Dev news:

  • Frameshift Live #18 was on wednesday at 17:15 BST
    • Featured a pre-recorded interview with Tom Kewell
    • Deep Dive on the on-foot tutorial design
    • Among all the cool stories, Tom proudly pointed out a script he wrote where if you run out of ammo it will set a nav marker to an ammo box. But when he showed this the ammo box bugged and didn’t spawn at the nav marker.  Oops.
    • There’s a really obvious shot of the planetary shadows bug which they ignore.
    • He also mentions some cut dialog where an NPC refers to a thargoid ground site and Tom calls it a “thargoid imprint”.

In-Game News:

Thargoid Bug Report:

Bug Bug Report:

  • Dropping into a CZ instance safely damages hull. I’ve seen up to 250 points!
  • Remember to vote up the GPU utilization issue on the tracker!
  • Anarchy Extinction Bug: the SALVAGE mission SCAVENGER NPCs are still attached to local anarchy and not some neutral pirate faction. You can still be sent on missions by an anarchy faction where you have to murder that faction's NPCs to complete it. (raised by Naboo)
    • Previously reported as fixed by FDev, it was apparently only fixed for retrieval and protect missions.
