Some players brought it to my attention that I misunderstood the legal system of the classic Elite version: Indeed, there are no Vipers in Anarchies... Or, more precisely, if you are an Offender or a Fugitive, Vipers in "not-so-safe" systems will not bother you... In Alite, whenever your legal status was not clean, Vipers would attack you, no matter what Government the current system had. In version 1.5.0 I made some changes to the legal system. So, first of all: If you are in an Anarchy (or a Feudal), they do not care about your legal status. You may enter as a Fugitive and they won't bother you. Furthermore, they won't necessarily report you to the authorities, if you commit a crime (there is a certain likelihood, however, that someone hears about your illegal actions and reports you...). Moreover: If you become very unfriendly and attack a space station in an Anarchy, they won't send Vipers after you, either --- they will do something else, though :). Are you brave enough to find out? :) -- I figured it only makes sense if Anarchies do not have any Vipers available, so why send them after you when you attack the station?!

I hope the new legal system plays out alright. There might be some "strange" results regarding illegal trading/pirating, but I feel that it's closer to the original now. So, thanks again to all players who mentioned this to me! Enjoy!

In other news: I am still getting reports about "lost commanders". Now, there's nothing more annoying than spending hours on a game just to realize upon starting it again, that all your progress is lost. I will reconstruct any commander you have lost, but in the new 1.5.0 version of Alite, whenever an autosave game is overwritten, it is checked if the new save has more gametime than the old one. If not, i.e. if you try to save _less_ gametime over an existing commander, a backup is automatically created. I hope this won't clutter your drive space too much -- if in doubt, you can always delete non-needed commanders in Disk/Catalog.

One more thing: The texture file for the "Yellowbelly" was corrupt! I fixed that one, too... So the game won't crash anymore if you encounter this "beast" :)

You can download version 1.5.0 here (as the all-in-one-solution) or in the PlayStore, which is preferable, unless your phone has problems with expansion files.
