Opinions on the ending? (MAJOR SPOILERS!)
« on: September 16, 2017, 04:24:01 AM »

Who else felt let down by the final cutscene and the declaration that there won't be a resolution in the forseeable future? It feels... cheap, to me. The developers, instead of finishing the story, end the game and say "To Be Continued," and then proclaim that they won't deliver that continuation for an undetermined amount of time?

What are other people's thoughts? And, if any of the developers see this, could we please get some clarification on what is actually going on with this?

This game was never meant to complete the story, the story was too big. It does end the part of the story for the colonists that crashed on Galileo Continent. The rest of the story on Maria will be in PE2 which starts production next year.

That is excellent news. Thank you. After hearing nothing for a while, I was getting worried.

Quick questions about how the continuation will work: will we take control of a new character, or continue as our character from PE1? If the latter, will there be a Mass Effect-esque system to import a save file for the sequel? And, most importantly for me, at least, will we get closure on the fates of our character and the others on the McTalk if we don't directly continue as our PE1 colonist?

It will be from another point of view. We'll see if we can import the old player character into the game.

looking forward to that.  Also, since the story editor has been released, we could possibly come up with alternate scenarios for our original cast and crew ourselves.  I'm not sure if north continent will be available for a map option, but I hope that is a possibility.

Also, I noticed in another post that you said the reason for story map loading more smoothly than adventure is because the map loads directly from the game instead of "on the fly."  Is it possible to use the Maria continent maps for adventure/survival mode so that there is a more seamless map load?  I think most people would be happy with using the Maria map as long as they can fly/glide/travel without interruption on the map loads.  Also, the Maria map has those awesome land bridges that you really don't get in adventure mode.

Also, do you plan to use lithium, titanium and energy tools in PE2 story mode?
Lastly, please keep doing skill tree, and make it an option in story mode... if you want someone to have a skill at a certain point, you can "boost" them to have that skill.  I think it would be great to be able to develop skills, especially the character enhancements, as part of personal training in story mode... maybe unlock skill tree/personal training after a colony is built.

Also, it would be great to be able to act as a trainer yourself to give skills to colonists.  (I.e. be able to level up skills yourself that you can train onto the colonists, if you can't find a decent trainer).  It's just a thought.  It may seem trivial, saving 20 seconds on recycling, but when you are clearing out your inventory, recycling in 6 seconds instead of 26 seconds makes a big difference on patience.
