Thanks Leafstalker for these Great comments and for this First Post !
Please feel free to invite your friends here, you can talk about anything you like.
It's normal for a forum to be deserted in its first days, but we are trying to get more people in to post the first few subjects like you did, and then this forum will start living
On our part we are working very hard Full-time on the development of the game itself hence not much time to create many posts ourselves, we've just took two days to put this forum online including the new website and some publicity etc.
We will start posting some news about upcoming features very soon though.
For now I agree that the game looks more like a sim, we've only posted videos about the graphics and the possibilities of the vastness of space and the seamless transitions.
But we're working on adding a gameplay right now and will be posting new vids soon
As for the aliens, we're not there yet but we're planing to do something more realistic, for instance instead of grey aliens with laser guns like in most games/movies, it would be more like very amazing and completely different creatures, different sizes, some passive, others very aggressive..
For the crafting system, we're currently in the stage of proof of concept for network performance and possibilities, and it's looking good so far
By the way the multiplayer and networking part of the game is already done and 100% working and we're building on top of it.
So you can gladly expect the first Alpha release to be 100% multiplayer capable
You will also be able to play Solo of course !
On these nice words I should go back to work on the game (or maybe go to sleep.. something I don't do very often these days
Again thank you very much for your first post, stay put for updates !
