No Twitch session tomorrow Oct 18

Sorry, all, I had to fly out of town unexpectedly this week and won't be around for our usual Twitch session.

I'll return next week. See you all then.

No Twitch session today

Sorry, all, but I can't do the Twitch session today. I'm in the middle of a move and we don't have internet connectivity yet.

Next week for sure.

Thoughts on ships and armor mass

Shrike/Song has been working on differentiating various ships and I want to share some thoughts. Let's consider Commonwealth/friendly ships that the player might be able to pilot. I created the following table: ShipTable1.jpg The full spreadsheet it here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1UwYO...

Re: 1.8 Beta 3 is Ready!

Just uploaded 1.8 Beta 3.2!

I wanted to fix the Freyr bug since that's a major regression too. The Freyr weapon was not firing straight if it had no target.

 It’s oddly fitting that Shrike and I, notorious partners in crime, wound up on the same page of the Special Thanks. Now I’m actually sort of curious whether that was deliberate or not, heh.
It's alphabetical by last name (at least for the current members), but it's a good coincidence.

Re: 1.8 Beta 3 is Ready!

I made a critical fix and released 1.8 Beta 3.1. It should update automatically the next time you sign in to the game.

Games created with 1.8 Beta 3 are not good, unfortunately. Please restart a game with 1.8 Beta 3.1. [You can tell the create version if you bring up stats (F2) for the game.]

I like the new repeatingDelay. Updated few of my mod weapons already.
You can thank Heliogenesis for that one.

1.8 Beta 3 is Ready!

I've just released 1.8 Beta 3. This version contains mostly bug fixes and API features, though it does add various minor enhancements. This version will download automatically if you have any of the 1.8 betas (and are signed in). Otherwise, please download at: https://downloads.kronosaur.com/Transce...

Transcendence Broadcast: Domina & Oracus

Tomorrow on Twitch I will continue my permadeath run with the EI500 freighter. The topic for tomorrow is Domina & Oracus. Here are a few questions to kick things off: * Are the Domina powers in Stars of the Pilgrim balanced? Overpowered? Underpowered? * Is it too easy or too hard to get Domina power...

Transcendence Broadcast: George plays Starbound

Tomorrow on Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/kronosaurproductions) I'll play Starbound with Ttech. I've heard great things about the game and I think it has a lot in common with Transcendence. If you've got any tips for playing, please post them here. Tune in tomorrow at 4 PM Pacific time. See you then!

Transcendence Broadcast: The Sung Slavers

In my permadeath run I'm now in the Ungoverned Territories, so I thought I'd focus tomorrow's Twitch session on the Sung Slavers: lore, mechanics, strategy, etc. If you've got ideas for new mechanics or missions, or if you've got questions about the Slavers, please tune in and contribute.

Gamer Motivation Model

Related to the marketing question, here is a model for categorizing player motivation. Which do you think best fit Transcendence players?

Re: Tomorrow on Twitch: Spreading the Word

Thanks to everyone who tuned in today! One thing we talked about was focusing on the strengths of Transcendence. For example, I think the size of the universe (number items, encounters, etc.), plus the variety of activities (exploring, escorting, mining, etc.) make for a great experience. This is so...
