    Haven't seen much in the realm of faction interactions. Is this something that will be explorable during the Alpha, or will it be reserved after the software is fully functional?

    Otherwise, really enjoying the content. Keep it up, RockFish.

    Heh, I already have an improvement suggestion: the shield and health bars for your ship seem very hard to keep track of. Considering the current HUD opacity/subtleness it would be much easier/nicer to have them around the crosshair, or at least in the middle of the top and a bit bigger.

    //Edit: Looks real good though, can't wait to play it!

    Michael, would it be possible to post the specs of the rig that the footage was captured on? With in game settings if possible? I'm very interested.

    • 3.5 GHz i7 quad-core CPU
    • 16 GB RAM
    • GTX770 w/ 4 GB VRAM
    • Win8 64-bit
    • Highest of four quality settings

    Edit: We captured at 30 fps but the setup above runs the game at 120 fps most of the time at max quality.

    That is awesome. Thanks for the response. I was hoping that my rig would be able to run it. And it clearly will. I am so stoked for Friday.

    Wow schon fetzig die Graphik. Naja noch anderthalb Tage, dann werden wir ja (hoffentlich) mitspielen dürfen.

    To me the repulsion/percussion(starting at 0:51) of the guns is giving me a dizzy feeling after 10 minutes or so. My complete screen image jumps left/right/up/down, once a gun is fired ... and the guns fires every 0,3 seconds .... :#
    Maybe the ship needs an upgrade a repulse compensator (like every tank nowadays has) or a gravity hole generator, which makes the mass of the ship virtually 30.000 times heavier, thus no shaky impact anymore...

    I had a similar concern sometime back, and I'm pleased to refer you to this thread that states: "The intensity of many of those shakes is still being tweaked, e.g. boosting may indeed have too much of an effect. I also plan to make the impact shakes dependent on whether you're suffering shield or hull hits.
    Turning them off entirely will probably be possible as they may cause motion sickness for some people when playing in VR." (- ROCKFISH_Marco)

    Is it just me or cant i find the release date for the alpha? The game looks super cool!!!!
  • NetworkpunkNetworkpunk Posts: 2Common Beta Backer, Customer
    The alpha was released in April. (end of April)
    The Beta is planned vor the 22th of June.
  • ROCKFISH_MichaelROCKFISH_Michael Posts: 373Administrator
    Where did you get the date for the Beta from? It has always been end of July and it is just an estimate date!

    I don't think Rockfish has put a date out for the Beta yet, and I thought it was July (and even then, closer to the end of the month). Could you link to the source?

    // Edit: Apparently I took too long staring at my post before hitting enter, so @ROCKFISH_Michael snuck in and sniped this before me. Thanks, Michael! //

    Sorry. My fault. I thought i've seen this date in the shop. Maybe my brain was a little bit confused with other dates and numbers...
    Thanks for your rectification.
    Anyway, I'm looking forward to the Beta-release, whenever it will be.

    Greetings
