    I got the thing working, for now. Is there any way to chat with you peoples in game?

    I uninstalled this.

    Right now I just don't think it's ready for public beta testing. There's potential, so I may come back in a couple of months.

    You can /w people, but I don't think you can make your own channels outside of grouping up.

    I've kept it installed and poke in from time to time because they are actually testing instead of giving out a demo.

    I logged in today. My character started in an area I don't recall ever seeing before so I restarted to get back to the starting city.

    Some days I just want to smack people with a rolled up newspaper. Or a phone book.

    I just can't see myself giving this any further time unless they achieve something miraculous.

    Even the armor turns me off. I just can't keep looking at those boots.

    Actually looks like the Arclight crash is what is keeping the Melding off the one safe area so far, the Crash site is where the game takes place currently. You can actually see the crashed Arclight on your map, it is way out in the Ocean though and the only way to get to it is currently a Glitch, not that it has much it is just a shell right now.

    I would get that far, but the thumper would never actually be deployed

    Well, its working now. Weird.

    I was able to get a thumper working by logging and restarting.

    Unfortunately now I am supposed to build another hammer, but I don't have enough coralite and have no idea where to get anymore.

    They really need to streamline the intro to the resource gathering and crafting system before they do anything else. The UI needs some tweaking too.

    It's frustrating since the basic shooting and moving around in the environment is pretty neat.

    Hadn't logged in for a week or so. Wow they upped the Chosen's lethality!

    Engineers are easy to level. Just throw down a turret overlooking a popular thumping site, do whatever, and the experience comes trickling in. Got to level 4 in under two hours.

    They ought to change that to such that you don't get exp for anything your turret kills unless you also hit it.

    That's not the best thing they can do. That means they will have to implement a "tag" program for all mobs, and that will cause chaos for everyone.

    More importantly what does it matter?

    Level 4 in just under two hours isn't actually all that fast, you could get that just by playing normally, and you'd probably have more resources to show for it.

    It's not really all that crazy abusive, honestly.

    Phobos (Firefall comm. manager) posted this today:

    Hey folks,

    As most of you know, we usually release patches on Wednesdays of every week. This week however brings with it a pretty major patch. Not only did we branch our internal build to add in all the new features and bug fixes that we've been working on for the last six weeks, but we also did a bug bash on Friday that cleared over 100 bugs from our bug database.

    All of this together has created a pretty tough situation for our QA team and development team to get the patch out in time for Wednesday. Rather than risk releasing a build that hasn't been thoroughly tested, we are going to delay the patch by one day and plan to release on Thursday.

    I am sorry for the delay. We try very hard to stick to a weekly release cycle, but sometimes it just doesn't work out the way we want it to. After we get this patch out the door, we will review what we could have done to make the process go more smoothly for future patches.

    Thank you.

    Hmm. We don't know what the "new features" are yet, right?

    Hopefully they get around to patching a game in there somewhere.

    So, this thread was made a little over two years ago.

    Worth trying yet?

    I am in the business of saving lives.

    It's definitely worth trying, because there is the foundation there for a fun game.

    It's not really worth playing right now however, because there just isn't much of anything there yet.

    I know it's just the premise for a video game, but the idea that really smart people who are capable of inventing FTL travel would be so reckless as to try it the first time while in low Earth orbit is just silly. "Orbital drive" LOL

    Is the game fun yet?

    The actual patch still isn't "live" yet. When it does, it will be about 3 gig download.

    It has aroused my ire that clicking the youtube video link in the launcher started Internet Explorer.

    I had a really good thumping team going, too. At least now I can put people on a friends list.

    Will the default high graphics settings relentlessly crash my game still?

    All the lizards got a graphicsl boost, a d the new spitting one is the business.

    Finally was able to kit out my engineer with turret and repair station. Feeling a lot morr self sufficient. Also feels like gear and templates are dropping more often.

    How do we access the friend list? I received and accepted friend invites from Viking and Dirtyboy literally four times in less than an hour.
