Thanks a lot for the kind words guys!
This helps a lot and yes i agree.

The main reason why i am creating this game is actually (besides that i realy like the game idea and the very positive feedback from play testers) that i dont have to rely on it financially. This gives me the opportunity to create it the way i envisioned and also react on your feedback.

It is very nice to read thoughts that confirm mine.
Thanks for sharing.

One thing to keep in mind though (or at least for me). Reality check is always important. Don’t work on something that goes into the wrong direction. But this can be checked with forums like this, tigsource or play testers.
And as i said. i am back on track. I will finish the features i am working on, will add content and it will be awesome ;)

I will definitely hire an artist at the end to add some nice images for mission goals and com screen.
Stay tuned!

I am currently testing the new starmap system.
Its fun and working already quite well.

    The green dots:
    • The green dots are ships which follow several trade routes can which be raided.
    • They and disappear after being raided and spawn again after a while
    • Raiding brings credits for upgrades or better gear

    The red exclamation mark dots:
    • They stand for story/progression missions
    • They are thougher, not moving and have a communication sequence before entering the level
    • They disappear if you found the required item in that level and unlock linear

    Planets:
    • Planets are kind of home worlds of the races
    • They can be raided, change abit depending on mood and send attack drones if mood is low

    I am polishing the trade routes anbd spawning system right now. I also want to add "emergency encounters" which dont move and lower or raise moods of races depending on your action.

    One issue i have: I have no clue how to create a logic to spawn the green fog random but in shape everytime i create a new map.

    hi guys,

    a quick question regarding the style of the protagonists.
    I made a quick experiment:



    Do you prefer the slicker style (blue) or the existing one with the bandana?
    I am not talking about the character but the style of it.
    Any thoughts on the drop shadows on the left?

    Cheers!

    I worked a bit more on the characters and have a favorite so far.
    A slimmer version with a drop shadow.
    It doenst look so bulky as the versions i used so far.



    Happy :)

    If I'm being a bit picky, the turquoise flooring look bad to me. Its too overpowering.
    A lot of the characters are lost. The overall color blended way too much together. No focal point.
    You might want to darken the flooring a bit. Should let the character/npcs/enemies pop out, others are just secondary.

    Anyway, all the characters style looks good to me. The drop shadow makes it much better too.

      Unfortunately i lost a week due to bugs in the latest build.
      I thought my behaviours were broken after some changes but it was realted to a bug in attributes.
      I still have some hick ups i have to investigate but looks like  the game is running again.

      ...by the way...say "Hi" to Captain Jack ;)

      I'm watching your progress and realize that you are making a game that I always dreamed to do, from childhood.

      Keep it up, it can be really very interesting project. you just need to little polishing it. Sometimes I do not know what to next, or just stuck in some room.

      I will add more comments when will play in the last version. But overall the game has a very giant potential.
