Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

[...] I think a UI more like Freelancer's ship outfit screen (where selecting a slot to fill on the left-list automatically populates the right list with all possible options) is probably a cleaner way of handling things. I just wanted to suggest exactly this feature. It would make designing ships ...

Re: Planet display glitch (plus some more)

I think I know what happened to Gryfalcon here. When you have a pirate encounter 2 events happen: - you get a diplomacy window - you get an unresolved encounter Both events must be resolved and they must be resolved in this order. If you close or dismiss the diplomacy window and then click "Att...

Re: Planet display glitch (plus some more)

I think these rules are sensible, but I can see that the way the UI presents them may be unclear and confusing, and this is something that we need to work on. I agree that the rules are sensible and I think I know where I took that "wrong turn" in my mind. When I got the "diplomacy w...

Re: Planet display glitch (plus some more)

Alright! Our first NVIDIA-based shader glitch. Sadly, I don't have a 650 GTX to test on, and, there's a chance that this may be related to Windows 8 in some way as well.... But -- I can think of a few simple changes that might reasonably fix this. So, I've posted them to 'dev'. Would you let me kno...

Re: Planet display glitch (plus some more)

Attacks are optional; if you choose not to attack, the battle won't happen. Defending is not optional; if you don't resolve it, the battle will be auto-resolved. That is what I thought how it should be. But what happened was: - my fleet /ship) arrives at a star, there is a pirate fleet present - I ...

Planet display glitch (plus some more)

http://stephan.gestalter.at/sis/sis_error01.png Planet display glitch I have had this bug since I started testing, but for some unknown reason thought that there was already a post about this. Couldn't find that post anymore, so I start a new one. Some planet types look like this (dark side transpa...

Re: Distrubuted Production?

About the fleet composition thing, maybe a "pull" mechanic would be easier to use. At the moment there are lots of planets individually ordered to build ships which are then individually "pushed" into a fleet. But a fleet could know what ships it needs and could be ordered to aut...

Missile swarms

I moved my feedback to a new thread as I do not want to invade Gryfalcon's thread any longer. I played some more up to the point where I cound have a word with those pesky pirates that dared to atomize my peaceful scout. I built a destroyer (or 5) and went there to show them who's best. First I want...

Re: First Impression

To select a tech to research, you have to left-click on a check-mark symbol, next to the tech's name. Thanks a lot for that info! I would have never tried that. A suggestion for the research screen: Maybe changing the check-mark symbol to an arrow (left arrow to be precise) would help intuitiveness...

Re: First Impression

Hello! I am Dinkelsen, I was allowed into the Beta yesterday and I had a very similar experience like Gryfalcon at my first hours with the game, so I figured, I'd put my feedback here. Please forgive me if my assumption is wrong. The installer worked fine and the game launched without any problems. ...

Re: Font

I would also say that the font fits well with the graphics style of the entire game, not only the UI. I would also agree that there is a slight collision in stayle when comparing the headlines font to the main text font. It is only slight, but noticable. Maybe changing the main text font to somethig...

Re: Introduce yourself :)

Hello! I'm Dinkelsen, as so many amogst you I have been playing games for a very long time, since 1981 to be precise. Good old time of ASCII art space invaders. I even did some game-programming back then but I would not call them games really, maybe gamelets. They were sort of "Fly-through-an-a...
