    - Sprites

    • Fuel cost for traveling between star systems now scales with distance, up to a max of 1000
    • Add sound effects to lecterns and blank books
    • Rewrote lectern code to be more streamlined and to use less storage space on your computer (since it stores items in it). Unfortunately, as a result, some non-codex items (ie Shattered Alchemy's pages and Aetheric Book Creator books) are no longer considered valid items for a lectern
