    We streamed today! Watch Jon and Brad talk about the beta build as “Mad Man” Mike plays against some of the guys in the office. We cover a ton of different topics, including:
    • Metal spots and overall game balance
    • Planet smashing and orbital play
    • Core strategy, resource management
    • Plans for future content: Galactic War, clans, tournaments, and lobby options
    • And much, much more

    about the question about icons under fog of war. i didnt watch the stream live, but I wanted to note, that on big grey planets (scale 4, rocky planet) it is nearly impossbile to keep track of "scouted" buildings, because the greyed out "ghosts" are so hard to find. I would imagine that strat icons greyed out like in SupCom would work much better.

    Whaaaa! I missed a LiveStream? This wasn't promoted as much was it? I don't even think I seen it on my Twitter or Facebook feed. Though it could have gotten buried by all the Thursday Fantasy Football news.

    That was neat. Of course, you can't hear the sound effects on the stream but the visuals look like they are getting along well. Really nice colour gradient on the nuke smoke trail. Explosions look amazing. And did my eyes deceive me, or was the planet lighting shifted to dawn/dusk colours along the terminator?

    Can't wait to see the death star and smaller laser bolts in action too. Get even more colour into the combat.

    Great to hear lighting / planet contrast tweaks are coming. I think some night based game play sounds really interesting too.

    Then that just leaves the current fog of war needing a different\better idea. The current contrast based fog of war is far too hard to see. Especially on rock planets. Not to mention with the better lighting effects, the current fog of war would detract from that look.

    That Stream was really good.
    It was:
    -long
    -informative
    -interesting
    -funny
    and the battle in the background was also really neat!

    Some good info.

    John looked so uncomfortable in comparison to Brad, so thank you for making those even though it may be hard for you. :)

    One thing was bothering me though... why do you energy stall and waste mass at the same time. Whyyy.... :(

    That was everything a developer stream should be. It would be fantastic if you could do one of these twice a month, for the questions and status updates if nothing else (though the game in the background was a lot of fun to watch).

    Keep up the great work guys.
