Dev Blog 22nd January - Broom for Improvement

Discussion in 'Dev Blog' started by mollygos, Jan 22, 2016.

  1. Original Post

    Happy Friday!

    We have talked a little bit about the re-addition of hunger in Survival Mode, which is exciting! There are a lot of different difficulty parameters - hunger, allowing players to beam up from underground, items dropped on death, how much it costs to revive your character, and permadeath. Regardless of how we configure Starbound's three difficulty modes some players will prefer a different set-up, so to that end Metadept has made all of the modes moddable. Here's what that looks like!

    Keep in mind that what you see there now isn't necessary what the default settings will look like in the final game - it's just how it's configured right now.

    In other news, this character is wielding a broom. Why are they wielding a broom? What's the significance of the broom? Where are they? What's going onnnnnnnnn?

    I do like broom-man, but I think the background is way more interesting. Also, moddifying gamemodes? Hell yes! Me wants!

    Although there still is the issue of unbalancing serverplay... But servers are not that playable atm anyways, due to extreme lag issues.

    They have expressed their intention on making characters server side and destributing mods to those that connect, so it is presumed that will rectify any potential abuse from client side modding.

    I think the real question is why that apex isn't wearing any pants.

    Have we really escaped the puns? I think not.

    Any chance of avoiding broom based puns was swept aside long ago...:nurutease:

    Also, good to see that hunger is coming back, but that we 'll be able to ignore if we so choose.

    Because the protectorate base is on Earth?

    /warp instanceworld:protectorate
     
  17. There is absolutely no escape from this Pun Hell.

    That broom wielding glitch in the background reminds me of Spike Spiegel from the Cowboy Bebop movie.
    Y`know, the scene where hes undercover and fights that lady while dressed like a janitor.
    Frikin love that movie (and show). Anyway, that's just what it looked like to me. What do you guys think?

    They are called the Protectorate because they were formed by the Humans. Now they are accepting more species, and they aren't exactly restricted to one planet with FTL technology. Earth is destroyed canonically, so it would be pretty hard to have a complete city there anymore.

    Who said THIS protectorate base is on earth?

    IE The military has bases all over the world. So why would you think they would have just one protectorate base?
