Hey, Klei people! Are you still alive?

Touching opinion but it doesn't really change my feeling.

Few bugs have already been solved by modders.

Then if they're planning to solve some into the DLC, an update progress on the bug would be welcomed ("known issue", "solved", etc..). And don't forget that not everyone will buy it. A DLC is optionnal. So, if someone doesn't want it, he will get stuck with bugs into the game he has bought already ? Not the best way to promote the DLC.

Finally, this content update they'll bring will come with its bunch of dedicated bugs, "normal" and not alarming, but it will also highly probably change some existing stuff/mechanics, bringing new bugs to existing ones for existing content.

I'm afraid of all of that. That's why I didn't criticize the "work", but the "priority".

The content of the DLC may be optional, but basic changes can come to everyone. In fact they can add everything with a patch, but only if the "has bought the DLC" flag is set the additional content is unlocked.

Regarding the bugs in the forum, they used to flag bugs as "known issue". For the 10.000 reports similar to the already known ones they often do not. It just looks, they dont recognize, but they have all those issues on record already. Dont mix developers with the forum-mods.

Well some time this year means in max 3 months but i doubt it will be ready. Some bug fix would be appreciated, like the heat exchange bug that is currently going on.

My hype kinda died because of silence too like i just want it to be fed like they show up and say hey ppl we are trying X or look at this building design that got cancelled etc just flavor stuff to keep the hype on. Ill for sure instabuy the dlc because i love the vanilla and mods so much it just deserves it but the hype faded for sure im looking the fórum 1 time a month now only for example.

I virtually stopped playing a couple of months ago in expectation of the new content and bug fixing. I did check almost on daily basis if there are any news but didn't actively play. The greater the silence and push back the more estranged I become with the game.

@Nedix, there is no silence, they just said there is nothing new to announce

@Nedix, they could tell us every single day "nothing new here". Then there would be no silence. But would it help you in any way? I dont think so. Do you call your boss every morning "hey boss, be happy i´m well and coming to work today"?

@SharraShimada no, but he sees me every day and he asks me every time how am I doing and if everything is alright. It may be a far fetched example but in this scenario at least I have the feeling of connection, I know he is there and he sees me I'm there.

I would just be happy with the ONI team coming out with encouragements from time to time, even if there are (slightly) bad news like delays or other problems. I may not be able to do anything about it but at least I would feel connected. Just saying "the DLC will be launched in October" and then silence doesn't make me feel confident that I/we will have a release in October. TBH I somewhat expect them coming back in a couple of weeks saying the DLC release is postponed due to unforeseen events.

I'm curious if they intend to do any patches... are we gonna have to pay to get the game patched at this point? Because I am seeing plenty of elementary issues that should be resolved. And I don't care how they feel about being asked questions. And if they wanna throw out snide curt responses,then that's what they get in return. I have no qualms about it And so the defenders can just step aside imho.

@Nedix, but nobody from KLEI promised it will be october, they said "some time this year" but adding that COVID causes them difficulties to provide esimates and they cannot promise anything - meaning it could be next years as well. Also, they just posted info that there is no update on the topic and that they don't want to post meaningless "nothning new folks" messages, so I don't feel there is a point to expect anything more in upcomming weeks to make us feel connected. I'd expect them to maybe post something new around November and lack of update before that would be 100% understandable for me.

 

@Slvrsrfr, there is a quote for you, keep calm :)

The base game, which you currently own, will also see a large update when the DLC is released! Bug fixes, UI improvements, balance and tuning improvements, and base-game content updates will be synchronized across all versions of the game. So even if you choose not to play with the DLC, we're working to improve your experience as well!

Then I'm sure you won't mind naming them? They're often useful for nonsensical builds.

If it weren't for the fact I got buried in physics classes again at the start of September, I would've been contemplating posting such a thread.  You're right, Gurgel, the sudden change in the level of communication was noticeable.  Thanks for posting the thread.

I want to play 100K challenge but I wonder if I should wait for new DLC or just go for it now. Looking like we might get new DLC in 2021 I might even pass on it because of Cyberpunk 2077 and new exp for Elite Dangerous. I know ONI will take another 1000h+ so I must not tempt myself with this addictive game.
