Time Passes Rules: Make a list of options the GM can pick from to offer the players as their reward instead of giving a static list. This lest the GM meter out beach episodes (or level ups, etc) if they need to.
Plot: Made it less on rails. Let the players cut the action with increasing the plot durability rather than doing it all upfront. (Let Plots be the backdrop) A plot only takes a hit when a player fails.
Completed basic Vehicle rules.
