Re: [Suggestion] More (and better) colonist names.

ah ha.

I got the TNG reference. But not the Buffy one. (which I should have, I watched enough of them). :D
My reply was a bit too dry though. Too much explanation, not enough fun. :lol:

Re: [Suggestion] More (and better) colonist names.

No Riker or Summers when you have Picard and Schneider? :D I just went through the "Top 100 Surnames" type lists on websites for countries in Western Europe and picked out the names that were familiar to me. I think I may have dipped into USA, Canada and Mexico too. While working through each list,...

[Suggestion] Make doorways free

There's two problems here. Firstly, sometimes building a doorway requires a material block that is on the other side of the doorway. Currently that works, because colonists just walk through holographic doors before they are built. But if doorways were always free, as long as a colonist was availabl...

Re: [Suggestion] More (and better) colonist names.

In an attempt to /bump without actually /bump'ing and aiming to make life easier... I've searched for some of the most common surnames, from the UK, Europe and other English speaking countries. It should be a big enough list to be unique most of the time. :) Smith Jones Taylor Williams Brown Davies ...

[Testing 0.56] Video bug report. Base Beta.

Last night, Simon put a hotfix live to address some of the outstanding issues with the food-prep stations. I did another video of a play-through and still encountered some unexpected deaths. My problem is that the save file doesn't recreate those deaths. I had my suspicions that colonist Y. Jenkins ...

[Testing 0.56] Video bug report. Base Alpha.

Here's a video I recorded of myself playing Maia 0.56 looking for bugs after the "chicken fix" went live on Friday evening after Simon's live stream. The whole session is about 2 hours. I've tried to include timecode links for all the things I think are bugs or need review so you don't need to watch...

[Suggestion] Extra settings

I just noticed that "revision 2309 : Email alert reduced volume" on the development blog. Which reminded me of another long standing "Oh, I should probably mention <that> sometime". The immediate thought was about game volume(s). But there are some others too. I'd regard all these as nice to have. T...
