PoTBS: A Treatise on Tuning (Part One)

Posted Fri, Oct 05, 2007 by Aelryn

Tune, tune, tune your boat!

The latest Pirates feature takes a long, hard look at tuning-- and it's only part one!

I’ll tell you a little about the current tuning situation before I get into the mechanics and philosophy behind our tuning. Contrary to my expectations, it’s actually been quite a while since I did any intensive tuning. My priorities changed when we delayed our launch a while back, and I spent the past few months working on lots of additions and various issues instead of tuning. That’s because tuning can happen right up until launch (and beyond), but there’s a limitation on how far into development we can add stuff. So, I created a lot more ship variants and worked on raising issues to address problems in the game.
