If I remember correctly, there was this bug where friendly fighters can be hit by friendly fire if their engines get flamed out.

Has that been addressed? Or did I do a dumb here an missed it in the previous patchnotes.

I believe that's a feature, not a bug.

Fighters temporarily get the same collision as normal ships when flamed out, which allows them to get hit by friendly fire and crash into ships.

Don't know the proper term for it, but searches have returned nothing so far.
Could there be an option to disable the 'helpful' hint popups ("Your fleet has entered hyperspace!", "All of your ships are below 20% combat readiness", etc.) completely for old/seasoned players?

Eschewing obfuscatory verbosity.

Hi, welcome to the forum:)

There's a checkbox to disable the hints completely whenever you start a new campaign.

Oh. I must be dumb. And blind.

So much for a well thought-out first post.

I come in for my semi-monthly check on the game, and WOW, I am so looking forward to playing with the new update when it comes.

Just from the patch notes, looks awesome Alex.

How will faction hostilities be decided?  Are there factors for tension like land, trade wars, attempts to destabilize colonies- or  is it just random?  It'd be interesting if all the other factions can (attempt to) band up to beat down anyone that gets too dominant.

It'd also be interesting if the player (or AI) could ultimately subjugate all other factions as a kind of late game challenge, or take missions to help re-establish a faction suppressed by someone else.  Maybe by the power of love friendship threats-of-violence the player could even unite the sector and usher in a new dawn of prosperity!

I guess in a nutshell I'd like the system to allow for a little intrigue, some power plays: tangible player driven changes beyond just being good at killing things.


On an entirely unrelated note, have you been working on starsector full time or are there other projects to keep the bread flowing?  Such a long time working on one game; must feel odd to know you're reaching the finish line.

Thank you! Smiley

It's random, and factions taking over other faction colonies isn't a thing at this point, so it's not something I want to flesh out. We'll see where it goes; in general I'd expect diplomacy (if any) to be fairly rudimentary.

Full-time, yeah. I don't know that it's *that* close to the finish line; we've still got 1.0, whatever bugfixing etc after that, and (hopefully) an expansion. So (provided the preorder income allows it) it ought to be Starsector work for the foreseeable future for me, so it doesn't really feel weird in that way. I do know what you're getting at, though!

(Bounties)Will now pay out and increase reputation when hostile or worse with offering faction

I can see some case of this being an improvement, but just out of curiosity(and some lurkers' request): what is the reasoning behind this change?

Mainly just removing what felt like an unnecessary complication to convey to the player. It could really go either way whether bounties raising rep from below a certain point is good or bad, and given that, the simpler option seems the way to go. And since I was re-implementing all of these as "intel"...

At least I will not need to grind Remnants for cores to turn in and raise reputation above Vengeful.  (The cash bonus is nice, but the rep raise is what I am interested in most.)

Yeah. Part of my thinking was that the extra bit of player freedom this grants is nice - one can RP this in their head however they want.
