    StellarTactics, are there any plans on trying for a GOG release? I'm liking what I've seen so far, so I hope you're successful enough to not have to rush to release.

    I'm hoping to release a GOG version, however, it likely won't be until after final release. I'm speaking with them about converting Steam keys to GOG keys (No DRM) when it does go on GOG. Regardless, when it does go on GOG it will be DRM free.

    And thanks Lucky!!

    Just bought it, having fun with it. You've got pretty much all my grievances covered on one of your posts on the Steam forums, so I won't even bother posting them here.

    No problem; it can't be easy having to pep yourself up after a failed kickstarter, so getting this far regardless makes it worth keeping an eye on! GOG also has its own Early Access now if you want more feedback, but that might take a bit too much work to keep track off as well. Happy to see it there either way, the more attention it gets the better.

    You mean the road map? I'll post it here for people that didn't see it.

    And fixes that you can expect in the near future.

    Dudes, Dudettes and beings of indeterminate gender,

    StellarTactics is on the show this Saturday. Feel free to add any questions or comments here (or tweet @shaneplays or email shane@shaneplays.com) and I'll try to get to them. As you know from past shows, sometimes I have time and sometimes not. Also remember you can call in live during the show at 501-823-0965 and talk directly with Don yourself during the show :)

    I'm on a temporary radio station change for 6 weeks so if you want to listen to the live stream during the show it will be at http://www.faithtalk995.com/ not the usual live stream link. Podcast version will go out the same as usual.

    Show is at 1 PM Central time this Saturday, October 8 (actually 1:05 PM).

    Start's a bit slow, I'll give you that. Entertaining, but slow.

    sorry I should have asked this before, any overviews of how the Perception attribute will work in game, and are the effects determines by individual scores or by the total group score ?

    All attributes are applied on an individual basis. So, attributes that affect the environment are determined by the currently selected leader. This applies to Perception, Charisma and Intelligence. This is the same for Skills. If you have a pilot with high piloting skills and they are in the pilot ship station, your ship will fly faster (among other things). If you have a team member with a high hacking skill, and they are currently selected as the party leader, their hacking skill will be applied when hacking security.

    Perception is applied to both weapon attack rolls and eventually to environment checks for hidden objects.

    thanks, I'm glad to hear that, preferring individual roles and checks over group scores (at least for certain skill interactions)

    You don't need to make it binary like this. It's not like "hover mouse over the body part" or "no specific aiming" are the only options. Fallout1/2 provides a great middle ground approach.. or a lower-fi option would be a UI/menu option to display a simplistic vitruvian man-type humanoid with the to-hit percentages for each supported body part displayed near it.

    I think that by fine aiming he means "hunt the perfect pixel for best change to hit" -minigame, where player characters gets a few percent bonus if you find just the right spot for the cursor.
    Specific body parts can be still aimed at.
    Personally I'd rather see a system where you would get better CTH against target by expending AP's (Jagged Alliance 2 style) than this "place the cursor into just right spot" -stuff.
    Former would make aiming into decision where player expends a resource (AP's) in exchange to get a better change to hit. Latter is just added routine work.

    Worth buying into EA, more than just supporting the developer?
