Re: Dedicated topic for design discussions and/or feature suggestions?

There's no need (at this early stage, at least) for a one-size-fits-all approach. If you have a lot to say, post your own thread. If you have a small item or one related to an existing discussion, post it in an existing thread.

Re: My five cents for early impressions

1. UI transparency and visual clutter This is something that feels like it needs more work at the moment. Whenever you click on a star system, bring up planet management screen, ship management screen etc. - the star map remains completely visible (if only a bit dimmed) in the background. This make...

Re: Your Old Saves May Be Broken

My guess is that the tactical pass will start next week. There's a lot to do there.

Re: Map size and range.

Cool. The beta has no NDA? What are your thoughts about it Echo? That is actually a good question about the NDA. I know the devs would like us to refrain from sharing screenshots, videos, and so on, but they haven't mentioned anything about the testers just sharing their thoughts on the game on the...

Yes, even after a complete reboot, on both Chrome and IE11.

Re: First Impressions

Also, does selecting where we fire on enemy ships play any role in determining which enemy systems are damaged? No. Rotating is very finicky to me. I think I’m supposed to use the right mouse button to click on the ship once I’ve got its silhouette facing in the direction I want it to rotate, but m...

Re: Your Old Saves May Be Broken

I'm on Pacific Time, and Sven is on Eastern Time.

Which control scheme are you referring to?

Re: Map size and range.

Range is based on your current hyperdrive technology; you can travel X distance from any of your colonies or outposts. There is also an optional ship component (currently called "Warp Lane Amplifier") that extends the range of the individual ship at the cost of a System slot. The current b...

It's storing my correct IP address now, and it appears to work if I go the Stars in Shadow forum url: [removed] but if I go back to starsinshadow.com/forum/ it logs me out.

Re: Some Forum Strangeness

I don't know whether it's relevant, but I notice that in the 'Manage “Remember Me” login keys' section in the Profile tab of the User Control Panel, it shows the IP of all my login attempts as being localhost (127.0.0.1).

Arioch's Bug Reports

I figure I might as well post bugs here as well, so that everyone else can potentially benefit from them if they see something similar. Running SIS in windowed mode, I noticed some graphical artifacts in the starfield on the main menu and faction selection screen. They appear to be the outlines of t...

Re: Some Early Feedback

Also, the event icons are a bit obscure and would benefit from some small text beside them, I.e. "Pirates Encountered" beside that icon or "Scouts Arrived" beside that icon. The notification icon display is in the midst of being revamped; the icons for it are already done. I fee...

Re: Feb 01 - Initial testing / installation

Thanks for the detailed reports. It's great that you were able to find so many issues on such a wide variety of systems. Tactical combat is badly unbalanced, as I'm sure you've noticed. We didn't get a chance to make a much-needed pass at it before the beta deadline. For information on how to invade...

Re: First Impressions

Thanks for the feedback! - No zooming with mouse wheel or otherwise that I can find. Not the biggest deal with the current size of the galaxy, but if there are intentions to offer bigger galaxies a zoom feature would be nice. I don’t need to be able to zoom in to a system view or anything, I just li...
