Starting this thread so you can see when new blog posts are up from within the forum, and for discussion thereof if such is desirable :)

On that note, new post is up - Weapon Lore & Roles.

It would be nice to have the weapon type listed along side the role / mount size lines for easy browsing. By type I mean, kinetic, energy, etc. Overall looking good.

You mean in the game, right (as opposed to in the post)? That's definitely going to be there, along with all the other weapon stats.

Yeah I was talking in game. I wasn't sure how directly the blog content was ripped from the game.

Ahh, I see - not at all. It's ripped from a document, which is going to have its contents put into a csv file which is then going to be loaded by the game and displayed among a bunch of other data.

Looking cool. Nice work Ivaylo.

Love the Mjolnir micro-singularity cannon, bits like this will really add to the immersivity (?) of the game and help bring it all together.

I am eager to give this new order system a try!  It sounds like it perfectly balances the need for direct control with the need for what could be termed 'operational realism'.  

Starfarer becomes more exciting with each build!  This could well become my favorite sci-fi game of all time!  

So...the game should be finished by next week, right?   ;)

New blog post: Captain Personalities, Fleet Control Update.

Talks about captain personalities, some changes to the fleet command system, modding as it pertains to those, and a bit about what's next in the near term.

So...the game should be finished by next week, right?   ;)

:D

Personalities sound like they are going to be a lot of fun! 

As for the secret feature...hmm.  I know!  Starfarer is going to be free 2 play MMO!   ;D

Nope, I've heard they've upgraded the engine - it's now voxel based!

Hey no one has said "Starfarer will be in 3D, the kind you need glasses for" yet.

Does that mean anything?
