There are a lot of changes and mainly fixes in patch 2.7 . Thus, most modders will have to adjust their mods.
As there is also the pressing deadline of June the 15th for Superbox content submission, we have created an extended and detailed changelog for all modders to use.
But first, a small advice for all modders that have added new ships to the game: As fixing the index of ships can be hell with just one new ship added, you can just paste your new ships before the single new entry added in with the 2.7 patch as that ship will only be spawned with the MD (which only checks the typename).
UPDATE: One new ware has also been added to the TWaresT. For it the same applies like for the Tships entry. It can simply be moved to the end, after the mod's entries.
If anyone has more advice for other modders regarding the switch to 2.7, please feel free to post them here!
