Dev news:

Frameshift Live #26

  • Guest senior designer Tom Kewell
  • Talks about the concepts and programming on AX scenarios
  • Mentioned “unoccupied” escape pods as example of their subtle storytelling
  • Scripts could be “slow ambush” or “active attack” or could trigger when you scoop something
  • “Interdicted convoy” you can fight off the attacking thargoids, or buy enough time for the convoy to escape; either result benefits the war effort
  • “Repair convoy” fight or simply hold off attacking thargoids long enough to repair and leave and you benefit the war effort
  • NPC chatter is not just situational but changes by system state, too
  • He said NPC have the same sensors as we do so the “nothing on my radar” just means that particular dummy flew too far away and lost sensor range

WhErE tHe ChEeSe At?

Butterkase is a semi-soft cheese with a golden natural rind, very popular in Germany and Austria for its creamy texture, buttery like the taste. Its name, when literally translated, means "butter cheese," but the cheese is butter free. Since Butterkase can be sliced, spread or melted it is a perfect table cheese and it’s very good with a glass of beer.
