Necessary sugestions for "VoidExpanse"
« on: June 08, 2017, 12:48:06 am »
Dear VoidExpanseTeam,
first of all my gratulations for VoidExpanse. I bought it becasue of the interesting expression and because it was near to my character. It surely is for tactical gaming really great. But here´s my suggestions for you:
First of all if you want to sell on the German market you have to translate it, especially there´s a lot of writing. Just smaller games are able to be sold without translation, but for VoidExpanse this will be necessary absolutely. Otherwise it won´t get too much attention.
The tactics is really interesting, that´s the reason I bought it, but controling isn´t easy, so give some advice how to manage it in the best way, and of course controling should be optimal otherwise you can´t succeed.
The beginning is really hard, because of the reasons before and because of the total understanding of the game. For Russians it seems not to be the critical points, but for me it was too difficult to get to the point of pleasure. So please give some more advices or make it easier for beginners.
VoidExpanse is server based, so you will be able to play a whole life with it because of it´s greatness. And so also is the beginning. But after its life time it just will be cut. Of course it will run several years, but nobody will think about what is after this. To point out to also give after life time the server software to the customers to make it playable for their own also could be a point to make it more attractive for the fans. Perhaps think about it.
Have a real nice day and all the best for you.

Greetings MrRight and thank you for a wonderful comment!

Now, you've raised a number of questions which I'd like to address.

Firstly, you've mentioned the language barrier - and we do understand that this might be a problem with some cases. But as an indie studio we couldn't always afford translating the game into all languages our players want. However, we are always and always working with our community and provide it with an extended support in its initiatives, like, for example - fan translation. Here's a wonderful result of such cooperation: German Translation/Deutsche Übersetzung (mit oder ohne DLC!), consider using this mod should you need your game to be in German ;)

Secondly, let's talk about controls - those are really easy to get used to, and even if initially it might be difficult for some players, after half an hour - hour of gameplay pretty much everyone gets used to it.

Thirdly, If you're in the beginning of your journey - don't rush it, either follow the quests or store up some money to buy a better ship, this will give you an upper hand against most of the pirates you'll encounter. And if you need some more info don't hesitate to visit our wiki or take a look at the videos we've recorded for our newer players.

Lastly, most of the VoidExanse multiplayer servers are run by our community, so... we've pretty much done what you're suggesting already. =)
Hopefully, this helps, thank you once again, and have a great game!

Dear AtomicTorch Studio,
many thanks for your reply.
Yes, I see. Surely today translation is a question of costs, too, but this I would see as the most important point, especially for the German market.
The last point I don´t understand exactly, because the server software doesn´t run on every costumer PC with purchasing. So giving away for everyone could be interesting to think about but just in the future.
I will give Void Expanse another try, it really makes an interesting impression. I always purchase all DLC´s too, so I surely will do for Void Expanse, too.
Have a real great time and all the best for you.

The German Translation Mod is really great! Makes a lot and gives everything a new stand.
Many thanks for it.

I need to clarify. The server software is included into the game. You can find it in the game installation folder. So practically everyone can host a server. There is a wiki page describing how to setup it.

Oh, that´s great! So it will be a game with no end for personal use and it makes sense to buy for the network more than one version.
Perhaps it will be possible to optimize this in any way.
Many thanks for the hint.
