Thanks, I thinkOkay, so i was going to take a lave radio break. With colin painfully never being critical enough (/jokes) and all these new people suddenly here, what the hell is going on.
Thankyou for an unexpectedly top tier episodeYou guys smashed it out of the park this week. With shan without any traces of abnormality just comes out saying "i wonder how many commanders want to marry their npc pilots" somehow i burst out laughing at that. Because reasons. Then later shan and psykit had a real honest to goodness fight? That was too good!!!! Im here writing a compliment at how great lave radio is.
Thanks, I think
@Phoenix_Dfire , is just genuinely "that nice" even in private!
What 'new people" are you thinking about? @psykit joined the team a couple of episode's ago hopefully freeing up @Souvarine to take 1/2 a step back, and I guess we have (sometimes recurring) guests on from time to time?
I know we try to walk a line between being Frontier White Knights and Argumentative Types looking to rip up everything that Frontier does. My main concern for Tuesday's show was that we didn't turn it into a Slag off every design decision FD has ever done, whilst constructively voicing our concern.
Anyway thanks for listening and let's see what content today's Alpha drop brings!

Right there is something I do have to say at this point. I often get abuse for not being critical enough of FDev and some of their decisions. I'm the host, I have to take a more neutral position than the rest of the crew and try and keep the show balanced. Being a software developer myself (I hate using that phrase), I do give FDev the benefit of the doubt a lot because I know how much work is required to do the things they do and, despite what people may have heard, game dev is hard.
Full disclosure, I do have a ten thousand word essay of criticisms (and quick fixes) of the game but I don't put it on the forums because ;-
Just because I come across as more neutral than critical doesn't mean I'm not scratching my head at some of their decisions.
- It will come across as one of those preachy open letters and we all know how people 'Love' those.
- It's nothing that people haven't said elsewhere and will bring nothing new to the table. If fdev ain't fixed them by now, I don't believe they'll ever get round to them.
btw @Vetinari I don't think we spoiled anything that isn't public knowledge,
- i approve of psykit.
- really enjoyed the positive theorycrafting discussion.
Still not listening to current shows due to EDO spoilers but up to Dec 2013 in archives now, if you like the theorycrafting its well worth listening to the early shows to hear it there with the hindsight of how it actually turned out, very interesting. I probably agree with psykit even though havent heard this one, every time they speak I generally like their POV.
