Hello everyone! Welcome to the sixty-eighth issue of the RoVerse Development Newsletter, where we keep you updated on all the progress we've made over the past week.
This week, we've been working hard on quite a few cool features. We've got a close look at Skinny's new Capital ship, a release of Animula's RoVerse OST, some miscellaneous build work, and as always, some beautiful screenshots from Vedrakkerous. Also, we have an event announcement to, well, announce, so stay tuned to the end of the newsletter.
First up we have Skinny's Capital ship that we showed the in-progress photos of last week. Fully detailed, this ship is truly a massive vehicle of war, and will definitely make any fleet a force to be dealt with. This ship counts as the first XXXL capital, the largest capital ships to fill the skies.
Ved's been continuing his work with everything to do with atmospheric effects, with some more unbelievable photos that show just how cool this game will be. And not just RoVerse, with the right dedication, any game on the platform could be as breathtaking as these photos.
Skinny and WhoToTrus have also spent some time mocking up and building a security drone, to make sure that any station is as safe as possible. As long as their AI doesn't go rogue and try to kill any innocent station visitors, civilians should feel safe with such advanced technology watching over their every move.
Our other builders have been building more assets to spice up planetary bases, like these floodlights to illuminate the wilderness around your base. With these high-powered bulbs set up, you won't miss a single enemy approaching your base, or you can set up a wild rave out in the darkness. It's all up to you!
Robust has been working on designing his own naval ship. I can't wait to sail it around those vast uncharted seas.
We are happy to announce that Animula has released the RoVerse Soundtrack for your enjoyment! We've been holding on to these for the past few weeks, making sure they were perfect. And now the time has come for everyone to be able to enjoy these awe-inspiring songs. And be sure to nominate him and RoVerse for the Best Original Soundtrack in this year's Bloxxy's!
You can enjoy the soundtrack here:
You may have been wondering what happened to the Dogfight Alpha Capital Update that we talked about a few weeks ago. I'm here to say that we have not stopped working on it, it's just taking a bit longer than we first expected to perfect everything. We don't want to release an unfinished or buggy game just to meet a deadline.
To make up for this delay, we're happy to announce that we will be hosting a Dogfighting Tournament to find the best pilot and team of pilots in the galaxy! You can sign up below for either the 2v2, 4v4, 8v8 challenge, just have your Roblox usernames handy.
We'll have more information about the date of the tournament soon.
Each week we compile a Q&A section here whenever there are any new questions posted on the RoVerse Community group wall or in the Community Discord Server. Be sure to join if you have any questions about RoVerse:

Q1: What will be the limits of the character race morphs?
A1: We'll have more information about these in the coming weeks, we're still testing the best way to do this efficiently and effectively.
Q2: Will you be able to travel at high speed within a system?
A2: Jumping between systems is the fastest mode of travel, but limited to between jump gates in neighboring systems. But within systems, ships can travel fairly quickly if equipped with a booster system, like the fighters in the dogfight alpha. Bigger ships might be able to travel faster, but they will use a whole bunch more power, and you don't want to slow down at the other end without any power for weapons or shields.
