death stars! yes. or asteroids.
This is amazing news... cannot wait to get my hands on the new build... and yes, live streams please!
Brad, and more importantly Scathis:
We need time to test that new balance. I WANT to be able to say to nanolathe, vanilla gives you the options to win in multiple ways without oversimplifying things or tilting the scales. I CANNOT say that right now. And I'm deeply concerned about ya'lls apparently cavalier "ya bro we close, dox be Rollin, they hatin'" attitude.
I'm skeptical to say the least. Hopefully myself and my friendly testing minions will be able to deliver you a proper answer two days after the patch is released.
That said, I have high hopes for gas giants and asteroids. I have no hope for the naval game.
Awesome job Uber. We've all come a long way.....
So new build in 4 days?
I'd love another 4 days of doxen.
Doxen are love, Doxen are life
I'm quivering with anticipation.
Wait, so no Unit Canon?
Last time I checked unit cannons don't annihilate things.
Unless you have a planet emitting UC.
I'm excited for release, but also a bit sceptical regarding the final list of features and fixes we'll see going live. The "gold build" has the potential to make or break the game, as it'll be the first impression for all new customers and professional reviewers. We all know there's still a lot of work left; I hope the team found the time (and the right set of priorities) to get as much as humanely possible done.
Fingers crossed ...
I'd like to second that.. a live stream of your PAX booth would be cool. So many fans can't make it there.. please!??!
Some day it will come
The exclusion of the Unit Cannon from 1.0 was stated eons ago.
It'll come, just not now.
Unit cannon? Or in somewhat more detail will this Gold release be feature complete with regards to the Kickstarter additional/bonus goals?
Great Announcement. Will PAX be part of the documentary? Also as a part of the announcement are you going to manage people's expectations? E.g. Multiple windows/monitors, Offline/LAN play, Multiplayer GW, No DRM, Unit Cannon, etc. To mitigate the shitstorm that is going to happen.
Edit: deleted split interface because PiP.
Release looks like it will be the base game, nothing fancy but good enough performance and features to satisfy new customers and reviews.
Default is another word.
We know multiplayer GW and Unit cannon won't be there. Split Interface is entirely possible as Cola made a mod for it quite a while back (hasn't updated it)... Offline mode is a bit iffy, might come, hope it does. Personally I'd be alright if they didn't include it, they just MUST make a huge banner saying "Offline mode coming soon" or something.
Unit cannon will not be present they made that known while ago on this forum but it never got out side of this forum. I really wish they got that announcement out several weeks back. They never announced it to the community-at-large.
Unfortunately, squishy, this is all stuff we asked (and they commited)to be added into the vanilla version of the game, not just the modding scene. Modders would add in all the features eventually anyway - which might seem to erase the need for Uber to even make anything for the game....which would be bad.
They never announced to the community that the unit cannon would be present either. It was pretty much assumption for a while IIRC
