Think I am going to have a wee look.
Right now in fact.

Bugger me you aren't kidding are you!
Warped into my Faction HQ base of Nanomam, and thought I would pop by the Nav Beacon for a quick fight. Usually the route would be fly in, scan who is there, and pop anyone who looks to be a threat within a few seconds of engaging them - fights never tended to last more than 30 seconds or so against small ships. Today, fly in, start checking the ships there for anyone wanted, and almost immediately come under attack from an Imperial Eagle flown by an Aisling Duval allied NPC. Imperial Eagles, while quick, are generally pretty much bottom feeders in the old Elite and can be popped by a tooled up Vulture like mine in seconds. This one knocked my shields down and took 20% off my hull and my canopy integrity to critical before I finally killed the fucker. This is a bit worrying - my old career of bounty hunting now looks to be a whole lot less lucrative if it takes that long to knock enemy ships down (must have been a good 4-5 mins fight) and costs that much in repairs afterwards.
Do like the 'air traffic control' docking messages, and the outfitting menu is a lot friendlier now. The rest - unsure tbh!
