Spacebase DF-9 1.06 released

  • Mods can now be loaded via ZIP files from the Mods\ subdirectory of the game's install directory. Each ZIP is loaded as a simple virtual file system which can contain directories that mirror the main game scripts and override their behavior. A file called "init.lua" in the top level of each ZIP's directory structure will run when the mod is loaded, allowing you to perform any needed initialization. See the MyDemoObject.zip there for a simple example mod, which adds a new buildable object with its own artwork.
  • Arrow keys now pan view same as WASD keys.
  • "show_hints" flag added to bootconfig.cfg, set it false to disable the Hint system entirely.
  • Fixed: Unsuited citizens in a vacuum don't enter "sucked into space" immediately.
  • Fixed: Turrets don't spawn in derelicts and docking ships as intended.
  • Fixed: Various UI issues when resizing game window.
  • Fixed: Held weapons don't appear correctly on spacesuited characters.
  • Fixed: Research datacubes don't display properly.
  • Fixed: Ships dock onto pending construction.
  • Fixed: Base Seed Pod can start encased in an asteroid.
  • Fixed: Turrets don't display properly when scanning for threats.
  • Fixed: Raiders kill people imprisoned in brigs.
  • Fixed: Ship engines don't sort correctly with nearby walls.

Don't believe the release announcement. Spacebase DF-9 hasn't been really updated in months. The developers messed up the Early Access model with months of no updates and lack of content and this is them saying that they're not going to work on the game anymore.

Features that were originally planned for were scrapped, no real end game or even a mid game and people are still reporting bugs despite them having all this time to "finish it." Avoid this one and for a game that gets Early Access, check out Prison Architect.

Bought the first alpha and expected a reputable studio like Double Fine to actually handle an early access project properly... but they didn't, and are now shipping an incomplete game with like 1-2 hours of gameplay. Disappointed to say the least.

I purchased this game when it was still in Early Access for the full price (was $25 when I bought it). Developers promised a lot of things, new features, customization, and a vast amount of gameplay. Unfortunately, none of these promises were delivered. I bought the game because I enjoyed Double Fine's Brutal Legend. They seemed like a trustworthy developer that could get a fun quirky game done and make it worthwhile.

After months of no updates and no communication I began to lose heart. The minimal amount of playtime (logged 0.6 hours) was due to the lack of a tutorial (which they have since added, and it's sub-par) and (I assume) a bug that prevented my characters from entering the base I built. I started another game, and again they wouldn't enter the base I built and ended up suffocating. Started another game and I finally got them to enter the base, and that's where more bugs appeared. Just read the forums to get an idea of how frustrating the bugs are and how broken the game is, despite it getting a full release.

Very disappointed in Double Fine. Their lack of communication regarding the game's development, refusal to be honest with people who bought their product (e.g. not letting us know they planned to stop development and leave the game as is), and the fact that they had the gall to release the code and tell the community that if they like the game, then they have to fix it. Come on.

To conclude, I'd say avoid this game, it will receive no further updates, and as it stands it's an incomplete mish-mosh of ideas. Even for $12 I'd say skip it. Hopefully they update Gang Beast, which I also purchased before this fiasco, although it hasn't received an update since the day I bought it (2 months ago).

Update: Source code has been released...and there are still parts of the code that are hidden, as one person on the forum mentioned, the Oxygen Recycler. One of the most basic units of the game. It's used to prevent your base from losing oxygen, thus preventing everyone from suffocating.

Update #2: Price has changed to $20.01 (from the sale price of $12), and that's about it. Tried playing the game again and it wouldn't let me complete the tutorial (was not allowed to place a second airlock door where it indicated). Still have yet to build my own base. They supposedly also fixed some bugs on October 30th. This is what one user had to say:

"crlsniper Nov 1 @ 2:30pm

Glad to see your working on fixes, though the bigest fixes need to be AI fixes, Mostly for doctors and security. I lost an entire base just because none of the doctors would go help people who where incapacitated, neither would soldiers go arrest and move raiders who where incapacitated either."

Multiple counts of the same complaint. Furthermore, despite where you establish your base, you will have near constant attacks from pirates/raiders.

Some brave souls have attempted to mod the game (essentially having to rebuild the game from the ground up), check this thread out: http://steamcommunity.com/app/246090/discussions/0/613940477963640858/

It outlines a lot of the bugs and problems with the game, such as faulty oxygen recyclers (e.g. too many people in a room would cause dramatic decreases in oxygen no matter how many recyclers you had, thus everyone in that room eventually would suffocate).

Update #3: Free copies of Hack n Slash were provided to buyers of this game (myself and a few others received a copy), however it strikes me as more of a political ploy than a genuine apology. This is because people who purchased Hack n Slash got a copy of this game. As far as I know, Hack n Slash purchasers weren't spat upon and kicked to the curb by Double Fine, so this move makes no sense to me.

Don't buy this! The game has been discontinued and hundreds of possible additions cancelled.
Instead, they are now relying on users to continue creating content and have gone from Alpha stage to final, after months of minimal updates.

At this stage it's not worth spending 12 euros on it. Wait till a steam sale or something. 40% discount is way too low considering no future content will be officially released.

As good as this game promised to be, Double Fine sadly ruined their chances of making a great game when they chose to fund this game pretty much from their early access sales, which is a perfectly reasonable strategy, if you deliver regular, great content. Sadly this has not occured, and the game sales stagnated. DF have now quickly pushed the game into a half complete, half-featureless husk of what it could have been, and it's still not very fun to play anymore. A lesson for everyone going forwards. Don't buy this.

Wouldn't Recommend this game A.I. is mainly broken and buggy.

The only update that they classified as it being released version of this game 1.0 are a few bug fixes and tutoral a massive 50.4mb probably done in a lunch time by the devs but took over 30 days to release.

I feel let down by double fines this was the first EA game I backed from them I had doubts at the time but felt I could trust them as they were a big company but they just seem to be using Steam for gold digging and are a fly by night EA dev's.

Don't buy this game if I had a choice I would get a refund and back a better game such as prison architect which I do own and can recommend two devs who done a better job than double fines.

The developers handed in the definitive "Cash Grab" title. Spouting a big name like double fine, they then proceeded to line their pockets and cease development as soon as they had their fill.

This is the TEXTBOOK definition of Early Access abuse.

DO NOT SUPPORT THIS TITLE. 0/10

Double Fine have announced that development of Spacebase DF-9 is coming to an end and the development plan listing planned features has been removed. The Steam Early Access page has been updated to state that version 1.0 is due for release. It “will be its final major update”...

This is a black eye for early access games. Double Fine made a lot of promises to get us to buy this game. Then, after they have our money, they scrap the game and rush out this garbage. The game even looks unfinished. Not only should you avoid this game, but I'm inclined to avoid any more Double Fine products due to the fact that they are willing to decieve their customers just to make a quick buck.

Abandoned game. Do not buy this game! Double Fine Productions took advantage of the early access system to scam users. This game went from early alpha state straight to final build 1.0.

It could have been a great game but unfortunately, this game may never be finished.
So, buy it in Promo (-90%) and you will spend some time enjoying an Early Access game, that will remain as such.
Disapointed by Double Fine on this one.

Development halted. At this point, it doesn't have any features you can't find in any other game similar to this. I played it through Early Access, but it never got to a point to where it flourished into it's own game.

I would suggest grabbing something else.

I promised I wouldn't leave a review until it was finished, as leaving negative feedback on an early access game is just unfair. I loved this game, and with every patch it got better and better.

So why don't I recommend it?
It's simple. It's far too unpolished for a finished game.

Missing text, UI errors, dodgy AI prioritisation, (it's good most times, but it puts things like "stomping out fire on the other side of the raiders" over "omg the raiders are shooting at me run away" and you end up with "look a fire behind those raiders that they just set that doesn't affect anyone, let’s get every civilian to run over to the raiders and stomp out a fire while they shoot us all"

My personal favourite is "the oxygen recyclers are breaking? No, don't fix them, lets panic for two hours while the oxygen slowly runs out"

Now you can put most people down to blind panic in situations like those, but out of a crew of 64, 52 of them went to stop out the fire (they ran all the way from a safe section of the base, past security and into the raiders, most of which were assigned to security and tasked with killing the raiders. You just wouldn't get a situation like that in real life.

I understand the reasons behind it, and the bug fixing is ongoing. but in its current state it is still very very difficult play smoothly (and I don't mean that the game is hard, I mean the game visibly holds you back when you want to play it) and a single bug can be a game breaker.

If you like the look of this game, feel free to get it back up your saves MANUALY on a regular basis, and don't be surprised if a sudden bug/glitch wrecks your experience. However please don't buy this game if you are thinking it will be epic. It's epic until a bug kills it.

Once the major bugs are patched I will play it again, but it’s just gotten harder and harder to cope with the bugs as builds went on.

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME.

The Game is incomplete and will not be completed. This game was funded via Early Access and because the Early Access version had maybe 40 minutes of gameplay, no one bothered to buy it and Double Fine decided to cut their loses and go straight from mid-alpha to release when it is still full of bugs, and told modders to finish the game for them. They gave out free copies of another game, Hack N Slash, just to be like "We messed up, Whoops sorry!" This game is a scam even at 90% off.

The game still consists of very little to do. The AI people die from suffocation and other stupid reasons all the time due to poor programming. The start of a new base also leaves very little margin for error.

You can find a rant I did about this whole thing in the video below. Avoid Double Fine games in the future.

This game is horribly incomplete, and Double Fine saw it fit to go straight to 1.0, skipping beta phase completely. It's a buggy mess, and this will likely never be fixed.

This game needs more development time.

The ai is not very smart:

Security beacons do not work right, colonists will fly around for a while instead of securing areas

Builders will accidently kill themselves tearing down rooms

The entire base will suffocate by building oxygen recyclers last, despite this being an important priority.

There are a lot of things wrong with this game. I can go on and on about it Avoid at all costs.

I read the negative reviews and backlash against DoubleFine, but I thought that I would be OK even if the game had some bugs and wasn't quite finished, so I picked it up anyway. That was a mistake.

The game is not just unfinished, its in an Alpha state. Which is sad, because I definetly would enjoy the game if it was done. As it is, the game is entertaining for a couple hours, then quickly grows tiresome and frustrating. The bugs are not crippling, but taken as a whole they represent a game that is very unbalanced and grates on you over time.

If DF-9 ever hits the $5 pile, pick it up. otherwise pass.

WARNING: Incomplete and unfinished. The game don't worth the price asked. Don't buy it before getting informed yourself. (not even at 40% off as it is right now)

This game was released after no communication from devs since they announced the end of development more than 1 month ago.




The game is ok, can be fun and enjoyable for a few to lots of hours, but the game development was cut off early. That mean, it feel like somethings are missing as they didn't have time or money to finish the game. Content is lacking.

Now if you're ok with it: You get to build up a space base with different type of rooms and assign jobs to your crew as: builder, tech (repair and keep up your base running), doctor, security, etc..). Diferent type of rooms: Airlock, Refinery, Garden, Pub, etc. Explore direlicts and rescue people or enconter aliens, killbots or raiders waiting to kill you. Defend your base from raiders who will breach your base hull or enter through the front door, or just dock. Deal with your crew emotions and manage your resources.


They decided to end development and jump straight from 0.6e version to 1.0 in a month. All they did was fix major bugs and add a tutorial to give the impression the game is complete and finished. There are still bugs, but from what I played after it got released, I didn't find major bugs yet.



Mods:

The game is modable, they provided the Lua code to everyone who purchase the game, it's located somewhere in the game folder. That's up to community if they want to work on this, but from reading the forums most don't feel like doing it since the game still being sold and are upset with the devs due to lack of communication and transparency.



Why the game development ended early:


Double Fine decided to use Early Access as the only way to raise funds for the project after the $400,000 they made when released at Steam. That money went back to their investors from Indie Fund and they relied on sales. Big mistake. Horrible money management from DF part, plus the lack of communication and transparency from JP and his team helped to dig down the future of this brilliant idea.

(more info can be found on PC Gamer, RPS and other gaming sites)




TL;DR - A fantastic "potential", tossed out after terrible money management, lack of communication and transparency. Game is fun, but get boring after some time as you will feel things are missing or unfinished.



Recommendation:

Go play Prison Architect or Rimmworld instead, those are a lot of fun and devs update those games and their community very often. Or Theme Hospital, great classic tycoon and have a free mod that makes it HD.
