Re: Development Update #18: June 2014

Josh, the ship looked good, and the AI (especially the big vessel) doing its thing looked amazing - really impressed so far and I can wait for this, its worth it. Keep going. :monkey:
fraggdya's list of unreasonable demands!
1. I would like a tannoy in my ship that plays 'Ride of the Valkyries' on repeat.
2. A replica of the Icarus II ship
3. A shrubbery

Re: Development Update #18: June 2014

Very nice update :)

Of course it makes some things obvious:
  • Colonies need some models too. Preferably procedurally generated ;)
  • An AI that is less than perfect at shooting might help some players. A variable degree of imperfection would also be a way to model NPC skill levels :angel:
More about the latter coming soon in the suggestions. Unless I find an existing thread where this was already discussed to death :silent: .

Ah yay, that was pretty epic taking the second exit towards legendary. We're almost there :lol:

One thing I found a little odd was the light in the middle of the planet when Josh was flying through the asteroid belts. It looked almost like some star light residue or something? When he aproached the planet to land on the colony, the planet was way darker and the light was proper showed. Maybe is a side effect of zoning or it has more to do with ambience light? Anyway, I found it a little odd.

This new type of ships were cool. The behemoth in the first seconds of the video was like a big submarine! Loved the trails and the sense of immersion provided by the flight model and the zoning.

And it was very nice to be again on the surface!!
I have been - and always shall be - your friend.

The spinning reticle seems to have been replaced by the two inner lines on either side of the reticle, which feels more natural to me, personally.

More mystifying for me is the 'radar' thing in the lower left corner. It doesn't seem to have any purpose so far, it doesn't show asteroids, nor ships that I can see.
