Are moving parts something we can look forward to in ship design in the future? I would also like to see designs like concentric circles or more non-shippy shapes.
Moving parts, no. More alien/surreal ship shapes, yes.


In non-LT related news, Josh & I are going to be participating in a New Year's Eve Party Stream on Sunday!! We're gonna be partying with friends, playing games like Overwatch, and supporting our friends who are Twitch streamers. I might also be streaming! You can follow me on Twitter, follow Linzey on Twitch (not me- different Lindsey XD), or keep track of this post for the announcement of when we go live on Sunday evening. It'll probably be late, since we'll be streaming through midnight to celebrate the new year. Again, this is not LT-related, just for fun & wanted to let y'all know that you can come hang out with me & Josh on a stream ^^ <3

The stream itself went super well- Linz got 5+ new subscribers, the chat was active the whole time, and we had a lot of fun. Thank you to everybody who joined!!!!!

The plumbing in the house did not fare so well, and a drastic leak caused a section of the ceiling to cave in. Which Josh, by the way, did a great job of helping clean up. XD It was very expensive to fix, but hopefully it's over now. (Luckily, also, this party was at a friend's house and not our apartment or the LT offices. :P)

Back to LT-related news: Josh and Adam have spent the better part of last week working on the PAX demo, and after a short break for NYE, I'll be back with Josh in the office soon. I'll be posting a new devlog on Friday, as scheduled!

Happy new year to everybody. <33333

Those are some sleek "interceptor" looking ships :D

Some of them look like they ran into a kitchen table before they took off:

Wings make sense, honestly, though perhaps not in a typical two-winged aircraft-like manner. They're good places to mount things on a ship that
  1. need to stay moving as part of their defense (don't have the shields and HP to tank attacks from larger ships)
  2. flies at its target to attack (small ships such as fighters/bombers)
  3. Doesn't have much surface area (small ships, typically, such as fighters or perhaps bombers)
  4. Doesn't want to greatly enlarge its profile relative to its target (smaller profile = harder to hit)
Well, the concept of fighters in space is quite ridiculous to begin with.
A lightly armored flying bomb is incredibly easy to hit (with realistic weapons) and heavy armor defeats the purpose.
So let's not even go there.

Go Spacefighters! =P

Embracing the insanity of it, reasons for having wings could be...
  • If you have at least 3 wings, you can mount the main engines away from the ship's body, greatly increasing turning capabilities while saving on maneuvering thrusters.
  • If you have spindly/thin wings with the engines on the outside you can divert an emission-seeking warhead a few meters away from the pilot.
  • Impulse-based sensors (based on a classic impulse RADAR) would benefit from the triangulation angle.
Ugh, I feel a sanity attack coming on so that's all I got for now!
There is no "I" in Tea. That would be gross.
