Dear Frogboy and Devs,
Short list of pro's and con's I have with the release client so far. I am sure this isn't the only thread on it, but I'm feeling too lazy to add mine to an existing thread.
+Ship builder is as always awesome
+Love the custom races options available to us
+Map sizes so much more awesome then GC2.
+Specializations on the tech tree are nice.
Sadly thats all I have so far, rest is really solid stuff, but nothing that just jumps out at me.
Now for the cons, also including things that I wish were in the game at this time that I feel are a negative for me.
-No random option for the enemies. Unlike GC2 I cant have a bunch of races and tell it to assign me 8 random foes and not know who I am gonna get. Hopefully this is on the to do list.
-No option to Disable Tech Brokering, it was in the coming soon section of the beta client, but nothing yet in live client.
-Space Battles, feel a little boring, also the automatic camera from both top down and cinematic need some work. Free works fine though.
-Mini map changes its zoom level back to default instead of staying how far out its been pulled back.
-Sensor ships - Stacking multiple sensors on ships for both colonization and for warfare management seems a bit strong at the moment. Obviously this is one we can police ourselves on, but at the same time its soo good, I can't help but use it lol.
Thats all I got so far. I might opt into the new patch and see if it fixes any of these things, I haven't had a chance to read the notes on it yet. This is just the stuff I had jotted down during the weekend while playing. Thanks froggie for another great game though.
