News Status on Focused Feedback Forums

Hello Commanders,

We wanted to give you an update regarding the numerous Focused Feedback forums. We recognise that it has been some time since we’ve spoken about the topics covered but rest assured, the team have been hard at work in shaping the final chapter of the Beyond series of updates.

If you’re unfamiliar how the Focused Feedback forums function, allow us to explain in detail. The Focused Feedback forum section is a platform which allows us to present you with proposals on upcoming game features. With your feedback, this allows us to potentially tackle any problem areas we might have missed, or areas in which a feature can be improved upon.

We realise that it’s been some time since you’ve heard about those features, but we want to assure you that the team appreciates the time taken to discuss, scrutinise, and critique Focused Feedback topics. While the team have not been able to address each and every piece of feedback we received, we can confirm that the vast majority of discussions have been extremely useful in reviewing those features before they are released later this year.

In the coming weeks, you will be able to see the new content in game for yourselves in our planned public beta tests. We’ll also be showing it off for the first time in a series of pre-beta launch livestreams.

We also wanted to take a moment to talk about the Powerplay discussions. Whilst this was never planned as part of the Q4 update of Beyond, it is still a feature that we wanted to collect feedback on and investigate and we thank you for that. The discussions players have had about Powerplay give us strong guidance on how we may revise the feature in the future.

What’s next?
Until this part I absolutely expected you'll announce that the exploration FFF is cancelled.

Later today we’ll be presenting to you our vision for Exploration improvements, in a post on the forum, and we look forward to hearing what you think. As this topic will function differently from previous Focused Feedback topics, we’ll be asking you to share your feedback on the thread itself.

In addition, over the coming weeks, we’ll be presenting you summaries of the features coming to Beyond’s final chapter in a series of social and forum posts, and you’ll be able to test them for yourself in the public beta – of which we will have more details on very soon.

In preparation for the beta, we’ll be archiving existing Focused Feedback discussions. We would like to once again thank the community for their feedback on all the topics so far, it has been immensely valuable.
Glad that I was wrong... :)
 
Vision for me is something what does not exist yet. So I bet you are heading similar way with "visions" as the other space game dev on the market. It's not about vision, it's about facts and what you have already done, isn't it?
So you'd have preferred "screw it we'll do it live, here's 3.3, suck on it!"? :D (Which may be a better release strategy, considering how this "community" works…)

Its not like I am trying to tell you how to do things but the thought just occured to me, Since this topic majorly consist of 3.3 details and very little info about focused feedback, isn't it kind of an announcement and the topic should be named related to 3.3? Just a thought. You basically just said in a few weeks we will do the 3.3 beta.
 
Great! Happily surprised by the early beta releases and streams to come. Can't wait to see the new and enhanced features in action.

Excellent news, been waiting for the Exploration info. :)
 
Thanks for the heads-up, looking forward to the livestreams and even more so the upcoming betas

A touch concerned that the exploration-related feedback/public consultation is only starting now. Methinks while it will be invaluable to help tweak things, this timeframe indicates that most decisions will have already been well and truly made and implemented.

Anyway, very much looking forward to the next few weeks and very appreciative of the increase in communications from FDev recently. Hopefully this is a trend, and not an abberation! :)

Same thought occurred to me - with only 2 1/2 weeks left in Q3, there's precious little development time left for the Q4 release (even if it goes out of the door on Dec 17th), let alone design time, so what, exactly, is Focused Feedback going to achieve, apart from turning the forums into a molten salt reactor?

Maybe there's time to change the name 'Codex' and do a translation round? 'Codex' sounds like a bad mixture of Warhammer 40K and Harry Potter lingo.

they are probably going to alter whatever they made for 3.3 for a few weeks based on the focused feedbacks before the actual release.
