Update 3.0.4

Hello everyone,

We are taking the galaxy servers down now for the 3.0.4 update which has a number of bug fixes. It also reverts the changes made to hot ships and access to outfitting in the 3.0.3 update, which means ships can now access outfitting anywhere except Starports controlled by a faction that has issued a bounty or fine against them.

Details about future crime proposals can be found here.

Estimated downtime is approximately two hours, and we'll communicate here and on our social media channels when the servers are back online.

Thank you all for your patience.
