    Hi Galactic Survivalists,

    Today, we do not release another update but something equally important: our new "Feature Survey 2018"!

    Please head over to the survey page, vote and rank your most-wanted features and tell us which global game features you prefer:

    http://survey.empyriongame.com

    The available answers in the survey consist of features that we already discussed internally, thus they can be labeled as "theoretically doable". But as you all know, sometimes seemingly easy additions can turn into real challenges. ;)

    Apart from that, it is most important for us that the results of the survey will give us dedicated feedback about the global direction of features YOU want to have added to the game!

    Thanks a lot in advance for taking the time for completing the Feature Survey and do not forget to also vote for us at the INDIE OF THE YEAR AWARDS 2017!

    http://www.indiedb.com/games/empyrion-galactic-survival

    Yours,
    Empyrion Dev team

    PS: Are you missing a feature from the survey answers that has been discussed in the forums? Stay tuned for the feature reveal of Alpha 7.5 next week ;-)

    You are doing great work with this game keep it up. Only other thing I can stress is this is a Sci-Fi tittle but it still needs to feel like things could be real. One example is Factories as they were in 6.0 where ships come from no where. For me that does not seem believeable and should be more believeable. Ships that are 2x's size of the biggest POI being able to land on planets and fly around on them does not feel right. Landing maybe but it should be expensive fuel wise and they really should be heavily limited in flight time and ability to move.
    Most important to me. being able to find a base or any ship that is underground or otherwise out of site with no radar is wrong. Even on foot if I pass over a Base I know its down there? Taking this away will balance PVP a lot. Would go a long ways toward making designs matter more. With turrets being restricted underground it is pointless to build on planet. If I have built my base down on the bottom of the planet it should be undetectable. However I should NOT be able to bury my base to where even I can not get to things. Perhaps doing away with remote access via CP is needed. Also maybe having to interact daily with base core (or when log in) should be needed. So that cores are placed where invaders have a chance to get to them.

    There is no player autentification in the survey, so anyone can vote, even people not playing the game !?

    How can this survey be representative of the player base, given it's totally open to anyone ?

    I can vote from my mobile then from another computer...

    Great survey! :cool: I'm having trouble voting though. I'll keep at it, but they don't like guest votes.

    This survey can be skewed any way if anyone can vote without even owning the game.

    I'll ask a few friends to vote for bigger planets...

    Interesting yes, didn't vote for geothermal/solar power tho.
    Went for bigger planets, smarter AI combined with crouche & prone (woohoo), and ... more.
    Voting for guests results in : Try later.

    Let's bring direct excitement back in to the game !

    So legitimate players living under the same roof have no possibility to vote (only 1 per ip address?) but anyone on any other address can vote ? Lan COOP is greatly disadvantaged by this...

    I see no point in a survey if many items from the last survey are not done yet. Is this a trick to postpone what players asked for in the last survey ? Why did the "wheeled vehicles" disappear? Are we stuck with the motorbike forever ?

    I can vote from McDonalds later today.

    Where does this "guest vote" info happen? When starting the survey? At a specific question? At the end?

    It happens on the indiedb.com page where the vote should be cast. When I click "Vote Now" I get a message in the upper right corner stating that guest votes are only counted every few minutes and to try again in a few minutes.

    Would be nice if the voting was linked to your steam ID (for the servey), and only those who own Emyprion, if someone wants to buy 20 coppies of Empyrion just to vote then hell they doing us all a favour by supporting Eleon. (but obviously it'all already done so maybe for next time)
