Drox Operative
Drox patch 1.024
September 11, 2013 - Soldak Entertainment

Since the last official patch, the patch adds Drox Guild quests (IotA), adds new race services: order planetary goods (Hive), call for recruits (Drakk), retraining (Cortex), buy bombs (Brunt), enhance components (Utopian), and spying (Shadow), balances the races to be more unique, and fixes a bunch of other minor issues.
