  1. This does seem to be a "Lots of lookers, but few replies" Forum. I think The Net is a good idea if they re-implement the storms at some future point.

    A little fun(?) in the center of the planet

    Sorry, my bad! Totally missed the date on that one. Oh well. Don't worry about me being out of sorts I usually catch up with things ...eventually. Hahahaha
  3. In EA I used to find hydrazine canisters blown along by the storms and also lying randomly about on the planet's surface. Don't know where they came from, but I was always happy to find them. I don't recall finding other items or resources in that manner, but those could also be added into the mix of stuff that your net could capture.

    Extra Large Storage is... Useless.

    I have plenty of items that I have researched and have never even built 1 of, and I really don't think I'm missing out on anything by it. Some of the items are very useful, while others are much less so. It would be nice if all of them had some purpose, but at this point, that doesn't appear to be the case. Maybe it was the developer's way to keep people running their research chambers so they could get enough bytes to research all of the items.

    I like your video, but where is your Gateway Engine? If you're at the core, shouldn't it be there? Also, what are those "Free floating" tethers attached to? I don't recall any tether that activated in mid air, well, not any other than those pesky ones on the planet's surface that place and activate on you and then appear to be floating a foot or two above the surface after you walk away.

    Didn't stop me!

    I feel your pain. MK. I had a bug issue that wasn't letting me play a saved game for more than 2 or 3 minutes before it booted me out to the desktop. Luckily SES patched that issue so I didn't have to abandon a game with hundreds of hours of time on it. I hope they can fix your issue so you can soldier on. BTW, what was the last achievement you needed to do before the 100%. Mine was activating all the gateways. I had a few on Atrox that were absolute bears to get to, but I got those done a while ago and also have 100% completion on the achievements.

    Nice work, but getting all of the achievements doesn't mean you've completed the game, it just means you've completed the achievements. There is so much game play in this type of game that you could play for tons of hours and not see every situation that is in there. So, again, good work, but there is lots more stuff to do in the game.

    Triptych Technology

    Interesting concept. It also appears that you have put quite a bit of thought into this possibility. Great job, and I hope SES takes note.

    Game Suggestion

    OK, I remember the resource plinth on the "Test Planet" that was part of EA for a while. I spent some time poking around on that planet, but found that the nearly vertical slopes surrounding my base area and the thick trees covering the areas at the tops of the slopes made it a very difficult place to navigate without doing lots of tunneling. I have not done much with the color aspect of the game. Have they worked the bugs out of the attachment that you use to "paint" terrain yet?
  10. I agree with you about having tether color options available. Even when they implemented the "Christmas lights" theme the thread between the tethers was still the same light blue color, and only the lights on top of the tethers changed. Being able to change the light color and the thread color "on the fly" like you can with the suit colors would be very helpful. I find that it is almost impossible to see the tether lines on Glacio under certain lighting conditions and have nearly, and actually, died several times as a result. I think your light mode/dark mode idea is a good alternative to having lots of color options too.

    I freeze when I go into space

    Well, wear some long underwear then. Hahahahahaha Sorry couldn't resist that one, but I feel for your situation.
  12. I like this idea, Marley. Were you around for the "holiday tethers" that were implemented for a few days around Christmas time? The tether pole lights were lit up in the colors normally associated with holiday lights. It was really cool, but didn't stick around very long. I'd like to see dark colored tether lines available for the icy/snow covered planets.

    Just curious, what do you suppose "creative mode" would entail?

    Clock! Big. Friggin. Clock!

    OK, so noted. I am still, however, of the opinion that an in-game real time clock is unnecessary. Your opinion may vary.

    So now my question is whether your initial post was a joke.
