    I really like a lot of what youre suggesting here. Though I am of the opinion that great variety of builds and deep customization can be achieved without the need for so many resource rarities.

    I'm not shy about being sex-positive. I think people know that about me. But anything like that will be optional and tasteful.

  10. Thread: How Will Ember Stay True to the Vision Where Firefall Didn't in General Ember Discussion

    Just about every forum for just about every game has a bunch of conflicting feedback. It's the nature of the beast.
    That isn't the source of the problem. It's a matter of cause verses symptom.
    When those in charge of development are clear and unified on the vision internally the outside feedback has a more measured impact. But when those in charge are split or at odds with each other on what to do then outside feedback can be very disorienting and lead to strange changes.

    EDIT: aaaaand grummz just made it abundantly clear that in house was where the issue was......heh. Ninja'd.

    To be honest, I had a hard time getting the upper mgt to go with my ideas. There was an internal struggle between doing something new (which is hard) and doing WoW with guns. You can see who won in the end.

    I was very much a proponent of being hands off at the time, and for the last year of FF dev I was away fighting The9 constantly on other issues.

    This time i'm going to remain on the ground level and shop floor and always be present to guide the vision on a daily basis. When we are small that's easy enough. If we get large that means hiring a President to run the business side of things so I can remain focused.

    New Update: HTTPS is from now on enforced, insecure HTTP is now forcefully redirected to secure channels.

    (And not just for forums but the entire domain.)

    Thank you. Many email hosting providers give option for 2-step verification, but at increased security you are also increasing complexity and potentially risk loosing access yourself. Of course most experienced IT users don't have problems, but it's something casual users don't do. So even though ideally everyone should be in control of their own security, we should also make every effort to help protect users who don't have such a strong grip.

    The Thumper will be more animated, shifting its drilling spot and pickup resources that pop out with its claw arm. The storage container starts off as the THMPR "landing shell" and re configures itself to be an anti-grav resource container that floats and is magnetically leashed to the THMPR as it travels back.

  30. Thread: Grinding in General Ember Discussion

  31. Grummz

    Grummz Administrator Ember Dev

    I agree that fewer resource types are better and that FF had WAY too many. I only see one or two dozen types at most.

    As for units, that's hard. For gameplay reasons its very limiting to keep mass and amount realistic while still making a fun system. Its a bit of suspension of disbelief required here for the sake of gameplay. But yes, Firefall numbers were silly in that regard.

    Grinding. I think that once you see how we put a progression of encounters into T.H.M.P.R. encounters, that there will be a lot we can do with just that encounter alone. Not sure why those other mission in FF used fixed locations, it was never the intent. Ember events can occur anywhere they make sense and not in the same places.

  32. Thread: Remember all the Frames we could've had in General Ember Discussion

  33. Grummz

    Grummz Administrator Ember Dev

    To be honest I haven't sat down to design anything about the progression system. But my personal tastes have been tiers and frames as "shells" that affect what upgrades you can put in them. Think racing games. Honda's get some upgrades, Ferraris get more options, dedicated race cars get even more. So a tier system could unlock those "shell" frames. BUT, I've no idea right now. Need to put a lot of thought into this.

    Also pointing out we have an update on http://www.crixa.io/emberthgame for T.H.M.P.R. orthographics. Formal updates on the game will be posted there, so pls bookmark it.

    Yep. Those will be replaced by corporate logos of fictional companies in the game. Or maybe nVidia will let us put a logo on it. Reaper Teams are sponsored by corporations for a stake of the "minings"

    New Update: Cloudflare service has been successfully deployed and https protocol should be working for everyone (you can tell by a green padlock next to address bar). Please note there is no permanent redirect to it as of yet as part of testing grace period. You can switch to it manually by changing the http:// to https:// or just click "Home" in the navbar.
