Hey Testers!

Use this thread to complain and rant about your Alpha test experience. We're looking for major bugs and to make sure the basic mechanics of the system are working. Have fun messing around with it!

Tried to change my name from Newb to Cyb0rg and it says "Character name is already used by another player"

By the way, I relocated my base when I saw somebody else had chosen water as their first product... relocation went fine without a hitch.

I also reset my research and it worked fine too.

I'm producing my first product to sell "Precious Minerals" however no matter how deep I dig into sub-menus on any of the tabs, I can't find what these sell for "value wise" unless I actually sell them first. Only the unhelpful demand % is shown. Have I not delved into the menus deep enough yet? Or is the value of items simply not shown?

Probably shouldn't be able to invite NPC players to guilds.

I'm realizing that this is hard to find because it doesn't show up as links nor does it make it obvious you can drill down. On the viewscreen tab go to "demand" and then click on "Raw materials" on the list of categories, Then "Minerals" then "Precious Minerals". You will see the demand for Precious Minerals. As you narrow down to Preciouos Minerals the grid shows you averages whatever category your looking at HOWEVER, you need to also zoom all the way down to the city you are interested in. If you are zoomed out looking at a planet, the demand (which is the sell price) will be an AVERAGE for the whole planet

That's first legitimate bug. Its accidentally looking for user (login) names not player names. That's whyit bounced when you put in your login.
UPDATE
I take that back, it's not a bug. It won't allow you to choose any other Player name OR login name in the system because anyone's login can potentially be their player name by default. You can't impersonate anyone.
If you want to use your login name, you can leave the player name blank and it should default to your login.

I found that page earlier, however I still don't see a clear value on that page. Here is what I see.



The "Demand" is just a colored bar. The only numbers of this page are under "%" and "AVG" So I'm taking a wild guess that the numbers under "AVG" are the price per unit. I'm not even sure about that, because all the numbers are the same, everywhere, and for every product, it's always 112. This is very very confusing to try and make sense of.

PS: I strongly recommend a mouse-over tool-tip system here explaining what each of these things means. I mean the Volume row is also unexplained, is that how much is bought at that location? How much is stored? How much is used?

So shouldn't I be able to change it to my rightful name then? Big Grin

The "%" is the actual price, 112 per unit. It should be changed to a "$" or "Value". You're not the first person to get thrown off by that. Back in the day the products had different base values (some were worth 100 each, some were worth 500 each) and then you had to figure out what the actual price was by the percentage applied against that. Crazy confusing. Now everything is worth what that "%" is but it really is the value of the product now.

By the way, all the prices are going to look exactly the same and rise the same since we're only 20 people selling a handful of product to a small fraction of the list. When you star building a real factory and upgrading it to sells hundreds a turn, you'll see the price of your product start to fall. When we get 200 people playing (probable open it up to entire website) prices will be all over the place.

Also, In Sol the prices are restricted, they have an increasing resistance as they go far away from a base of 100. You probably wont see the prices go past 200 or below about 50 in Sol.

Ok, I see. Yeah a $ sign or something other than a % would definitely alleviate much of the confusion there. Also what is the Vol representing? Volume obviously, but what does it represent in this context?

Is there somewhere you can find out the resources needed to make a product before you spend 100k making a building?

Here is a bug for you... I am able to build 100k buildings for nothing. Looks like upgrades don't charge me either. Bug or just for alpha?

Found a bug/typo in the tutorial.



The fourth and fifth steps are reversed. It should be Select Mineral Quarry, then select Precious minerals as the initial Product.

You sure it's free? You can add it to queue for free, but it shouldn't build till you have the money. I'm testing it myself now, I'll know in a turn or two.

Yeah I just built a chemical factory and I only had $10k. It didn't even charge me.

Didn't work for me, tried building a Mineral Quarry and got the message "Turn 41 Not enough funds to start construction"

So it seems only certain structures/upgrades are broken.
