Post by dczanik » Wed Jan 30, 2013 5:54 pm

Hey guys,

We all want items that we can improve the game. Can't guarantee we'll get to them all, but if you have an item you'd like to see in the game, put it here.


Logs of conversations: Yes. That's on our list.
Smoother ship animations/angles: We're working on it.
Run in X resolution: Beta 1 will have this.
Mouse support: On our list.

Other items:
De-Cleansing Mod
Hyperspace ship history of where you've been.
Show planets you've already mined.

I would really like the de-cleansing mod to be an on-off option in the game.

I started my first playthrough of the game last week (first time I ever played Star Control 2), and two days ago I apparently lost the game.
I later figured out that the game needs to be completed within a specific time period, but I felt that I had just started my adventure. Therefore I would
really like support for this de-cleanse mod, so I can play through the game without worrying about this time period.

History of where you've been in HS. Including where you can select a time range, or replay your travels in sped-up real-time.

First read that as where you've been in High School. Interesting. Not sure why you'd want this though. ???-smf To record adventures? show where you've been?

It's on our "To Do" list. I personally hate a time limit on a game centered around exploration.

To remind you which planets you've already mined, I guess.

"Logs of conversations: Yes. That's on our list."
"Mouse support: On our list."
"History of where you've been in HS."

Some of these sound like they'd also apply for the non-HD Ur-Quan Masters... are we working on getting these wishes into vanilla UQM, too?



Another wish: ability to mix-and-match the original soundtrack with the remixes (i.e. original Hyperspace theme, but new planet landing themes)
KYAAAAAIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEE!

More ship angles should be your top priority I think. The graphics are reasonably up to date now but the 16 ship angles will scare away everyone new to the star control universe.

Will the ship angles be optional?
