    Heh.

    I'm guessing it's coming soon.

    Uber has said that Lobby Kicking will likely be in the next update. I'm also guessing that the new Orbital zooming will be implemented as well, since it was so close to being done last time. An Uber employee also said he finished completely redoing a section of code which will have huge performance improvements, so I'm guessing that will also be in the game.

    Uber's been talking about their upcoming builds more lately.

    Wonder what else there will be.

    Oh yeah. There's also probably going to be a server update preventing us from playing larger games. :-/

    I wish they'd at least up it to 15.

    You can already have 18 player team games (although it's unfair for most of the teams)

    The games that are that large are due to a UI hack. Players manually went in and changed the limitations since the player caps are only in the UI – so the Server just runs with it. However, Uber doesn't like that – server load balancing hasn't been implemented yet, so they're going to have server checks to prevent larger games for the time being.

    Without UI hacks, you can have 18 player team games.

    Why....... the situation where the other player had a planet completely covered in umbrellas is incredibly uncommon..

    Burntcustard was telling us a few hours ago that he was working on them - which concerns me. lol

    Hopefully they will be soon.

    Why is there no "double like" button?

    So will these work throughout the whole system, or just between planets orbiting each other?

    We don't know. I'm guessing just within orbits.

    Honestly, I feel that it doesn't matter what order they add things in. It's another step towards the final product. Don't forget that primarily the job is to finish the game, and not to make the beta period super fun. That's just a side-effect. Whatever gets added in, we'll test the hell out of it and so we helped.

    The interaction between the devs and the community has been really nice lately.

    I second this.

    They've been talking to us a lot more and responding to our feedback.

    I love it when they tell us they've made a decision based on community feedback or community suggestions.

    I love how we consider a one phrase answer a "decision based on community feedback or community suggestions."

    I find it hilarious.

    Never had a developer be so vague and not have someone up in arms about it. +10 for Sorian. Cookies are next.
