      "Having to pay extra for features promised in the kickstarter feels like betrayal.

      submitted 2 days ago by xhritxhrit - 113th Imperial Expeditionary Fleet

      When I backed this project, I was told I would be able to customize my ship the way I want it, and there would be body-kits and paint jobs on offer.

      They said nothing about having to pay extra money for the body-kits and paint jobs on offer.
      Sure, they never said it would not cost extra, but it was implied.

      Would you be OK with having to pay extra money for literally every feature promised in the kickstarter?
      For example, the kickstarter promised Multiplayer. Would you be OK with having to pay extra for multipler?

      The kickstarter promised Trade. Would you be OK with having to pay extra to be able to trade?
      They kickstrter promised you could engage in combat missions. Would you be OK with having to pay extra for combat missions?

      The answer is no, of course not.

      Multiplayer, trade and combat missions were all promised in kickstarter, and if you had to pay extra it would be a betrayal of the kickstarter promise.

      Likewise, ship customization via paint jobs and body kits was promised in kickstarter.

      Having to pay extra for things promised in kickstarter feels like betrayal.

      Multiplayer: you will be able to control who else you might encounter in your game – perhaps limit it to just your friends? Cooperate on adventures or chase your friends down to get that booty. The game will work in a seamless, lobby-less way, with the ability to rendezvous with friends as you choose. This technology is already working, using a combination of peer-to-peer (to reduce lag) and server connections.

      Play it your way: Your reputation is affected by your personal choices. Play the game your way: dangerous pirate, famous explorer or notorious assassin - the choice is yours to make. Take on missions and affect the world around you, alone or with your friends.

      Trade: Buy low, sell high and discover the most profitable trade-routes. Keep an eye on the markets, supply and demand may create opportunities for quick profit. Unscrupulous players may even try distorting those markets.

      Fight: take on the pirates, or become one yourself. Engage in combat missions within a rich and dynamic simulation to earn a reputation, or perhaps you want to become a famous bounty-hunter – feared by those that you chase, but staying the right side of the law.

      Travel: Travel across star systems and between them. Risk leaving the relative safety of the Corporate-run space station to explore distant planets or stars. Space is big and you never know what you might find; perhaps a salvageable freighter wreck or some valuable asteroids? There are secrets and startling beauty waiting to be discovered by the intrepid explorer.

      Ships: save your credits and upgrade your ship. Get new weapons, engines and equipment and customize your ship the way you want it. Check out the body-kits and paint jobs on offer, give your ship that personal touch."

      @OS - I am fully aware those are not your comments that you copypasta'd. My responses are directed at the OP:

      "I financed the kickstarter"

      - No. At *best* you *helped* finance the Kickstarter to the tune of less than 0.4%

      "...to date I have not gotten almost nothing of the gameplay promises with the basic game."

      - Double-negative. Ouch. So, you *have* "gotten" more than "almost nothing: you've got something.
      How does it compare with the "almost nothing" less than 0.4% funding you provided? %^]

      i have 0 tolerance for EA/Activision/Ubisoft level of greedy assholery"

      praetor47 "they're still charging extra money for a feature that was promised in the original KS. i can understand (and even approve) charging for fancy nameplates, but what i don't tolerate is charging for half of a feature that was promised 5 years ago during the KS pitch. that's the proverbial "drop" for me"

      praetor47 "> Did FDev never played other games selling cosmetics?
      dude. they don't even play their own game (unless there's a massive shitstorm and then they fire it up to see what all the fuss is about), what makes you think they play other games? so that they could see some good ideas that are well implemented and functional and not repeat the same mistakes that companies made a decade ago? preposterous!"

      "I financed the kickstarter, and to date I have not gotten almost nothing of the gameplay promises with the basic game. The game had been promised translated into various languages, including Italian ... to date the FD is not going to translate anything and even they download the blame on the Italian community ... saying that we have to do the translation ourself.
      I bought Horizon in preorder ... and the whole season was delayed in 2017: the contents of this expansion has been disappointing.
      engineers: nobody has asked for it
      landing on the planets: a beautiful thing, but the planets are completely empty, there are no NPCs that move with srv on the surface, there is no vitality.
      during the season (I hope in 2.4) the FD had spoken of new srv ... nothing in sight.
      Now they give us megaship and structures in space ... which by their own admission: at the moment there are only things to see ... things that have no type of gameplay around.
      I spent more than 40-50EUR in cosmetic ... to support the game ... that's enough ... I do not buy anything more and I will not do more pre-orders.
      I love the IDEA of game but at the moment I do not like how the game is now and how the FD talk with the community."

      Mission System is a disaster, Support is a disaster, game is a disaster

      Login Open - 0 Missions
      Login Private Group - 0 Missions
      Login Solo - 0 Missions

      How are we supposed to run missions to advance Naval Rank with stupidity like this?

      I then decided maybe it's just a badly RNG coded system...

      Same again, 3 logins, 3 0 missions boards.

      Decided 3 is a lucky charm, and Woah! Boards suddenly had missions.

      That's just the last hour of trying to get missions...

      Basically, it concerns me greatly, that FD are more interested in creating novel additions than actually fixing the stuff that is broken, of which, there are lots.

      Over the past week....

      * Numerous crashes to desktop - all reported, not a single word from FD...
      * Numerous NPC interdictions who then suddenly disappear...
      * Numerous Hangups, where the system just freezes...
      * Numerous Posts to the Bugs Forum, not a single reply from support...
      * A major crash by the Docking Computer, putting the ship in a place I could not get out of. Lost 2m+ bounties plus a 5m rebuy...
      * Numerous bounty ships suddenly High-Waking with no 'Surge' mentioned...
      * Numerous fighter bay ships, performing impossible feats... (GunShip I had rammed against an asteroid was able to deploy a fighter through the asteroid!) (An anaconda manged to dock a fighter even tho I was blocking the docking lane?)
      * Numerous scan jobs completed by another commander...
      * Numerous scan 'Mission Failed' occurrences. - The real defining moment of this, is an FD developer reporting they couldn't find the bug.... That is just scarey !
      * Numerous Charity Donations giving 'Mission Failed'...
      * One occurance of a 3 wing NPC fight which when killed, immediately spawned another 3 wing, which when killed, immediately spawned a 4 wing.. which resulted in a rebuy of 5m...

      The take-away from this is that the current gameplay is Frustratingly Broken to hell and back, and support have nothing to say and FD developers can't find the problems.. Where does that leave me? At a huge loss of time and credits!

      Maybe, maybe, if I persist, I might get my Corvette before I die of old age.

      The game is ridden with bugs, unfortunately... Some are still there from day one. I remember the times when small bug fixes used to roll out every week or so. What happened to that? Why do we have to wait for months for a major update to get something fixed (and something broken again LOL)?

      Is this the case of consoles screwing us over again? As I understand it, there are some extra procedures involved with rolling out updates on Xbox Live or something. But why do we have to keep up with consoles since there is no cross platform gameplay anyway?

      Now that the PS4 release is on the horizon (ba dum tsss!) that got me worried even more. The SRV scanner will probably remain broken for another year...

      Hey guys,

      So, I'm on a moon and I finally found some land mines for a mission in doing. I get back to board my ship with my SRV, but it makes the loading noise but won't take my SRV. Found out, it was because because I don't have a cargo hold on my ship. So, I try to jettison my land mines so I can at least by a small rack and come back to get the mines and complete the mission but...

      Whenever I jettison the mines my game crashes with "an unrecoverable error" or something.

      "The dev team simply found some issues with the beta client. Rather releasing a game client that would be 1) extremely prone to crashing, 2) generally unstable, it was held back so that the remaining bugs could be resolved and wouldn't make it to live."

      Rant: Just died. I'm fucking done, Frontier. Fix your god damn game. (self.EliteDangerous)

      Specifically the UTTERLY FUCKING STUPID piracy system. I just barely escaped this other asshole after getting interdicted for the 80th time today (not an exaggeration), I jump into a system to go to a station and repair my 11% hull and broken canopy, only to instantly be interdicted again and killed before I can do anything.
      The reason? Because I have 3 fucking engineer commodities in my cargo bay. And yet every pirate acts like I am carrying the haul of the century.
      Getting attacked by fucking Anacondas nonstop because of 3t of cargo worth less than 10k credits.
      This 0 cargo = ignored, 1 cargo = hunted by 10 ships at once in NavBeacons/RES + interdicted 3 times per star system idiocy has GOT TO GO!! I'm honestly too fed up with this game. Not buying S3 until Frontier fixes their blatantly broken systems that would really only take a minimum of effort and imagination to fix, yet they refuse to do so and pile on more and more half-assed new systems that barely work at best.

      Yesyesyes, I know it's been a long time, but since you're still about and I logged into KS for the first time in *ages*, I thought I'd reply :o)

      No, I would say no-one was incensed about it not being an 'intensive MMO type play'. Quite the contrary. The problem was that Frontier Developments promise an offline mode and DRM free Rewards, which is the absolute antithesis of an MMO and then claimed the game was technically an MMO all along. People wanted to be able to play the game offline, that was promised and Frontier Developments took people's money. Then it was sneaked out just a month before launch that they had dropped it - unilaterally - and that it was a "creative decision". And... then Frontier Developments and Braben deteriorated from there. People pushed and Frontier Develpments eventually caved, but they dragged it out for so long that many just accepted a measly offer of a refund or just gave up. I think only Chargebacks and Letters Before Action got people their money back fully. Terrible behaviour.

      Hope the 50 mods worked out for your daughter. Or... at least some of them. Probably not good to install all 50 at once :o)
