I returned to my efforts on the lunar base today, as I’ve begun my detailing pass to make it all look nice and fill it with loot. There’s still a couple of elements I’m going to need before I can totally wrap up on the mission, like scripted NPC events (among other things). The good news is that we will have Metadept officially joining us in the office next week so we should see some really big progress on this front soon! I’m quite looking forward to having him in the office for the long haul, since he does a lot of stellar work and is a great guy to collaborate with.
George has continued working on his own mission and has been making excellent progress, with very little support required from yours truly. He’s already got a solid foundation down to build upon, and even though it’s rough around the edges it’s already looking great, I fear I may soon be eclipsed by his talent! That said, the fun bit will be when I get to teach him how to configure NPCs.
I’m afraid I don’t personally have much more to report, again for the wish to keep missions relatively spoiler-free. The programmers have continued to toil away on their respective tasks, which continue to sail over my non-programmer head, but what I was able to grasp is that they’re intensely focused on crushing a number of insidious bugs that crept their way in some time ago. Kyren in particular seems to be gearing up to assist Metadept when he arrives by tackling the systems he’ll need to work with.
Lastly, just in case you missed the announcement; the Chucklefish Blog has just gone live and Tiy kicked it off with a fairly comprehensive post on our plans for what will feature in Starbound’s 1.0 release. I wouldn’t advise reading it if you want a spoiler-free experience, but for those of you who absolutely must know what’s coming next you can read it . On this new blog we’ll be posting Chucklefish-related news, along with updates from the developers of games that we’re publishing, so you guys should definitely check it out from time to time!
Good night everybody!
