Hello,

Is there a way to increase the supply drop from 3 per week to 6 or 9 per week? Or increase the Filament amount from recycling? I've been getting the same items over and over again, and It's been 300+ hours without getting the items I want nor i was able to get enough filament to print them.

Or is it possible to purchase filament somehow?

 

Thanks.

Great, another games time and effort focused on the wrong aspects.

We still can't even build the poi structures and 1/2 a dozen glitchy mechanics are still causing issues but yeah. Hope the developer is having fun playing dress up games.

Of course, they should improve/fix these issues as well.

1.2 k hours. I should have all skins.

I didn't notice the supply drop until I was at 240h of playtime, and all i want is some wallpapers to decorate my base.

 

I wish they increase the drops from 3 to 6 or 9, or at least if we can purchase some tokens for the skins.

Any time a developer starts adding stuff like this it's to pad a game and extend its life. We need content and working mechanics. Not skins, that's more of a bonus but completely unnecessary. Especially considering steam workshop had plenty of retexturs for free. With no wait penalty.

You see this tactic in mobile games alot and live service games.

This game has been out for years with a single DLC and consistent ongoing support and updates. They've likely not made that much from the game given how niche it is so from a business perspective, it doesn't make much sense to even be supporting it anymore (especially when compared to other studios). The fact the game is still being updated with singificant updates is amazing. I hope they keep pushing the "dress up" game to the point where people can spend more money on it to keep updates alive.

I hope so. And I like the skins anyway. I am just waiting for critter and plant skins and skins for tiles. This constant gray of the normal (floor) tile is boring and bland. I hope they will add different tile skins for each type (air flow, insulated, etc.)

But I don't know why you believe they did not make much from the game. I read that the sales numbers were very high over the years. According to articles, ONI is the second most successful Klei game (after DS). 

Regardless, I am willing to pay real money for skins as long as Klei continues the regular support/updates for this amazing game.

Currently sitting in the top 100 on steam.

get yourself some True Tiles

I like the mod and appreciate its creators' effort and creativity.

However, I usually don't use mods because I expect the developer to handle this properly. Also, mods are sometimes buggy.

But I believe Klei can get some artistic inspiration from this work.

You don't trust Klei in this regard?

At least they already established the supply closet. And so far, it looks good. So, I will give them time to prove themselves.

nope.

I spent too much time in the game code for that.

there are reasons the FastTrack mod is able to double the average fps for lategame colonies that are not limited to "the mod dev has insane skills"

Klei's attempt to add decorations and dresses on the game is, at best, odd, and at worst, concerning. You can already make clothes on Textile Loom and Clothing Refashionator, and those game are in-game buildings that create clothing that impacts gameplay, since Snazzy Suit and Primo Garbs give decor for dupes and around them, and although not that impressive, it can help in cases like decor bombing dupes in rockets. Not only that, but using gameplay clothing overrides decorative clothing from the Supply Drop. The Supply Drop stuff is purely cosmetic.

I do quite like the decorations/dresses added to the game, but the system is simply out of place. ONI is an offline single-player only game, where this kind of monetization is almost never heard about, because simply the market strategy for buy once, gets the game permanently is the chosen choice for making money. May I remind you that their earnings don't come from only the games; their store with plushies and shirts are a thing, and I would be surprise if they made little money compared to the games.

Also, as pointed by SGT, mods do already satisfy the needs that the Supply Drops try to fill, and mods are constantly used by the community, so the "need" for more decorative stuff is already supplied by the community. Dedicating more resources for fixing bugs/making more content would clearly me the best option.

So monetization is clearly coming to this system, because if it was intended to be free, why would they add this weekly drop system? Just a waste of time, if you look as something free. The reason I said in the beginning it's "concerning", is that adding this kind of monetization to the game is redundant, since you can just download mods, so something greater could arrive and make the game worst. Because either the devs are wasting time, or they're trying to make more money, even tho I would be surprise if they had any financial problems. They got more games being made, like Rotwood, they're backed by a big tech company, Tencent, and if anything, they could just be more transparent about (which most likely will not happen).

As long as the monetization stays cosmetic, we shouldn't be worried. But as long it impacts gameplay, it will not be good. So yeah, let's hope this new system is more than a redundancy other than a problem.


Note: I tried to check Klei's announcment about Tencent and the post cannot be viewed... suspicious: https://forums.kleientertainment.com/forums/topic/126355-studio-announcement/
