Regarding the next update, if you look at the development patterns of indy developers, once they learn or implement a gaming mechanic, they usually like to try to apply that new mechanic multiple times in different areas to maximize added content before moving on to another mechanic. It makes sence to work this way as it saves development time(although not every game developer does this).
Anyways, so they now have tinkered with the mechanic to alter land vehicle’s colors and driving mechanics, that’s cool…
they also updated the land and the sea… thats cool too.
You can have multiple ships too now and that was also great…
But space has pretty much not been touched too much. The space stations have pretty strait forward designs and simple interiors, so do the freighters and all buildings on land as well as nada and polo’s anomaly ship. However, they did also higher a guy who specializes in procedural city and room generation) we also cant have multiple multitools yet or backpack types.
What seems to need an upgrade, or atleast an overdue change, and hasn’t realy been touched too much yet(and is also most easy to work on as they now have the skills and mechanics set up) is:
*interior rework (Procedual rooms, buildings, space starions, freighters, etc.)
*Changing color and mechanics of ships
*have multiple multitools
*3rd person view HUD on ships
Things they can add too, but might need more time to do is:
- more varied procedural space stations and freighters
*modifying ships and vehicles(such as changing the wings, cockpit, boosters, wheels, etc)
And the most obvious things they will likely do on the next update:
*more quicksilver items
*more base building parts
*more character customization parts
This is just a list of “reasonably possible” things but it is by no means a certainty. I mean, they can focus on the planets and animals on them if they wanted to instead.
I’m cool with whatever they do, I know they know what they are doing enough and I can’t wait till the next update.
Has there been any new experimental updates?
