Hi Lindsey, good to see some screenshots of your work, will you be doing procedural texturing as well as geometry? If so do you have ideas how this will work? I remember we had a fun discussion ages ago about how numbers from the procedurally generated faction/ai could determine things down to the colour of the weapon effects, lights and even the HUD of captured ships and it's interesting to see you mentioning this in the update.
We will indeed! Josh has already written a system for procedural texturing that we've yet to completely bring in to this version of LT, but we plan to do so at some point in the near future. When we do, I'll definitely write about how it works in the devlog here :)

And that’s death."

I am actually curious about what (procedural?) UI you'll cook up.
Adam is working on UI! You'll have to ask him :)

Lies, Josh would never delegate the shiny UI stuff :D
Used to be Josh would never delegate, period.
Seems he's a changed man, and I'm not complainin'. ;)
Correct! I don't know exactly how he's splitting up UI appearance & functionality, so you'll have to ask Adam and Josh.

As long as Adam implements something like the UI from LT Development Update Video #10, that's fine.

;)

Seriously, that data editor visual rendering model remains jaw-dropping. It's not an accident that the "unfolding" connected data objects was what several journalists keyed on in what was a dev video absolutely filled with extraordinary stuff.

No, I don't really expect to see that again anywhere in LT. (And certainly not in the HUD UI, which I assume is what everyone is thinking of when they say "user interface.") And I want Adam to be free (within Josh's functional constraints and Lindsey's aesthetics) to dream up his own UI solutions.

But dang. That visually dynamic data editor from Video #10 was otherworldly.

so completely useless but nice to look at interfaces?
I think we are all hoping for something that is as useful as it is pretty. Obviously not everything is going to be laid out in a node based editor, but for the things that make sense (data that is naturally hierarchical) it would be nice to have a beautiful interface, that is also functional.

Seems deep until you think about it.
