My suggestions

Post by JackMiller341 » Wed Jun 12, 2013 6:59 pm

I just the campaign for the first time today! It was great! This is also my first post on the forum. This game has so much potential and I intend to stick around to see it's future.

But I do want to see some changes...
1. The whole game should not be battles. Sure battles are fun, but if you are trying to be similar to Star Trek, then there other things to do than battle. You could assist in an escort, help defend other planets, or save people in a rescue operation. The are so many options!

2. PLEASE get rid of the red flashing light at the beginning of battles. It kind of hurts my eyes and we don't want to have a 'pokemon' type incident! :D

3. After destroying an enemy ship, if I go to that planet again, I have to fight the bad guy again! First of all, aren't they already dead? At least give some kind of a surrender / retreat button.

4. Please redo your instructions. I had to figure out a lot of things over time and use other people's guides. I'm still not sure if I understand the game fully.

5. I'm sure you're already hard at work on this but we need integration between different devices. I got the game on my iPhone, so I had to play the whole game on it. I would like to be able to use both my iPhone and iPad to play.

Just some cool ideas:
- A second in charge (ex. Spock, Riker) who can take over if the captain dies.
- More customization of ships
- If your ship is heavily damaged, when you zoom out you could see smoke and or debris
- More space to hold tokens!
- Speaking of tokens, there should be a token generator!

This game is so much fun and I can't wait for the next update!

1) This has been brought up many times in reviews and on the forums. There's a lot of planned and suggested content.

2) I'm sure Zavier will send the devs a note/bug for this, no guarantees on it changing

3) By design - current replay behavior is revisiting fights

4) You didn't provide anything of note to help beyond saying "it didn't work for me". What don't you understand? What parts confused or were unclear?

5) Yup, also a well tread topic

Token generator comment doesn't make sense though, every room that requires a token generates that token - please explain. The remainder of that list has come up in other suggestion threads.

Thanks for responding :)

For number 3, it would be nice to have some kind of "Would you like to fight this person" prompt so that if you accidentally go to a planet you are not forced to fight.

I'm still a little confused about how traits work. Other than that there wasn't really one thing that stood out but I think that all the instructions could just be looked at again.

Now that I think about it a token generator is kinda dumb :oops:
