Hello Dyson Community & Feedback
« on: May 20, 2009, 09:26:56 AM »
Gentlemen, this is a truly fascinating game.

I am a game designer who can really appreciate creativity in simplicity, so I will be following your game to see what happens next!

I have just began playing the game and I already have some questions and what I think may be a bug.

Q: I can't figure out when I can begin to plant new Trees on other plants.  I will have many Seedlings flying around but I will not have the option to plant any of them.  Then what appears to be randomly, I am able to begin planting.  What governs this?

Q: I noticed that sometimes when I give the command to plant a Tree all of my Seedlings begin to bury themselves.  This only ever results in the growth of a single Tree, but I lose all of my Seedlings in the process.  Is this a bug or a feature?

Q: When playing the first level I was unable to complete it because I was unable to move to a planet in the top right.  I could not reach is from any of the closest planets.  Is this a bug or am I missing something?

Great game guys, I can't wait to see what else comes of it.

You need 15 seeds to plant a single tree. (note that there is tree limit aswell that might make you unable to plant a tree)

Try another planet. I seem to experience that planet with most energy often has most reach. Also sometimes it looks like it's just outside the ring but it actually reaches.

Actually, in the first level, a lot of persons has reported the "unreachable" planet.

Hi.

Since the ol' Command'n'Conquer I've not been playing RTS games.

Currently I play CounterStrike:source and Civilization IV:bts.
Previously I have been spending countless hours on CS1.x, Civ 1-current, and Stars!

I stumbled upon Dyson on the Steam-system, and it caught my attention immediately.

I have played thru the downloadable demo, and a custom level.
Very impressive!

I'm definitely purchasing, as soon as Dyson is released.

Brilliant to hear. One of our goals is to make a game that has its own identity and can be picked up by people who are not super trained specialist RTS/4X players.
