Thank you, so glad you like the game and thanks for the great feedback! =)
Awesome, glad you like the game =) To whomever wants to write stories we would love to read them as well. Feel free to write stories here in this subreddit as much as you please!
I really like the addition of these space hazards, they add an interesting dimension to decision making. Do I focus on turrets for anti-pirate work, or shields and scanners to better survive solar flares and meteorites? Do I risk going into a nebula and meteorite combo system to mine a critical resource? How long do I want to risk staying in a solar flare system to grab resources from a derelict?
My first exposure to a solar flare system was rough. I destroyed a pirate ship and stuck around to capture the crew and loot the ship. I was about half way through looting when the first flare hit. It wasn't too bad so I continued looting as there was some good stuff over there. Got hit a second time and this time was bad. Finally got the ship patched up enough to leave and a third flare hit even worse than the second. Had to vent most of the ship to stop the fires and smoke. The crew had to work overtime to get the minimum repairs done as quick as possible so we could escape. I w...Read more
Awesome, just the type of effect one would want to see from the new feature, affecting many areas of decision making and creating interesting choices regarding designing ships as well.
Great. Keep up good work.
Will do! =) Thank you.
Are the game saves compatible?
Should be, although there might be some small glitches. The assembler has changed in size to be a bit smaller and might cause a hull breach, but if you get it repaired it should be all good =)
You guys are doing a stellar job.
Many thanks! =)
Try rebooting the game and see if that fixes it!
Awesome, thanks for taking the time to write this! =)
This is why I'll keep reiterating that the hazards that cause fires will always be a bad idea. It may not have been meant as "punishment", but it sure feels like it.
In my humble point of view I see a problem to solve in a situation like this. Could someone die? Sure, they might, but by drafting and using only the most healthy and energy filled crew members could easily also lead to no deaths. Would someone dying be a big deal to me personally? Not necessarily, and perhaps that is also the part of where differences lie between players.
To me: I see a problem I can solve, using the tools in the game. The fire inside the console area can be put out by getting the crew members out of there immediately and closing all vents on the doors to the room, the fire can be contained, oxygen will run out and the fire will die on its own. The room is perfect for that =)
Will the room be filled with gas after this? Sure will. I would Put space suits on and crew members fixing/operating consoles and jump the hell out of there to lick my wounds in a more calm sector.
Shane, Ffion, Narci can be drafted and the storage fire put out. They a...Read more
So glad you like the game and many thanks for your encouraging words! =)
ehh my crew members dissapear when entering a shuttle? and i can also not draft or select the shuttle
Can you get this to reoccur? If you can please send in your save with F11 with clear steps to reproduce. Thanks! =)
So basically it would need to happen again when loading a save and then doing certain steps.
To bounce off of OPs bit about trading the ships back to the original faction and your point about actually claiming such ships being tricky due to springing players forward... you could actually have a little feature here that could really change the way the game plays (at least for the way I play).
Take OPs scenario where a military Alliance ship is killed by pirates and the ship is abandoned. Perhaps you could either choose to scrap it all as you would now - OR - give an option to offer it back to the original faction for a substantial (but more easily managed to avoid breaking gameplay) reward. With a catch.
You'd have to wait X number of days for that faction to send a crew to reclaim it, and each day provides X% chance of more pirates coming that you need to fend off. Jumping away would immediately abandon your offer/reward.
At the moment my gameplay largely consists of jump in - mine/scrap a derelict ship asap and then jump away again to keep hu...Read more
Thank you for the feedback and encouraging words. We will think about this =)
thanks for the reply!
Really glad to hear that the team is thinking about different weapon possibilities.
I do understand the tricky nature of fully working claimable ships being a big jump in power for the player. My idea kinda revolved around the whole Refugee system you guys are bringing in and I thought would it not be possible to have something like Refugee ships that you could trade back to the factions for some reputation or rewards or we could even build on the idea of the refugee system, say for example you respond to a distress beacon and take on board a refugee, you could repair up their ship for them and get it running again and return the refugee to their ship for some reputation gains. I think gaining reputation with the factions is currently quite limited unless you're willing to chuck a lot of resources at it and this would offer a fresh avenue to gain those reputations.
Thanks again for taking the time to reply.
These are interesting ideas, thanks! =)
