  After the tutorial section, you're dumped off into the deep end with few safety mechanics. 

...and THIS is what I love......."the deep end".....swim....doggy paddle...float, whatever you have to do to not sink. Oh and the sweet

I totally understand you OP, I've been following and playing this game since 2011ish.  I've been frustrated, I've been elated. I've been "just release already!!"    This is  a cool game....nothing much else like it out there at all. This is a Gem...which is being cut into a beautiful jewel ever so slowly, but boy, will it shine when it's done.

I too have done this. Kinda neat "digging" for info. Some might not like it....I find it fitting.

Purchase date of game is 9-30-12

wow....I've been following this game for years......playing it too. but words today, such as cash grab, lazy Dev, etc.etc. have been thrown around so much past year or so they've lost pretty much all their weight when being used to prove a point.

I've been playing video games for over 30+yrs. I've seen all manner come, go, fizzle, scam.

I do know this. I know a good game, this is a good game. I knew it was a good game when it was just barely combat...what early 2012? and I INVESTED into this game. I paid my $$, and I played every version to the nub.

I can see parts of the OP's frustration....I've had fleeting bits of it...SO? I'm invested, gladly so. I've invested into many a game, by my choice, understanding what comes with investments...RISK. I never have, never will get pissy, and *** over the internet my frustrations with what ever game I might be upset the end MEH to it all.

I seem to have a bad nack for trading this release. If anyone can lend tips or some thing to point me in the right direction, much appreciation will I have.

Shortages and trade disrupts, seemed to yield better profits in version 6. This time around.......nothin' much.

yeah, trade is a no go, I do agree food was exploitable last version. But now just being a humble trader? No, not happening. Which I love to do sometimes. Lean fleet that is focused on run about trading. I would like to trade (without Atlas) all the neat goods you took time to put in, and turn a worthy profit. Not ten's of thousands, but a good amount to cover bit of supply/fuel and a little extra in pocket.

Right now, I don't even look at those cool commodities. I do click on them to hear the cool sounds though.

With posts like this I completely understand why this hasn't been put to steam yet. I've been following and playing this game since it's pretty much first release. The updates have been at a steady pace since then. Gives me time to play it out, get bored (boredom is a choice by the way), load a mod play it out, put the game down for a while, come back play it again. Usually by then a release is out. Play the game enjoy new content and repeat. There is  no other game like this out. Simple top down, tactical, intense yet chill, and really FUN. I'm excited, and chomping at the bit for the next release. I get all gitty when reading the blog post about the upcoming goodies! I do at times get a tiny bit frustrated at the distance between releases, but I know it will be stable and totally playable.

I know Alex, and his team through this game and how it plays, integrity. I won't question lengthy releases, or spook others into thinking this game is "dieing", history dictates other wise.

I don't like posts like this, and I seem to see more of it now the game is getting more attention. So please don't bring the baggage of being burned by other games here.

We might own the game, but we don't own Alex and his time nor does he really owe us anything. We slapped $ down to play the game how it is now, done deal. I paid $ for the game when it was barely one system, two stations, and very little content....heck fuel had absolutely no purpose. But how solid it played spoke mountains and I knew I invested into something great.

Thanks for playing.
