    er... wut??
     
  3. Removed Fort Isis...thank you for removing this crap from 2012. ;)
     
  4. Glass ceiling, I guess, to stop people flying out of the gorge and seeing that parts of map do not actually exist.

    Haven't been to Thule since they introduced mentor skill restriction (I don't mentor) but there wasn't much to do outside. You could however get back to Crystal Cave by flying to the 'secret televator' or simply pressing T on the south coast.

    ah interesting about then. I've not been back there either since the restriction was in place. I originally spent months just climbing mountain ridges
