w00t! Fixed graphics!!!
« on: December 02, 2009, 03:51:55 PM »
Just want to say that I'm really happy to have proper graphics finally.  I wanted to play the game the way it was intended, so I haven't tried it until now.  I'm around level 10, and I like what I'm seeing.  The conjoined spheres of influence are definitely an improvement.  I also think it's really cool to be able to sort seedlings by their best attribute.  It's a lot like something I suggested!  Makes me feel important.  It's a bit more interesting to see the core energy unrelated to the seedling energy.  Makes some ripe targets and really worthless fortresses, adds a bit of complication to the game.  So far the difficulty ramp seems a lot smoother, which is good.  More interesting scenarios too.  The reduced cost of trees has affects I can't completely define, but I'm not sure if it's particularly good or bad.  Seems like the trees usually produce slower now.  If that's true and it isn't just me, not sure I like that.  As to whether it really makes the game worse or better, again I can't say.

  My only complaint so far is the new combat sounds.  Very subtle compared to the little laser blasts in Dyson.  You can look at a battlefield with your sound effects turned all the way up and still hardly hear anything, and what you do hear doesn't sound like stuff getting killed.

I know it's a delayed reaction, but when the only bad thing I have to say about a game is one sound effect, you're doing something seriously right.

Anyway, woohoo!  Very happy to be able to play now.  I like it a lot.

Thanks for the post!

I'd like to do a lot more with sound.
