Tweets

Steve Sinclair (Creative Director)¬† shows off some more Gas City Remaster previews and teases a mining revamp with a very cryptically (read: confusing) series of thoughts. He also explains why Warframe updates require more and more disc space because they work additively. Until they do a ‘remaster’ update, they can’t shrink the file size back down by cutting the fat. They are looking¬† into fixes for this.

George Spanos (Audio Director) was recording audio for the upcoming KDrives via high speed Tesla and playing with knives in the Foley Studio for Fortuna.

Pablo Alonso (Developer – UI) is considering reducing the amount of armor granted by the Health Conversion mod. He also talks about the importance of properly writing down ideas. Oh, and changes to how Nezha’s Chakram teleport works were being considered, but he shelved the idea due to the divided feedback on his tweet. Twitter is apparently where you go to sign up for the balance focus group!

Rebecca Ford (Live Ops & Community Director) teases Tenno Color Palette Vol. 2 and clarifies this does not encompass material replacements. There’s also going to be a weekly Switch stream on Wednesdays after it launches (Nov. 20). Lastly, Melee 3.0 wasn’t shown on the Devstream because development took a new turn and wasn’t ready to show.
