    Good show guys.

    I don’t want to wade into the debate, but as a subscriber & original backer, I’ve definitely felt burned on several occasions (3 questions becoming 10FTC was my personal pet peeve).

    Ben L touched on the impact of LTI in a reverse the verse: he mentioned that Privateer (orginal game) had a 50 credit landing fee auto-deducted every time you landed anywhere. I played that game back in the day and never noticed it. He said paying for insurance would have the same impact. Makes sense to me, though I agree with Tony that a more robust/complicated claims resolution process wouldn’t be out of place.

    In general though, CIG seems dead scared of their own economy, probably because of the number of people who are counting on SC to solve every problem other MMOs have had with their economies (EvE is often brought up as exhibit “A”). There were a lot of questions about fuel use and costs cropping up with the Starfarer sale, and CIG dodged most of them, too. I shudder to think of the theorycrafting firestorm that will erupt after the first economic design post.

    Great show guys, always brightens up my Tuesday.

    Just wanted to say I agreed with Tony about AI controlled gimballed weapons. When you’ve got enemy ships moving like mountain goats that have been set on fire and your own ship handles like a startled gazelle on steroids, trying to actually land shots on target is quite a major chore.

    And if we’re going to have AI driven turrets, there’s no reason to have AI driven gimbals.

    Aloha,

    I wanted to add a comment regarding the LTI issues that have been swirling around lately.

    As a long time backer, I feel that my role is to help create what is shaping up to be an amazing game. I signed up to: help fund the development, find bugs, and provide input on game design. I don’t really care about any of the perks. And feel that the LTI issues have been blown out of proportion. LTI is nice but will probably be inconsequential in the PU.

    I understand backers providing constructive criticism. But I don’t get folks who complain about a pre-release game before the game is released.

    Keep up the great work guys. You are helping to make the long wait for the game almost bearable

    Mahalo.
