  • All known issues with getting StarDrive to install through Steam.
  • A crash related to empires trying to make peace with one another.
  • Issue with portraits displaying as white.
  • Issue where a null reference could be had (crash) with bombarding ships.
  • Issues with defeated empires still sticking around for some post-defeat diplomacy.
