Summary

  • There we go! The show is now live! Today's guests are L.A's newest Community Manager, Tyler Nolin. Andrew Fernando from QA, and community twitch streamer Gritspitter.

  • Today they're going to start off with some Star Marine. Also playing with them in J.J, their Cinematographer whose responsible for their broadcasts.

  • [Delta Patcher update?] No ETA right now, but they're still hard at work on it.

  • [Tyler Nolin, What did you do before becoming a Community Manager?] QA in Austin, he had a good experience starting off there and learned a lot about the game and tools used.

  • [Spaceships in 2.6.2?] There will be spaceships (No there aren't any new ones)

  • [Jedi or Wizard in the Harry Potter universe?] Jared says Jedi.

  • [Super important question: Are you going to add space sharks?] No. [Space Whales?] Nope.

  • The next Gamedev Happy Hour will be a more visual scripting episode, think more Bugsmashers like.

  • [Can the engine support Gundam style suits for a total conversion mod?] The game won't have it, but if you have the skills, go for it.

  • [Did Chris approve the spider to be put into the game?] It hasn't been put through that process which is the pipeline so it's currently sitting on a pile with the other concept waiting for review.

    • Gritspitter: There should be a system called regret with planet nope inside of it. Jared: I could design that system in minutes.
  • [At which point will orgs be customisable ingame? Able to set ranks and budgets, etc] This Sunday(or next) they'll talk about that. First it'll go to Spectrum, then when it's relevant it'll be put in game.

  • [Do you like Pineapple on your pizza?] Jared: It's damage inside of your head for thinking that.

  • [2.6.2 to the PTU?] The plan was originally to get it to Evocati this week, but there's a few bugs to track down before that's possible.

  • [Can the Reclaimer scrap a ship with people inside it?] Jared: I don't know, you'll have to find out and tell us how it went

  • [Private servers?] Too soon for an answer on that right now. When the main game is finished or close to, then that becomes a more relevant question. It was apart of the original Kickstarter, but it's too soon to answer that how they'll work.

  • [With VR being harder and harder to implement with UI changing, is it still being considered?] Will Maiden has a great post on the forum talking about that.

  • [What is your plan for the game, what will you fly, what kind of occupation will you persue?] Tyler Nolin: He wants to fly a BMM and become a smuggler.

    • Gritspitter: Looking forward to exploration, but quite a few different things. Playing scotty and running around and repairing things. Also make an alt character and make a hobo that never flies.
    • Andrew: He doesn't know yet, he's a very indecisive person when it comes to that.
    • JJ: ARRRRRR.
    • Jared wants to fly a Genesis Starliner and be apart of public transit.
  • [Will extra game packages give us an extra character slot, or will we have to have a separate account?] That's still something being figured out right now.

  • [Which is better: Twizzlers or Red Vines?]

  • [When is the next concept sale?] No exact time locked down yet, but keep an eye on a thread in Spectrum where they will announce it when it's ready. They'll give a week's notice when they do.

  • [More love for Medical/SAR] Once the Cutlass Black rework is finished they'll move onto the Cutlass Red and Blue.

  • [From yesterdays ATV we saw modular stations that will populate a vast majority of the universe, will we see non-human outposts and stations?] You'll have to find out down the road.

  • They've finished their last round of Star Marine and are bringing Happy Hour to a close. Gritspitter will be streaming after the show and will be giving away an Anvil Hornet SQ42/SC package.

  • There's a Bar Citizen happening in the D.C. area, check out the Bar Citizen site for details.
