Hello everyone, here are the progress notes of the week 40 of 2021!

This week's progress notes include a large-scale look into the features that are currently in the works and their state of development, as well as features that have been completed since the last time. Hope you enjoy these snippets of the Starbase development!

Below we have listed the different states, and an explanation of what that state means in terms of development process.
Design: first phase of development
Art asset: done after designing of the feature, but can be done either before, after or at same time with programming.
Programming: programmer implements the feature based on design
Configuration: feature is technically done but a designer needs to configure it
QA: feature is technically done but needs testing. May happen before or after configuration.
Please note that the "Progress Notes" are different from the Starbase "Patch Notes". Progress Notes are snippets from the development team and what has been worked on during the previous week, and many of the features might not be present in the current or upcoming builds of the Starbase Early Access. Some features, especially in the design portion, can be subject to change as the development continues.

Starbase Progress Notes: Week 40 (2021)

The weeks shown in the "Time in development" column are only the active development weeks the feature has been worked on and include all phases of development. The time is rounded up to weeks, so if one day has been spent on a feature during the week, it counts. Therefore, the weeks should be treated as a rough estimate only.

More tripods concerns me because you can aim them so much more easily than any mounted weapon. Proper mouse aimed custom turrets would be really nice. Like perhaps a 'turret seat' that adds a current facing crosshair and goal angle crosshair. The temp stealing while owner (I hope this includes operators and group members) is away sounds... *chef's kiss* As well as proper towing methods. (Can we please get full precision on the translate and rotation tools in SSC?)

Hello Team :)
Thank you to continue to update us.
That looks very good but that also means you need more time to finish the moon features and you look also at working on the Capital Ship and the Moons feature at the same time, really awesome!
But, that also can mean both Capital ship and moon can be committed at the same time ?

Thanks for the job team!
Happy to see that the game continues to evolve and advance!

I really hope station blueprints are transferrable to another station to allow you to rebuild a copy of another station. Right now the biggest hit to a person loosing a station to seige is having to redo everything with EBM by memory

I think its good to remember that they have over 100 people on staff, which means yes theyve got plenty of man power on hand to work on multiple things at a time. And alot of the time "more cooks in the kitchen" could end up doing more harm than good.
