In search of perfection

Postby CIRO » 07 April 2017, 16:07

1. Fix the DLC being connection only, as the Space marine ships appeared in my solo play as an enemy, and I haven't yet purchased them, I'm guessing that they're in the main files, i.e. the patches, which is smart, we get to see how cool they are before buying, but needing an online connection is silly, short sighted, and mean when steam goes down forever in 10 or 100 years, two huge chuncks of your excellent work will be gone from the world, forever. Other bugs I have noted elsewhere.

2. Triple the number of ship slots, and 10x the points for solo skirmish play, I can't plug the gap of the eye of terror with just 8-10 ships. ;P (It is understandable that in the campaign this would be impossible for balance reasons.

3. Hardcore Mode: Custom/Skirmish would benefit massively from and optional level of damage, with fire at 50% damage, and wreaked at 25%, at 0% the ship would be gone, forever, this is less a case of dark souls, and more of an FTL thing.

4. Custom Games basically need to give you access to any ship, any time, with any upgrades, and any name or skills, in any fleet, with on either side, ATM TBH, it's a let down, see also point 2.

5. Let us choose the individual colours of parts of our ships please!

6. Some planets can't be attack in the campaign due to the sector buttons covering the planets. We need to be able to zoom out more in both battle and map.

7. Groups, please let us group ships in our Navy into smaller fleets. this helps massively in escort missions, and an option for battles not to end after we've one but once all ships are dead, or warped out.

8. A tick-tac-toe style multiplayer campaign would be cool.

9. Having the space marines as a new game plus campaign option would be cool AF. w Icon, different ships, voice filter, boom, go.

10. The guns on the wings of imperial ships do nothing, please fix this so they fire, if only visually, they seem to be super-multi-lasers, so not all that potent, but it's weird they're just sitting there, like soo much extra weight.

11. The enemy seem to never-ever use alternate colours, it gets pretty samey with the same chaos red ships all the time.

12. t would also be cool to fight our own admirals and ships in solo skirmish.

13. Finally a save replay, and hudless playback would be a welcome bonus feature!

Thank you for making an awesome game, but it could be Epic with the above.

Greetings CIRO,

Let's answer those points as thoroughly as possible:

1. Already answered here: viewtopic.php?f=32&t=24467

2. This is one of the most frequent request we receive and it was duelly submitted. On a sidenote, Imperator5, PistonMiner and their team have made a mod that allows you to increase the number of ships.

3. It could be interesting to know what the community thinks about this idea.

4. Custom Games and Skirmish mode could use a little revamp. Escalated to Game Designers. :)

5. This suggestion was made several times but we felt it would be more in line with the Lore to give you color presets.
As a result, when you are customizing your fleet, you can also choose a battlegroup / warband (depends of the faction you choose) that'll give access to specific colors. If your ship has a favor, you'll need to hide it to display the battlegroup color.
I understand we are still far from some other Games Workshop licensed games but we thought it would be better this way.

6. Already answered here: viewtopic.php?f=32&t=24467

7. It was submitted to Game Designers.

8. Also submitted. ;)

9. I see Chaos worshipers and Xeno-abominations coming from afar. :o

10. This is an interesting question. We asked the same thing to Games Workshop when we were designing the game and it appears those wings are not weapons, even less super-multi-lasers: they are just cosmetics. :)

11. You're right and it would be nice to change that. Escalated.

12. Don't you think there're enough enemies in the Gothic Sector to avoid fighting your evil twin? :p

13. The replay feature is one of the most common suggestion we receive. I already spoke to the staff about it and technically this is a bit of a challenge because we didn't build the game in this direction. We will do our best to find a solution tho.

Thank you very much for your feedback! It helps a lot to know what we can improve in the future. :)
