Can you tell the difference?


#1

I’m improving GSB a little bit. Can you tell how? :smiley:



#2

Yes i can . . :smiley:
[size=5]It looks like the awesome explosions from GTB have found their way into GSB . . . (for the people who have yet to play GTB: visual distortion caused from the shockwave.)[/size]


#3

I see what darkstar sees. And it is awesome.

#4

It looks way better in moving form. But I have other stuff I want to add first :smiley:


#5

Such as??? While the shockwave effect is very cool to behold, I’m looking forward to some new player-operable functionality thingies, also. Thanks.


#6

That is good news
Do we get a hint on what your working on ?

Excelent I love suprises :slight_smile:
Like Archduke - I am hoping that some of the suggestions in the suggestions forum are making their way into Cliff’s “holiday” activities

I’m working on some big scary feature, that I am determined not to show until it works perfectly. Once it does, I’ll try and take a look at people’s wishlists for extra stuff.
The shockwave and other distortion effects were already in gratuitous tank battles, which is why I thought it would be relatively quick to port them to GSB


#8

I’m hoping that the new wave effect will be part of a new faction…


#9

I just realized that he is viewing an enemy ship’s information!


#10

Yea i see that now too, He is using fed ships but the ship information is from the empire me thinks.


#11

Agreed. If we are all not just seeing things, I suspect Cliff has just pulled off quite a coup there (based on the volume of people that have suggested exactly this function).


#12

So now our designs become have become completely public and there is no way to try and hide or keep our designs somewhat secret? I am not sure I agree with that. Now you can instantly create a counter or copy someones design. I know it was not far off with the ability to count weapons and check shield absorption/armour stats but this makes it a little too easy to counter.

Okay. Now that tattoo is starting to sting.


#13

It might be something Cliffski uses for testing…


#14

I was waiting for a voice of reason to bring that up. While none of us plebians (incl. myself) knows for sure how cliffski accomplished what they saw, rather than eventually giving us an infallible X-ray view into enemy ships’ loadouts, there’s also the non-zero chance that the data in his screenshot is simply from some god-mode developer tool that none of us will ever have. I see no reason for dismay, panic or outrage here.


#15

It is indeed an interesting effect.


#16

Not to start a panic but the title does say Can you see the difference and Well that is something new so we pointed it out and people panic …


#17

Neophobes. :stuck_out_tongue:


#18

This is true, at the moment. It would be trivial to include it in the game, maybe cool to have a scanner module that showed it for ships with X radius?


#19

The scanner module would only be useful if it also gave the ship a bonus. Maybe as part of the tracking booster module? That would give it a use.


#20

what is with you people and “bonuses”
