First two plays: impressions
« on: October 04, 2015, 06:27:56 AM »
The game seems amazing.
I did have problems with 9.14 and 9.16 with garbage, I really did not understand how to get people to gather it, having built two landfills in a singe area and it still did not solve the problem. Is distance an issue?
I liked that I had notifications on what was not going well and what I had to do, but I felt very limmited in expanding.
In the first game, by the time I had built a cute city, all other territories around me were conquered.
Second game I built a government office in the next availliable aera and had problems with garbage, and then all areas were conquered.
I can see the potential, and really really like what I see, but not being able to interact with the other races, I felt like I was playing a city-builder (a good one) where my expansion was limmited by my neighbours. Having read that the combat is not working still, and being warned by the planet, I did not start ttacking, (I also prefer being peacefull).
I will keep trying to get a smoother start, and come back with more impressions.

1 that sounds like a bug building trash dumps should have temporarily sorted the problem out your meant to be able to dump trash on your neighbours but that doesn't appear to be working right now. edit jus t did it in my current game on the acutions turns out that you need to have the responsible for the action adjacent to a territory of the race your targeting with it.

2 that quite simply is not meant to happen there's a hard lock on the ai stopping them from taking territory's around you I've seen a few new bloods having this issue you should report this to mantis/let Chris know about it directly.
