Actual Game Discussion Here
Seeing as nobody else has taken a step to do this, I guess i will, Having backed it with kickstarted and being eager to play this title, Personally i think the price is completely justified with the amount of access we are given. But im not here to talk about pricing etc.

Ive played two games of th is so far (Got dragged away for DotA after the second) and found that i ended up seriously overcommiting to energy production, setting workers on assist tends to eat a LOT of your energy and inturn freeze production. Anybody have any good starting builds or general strategys to go along with? Im currently playing this like i did after the ballance changes in Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance.

[UberGaf] I'll try to keep this thread moderated to only gameplay discussion. However, you'll probably find more varied and in-depth discussion on the Uber PA forums. There is a forum open to all and an alpha-backers-only forum.
Edit: some typos

Streaming again, PA and some discussion/gameplay for anybody who wants to see it. http://twitch.tv/crazymonk

I'm still experimenting with builds but my early thought is that getting energy and metal storage out early is going to be needed. This helps to overcome those temporary dips in resource rates when you're building something. Assisting on building seems to cut the creation time in half but increases the resource costs during building by 250% so there is a definite loss there.

So you kinda have to bounce between "Do I feel safe and can let this build over time" or "Oh god i think hes going to attack soon" with a bit of agression between on your decissions, the 250% increase is pretty interesting and something to keep in mind

Did the fix the 30 second responds time for units ? it was funny to see corpses attacking buildings but would rather have seen the fight where they died :).

although im pretty ♥♥♥♥ed like most other people but id really like to know abit more on what game play is like, so what are the biggest things that make this game a better version of supreme commander? other than the obvious inter-planetary warfare thing :P

Yeah, The steam version is the Galactic edition, There are cheaper versions, tbh it was listed a bit poorly but stuff like this happens, If you want a complete game, its already good in its current state (If a bit buggy) In september/august its clearly going to be really good. Looks extremely promising.

I will throw a livestream up in a few minutes if anybody is still interested, will talk in chat about the game and get some opinons, Just helping girlfriend with some family trouble first

Is anyone having issues with the Advanced Aircraft Factory not completing?
CentralUsagi Jun 13, 2013 @ 5:26pm 
Yes, I am having the same issue as well. Every time I build the Advanced Aircraft Factory it starts construction in the centre of the planet.

Remember this is still alpha, and they only got the random planets in so they are working there way through the more complex stuff but want to build around a stable "alpha"

Several Alpha testers are streaming on twitch http://www.twitch.tv/iampetard/b/416506906 look at his or look for Planetary Annhilation on twitch.

everybody thinks the game sucks and they are not going to buy it but it is very unfinished for gods sake this game is only in alpha so youve got to give it a chance.

So when i start the game all my units and buildings a invisible so anyone know how to fix that?
Mio the Meepomancer Jun 13, 2013 @ 5:50pm 
Define Inviable? When i connect to a game (Quick mach region) after selecing a spawn location and all players loading in, i select my commander and begin production right of the bat, is the commander not letting you build anything?
Edit: Realized you may have said invisible, A patch just came out that MAY fix that but i have no idea, Sorry !
