With Beta comes a larger focus on polish and content, and we’ll start early on with adding proper modding support with a stable API, and we’d love all input we can get on this from the modders out there. We’ll also add some kind of non-intrusive narrative to the game to help drive the game experience early on, and to provide some kind of late game goal. There will be a bigger focus on testing and stability as well, with more time between updates.
I'm glad it's not there yet. He should focus on bringing the server performance back to how it was before the last few updates before occupying all his time with coming up with a goal that many players will probably ignore.
