I wouldn't be myself if I hadn't looked though Diaspora assets and tables, to find out how you achieved such wonderful effects.
The first thing that drew my attention were the scripts. There's plenty of them and they're doing very interesting things. Also, tables contain fields that are not even on wiki.
I'd like to know if those new fields are already in SCP test builds, and if not, when will they be? I'd really like to play Diaspora with shadows, and I hope you'll release a patch when deferred lighting goes to trunk. Also, I've been wanting some of these things in my mods for quite some time (weapon overheat comes to mind).
Another thing I'd like to ask about would be a launch and landing tutorial, or better yet, a template. Diaspora missions are too complex to reverse engineer, and this would help with future mission creation. A tutorial for using Diaspora scripts in mission would also be really helpful.
