    Alpha Test Game 5

    Hm. That missile raised an idea - is it practical to code in a Seether-style "ride the shockwave" move to get extra distance from an afterburn started from the same hex as an unexploded missile or mine? Thinking evasion phase, or the rare instance like Odin is in, or of course mines.

    I see one of Ironduke's FoFs overlaid on Odin, targeting nothing - is this the same missile that just hit, or is this something else that didn't register a miss?

    Small gameplay things...

    A couple things I've noted that might help: -All ships have rotational inertia, obviously more distinct as you go up in size, to the point where I have almost a second between slamming the joystick hard over in a Longbow and having the craft actually turning at full rate. Smoothing out control...

    "I can't get lock! Evade until collision is implemented and we can ram!"

    Alpha Test Game 5

    Page 8 of the manual shows FF missiles with a 300 degree arc - any ship in that little scrim is a potential victim, with the most likely target being Mako. There were several FFs fired by Ironduke that likewise should have made a move for my ships or in one case his, and instead took no long...

    Not getting the message, but Odin is unable to use his remaining FoF missile and was automatically slotted into the "done" queue for the combat phase - any idea why?

    Alpha Test Game 7

    The basic rules mention collision possibility between ships in the same hex, am I missing where that exists later in the manual or is that not yet written?

    Thor lists as targeting Mako, Odin is targeting Porcupine 2 (being omniscient, this makes sense). Neither of those matches with their assigned actions - Thor should be fully focused on Harm's Way at the moment.

    Turn 18 EP mail shows that Odin rolled for tailing on Harm's Way as well as Thor. Doesn't affect much since they both made their rolls, but I don't recall submitting that tailing request and it shouldn't be possible given where everything is. Is it possible that this is a 'shared information'...

    The Darkest Dawn is Cleared for Launch

    The torrent improves with every added user, I'm currently seeing 700kB/s down but it doesn't look like all of it is easily available - yet. Jump on!

    More info if it helps: trying to submit an [empty] order with Delta returned a popup box with "Php Error: use Firebug to analyze. Contact Avacar to recreate this message"

    I sent that missile off to create an asteroid collision instance, if you would prefer that I don't poke at things that have a broken aspect already let me know.

    Alpha Test Game 5

    The FoF missiles fired by Harm's Way and Mako should both have had locks - Mako's on Odin or Thor, and Harm's Way's on Thor or Mako (depending on how you are handling IFF damage). We had problems with IFF earlier in this game as well, didn't we?
