    Great news :) Thanks whoever told the devs to try that ;)

    I'll have a practical question though, from Talung (streamer) that is wondering if there is/ will be some kind of NDA on ths test squad content. He'll presumably want to stream. I remember I was able to see some streams from early versions on Twitch already so I would presume it's a no NDA agreement, but if there could be an official word from the studio (maybe a note in the actual blog article ?) would be perfect on this !

    Oh sounds exiting. Almost like a new game mode. Chase the Bugs (tm)! Good initiative :) Everyone wins.

    Do you accept numnuts with below specs lappy? The advantage are that I can detect a bug faster than I can even think, and spot design flaws 5kms away.

    Regardless thanks to everyone that will sign up!

    Sometimes to find bugs you need low end and high end computers, I would say the only requirement is a real dedication and want to help the game find all bugs before new content release.

    "Thank you for taking the time to apply for Hellion Testing Squad, we will review your application and invite you to the Squad! "
    Under the current text that you get for completing the survey it's implied that the person 100% will be invited, if this was not your intent please reword the statement to avoid user confusion.

    Do you accept numnuts with below specs lappy? Oh come on Thor we all know that you are directing that comment it me again. Well im not only thick skinned i am also thick.


    I will try applying ZG and i have a list of excuses already hand written for when i get rejected. I can cope with rejection in real life i get it every day.

    lol try living in a country where no one speaks English. I get rejected automatically each time I walk out the door haha.

    Watching some hellion youtube videos, funny how players with highend rigs experiencing frame drop 50-15fps did not notice the culprit bug, like the particle effect. They only did a relog way after scanning, being a victim of the "Purple Cloud of Death" not understanding why. On my computer I was 0fps after scanning.

    Being below specs does have other advantages. I detect nearby players from lagging. So I sorta have my own biological entity detector :)

    No Thor probably not but you may be lucky enough to get shot by a SDS ‘Trident’ automated sentry gun.

    doing some further experiments over here and still undecided whether i should signup. This book cover became pertinent other than its testing weight.


    Star Navigators

    will be your names for the duration of this project =]

    Remember: You are unique, intelligent and true. You are curious, aware and true.

    Many thanks to all those who will dedicate parts of their lives testing this beautiful piece of software <3

    I did. I was going to be fighting with the ship engines anyway, either with this version or the beta one, I have a fixation with them :blush:

    I've applied for this and would love to get involved. I'm a twitch streamer too and part of a stream team, so its possible more of us could want to stream the game too.
