Q: How is the super space project doing? Does it exist? Schubert: Oh, it exists. Hickman: I was actually playing what you're talking about yesterday, running through the prototype demo. I wish I could give you details. It's great. It's a departure from our current space game. We have a team dedicated to working on it. But it is far out in the future. You won't hear anything about it any time soon. Schubert: It is under wraps. It is a lot of fun. It's definitely not anything we've shipped in the original product.

Why continue to keep the same rail space mini-games most players hate?

I'm sure BioWare has heard/ seen the many comments against the way space is now. Yet instead of spending time working to change it to a free roam, dog fighting pvp space where players actually control their ships, they're now adding more of the same type missions. Then heroic space missions where you need new ship items just to compete and their prices are ridiculously high.

At this point and time BioWare is desperate just to keep the small current amount of players they have and instead of trying to lure more players in, they continue on their same path.

Makes little or no sense whatsoever.

Not really, in a train you can change your speed and stop.

Not even in TOR.

I was fairly satisfied to read that, too. Anything more innovative than what we currently have will be BETTER than what we have. For now, my hunger is abated.

No you didn't mention the proton torpedo hits. Did we mention that no one has proton torpedoes because they've been broken.....well since release?

I don't mind space as it is in TOR, never did, but hell when I read that proton torpedoes would likely be required for these missions I just got scared.

I do hope that they fixed them because the way they worked made them completely useless.

How accurate is this information?
For me I can wait for a full JTL if I know for a fact they are indeed working on a swtor version of it, but what drives me insane is lack of information. Say a Developer comes on and says here we have some space heroics for our current space rail shooter, but we are still very much working on a complete overhaul of the space setup. My posts would hold a entirely different tone. From one of anger to one of Ok well they are still working on a JTL version of swtor, so ill just have to be patience. Lack of word on this subject is just not cool, and frustrating.

I loved space missiosn at the beginning but realized they were mostly for immersion. They worked well in that respect but it was something I didn't want to repeat over and over and over. I don't do them at all on my alts because they're not very practicle in it's current state. Anything to add mroe interaction and replay value would be nice.

Bwahahaha this is my favourite part in the Blog

"The vastness of space. Mostly unexplored, yet teeming with life and possibilities.

Many spacers enjoy the serenity of the stars, the peace of floating through the Unknown Regions, wondering if they’re seeing events and phenomena never before witnessed by intelligent life.
"

What vastness?? What floating?? That vastness consits of 4 different locations and that floating is driving on rails. Please stop trying to sell lead as gold. Make a real space combat or just let it be and fix the bugs. My companions lightsaber is still sticking through her body when it is holstered, Taxi disappears in mid flight,

Give us more mini content. Nar Shadaa has casinos with no purpose, all the slot machines with no use. Put in mini games. Then you have chairs, stools, benches everywhere but you cant sit on them?? Give us pod racing. So many things that could make this game better and all you guys give us is some polished old content.

Are the devs really lack that much imagination?
