Squadron 42 Monthly Report: January 2021
This is a cross-post of the report that was recently sent out via the monthly Squadron 42 newsletter. We’re publishing this a second time as a Comm-Link to make it easier for the community to reference back to.
What you are about to read is the latest information on the continuing development of Squadron 42 (SCI des: SQ42).
Thanks to the work of dedicated field agents and operatives, we’ve uncovered information on the Volt Parallax electron rifle and UltiFlex Novia crossbow, the Xi’an language, and work continues on all ground-based FPS environments.
The information contained in this communication is extremely sensitive and it is of paramount importance that it does not fall into the wrong hands. Purge all records after reading.

January’s general AI work included improving debug draw for the special action component that allows for a better understanding of which actions are available at any given time. Time was also dedicated to the support of Alpha 3.12 and 3.12.1.
Most notably, the new year saw a reorganization of the AI teams into a more efficient structure to encourage knowledge sharing and a more holistic approach to prioritizing tasks and goals.
The department is now split by content, features, and tech:
- AI Content create behaviors, usables, and other related content
- AI Features implement project features. For example, new combat behaviors and ship maneuvers
- AI Tech handles all core functionalities that require a more structural design
WE’LL SEE YOU NEXT MONTH…
