10 For the Chairman Episode 54
(Citizen Star News) - by Citizen Ed - 2015-02-23 - After showing off Ben's Wing Commander helmet, Chris gets down to answering some questions.
Q1 - General Jack Oniell - 2:14 - Password coded hangar doors; Allow private rooms even while inviting people into the hangars.
A - Yes! Part of the longer term goals. Not expecting that for the beginning of the social module but definitely part of the GOSt system, Game Object State. Doors may have a few different methods attached to them, pass codes or biometrics to name a few.
Q2 - Furious - 3:50 - When someone visits your hangar can they hear your music?
A - Currently runs off the hard drive. So unless they change something no. Will check on that. Not sure about the long term plans of that.
Q3 - Raytheon - 5:05 - Radiation interfering with readings; Sun at my back?
A - Long term, yes. Large celestial objects will have the potential to interfere with sensors. Not sure about sun at the back, but potentially, yes.
Q4 - Xneon - 6:10 - Military/Civilian grade gear
A - Will be different. Military grade will be harder to get. Not sure were law enforcement will be.
Q5 - Nostromo1877 - 7:05 - Waste Management career
A - Outside of the Reclaimer/Salvage not really. Could potentially be hauling contracts for garbage or scrap.
Q6 - Bucurel - 8:12 - Weapon racks on larger ships
A - Probably won't be able to change loadouts on the ships on the fly. People on the ships would have access to weapons locker.
Q7 - Kaputtmachaa - 9:27 - Sim pods on large ships
A - Pretty good question. On the Bengal or capital ships, you'd think so. Pretty cool idea. Will take that up with the gang.
Q8 - Harper - 10:13 - Pets & Vets
A - Animals will take damage, not sure there will be a whole veterinarian profession or NPCs.
Q9 - Tokomi - 11:23 - Realistic ballistics with gravity
A - Full physical modelling of projectiles. Changing over from a Damage point system. Wind and gravity will all be modeled in. Different weapons may throw a projectile at different velocities which should make a difference. (Barrel length is a major factor in this with real weapons - Ed.) Are doing a close simulation rather than a "raycast".
Q10 - Captain Jackson - 14:04 - Limitations for guests on board; Life Support and CO2 Levels
A - Not sure will necessarily limiting on those factors, maybe. Some instancing limitings. What happens when you pack up a Redeemer full of marines like a clown car? We haven't figured it out yet.
