Reverse the Verse: Oct 16th Written Friday 16th of October 2015 at 10:50am by CanadianSyrup, Erris and Nehkara

Hello Citizens,

Check out our transcript for Reverse the ‘Verse Episode 67!

TL;DR (Too Long; Didn't Read)

– Full steam ahead since then. FPS update will happen today, will also talk about Alpha 2.0 as well. Double update till both those modules are out.

– Sandi’s working on CitizenCon 2016 as well, either Frankfurt or Los Angeles. Depends on what happens with Gamescom… probably wouldn’t be fair to do both events in Germany 6 weeks apart.

– There’s a new version of the full presentation up. New version that’s high quality, 60fps etc…

– F42 has been asked to another run through of the Morrow Tour in HD, but they had a blocker this morning so stay tuned till next week for that to come out.

– [Question Has the 10ft been plugged yet?] New 10 for is filming soon, 10 for the All Stars. Design team, writing team, art team, and producing team. Post questions in the forums.

– 1.3 hit PTU, had an update last night, buggies are going crazy and exploding and such. It’s a good time.

– Folks in PTU are asking to test new weapons and ships and stuff. That’s going to be happening. Folks in PTU will have access to Hornet, Cutlass, new weapons mounts, and new weapons. Can play with ’em without spending money or using REC.

– [Sabre Q&A?] Will be released later today. Probably an hour or so after RtV.

– The BBC has picked up on SC hitting a million Citizens. There was a story last night. Very cool. [[Click here for the article](http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-34548609)]

– [Cross-Chassis downgrades?] They’re in the works. They won’t charge for them, but it’s going to take some time to figure out how to do them.

– [Will the Phoenix have a modular sale like the Tali?] No. Not like the Tali. But when the new Connie is ready to fly, there will probably be a something. The Phonix’ll be different, cause there’s a limited number of them. They’ll look at that when it’s ready.

– [Freelancer?] They forgot about it. It was a game Chris Roberts made. Chris Olivia’s a Freelancer too. No, there’s a pipeline, when it’s ready, they’ll tell us.

– [Changes to holo-table before 2.0?] Not before 2.0. But there will be changes. They know it sucks, but it’s not something blocking the dev of the rest of the game. Holotable’s an end goal,not an ideal interface, but it’s finished tech. They’ll do that later. Asteroid generation and other tech stuff comes before that.

– [Idris QA?] Generally do a QA when they introduce a new ship, or when a ship hits a new point in the pipeline. Once the Idris is flight ready, there might be a QA.

– Might show more of the Idris soon. UK keeps offereing Idris pictures.

– [Movement on a phone version for the starmap?] Not yet, but they’re looking into it. It’s a beefy site.

– [In the demo, we saw a team steal a ship. Is there a way to lock a ship?] Yes, there will be. It won’t be that easy in the end.

– Workbenches are for tuning. It won’t be as good as a supercollider, but yes. Workbenches are for tuning and upgrading.

– There are new items to the VD store when 1.3 launches (probably next week)

– [Do the Idris P and M have the same base hull?] One has a hardpoint for a rail gun, the other doesn’t. Probably the largest class of weapon players’ll be able to swap out.

– For the Connie, they’re just working on the Andromeda. They’ll do variants after that.

– [Is the Merlin able to be hooked up the connie inflight yet?] Not yet, They’re close but they have some blockers in the way but they’re working hard to get that out to you

– [Will the Tali have normal missiles?] What is a normal and non normal missiles? All types of missiles are acceptable. But really, it probably will. You’ll have options. Probably something to do with the bomb bays.

– [Plans to sell the Argo?] Question is why would you want to? There are gameplay considerations. The Argo would not do well in AC.

– They will offer a ‘breakout ship’ in the future. The Archimedes is being finished up by Gurmukh.

– [Date for anniversary sale?] November 19? Probably 19 – 26.

– [News on competitive friendly freatures? Team Balance etc…?] Not a focus right now. Want to get the baby PU out first. Balancing and team matching are much more complicated to do well. Long-term the’ll have them. In the near future, there are other things that need to be built in first.

– Probably no new hoodies in the store before 2016. They’re working on Polo but 2016 most likely for those as well.

– [Left handed version of the joystick?] TBD, but they’re working on a Q&A with Saitek, should be answered then.

– [Whats the largest ship that can go into atmosphere] TBA. There are many solutions for ships being too large for hangars or for landing. Don’t worry about it. There’ll be ways to get into the ships.

– All snubs get to be landers. That’s how you can shuttle from big ships down to the surface.

– [What ships have an Argo?] Idris. But it should fit into other things with similar bays. It’s a fairly small ship. Bulkier than the Merlin or M50. Think a bulky, less long Aurora. Possibly like a Hull A.

– [Chance of seeing other manufacturer patches? Patch set of all manufacturers?] Totally a possibility. A UEE patch set will be next probably, but they’ll look into that. Ben wants to do a second wave of shiop patches.

– The Cutlass hasn’t transferred to the LA office yet. It’s in limbo.

– [Info on new damage system?] That’s mostly Matt Intrieri. He does tech art and ship explosions. He’s doing most of the damage state stuff. Piercability is coming with physically based damage. Lots of cool stuff for weapons and components in the next few months.

– Connie’ll probably have as many component tuning and loadout options as many characters in Diablo. 1.75 to the 11 exponential. Numbers. LOTS OF CHOICES!

– [More free fly codes when 2.0 drops?] Probably not the day of, let backers try first, but as events and promotions happen, for sure, there’ll be codes.

– [Avenger update?] No word on Avenger variants yet, but they’re moving on that.

– [Updates on un-melting?] No update. If it happens, you’ll know.

– [If you upgrade a non LTI ship to a sabre, do you get LTI?] No. Melt the ship, then purchase the sabre, and you’ll get LTI.
