Feedback 13 hours into the game

Recommended Posts

So I've been playing the game for 13 hours now, I'm still on my first colony on cycle 85. I'm running development build: CL#208689.

Things I'm most satisfied about this game are:

  • The game gas a really good general feeling the cute and stylish art style and the sounds and music make the game very pleasing to the eye and ear.
  • The tool-tips are the best and the most explanatory I've ever seen. Having some 10 minutes reading and exploring the various tool-tips is as equal as having a tutorial explaining those things.

Things to improve on:

  • The game lacks a pressure overlay - I'm having a base with clean air but very low pressure - It'd be very helpful to see where I'm lacking pressure.
  • I would enjoy having the crafting recipes require several different materials - for example the heat insulating tile should require both abyssalite and raw minerals.
  • Having a way to turn valves off - maybe by disabling the building.
  • Have a end game goal like building a distress beacon and surviving X turns to be rescued. (saw this idea in other posts)
  • Ability to move certain things around - have the ability to move animals against their will, move mopped up water - mop up puke water and drop it in storage tank to be processed.
  • Have duplicants sweep a resource type - the only way to get them to pick up only the coal is to make a storage compactor for only that resource and set it high priority.
  • Have a steam generator as a machine instead of making a whole dedicated room for it.
  • Have machines that run on heat as a resource (probably liquid or gas plumbing) - refrigerators using "coldness" and distillers using heat.

Things I dislike:

  • The game seems to lose the in-game resources over time (losing mass over time) - Water disappears in machines, coal burns out, building tiles destroy Fluid/gas they were built on. I'd like some more cyclical systems - with the loss of energy (gaining heat) in the process.
  • The game tends to build up lag over time (usually running for longer than 4 hours it starts showing problems), restarting seems to solve the problem.

That seems about it for now, If I gather up more feedback I will make another one like this.
