Thanks Thaiauxn,

It's great getting Universities and Colleges involved - a lot of the students we have the pleasure of meeting are incredible and are already developing great content - couldn't recommend it more and it benefits all involved!

Thanks again for your support

It's already sorted in the NEXT update :P Sorry it didn't make it in this one, hopefully the additional firepower that they have (as a temp fix) now will help in the meantime - the next build should also include Energy Turrets (Aka "Laser" turrets - Youtube.com ) and LAZER wallz... All adding to gameplay.

Thanks again for your support!

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...

Hi Wookienator,

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.

Jonny_T Jan 9 2015, 8:46pm replied:

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. ?)

Definitely needs camera shake and balancing, we also want to introduce spread on movement and greater accuracy with ADS/crouching etc. within reason.

We are toying with the idea of also removing the standard reticule entirely and adding a level of auto aim, similar to the old Goldeneye (weapon turns slightly to aim at target etc.) for when we update the enemies to have targeted/hit-box specific 'weak spots', i.e. head/exposed, fleshy areas. The trade-off then being that you can aim down sight at a reduction to your movement speed.

It's getting there Shakes :)

We are going into local tests very soon, but there are many bugs at the moment that need squashing and so we are getting as many sorted as possible before release! We are soon to announce a private test day held at the Epic Games Lab at Staffordshire University with 70+ people to see how it plays and to check for bugs. We will then a announce when the intended release date is for the soft-launch of the early access game via Steam. We have a LONG way to go before Eden Star is truly the vision that we want it to be, but that needs to be shaped by the people who have invested their time and money (you!) into the embryonic state of the Eden Star universe. That's what we always intended and what we want to see through.

After release we will be attempting to support as many people as possible in order to get the game running on as many systems as possible, any crashes crushed, bugs squashed and the game a little optimised to keep the framerate up. After that, it's where the real fun starts :)

Hey Shakes - did you purchase the Tech Demo? If so, you'll be getting an email this week coming to inform you of progress, a release date update and access to our roadmap :)

The tech demo is a proof of concept for the complete re-build within UE4 and I'm VERY happy to say that it's looking to be a great decision to move to the new engine. The video above is actually a few months old now and we're looking forward to showing you what comes next, we're just really wary of showing too much too soon as we want to deliver the best experience that we can whilst also delivering a true "early access" version ASAP.

There's still work to do but the main thing I can confirm, is that we're more likely to let you know if there are any major issues that will hold us up, rather than shouting about progress at this stage, simply because we want to focus as much time as possible to get the first "minimum viable" build to you, and make a worthy reveal!

Thanks again for your support!

Hey Zoombapup, great write-up, may I ask what funding body you are applying to if it's UK based? If you are UK based, the Creative England "games lab" fund is currently open for Grant funding - I presume that you are going for the SMART TSB fund? If so, good luck and I hope you are successful as the game is looking great.

Alas, I fear the imagination will always be wanting more...

But either way, watch this space Naik, I'm looking forward to playing that badass mishmash-game one day too!

Watched the video - really sorry to hear that you and brother fell out, causing such distress - business and passion for developing something amazing vs ownership, ambition and pride can be extremely difficult to deal with. I personally admire you and the team for pushing through with this, it takes a huge amount of grit to see a project through to completion, and then further determination to improve it to the extent that this game has been. Amazing work guys, keep it up.

That's the final goal - to allow ultimate self customization with a base/minimal difference in alignment to a specific class or archetype :) - we are keeping development simple and focusing on the gameplay currently; the differentiation between play-styles and customization will come down the line when the core gameplay has been refined and parameterised in order for us to balance and expand upon the potential combat/defense/building trade off that the player will be able to control.

What do you think, sound good?

Thanks BlahDog - Crit like this is really appreciated, we use the word "innovation" tentatively, but with this combat approch being an innovation (as we see it) of a genre, the community's input in tweaking designs and ideas is paramount to making the game fun and polished. The thing we need more than ever is for people to make suggestions and - if you can - tell us how you think the controls should work and how it should feel, even before we release the tech demo, so that we can keep a committed dialogue open with the people who genuinely want to be a part of making the game that they want to play - in short; help us make it your game of choice!

LittleHelper - not got a clue at all... You guys are completely justified in selling the game whenever you like - it's funny that people want to lambaste you for telling the truth about the fact it's not finished, just because you want to be honest with your fans and give people the opportunity to be a part of the development - this is admirable!

I wonder where this has been done before... LittleHelper - fancy going to post this on the Minecraft forums...??? Grow up.

Fully real-time and fully playable :) As with all of these things, it's pre-alpha footage and we are looking to further modify the physics in order to allow us to interact in specific ways with the broken chunks (we can't say too much more on that yet though...) but it's solid and works hand in hand with modified Apex destruction and PhysX rigidbody simulation.
