Vad utvecklarna har att säga:

Varför Early Access?

“We were at a point in Starbound's development where it was already pretty fun, so we decided to release the game in beta through early access to ensure the community has a chance to help us shape the game.”

Ungefär hur länge kommer det här spelet att vara i Early Access?

“It's difficult for us to give a solid release date-- we're not so good at those, we've learned. Starbound still has a ways to go, but we'll keep you posted via our website!”

Hur är det tänkt att den fulla versionen ska skilja sig från versionen med Early Access?

“The full version of Starbound will contain a plot and sidequests, more dungeons, more bosses and lore, among other features.”

Hur är det nuvarande läget i versionen med Early Access?

“Starbound is already extremely playable and contains a vast amount of content in its current state! There are two beta branches currently in use-- [STABLE] and [NIGHTLY].

The stable branch receives less frequent updates, as we're currently working on one big update that will complete the first few tiers of player progression.

The [NIGHTLY] branch is updated automatically every night, and is for players who want to track progress or simply can't wait to check out shiny new features. :D Play at your own risk, though, as these builds are not tested and bugs/crashes are likely.

Find out more about how to opt into the nightly builds here: http://playstarbound.com/support/#unstable

Kommer spelet att prissättas annorlunda under och efter Early Access?

“The price will likely change after Early Access!”

Hur planerar ni att involvera gemenskapen i er utvecklingsprocess?

“We post daily progress updates on our blog, and we're always hanging around IRC.”

Winter update [UNSTABLE] Edition! ~*The More You Know*~

Hey there!

We pushed the changes mentioned in our recent trailer to the unstable branch last night– rejoice! Anyone who’s been playing the nightly builds won’t see a huge difference, but anyone who makes the switch from stable to unstable will see some pretty massive changes.

So here’s what you need to know about the unstable update, starting with…

How to Switch to the Unstable Branch

There’s a handy tutorial right here about how to switch to the unstable or nightly branch of the beta. Be sure to follow the instructions to switch to unstable. :)

World/Character File Compatibility

If you choose to switch to the unstable branch, please know that your characters and worlds will not yet be compatible with the latest version of the game. Your old characters and worlds will still be there, but the unstable branch will use a different storage location than the stable branch for the time being, while we work out how to upgrade old characters.

We will try to maintain save file compatibility within unstable as much as possible, but it will depend on what sort of changes we have to make during unstable, so we cant make any promises.

If you are currently running nightly, then you probably already know how everything works already. FYI The unstable branch will use a ‘storage_unstable’ directory while we work on compatibility with stable.

Known Issues:
  • Many progression quests aren’t final, some are placeholders for future missions
  • Combat balance is still WIP
  • Performance issues, particularly in dense areas like dungeons and the outpost
  • Background parallaxes have problematic transitions between world layers, e.g. oceans
  • Pixel costs and rewards not yet balanced
  • Interface windows (containers, AI, etc) can remain open after switching worlds or moving away from the triggering object
  • Cooking recipes for tier 5 and 6 crops need to be implemented
  • Crops sometimes get out of sync when grown on ship
  • Enemy hit/death sounds sometimes fail to play
  • Some errors in enemy movement and pathfinding
  • Rare crash when removing items from containers, appears as “(InventoryException) Not allowed to discard stack when locked.”
  • The launcher, on some people’s machines, will spew dll errors about missing ordinals. This is not fatal however, and the launcher will still work after you close them.
  • And a whole lot more (probably)

    We’ll keep everyone posted as we make more updates and plans evolve, but thank you all for being so patient! Have fun!

    ---

    Tiy also did an AMA on the Starbound subreddit last night answering lots of questions about development and the unstable update, so be sure to check that out. :)

    Hope you all have a nice weekend and a lovely holiday. <3 :)

[DAILY BLOG] Weekly Update Round-Up 19/12/2014

#Discussions_QuoteBlock_Author
Evening folks!

When Starbound’s overall balance structure was first established, humanoid NPCs weren’t really a primary consideration at the time, nor was PVP, so the game was largely balanced based around the damage between players and the monsters. While this system was fine at first, it has been the root cause of much difficulty in balancing humanoid NPCs who were primarily balanced to fight against the player and got absolutely trashed by monsters, which was a problem, especially with our growing focus on missions. This necessitated a rethink of how everything was balanced.

To that end, Tiyuri and I, have gone over almost everything with a fine-tooth comb. Here’s a brief overview of the biggest changes.

- NPCs now use armor, so damage inflicted on them is reflective of their armor. Additionally their health now scales on a curve similar to the player’s.
- Damage values across the board have risen. Monsters now die more easily, but they can also kill the player faster too. Fight carefully!
- The energy scaling curve on guns has been completely reworked for a more gradual and consistent climb.
- Tiered armors have been completely rebalanced to suit the new armor and energy scaling levels.
- Players now start off with access to two weapons from the offset, with most races gaining a one-handed shortsword in addition to their broadsword. The novakids gain a two-handed rifle.
- Generated weapon values now typically sit somewhere between the tiered weapons. Rare weapons may still potentially be more damaging, but this should help to keep tiered weapons useful all throughout the game’s progression.

It might not seem like much but these changes have involved a frankly exhausting amount of configuration, but it has transformed the game feel quite significantly. A pleasant side effect of this humanoid-centric rebalancing is that the game is largely balanced for PVP too, provided all parties have suitably leveled equipment.

Guns are more dependable weapons overall, but melee inflicts monstrous damage for those willing to take the risk. In our testing, we found ourselves having heated 1-on-1 exchanges, rapidly alternating between ranged sniping and clashing swords when our energy reserves were locked away. It was both frantic and fun! I’m looking forward to seeing what you guys make of it.

Evening, everyone!

In my recent post, I mentioned that we’d soon be uploading a trailer highlighting some of the biggest changes we’ve made to Starbound since the last stable build. Without further rambling, here it is!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Sz2zr3pZEo

As Tiy noted yesterday on Twitter, we’re trying to push these updates to the unstable branch next week and, depending on how that goes, pushing them to the stable branch in January.

Katzeus at Starbound has done an awesome job summarizing most of the changes here.

Thanks again for your continued support and patience. :) Enjoy the trailer!

“Starbound is one of the most impressive never-ending games I've ever played.”
9 – Polygon

“Starbound's delivering on its core promises even in its early access incarnation.”
Eurogamer

“This might be a bare-bones version of the game to come, but boy, check out those bones. The game's minutiae will be mapped out across various wikis for years to come, and many mechanics will be added and refined, but even now, Starbound is an enticing journey of discovery that reminds you just how exciting it can be to stare at a sky full of stars.”
Gamespot

Starbound lets you live out your own story of space exploration, discovery and adventure. Settle down and farm the land, hop from planet to planet claiming resources, or make regular visits to populated settlements, taking on jobs and earning a living. NPCs are scattered about the worlds, offering quests and challenges for those looking for a little extra excitement in their lives.


Key Features:
  • 7 playable races

Early Access-recension
So many people are giving this awesome game a negative review simply because the "Dev's havent done anything"
...
Alright, watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Sz2zr3pZEo
and explain to me that the "Dev's havent done anything"

Edit: Ignore all those other negative reviews that say "The devs never update the game" ... the devs released word that, instead of releasing multiple small updates in the actual game, they'd do so in a beta version so folks could keep up with events. There's many players writing reviews that're completely ignorant of this fact.

Edit(2): People have mentioned that the "major problems" arent getting fixed... This update shown in the video, plus the claims that Chucklefish has made point to the fact that they will HOPEFULLY be fixed.

Comments section has some neat points, go read it. Sorry to all the folks who didn't find my review helpful. I tried.

Early Access-recension
I purchased Starbound back in December 2013, knowing it was Early-access and a so-called “beta“. However, looking at the product, the name “beta” does not fit its state. Even the head developer confirmed that this is only a tech-demo. I could live with that back then, because “thick and fast” updates were announced. In fact, there were several meaningful updates in December, but then only a few in January and February, and after some cosmetic patches in spring, stable or unstable patches weren’t released anymore. It’s 5th of December, one year and one day after the release of the pre-Alpha; Starbound had four updates in 2013, all of them between January and April.

It’s kind of frustrating that even if you are aware of the fact that you are in a beta, this beta isn’t a beta at all. I’ve never seen a developer in the suggestion forum. The multiplayer-scene suffers under the bad performance of Starbound; servers with more than five players tend to be unplayable. The lack of updates destroyed MP and its community. Even some of the big modders - like the inventor of the beloved “Avali”-race mod - left because they were annoyed by CFs policy. There was also a time when only one thread existed for ALL bugs to report! I count this behavior as highly incompetent and unprofessional. Even an “indie” has to keep some quality standards.

Now to the so called “Nightly Builds”. Don’t get brainwashed by the fan boys on the CF forums who claim that CF produces updates, saying “you only have to download the Nightlies”. Not only are the NBs broken (developer admitted that), they are mere developer builds to show the players at least that some kind of development is happening; the NBs were introduced because there were rumors that CF didn’t work on the game at all. Also, even if they have a support forum for it, they officially don’t want that bugs in the NBs get reported. To make the thing even more contradictory, those who claim that these NBs are a “beta” have never tested any beta at all; sometimes, you can’t even advance in the NBs without admin commands, and your saves/characters can be corrupted if you are unlucky.

But even if you follow the NBs, you will see that they have cancelled or added features of the old stable, changing some aspects of the game in a different direction. That underlines the fact that the current “stable” isn’t a beta, because normally, a beta has most of its features integrated. Starbound instead seems to be rebuild from the scratch. Why? I don’t know the answer. However, the developers don’t hear what the community says or at least stick to their own plans – you can investigate several thesis papers by Tiy from December and January – but obviously don’t have any priorities when developing.

So, even if you take in account that this is an alpha and early access, all things they promise to you won’t happen; don’t think that you can give them help as a modder, as a bugtester or as an artist. I didn’t encounter any developer since spring on the forums, except if they posted a dev diary. CF always cries how bad and demanding the community is, but they are not interested in the community either; if you want to get some news, you don’t have to visit the forums, but look at reddit or twitter. At the beginning, they said that they wanted to introduce popular mods in their updates; but in one year, they only introduced two. It would’ve been a good idea to add at least some mods in the long phase without an update, but even here CF fails.

To make things worse, there were some really bad comments and even accusations made by the developers in open public. I’ve never seen something like that where developers accuse their customers, when they criticize the development; critics can be idiots sometimes, but there IS the problem of absent updates, and as such, the developers are responsible for their own failure, not others.

Starbound started as a promising game with a bunch of potential. Unfortunately, CF destroyed it. They claim that an “unstable” (!) patch will come in the next weeks. Not sure when they will push the stable. They are also talking about a mysterious 1.0 version that will come later. I don’t think we’ll see it before December 2015.

If you are a person full of passion who wants to give a hand, wants to be part of something big and likes to enrich a community – don’t try Starbound. Don’t do it. If you are a multiplayer-person, don’t even think about it. And if you are a lonesome, but experienced gamer who wants a cool, complex game… you should wait until 2016 until thinking about a possible purchase of Starbound 1.0.

I have to say that I really want to love this game. I really would like to see Starbound succeeding. However, Chucklefish makes it impossible for me. I'm not the only one. There were times when this game was played by 80.000 people a week, or at least 20.000 to 30.000. Now, there are only 1.000-2.000. Still, everyone is convinced that the whole fan base will return after a new stable update. I doubt that.

(A short addition: I don’t start Starbound via Steam, that’s the motive why I have fewer hours shown than I actually played. The launcher is bugged, by the way, and can double the hours you played, leading to false statistics.)

When I first played this game, it blew my mind. The soundtrack was excellent, there seemed to be so many things to do. But then you hit the "endgame." There becomes nothing. An endless grind for no reason. And then the updates stopped. For a year. They said they were going to update it weekly. Of course, they could always start work on it again, but after such an immense dissapointment, I don't think I'll ever be nearly as excited about this game as I once was.

As of the time of this posting, 12/13/14, I cannot recommend this game.
So, here's the thing: This is an incredibly promising game. I had a lot of fun while playing it. But things eventually got pretty stale. There are lots of planets and places to explore, but you aren't really given a reason to explore them. They hardly differ and the loot you get from exploring these places isn't really that great. Of-course, at the time, I could forgive this because it was early access. But it's been something around 8 months or so since I've played and there has not been one major update since then. There has been little to no improvement, and seeing how long it's been in development, I can't help but wonder what the devs are doing. 8 months with no updates on an early access game is absurd. It's truly dissapointing how this game turned out, because it really could've been something special.

Gameplay 7/10 Refinements are coming slowly and improving the gameplay
A.I. 4/10 Randomized enemies seem to all act similar and not very smart
Building 7/10 Easy to use building system to create detailed, mostly decorative structures
Story 5/10 Game lore does not make a good translation into the game itself
Graphics 8/10 Starbound has some very talented artists on board Cute pixelart style
Sound 6/10 Nothing special here, pretty standard fare. Playing custom songs is cute
Music 7/10 Needs more tracks, variety and smoother transitions between songs
Replay Value 3/10 You'll have to make your own fun with this one if not on a server at endgame

Overall Impression 48/80 Still can't recommend for purchase since currently it's in Early Access and Chucklefish Devs are not currently participating with players here on Steam forums.

This wants to be a great game... when it grows up. The "Winter Update" added alot of the features that were already available on the nightly versions to a somewhat playable version, however there isn't a stable version update planned for release until sometime in January 2015.

This game has a great concept and the backbone of what could be a great game is in place, BUT this game can be considered a "not worth it" at this point and you should spare yourself the grief of waiting for the glacial speed of development if you actually want to own the game to play the game.

Just buy it later so you don't get stuck wanting for more. If you buy it later. You will simply miss out on an incomplete game now. Check back after a stable update for and see what people are saying about it again. Proof will be in the pudding.

Very, very disappointed with the decisions of the dev team to not engage the steam community in our forums and address their concerns after being more than willing to take thier money. This game has been handled badly in regards to PR in the early access program here at Steam and with early statements of how development was going to happen differing GREATLY from what has actually happened.

Why ban people commenting about things they don't like about the game when we're supposed to be giving feedback on what we think? Seems a bizarre tactic. I'm simply pointing out facts of what has happened in the past during early access program on Steam to prospective buyers who want to participate here. This should not be a model for other developers to follow in my opinion.

- only 3 updates in a year IF you are lucky.

- only fun to play with friends.

- after getting the final armor, its not fun anymore since there is nothing to do anymore.

-It's not "very positive" since the makers of the game don't even look to the game anymore.

the only + is that it is fun playing the first time.

This game had tons of promise when it was first released on Steam way back when. Unfortunately the developers of this game have failed to come through on the promises of all the planned features on the store page. Do not buy this game untill the official release, if that day ever comes. I'm to the point that I do not believe that day will ever come and that is why I'm writing this review almost a year after buying and playing the game. I've been waiting for a playable game for a long time since buying this and the developers are failing miserably. There could be so much to love with this game, but it all seems like a fantasy at this point and nothing more.

This game is probably one of the laziest piles of trash ive ever witnessed. Im sure everyone knows about the devs basically wasting everyones time and money and not updating the game for months on end but I really cant stress it enough. As you can see I have 100+ hours in the game, and while I will admit its a decent time killer and the base building is pretty solid with quite a few options of how you can make it look the gameplay is downright awful and 1 demensional with boss fights you can just build a wall around and beat them to death and enemies that either kill you in one hit and are bullet sponges or they die instantly and do nothing to you. The stat scaling for the most part (at least since release) is alright until you hit the last sector where it then becomes a tedious race around a planet looking for more fuel for your spaceship so you can travel to another planet to find more fuel until you finally grind enough ore to build the max level armor set. Then what do you do? Nothing. You sit on your ♥♥♥ all day in your base maybe building a thing or two while waiting for the next game update that never comes (no nightlies do not count as updates, an update is something that doesnt break your game and delete your saves).

tl;dr If you are expecting better Terraria you will be sad and dissapointed.

Early Access-recension
Starbound has a brilliant core idea, but it is certainly not there yet. My main reservation is how boring the enemy types and planets are - planets of a particular biome have no specific enemy types or dungeons, and different levels just mean the amount of damage/health of enemies differ. There really seems to be no variation throughout the game - once you've visited one planet you've visited most of them, and they have no consistent theme. This game is thoroughly enjoyable to play and explore for a few hours, but if you want to get powerful it just becomes a boring grind.

I also personally dislike the development cycle. Based on the website, it would seem that the devs are constantly making updates. But they seem to be churning out new features faster than they can finish them - there hasn't been a stable update for months, because the devs are too busy making new features to actually finish working on the ones they started 4+ months ago (although I hear an update is finally coming).

Essentially, starbound has little content repeated an infinite amount of times, it really doesn't have much interesting progression and the development cycle is painfully slow and inefficient. In its current state, I really don't believe that this game is worth it. However, should they successfully develop it further (which will probably take several years given their current speed), I think the game certainly has potential. Currently, however, the game is not fun for more than a few hours so I do not recommend it.

As much as I love the concept of the game, in its current state it isnt worth it.. really slow patches (havent seen one new stable version since i first purchased the game earlier this year), planets having all the same lvls leaves next to no reason to explore.. shame really with a bit more love from the devs this could easily be my fav game ever as i love the gameplay and 2d pixel style.

Starbound just... isn't as good as Terraria. it's kind of that simple. and the direction it's going, I'm not sure it ever will be as good as Terraria (let alone BETTER). Starbound is more grindy, the progress is more forced - you can't just run around and explore and do what you want - and you can't expand the one thing you want to expand: your ship.

I kind of feel like: someday, Terraria will add spaceships and galaxies... and then no one will ever think about Starbound ever again.

The game hyped itself way too much, and with several million dollars and a decent sized staff, they still fail to deliver and content updates since last year. Twitter feed from the devs only showed picture of a new office and a puppy. Just a puppy. Glad that money is being put to good use. Still have yet to see any decent content. (Sure they have a big content patch coming out 'soon' but it ONLY took a YEAR) I'm just saying for the manpower and the cash they have, this game gets less updates than anything I've ever played. If you plan on getting the game, I reccomend a pirated version. The last thing these guys deserve is more money from poor unsuspecting people.

The devs abandoned it, the combat is trashy and a pain in the ♥♥♥, bosses are poorly designed, world's have very little places to explore if any with little to no reward, there is little insentive to explore or progress. the only positive points of this game are the moddability (which doesnt fix the terrible gameplay) and the art style of the game. This game had so much potential but it is all wasted on a dev team that wont get their shit together and deliver the product we paid for to support it's completion.

I don't recommend anyone to buy this game. It's been a year and nothing have changed.
We can say now, that developers are going to leave it in it's current state and don't care anymore.
During the beta, when lots of things were supposed to change and there were promises, we all ended up with an RNG unfinished game, that lacks interesting combat mechanics or proper exploration.
Yeah, you can install a ton of mods in this game, but the core mechanics are still here and they're really bad.

On top of it, the way developers spoke to customers is outrageous.
Don't waste your money.

I used to believe in this game, now I have given up hope.

Not a [stable] update since april 26 2014.
The nightly builds they glorify seem to be disabled for steam users.

Forums are filled with fanboys of blindfaith and moderators who will
ban those who criticize the scam this game has become.

Go back to Terraria if you know what's best for ya.

Much like many other reviews, Starbound is a good game, but hasn't seen an update in quite awhile.
