    Just a hint to developers what our group of gamers think about this frenzy of hotfixes.

    You decided that the game was good for Version 1.0. Since then you are pumping out hotfixes and updates almost every day. Its no fun to get big issues with game not working and belive me we just love this game and for now try get it work so its playable without a restart och server each week. Its sad but we play other games till this mess is sorted out...

    We dont even want to read all updates and fixed you try to get work. Maby a experiemntal version to run along with a working Core 1.x is better. We understand its hard to develop a game. But from a player view its no fun to restart the game each week to make it work stable on a dedicated server.

    Games do not get fixes people complain.

    Go figure.



    PS On the other hand it is healthy to play other games too. Monotony is not suited for humans.

    Fully fixed? And there was me hoping this was just a prototype for random ideas...

    As of the 1.3 release its pretty buggered for most people playing on servers. Granted, the devs are working hard to fix the game breaking issues.
    More testing should be done before releasing updates.
    People expect better from a game that has gone out of early access. Well most people do, except for the fan boys, who try to shout down people who say anything bad about the game.

    1. This happens many times, new features are introduced old ones improved. You need to brake some eggs to make an omelate.
    2. How many people are they. Meaning bugged by the bugs of the game in their servers? Have you done a poll or something? please share your results with us.
    3. This is fine and as it is suposed to be, otherwise people will complain. Are you complaining?
    4. That's what you think not what most developers out there think. You see most of the times new features make old and bugged ones obsolete.
    5 That is an assumption. Who told you that expectations are not met yet. Who told you that early access means end of development? Read the main thread about this very thing first. Most things are explained there.
    6. So what?

    1. Happy that you think its ok to make a game unplayable for some.
    2. Check out the threads.
    3. Does it sound like I'm complaining?
    4. Not sure what this has to do with testing more before a release.
    5. See note 2.
    6. ???

    OP's post seems pretty reasonable. They love the game but are sick of restarts - valid, good natured complaint. They're probably losing hours of progress every time it has to wipe.

    I do not mind restarting at all if an update add more features and content but, 1.3 didn't really add anything new so I can understand people's frustrations.

    Well, 1.3 did lay the groundwork for content creators to come up with some interesting stuff but, from a gamer's perspective, all it did is add more of the same that makes still unresolved issues even worse.

    To the OP:
    Have you ever played an MMO or a game like World of Warships?
    If so you may have noticed that those FULL Released and FINISHED Games - and yet they STILL get HUNDRED's of Fixes/Hot-fixes.;)

    And they still have the same bugs as when those Games were a few Months old...:rolleyes:.

    Not sure if MMOs are good example. MMOs are more likely to be like sandboxes, meaning developers add and remove and even change features often to keep the players interest high. This results, obviously, to bugs.

    Yea, you understand me. We love the game but just lost the motivation of restarting and spend more time on updating more than playing.

    Just a simple report to the devs that maby stop trying to add more and get it working properly for now. If it gets some nice updates or bugfixes a month its fine. But the endless patching with just days apart is just continuing.

    Patch 2020-12-24 EXP v1.3.3 (Build 3208)
    Patch 2020-12-22 EXP v1.3.2 (Build 3207)
    Hotfix: 2020-12-19 v1.3.2 (Build 3203)

    I hope all have fun in the game that likes it! Merry Newyear!

    There is a copy tool to move all your vessels and BAs to new games.

    Unfortunatly dont help when ships and bases dissapere randomly and new features corrupt the old saves. But yea its is tools that can do some work. But we prefere its should not be needed at this stage. We did so many restarts since some early alpha. Now we just want to play for a while ;-)
