United Mining Exploration Commission: A group of friends playing JumpGate-- "a MMORPG that launched smoothly, breaks from fantasy character setting, emphasizes PvP, and is the first persistent world space simulator that nobody talks about." ~Scorch

my priorities are going to be conflux, PR/bounty problems, and then the warfare system, in that order.

In the last year:
  1. PvP ships and armaments have been rebalanced.
  2. Missiles have been completely adjusted, and hitbox problems corrected.
  3. Piracy was added as a Registry Tag and made more functional.
  4. A Job Board system was added to help players work together.
  5. The economy has been revamped to be both more realistic and more player-oriented.
  6. Mining has been changed to be more relevant.
  7. The rendering distance has been made user-configurable.
  8. Splash damage was added to several weapons.
  9. Many old bugs were addressed.
More change is coming. Jumpgate needs to change in order to compete with more recent releases. Current plans include:
  • AI and spawn system changes to the conflux.
  • A complete revision to the Tag system for flight Registry
  • Changes to the PR and bounty systems
  • Contraband in the economy
  • New mission types specific for particular flight registries
  • Continuing economic changes and additions.
  • A system for equipment damage and decay through use
  • New social functions as Rank 50 powers/privileges
  • A factional warfare system and destructible buildings
  • Integration of squad management directly into the game itself
  • Squad based alliances and warfare

  • A general graphical overhaul
There is no set schedule for the release of these changes

Ah well, he probably will never understand the need to overhaul the n00b cargo fiasco, nor the jellyfish in core sector spawns fiasco. (former because it promotes "powerlevelling mentors" and themis $19.99 alternative; latter because "it promotes escorts and the name of ep2 is...") pffffffft.
