First to watch, first to like, first to do indescribable things in the presence of the new ships. :shifty:

Wow, that instantaneous ship generation.

Impressive stuff, Mr Parnell.

Welcome to the club. Give me an hour and some baking soda and I'll have some cookies to offer the new members. :mrgreen:

I can't say much about LTSL, Josh, as it is a part of alien territory for me but I can see with my own eyes what a difference it makes to the development work for both you and all those who are getting excited about producing their own mods. This "changes on the fly" stuff is very impressive, even to those, like me, who have little interest in your chosen discipline. :D

Although you pointed out that the graphics hadn't changed, for some reason, I can't put my finger on it, they did look superior to previous updates. I was less impressed with the "pew-pewing" as the weapons fire seemed to be less impressive. Was it me or has that aspect of the game taken a backward step?

I have few doubts that the released version will be a triumph but I still need to see more game content before I can say for sure that it will be the game that will claim the biggest chunk of my free time. I still can't see how you will find the time to include all this game content you have promised, or how inspiring you will find the work needed to do this, but I am still hoping that you will provide that "hook" which will have me saying, "Just one more "mission" before I go to bed".

I understand you now have the tools to do the job, my friend, now give us the gaming content many of us are craving to see. :thumbup: :D :monkey:

Did I say I was impressed with the whole of what I've just sat and watched? Well, I am Josh Parnell. :D :D I just need more! :lol:

I noticed that too... I couldn't quite place my finger on it either, but the pew pew noise effect seemed almost cartoonish, and of an altogether lower quality sound than you would expect... I think the sound needs a lower pitch and more resonance or something...


Beautiful update, but yes, time to turn attention to content

Great graphics as always. The scripting is so fast I might even dabble in it as a non-programmer (just for fun and experimenting, like ship shapes).

I'm hoping as many things as possible can be player scripted to bring a wide variety to all the objects--and even new types of objects if that works too.

Awesome update! I wouldn't have minded to take a longer look at the larger ships generated by the new algorithm though. ;)
