What is the difference between final defense mode and area defense mode?

Area defensive fire occurs during normal weapons fire which happens after all movement has been resolved, while final defense occurs during movement triggered by missiles who's movement will result in attacks.

An indepth description of beam point defense considerations can be found here http://aurora2.pentarch.org/index.php/topic,4035.0.html

I just started reading this topic, a newbie asked how to start the game, questions about design, mechanics and development tactics in the game. The topic was started in 2011, so what do you think, could I use tips on the game, some basics of the game from this topic for version 2.5.0, or has the game changed a lot?

Don't use anything before April 2020 as a reference. The earlier VB6 version of Aurora was originally released in 2004. A new version, completely recoded in C#, was released in April 2020. Almost all the mechanics are different to varying degrees compared to VB6.
