Ideas and suggestions / Re: System map and Minimap + radar
« on: April 18, 2015, 06:16:59 am »
I completely agree. One of the biggest criticisms of the game is lack of content. After a short time, you do the same things over and over again. Not being able to see enemy movements would add a lot of surprise and difficulty. Making the management of radar and sensors more important adds depths to the game. It also conceas possible lack of content. :)

I'll just hop on that thread and ask a slightly related question: Are you planning to expand/change the main quests any time soon?

I thought about making a chapter in between being recruited and fighting the aliens, mostly about pirates and ressources. But that would only make sense if nothing too fundamental is going to change.

Have you tried destroying the ship?

I have some issues with the new patch (1.2.5): My save-games got corrupted and the game fails to create new galaxies. While creating the system objects, it just goes on forever.

The log spits out this message:

Bug reports / [1.2.1] Strange interaction when switching factions.

I accidentally found an exploit today  ;D Given that it is technically not a bug, I will not follow the guideline :P

[Story-Spoilers!] I played the Order main quest until tasked with conquering an alien system adjacent to their capital. Realizing that I would need a few more levels and bucks, I went to freedom territory and finished a few old quests. I still had the quest to join freedom (Got that one after joining Order), so I went to their capital and talked to the recruiter, not being sure if I could maybe doubledip on factions. I changed factions, but can still buy mercs from the chief of Order and get money from every Hive destroyed. I also got twice the quest reward for getting the device that enables travel to the aliens territory.

I think removing the ability to see ships on your system-map would add a lot of tension and surprise to the game. You could also expand on this by adding asteroid maps to the store, and maybe long range sensore-items that give you the ability to see ships up to a certain level. Quests would come with coordinates, stationary objects would remain visible.

The second big thing I would like to see would be the calling in of allies in fights. Mainly that pirates sometimes call in their friends. This would make encounters less predictable and more fun. Risk is always good. Attacks on pirate bases would be a nice late-game addition to the quests.

Patrols by the factions would be nice to see, too, but are less of a priority to myself.

All of this would make the game more difficult, so it probably shouldn't be added to the easiest difficulty. I'm nitpicking now, but having three difficulties with the easiest one being "normal" is a bit irritating.

 @Lurler: Ah, well that makes a lot of sense. Then I will probably be able to get this done in some unprotected wifi tomorrow, thanks for the response!

@ai_enabled: Just double checked, I correctly enabled the ports in my local firewall. (As long as it is UDP only). The firewall of my landlord's router is probably the problem. On the off-chance that there may be another problem these are my personal information:

location: Germany
game version: v.1.18
system: Windows 8

I will check in later again, after I made it to another internet access.

E: Allright, it really seemed to be nothing but the rooter's firewall. Thanks for the quick response, and cheers for the release ;D

This hit me really hard today, as I was hyped for the game, but now won't be able to play it for another week, since only my landlord can unlock new ports and he is on vacation.
