      Hey that's me!

      For some reason I thought you had to be right next to the instrument panel in order to pull up the driving sphere. Didn't realize you could just point and bring it up at any time, makes driving so much easier.

      Looks like there was an update last night after we played. The game is pretty rough in areas and full of bugs, but it's fun and looks like the devs are patching fairly frequently.

      Will play some more this weekend gg.

        I felt some VR wooziness after last night's games. There is something very disorienting about this game.

          I bet that's why the devs didn't give ability to rotate your ship.

          Also was your texture quality set to low? Could be wrong but they look washed out in the video, might want to check video settings.

          I was watching the vid on my monitor, and it was very disorienting.

        ...and yes I was lying on my back blind firing over the ledge with dual shotguns like a total pansy. No shame in my game.

        i couldn't even figure out how to drive the one time i played. Can you drive and shoot at the same time?

          Yes, you have to have on hand on that drive mechanism and one with a gun.

          You should load up a private server and screw around. Also I guess you get points for dumping all your scrap into the little tube on your ship. Didn't know that.

            Don't you build defenses with scrap too?

              Yeah I think you choose between adding scrap for defense or using them for points? Not entirely sure. The game needs a better tutorial or new player experience that's for sure.
