UPDATE: Ship designer preview stream delayed until further notice.
Today's topic: the best-laid plans of mice and men!
We had some last-minute complications with our build, and unfortunately this means I have to cancel the stream. Please accept my apologies, everyone.
Unfortunately, this is the reality of game development. You can plan and plot and schedule out to your heart's content, and then sometimes the build blows up anyway.
The team is hard at work getting the ship designer ready for release to our founders ASAP -- trust me, we want nothing right now so much as to get it into your hands so you can help us make it the best it can be -- but it's just not quite there, and there are some things that are preventing even a Paul-driven demo on the stream this afternoon.
Again, I'm very sorry. I still fully intend on doing a preview of the ship designer via stream as soon as I possibly can, and I'll let you know as soon as I do.
I hate posting things like this, and all of Stardock hates disappointing our fans and supporters. This is why you see studios stick to the "when it's done" line so much!
But hey, happy Friday, amirite? If only mine hadn't already gang agley.

UPDATE: Plans, as they often do, changed a bit on us.
The ship designer preview will be on Friday, May 2, at 3pm Eastern (noon Pacific, 9pm CET).
See you there!

ORIGINAL POST: We're taking a week off from the GC3 dev stream (check the replay of our Legendary Heroes stream showing off the new Leader Pack DLC if you need your fix), but it's all in service to the greater good: Getting you a sneak peek of the ship designer live on broadcast next week.
We appreciate your patience, and hope you don't hate us too much for the delay.
As a peace offering, I present lead designer Paul Boyer's (mormegil on the boards) new Skype avatar, taken from the obvious high point of our GC3 streaming so far:
In the meantime, I invite you to come up with the best ship designer questions you can so that Paul can answer them on next week's stream (which will probably be on Wednesday at 3pm Eastern, but that's not set in stone yet).
See you next week, and don't forget to check out our previous streams on our Twitch.tv and YouTube channels.
