In a video reaction to the Roadmap Roundup for September 20, 2023, SaltEMike expressed disappointment with the patch release and shifted focus to the roadmap. He found two notable changes on the roadmap: the addition of the ARGO SRV vehicle and tractor beams. He discussed the potential of the ARGO SRV as a towing vehicle for the scrap yard and expressed the hope for more functionality in future updates. He also mentioned the release of the military-origin vehicle G12, which he considered unnecessary and suggested it be placed in the backlog.
SaltEMike emphasized the significance of the vehicle tractor beams, expecting them to allow players to move larger objects, including other ships. He acknowledged the lack of purpose to towing ships currently, but attributed the implementation of tractor beams as a necessary step towards ship repairs. He expressed a desire to see more development around the scrap yard concept and its potential for income generation.
Furthermore, SaltEMike commented on the decision to release the ARGO SRV and vehicle tractor beams in a dot x patch rather than the initial release, speculating on the reasons behind it. He raised concerns about the potential instability that adding new features may create but acknowledged the inevitable trade-off between stability and development progress.
Lastly, SaltEMike conveyed his sense of disappointment and disillusionment with the development direction of the game, feeling that the developers were disconnected from the community’s needs and priorities. He expressed a lack of interest in continuing to engage with the game, stating his intention to focus on other enjoyable gaming experiences instead.
