Another week another update. We released a patch for the installation runtime this week that fixed the last remaining issues we’re currently aware of. The corvette cockpit has been completed, the final geometry pass for large station pieces is nearly complete, and work is progressing on final geometry for both the corvette and interceptor exteriors.

On the engineering side we continue to make good progress on the network interpolation. Hopefully it’ll be wrapped up within a couple of weeks so work can begin on small ship weapons. We also started laying some of the low level groundwork for our new UI system that will be used to build our HUD and menu system. If you haven’t seen the mockups yet checkout last weeks update.

Next month will be a little extra hectic because somehow everyone in the company has a lease that’s expiring and we’re all moving into cheaper apartments - except Kristian because his lease expired last month lol. Back in weekly update #30 we announced that the Alpha release would be delayed until early 2017. We’re currently planning on offering a free weekend to play the game for all Alpha backers to make up for it. The exact date hasn’t been nailed down yet, probably after we’re finished with the networking fixes, but we’ll let everyone know soon. That’s about it for this week!
