With the changes to the default junker loadout, can we get some changes to the default galleon loadout? Literally all of them are horrendous

I may have got a bit too excited about practice maps... But...
YEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!

Also AI shalt be OP now.
Part of me worries about how many people would sooner have AI than newbies due to this change, so that's something to watch...

Birthday hats didn't make it into the game, but the fireworks on kills are! (love the fireworks again :) )

Did I mention Practice Maps?! Like seriously.... Practice Maps!!!!! (have wanted this since I first played.)
Practice maps! Practice maps hype!!!

Fps counter has become too huge and I cant access party options nor vote the third map at lobby start with it activated. I understand you just need to turn it off for it to work again, but still ..

It should be noted that minotaur reload has been increased to 10.

The minotaur does NOT have a burst radius despite being listed as 10 m. I've done enough testing and it's clear there is no noticeable burst radius so either change it to "0" or give it a burst radius of 10.

decals:
Sandstorm Republic - workshop
I can only look at these while my ship is sitting still in the spawn. Is it normal ?

There's no need to implement SREP's decals outside the spawn as it would be a waste of hardware resources.

I imagine to promote events, let players be aware of patches, or anything that they need to point out really.

Also so that we can tell people when the servers are down for maintenance or other known reason, rather than getting spammed with "why can't I connect" questions in every medium.

'increased AoE burst size to 10m'

This has got to be a typo. The lumberjack has a burst radius of 12m according to the wiki and with burst ammo basically hits everything on a squid if you land in the right spot. Two shots from a burst mino would give you a complete disable against a squid with this burst radius. I suspect this is 1m?
