    "This is your show, Lt. ... lead the way !"

    * Social interaction on the base ship
    * Pilot briefing
    * prep fighter
    * Launch  (and here is a pilot that actually looks for the signs of the deck crew ;-) )
    * patrol and recon
    * interaction with a salvager
    * Eliminating hostile fighter
    * Investigate debris field
    * S&R EVA
    * examine evidence
    * enter atmosphere
    * low altitude canyon stealth approach (liked that bit about turrets blasting high flyers out of the sky)
    * landing
    * gaining access (with some repair work)
    * Knifing FTW
    * firefights (neither side can hit a barn apparently ;-) or know how to clear a building)
    * Alien style crawlway hide-n-seek
    * prisoner rescue
    * getting an ally
    * preparing to clear the base ....

    Quite a bit of variety in there.

    Smoothness/FPS needs to improve IMHO.

    I like some of the details ....

    all the debris burning up in the atmosphere. Reminds me of "The Empire Strike back" ... "with all the debris flying around here, it will be hard to detect incoming ships .... "

    Also the hand signs of the deck crew.

    The military greetings.

    The advocacy agent licking her split lips, trying to find out if she still has all her teeth after that friendly chat with the slavers ....

    etc.


    Have fun

    For those that want to know where the player is while walking around the ship:



    The Bridge deck, Upper Hangar, Main Hangar and Argo Hangar are also there. Floor plans are from "Jump Point" magazine.

    If anything I am leaning to the disappointment side of the line. It looked good and sounded good at times but there was sweet FA gameplay, it was more like a 45 minute video tour with 4 or 5 minutes of interaction which is a shame because I have been looking forward to this far more than the MMO side of things.

    I feel like I'm left with more questions than answers, do you have to do everything the way did it, breadcrumb style or is there a bit more free-form to the missions/world? Do I have to go and talk to these people before I can advance or can I skip that shit if I find another way?

    It was my impression that this gameplay WIP video was deliberately done to be more of a video tour of things than a typical mission. Ticking of things you want to show - the ship, spaceflight, space combat, EVA, planetary flight, sneaking around, solving puzzles/repair things, FPS combat, social interaction etc.

    Yeah there's certainly that vibe to it. A game like Life Is Strange had more interaction and better pacing in it's opening scenes than this did. This felt like it had a huge amount of filler to make up for the lack of gameplay, distract or woo them with the shiny visuals and effects etc.

    I liked it, the SQ42 that was expectable is there that was something that felt like a successor to Wing Commander and this had its vibe.

    This version has commentary on the entire thing and answers quite a bunch of questions as well. @rpmcmurphy might be worth a look as the demo itself wasn't that explanatory of how the gameplay flows in the missions and so.

    That got the nostalgia flowing!  S42 is what I am most interested in. . although I did get into some online freelancer stuff and really enjoyed that as well.

    Starvault's reponse to criticism related to having a handful of players as the official "test" team for a supposed MMO: "We've just have another 10ish folk kind enough to voulenteer added tot the test team" (SIC) This explains much about the state of the game :-)

    It also is amazing to hear how much more they want to do as well.

    Yeah but it doesn't feel major feature work there, it's a lot of details to come up together to improve the gameplay flow. Improvements over FPS AI, more details and stuff within each 

    Things like FPS AI are still not in a place where they can provide challenging gameplay, improvements on things as that is what makes the gameplay more attractive, usually in alpha/beta we always notice how wonky combat AI's are and that alone makes the gameplay meh

    One of the best bits visually actually shows the WIP in the clouds, based on the volumetric stuff that is part of Amazon's work for LY.

    Excited to see what they do with it once they get to the point to work on gas giants as some like Crusader have landing zones, the view would be great that likely so haha
