Thread: List of things that will be added during Beta

  1. #1

    Default List of things that will be added during Beta

    Howdy

    Thought it might be of benefit to list all the things that we're aware of that are planned to be added to the game that may or may not be introduced in the Beta phases. It may help new people to see what is planned so they don't need to create a question thread asking if X will be added.

    Please post anything you don't see here and I'll update this post.

    Please only post things we know are going to be added and not things that you hope will be added (Post here for that).

    These aren't in any particular order currently but if we receive a road map of sorts I'll order them in expected release order.

    This isn't a definitive list of things that will definitely appear in Beta. Some things may slip or not appear. This is just a list for informational purposes so people have an idea of what to look forward to/answer questions about what "may" be added in the two Beta Phases.

    Colour code is Green for stuff that we've seen in newletters/dev diaries etc.. and can be treated as 100% confirmed as being in the full game and could appear in Beta at some point.
    Yellow for stuff that didn't make the full game and FD said nothing about it.
    Red for stuff that we subsequently find out was supposed to be in the game but it turns out no longer will be added (none yet but it might change as we progress through Beta)


    Ships to be added
    Imperial Courier (concepts in Newsletter)
    Panther Clipper (concepts in Newsletter)
    Daulphine (concepts in Newsletter/Edge 264)
    Beluga (concepts in Edge 264)
    Federal Cutter. LINK

    more speculative :
    Krait (here) thanks Cosmo
    "the hunter" (http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/443372868max.jpg) ?
    New ship, name not currently know (by me at least) - Link

    Good list, thanks for doing this. Well, I can't remember anything else, but I am keen for surprises as usual from FD.

    I just can reaffirm that:
    #1 We will see wheel station at least, Adam Woods said that we will see that very soon two weeks ago, so I guess next week;
    #2 Comms has been asked about and confirmed multiple times;
    #3 Damage models - again, Adam Woods said "soon" month ago on second official Twitch stream;
    #4 New ships - obvious, but I won't be able to look up sources;

    You made a mistake on the total number of systems.
    There will be more than 400.

    Please post anything you don't see here and I'll update this post.

    Please only post things we know are going to be added an not things that you hope will be added.

    • Law Enforcement
    • Groupings
    • Communications
    • Missions
    • Access to the other 395 Billion systems
    • Mining
    • More ships - list if you know then and I'll update
    • More weapons/addons - list if you know then and I'll update
    • Dynamic events - e.g. famines, wars etc..
    • Rankings
    • Faction alliance
    • New space stations
    • Docking on Cruisers etc..
    • New trade goods (including unique trade goods)
    • System Map


    As expansions

    Good post

    A couple I'd missed in there

    - Fuel
    - Docking Aids (see newsletter)

    Good thread!

    Will get back here later (got work to do now), but things I immediately come to think of is:

    • Passengers (unless we choose to count this as missions)
    • NPC Contacts interaction
    • Wingmen
    • Fuel
    • The ability to dock with capital ships.
    • A more fleshed out supercruise mechanic. The ability to see, chase, interdict and avoid other players/NPCs, slingshots around planets and similar.
    • System map
    • Procedurally generated stations (instead of the more or less static ones we have seen so far).
    • Different types of stations...(there will be shipyards, fueling stations and similar in the final game.)
    • Improved planets (this will be an ongoing development)

    yes that is correct, Michael stated that more systems would be added during beta, but he hasn't said the entire galaxy would be added.
