I haven't recorded the next episode yet, so I'll consider the Shuriken unless as you say I find something better in this system.

Fantastic George! Sadly, my work computer is Policy-locked to Windows XP logo screensaver. I hope you can add the keyboard controls like in the game intro. Edit: adding a few of my favorite images from the screensaver: The ICS vs the zoahatra is an interesting battle. http://sparcman.net/images/arko...

no need to erase a system I think. Just the ability to remove the gate to that system should suffice.

I think there should be an open when buying another ship to pay extra to have an autopilot (targeting, visual enhancement, ect) installed for more money. If changing ship some other way (salvage, etc), there should be a warning or an easy way to change back if there is no autopilot. Players would pr...

I think that was one reason the trading posts were added - to get some of those "unobtained essentials" You may just have to stick it out until then. Try to find a weapon with a high rate of fire or some spread to help you hit your targets until then. Homing missiles are still useful as they will au...

If you can find and destroy enough Pirate Frigates, it will spawn and come after you. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Usually to disastrous results unless you're really equipped to deal with it. I have a video on youtube where I meet it in the Charon system and it thrashes me 18 times to Wednesday.

There's no reason that escape pods would only be big enough for 1 or 2 people. Especially on a large space station. Think more like a lifeboat on a cruise ship - they hold probably a dozen or so people. On the whole mecha thing, There's the idea of transforming mecha-spacegunships like in Macross or...

I wonder if it will be possible to have ship types that fire more than one primary weapon at once. Maybe have 3 different shooting modes: Single (fires only the selected weapon) Cross-link (fires both weapons together at the max reload of each) and Chain-link (fires each weapon once in sequence and ...

Considering how the quantumspheres have such a game-ending effect, I think there should also be some consideration of making them a bit easier to shoot down. Now, I haven't fought the ICS since it was the old model, but based on what I'm hearing, shooting them down probably should be given as a surv...

Thanks!
I hope to do a couple more videos this week, but I'm not sure I'll get the chance. Things are starting to get more interesting now that I've got much of the explaining out of the way.

Edit: 4th episode is up. Ep 5 and 6 are recorded and will be posted over the next few days.
