this game has a lot of potential, but im worried that it was released too soon, and all the bugs are going to doom its long-term popularity.

also: still cant log in

Downloading the 1.0.7 update now. Not gunna lie, it hit the head on so many nuances I had with the game, it's unreal.

- Going to the Queued tab when clicking on skills. CHECK!
- Not having to zoom out and back in when moving ships around a system to view details of said planet. CHECK!
- Auto-joining General chat. CHECK!

Random Question: If I stop a skill that's partially finished learning, does it reset the timer, or can I continue learning the skill at a later date? I ask because it's not easy to move queued skills up and down the list.

Your research progress will be saved.

wtf, 2 people can colonize planets in the same solar system?

this whole time i thought you claimed entire systems, since entire systems change color when you get one outpost in them...

now im getting crowded out by some dude whose managed to outpost the entire damn sector already.

this game is a hot mess.

jesus, now theres some bug where every time i tap on the screen a box appears asking if i want to post a screenshot to twitter.

plus i apparently cant redirect a colony ship after telling it to move somewhere. i keep being told that its "returning to my control", but its been an hour now, and the ship has continued to move several quadrants.
