If officers and admins can be renamed, I like to rename my character too.

Is there any chance for a "metal sink" in the future if there isn't already? Being able to look at other markets to see where there's a demand is great but my metal stockpiles build up faster than i can fidn places to sell at a profit?

Are there any plans for more;

- planatary conditions ( more positive one's ) there's a lot of negative one's but few positive's?
- special items ( synchotron & nanoforge are great / cool ) will we see more we can use with our colonies?
- industries / structures - will we see more of these? & upgrades for each!  ;D
- any plans to add more skills to fill out the skill tree's?  any chance some sort of bonus will return for putting a point in the core stats instead of it just being a gateway to putting points into the next tier  :-\  is bit underwealming to gain a level than not get anything from it if your using your point to access the next tier  :-[

many thanks for keeping the updates / content coming!!  ;D

Maybe; not specifically looking to add something to do with metals, but if something were to come up that would neatly fit in here, I'm not opposed to doing that, either.

Nothing I would call "plans", no. As far as skills specifically, I've got some ideas about some adjustments to make, but not quite ready to talk about it, or 100% decided on it!

Thanks for your support :)

Speaking of officers, can you make an option where they die when their ship explode? I hate it when they're the only survivor of the entire crew. Captains should go down with their ship, not flee in an escape pod.

Changes as of January 31, 2019
  • Fixed issue where torpedoes and other AoE projectiles hitting a station's shield could damage other modules technically behind the shield.

How about the same issue with EMP system?

There's at least one mod that added that behavior.  It was terrible.  Ship AI is pretty good these days, but it still occasionally derps and gets itself killed for no good reason; that's only really tolerable when you can restore the ship after the fact.  Good, high-level officers are not easy to acquire; losing one would be a reload-the-game situation for me.

Wyvern is 100% correct about the math.

Same here as Wyvern.  I would reload the game if an officer is lost.  I place Reinforced Bulkheads on all ships without officers so I do not reload the game as soon as I lose a ship.  (The few ships that cannot spare OP for Reinforced Bulkheads either get an officer or do not get used at all.)

Nexerelin features (or featured) officer death, and I reloaded a save the instant that happened.  (I think I might have turned them off after I saw officer death.)

I would only tolerate losing officers if losing my character or fleet resulted in "GAME OVER" instead of wipe-and-respawn.  In other words, I chose to play game with permadeath option, which Starsector does not have.  (Iron Man is not it.)

Agree with above, if it is implemented I would like it as an option defaulted to off.

Nexerelin does have it as a (requested tbf) feature and I generally always turn it off. There was one point in a pre-0.9 patch where I had updated Nexerelin and forgot to adjust the rules back to disallow officer death and lost a level 20 cruiser because it derped into an enemy ball for a fleet that otherwise would've been an easy mop up after a couple hours of play. If it was just the cruiser I could've easily replaced the cruiser, but grinding good level 20 officers are a major pain.

I agree with Wyvern but I wouldn't mind the option for those that want it. Maybe a toggle in the settings file?

Yeah, when I asked it as an option I thought about a toggle in the settings. I only play on Iron Mode and I delete the save whenever my fleet get wiped, I guess it's kinda extreme lol.

I had no idea Nexerelin had it as I play without mods.

An intermediate option could be for officers to lose some skills upon losing their ship.

It's not a hotfix, and "until it's ready(tm)" :) (I do get that it's been a bit; I'd like to get it out asap, but it's just a lot of stuff.)

Officer death would be more tolerable if you weren't always pretty limited on officer count (even with skills). If you could have, say, six or seven officers at base level, occasionally having one top-tier character die due to a stupid decision would be more tolerable because you'd probably have some at-or-near level 20 officers to move into their place and could pick up a new one to train up on smaller vessels. Granted, I'd be fine with officer death with the current system. As it stands, the power curve in this game for competent players gets to "basically unbeatable except by high-level [REDACTED]" within a cycle or two at most. Officer death way to keep the player's effectiveness down without the more blunt tools of economics would be welcome imo.

As for everyone's "I'd just save scum"—that's a personal choice you're making that makes the game less challenging and interesting. If Alex were to balance around things that frustrated certain players enough to make them save scum, the whole game would suffer.
