So new episodes are up...should be three of them today.  Enjoy and let me know what you think! 

(I made a special effort to try to use all my amp gems)  ;)

Yeah, I looked, there weren't any by Teknotiss at the moment.  I'm sure there will be when the game goes public!

teknotiss has made quite a lot of (awesome!) maps over the development of PF alpha and beta, and he is currently working to upgrade his maps for the current build, ready for inclusion at release.

C'mon tek - we're all hanging out for your maps!

Nice.  I didn't see any unfortunately...but looking forward to it. 

Also looking forward to diving into YOUR maps Cavemaniac!  Probably tomorrow!

Ho ho!

You might have quite a wait!

I made a dozen CW3 maps, but not a single PF one.

My input on PF has been limited to:

'Can I please have this feature, Virgil?'

'Umm - is it supposed to do that Virgil?'

'Woo-hoo, early access to PF - I'm sooooo lucky!!'

Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.

Oh really?  Weird.

Stupid dual monitor screenshot.  Gah.  Anyway on the right...zoom in a little.  Little more maybe.  Who's that map made by?  ;)

I believe Cave is referring to that he hasn't made any custom maps; that map is a simulacrum map that he uploaded to the exchange (or whatever it's called in PF lol), I believe.

Ha!

Busted.

But Ninja is right.

I can use the sim to generate awesome maps (as can anyone), but custom maps benefit from the touch of an artist...

If you want to try one of my maps, try 'Needs Tweeking' - it's not too hard and requires a couple of different strategies which might make a good video.

Yay, correct assumptions about things that I haven't played yet!
Also, Cave, if you have any ideas for that "needs tweaking" map that you want to PM to me, that'd be awesome. I'll need somewhere to start from! ;)

I must say I've been enjoying watching you play the maps.  Especially glad to see you using amp gems now! :)  Actually, I can understand the whole "save it just in case I need it later" mentality.  I tend towards that in games as well.

Omnipotence doesnít mean the ability to do what is logically impossible. Itís possible, therefore, for God to create beings with the kind of free will that can choose between good and evil, but he canít also force those creatures to choose good. If he forced their choice, it wouldnít be free.

The uber-cool thing about how amp gems are implemented in PF is that you haven't 'spent' them as such - if you want you can 'release' them and use them elsewhere.

I've found, for example, that I need just a little bit of rock burning done, so when it's done, I reallocate the gem where it's most useful.

Having said that, I'm an upgrade junky - I rarely use the gems to ramp up an individual ship's performance.

Still learning!

I know.  But my brain doesn't grog that yet.  :)  I've only been playing a few days.  ;)

Nope.  I don't grog it.  :)  Or maybe that's why I don't get it...because I've drank to much grog in my life?  Dunno.   ;D

Here are some Screenshots of what happens when you have too much time on your hands...

The most interesting feature so far is the ship editor. You can really make some crazy ships with it! :)

CW4 hype!!
