Thread: Frontier Expo ED Speculation

  1. #136
    No expectations. Only thing I wonder is whether or not there will be boohs or whistles at any possible Livestream Q&A or E presentation, when they say something like "fantastic spectacular release of 2.4, well received by the community".

    I actually almost expect comments to be disabled on YT livestream, so the event can be "managed" without surprises from the community

    Perhaps DBOBE himself will tell us what happened to the lava worlds promised for 2.0, then 2.1, then forgotten

  3. #138
    I am hoping for a discussion on proper fleet mechanics/ guild mechanics and player ownership of in game assets

    If I remember correctly lava worlds weren't promised. Volcanism was. Which we got, sans big mountain volcanoes.

    Wouldn't it be easier to just put this in your signature?
    What do explorers want?

    Nope because they got a facelift in 2.1 and people got excited, then nothing

    Do you not think they should really be aiming for the stretch goals rather than feeding us a somewhat substandard product that we would struggle to argue didn't meet the stated milestone?

    Whut? I really don't understand you here, sorry.

    Volcanism what was implied turned out to be more exciting in background than visually for some people. It is another layer in PG planet generation, and that personally excites me, because volcanoes are in believable places and they have reason to be there, not just to look pretty.

    During 2.3 they got asked a lot why big volcanoes aren't a thing and turned out it was technical limitation of their PG tech at the moment. So similar to comets they are there, but not visible in game yet.

    You can call it substandard of course, but I kinda want to know then what 'standard' is there.

    My guess would be, that they ran into serious problems with the terrain generation and will add it, once the basics work as intended.
    And as they said, they will intend to beigification an terrain, after 2.4 hits, so we might be closer to this than we think.
    I only hope, that Frontier will be communicating, regardless of the really inappropriate behavior of some of the community members.

    But man, i would absolutely love to see some new planet types.

    Large volcanoes are not "there, but not visible", that's ridiculous.

    Geographical features like volcanoes are part of PG seeds assigned to planets. If you have way to generate them graphically, they are visible (like small vents). If you don't, you don't see them.

    There are comets in ED galaxy. They are in PG seed. But not visible in game. Same story.

    I mean, it does mean nothing to you as player, of course, I don't argue about that.

    Which is pretty much like promising your wife to go out for dinner at a restaurant, and then taking her to the neighbourhood McDonalds. It's still true, promise was kept, but rather underwhelming.

    I do liked the fumaroles and geysers of course, but it wasn't exactly what first came to mind when thinking of volcanism.

    What do you think they'll show for ED?
    This is an awesome speculation thread. I’m not going to go into too much detail and discuss what we are going to discuss at FX17, if that makes sense! But I did just want to respond to this one specific speculation. Spacelegs (as the community are dubbing them) is something that David B and the development team are very excited by and it’s certainly high on the list of features they would like to make. However, as we’ve mentioned before, “Spacelegs” is something further down the line. After 2.4 we’ll be focusing on the core gameplay experience so it’s not something that we will be announcing at Frontier Expo. I do have to say though, I truly hope that the community are excited by the content being revealed at FX. Only 2 days to go!

    Thanks for the update, it's good to know that "space legs" are still on the roadmap, and I hope the same applies to amospheric planets.

    Zac, can you confirm that you will explain new model how ED will deploy any extra gameplay content (as season didn't work out as concept) down the line at FX?

    As for anything else - can't wait See you there!
