Hello Citizens! Another week, another week in review!

This week was a pretty slow week up until Friday’s Reverse the ‘Verse, but we got a veritable bevy of good information during RtV. Check out the top five tidbits of the week, and the full rundowns below!

  1. 2.2 PTU next week possibly, features should include: Flyable ship: Sabre; Hangar ready ship: Xi’an Scout, Crusader Reputation system, New EVA system, Powerplant and coolers introduced, Crusader layout changes, many behind the scenes fixes
  2. Almost everyone at CIG knows that the holotable and party system are bad.
  3. Working on a schedule for persistence with Turbulent.
  4. HOTAS is currently undergoing discussion regarding quality and where the happy medium is.
  5. Drake Interplanetary has two ships beginning development soon. You read that right, TWO. Buccaneer and Dragonfly, check the forums to see ideas of what it will be like.

10 for the Developers 

  • Almost everyone at CIG knows that the holotable and party system are bad.
  • Best way to help with bug catching is to use the Issue Council, and to be clear and concise in your descriptions.

  • 2.2 is almost ready, getting ready for a PTU release, just waiting on internal QA.
  • The Package Split has happened. SQ42 packages will launch alongside 2.2.

  • Work continues on Caterpillar concepts, Gurmukh is working on additional ones.

  • PTU invites will go in waves. Will Everett will make a post explaining the wave system.
