There's a button you can press and hold that makes your camera rotate with the use of your standard ship controls. I think it's numpad 0 by default.
How do you kill a hydra?

You starve it to death.

Re: We're still not dead - here's a video!
That's what I said 😜

Are the power management controls the same as retail / page up, page down etc?

Will it release with FOTGED?

I'm hella excited.

Yes, power management is the same as retail and I don't think we're planning to change it.

Yes, it'll have standard FRED, FotG is using standard FSO executables.

Would it be possible to have some status update on the forums too? Most info since the 2018 "We're in Beta now!" got stuck at Discord.

Sure, I can put together an update for you.   I'm glad you guys enjoyed this.

Whaaaat?!  I could swear you guys were changing Engine code to achieve some of the changes FotG has!
Potato!

There has been quite a few changes to the engine for FotG's benefit and use, but all of those changes are submitted to the SCP master code branch, so that way we can use standard builds and every other modder can use the features too :)

Yeah that would be nice. The forum has been rather silent since Beta start roughly 1 1/2 years ago.

Good to hear FotG is using regular builds, the constant creation of ever new branches was getting confusing.
