Re: Net Neutrality

This will not happen I agree with you on this point, Flatfingers. And to be clear, this comment of mine didn't carry any weight of "yay!" or "boo!" It's just a simple observation that the GOP-controlled House is very unlikely to vote as the Senate did. I disagree with you on the rest, but you know ...

Re: Pine

It's probably a bit too early still to look for a map of the Pine world. I think they're still updating a lot of the world-y content of the game.

Re: Net Neutrality

Now we just need it to get through the House of Representatives (where they need all democrats and 22 republicans)... and then Trump. This will not happen, nor IMO should it.

Re: The other side of exploration and the same kind of different destroying the sense of wonder

Maybe the developer, instead of allocating time to rendering pretty views of space, spent that time creating NPC avatars that walk around? I can definitely see that chewing up an enormous amou...

Re: Zones

Now that Adam has mentioned taking a new look at how the "zone" feature should be designed, I thought it might be fun to reopen this thread for new thoughts. The two things that I'm still really hoping for are 1) zones can have multiple tags (owner, terrain type, ore type, political form, legal form...

Re: Objects In Space

I also was struck by how much the sensor system shown for this game matches how I imagine (and have suggested) LT's scanner might work. There's a real and important difference between these games, though, which might matter with respect to sensor use: Objects In Space is actually described by its cr...
