    They've decided to skip Oculus Rift integration and go straight for neural implants, so that you can feel that 400Kg rock drop on your foot when you enter a gravity field.

    Yep, OK, I'm going to stop now, although I could happily carry on all day. [SIZE= 13.3333330154419px]He certainly knows how to build up expectations doesn't he. [/SIZE]I imagine that this thread will have almost as many pages as the Lord of the Rings by Thursday, what with everyone wanting to bring their 'must have' feature to everyone's attention, before the alpha doors potentially close.

    For what it's worth, I too suspect that it will be basic AI, followed by Beta, but it could be as simple as they're about to publish the levels that they hired that level designer for.

    Well since his last tweet was the creators of space engineers and VRAGE engine I'm guessing it's a HUGE UPDATE to the engine maybe even a brand new engine.

    An engine that can handle 1000+ m/s speeds!

    I hope to final have stable speeds above the current limit, so while we are going high speeds compared to Earth based travel, we still go really slow in the grand scheme of things in space.

    Edit: Kuu beat me to it.

    Maybe, and an engine that can handle planets by changing only the area around you to voxels, and leaving the rest as one object who knows just a guess, it would be a thing that makes people happy.

    would be ultimate troll by Marek

    We are not traveling at high speeds even compared to Earth travel... Passenger aircraft do about 250 m/s, and that's with the conditions of atmospheric drag and stuff...

    Never underestimate the aesthetic value of a well placed fern. Or the defensive value of certain plants such as the cactus or the Australian equivalent of pinecones which can be anywhere from 3 to 22 pounds each.

    Plus, adding even a single potted plant could be the precursor to many changes to survival.

    And on speed I was apparently way off but that is still several hundred KM per hour, so still a pretty good clip but for whatever reason I accidentally converted for KM but was thinking in miles.

    See for me, this is why you shouldn't "announce an announcement". People will speculate and either be cynical about your intentions or speculate to the point that the announcement itself will seem disappointing.

    Though to throw in my own speculation they are either announcing a new game, or have been acquired by another company.

    I really want the announcement now, to be a picture of the Marekini...

    Because Todes is a horrible person for inflicting that on my fragile psychi.

    They weren't the only ones. I think there must of been about 3 or 4 other studios attempting to start a new project without finishing their current one/s.

    Is Miner Wars finished, BTW?
    And if so, is it a good game?

    Dunno about the singleplayer game, but the colelcted Money for some Kind of MMO I think.

    I'd rather they didn't try to go for an MMO yet, making a good one is a very ambitious task and I don't think they are large enough yet to do it and they almost certainly can't while also working on SE. IMO they need at least a few more games under their belt before going for an MMO, although they might be able to do something along that line with just some modification to the core concepts of SE, it already lends itself pretty well to being one with relatively minimal changes. Not sure about how much the engine itself would need to be changed though to accommodate the inevitable scenario of a half dozen 1km long battleships hanging around fighting in the same section of space. Because with a game like this, that will happen, maybe not often but it will occur.

    Probably a big "console-related-stuff-happening" stuff is comming. Like "big announcment" since going console is soooooooo good. :sneaky:

    For rather PC related stuff, I expect official beta date announcment.

    marek said in his first Twitter post as a reply to someone it's not Xbox related and since it's talking about the VRAGE I doubt it's beta.

    Ah, then the announcement must be that VRAGE has now attained sentience and has modified itself such that there is no longer any lag and that the speed cap has been removed entirely. This way it can distract the public while it slowly expands to take over the world.

    Just kidding, but it would be cool if at least a lesser version of those happened minus potentially evil AI taking over the world.

    If it threatens to take over the world we'll just restrict its accessible namespaces.

    or...

    I honestly wouldn't be surprised to hear they're being bought by Microsoft.

    [speculation]SE will be merged with Minecraft.[/speculation]

    I would say with the amount they're selling, MS may just be interested, plus of course its going to xbox anyway.

    Hope its something else though, to be honest.

    I think we can guess based on some things Marek and Keen have said in the past. For instance:
    1. When describing the new infinite worlds, Marek used the word "conquer". "Conquer" implies some sort of struggle or resistance, which we don't have yet, unless you're talking multiplayer. But I think he was hinting at something more.
    2. The request not only for player made ships, but player made groups of ships that look like a cohesive faction.

    I think everything points toward some sort of upgrade to the single player survival experience. Perhaps AI ships that will target or fight us. Perhaps more environmental obstacles. Whatever it is, I think it will improve the single player experience. Also, has anyone else checked out No Man's Sky? Now if we could somehow combine that idea with SE, we're talking about a SuperUberGame.
