Change List for Upcoming S.P.A.Z. 1.0 Update

Over on my favorite forum, Quarter to Three, one of the programmers of Space Pirates and Zombies has posted a list of the changes in the upcoming 1.0 patch to be released on August 15th, and boy is it a doozy! Take a look after the jump…

This was kinda too long to NOT use the “more” tag. ;)
