hi. I’m curious about your game for some time and, since i NEVER preorder a game, i was waiting for a “let’s play” vid to see if the game is interesting.
youtube.com/watch?v=e1pneo-x … 3o8Bs8nHwg
Since i watched the ten parts, i think i’m interested ^^. I’ll wait a steam release to buy it.
I just have few questions, relative to this let’s play vids.
(And since i was looking the forums, i I agree completely with this feedback: viewtopic.php?f=31&t=8391 )
In the vids, all characters are low ranks (beside really few exceptions) and have few friends (two or three most of the time) no matter their rank’s job; which, in my opinion, spoils the fun. In the vids, after 15 days of play, the player just have to send an invit to be friends and everybody accept it. I find this weird and it make hard to imagine that 499 other characters are present in the game since each of them know only one or two other people.
Is that will remain in the final game ?
I was wondering about the lack of away missions but I saw your comment on the 10th video: bug ^^. Ok bad things happen sometime.
Other point is bothering me is the fact that since the 6th or 7th vids, the player seem to always do the same things (same events again and again for example). I would like to know if, for example, being friends with some characters (like the ambassador) can induce special events ? Does npcs can invite our characters (ok it’s a sim, our character is the central piece but everything is evolving according to our character and, imo of course, it’s a little too much) ? And did random events can occur (beside away mission) ?
In fact, i just to know if some randomness will be include in the game (beside away missions wich, for now, only trigger a save loading^^).
Thanks for reading.
Edit: ok i just finished to watch the last vid and it seem that the player have less problems with “friends” just in posting comments on their wall rather than invinting them to events. I can resume what bother me in one word: immobility. Npcs react only when the player do something, they don’t seem to evolve, nor their relationship between them (in good or bad), all their carreer development seem to fail etc… I know the game is just in beta now, so i’ll wait and see the next updates ^^.
