return to ship option/ main menu

Post by indi » Fri Dec 19, 2014 5:12 pm

When playing and pressing esc the only option is to exit the game. (may be missing something)

It would be nice for an option back to the main menu
and back to ship if you still have crew on there.

I agree with you but at current the GUI menu has a fairly low priority. I know in later iterations they will add more functionality to the menu but at present it currently is not of high priority.

,But this functionality would aid in bug searching efforts allowing players to "restart" their game instead of exiting out of the program all together.

I understand your reasons but if you send only one crewmember to the surface and get killed there is no way to return to the ship and you must restart, giving no options to any task running on the ship with the rest of the crew. This can hurt the bug hunting process IMHO.

Good feedback guys - noted in our bugs.

The method of switching between your ship and the planet is still an argument we are having lol - it is tricky, but the current system is simply in place for functionality and is definitely broken. You will absolutely be able to return to your ship, even if your crew emmbers are all dead.

We will get a fix for this in as soon as saves are fixed - so maybe 2 weeks?
