Question on the "Locked Enemies" on main menu
« on: January 24, 2016, 06:03:21 AM »
When it says an enemy or a boss is locked does it mean it's unlocked? Why would a counter for locked enemies climb and not decline? (Why would it start at 0 for that matter unless it means unlocked enemies.)

Sorry it's just not very clear on what that is indicating :P

Screenshot?  Locked items shouldn't have any count.

Opened your save. My computer wept. Switched to the ST planet and ship icons filled my screen, so I zoomed out. Game told me that it _was_ totally zoomed out. You could seriously walk from one end of the inner grav well to the other without getting your feet cold.

Just trying to figure out what all the locked enemies/items/condemned enemies mean (Since they started at 0)

Click on statistics.  Maybe that will help clear it up.

I did that to see if it would help explain why things were being locked rather then unlocked. They are still there (the count matches up fine with the main menu.)

Maybe it isn't as clear as it could be.  The locked stuff is that way until you meet whatever conditions it has to unlock.

Those counts are a quick way to see how much you have left to unlock.

The only thing that confuses me is why it all starts off at 0. Shouldn't it all be locked already? Or does it just show 0 until you play your first game?

Maybe the category doesn't have anything locked in it yet.

Well this just raises more questions. You say that a) You're supposed to be unlocking the stuff and b) Everything starts unlocked and is going to lock up over time. I don't see the logic.

The file I have the most time on still has locked items.  Right now not every category has locked items but future additions can change that.  That's more or less what I meant.
