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...

Re: Some Forum Strangeness

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...

Re: Some Early Feedback

The end turn button took me five minutes to find. I'm sure you have a big button on the way, but figured I'd mention it. This is one of the UI changes that's still in the hopper. Here's my mockup that includes the proposed End Turn button: http://well-of-souls.com/temp/svenfleet/UI_Mockups7_notific...

Re: Race Selection Screen Bug?

All feedback is welcome. Don't hesitate to report anything that you think seems out of place. Just try not to be put off when most of the time our response will be "yeah, we know." :D

Re: Race Selection Screen Bug?

Not a bug, just items missing in the current beta build. Most of the race-specific items are not fully implemented in this build.

Those slots are for displaying race-specific units, technologies, or abilities.
