PostSubject: Early release of new blocks?   Thu Jul 19, 2012 11:55 pm

If you devs happen to get some of the shipbuilding materials done, could you release them in a Futurecraft pre-pre-Alpha shipbuilding mod so that we won't have to completely revise our ship designs? Iron, obsidian, and wool just don't quite cut it sometimes.

Actually a good idea. We could just give you 10 blocks to build with, give them names, textures, add the colored steel stuff to them, done.

You'd still end up redesigning your ships if none of the core functionality is in.

I just mean the basic hull components, like aluminum, titanium, tungsten, your version of adamantium, maybe some armor hull plating, etc.

Maybe turrets too... They don't rely on Copernicus, right?

If you want ones made from blocks, then yes. Yes they do.

So make the small ones that are entities. They don't even have to do anything, if they look like what they will and they can be placed like a block. I think that this plus maybe the hand weaponry would be an excellent place to start while we wait for Copernicus.

I vote for that. At the very least, whip out some prototypes.
I'll make it simple to interface with the engine, so do however you like.

I think that's a great idea. Building with wool, iron, and glow-stone really isn't appealing in the least.
I don't mind redoing my ship(s) once the mod does come out. But if we can at least make the ship look good until then.

Yeah...
We mostly design ships in order to practice for the mod.
I think we can practice the best if we have the materials and maybe the turrets...

Turrets would be great. They don't have to shoot, just for the looks of them, boom, fear me. Ya know?

Yeah...

So...

Any comment by any dev about how likely this will happen and when?
We don´t even need crafting recipes or anything!

Oh, and maybe some reactor blocks?
Engine-whatsoever-thingies?
(oh, man. I´m wanting stuff again...)
