    Is that a term for an approach to software development? I did a quick Web search and didn't come up with a definition.

    Not long after I first visited this forum, I saw a post from someone complaining that they didn't want to develop a mod for a game that was still in development. There's clearly a healthy modding community here, but I remain puzzled how modders can proceed without knowing whether KSH will add a feature that obviates, displaces, or conflicts with the mod they've created.

    likewise.
    I just get confused when i see a modders script.
    I can see the brackets and symbols and can see the basic building blocks that makes it work. :) but haven't a clue how they think this stuff up.

    Although i need learn how to fix my soundblock mods. :p
    last i saw we need to now use .wav's instead of convert them into a sound format. useful. it sounds quicker.

    That's kind of a different thing than I was talking about, though it does remind me that KSH has at least been good about providing information about scripting APIs, and other features that modders have access to, which goes a ways towards explaining what modders can do, with some confidence that KSH has allowed for them to do so.

    Yes. Things are worked on for a while until they can be implemented. Then the next shiny feature is added without the prior one being evaluated as far as GAME PLAY. Features are just features; not a collection of well thought-out systems that integrate.

    No, he was being rude. A.D.D. stands for Attention Deficiency Disorder.

    Simple. Most of them don't care. Heck, most of them would love if their mod got integrated into the game. That's happened several times already. Of course KSH don't just flatly merge mods into the game, they have to be reimplemented as proper systems, which is one reason why it doesn't happen more often, but it does happen.

    Well, like I was saying, I had forgotten that KSH *has* specifically pointed out resources for modders to use, e.g., the scripting API, and some example mods. It's a much friendlier environment than others I was thinking of.

    I'd like to see fauna on planets. Some friendly/aggressive animals that just spawn in the planet. They can be found walking or feeding. Some will attack the player, others be scared by the player.

    I think spiders could provide a great survival experience in certain planets that the player is willing to land. The current implementation could benefit from some improvements. There could be spider nests, different types of spiders: a type that only attacks players, another one that attacks players/ships and yet another one that attacks stations. Spiders would just attack at night or when the player gets close to the nest. If the player is able to destroy a nest he could get some sort of reward that can only be found on nests.
    I guess spiders could even try to conquer the entire planet.

    It is today!!! It must be!

    -Volumetric space beer.
    -Big scary bears on mars.
    -Space ducks (like space whales but yellow and ducks).
    -Square space bycicle wheels.
    -Comedically sized spatula for smoothing voxels, but leaving spatula marks on them.
    -Wood as a construction material, so we can make wooden space ships that catch fire when exposed to thruster flame.
    -Reskined engineers head to look exactly like Xocliw, complete with sunglasses.

    My guesses:
    1. Major overhaul to wheels & suspension and driving physics.
    2. Major survival overhaul with new blocks which we saw before in teaser: wind turbine, combustion engine, small refinery.
    3. Humble beginnings, tech tree, progression, reasons to go other planets and moons.
    4. Aerodynamics with wings.
