v003Update


Greetings Pioneers,

Our latest update is more of a hotfix. There have been a few balancing changes and options menu bug fixes. We are working hard on new features for the next update but this hotfix should help with some of the issues people have been having. Enjoy!

Additions, changes and balancing

  • Resolutions have been filtered to keep the writing in the game readable.
  • Available resolutions are now updated from your specific graphics card and/or monitor.
  • Gauss Cannon usage seemed a little weak and it’s weapon spread was large making the weapon not as popular as it rightfully deserves. Increased the Damage and reduced spread to account for these.
  • Turrets Damage has been increased to better help fend off Splintermites

Fixes

  • Found and Fixed multiple crashes with Mining, including while mining rocks, trees and a delightful one when mining your own Eden Kit, you monster.
  • Squishing more Resolution Bugs. Another possible fix for Black Screen issues.
  • Fixed several Major Bugs with the Eden Kit UI when switching between items inventories.
  • Fixed a bug where the Radial Bars/Outer Reticle would remain invisible with Construction Mode
  • Fixed a bug where Master Audio Volume wasn’t being properly set in the Main Menu, but worked fine when in game (Note* the volume for the Logo Movie is still on and we are looking into this)
  • Re-mapped # key for showing HUD enemies killed to ‘K’ as some users with different keyboard layouts could not use the key properly
  • Fixed Invert Y Axis in Options Menu to Apply when loading into the main game

The Known Issues list has been updated to reflect the current version, fixed bugs have been removed and we've added bugs to the list that have been found since release. Please continue to let us know about any issues as well as any suggestions so that we can work on making Eden Star the best it can be.

The new build is Wonderful!, I however cannot seem to find the eden pack..
Am I missing a beacon or is my understanding of the interface convoluted?
No "M" map button concerns me.
That said, Had a wonderful run, just need more navigational tools. Or I dont see them.

Hi Jet, it's early days still so there's no map yet, however if you look on the cumpass at the top of the screen, there will be a bright yellow marker that shows where your Eden Kit is!

At the start of the game there is a short placeholder Cutscene that shows debris falling through the atmosphere - follow the pillar of smoke :) you'll find it. There may also be a few other places to check also...

Thanks Johnny, I saw the yellow indicator, though it never seemed to trans pond to the terrain.
I will give it another go this morning.
Thanks for the speedy reply.

I'm untested. But since nearly no game fulfill promises in early access, I can't trust my money before release.

Hope you will be an exception.

Still, until the release.

Hi Dreamer, thanks for the comment :) We hope so too. Our aim is to make the game the best it can be through Early Access.

Keep watching videos and other players responses to Eden Star in the mean time, and hopefully you will like the features we have in there already.

Is there anything in the game you're looking forward to seeing in particular? We would love to hear from you about it! :)

Tempted to pick up the Unreal 4 Pre-Alpha on the 30th but I'm not sure if I'll be able to run it, my specs are:

AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series (need to upgrade and want to invest in something good but can't afford to for a while)
Vram 4GB
Intel Core i7-3820 CPU @ 3.60GHz
Ram: 16 GB
(and OS Windows7 SP1)

As much as I don't mind having to lower the settings I got to try the Unreal 3 Demo before and no matter how I changed the settings around it had some bad fps/lag, which now has got me worried for purchasing the Unreal 4 Alpha as much as I am very interested in Eden Star though.

Hi Emiya,

If you have the UE3 demo you will have access to the UE4 builds and beyond! Although we cannot guarantee that it will work on all systems at this stage, if the Radeon HD7800 is equivelant to the Nvidia GTX650 then it is a card we will aim to support as soon as possible. The rest of your spec should be more than capable as we are currently run a minimum of i5 with 8GB of Ram.

I think I'd pay 60 bucks for this game, totally looks like a high-class game :)

Appreciate the compliment BloodRaven. We want to give everyone the most bang for their buck with Eden Star. As you might of heard we'll be continuing to develop and expand the game with everyone's input after our initial pre-alpha early access release. We can say for certain that you won't be paying as much as $60 for it during early access :)

Question (because I'm feeling too lazy to go to the forum):If you ever make more games (which I can only hope) would you plan on ever making this free to play or free to play for a limited time?

Free to play is something that we have always been massively into as a concept! The whole team can understand that free to play has its place in core gaming after seeing he success of DOTA and others, our main concern would always be that it's fair to pay and that the gamer is getting something that they want for their money when they do pay.

Truth be told... There is actually a full free to play component that was designed for Eden Star and has been pitched to major publishers, however to put something like this in place it costs greatly and we would therefore not be the owners of the world. So, Early Access with a lower up-front cost gives us both the flexibility to hear and act on our communities collective requests, but also gives Flix the control over making the game the best it can be, which in-turn helps build community and therefore, one day (if we make enough money to pump back into the game) attempt the crazy free to play idea! (Server costs alone are a HUGE commitment, plus data protection, hack protection etc.)

How would you like to see free to play implemented? (Other than the game being free to initially play, do you have suggestions as to how you would be happy for it to make money whilst you play? Eg. Skins that don't affect gameplay or new gameplay/areas to explore for those who pay Etc. ?)
