Imagine your scientists trying to explain to the general population that they can't see any stars, because they haven't been discovered yet.

Citizen: "I don't remember seeing that star before."
Scientist: "We just discovered it yesterday."


Two words: Zone of Avoidance.

You might find this thread interesting:

We speculated about changes to the exploration mechanic then, too.

I'm impressed with the patience on this forum. On the Paradox forums it would have been a riot already over the lack of news!

Jedis to patience are used, we are. From playing 4X space operas it comes.

The 4X equivalent of holding your breath until you get what you want? i.e. it actually does more harm to you than to anyone else!

Das24680's new Distant Worlds LP- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0RjoEX2thM

Hopefully this will cool the nerves while we wait...

I wonder if Shadows will be late 1st quarter or early 2nd quarter...

Not a bad thing ie more polish time.

If push comes to shove, I'm buying unpatched Sword of the Stars 2 as well.

I hope they will also incorporate economy tweaks so its less hard to make insane amounts of money.


Yes, that's part of the balance we've been working on as well. Lots of economic and resource balancing so far during Shadows development.

Regards,

- Erik


Love all of the new additions but this has to be my favorite! No more insane piles of money! Money will have meaning! Economy slider please!!!

Oh and on the map settings please change it to distance from each other and not distance from you!

And as far as preventing bottleneck frustrations would not the best idea be to not allow us to build ships UNLESS we HAVE the resources to do so?

Diplomacy really needs some work as well AI's still repeat cancel repeat cancel repeat actions over and over.

Also is it possible when updating the game with patches to not have all your game settings and mods reset every time?

I have no sympathy for businesses who ignore their customers..Erik or whoever could toss us an update with a smartphone while eating lunch. The choice to leave us in the dark is deliberate.

I'm paying attention to Stardrive..which is going open beta any day now. DW with modern graphics and less micro. Hopeful it has an AI..I guess we'll see. Da123 has a new video series for DW up on youtube site. Shows off many of the community ui art mods.

Hey its ok, when they are ready we will get some juicy info.

MOO3's not that bad when it's all patched up (user patches).

The MOO3 Forums are how I found out about DW.

You call those screenshots? The first one is of the product case and the second one we can do ourselves with any number of ship sets ...

IIRC, it was said that the game will be released at beginning of 2013.
Of course, there's lots of work on the game, and we all should wish good luck, but...
It's about time for screenshots, indeed.

I'm watching Das' stuff. Thanks for the tip on Larry Monte. Didn't know about that one. Instant sub.

... the press release.

You realize I am talking about Pandora: First Contact, right?

Alpha Centauri with new graphics? Sign me up. I just wish they'd gone with a hexagonal grid instead of an orthagonal one.

Yes, I know what you're referring to.

It's just that there's no real information about it yet.
