First some specs which might help.
I play on a MSI GL62 6QD-447NL Gaming Laptop.
i5 6300HQ Quadcore Processor with 2.3Ghz which will boost to 3.2Ghz.
24GB Memory. Geforce 950M Graphics Card with 2GB dedicated.
Windows 10 with latest updates ofcourse. :)
So i watched my favorite youtuber pick up this game and having a first look gameplay... and he did it again and made me buy a game again.
Yep this game. :) First a question, where do i send my crashreport as asked for in the popup?
So have been playing for a bit and here is what i came across so far.
First i like the idea and what it is so far.
Lag, lot's of it as soon as you expand a bit it starts and it gets worse the more you grow.
Played on a 100*100 map and had almost a quarter when it became almost unplayable.
This is also when my game suddenly crashed hence the question where to send the crash report.
Savegame option stoped to work all of a sudden (that's why the 6 hours straight.. wanted to test).
Actually i just noticed the games did get saved but the confirmation is not shown game was hanging in menu screen had to resume game to get out.
Ok... saved game day 26 will not load... (taskmanager game is at 0% activity), waited 3 minutes.
* Jobroles, i would like to be able to prioritize the jobs.
I have for instance a cook who also takes care of the garden, it is an ideal combination.
But sometimes she gets stuck in the one job and neglects the other job (waits for crops while she can go on cooking).
So if i can prioritize the cooking i hope that will help.
There are several jobs who could be combined if you could priortize the jobs.
Or.. for the hauling, let player prioritize what resources to haul first.
Realy frustrating to see worker haul everything but the copper you need badly.. :)
Pathfinding when mining seems to be off...
When i set up a long row to be minded which can be apoached from 2 sides the miner goes to one side mines 2 blocks.. walks all the way to the other side (which is a long way) mines 2 blocks and goes back... this repeats untill the job is done.
Improtant note this goes for long single row mining job.
If you let him mine 2 block wide there is no problem.
It could be me but personaly i don't get how that is supposed to work.
I have tons of resources ready to be hauled but the workers just stand there doing nothing.
Then when i mine something close by they run towards the goods to mine them.
So far.. to easy.
Took me about 2 hours 2 research and build everything there is so far and have decent production going.
Clone device... onces build the clones can be created way to fast.
Don't even care about finding lost capsules cause cloning is so easy.
About the cloning...
Make cloning harder (at least twice as long maybe even longer).
My population is all female.
But... i clone male workers, this could be intended but this also makes it so easy and make me not care about the capsules.
Maybe make it that you can only clone what you have in the "team".
I don't know how building is programmed but it seems to be done total random.
Sometimes the workers build in order that i put up the blueprint.
Sometimes the workers build what is closest to them.
They seem to have most fun building floors. (Ow i have plenty of resources).
There is a nice deconstruct option.
But this only works for objects not for the floors.
If you want to remove floors you have to leftclick and select deconstruct for every single tile. If possible get this under the demolish option aswell? please :)
When in building menu and hovering over a construction option (example bedroom floor) it shows the icon and amount of resources it takes to build it, but specially for new players the icons are a big unknown.
If possible add the resource text with it so it is a bit more easy to see what you need?
When i can send the crashreport i will add screenshots with some graphical glitches if the developper wants them.
I also noticed that workers can occupy the same space (diner table sit and stand at same spot which makes both of them no longer selectable.
Gonna start a new game, will continue feedback here.
Keep it up.
