Post news Report RSS Farlight Explorers: DevLog Update 11

The Beginning of the Chemical Industry in Space is here.

Posted by on

Oil Base

The beginning of the chemical industry is here. This update add to the game the core of all the chemical industry machines. The goal is gather oil in order to produce fuel and petrochemicals that will be used to create other products like plastic.

The Petrochemicals fluid is used to produce plastic in the plastic factory and other future components. Plastic will be the base product of some future machines in order to produce other valuables products.

Right now the fuel is used to generate power in the fuel power plant, however it will be used in the near future to fuel the spaceship. The idea is that the Spaceship will use fuel to travel to other planets and the amount of fuel will depend on the mass of the spaceship and the distance, so the player has to build more efficient spaceships or some gas stations in order to fuel the spaceship in long trips.

Some Images of the new machines and buildings:

Hola, hace meses que no lo probaba el juego y hoy para ver su progreso lo e estado probando. Y la verdad que esta quedando muy bien, lo que no me gusta (e puesto un tweet con una captura) es que en una partida nueva cuando estas explorando por el planeta de pronto aparecen unas pantallas con información del juego, que te bloquean el juego y tienes que dar al esc y es muy molesto que cada poco te aparezcan y te paralizan el juego. Deberían ser un poco mas pequeñas que aparezca en un costado de la pantalla y que si quieres las lees y si no, que no molesten, no hablo ingles así que ni las leo, voy a prueba y error. Quería comentar también que estas haciendo un buen trabajo. Y cuando tengas tiempo a ver si puedes cambiar todos los menús al formato nuevo que quedan mucho mejor y es mas cómodo. Gracias un saludo

Hola, Muchas gracias por el comentario. Lo de las pantallas que bloquean al principio, es porque son las pantallas del tutorial, entonces tienen que bloquear para obligar al jugador a que las lea, una vez que las lees la primera vez, ya no vuelven a aparecer, a no ser que empieces un juego nuevo, por eso tienen que bloquear el juego, si no es posible que no las lean y se pierda parte de información. Si, es verdad tengo que actualizar todos los menus, todavía están los antiguos, a ver si encuentro un hueco. Muchas gracias por todo. Un saludo!
