Looks like a plan, I can't wait to see some of this stuff. Although, could you push back the steam engines until after Marching Band is over, so I'm free when DW gets updated Tongue.

I am extremely excited for campaign upgrades.

I take it Missile Gauge is scrubbed then until further notice? I don't have any particular objections to this plan, but that item has been in limbo for some time, and it would be good to get a sitrep on it.

Looking good. I'm curious, is the dediblade-antigrav stuff included somewhere here or are you planning to do it later? Also can you tell what we should expect from the adventure update?


RE: DEVELOPMENT ROADMAP - Nick Smart - 2016-07-22 02:25 AM

I'll discuss each thing as I get to it.

I forgot missile gauge but it's not something I see as urgent.

Dediblade anti grav stuff can wait indefinitely unless Majyst pushes me for it.

If dediblade changes are pushed off Indefinitely then I wont push for Anti-grav stuff Smile The 2 changes go hand in hand in my book.

with the large scope of the game my guess is late 2017, but i have no idea what crazy ideas nick has so your guess is as good as mine.
