Release Preannouncement - fuel / flight changes

#1

General Notes

This is a preannouncement for the upcoming fuel / flight release. The release date is Tuesday, April 16th ~10GMT.

In contrast to former announcements and rumors it will not be necessary to fill up your FTL tanks prior to the release to prevent getting stranded due to higher FTL fuel consumption. Depending on your current FTL fuel amount your ships will be fueled between 90 and 100% after the release.
