Long wait little play.

First of all great fantastic game love it! However once you reach a certain point your upgrades starts to take days to do which is fine, that’s understandable for a game of this type. It is only a problem when it is an essential component to my ship (shield etc.) where I cannot fight without it does it become a problem, because as you know once I upgrade my shield I’ll get in a couple battles and need to upgrade another component that when I’m without, leaves me vulnerable and unable to attack. So now the game consists of days of upgrading and little play time, I think if I am upgrading to level 5 I should be able to have my level 4 as it upgrades so I can keep playing the game, and not waiting days just to play a couple more battles before I upgrade again. Thanks! Keep up the good work!

Sexist edit, ty for dev response

Looking on the wiki, of the common crew, the max hp of women is 3 and for men is 4. It still doesn’t change. Also there are only 4 female identifying of the 14. Sure there can be some with a ‘masculine’ name with short hair. It’s not unusual, but they received a max 4 hp for that.

I know u don’t care what I think, but I think they should be equal. Even if they’re common folk.

I dunno, I feel like I got really into this game, sent a lot of money because it was heading on the right place, I love it, it’s addictive, but then I saw the disparity, and the wiki main page has a pic of the girl in a suggestive pose on the first page. It’s not wrong, have man doing that same pose for me and I will write this all off.

Look, I understand the creative process. You have passion when you make something for yourself and it’s good.

It’s a good game, but I got to call it as it is. It’s a reflection of society we’re heading away from.

At this moment in time it is sexist. I can see it evolving in the future when the devs do too.

And I can’t say it enough. Thank you so much for getting back to me. I will have to say this is one of the best devs in a sense that they are on the ball, get back to people.

And sorry for my attitude.

When getting new regular crew women gave two hp when men have three. Correct me if I’m wrong but I’ve purchased 13 crew members and it’s been consistent across them all.

Developer Response ,

Thanks ReviewBurger for writing. There are nearly 300 crews in the game. The overall balance of hp between male and female crew is almost identical. You can view all stats at our wiki page.

Absolutely amazing game!

I’ve been playing this game for roughly 2 and a bit years (Stardate 1027) and it’s absolutely amazing! The amazing ship customisation, game exploration and constant updates are like no other game around! And that’s the best part, there’s no other games around like this.

I have devoted so many hours, days, months and years into this game and I’m going to keep devoting time to it.

I would’ve liked to see more customisation into ships, eg; custom ship hull designs and a bit more storyline for the Federation, pirates, aliens and ECT.

The one critical item that needs to be implemented it the Dolores head storyline. Back in stardate 600 (for me). You could play along storyline to get Dolores parts, now all that’s been removed. And for a few days it seemed like a ship carrying random Dolores parts came along too, now that doesn’t show up?? The head, body, and a single leg has been sitting in my inventory for ages and I would at least like to assemble it.

However, despite my small preferences, this game is still 15/10 with everything from crew names to matchmaking, I wouldn’t recommend anything other than this game
