      The soundtrack isn't quite ready yet. I'll reset the number of downloads when it comes out.

    2. Timothy Totten on June 14, 2016

      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.

    6. Chris Parsons 3-time creator on October 20, 2015

      Woo! Up and over just as I logged in.

    33. praguepride on October 20, 2015

      Yay I got to put them over the edge!

    34. Rui Figueira on October 20, 2015

      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.

    35. Scars Unseen on October 20, 2015

      I posted on /r/games to see if we can't get a last minute push.

    36. der Skischuh on October 20, 2015

      Just upped my pledge, too. We're so close now, it would be a real shame if we didn't make it!

    37. Richard Patching on October 20, 2015

      @Mikkel I'm hoping I can sell my extra copy of the game on Mars for a profit!

    38. Mikkel Christensen on October 20, 2015

      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!

    39. Richard Patching on October 20, 2015

      @Rui: Yep that's correct!

    40. Rui Figueira on October 20, 2015

      Got it. We need to leave the tier the same, but increase the amount manually instead of picking from the list, I think.

    41. Richard Patching on October 20, 2015

      @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!

    42. Chris Parsons 3-time creator on October 20, 2015

      @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!

    43. Chris Nobbs on October 20, 2015

      Can't wait to sit down and actually play this game!!! I had a close eye on it at EGX!!! Good Luck guys!!

    44. Rui Figueira on October 20, 2015

      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.

    45. Rui Figueira on October 20, 2015

      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.
