Extrasolar / Re: Season 2 Kickstarter is NOW LIVE.
« Last post by Rob on April 10, 2015, 08:44:45 PM »
The blog post is true. Extrasolar has only recovered 6% of what I invested to build it and the game economy is really rough right now. An amazing opportunity came up to work on virtual reality at Google, so I seized it. As I explained in the blog post (http://robjagnow.com/2015/leaving-games), I'm still working on Extrasolar on nights and weekends and our talented programmer Keith is also still contributing, but production will be slowing down. Our top priority is a native mobile app, which -- who knows -- may draw in the audience we need to fund season 2.

As you point out, I should really know better than to make a major announcement on April Fool's Day. I should have learned that when I worked on the Potato Sack for the launch of Portal 2 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potato_Sack).

I just finished my first week at Google and I'm happy to say that I'm confident that I'll be able to bring you some super awesome stuff that I would never be able to do on my own. Can't wait to share!

Sure enough, your 1576 photos appears to be bogging down the system enough that it times out before it can return your profile. I'll see what I can do to optimize that query. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Sadly it still doesn't work.

But from trying other profiles, could it be that there is a limit?

Does anybody have a profile with > 1500 images that does work?

I can't access my public profile https://extrasolar.com/profile/45KLuw6UY5n7sE8cuxumQx

And neither can people I invited, they get the link but they can't open it.

I'm not sure if there is a limit on the number of tags or photos. The link used to work and now it doesn't anymore.

Maybe there should be another Kickstarter. As more people play season one, there may be more interest and funding for season 2.

A nighttime shot - I like the distance and barrenness in the image.



Hey guys, nice pictures all. I wanted to ask something. I am trying to learn different constellations these days and I couldn't help but notice the one on this image's top left side. Thats the Pleiades, right?

The one that looks like a strange V is Taurus. To the upper right of Taurus just above the poofy cloud is the Pleiades. Good eye.  ;D

Extrasolar / Post game comments SPOILERS
« Last post by StellaFrost on February 13, 2015, 05:32:39 AM »
I have completed Extrasolar and I found two typos which may have been unintentional.

[spoilers] In the last email from Turing entitled "What now?" the last sentence reads:

You, of all people, show know by now exactly what we're looking for in a rover driver.

Shouldn't it be: You, of all people, should know by now exactly what we're looking for in a rover driver. [/spoilers]

[spoilers] In the email from Jane Van Susteren entitled "Unbelievable" the first paragraph begins: I'm reluctant to give to much analysis...

Shouldn't it be: I'm reluctant to give too much analysis,

Jane's could easily be excitement though [/spoilers]

Those are the only two negative comments I have. There's nothing but good to be said about the rest of the game.

Extrasolar / Re: Any Astronomy Majors?

I work at an observatory.

I know that the view from Alpha Centauri ( our closest star system), would be virtually identical with the exception of Alpha Centauri A & B not being visible in the night sky and the Sun being just another star in Cassiopeia which would make it look more like a zigzag than a W or M.

Most of the Stars in Orion are hundreds of light years away so it makes sense that they'd be identical. Most of our nearest neighbors are red dwarves, which are faint and difficult to see to begin with.

Sirius and Procyon are the only two that are close enough for it to make a substantial difference in their apparent locations.

I personally enjoyed looking up and seeing the familiar night sky of Earth. If Lazy 8 feels they need to make a correction, I wish them the best of luck.
