What I miss on this game

Before starting, sorry for my bad English :sweat:

I tested that game in a friend's computer before buy it and its really awesome and beautiful. But there's some reasons that I think that I probably don't buy this game. Stuff that other games of same style have:

:s x2 x3 speed
I tried to build a temple on the Sandbox mode a little far of stockpiles. Its a little temple, but constructors carry the stones so slowly and on this moments it's not fun at all. I'm just waiting for more than 4 hours.

:s Detail level option
My friend have better graphic card on his computer than me. But meanwhile I play the game the computer are BURNING! I'm not sure if the game can run on my PC. I miss option that change the skin models and chose less polygons; disable some shaders and use less quality textures

:s enemy base or something
On Conquest mode, meanwhile i built, I was thinking about if enemy bases are growing and how probably be. Then, when i go to first "enemy base", I just found 3 or 4 low level corruptrons. No base, no decoration, no growing... just some week enemies that apears when I'm near. A simple tree trunk lying with a corrupton sitting on it would be less disappointing.

:s Resource Balance
I see that Brimstone is the most important and used resource. Needed for make iron and glass, needed for weapons, needed for magic, needed for cristals... In a map that I test I found a lot of iron but only 2 ores of Brimstone. So all the iron ores become useless cause I can't melt it and all weapons was archery.

Comments

  • The game already has a speed x2 function click on the gear in the top right enable debug mode (will disable Achivemnets) then click ond the debug menu and click on speed x2

    The game has minimum and recommended System requirements on the steam page. Note that the graphics card mostly isn't the problem it's more the CPU or the RAM. Changing the Graphic sesttings won't really change the performance. Also the performance of the game in general isn't optimal. When i played 8 hours straight 6GB ram were used.

    Implementing that the Corruptrons actually build themself is unfortunally almost or is impossible. I am not a dev but they used to say it. But having just some decoration might be possible.

    In my opinion only one map doesn't have enough Ressources and thats Zuma. But since you now just can disable that stone is collected in Tunnel and Quarry Task it isn't really an issue anymore. I made a sheet a while back so the newest map isn't on it. It also shows for what mode it is and how many spawns there are.

    I think that I'm not explained really well on the 3st one, sorry :sweat:
    I said base, structures or decorations, but I don't mean that they build that.
    The structures was already here if is a start enemy point.
    What I mean with growing is how strong the enemy are. I mean, if I build so fast and atack 20 min before start I found 3 or 4 little trops, but if I build for 1 hour or two and go to atack I found a strong wave of enemies.

    Its not so hard if the game use the variable of time played to define the number/level on spawning the Corruptrons :sweat_smile:
  • Yea Conquest is currently quite unbalanced and extremly laggy after some time.
    I am sure they could add decorations and let you place them in the world so there is something when you get to them. You already can Have pre-build structures in maps. But that's not what you want :D
    Also they are currently reworking Conquest to make it more balanced and less laggy so i would just wait a bit and play Invasion/Multiplayer conquest or Sandbox in the meanwhile

    That's sounds really cool :smiley:
    Hype for see what's coming!

    #1 Make stockpiles closer, use 2x, use instant building mode or just wait.
    #2 This is how Castle Story is designed and you can't change that. I think that textures, models and shadows are the smallest problem here, pathfinding costs more.
    #3 Corruptrons dont make bases lol, they just spawn.
    #4 Most of the resources are under the ground.

    @Matthew7991
    On what about conquest they are working? If its only about units' stats nothing will change.
  • As far as i know they want that to make that you can't rush at the beginning but have less enemies later on to reduce the lag, also i think they want to rebalance it so that easy is actually easy but not as easy (rush) as it is right now. It sure will stay conquest the goal will be the same. But don't quote me on what i said. I guess we will get more exact info today on stream
  • kuzynnkuzynn Member Backer
    Heh, so nothing will change.
    This game could have many awesome game mods better than conquest and campaigns but they gave up after release. Now they try to fix something that can't be fixed.
  • @kuzynn Have you seen this weeks stream ? It is defently way way ... more stable. And it now actually seems to be better balanced.
    And you know you can make suggestions or try to mod the mode yourself.
    And i think it's better that they released it since most just keep it in early access to have an excuse to have bugs.

    Man, who plays singleplayer here. It's too boring. And I know that I can make suggestions because I play this game since 2012.

    But castle story sold badly and now they do not update this game. Seriously, six months for changing some textures for desert biome? And they told that we will get full snow biome too, and what? Anyway, these biomes are unnecessary.
  • I only play Singleplayer and i have a lot of fun with it.
    You know you can make suggestions but yet you are here basicly just crying instead of making a propper post by yourself and giving propper feedback. Also his suggestion was about Singleplayer. If you are taling about PVP Conquest that's something different.

    I wouldn't say it sold badly i mean over 200k. They are a indie studio and it is their first game what do you expect of course they don't sell millions like AAA puplisher.
    And well it's not the only feature they have been working on and they already have been working on Mirador at that time.

    Players like me are tired of making suggestions because sauropods don't care.

    Hey Kuzynn, I'm sorry you feel like we don't care, despite me discussing this with you extensively over Discord, I'm not going to get into it all over again here because we're not going to derail @Marcopole who took the time to post his thoughts here.

    Feel free to send me a PM if you'd further like to discuss this.

    How we can discuss over discord while I'm banned for few weeks xD Maybe you think about someone else.

    Hi Kuzynn,

    Your ban was only a two days ban, it's been lifted since. We give warning bans before permanent ones for minor offenses.
