This week we have an exciting event for you! We are introducing our new PvP event, Bounty! Which will allow you to attack other Bounty participants and claim part of their Bounty (similar to event points). At the end of the event you will be able to spend your bounty in an event style store. The top prize is going to be the new defender hull, Courage.
We have two additional ways for you defend yourself as well. We are introducing a new feature known as Channel Defenses, which will allow you build structures to help protect your water ways. We are also adding new turrets to the retrofit lab!
In addition we have changed the instant repair costs for your base. It will now be equal to the building with the longest repair, which will lead to a reduction in instant repair costs.

Bounty is here! Running from Friday, 8/25 @ Noon - Tuesday, 8/29 @ Noon. Once you activate Bounty your Outpost will begin to generate Bounty.

We are adding a new way for you to be able to protect your base with the latest update, Channel Defenses! These are new features you can add to your base, which you will place across two water tiles connected to the land on either side.
Channel Defenses come in two parts: The portal which operates like a defense platform, and the trap. Portals will require a one-time Uranium Titanium cost, in addition to basic resources and time. And Traps, which have their own unique properties. All upgrade times can be reduced using base parts.
With this release we are introducing the first Trap: The Great Rampart!
The Great Rampart
This will be researchable through The Advanced Lab,
Portals may have multiple armor, turret and TacMod slots on them. You will need to get a blueprint for each Trap type. You can swap Traps exactly as you swap turrets with a resource and build time cost.
Portals can equip Turrets as well as Traps.
Each trap has a has a primary mechanic, and may apply bonus to turrets, armor, or TacMods attached to their portal.
Traps come in two broad types: Barriers and Sandtraps. A Barrier must be completely destroyed before an enemy ship may pass. Sandtraps greatly reduce the speed of the attacking ships in their area of effect, but may be bypassed.
The First Trap (It will be named The Great Rampart on the live server)
That is Channel Defenses folks! How is this going to change your base layouts?
