This week several major updates have been put in place to get many of the steam features in place along with various crew updates in order.
The full notes can be found here
The crew needs have been updated to provide a bit more relief in between travel times. This changes a bit of the pacing of the game to remove some of the micromanaging.
The big change this week revolves around the ability to now change crew member names adding a bit more to the overall customization of the ship. It is a lot easier to name crew members exactly what you want in order to remember who is best at what particular job etc.
Simply open the crew management window and select the icon in the top left. You will then see a prompt to change the First and Last Names.
