First off I'm going to start with the positives and say I truly believe the game gets better from one update to the next. Alpha 8 was a great progression with getting rid of the green walls on planets. Alpha 9 has some massive art improvements and I think with some trial and error I think the logistics sytem will be great for gameplay. BUT the range of weapons in this game is pathetic. I know this isn't a simulator but the range of weapons in this game makes WW1 rifles look high tech. Basically nothing in this game can be killed until it fills your telescopic sights. The base minigun turrets can't hit a drone until i'm able to engage it with small arms by which time its kind of pointless. I mean they fire a 15mm round which should have a range of at least a couple of Kms. I feel the nerfing of weapons range is simply to make up for poor AI. Anyway I would be intetested to hear others on this topic and want to make clear I support the direction of the game but this issue really ruins the immersion a bit.
