I don't think they've even got around to describing how most of the modules in their big science jpeg will work on a mechanical level. With the exception of growing space weed, we've seen mock ups of that.

But how will science differ from research, what would the space telescope do, how will medical stuff work? No loving idea just buy the $900 jpeg OK? :iiam:

Obviously, it will be a fully developed, innovative and immersive science experience, nothing else would be worth of Chris Roberts BDSSE.

1) Write a space hypothesis on your space desk.
2) Establish certain assertions to be tested through empirical research.
3) Either hire researchers to do space research for your space science or do it yourself if you're space poor.
4) Discover that the research data does not fit your space hypothesis. Massage the figures until they fit.
5) Write up your space science article and submit it to a number of reputable space science journals.
6) Once the reputable journals reject you, try submitting the article to Vanduul space science journals instead.
7) If your article is accepted, repeat 1-6 until you're offered tenure by a space university.

Occasionally fellow player and AI scientists will challenge your articles, and you have to shoot at them with your space ship to make them issue retractions.

Alternatively, all the modules could just have a little time bar that makes you wait for half an hour, then says "space science/research/farming/power generation complete, gain 500 credits".

Ha-- well I really did need that correction because I'd heard the 30-something claim from somebody crowing on Reddit and actually didn't bother to check it. I just thought "wow- maybe they're moving faster than I thought."

So I laughed when I saw that was really half that, with variants filling the spread.

These windows are the worst because they are real loving firefighter killers. Like, some poor artist or programmer decides he's had enough and sets this poo poo on fire, and some dude goes in to rescue him, they are right hosed if they need to bail out. Usually those cages are on the outside and you just saw them off when you get there but putting them inside is some bullshit.

Although it doesn't matter because CIG strikes me as the kind of operation to put a halon suppression system in there without any kind of emergency stop. A new and inventive way to downsize!

Those desks are definitely dumb for an office environment, but $700 for a decent desk/table is not expensive. What should they have gone with instead? Tiny $200 IKEA/MDF/70s prison (although that would have fit the theme) desks with three legged stools?

think of it this way: the money they are using for those desks were given to them with developing a game in mind not buying super chic desks. if the money used wasn't crowd funded nobody would give a gently caress. the range from super cheap to the ones they are using is huge. you don't need to pay 700-1k for a desk and you're dumb for thinking any workspace needs 1k desks. least of all a company that relies on crowd funding

A responsible dev making an outrageously ambitious game would look to save money wherever possible. There is middle ground between Ikea MDF and $1k restored hand build artisan hipster desks where you get a useful and suitable piece of furniture without getting silly.

Also, $200 for an Ikea desk? That would be plush for Ikea. They start at $30 for the most basic. I use one and worst I can say about it is the white veneer is chipping off. Otherwise it fulfills its primary purpose of keeping my poo poo off the floor.

Well for one thing these desks have no cable management, drawers or cabinets. which make them pretty poor for general office use. Its purely form over function. But I think the issue is that this being a crowd funded project, you'd expect them be a little more thrify with their furnishings. There was no stretch goal for "buy us fancy desks".

It's like $3000 to set up a single cubicle where I am from, so I guess it's comparatively drat cheap. They are literally setting up desks with no drawers in a prison block with no internal walls/cubes. I don't know how much cheaper you can get.

In a way I hear you, quality desks are more expensive than people think. But them's the breaks when you're super late on delivering a project you begged the money to build

Chairs are the thing. Chairs are more important than the flat surface that you work on, and nobody has talked about the chairs because Herman Miller is a base standard for something you'll spend a third of your life on.

You don't go to loving restoration hardware for loving desks unless you're a New York advertising boutique.

Agreed, chairs need to be good. The desk is dumb, I have no qualms there. It's still cheap as far as office furniture goes, which is all I was trying to say.

Give it two weeks and they'll all have those lovely little plastic drawers on their fancy desks to keep their crap in. Also someone will have taken the wheels off Ben's desk because it skids across the floor when he bumps it with his gut.
