Reverse the Verse 2.15: Key Takeaways

On this week’s episode of Reverse the ‘Verse, Jared Huckabee interviewed Barney Oram, Junior Sound Designer and John Crewe, Lead Technical Designer.

Key Takeaways

  • Barney worked on sound design for the Sandworms.
  • According to Barney, they are putting a lot of thought and effort into the sound of glass breaking and depressurization effects. Specifically what it will sound like during a rapid depressurization and immediately.
  • John Crewe reports the initial Evocati reception of 2.6 was a mixed bag but CIG is working through the feedback and refining towards the 2.6 PTU release.
  • Once reaching maximum velocity with afterburner, it enters an idle state, using less fuel to keep the engines powered. They (CIG) realize this defies logic but the introduction or removal of constraints impact game balance.
  • Some Drake Caterpillar owners may be sad to learn that the bowsprits have no functional purpose and are merely aesthetic.
  • Conversations about cockpit customization are happening. Some may remember this from the $3,500,000 stretch goal:

“Turn your stock cockpit into your home with personalized decorations; amaze your friends with bobbleheads, photographs, dinosaurs, fuzzy dice, nose art, posters and many more cool options!” -CIG Website

  • The velocity of missiles and ballistics have also been reduced for 2.6
