The soundtrack isn't quite ready yet. I'll reset the number of downloads when it comes out.
Just wanted to note, I have received the link to download the sound track. It can only be used 3 times, and the first two redirected to the soltrader.net homepage and had no download dialog pop up. So I'm left with 1 download, and am afraid to use it until whatever the underlying issue is, is resolved.
Stick with it Chris, don't be discouraged. Carefully gather the feedback, even critical talk and use it as an opportunity to grow the game. Everyone knows Paradox games are problematic at release, but why people love them is because they never stop updating and adding features. :)
Congratulations, I'm really looking forward to seeing how this turns out.
We did it, people! Congrats, Chris!
Thanks everyone. It's been quite something. I really appreciate all your comments. Now the march to launch begins!
Congrats again, Chris!
Yay! Congrats Chris. Looking forward to seeing the updates from Sol Trader in the future!
Must be an amazing relief to have got there Chris. Congratulations. Looking forward to more updates and playing the game. :)
Wonderful news, well done Chris!
Well I'm here waving my flag. Congratulations and well done everyone. :D
We did it!
Outstanding job, Chris -- congratulations!
Massive congrats Chris, well-deserved!
... And looks like I might be modelling a custom ship for 1 backer ;)
The new lighting looks nuts!
Fantastic news, congratulations Chris!
We got there this time :)
Congratulations. I am very glad that you made it. Good to support a project from the UK, especially a software one.
Hell yeah! I cannot wait to get immersed in this game. Congrats! o7
yea! a slightly late congratz, very much looking forward to this
Congrats! We got there this time around ^^
Congrats! \o/ omgomgomg
Yay!!!! That's amazing congrats!!!
So, I leave for an Hot Chocolate and a Sandwich, and this is what happens? Sneaky!
Congrats Chris. :)
YES CONGRATS! Checking the site every hour today and I'm really glad it's funded!
This is really good to see, Chris. :D
I've been watching keenly and it's so awesome that you've made your goal!
This is great news to wake up to! I'm so happy for you that you made it!
Congratulations Chris :)
BOOM! This is incredible!!
We made it! I'm so grateful to everyone. Update to follow when I've calmed down!
Congratulations! Now let's see if we can make it through the stretchgoals :)
Woo! Up and over just as I logged in.
And there we go!
Yay I got to put them over the edge!
Yeah, I think Chris will make it. :) Still 8 hours to go. Less than 200£. I can increase my pledge a bit more if required too.
I posted on /r/games to see if we can't get a last minute push.
Just upped my pledge, too. We're so close now, it would be a real shame if we didn't make it!
@Mikkel I'm hoping I can sell my extra copy of the game on Mars for a profit!
I upped my pledge. None of this manual calculation business for me! (This is the perfect Trader attitude, right? Right?)
Crossing fingers for the final push!
@Rui: Yep that's correct!
Got it. We need to leave the tier the same, but increase the amount manually instead of picking from the list, I think.
@Rui Figuiera - You can manually change your pledge amount without selecting another tier. It's a text field at the top of 'Manage Your Pledge'. I think Chris will track those that have increased their pledge and depending on the amount give away one of the following extras:
£5 - Soundtrack
£10 - Extra game copy
£15 - Artbook
£75 - Hardback Manual
£95 - Lifetime DLC
Hope that helps!
@Rui: Kickstarter doesn't have native support for add-ons unfortunately. You have to work out the total of the add-ons you'd like, and increase your pledge by that amount (whilst leaving your reward tier the same).
Later on I'll confirm which rewards you actually purchased for your money.
Hope that makes sense!
Can't wait to sit down and actually play this game!!! I had a close eye on it at EGX!!! Good Luck guys!!
It's not clear how the add-on tiers work! :/ I see the option just to change the pledge amount, but doesn't show anywhere the add-ons.
Almost there Chris. :)
Going to increase my pledge.
This is what I don't enjoy about this process of crowdfunding on KS. I don't find it at all exciting to see projects this close to success this close to the end.
Fingers still crossed.
