Re: 1.8 Beta 2 is ready!

 Quick question, since I’m not quite clear on it, do you get far enough after launching for the first time that you can log in? If so, what expansions download? Is it possible to start a game with expansions disabled or before logging in to download them?

Re: Gamer Motivation Model

 Action and, to a lesser extent, Achievement are going to be the main draw for most players. …Unless they get into modding, at which point Creativity gets a big uptick.

Re: The Backroads — an alternate route

 Update of the (insert random time period here): The Backroads has been updated again. This is a minor update involving a few minor tweaks, but most importantly the removal of a call to the obsolete &dsDryDock; dockscreen (which, annoyingly enough, I wasn’t actually even using ). This will make TBR ...

Re: Tomorrow on Twitch: Spreading the Word

 Word-of-mouth here, too. A friend threw a link at me and said, “Here, play this,” and I was hooked immediately after noticing a few gameplay similarities between Transcendence and Escape Velocity: Override.  Also, important note to anyone planning to watch tomorrow’s stream and contribute from IRC:...

Re: The Backroads — an alternate route

 Somewhat ironically, Yatfwan thrust is one of the things I want to poke at a bit. I’m happy with the basics, but it acts a bit weird right at the start of thrusting. I was also planning on changing station weaponry to AE weapons to match the ships (since I forgot to do that when I updated the ships...

Re: point juno

 You can report bugs here . Unfortunately, there’s no search function on it — feel free to chime in here, NMS ^.~ — so you kinda have to load everything to find out if it’s been reported or not. Just make sure you check to see if something has already been fixed in the development branch before tick...

Re: point juno

 Yep, it’s a bug. It’s been fixed in the development branch of the game, but unfortunately there’s not much you can do about it in your current game.

Re: list of objects

 There’s the wiki page , but it’s almost sure to be a bit outdated. Alternately, decompiling Transcendence.tdb with TransData will let you browse through the code to look at everything.  There are a lot of items in the game that don’t have any purpose except to be sold, mostly it’s a matter of knowi...

Re: The Backroads — an alternate route

 Update of the (insert random time period here): The Backroads has been updated! For as long as it took since the last update, there’s been surprisingly little progress, though. Most of what’s been done has been a few tweaks here and there, one new faction based in the Ironground Jurisdiction, and t...

Re: 1.8 Beta 2 is ready!

 Not just you, and not just the Viking! The Barbary and Corsairs are a bit bigger, too, and the Sapphire is significantly larger. They all got remodeled for this release, and everything now has 120 facings, even the ones that haven’t been redesigned.

Anacreon Discord!

 Transcendence has had a Discord server going for quite a while, and earlier tonight WTVD0 asked if there were any Anacreon players active over there, which got me to thinking. So I’ve made a channel on the server specifically for Anacreon users.

Re: (Future) Era 4 Development Discussion Thread

 Everyone look sharp over here. George released Transcendence 1.8b2 earlier today, so y’all have him for the next few weeks. I’ll make sure to point him at this thread come Thursday’s weekly Twitch stream.
