Any news on this? Anyone know what is happening or heard even a rumor of a plan?

Nothing at all and JAM hasn't logged in either for a while. :|

I doubt we will hear anything until Jam is very close to release date.

Hopefully, he will give us the details of what he has done to the current version prior to the re-launch.

My worry now is that the relaunch of Ascent will be the end of its development.

The investors will want Jam to spend at least some time on the next title after the Ascent re-launch.

This may not leave much time for the further development of Ascent.

Hopefully, the things we find most frustrating will be addressed by the amendments made for the re-launch.

Last I heard is he was still working on things with the backer, but nothing was final or closed.

I am fairly certain it will.

I am confident that, if the annoying bugs are removed and the frustrating mechanics are fixed, we will keep a greater proportion of them.

This does not dispel my worries about further development.

Personally, I feel that some sort of corporation implementation would draw more sales and even more immersion. I will just leave it at that because there is a lot that could develop from that. Maybe at the start just have in game support of corporations, and, if at some point, you happened to come in to some addition resources, you could evolve it further.

I am not sure if this has been mentioned, but perhaps you could lower the cap on colony size to try to cut in to the hassle of loading and planning waits. I know that it can be quite frustrating to wait 5 or 10 min for you warehouse to load, or planning to actually process.

EDIT: A research queue would also be a desire

I think a ship editor would be a massive draw for current & potential new players. The "Avorion" game does this simply & well.
This also takes away the need for Jam to hire design. Just needs to release the BP's. Size would still be limited to max for class.
