That I could get, except they have been able to keep up with the core stuff and have also been able to continue releasing Pathfinder AP stuff.

Starships are core. No APs in a LONG time. This forum is about Starfinder (and becoming about LWD's lack of support for it).

Bumping for visibility and possible comment from LWD. I am seeing more and more announcements for PF2 AP content will starfinder be getting more AP content or any more serious development?

That’s correct, nor any other Starfinder AP content in years.

Supply and demand - if not enough people are buying APs for Starfinder to cover the salary (+ profit margin) of the person/people doing the data entry then it isn't sensible for them to do the work.

(Now if it was available for HLC, then some enterprising users could generate unofficial data packs for those APs, just like was done for many APs for PF1.)

Not scientific, but a quick look in the activity of the SF and PF2 forums suggests that PF2 is way more popular, and is still an AP behind.

100% agree Just wish LWD Would be upfront about it. But I suppose their silence speaks volumes.

Hey guys, been wanting to pop and and let you all know we live, just been super busy with work for the holidays (but when aren't we busy, really). We've not forgotten SF by any means, and always try to get the main books out as close to release as possible (even if nanocyte made us question if we'd need to release Tech Rev in two parts lol, that class was nuts to code). Core books are always our priority for both SF and PF2, and APs get worked in around other projects and enhancements, as I've mentioned elsewhere. We've been doing some contractor training on the PF2 ones lately, since they're simpler to handle in the code than SF tends to be and they've got more experience with the system.

I can't really speak to the details of pipelines or projects, but that's the general approach that is taken.

Daniel I can understand that the core books are priority, I mean that make perfect sense but the Starfinder AP line is YEARS behind and there isn't a lot of core books released in a year. Frankly there is now free software that is up to date that is just a character builder (which is what most of us want) ran by what seems one person. (To be fair it could be more but no where near the staffing of HLO).

Put all the together and it seems HLO has just abandoned the SF AP line and it is really hard to think it's any other way given the communication from LoneWolf.
