The 'stores' screen would really benefit from a total of current minerals, as well as an approximation of what something will break down into when recycled. I'm thinking something along the lines of a re-coloured #of enemies nav blip -- one for each mineral -- next to the individual items.

On a related note, an indication of what resources a project will consume - always next to the minerals would be nice as well.


I'll put up some pictures in a bit.

I found it rather annoying if I was wasting minerals during recycling, so I got into the habit of checking the R&D screen every so often.

I usually check R&D too, but having minerals in stores would be nice (and it would only make sense too Wink )


Ugly job with it I know, but it works.

The red bars next to the current minerals are what's required for the current project (the '+' one the purple meaning more than 100, 0 on the green meaning, well zero). It would be nice if the red bars would be there on the fighting screen too (so I know when to quit mining and go back and research/build more)


You have to wonder, with all the control you have over things in this game, what to build, where to go etc.. what does the captain actually do? Razz

The Captain? I'm the damn captain, she just doesn't know it yet. I'm slowly but surely gaining the confidence of the crew. Muwahahahahaha!

Anyways. Good ideas, maybe something they can implement in a patch, but doubtful. Considering the game was feature complete some time ago Smile

It would be nice. Hey devs, what do you think? Smile

Nice try with the photoshoping, if you had PS 7 you could use the heal feature to blend things more clearly.

A good idea and it clearly works, fairly large modification to do in a patch though. Currently we are tied up doing a foreign language version for our Russian publisher (hurrah for publishers).

Plus, it isn't like this is a bug, in which case we would move to patch fix it as soon as humanly possible. It's a good idea that would ease the process of managing resources, you would save a few wasted gems and save swapping between stores and r+d quite so much.

So i'm not sure it really warrants a major game modification, such things take a lot of time to do and need a lot of testing if they aren't to introduce bugs. That takes time away from working on the next project. It's a big ballancing act really, how much would it really improve the game (although it's definitely a good idea), how long would it take to implement, how much testing would be needed, etc. Confused

Believe me I understand, my cousin works for EA and I've been doing dev work for Blizzard for the past couple years.

Just to clarify I didn't mean a bug fix patch, I meant revision patch, as in, feature patch Smile

Generally these are hard to produce under any circumstances, the finacial and personal time put into the various points are sadly fairly high even for something that seems so simple.

But still, something nice to be able to do. Perhaps something to think about for the sequel(oh please oh please oh please) ;-P

Oh I do. That's but that's just a quick cut and paste job so you know what I'm talking about. Smile

If you want to see some of my more "finished work" (completely and totally unrelated to Starscape) go here Very Happy

I'm using the same name, so I should be easy to find. (were it not for the fact there's 380 messages in that thread)

Cools. I used to work for Adobe as tech support so I got my hands on all their stuff for free(legally of course I worked there and they handed it to me).

I still get free upgrades.

Training is as training does. I got really into photoshop and illustrator. Not to mention Acrobat.
