now i know what was wrong, the slider for the reactor output goes from right to left instead of the normal (and used for example for the weapons) left to right, the tutorial does not mention it when you do it wrong, numbers (at least for me) are lowest left and highest right, another indicator, that right seems to be the highest setting.

but with the now right settings one is faster, is able to rotate better and the jumps big enough to not find the station again, but that doesn't mean much as it is hard enough from just a few kilometres away, perhaps a pulsating red or green light on top and bottom would help with the latter.

6 seconds are fine, but i don't seem to get that fast about half minute (at about 100fps) is as fast as it gets for me, for such a small ship, could even be faster, but we don't want players to throw up, aren't we?

then there's only the issue with momentum and perhaps putting some use to the things one can get: the pistol doesn't work, the parts just need room but aren't needed, there is nothing damaging anything for getting fixed with the tape and oxygen isn't needed either. and it needs collissions for the ship, as i got too comfortable just standing up from the chair to loot and then sitting down again to fly away.

until now i see much potential but much to do, too.

Well, thank you, but keep in mind that Adrorium is just a prototipe in pre-Alpha, I just started working on it several months ago so considering the complexity the game doesn't have very much to offer yet because i didn't have time to implement a lot of features but they will come, don't worry. Actually i have a To do list with 105 things that i have to implement and the list is only related to the few aspects i am working right now, otherwise i got thousands of ideas. So if you see a cheap jerry-rigged mechanism in the game it's not because i choose to make it look bad but bc it's a placeholder for a better system that i will be implementing in the future. Adrorium is a very complex game and i don't have time to work on every single aspect at the same time, i take it one step at a time.

The tutorial only allows you to progress to the next step when you changed the sliders to max output(and for the plasma-electricity ratio slider i didn't have time to make it a mission, i considered that ok not to be touched atm). Furthermore the actual plasma/ele. output values are displayed on the console  right to the buttons. Also  it says if you are outputting more plasma or electricity and on engines it's written connect to plasma grid so it should be logic that more plasma+lower electricity output would increase the plasma powered engines). Still i have big plans to redesign the whole tutorial and to implement some warnings when the engines aren't used at max potential but that will come a lot later in development because now i'm concentrating on the core game mechanics. Also the plasme-electricity ratio slider is not counter-intuitive because it's sliding direction doesn't represent how much plasma is produced but how much plasma is transformed into electricity.

P.S. a rudimentary targeting system (for locating  drones/planets/stations) is in that 105 to do's list. Right now i'm working on the multiplayer system.  If you have any sugestions or any problems you find with the game i have a discord server where we can talk. https://discord.gg/6MfbrcA
