Purely single player at launch by choice.
Multiplayer designed in but not a focus at present.
Based on the statements about Multiplayer given in the Gameplay stream now available on Youtube.
Burrito of Peace wrote on Jan 26, 2021, 13:05:DW2 streamlined the interface. I just watched the combat video, looks 100x better than DW1. It's all 3d now so lots of visual issues with the 2d plane have been eliminated.
DW1 never held my interest because, frankly, it looked like total ass and the menu system was a redressed version of Excel.
Streamline the interface and I'll try it. They're already improving the graphics. Make it highly moddable with either YAML or XML.
Oh, and look at the ship design aspect from Star Drive 2 and include something very similar. DW1 had a kinda ship design aspect but it wasn't nearly as flexible or as interesting.

Cancel Culture is too malicious and hungry for me to take this stuff at face value. People just love to set fire to stuff just to watch it burn these days.
Cutter wrote on Jan 12, 2021, 11:51:Cutter, you are kind of right, but realize Canada and the USA have different concepts of "free speech". For instance, if the Canadian government interprets what you are saying as "hate speech", the Canadian government can prosecute. In the US, you are allowed to say whatever you want as long as you are not inciting or "terrorizing" people (screaming fire in a theater is not protected).With the profoundly disturbing power imbalances that exist in who controls our online speech, who gets to demand a moderation improvement plan from Silicon Valley?
And the stupidity continues unchecked. The government controls speech, and has since day one. Those corporations are not controlling speech, they are controlling their property as a responsible property owner should. If you disagree with their policies don't use their fucking services, problem solved. No one has a gun to your head forcing you to do so. Go start a competing service. Jesus, Mary, and Glavin! Why haven't these same morons been up in arms about film censorship? That's actual censorship.
Honestly, these fuckin' people, man. So anyone should be able to post anything without consequence right, because you know...freedom.

Yes Trump is still technically president, but he's also a traitor that will likely either flee the country or spend some time in prison.
The first amendment does not guarantee people the right to be an asshole on corporations platforms on the internet. It guarantees you the right to speak your opinion, free from government interference and oppression. It does not guarantee that a corporation can host a titanic amount of hate speech under the guise of "conservative views" and that other corporations have to do business with them. Parler is dangerous and companies do not want any part of a platform that doesn't even make a modicum of effort to police itself.

WTF. When the fuck does this end? Is Twitter that afraid of offending qAnon users?
I know trump is a big meany, but really, go get a job, get 45% of your paycheck raped for LGPTQ pedo-rights studies, then and only then come back here and post that. Otherwise, your just jumping on the cool trendy bandwagon from mom's basement.
Cutter wrote on Jan 7, 2021, 14:36:What issues specifically? When I did my big Threadripper build 3 years ago I only had one issue... for some reason my 1,500w Thermaltake PSU refused to work with my motherboard. Once I figured that out (and swapped in a 1000w evga psu) it was smooth sailing.
Well my new PC is almost done. Holy shit what a PITA the whole thing has been.
