    I have grown quite fond of reading these and seeing what the community (or those who bother to post anyway) has to say on what features and fixes they are looking to see as well as hoping to receive :)

    So in the usual wonderful fashion I will kick off!

    Want: More auto pilot options
    Need: More optimization (not too much mind given the imminent code changes)
    Get: Promised bugfixes (and hopefully an update over the progress of the bigger features)

    Not looking for an eta on planets or netcode etc. just would be nice to know things are progressing smoothly for the devs :)

    Feel free to weigh in my Engineering Compadres!

    oh, for the love of god... is this necessary in a BUGFIXING period?

    this speculation thread is apparently just obligatory.

    Yes funnily enough it is, it's really just a bit of fun but given that the devs have a sense of humour and sometimes pull out updates everyone wants without telling us it could be interesting to see if anyone speculates something wonderful and it actually happens. Maybe should cut back on that negative coffee you've drank this morning :)

    My FPS dropped to about 20 in the last weeks, even with only few medium sized ships in my world.
    I will be completely happy with a FPS boost.

    Oh you too? I only recently (showing my idiocy) was told how to do the Shift+F11 for all the info to come up and I noticed my game was stuck hovering around 20FPS and would drop to around 10 when bigger ships were in close proximity. UPS is a solid 1 with the occasional dip to 0.8 when getting near said ships but I thought it was just my machine being naff!

    Oh, a nice FPS boost would be quite neighbourly indeed, some areas are dipping well below 10 frames :(

    I wonder what Keen has in store for us. I keep having this feeling that we wont get the things we want today, planets or netcode but that we will probably get something so outlandishly cool we wont care....well the reasonable of us wont care anyway =P

    Unlikely; we're in a feature freeze, remember?

    Yes I remember, I also remember quite plainly stating the Devs have a habit of releasing whatever the hell they want whenever they want so unless you know something I dont I will enjoy this fun little foray into speculation. Hell even Harrekin joined in positively and they have a bit of a reputation growing for negativity....

    @Harrekin no offence intended of course :) I welcome most if not all comments. Oh and indeed Netcode FTW, still dont play with friends due to certain issues with it :(

    Do you feel it deep down inside you? If so that could be something else.....

    But yeah its been rails for me funnily enough until I heard of Planets becoming a thing, then my hype engines went into overdrive and my eyes just kinda glazed over. Now I am a zombie space engineer....

    Eh. I imagine it's probably going to be a short list of bugs i've never heard about but every dead bug is important. Now i wish they'd just, y'know, make sure their fixes work; despite being "fixed" in that regard my LCD screens still display the offline-thing. It's not really a problem i find worth carrying signs on the streets over but i'm starting to make more and more use of them to get around my own ship because i keep losing track of where i am.

    Given you create Trekkie ships to a silly size this doesnt surprise me....you and your NCC's, you're a damn menace!.....My LCD's only show the red X or green arrow and are locked on 1 or the other so I dont get the offline issue im afraid, otherwise I would share in your pain as I can never remember which blast door is which without them.

    Lets go with a longshot: A fix for rotors and pistons breaking randomly on a completely stationary old station when they are not even in use.

    I still dont understand what happened between when I left for mining and the pistoned connectors(litteraly just a connector on a piston, on a STATION) were intact and I came back and half the piston had imploded but half remained???

    I hear that! there has been like 1/50 of fixed bugs that I've even heard about/seen in the last months..scratch that, since I started playing.

    Seconded on the pistons....I had the exact same thing happen to me, I went as far as to power the damn things off in the retracted position....come back from a mining expedition 2km away and low and behold.....connector floats past my ship a I pull in to dock....you know its the sheer cheek of those damn parts as they just float past, almost giving you the middle finger as they start their journey off into the void.

    Need: New netcode would be nice. Having people glitch through (or get stuck) the inside walls of my ship while riding along in any speed above 5m/s is getting old. :)
    A brand new Want: I love the fact that we have the jump drive. But the visual and audial effects when using it is in dire need of some love.
    Get: A butt-load of bugs I've never experienced fixed.

    I think we will get bugifxes, with some rebalancing, I would love if they shared more information about planets

    I'm half expecting either planets or the netcode to come out on update 1.1 :) Until then it will probably be bug fixing and balancing.

    Want: fixed thrusters that make sense, wheeled vehicles that actually work, maybe planets....

    get: a couple of updated tutorials and some colour back on the refinery units.....

    Re: Pistons and rotors

    Just don't use them until they're fixed...it's bizarre that everyone knows they malfunction and have for a LONG time but still use them and then complain when they explode...
