After installing 1.42, something weird happened: I lost a lot of honor points I had accumulated and modules that I had unlocked somehow became locked again. I had a bit more than 10k honor before the patch and that went down to a bit more than 2k. Before the patch, I had unlocked all modules, races and a few hulls. The races and hulls are still unlocked but a bunch of modules became locked.
The modules that are now locked still show up on the designs I used them and in battle.
well I can’t explain the honor, but the modules were locked to make it easier for newbies to understand the game, but Cliff just assumed that everyone who unlocked them already had enough surplus honor to unlock them again.
