I’m certainly not panicking in the slightest. A game of the ambition CIG is aiming for is certainly not without lots of hurdles. They do need to fix and attend to the issues in front of them vs adding new features and new implementations into the universe. I’m excited to see 3.0 it’s less buggy day by day but even a set of bugs can sap your enthusiasm. I have a station door to launch pad that for some reason don’t really open for me. That makes I tough to get to ship. It’s certainly a beautiful game and long way to go. Allot of others waiting for the game is just not as patient.

Thanks for reading and commenting. I didn't always think it was as important to fix before implementing more but I think we're not at that juncture. Alpha or not the user experience is being evaluated. I get that CR is like "No shit, we know that..." however, it often does feel like they do. Station doors not working and you're pushing out to PTU Wave 1 seems neglectful and unnecessary. You want us there to stress test and catch the things you don't? The basics should be working.

I'm not panicked either but I do hope they get much better at setting expectations and communication in general. Many tears and complaints would disappear if they did.

Yeah, I’m very much expect them to know the majority of what’s working or not and be like “Yeah we know that” as well set expectations. Around the web and in reading other comments, many new people seemingly seeing the videos of game for first time, just thinking this is the finished game already and failing to realize this is very much Alpha in a very open development game.

I’d be a bit more excited though if the door for me to Launch Pad 00-04 would work. At least so I can go practice crashing my shop on launch pad to properly figure out flight mechanics. Thus just getting to landing on Planet at Daymar would be a huge accomplishment.

The first few days of playing only 1 door on the whole station opened. That really irked me at first. Like why put this to PTU with the doors not working!! If that continues to happen to you check pad 9. It seems to consistently open when others won't. *sigh* From there just use EVA to get to the right location of your ship.
