Topic: NovaLode / Known Issues

1. Occurred for me for the first time today, and quite often. About every 5 minutes 1 of the 2 of us would get kicked. I was going to post in the bug thread, then I saw this one.

2. Started happening for me after I upgraded to mega swing. Where the swing goes off and where I am standing is occasiaonally 2 different places. Well, the appearance of standing halfway in rocks occurs quite often for me when I move diagnoally into somewhere where I’m surrounded on 3 sides.

3. Has never occurred to me.

Topic: War of Omens / Oak pack (and others) chances - come help

I’m always amused at data from small sample sizes. Here are the oak packs I’ve opened:

I| 100
II| 23
III|10
IV| 1
V| 1

so according to the packs i’ve opened, it’s just as likely to get an epic as a rare, even though that’s not even close to being the truth^^

Well to be honest, I haven’t seen anyone else doing it, but I only use 2 fabrication bays, so I don’t see what’s happening in any of the others.

Topic: NovaLode / Suggestions

I have a suggestion that’s I’d actually prefer to not have implemented for a while XD

I think the finished jobs in the fabrication bay should dissappear after a set amount of time, 5 days or a week or something. Some people (like me) use them as extra storage for craftables that they don’t have room for in the item storage. For now, it’s great that they don’t dissappear, but when the game is released and more people start playing, it’ll be really annoying to have most of the fabrication bays filled up with stuff that people are just storing, or from people who have left the game for whatever reason. While this isn’t a pressing issue, I feel like it should be addressed before the game is released.

Just a couple of minor things:

Despite having spared no expense to buy my character the full Nautilus Corp. outfit, he still has the audacity to sometimes appear partially or fully nude before me in the “character select” screen. Well to give him some credit he leaves his briefs on.

The space horror debuff caused me to run through an explosive rock. This is difficult to duplicate, and it might have just been a 1 time thing, but I still feel like posting it. However, it did save me. Passing through and getting hit by that 1 explosive rock saved me from 4 others that I had set off with my mega swing….

Topic: NovaLode / Bugs

I just encountered an interesting bug. When splitting mineral stacks from your mineral storage to your inventory, if you use the keyboard to input a value with a “1” or a “2” in it you use the item in that slot. I threw a couple of random sonic grenades before i figured that out.

We’re obviously talking about different things here about the chains. I’m talking about the xp value of the chain increasing, not just getting more because i destroyed more rocks. I did some tests:

Chain 13/2= 136 xp
Chain 13/4= 147 xp
Chain 13/6= 147 xp
Chain 13/8= 147 xp
Chain 13/10 = 147 xp
Chain 13/12= 147 xp

So obviously, the 10+ chain does award the same xp as the 4 chain, thus i have no motivation to work towards it. I’ll just mine everything during the 4-combo part and if the chain dies after that I don’t care. My suggestion is having it look something like this:

Chain 13/2= 136 xp
Chain 13/4= 147 xp
Chain 13/6= 154 xp
Chain 13/8= 162 xp
Chain 13/10 = 180 xp
Chain 13/12 = 192 xp (these are just random numbers, not anything calculated)

Topic: NovaLode / Suggestions

A couple of suggestions that may or may not have already been suggested, I haven’t thouroughly read this whole list:

An upgradable map. I feel the map leaves a lot to be desired, once you get used to it you can use it well enough, but to a new player it’s almost worthless. Maybe have the first upgrade show walls, and the second show the bedrock/mineral formations in mines and more details of boomtown etc.

Stack splitting is something that definitely has to be changed. Having to click, for example, 4000 times to spilt a mineral stack to the size you want is very time consuming.

The chain giving increasing xp for each level of chain. I’ve noticed there is an increase between the 2 and 4 combo chain, but that’s it. There is no incentive to pace ourselves and try for the 10+ chains, right now it’s faster and gives the same xp to just mine everything we come across regardless of how much we need for the current combo.

I know this has already been suggested, but I would also enjoy seeing a way to locate our fabrication jobs. Now I only use 2 fabrication stations, so I know where all my jobs are, but in the beginning i couldn’t locate what I had made a couple of times.

Something I would like to see for the more advanced players would be some way to start multiple jobs at once, like 5 pyrofiles for the contract station. This wouldn’t be very high priority on things to improve of course.

Maybe once the frequency hacker is fixed and back in the game a repair drone that drops from it to repair damaged equipment. Well, equipment is cheap enough to replace, but that would help for example if our inventory is full and something breaks. We wouldn’t have to pitch something to buy a new pickaxe.

Maybe instead of having 3 sets of storage/vendors/mission boards/etc. around each of the drillship terminals having 1 set in a central “bazaar” area for all our boomtown needs that’s equidistant from all of them.

Topic: NovaLode / Bugs

@ prospector, I have the same problem with the mega swing causing lag, but also it may just be my machine. Also, with the normal skill this never happened to me, but after I upgraded to the mega swing occasionally where my swing will go off and where I am standing are 2 different places, but if there are explosions near where it goes off I still get hurt (I’m nowhere close).

The davis rebreather (basic) has a graphical glitch, while it does work, the maximum oxygen it will show is 25 litres.

The contract station at the western terminal is inaccessible (at least for me), also I can’t use space to interact with the westen drillship network, although clicking still works fine.

I’m sure you guys are working on this since it was already reported and you removed it from the shop, but the frequency hacker doesn’t work. I got 1 from a hidden stash and tested it, but nothing happened when it procced.

Topic: Clash of the Dragons / Draft Reports - Official

IGN: Ssss
Draft ID:382872

I submitted a bug report as well, and I don’t really care if I’m compensated or not, I just wanted to inform the devs of the bugs I encountered.

First off, I was given an npc limit of 6 in this enemy draft, and as I’d drafted nearly all npcs, I was stuck with a really small deck. Secondly, my opponent in the first round was afk, but in the second round of the match I was given the defeat after they auto-played 3 times in a row.

Topic: War of Omens / Chrome Performance Issues

I can play skirmishes just fine using chrome, but depending on how it’s feeling that day 75-100% of my multiplayer matches end in “mutual defeat” because i “lose my connection”. no problems in multiplayer using firefox.

Topic: NovaLode / Bugs

A couple of bugs I’ve noticed:

The upgrade “Plasma Tip Proficiency” doesn’t work. I have a plasma tip equipped, but I only get a buff from the tip itself, not the upgrade.

I haven’t personally tested this, but it was reported in chat and I don’t see it here so I’ll post it. The gear “Frequency Hacker” doesn’t work. Nothing happens when it procs.

I’m really enjoying the game! keep up the good work!

Topic: NovaLode / Starting a Company

Thanks a lot for responding! I always like games where the developers are active and communicate with the players better! A couple of suggestions I can think of would be for the overmaster to show a list of available companies when you talk to him, and being able to apply from that list. Another suggestion would be for the other tutorial quests to award the player a total of 30 tokens, letting the player decide if they want to start their own company or use the tokens for other things. Well, that last 1 could lead to several 1 man companies….

Topic: NovaLode / Starting a Company

I also made a comment, but I think it’s actually better to put it here so…..

Unless a way to get free tokens is implemented, having to pay 30 tokens for a tutorial quest is a really really really bad design. Sure, you can join an existing company too, but that still leaves the problem that someone is going to have to pay real money to allow 19 others to complete it for free.

Topic: War of Omens / campaign bonus

yeah 2 or 3 days ago the only 1 with the “no continues” removed was chapter 4. the chapter 7 criteria is no continues and no war cards used.

Topic: War of Omens / campaign bonus

Would there be any way of making the bonuses on the campaign slightly easier? I don’t mind it being difficult, but as it is now it is simply gambling, especially for chapters 4-7. Chapter 4 isn’t too bad, as long as they don’t draw stampede repeatedly, but the second battle of 5, 6, &7 can simply kill you on turn 3, no matter what you do and i feel like that is kinda stupid. Well, to be precise, for chapter 5 it’s simply not letting you take your third turn, as they play strategem 4+ times in a row. Which happens a LOT, maybe not on turn 3, but i’ve been close to winning several times, only to have that happen.

Maybe adding more/different card resctrictions, and removing the “no continues” condition….

Dear Xerros, sorry for theinconvenience. Please be advised that you may obtain the fragment after beating the player, but it is not 100%. If there is a fragment in the award window, that means you get a fragment. And if you obtained a fragment, it will be kept in Synthesis section. You can only synthesis the blood bead when you collect all 5 fragments. Hope it can help you. Any further problem, please feel free to let us know. Best regards.

Not 100% huh… that’s too bad. Guess it was just bad luck the only time i didn’t get a piece was the time i really needed it… Thank you for the reply

Topic: War of Omens / balance issues

Originally posted by Schattensang:

I’d suggest adding some health to it. It’s an object after all, so we should be able to destroy it. That way we could do something against it.

I also like this idea as an option to balance it! maybe make it unseducable or something though…. I think being able to seduce shrines wouldn’t be a good idea.

I also like KingdomDefender’s idea, but i think the dev’s are keeping the “destroy on death” unique to metris.

and as far as malediction and infighting go, an easy way to counter with an ally deck is to play higher hp allies.

Topic: War of Omens / balance issues

I’m sure there are others, but my biggest issue with the balance of cards right now is shrine of rebirth. It is WAY WAY too overpowered. My suggestion would be to either add 2 to the cost, reduce it to 10% or maybe even 5%, or not let it proc on coins. I’ve never seen it NOT proc at least twice a turn, if even “just” on a coin. Also, having a stolen coin I play go back to their hand is really annoying, but I don’t feel that part has to change.

Topic: General / Bug report

I’ve been inactive for the last 5 or 6 months, but since i came back i have been unable to summon small raids. It tells me it is being used…. i have 109 runes, and even if i had summoned a raid before i went inactive, it should have timed out a long time ago, letting me summon a new one…

Actually, I vaguely remember not being able to summon them before i went inactive, but i’m not sure about that.

Topic: War of Omens / Make a limit on cards hold.

Going infinite isn’t OP, at best it’s an average win condition. as vrdn22 says, the other factions might not have this specific win condition, but they do have their own. For example the game usually ends the turn rite of war or right of clan are bought, and they’re both a lot quicker to play than going infinite. Metris can steal your win condition, or cancel it or whatever they want….

I’m sure it’s not really worth the effort to program it, but i would kinda like something along the lines of when you hit 50 cards in your hand, or played 100 cards on your turn you automatically lose. That would be fun against the 1 or 2 green trolls i’ve played who don’t kill you after they go infinite. Of course now that there’s a conceed button something like this wouldn’t matter, but i still like the idea.

Topic: War of Omens / Release Notes - 2/27/14 (New Tutorial!)

Yeah the tutorial is fine. you can’t play around and build up a long time with your fully upgraded deck, like i tried at first, but if you follow the tips you should have no problems beating it. Also, synod is one of the best vespitole cards, 100X better than serf.
