Percentage Complete
I would like to know how complete this game is and an on-going counter system. I bought this game long ago knowing it was not ready to be played, and have not installed it for that reason. When I do play it, I would like to get my enjoyment out of it then. I don't want to try it now and get annoyed and place it in the bad game bin never to look at it again. I come back to the game every month or so to check on its development.

It would be great to list all of the features that are in the releases now and all the features that you want to add later. Each of those items should have a percentage next to it indicating where it is in development.

I see the Pinned items for State of the Game and Tasks in Development, but I am looking more for an overall look at the game in its development stages.

It would also be nice to see some general ideas on dates for a fully beta release. Sure, these will change but you can update them as issues arise that would push it further.

Well, it's version 0.03b and I guess it will be over when it reaches v1.00

Thank you for your questions! The game is (in our humble opinion) less than 1/2 of its way through completion. At this point, our users are able to create amazing ships, customize different features, capabilities and colors of the ships, and launch them into space. They can then engage in enemy spacecraft and control their ship via keyboard or mouse. What we are hoping to accomplish before full release will also include joystick control (not just keyboard or mouse), different weapon types (right now they are all projectile based, we'd like to introduce lasers etc.), ship salvaging to get new modules for your own ship, and additional inventory options.

I hope I was able to answer your questions sufficiently, if not, let me know and I'd be happy to clarify :)

Thanks for the reply Kaypix. This is great for today, but I am looking for an overall completion thread to be started and kept up as things progress. That way when I visit from time to time I can read that thread and know where each item is at.

This would help project two things in my mind; one, a better read on where the game is which would reduce the threads on buying an early access title, and two, create more anticipation for the next release/patch knowing that, Joystick controls are at 10% and laser weapons are at 15%. Each item could also list what is next for its development. (i.e. Laser canons produce light but are not yet calculating damage).

Just my 2 cents.

I hope they add more. I would like some monetary system and diplomacy.

I think it would be great if they allowed mining and pirating along with the ability to join or lead a faction or squadron of ships. I don't think people will be very satisfied with just lasers.

Dude, read the patch notes and make your own estimations if you have to be so specific. It's not like there are clear percentages to be had anyway. You don't have to be drip fed information, let them develop the game instead. Besides you got a great answer :)

Babyface and Char, thank you both for your suggestions. Unfortunately we cannot give exact percentages of each mini project because they can fluctuate so much. Our announcement thread does show each patch and we do update our state of the game thread regularly. Approximo, thank you for your candor. We appreciate every one of our customers and the loyalty they show to our team.
