Main discussion

  1. Topic from Mr Teatime on the LR Discord “how would you handle death outside the space ship for space legs?” 

Main Discussion 2 ED Re-Write Part 3

  • Michael Hughes – Facebook – Make it possible to map asteroids so you are not always trying to mine the same ones.
  • Jacko Wright Proximity voice comes so you could broadcast voice, many commanders have died needlessly because they didn’t answer My call .
  • ᑕᗰᗪᖇ ᗰᗩᑕᕼ1ᑎE & Ghost Giraffe – Twitter – Firstly I’d get rid of the horrible ‘fade to black’ on the camera when it gets remotely close to anything.  Secondly, I’d have the ability to put NPC or SLF pilots on the bridge and in pilots chairs. Thirdly make stations a little more populated

Questions

We suspect there may be one more bug fixing patch before fleet carriers at the end of Q2. So bearing in mind they did put in a small change in the last patch (Rebuying your crew), Is there something small you think could add which would make a difference to the game? (Bagseiis on Cut and Pasting the Racetrack from the tutorial).
