Servers are back up after this morning's scheduled maintenance period. Today's patch includes fixes for several of the issues introduced when the 1.4 update went live. Among those changes are a fix for the companion hide helmet option, crew skill missions returning the expected amounts of materials, weekly missions again being obtainable, fixes to the GTN, and once again being able to right-click on players' names in the chat window.
Quote from Joveth Gonzalez
Just wanted to let you know that tomorrow's maintenance should bring in a lot of fixes to some of the top issues seen with 1.4. We're aiming to fix the top-reported issues found here, but keep in mind that with any update, a variety of factors could influence successful implementation. This also doesn't represent a comprehensive list for tomorrow's patch, as we have more fixes going in, but this will give you an idea of the status for top-reported issues.
Thank you for your patience!
