Yes, the Devs/Matrix have always had an...interesting...approach to marketing and community coms for DW. It's frustrating but I just assume they have their reasons.

I imagine the pandemic has had a lot to do with delays in release of new material.

Good morning Folks!
I know we have limited information. Does anyone know if Eric and Team matrix are ok? Its one thing to not have any information due to work/family and lack of time its another if you are laid up sick. Does anyone know if the Devs are ok healthwise?

If the Programmers are 80+, they would be in danger, otherwise, if they are not chain smoker or have already a serious illness, they are safe.
If they have to sit home and can not work alone on DW2, they could sit down and write some text, just as we do.

Even with a flu, they could write some text and post pics.


Meanwhile, I play of course DW1.
But I am in an age, where I am close to need glasses... and DW1 is a pain regarding clear typo

This isn't entirely true as there have been young people even without complicating preexisting conditions that have died or suffered from serious secondary effects of the virus. They're seeing heart, lung, kidney damage and now blood clots in young people with no cholesterol problems that have caused fatal strokes.

You are totally right, lets keep this away from us here. And there is no black an white, and it is all about stats.
By the way:
What I really would love to see is the way Roger Bacon implemented Battle Stats!
Use the Bacon Mod and press Ctrl+S to see how the Ship has done so far.


What would be even better is a list showing what ships it has fought against and where.

Right now I just read Mission accomplished and it is missing even the info what mission it has accomplished...

Or like in the character screen,

also a better font system so that we even could change the fonts in ttf to our needs, I do not want more.. at the moment :-)

Hi everyone,

I'm sorry to keep you waiting. The pandemic has disrupted things a bit in our company as all our staff have been working remotely for a couple of months now, but Elliot and I are both well and so far our other team members are staying well too. I hope you and yours have been able to stay safe and well. We've been in crunch mode getting some final features squared away to start external testing and this has pushed back other priorities. It's taken longer than we expected, but we're very close. Once we hit that milestone, more information will be coming your way very soon.

Regards,

-Erik

Thank you, good to hear you are doing well and you are way further ahead than I thought.
Sounds really good, I am looking forward playing this game this year.

Can DW2 support double bytes or UTF-8? Support for double byte is very necessary for localization in Asia, especially in Japan and China.
Thank you for your work.

DWU already supports this. I often use kanji in my ship names. I'm sure DW2 will as well.

I was wondering, will we get the game editor in DW2 too?

Yes, there will be a game editor as in DW1.

Just a quick note to let you all know that a small initial alpha test has begun, organized from our veteran DW1 tester group. When we're ready for a beta test, that will be posted here and we'll be recruiting publicly.

Hey, very cool, that's good progress I'd say!
