I was having same install problem on first run but managed to install on second run, i did change something don’t remember what
Now my feedback (i will give my feedback not just for current state of the game cos i know it’s pre-alpha and many things are placeholders but also what it would be in my taste for final version of game. NOTE:this is my opinion and i know we have different taste in games and priorities);
(my specs: i7 6700k stock speed, gtx1070, 16gb ram 2400mhz,asus maximus 8 ranger, 1440p (2k) 144hz asus monitor.)
I set gfx settings at max, extreme gfx 1440p resolution, didn’t watch my fps but it is running flawless i would say it is running not below 90-100fps anywhere even in combat, except when near planetary buildings but i read somewhere these are not optimized yet so just wow regarding optimization and performance.
I had one game crash and system freeze and it disabled my keyboard after restart so i had to re-plug it to work again.
FM is awesome, i would leave it this way not make it easier like some demand. We need to interact with ship speed managment and dedicate it our time and attention, not making it one click arcade skill-less feature, we need to fly ships not teleport them.
Again FM is awesome and feature that allow direct or target mode is perfect too.
I’m flight simmer so i hope this won’t change, i even cheers if they make it harder and more complicated!
Also i hope once alpha is released it will support joystick and trackir.
I like the keybinding as it is, it’s very friendly, camera suite is perfect too (PLEASE DON’T CHANGE IT)!
HUD and COCKPIT: I really love how this works in regard or switching HUD modes, i like 80’s sci-fi cockpit type (Alien) but i think it need to be much more polished.(i’m aware it’s still work in progress but i had to say)
It’s surfaces need to be polished and first person view more distanced to be able see more cockpit interior.
What i don’t like too is that system wheel and HUD being followed by view, i mean for me it would be better if it’s stationary and integrated in ships instruments, current one doesn’t give me realistic feel of cockpit, i have to say it’s arcadish (again this my opinion and feedback, i understand every taste is different and this is not final version of game).
PLANETARY AND STAR SYSTEM TECH: i only saw those few planets/moons around that purple gas giant, i don’t know is there more planets or are they planned but it would be nice if there are planets more distanced form current ones so some farther travel is required, this seems to close (i love all stages of flight not just combat).
Also it would be nice to have planet with oceans like that one from trailer (that planet from trailer looks perfect), also i thought i saw somewhere desert planet with sand and wrecked ships or buildings in screenshot thread (that one is tasty too).
Are those planets in the game? i even saw posted pics of some trees!
Overall planets look amazing, rendering is perfect except that earthlike moon surface is missing vegetation and a bit thicker atmosphere would be nice on some planets.
Atmo entry visuals and clouds would be great to have too!
SOUNDS: Atmo entry sounds and shaking effects are perfect, what is annoying is that “let’s do it” repeating sound message and ship’s engine/drive sound is not so good (don’t take this as an insult but interceptor sound fartish).
Stations look great but seems empty and too cold, some light effects are missing (I know it’s work in progress).
This is my feedback and suggestions, i hope it will help!
Now when i tried game i don’t mind of delays take your time and keep up the good work.
THIS IS NOT CRITICISM JUST WANTED TO BE HONEST AND GIVE MY HELP, IT IS MY OPINION AND I’M AWARE IT’S MATTER OF TASTE SO TAKE WHAT YOU LIKE FROM IT AND IGNORE REST, I AS INDIVIDUAL I’M NOT IMPORTANT, MAJORITY IS!
