Thread for minor complaints or critiques~

Postby Poxy » 15 Apr 2016, 21:40

So I figure people will want to nag about little issues that aren't too detrimental, but still irritate them.

Instead of making a separate thread for every little thing that bothers people, perhaps we can contain it to just one thread.

And I'll go first: I'd like to be able to change my pilot's name.

I strongly dislike Steam, and the nickname on my Steam account isn't quite what I want. I want to bring glory to a name that I care about, not just whatever I named my Steam account.

So is there a way to change the nickname in SolC that's displayed, while still using the same Steam account?

We actually do allow you to change your name! In fact, we support two ways of doing it. One is through Steam:
- Bring up your Friends list (either through the overlay or by right-clicking the system tray icon)
- Next to your name at the top of the new dialog that opens there is a dropdown, click there and you'll see "Change Profile Name" at the bottom.
-- Note this isn't a permanent change to your steam account and should be reflected in your pilot's name the next time you enter a match.

If you are playing without steam (directIP joins), there is an ingame setting under Options>Game to change your name as well.

Yeah, I already found it! Thanks guys, er, or thanks Steam.

Hehe, either way, my problem is fixed, so all is well.

Just had a few rounds of Sol-C. Had loads of fun!

One small annoyance is that there is no chat visible while in the score screen, both during and after a match.

The only way to chat in this screen is to bring up the console, which is rather annoying.

I'd say, aside from the chat quirk sherman mentioned, the only thing I'd possibly recommend is maybe a second or two of protection on spawn, so you don't immediately get turned to paste by a Cerberus when you drop in after dying.

Just jumped in for a couple matches, it is everything I have been waiting for and am absolutely loving the hell out of it! There are only a couple of things that irk me but they are minor annoyances. First off, maybe make player ships brighter or easier to see, sometimes depending on the map, I have issues seeing a player until they move to a color opposite of them, the second issue I have is chat log isn't a thing. Other than that, absolutely amazing game, feels smooth and fluid to play, and once I get the hang of the ship's turning speed i'll be tearing through it!

Grats to you guys, I will be donating as much money as my fiancee lets me to this game when you go kickstarter!

There is already a 2 second invulnerability on respawn. Any time a player's shield turns yellow when hit, it means they cannot be hurt.

Gatling doesn't autoswitch off for some reason. It has killed me a couple times already :(
