Alpha 17 rumors/expectations

Postby LittleEricPKT » Tue Jan 21, 2014 12:55 am

I don't keep as active on this forum as I'd like to. Does anyone have any knowledge about what can be expected from Alpha 17 as far as new features go?

Only the developers actually know, and they are tight lipped. Everything else is rampant speculation.

EDIT: I got ninja'd. The image above is likely not indicative of anything. Large televisions were removed from the game 10 or 12 versions ago (they didn't work), and gun racks have been in the spritebank for at least as long. We know that these things are likely to be implemented eventually, but there is no reason to believe that alpha 17 is when it is going to happen. Similarly, more advanced carpentry was mentioned in the alpha 16 release video, so we know it is coming, but I wouldn't hold my breath for alpha 17.

Again, rampant speculation. :P

Ptilait, thank you! I forgot about that from the A16 video!!! And xander I'm aware of that, I'm looking for tips and sometimes the devs do purposely leak what is coming or show us in dev video footage on Twitch.

Again, not asking for promises or guarantees, just "speculating". There, I said it, happy? :P

Perhaps I misread your original post, but the phrasing seemed to indicate that you were looking for something more than speculation. In fact, you asked if anyone had any knowledge about what was coming. It was not clear to me that you were inviting speculation, and my intent was to help you by noting that no one but the developers has any actual knowledge about what is going to be in the next alpha.

I'd expect at the very least the menu looking thing will be revamed, like where you have so many high sec prisoners you can't even scroll through the list any more to the lower security prisoners so you can open/close the intake.

That's simply a bug and it has been in the game for quite some alpha releases now. Not really a reason to believe that they will fix it this time around (although I hope so of course as it could be considered the only game-breaking bug at the moment xD).

Do you really always have to be a smartass? If it makes you feel happy, keep doing it but it gives people a negative impression of you.

And for the items, the carpenter table was indeed said to be put in the game at an unspecified time but the guardlockers were put into the materials.txt so during Alpha 15 so they might have been working on that. The Large TV's were removed before Alpha 9 because that's when I started and I never built one.

How do you know that there isn't one? The fact that a roadmap isn't public is not an indication that it doesn't exist.

You didn't offend me, I'm giving you some critism on your behaviour based on what I can observe. What I think of your behaviour is irrelevant and meaningless.

All I'm saying is that signing every post with your name and being a smartass gives off a negative impression and makes you seem a bit narcistic.
Constructive Critism it's called I believe,

Plus I told you should do whatever makes you happy. If your current situation is one in which you are happy enough, don't change anything. If you aren't, this might be why

Yep, it needs. But hey, we can already know their roadmap by watching their people.png, objects.png , materials.txt(Which all objects and contraband names are listed there and unused as well) etc etc..

You being ridiculous on purpose? I'll rephrase for Mr. literal, the game needs a public roadmap it's been over a year.
