(Citizen Star News) - 2015-02-28 - Thanks to /u/MrHerpDurp for capturing this chat conversation with CIG Technical DesignerMatt Sherman (the Dev who discussed ship balance in Around the Verse Ep 33). Also thanks to /u/H3ssian who transcribed the chat screen shots.

We can see that there are some very significant balance changes and bugfixes going into this impending next major release. Fixing weapon mounts to prevent oversized weapons from being placed there being a major one:

  • 1: CIG Matt Sherman, The Monoboat super hornet loadout is pretty much going away in 1.1 All the longstanding mount/size issues are getting cleaned up, so possible guns are going to actually start reflecting the ship specs more.

  • 2:CIG Matt Sherman, REC is happening in 1.1, but we haven't confirmed a set release for when melting VD items could be possible since that system is still in the works.

  • 3:CIG Matt Sherman, @Stoic: Mount points on ships are getting cleaned up because currently, mounts are letting people equip larger guns than intended to different hard-points. The biggest change is going to be a ships loadout will more accurately reflect the size-limits noted on the ships-specs.No more loading s2 weapons on a s1 Canard and the likes.

  • 4: Question. So no class 2a or 2b size 2 gimbal mounts that can mount size three weapons? Cig Matt Sherman: Those mounts should all be removed in 1.1 and replaced

Weekly wrap up; Show notes for broadcast on The Base Friday Night Show.

As a note... a difficult show. We were all dealing with the passing of Leornard Nimoy and a little low energy. So apologies if we are not at our best.

But there are great things going on in Star Citizen and worth checking into. Show notes beyond the jump...
