Let's do a 'thanks David' thread too
« on: November 16, 2018, 06:12:36 PM »

I was playing around and it wasn't until i hit on the Bombardment Preparation illustration that i realised just how many of these are around now. I'm relatively certain there weren't these many, and cool too, illustrations before... including the planet modifiers/industry/terrain, which for all intents and purposes are full scenes scaled down in tiny rectangles. Really brings out a lot of the context and humanity of our little spaceship arcade/sim game. And then we have a lot of the reworked material, portraits included, and a fair bit of icons that came with the new features to boot too.

And so much new text given the new interactions too. Just a great job all around. :)



PS: Sooo, anywhere we can get like the industry icons or the illustrations in higher quality? I'd love to use them as covers for my Youtube vids or phone background. :)

Hell Yeah!
I want to be a part of this THANK YOU DAVID thread for sure. I'm having so much fun with the new game play mechanics that re now enabled. For example I love the take a shuttle to the bar and talk to people of which you never know who or how many different ones,don't want to spoil anything. Trading  is a thing now and it works well. I made 8k off a simple supply run just by tabibng into the local chat from being alerted on the side bar event marker.
Everything feels more complete with purpose now. I can feel and experience the difference between being a trader,bounty hunter,even smuggling has been reworked with the info markers letting you know what merchant ships are leaving from and to where. I also appreciate the monthly salary were given to help with any rough starts or mistakes we might make.

While Alex is the nervous system and vital organs of Starsector, David's work spares us from that hideous, skinless abomination.

If there were a facility to like a specific post on this forum, this would be my new favourite. :)
