  107. [1:00pm] Rho_: vanity slots are a thing and we're probably going to have lots of wacky stuff
  108. [1:00pm] The is now known as Guest87210.
  109. [1:00pm] Tiy: There are so many different visual styles for armor (we're using the same random generation system as weapons) that you won't need "costumes" as such, because armors will cover everything. But! You can equip armor to be purely visual, just like in world of warcraft
  110. [1:00pm] Tiy: many of the armors are fun, so youll be able to find a knight indeed :)

  119. [1:01pm] Tiy: though it's awesome someone has set that up
  120. [1:01pm] fetalstar: <Dawn> Will there be mining in the game? And How will you manage your city?
  121. [1:01pm] fetalstar: while i go switch my mouse because my mouse likes to randomly doubleclick and it's getting annoying
  122. [1:02pm] Rho_: there'll be mining, lots of it
  123. [1:02pm] Tiy: The terrain is fully deformable, so you can go underground. Managing your city is going to be really interesting. You're going to have control over pretty much everything. I can't talk about this too much yet, because we're still looking at whats possible. We're hoping to give the player a UFO that's attached to the homeworld
  124. [1:02pm] Tiy: the UFO will let them suck up NPCs and reposition them

  131. [1:03pm] Tiy: Yes! :) First of all there are ways to obtain weapons beyond just enemy drops, etc. So you'll be able to make sure you get the weapons you want. Then on top of them we're planning for you to be able to paint them

  141. [1:05pm] Rho_: could change, idk
  142. [1:05pm] Tiy: There are going to be facilities you can place down, that may take the form of buildings. For example a weather control station on your homeworld. But you can place blocks :)
  143. [1:05pm] Tiy: But yeah, Rho is right, we're still looking at it

  221. [1:13pm] Rho_: yeah
  222. [1:14pm] Tiy: gameplay until end game is pretty long. It is sand box based so you could rush through it at breakneck speed if you wanted to. But the concept here is for the end game to be limitless and endlessly entertaining.
  223. [1:14pm] Tiy: Each planet in the game has a threat level, from 1 - 100

  226. [1:15pm] fetalstar: <mgbt> What you can say about double meh control? (I control robot, my friend is shooting) ?
  227. [1:15pm] fetalstar: <mgbt> Can we customize our ship?
  228. [1:15pm] fetalstar: <mgbt> If the game will be available on Steam, will be achivments there?

  234. [1:15pm] Rho_: ship customisation, most likely to a degree
  235. [1:15pm] Rho_: you'll probably be able to paint it different colors, have different color schemes, attach decals
  236. [1:16pm] Tiy: In terms of mech control, we're still looking into if you'll be able to pilot mounts with your friends. It's a technical challenge, but hopefully one we can overcome

  247. [1:17pm] Tiy: Crafting is rather different in this game to anything else. NPCs you rescue will have knowledge of certain plans and blueprints.

  261. [1:18pm] Tiy: we spent a long time making sure the terrain was easy to navigate
  262. [1:18pm] Tiy: things like hills, can be walked up and down, no jumping requires
  263. [1:18pm] Rho_: yeah, that's something we're really proud of actually
  264. [1:18pm] Tiy: you can walk up slopes

  360. [1:32pm] Rho_: we hadn't really thought about it, if we can incorporate it somehow without breaking the progression, then great

  461. [1:48pm] Tiy: for example, calling an orbital strike down on the planet

  555. [2:03pm] Tiy: We wanted to keep the monster system relatively simple to start with. To see how it plays out. Most monsters can be trained to use ranged/melee attacks, some can be taught to fly or swim. They have inbuilt stats like defense, attack damage, speed, etc that will increase with kills
