Igard -> RE: POLL - What 8 things would you like to see next in Distant Worlds? (3/31/2011 9:36:19 PM)

Thanks everybody for voting so far.

Interesting to see tech/components slipping down to 5th place. It finished 2nd in the first poll. This could be down to new options taking precedence.

Borders are more popular than expected, but of course, we only want this if the system works well and improves the game.

3 votes for the Kaltor farms!!! Proof enough that it should be added to the game ASAP! [:D]

Nice to see diplomacy, trade, and galaxy news getting some love. But bigger map sizes already has 24 votes? Man, you guys have too much time to play DW [8D]




Bingeling -> RE: POLL - What 8 things would you like to see next in Distant Worlds? (4/1/2011 7:17:16 AM)

Bigger map sizes are not about the number of stars, but the distances between them. Bigger board, the same number of pieces...




Data -> RE: POLL - What 8 things would you like to see next in Distant Worlds? (4/1/2011 8:52:42 AM)

Yes, MartialDoctor, that's why we want bigger map sizes....fuel more sparce and even more time for DW [:)]




Igard -> RE: POLL - What 8 things would you like to see next in Distant Worlds? (4/1/2011 9:43:52 PM)

Empire borders has shot up to 2nd place! Looks like the popularity for Personell/Characters has abated.

Notice theres not a great deal between some of the mid table answers, so there could be alot of changes there.

Hey, who's that .375 voter? [:D]
I want the votes he didn't use so that I can push galactic news to the top[8D]

Someone who can't count to 8![:D]

But that's not hard, it comes right after 9 [&:]




Igard -> RE: POLL - What 8 things would you like to see next in Distant Worlds? (4/2/2011 7:30:50 PM)

Half the time I've counted the voters, I've found there to be a decimal. I don't know if it lets you vote 5 times, submit, then return later and make another 3 votes?

If you clear your cookies or use another browser on the same computer, you can easily get back your lost votes, and I hope that's what we're seeing people doing.

I'm a bit concerned about folks abusing this and voting more times than they should. It's a pretty lousy thing to do, but I know there are some people out there that might believe their opinion counts more than others.

It's my hope that Distant Worlders are a more honest bunch, but you never can be certain.




Data -> RE: POLL - What 8 things would you like to see next in Distant Worlds? (4/2/2011 7:38:44 PM)

That's why most of us also post our choices here, much more transparent this way. It's not much but it should help confirm the results - kinda like a statistical sample.
Maybe Matrix can pick up your idea and create a poll in a more controled environment (registered users only and such). It is really good and the gain far exceeds the effort.




Igard -> RE: POLL - What 8 things would you like to see next in Distant Worlds? (4/2/2011 9:11:54 PM)

I don't know if the forums support polls, but the ASPPlayground site has version 3.9 available, whereas this site says 2.4.5 at the bottom of the screen.

It would be cool, but I don't think Erik would reveal any possible new features by means of a poll until they're absolutely certain such new features can be implemented. By which time, there's really no point in polling for it.

Anyway, thankyou everyone for voting so far. I think the poll is starting to take an interesting shape, still lots of competition in the middle of the table.

Good point. Maybe they should not expose new features, maybe we can propose them and poll on them. That way Elliot is free to do what he thinks is best and possible. We only provide an indicator on what we'd like to see....this is by no means mandatory from my point of view, passions aside. [:)]

Don't you laugh at my .375 vote!!!

LOL! Nice Data....it's my understanding though that with Androids, Romulan Ale
ingestion creates a constant state of drowsiness and beard growth! [:-]

Don't give Igard any ideas or I might end up one day with an avatar covered entirely with hair [:)]

I'd bet then that the Star Wars fans in this forum would mistake you for Chewbacca! [:D]






Then what? Would you raid the Emperor's 'Imperial Ale' stashes as well? [:-]

Data the Wookie?




Data -> RE: POLL - What 8 things would you like to see next in Distant Worlds? (4/4/2011 10:09:57 AM)

Why would I? Hair has already grown everywhere...I'm the manliest man ever [:D]
btw, Data the Wookie nicely reconciles ST and SW....we should have a mod for it [:)]




EaglePryde -> RE: POLL - What 8 things would you like to see next in Distant Worlds? (4/4/2011 11:22:23 AM)

I'd go with Multiplayer as my first decision and picked some nice other things as 2-7. It feels lonley without buddys

It never ceases to amaze me...the one thing I have no interest in what so ever is winning by a large margin. So...all I ask is that Elliot make it an optional thing, so those of me that don't want to deal with it won't have to. [;)]

Now what I'd most like to see falls under the modding section...the ability to build my own storyline and scenarios. [8D]




Bingeling -> RE: POLL - What 8 things would you like to see next in Distant Worlds? (4/4/2011 7:49:38 PM)

I think I just reached the end of yet another game.

The end is when opposition seems low, and the games feels like a grind. Kill space ports, invade planets, squash rebellions, repeat. The game settings are obviously not working. It was for quite a while, though.

And yet again no storyline progress beyond the info buildup. I found the cache with some tech (not as over the top as in the original game, luckily). Last session was war with Ikurro, and the bastards instant rebelled on conquest, including taking control of my invasion forces [&:].

If continuing I guess I should stop with silly invasions and just bomb everything.




cookie monster -> RE: POLL - What 8 things would you like to see next in Distant Worlds? (4/4/2011 8:06:43 PM)

Subjugate the whole lot of them




Bingeling -> RE: POLL - What 8 things would you like to see next in Distant Worlds? (4/4/2011 8:13:14 PM)

That would not stop them :)

I could of course trade away every contested base, but what should I do then?




Igard -> RE: POLL - What 8 things would you like to see next in Distant Worlds? (4/6/2011 12:32:46 AM)

Empire borders has really gained alot of votes last couple of days. Giving Personell/characters a run for its money.

Keep the votes coming in and feel free to comment and tell us what you voted for.

Maybe we should also have a closing date for the poll; or have like a master poll where the results for all the polls we're doing can be aggregated.




cookie monster -> RE: POLL - What 8 things would you like to see next in Distant Worlds? (4/6/2011 6:18:20 AM)

All good ideas Data. Perhaps these polls are very farsighted and are really providing feedback for DW Series expansion ideas.

What do you think of a poll for next patch request?

Something as near sighted as current target arrow for ship in transit, game option for paused/unpaused opening of windows, correct initial start designs as in the elimination of underpowered designs holding back hyperspeeds, AI empires keeping similiar military strength as neighbours...etc...etc

Perhaps even a standard difficulty slider.

I'm after improvements now!!! Not ideas so large that the amount of programming would justify being an expansion only item.

Kudos for the polls though, it's a great feedback tool.




Igard -> RE: POLL - What 8 things would you like to see next in Distant Worlds? (4/6/2011 7:55:13 AM)

Good points, you know there's nothing stopping you guys from making some polls too if you like.[8|]

There won't be a closing date for this poll as it's fairer for all the community (some of them only check the forums every couple of weeks) to leave it open for as long as possible (until one of the features gets implemented).





EaglePryde -> RE: POLL - What 8 things would you like to see next in Distant Worlds? (4/6/2011 8:23:08 AM)

although not the strongest, MP has a very viable stand in there what makes me happy.

What fascinates me is the Nr. 1. This is typical civilization/RPG stuff unless i'm geting it wrong. How this could be Nr. 1 prior to the more important 4x core mechanics like ship travel destination markers/lines and eta. But a vote is a vote.




Igard -> RE: POLL - What 8 things would you like to see next in Distant Worlds? (4/6/2011 5:30:34 PM)

I think personell/crew/captains characters option is a tad ambiguous. It could be as simple as crew experience, so your crew will gain power the more involved they are. GalCiv did this, but I always felt it was overpowered.

It also includes characters like Captains, Admirals, Generals very similar to spies, only you would assign them to a ship or a fleet or send them on special missions. This sort of system was acheived in Star Wars : Rebellion/Supremacy brilliantly, so it's a good 4x mechanic that adds lots of depth and some good role play elements also.
