With the new update you made the game easy, now when I am boarded and I destroy the enemy ship, the game says I won, but the enemy disappears from my ship now... this wasn't a big deal before since I had to finish them off but it actually made the game easy especially on black hole.

Please add more enemies like the Aviary kind, the way they multi-target other parts of the ship rather than the usually one spot or multiple areas, this actually made me panic and had to move some crews around before the bombs hit... hehehe Plus what are you planning for the contraband?

Regarding the PAUSE button:

You mentioned in your recent Kickstarter post, that you don't want to include it into the game, since the point is really to rule the chaos and mayhem brought upon your crew.

I think, what most players want is a PAUSE button, that stops a game, and they can do something else for a while. (My wife is talking to me and I need to stop the game for a moment kind of thing.)

It could be a PAUSE button, that brings you to a another PAUSE screen and you can't do anything else. This function is reachable by going in to load/settings menu, but its 2 clicks instead of just one.

If you just hit the button to take you to the main menu, it pauses the game. So the feature you want is already in the game, and only takes one click.

You have a hardware pause button built into your iPad... Hit the 'home' button and SC will pause in the background.

^This.

And on another note, you can also move around your ship, zoom in and zoom out when the game is paused like this.

Its actually 2 clicks, but home button is also a solution. I don't like to do it, since my SC is sometimes unstable after coming back from the background.

Anyway problem solved ;)

Three clicks for main menu (HUD Menu button -> Settings button -> Exit Game)

One click to pause game (HUD Menu button) :lol:

1.Multiplayer-you can read details on my topic for it on Suggestions page

2.More Weapons-I am seriously getting bored with only a laser cannon,plasma torpedo and machine gun I'd like some more

3.Voices- I would like the crew members to say things during battle or other orders, also aliens speaking in strange different languages

4.I will send you another group of new improvements I would like
Thanks! :)

I have a very small issue, but I just have to mention it.

In the game we are moving to a new galaxy during the game. However on the map it seems to be the same galaxy, just a different region in the galaxy, a different quadrant, different 'arm' of the Milky way.

I think it would be more logical to use the term 'quadrant' or 'region' instead of the word galaxy. New galaxy would be a brand new map, with other galaxy-drawing on it.
