Hello everyone, here are the progress notes of the week 45 of 2021!

The first version of Capital Ships was patched to the Public Test Universe last week, so this week's progress notes also focus on Capital Ships as well and give insight into the feature as a whole: what has been done so far and what we still have in store. We hope you enjoy these snippets of the Starbase development!

You can find the latest extensive overview of all items in development, including Capital Ships, in last week's progress notes: Starbase Progress Notes: Week 44

For more information about Capital Ships and how to build them, head over to the Starbase wiki.

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.

Really looking forward to those screens. Look like great candidates for some sort of external camera views!

It feels like so much is locked behind inventory v2 can we get even a rough idea of how far out to expect that, as it seems to be one of the longest single efforts so far. Like how many 5ths does it seem to be or 4ths, 3rds, or even just is it more or less than half way. (post 7 of asking for full (or just more) precision on the designer translation tool and rotation tool number readout and input boxes. Relative nudge would also be huge)

It is great to see progress being made for a change beyond just hearing of potential. Though I still have to question why unrealistic release dates for this update were ever given out when only this much is completed by now.

Making you happy isn't going to be a thing, is it? They've already gone over that being a mistake.
