If you made this comment shortly after the announcement, I'd say that you have a point, that hiring your girlfriend is cause for concern... but I think Lindsey has proven herself a valuable asset to the development of the game over the last 6 weeks.

If, after a fair assessment of her work, you still think her being his girlfriend is problematic and a sign of desperation in the project, then by all means, throw your hands in the air and lament the imminent doom of limit theory, the rest of us could use some entertainment.

'I hired my girlfriend, lol'
If anyone needed a more clear sign that the project is in deep deep trouble. Here it is.
So the meaningful and visible progress that she has demonstrated in her short time with the project doesn't mean anything to you? I agree with Hyperion: at this point it's clear that Lindsey is a very valuable addition to the team and someone who will help LT achieve its full potential (if it wasn't before due to her skills and experience working on videogames).

It says a lot about the regulars here that you weren't laughed out of this thread for your comment, but keep in mind that if you continue to claim that the sky is falling despite every indication to the contrary, even the most patient people will eventually tire of your comments.

I'm flattered, but I prefer to lurk in the shadows like a dark, mysterious, snack pet stranger :p
We all have aspirations and dreams my friend, but then we sometimes have to confront reality

I don't see any meaningful progress. Ships would be flying boxes until the economy and sandbox elements are finished which have taken to the sideline while Josh wrestles with increasingly unimportant crap.
Therein lies the rub, the truly monumental challenge at the heart of building LT (a challenge so formidable that I've given it the title of The Fundamental Problem of Limit Theory; FPLT for short): the completion of Limit Theory demands the utmost efficiency in both run-time performance (a la C++), AND development cost (a la LTSL). These two interests, as most programmers know, are in oppisition to one another in the world of development. In general you can have one, not both.

I'm patient enough to let the cards fall where they will. Limit Theory is late, very late. Ships are not gameplay. This is not a game till there is gameplay.

She's not hired to do gameplay. She's hired to do ships, so can Josh can focus on gameplay because he kinda sucks at ships.
You need both to have a finished game. This is why every game has artists and developers. (In case of LT, the artist needs to be a dev as well of course, for PCG)
So judging her merit by value of her not doing what she wasn't hired to do in the first place is... silly.
Warning: do not ask about physics unless you really want to know about physics.
