“All old clients will be getting a "final" publish in the coming weeks. They will continue to run and be supported, but all new features and content will happen on the new TIB Expansion client only. Players will be free to continue playing the original game as-is, and also join the Expansion with their existing ships and gear. The Expansion is a new universe containing 50 maps with different factions and difficulty ratings, and jump gates connecting them all. It will also have new combat mechanics and items that make gameplay more interesting. There are some details to work out on how exactly this happens which we can discuss tomorrow (June 24) on the live stream at 5:00pm US-Central www.Spellbook.TV”
“Drones (which means "Fighters", "Repair Drones", and "Harvester Drones") will become an equipped item activated from a hotbar. The current system that has a little drone and fighter with you will go away, and Harvester items will become Harvester Drones. Some ships, such as Carriers, will have a lot of Drone slots, while others will be limited to 1. Their abilities will be similar to what they do now -- Extra free attack, repair self, harvest an asteroid, etc. Any Ship Class limitations on items will be going away, but some items will instead get Faction limitations -- There will be Wyrd-only drones, as an example, that will require a Wyrd ship. All ship classes will have a Pirate / Wyrd / Heteroclite / Standard variation, so you could unlock a Wyrd Shuttle that can use Wyrd drones. PvP / PvE is a different topic that will be discussed tomorrow (June 24th) on the live stream at 5:00pm US-Central at www.Spellbook.TV”
