The rest of AtV and Reverse The Verse were all about Party & Group Features:
3.2 is the most basic implementation of the group features
You’ll be able to have a private chat lobby in your parties, in the future the chat logs will also be available on the website as it’s all linked.
You can do all of your party management and chat via the CommLink mobiGlas App.
But you can directly interact with a player (press f) to add them to the group.
Markers will appear for your team mates.
Reverse The Verse – Looking for Group
If someone in your group commits a crime the rest of the group gets a collective portion of a crimestat.
The only way to currently transfer funds between players is via a service beacon, but they will have easy transfers in the future.
Mission Sharing will be a thing in the future, but not for the current implementation.

You’ll have some customization of chat and the mobiglas, you’ll also have mute and basic chat features too as well as auto rejecting invites.
Party members will have access to open all doors from other party members ships.
