  1. nice show as always, thanks.

    and it’s definitely space bears :)

    also…looking forward to more activity on ES2 after this summer vacation.


  2. The Antarans are not going to be in the 1.0 release. They will be in the 2.0 release. What Nate read was a Design Discussion for 2.0 release


  3. I just want to be very clear that Remnants is and has always been intended as a feature clone of MOO1 and that is absolutely not going to change for the 1.0 release.


  4. Good podcast, guys! It would be great to see those BSG Deadlock videos.
    I didn’t like MOO Conquest the stars, don’t know exactly why…it isn’t a matter with mechanics or gameplay, just an impression, a feeling. Not “my thing” I guess…

      1. Thank you, FermionAce! Actually, I have seen several videos about it and I have also been able to try out the game myself. But I think a series made by explorminate would be really interesting. Greetings!


  5. Enjoyable podcast as always!

    Nate, I hear they really improved the ES2 AI for the 1.036 preview build. Make sure you’re using the opt-in before you try your uber game. :)

    I tried the Vodyani once and got immediately pissed off because I planned to use and abuse their starting religious law, which then didn’t work as advertised. In fact I think it was that One Last Bug that made me shelve the game for a while, though I’m still following the forums.
