The Crew Is Back!

Hello to all! All crews have returned from offworld and all hands are back on deck. Daniel - @Polygonatron Hi Everybody!This week I jumped straight into making another pass over the game to figure out if there are some things that need to make sounds that aren't currently on our list of things that should make sounds. I found a whole bunch of things during this process, this should hearing what's up in Astrobase Command a whole lot easier! Dave - @Dave_Astrobase Hey guys, this week I've been working on a procedural main storyline hooking in from the intro. So...

Hi Everyone! Over the past week we've been focused on making the station and its characters more lifelike. We've also continued building on the story opportunities by further fleshing out the adventures the crew can have on planets. Daniel (@Polygonatron) Hey Guys! This week I've been working on having the crew aboard the station look at things and each other as they go about their day-to-day.
