  1. Cool, sounds like good progress is being made And yeah it's hard to balance autoresolve I imagine. I am one of those people that ends up wanting to use autoresolve as once I've done a number of air battles it feels more tedious as they always go the same way and it's just a solved problem. If you make autoresolve too weak then you end up being forced to play parts of the game you don't enjoy....if you make it too strong then the game gets easier beyond your ability/gear. I wish I had a good suggestion....maybe making it so that autoresolve follows the player skill or something. For example if someone completes two air combats against a certain encounter and takes let's say 20% damage then the autoresolve could complete those encounters with that result +/- 10% or something....that sounds like a lot of work to track though. The other option is to display the odds of the autoresolve. So for example a player has an encounter which displays 100% success and 20-40% damage taken. Maybe another encounter has a 90% chance of success, 80-100% damage taken, and a 10% chance of failure. That way the player knows which battles to manually play which could reduce the tedium. edit--------- There might need to be a second option for autoresolve too though, that being to be safe. For example if you launch two groups of planes at one target the first could launch long range missiles at the main target to weaken it then withdraw. Maybe the autoresolve could have a couple options. Option 1 would be 50% chance of success, 90-100% damage taken, 50% chance of failure. Option 2 would be 0% chance of shooting down the UFOs, 50-60% damage done to the UFOs, 0-10% damage taken, and 100% chance of retreat. These would depend on the weapons of course. Short range weapons could increase damage done but also reduce the chances of retreat or increase damage taken. Anyways I haven't really played much of the game so I don't know how well any of this would work, but maybe the ideas were worth reading.
  2. Thanks for the update I always enjoy reading these.
  3. Cool Always happy to see updates. I am really looking forward to playing this game.
  4. I love the idea of custom settings for difficulty If it's easy, could you have an option to just turn achievements off? For whatever reason I've come to highly dislike them as they are really intrusive. If it's not easy I can live with them on, I just prefer to never see them. Maybe just making it so you need to kill 1,000,000,000 aliens instead of killing 2 for example would be good enough. It's exciting to have the game getting close. I played it a little to give feedback and report some bugs but really I am just waiting for it to be finished before I play properly. I know this is still just early access so I will be waiting for a while yet but still, it's a mile marker.
  5. All sounds good to me. I have probably said this before but I am getting excited that things seem to be getting close to finished and I will be able to play through
  6. Yeah I can't figure it out either. The highest I can get is 86%. I recently played through Pillars of Eternity and they have a combat log you can look at and it actually has the equations used to calculate hits/crits/etc. I actually really liked it. Maybe "verbose combat log" could be an option in the menu? Anyways nice update as always
  7. Cool, sounds like things are getting closer to being finished....exciting! I am certainly looking forward to playing this game
  8. As long as you can set it up and can leave it forever I think it would be fine. If it requires attention like that awful overdrive mode for the generator in Frostpunk, then yeah that would be annoying.
  9. Cool thanks for the update The power mechanic sounds cool to me as well. It could give a few options for people. Working on the base and seeing what I can do to make things work better is a nice strategic touch.
  10. I am a big fan of letting people enjoy the game in the way they enjoy it.
  11. Cool It's always exciting to see a new release and all the good things that are added to the game with them.
  12. Could always make the orbital bombardment an option you can uncheck much like redhook did with corpses in Darkest Dungeon. Then it's up to the player to decide what they enjoy. I don't think you need to worry about balance for anyone who unchecks it.
  13. Cool that all sounds good Thanks for the update as always.
  14. I also just wanted to mention that I am fine with however long this game takes to make. I am perfectly happy to wait another three years. Or longer. I should have around another 40 years of life or so so sometime between now and 2062 is good with me.
  15. I read this a couple days ago and I think I want to mention that I really can't see liking the UFOs gaining stats depending on how many planes you send at them. As long as I can mod this out I will be fine with it but I can't think of a single game I've played where something like that hasn't decreased my enjoyment of the game. If I can think of an alternative I will write another reply.
  16. I like frame rate limits and I use them whenever they're available. Often times I want to lower CPU temps AKA how hot my room gets.
  17. embertrizzer is a bot advertising a casino so there isn't much point in talking to it. And my font is huge?
  18. Best dog food is raw. A balanced raw diet is much better than a bag of cornmeal with vitamins added to it. Not that this bot cares what I write, its cold silicon heart has no concept of the fleshy world.
  19. Cool I hope you guys get some nice time off and are able to have a nice holiday.
  20. Cool Thanks for the update. edit--- I just want to say I am really pleased with everything. I am really looking forward to playing through this game in its completed state.
  21. That all sounds pretty good I am glad the stress system is getting the changes you mentioned. It will make more sense and give players more choice(it may make more sense to retreat to save stress damage)
  22. I remember the one and only blu-ray disc I ever watched. It was a purchased retail one and it had multiple unskippable ads on it. That's just unacceptable. Even a two second ad that is skippable is unacceptable to me.
  23. Hopefully a lot of things like this can be corrected before the game is released.
