I worked all week, made hundreds of changes, and tomorrow's Drox 2 patch notes might be 1 line long, basically "made map prettier".

While playtesting Drox 2 today, I was forced to change sides in a war while trying to get out of losing the sector. My former allies just didn't understand it wasn't personal that I was doing quests for their enemies.

Just a heads up, the price of Drox Operative 2 will increase from $14.99 to $17.99 later this week (probably Thursday).

I've cut over 400 lines from my Drox Operative 2 todo list in the last few days. That's progress, right?

I think the college I went to is trying to make people feel old today since they sent me a 25 year reunion notice this morning.

Drox Operative 2 is now in Beta! This basically means more polishing and fixes and less new features.

I changed the stealth race trait to work correctly on random, young races in Drox 2, but that caused an interesting bug. I just saw a Rizak planet fade out, so now we have stealth planets.

I'm finally starting to add race trait specific dialog in Drox 2, so that the young races will sound more unique (mature and ancient races will also benefit a little).

Reusing some of the dialog has been very interesting because the same dialog can mean very different things based on who says it. When the Lithosoid says they're hungry, it just means they want to eat soon. When a race with the Devourer trait says they are hungry, it's a threat.
