I ran into something I don't remember being typical FS behavior. I played through the FSPort on Hard, was glad I could make it as far as Commander and a full medal case, then I figured I'd restart and see how much further I can make in the ranks simply by replaying. Well, I can't. My pilot stats were reset, my medals taken away, so it looks like I just started that pilot today. I don't remember FS pilot files behaving like this. As a matter of fact, I remember replaying the main FS2 campaign twice so I could get a full medal case.

Was this a necessary change? Why? Or is my memory mistaken and it was always so?

"Truth" is the opinion of the majority which it can enforce on the minority. Members of the minority have two choices: join the bandwagon or think. Those who do not fall into line will be brutally crushed.
The tools to maintain order are: lies, double standards, and hypocrisy. The most powerful and the most insidious of them is hypocrisy

Actually i can not confirm that.

I can restart over the campaign room, change campaigns and can even change whole modifications without a problem. Rank, Score and Medals are always taken over. The only thing that is messed up are the kills by ship type statistics...

But that worked also with the old pilot code for me... but there was a higher risk that the Pilot got corrupted or every statistic was wiped out at some point, even i have never encountered that. The new code should be much more resilent in this matter.

If you want to know, what my nickname means, -chen is a german diminutive term, so you can translate Novachen as something like Little Nova or Novalet.
Even my original meaning of this name is more like "Sweet pretty deadly (Super)Nova".
