Random thought - are these weapons going to be hidden from the out-of-campaign missions (unlike say, Sparks and other [REDACTED] fighters)? I'd hate to accidentally spoil myself if I decided to jump in there for whatever reason.

Perhaps there could be a variable check based on whether or not the player has a save file where they have encountered anything [REDACTED] in the campaign, and only what they have seen of the [REDACTED] in the campaign appears in not just the missions, but also the codex.

13 new special weapons specific to this enemy

My guess is that this new enemy is absolutely ginormous and actually has all those 13 new weapons on it. If it's [Redacted] then it's probably going to be a tad bigger than the brilliant and probably also sport some hangar bays to launch fighters unique to the ship.

That said, I would love something completely new, like a melee-focused bioship? I wonder if Alex ever played Battlefleet Gothic Armada II...

Skip to 1:115 for the Nom Nom ship, altough the trailer is so damn good I'd watch it all if I were you!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVghX8opHJU

P.S: Almost forgot about the fact it could be Dominion. That'd be amazing!

Oh, hey, that's a great point! They definitely shouldn't show up there (and already don't show in the codex), but I forgot about the missions aspect of it. Done.

Perhaps there could be a variable check based on whether or not the player has a save file where they have encountered anything [REDACTED] in the campaign, and only what they have seen of the [REDACTED] in the campaign appears in not just the missions, but also the codex.

That might make sense, yeah - I'll have to take another look at this when I finally get around to updating the Codex! I wouldn't want to do anything halfbaked about it now since it'd likely be wasted effort in the long term.

I am eager to try the new version, I have read that there are many new features, great.
Thank you for the work you and your two collaborators are investing in this Pearl.

I won't ask when the new version will be released, because I guess it will only be when it's ready.

Thank you.

Have been.
And the changelog gets updated at least twice.

Hey Alex honest question.. do you foresee the release of Cyberpunk in December having any impact on the cycle time of updates / future releases?
I remember reading in an interview you had that you play a lot of video games.. will Cyberpunk be one of them?

Honest answer! I don't play "a lot of video games", rather, I occasionally play a specific video game *a lot*. Cyberpunk isn't one I'm at all interested in, so it won't have any impact. Generally it's not AAA stuff I gravitate to, anyway; I think the main AAA I've played in recent memory is SC2. Nothing against AAA in general, btw, t's just usually not my cup of tea.

I can sense a fellow Noita addict.

Just one more run, maybe I won't blow myself up with my own wand this time

Seriously speaking tough, I see just how much you're involved here in this forum and I'd assume you spend double that time doing dev stuff. The only worry I have (considering I've got some dev friends) is overworking and not going outside to catch some of that vitamin D, assuming you can do that whenever you live :)

Alex, for 1.0.0, how many in-game years do you want an average game  from beginning to endgame to last?

That's probably why everybody is here, in this forum... majority lol. Indie games usually are more complex and unique due to the absurd amount of years spent in developing it.

Lmao at all the new players getting impatient........at least you have a mostly completed game with lots of stuff to do.
Back in the day the game had just one system and nothing but combat.
Mark my words: 1.0 in 2022.

Oh, thought of a potentially interesting question.  How are the theoretical composite/hybrid/synergy weapons going to interact with existing weapon-specific ship systems, hullmods, and other stuff?  Ex: Will a "Hybrid" weapon count as a Ballistic for the purpose of the Hammerhead's Accelerated Ammunition Feed, as an Energy for the purpose of the Sunder's High Energy Focus, or neither?

Hmm, it really depends on the player - people have different preferences, and even the same person is likely to have different preferences in different playthroughs. I don't think this is a case where the average means a whole lot.

It depends on the weapon! A "primary" type is specified in the .wpn file (and shown in the tooltip), and that's used for modifiers like that.
