Bring a coat. This update's a bit icy :)

Take your thoughts on mining over to here! :)

Do you guys find this scanner more intuitive / useful than last time? Are we moving in the right direction? Or...still something missing? :)

You're really pushing all the right buttons where I'm concerned! Can't wait to see what March brings. :D

I was in desperate need of a new desktop background, so I cut this from the video: http://random.laerad.net/LTscreenshot.png
Hope you don't mind!

Edit: Took some more screenshots from the part at the end:

Firstly, The ice is absolutely incredible. The scanner is much much better. I'd be happy if this was the final version. :) Mining looked cool and the system itself was really beautiful. My jaw dropped the moment I saw the station. Kudos! This update is the best LT update yet. Until now my favourite was #7 cause it had planet landing. :)

Magnificent! Thanks!

There's one minor thing I noticed in the video, at the end.
Sometimes the light of the central star is blocked by an object much smaller than it.

You know, at first I didn't even notice the ship or station. I just accepted them when they came on the screen. Then I was like "hey, shouldn't those be shiny boxes?".

Great update.

The mining is looking really good. It would be great if the beam affected the asteroid in some visual way (perhaps removing matter or causing the surface to crack).

It also feels like a step between prospecting and using the beam could be required - how about destroying an amount of the surface to get to the required depth in order to use the beam?

Anyway, its looking amazing! Really excited for next month's update :) :thumbup:

Seriously, it is a beautiful sound effect. The game look so amazing; I've just come into the university labs so I can rewatch the video on a properly functional computer with a decent-sized monitor.
Yes the sound guys really nailed that one!!! And...I was actually thinking the exact same thing - I tried using that sound for thrusters for a while to give it a more 'energy-based' / exotic feel. In the end I actually felt it was annoying to hear that sound constantly, unfortunately :( H-drive would be firing a lot more often than transfer unit...it needs to have some kind of really minimal but still exotic sound....no idea what that would sound like :think:

Btw nice monitor! Looks big :squirrel:
