i'm not looking forward to the new flight mechanic as that will entail relearning how to maneuver in space again. but it will level the playing field for everyone.

the caves are a very much welcomed addition, imo. the new scenarios they can be used for and the potential of discovering loot is very promising.

Test Squadron Breast Squadron? I'm not against female avatars, I think it is good that they will be in the game
However are female characters our number one anticipated feature? It does make me reflect on my own priorities.

One of the set pieces they showed in AtV was what appeard to be a mineable rock and they talked about such a scenario. Wonder if we'll get a mining vehicle or some hand tools in the future to accommodate that or perhaps we'll be ale to fly a Prospector in.

Not mine. I'm looking forward to caves, and the new landing zones in particular.

OH! and new contracts.

My slightly intoxicated mind is beaming with delight about caves and female avatars and the many possible jokes.

Given the vast amount of time I've spent underwater in my Prawn suit (Subnautica) I was thinking maybe the titan Armor could be fitted with a mining laser.

From the outset I've been wanting hand held mining lasers like the Bazookoids from Red Dwarf so I can keep a couple in my Taurus in case I stumble upon a seam of Unobtainium while out and about and also for personal defense... In Red Dwarf they actually did have a few hand guns in the series, but mainly just grabbed the mining Bazookoid lasers for anything from freeing trapped landing gear to fighting off Genetically Engineered Life Forms, Rouge Simulants and of course a giant vindaloo monster, so I expect a personal mining laser to be crude but effective and a good multipurpose item.

As far as mining goes, I don't expect it to do anything but blast rocks apart. Once the rocks are in pieces it will be then up to the user to scan the fragments and gauge which pieces will be most worth picking up or if a couple of trips back and forth to the ship to store the many fragments would be worth the time and effort.

lol ... first we weren't getting cities then we get cities. Now caves!

I love this game! But, it is still at least 3 years away from being finished. I love the scope and the vision, and I don't mind the feature creep, everything is getting better (well, except for the bugs). But...the minds of the average YouTuber is going to not be able to comprehend all this.

Oh oh, this can of worms. So, I'm with you on the youtubers, very few of them know what's going on, and a good many of them like to dramatize everything way out of proportion. When they have no channel direction, drama is a way of making their channel seem like it's working. But there are some legitimate concerns with SC, one of which you've touched on. I'd say it's a little deeper and a bit wider than that one issue, but that's a good start.

Edit: I'd also point out that I'm not exactly concerned, it's just something I'm watching at the moment.

They plan on never finishing the game. Chris said that he will consider the game out of alpha when persistence is fully implemented but after that the game will always be in a state of enhancement with new content, features and technical achievements.
