Visitors, Ahoy!

Today we had a nice visit from a couple of our Undergrounder supporters who happened to be in town...


...and they got to fly around in for a little bit in the current work-in-progress of the "Devil's Food" vertical slice!


They also got to see Pixley's ship doing cartwheels or something when he was testing out some new feature implementations- more on that later.


Here's a picture of our guests, Bitwise and Xyphon, with Designapotamus, Stormwind, and Pixley:

Then, as is our tradition... we put them to work!


Xyphon and Bitwise flew through Drakona's "Valor" map to test the flight controls:

Then both of them checked out the details in our "Apophis" test map:

Afterwards, the guys moved on to testing out various systems, like lasers and mining...

...and discovered that someone had forgotten to give the Wasp's mining laser a power level. Oops!



Our visitors reported their feedback to Wingman:

Then, just as our guests were packing up, Stormwind announced that he and Pixley had solved some issues with the netcode and everyone got to see the two of them facing each other down in a network game!


Then Pixley's ship started doing some kind of disco spin...



It was so great to have Xyphon and Bitwise stop by and I want to thank them for scheduling a time with us in advance.


Because we're such a small, focused team, it's very important for us to be able to plan ahead for visits. We love sharing our work with you and it takes time to get set up for these demos- computers have to be moved, files updated, cables run, etc.


I'm not sure when our next window for visits will be (I hope soon!); but, if you want to schedule a visit, please send me a PM via our forums.


Also, don't forget that this Friday Wingman's Hangar is streaming LIVE from the Celestial Citadel (well, Viewmaster's studio...) so be sure to tune in at 11am CDT (1600 UTC) on our Twitch channel:




Thanks for being awesome!


Fly safe,
