The next twelve huge posts contain a cheat sheet to make it easier to do upgrades.

They are set up with a list of the basic materials (things you can directly mine) you need and then a list of the things to craft in that order. It is all done top to bottom, left to right except where the more advanced item is found to the left of the less advanced one.

This way instead of constantly having to back up to make more and more items like “Handful of Bolts” which in itself needs “Bunch of Screws” to make you can make all the Screws you need at one time and then make all the Bolts.

This should help keep you from having to do extreme amounts of clicking just to make a single upgrade.

Hope this makes the upgrades a little less of a pain in the butt.

If this really helps save you time I wouldn’t mind my Glean game comment for this post being upvoted so it’s easier for others to see it as well. I’d like to help as many people as I can with this.

Oh and as a bonus here are all the in-game videos in one youtube playlist. It’s also annoying trying to view the whole story in game.

Solsund, I can’t even begin to imagine the amount of time you must have spent on this. I hope it helps people and they appreciate it. If you have any additional questions about the inner workings of the game, let me know.

We never imagined that players would be so annoyed with the high-tier upgrades. We made the game so that it could be played and enjoyed in sessions of 30 minutes to an hour. The upgrades are intentionally hard to make, as they are ‘bonus’ content that let you keep playing even after you get all story pieces and finish the game. You can get the ending without ever going past Tier 2 (that’s right, Tier Two) for upgrades, and we think that’s fine for the casual experience. For the hardcore, the upgrades provide plenty to still do.

The real issue stems from the way we designed it (30-60 minute play sessions) not being congruent with the way it is actually being played (sessions of many, many hours; some people even finishing the whole thing in one sitting). Anything can become a chore if done in excess. It’s like the difference between a 30 minute run awesome and a 5 hours run grueling.

I beat the game 100% in two sittings x3

I’ve been talking with Solsund, he has a lot of data and he’s planning on releasing the rest later after he gets some rest.

Leguma, it’s not a chore because it’s done to excess. It’s a chore because people have been complaining that it takes longer to make the upgrades than it does to go farming for the stuff to make them.

Making the upgrades is fun at first but quickly becomes tedious while exploring the game world is fun. Asking your players to spend more time in the non-fun section then in the fun section is not a very good idea.

If you wanted to make the higher level upgrades harder without forcing people to spend their time wading through a mess of icons and clicking then you should have designed things so that you had to spend more time exploring the world looking for things instead. That’s why I sent you guys the suggestion on how to reduce the tediousness of wading through all the icons to make the higher upgrades. Harder via the User Interface being a hinder instead of a help is not a great idea.

If I’m not burnt out in the end of doing all of this I planned on posting one additional piece of information that might help make this point stand out just a bit more, but first I have lunch to make for my rowdy bunch.

Oh, and for the record if you intended the game to be played in a set of smaller sessions it would come in handy to remember the users preference for Quality, Sound & Music so they do not have to change them every time they play.

with radar pulse what color is titanium?

 
Flag Post

Firstly, Titanium is a Light Blue color on the radar.

Second, this list is finally done barring having to fix small errors. This was quite the project to undertake and I’d really wish I’d gone the “long” route from the start instead of trying to find a quick way to do it.

I went from trying to work it all out by hand, to making a Spreadsheet that would handle the numbers, to modifying the spreadsheet to generate the text to just breaking down and writing a C# program that would do the whole thing for me.

I put twice the amount of time getting the flawed spreadsheet version working than the C# one took and that’s not taking into consideration the amount of time it took to enter each upgrade into the sheet and type out the results. In comparison running the C# program made the whole list instantly once I get it working and it contained very few “Oops I typed that wrong” issues.

Still, it was rather fun making the whole thing and I learned new things, which is always a plus.

How do I get Sizeable Iron Chunk? Been stuck ‘cause I can’t find or get it. Can’t dig below 100. It says Ordinary Iron Lumps can be used to make those, but apparently a 100 isn’t enough…

 
Flag Post

100 ordinary is more than enough, but you haven’t unlocked the recipe yet to create the Sizeables

 
Flag Post

How do I unlock it?

 
Flag Post

You don’t need to mine it to unlock the recipe.
The basic gems and metals are classified in 3 different tiers. Once you have 3 of a given resource, you can visit the research section and you will see the recipe to upgrade the material to the next tier. It’s a 9:3:1 ratio for gems and metals, and 16:4:1 for gasses.
