    One of the huts is almost done being built, but all the constructors are dead and they aren't getting replaced by other nuggets.

    Thanks for the swift reply. I thought it's still open since this thread isn't closed. Looking forward to the steam release. I see many many things got added since the last Alpha build, I'm somewhat scared since so many new things were added in such a short time.

    Anyone can, but we prioritize people who have already expressed support for the game by purchasing it. Even so, we are no longer accepting applications for testing I'm sorry to say.

    It was an answer to a previous question, and not a rant out of the blue. Its fine to not think it matters, its more about being on point on what they say, if you let the little things slide, then it becomes big things, be honest about it even if it sucks. Sweeping things under the rug is shady, dosent matter what part of the business it is. Well, from that last stream we all know they dont give a shit about the GDPR, thats for sure, lol. And yea, giveaway is a minor thing, I am more interested about the new reveals coming, but thats for another post by another user. I get your point.

    Let’s talk about The Universim

    I remember the thing you're talking about but it was changed to this: crytivo store sweepstake. The winner was already announced in a twitch stream. And you did not have to buy anything. Only to register a critivo store account which you already have somehow when you're registered here. So no false advertising and promotion to sell more copies of the Universim. @Sasha @Alex Koshelkov @Magecoerlin @Bolerro correct me when I'm wrong...

    Question for Steam Release

    They have said no more then 30$ (on steam forum I think) Probably looking at 25$ (its not worth more) and the EA price should be less. Max 15$

    Just wanted to let everyone know that the first round of testers have been contacted, so if you haven't already heard from us, you aren't in the first round. Buuuut, I'm planning to get more of you involved as I can manage it, so that we keep getting fresh eyes on the game all throughout August. So keep your eyes peeled for emails from me

    Research Prototype Panel

    It definitely does and as we progress it will have more and more stuff. I believe that people will love to play the game even without the story, but story will be a blockbuster. It is already 60-70% written and it should be amazing I see your point clearly as well. There is no write or wrong answer. I think you have a valid point as well.

    Let’s talk about The Universim

    Will there be an end-game goal to work towards or are we going to expand through the galaxy indefinitely? What will the goal be if there is one and if you can disclose it? Also another interesting thing I've wondered, will we be able to terraform planets? Edit: And I just realized I asked this in the wrong place reeeeee

    Please.... did you "delete" the house health system and buldings need to be repaired only because they get old? Say yes or i'll stop breathing until you remove it Scrap that... I'll rename Nuggets after you @Magecoerlin @Sasha and @Alex Koshelkov and play with you. Muahaha.... Uhh something else... No Quests at all? Not even prayers? A bit disappointing. At least prayers would be a good Idea in my opinion. If you have enough time... For the future... Maybe a third option... The Universim (normal mode aka story mode if possible with options to choose: easy (the most expensive screensaver ever) (yes @Alex Koshelkov some people like it relaxed ) medium (i don't want to watch screensavers only) hard (i played dark souls and it was too easy for me) and "I want a real challenge" The unleashed Universim (aka creator mode and sandbox light... more options to choose but with included story) Creator Mode (a real pure sandbox with many options you can enable or disable to change the gameplay) The rest looks promising.

    Nugget Leaders and Law System Hello Creators! Much like any civilization, Nuggets need leaders. These are the best of the best -- or, at least, that’s what their campaign posters say. The most fundamental pursuit of any Nugget is survival, which does not always come easily. As a result, Nuggets typically choose leaders whose agendas will most likely keep everyone alive. Leaders in The Universim will come up with important laws and agendas that can alter your civilization’s evolutionary path and social structure. Election Process Every 2 in-game years, your civilization will vote for the next Leader. There are usually three candidates, and each will bring their own list of laws/changes in the event they are elected. This process will occur with or without your intervention. You can allow Nuggets to choose their own Leaders, or you can weigh in on which you think is best.Every adult Nugget in your civilization will cast a vote towards the candidate they prefer. Their selection is based on their internal preferences and traits. For example, lazy Nuggets will vote for leaders who promise fewer work hours, while Nuggets who like to eat will vote for candidates who promise more food production. User interface In the UI, each candidate will have a list of laws or changes they plan to implement below their names. Every candidate will have their owncolour to distinguish them from their competitors. A voting bar will showcase the voting progress of each candidate, which will indicate who is currently in the lead. In rare cases, candidates might change their proposed laws/changes to something completely different. Intervention Process As a god, you can influence this complex process in a number of ways: Accidents happen: Nuggets are fragile creatures who do not react well to having a boulder dropped on them. Actually, there are many potential accidents that could befall a candidate. Nuggets know all too well that nature is a cruel mistress. Sometimes, Nuggets just happen to spontaneously combust, get struck by lightning, or end up floating through space. It’s a mysterious world they live in. Blessings: Murder isn’t always the answer. There is a far less brutal way of influencing the election process, which involves blessing your preferred candidate. Some downsides do exist, though. Firstly, it will cost you Creator Points. Secondly, it might not work. It can happen that the candidate who is most qualified for the job loses to a chimpanzee, even with your blessing. However, at least blessing Nuggets won’t permanently scar the mental state of those who witness your “accidents”. Leader After the election, the new Leader will continue to enact laws over time. Players will be notified in advance when a Leader plans to enact a new law. (DB* Value on min - max laws per Leader Nugget)If a Leader dies before their term ends, the community will take a bit of time before electing a new Leader. (DB* Value from min to max time when next election will start)Leader Nuggets cannot be assigned to any other job. (DB* Min-Max age Nuggets can become a candidate for Leader) Examples of Laws Elderly Assisted Living (Elders mate and eat 2x more and no longer work. 30% chance of elderly couple dying during mating. +2 to Happiness. ) Same-Sex Marriage (+5 to Happiness. Slight decrease in reproduction rate.) Matriarchy (Only Female Leaders) (All female Nuggets get +5 Might. Females live for +5 years longer on average. Probability of males being born -15%) Patriarchy (Only Male Leaders) (All male Nuggets get +5 Might. Males live for +5 years longer on average. Probability of females being born -15%) Child Labor (Nuggets work from when they are children. Causes reduced lifespans (-10 years) and lowered Happiness (-10 Happiness)) Labor Laws - Nuggets only start work after they turn 10. Lifespans +10 years. Happiness +5. Work Shifts - Nuggets take shifts working. Increases efficiency of buildings (by reducing time that Nuggets are gone to rest/eat) and increases Happiness (+5). Food for all - Increase the amount of rations per Nugget by double. (Happiness +10. Food consumption +100%.) Prohibition - Nuggets no longer drink from Eateries. (Happiness -5. Nugget Stamina +5.) Contraception Ban - Nugget reproduction rate increases. (Reproduction rate +15%, Happiness -5) Adult Classes - (50% of adults will go to School) Accelerated Studies (Nuggets spend less time in School, but injury rates increase) (-20% School time, injury rate +15%) Vaccinations - Nuggets will get shots to become less prone to disease. (-15% chance of sickness) Safety Guidelines - Nuggets will become less prone to injury. (-15% chance of injury) Pollution Control - Reduces pollution by 30%, but players can no longer build factories that pollute. Medical Aid (Increases healing speed by 15%) Vacation Time (Nuggets will take X amount of time each year for vacation. Happiness +10.) Right to arms (Allows Nuggets to own personal weapons. Injury rate +20%, Happiness +5, Wild Animal Attack chance -50%) Industrialist - Nuggets completely shift away from environmental protection and instead increase production. (Factories +15% efficiency, pollution rate increases by 50%) Nuclear Testing (In rare cases, Nuclear Facilities can experience a meltdown. However, rocket building +30%) Water Filtration (+25% to water refill rates, water buildings decay 5% faster) Pesticides (Farm yields +15%. Sickness rates +5%.) Fertilization (Farm yields +15%. Happiness -5 due to smell.) Scientific Focus (Research rate +15%, Creator Point production -15%) Religious Focus (Creator Point production + 15%, Research rate -15%) Sanitation (Sickness rate -15%, water usage +15%) Please note that this feature is a work in progress and will only become available after the Steam release.

    See I do and I don't get the point of your statment at the same time. You can of course be a almighty god that uses commandments and a temple (may a spiritual leader god chooses... or is "chosen" by the nuggets and god supports the spiritual leader in the "politics way" that distributes the commandments to the nuggets. A prophet... This could be as interesting or more interesting than a simple politics system... Do the nuggets agree with the commandments? How do the commandments change the nuggets belief? Will they go to an exile village or will they believe even more... Simple politics are boring in my opinion but granted for those who like them so they can leave it up to the nuggets and do their thing and form a government wich you can influence the same way described above... But you have the option... The point I totally agree is the lack of options. I don't want to take the prefered playstyle from people. But I don't want to be forced to use a specified secular gamestyle in a self called god game...

    Hello Draclonis, Depending on what operating system you are using we would have different resolutions. Please contact the support team using our email support@crytivo.com

    Don't give up so early. Have a bit faith and give them time. They do their best. Wait a bit more. Have faith. People leaving the ship do not help. People supporting them and openly say what's wrong and what's good help to improve the game direction. And Peter Molyneux ran away with the money and left Godus still in ea... to this point. The Universim team cares... They only need time and feedback.

    Let’s talk about The Universim

    I've filled the survey. One thing I would like less in the game is the God Powers, or at least, make them optional and not neccesary for the management of the civilization. Also, @Alex Koshelkov, I would change the GodEmail by a church. The menu would be the same, just the building would be a church.

    Let’s talk about The Universim

    11,617 backers on kickstarter alone. And 1186 bothered to answer an survey? And you base your development on this? Shame on you. 11.617 backers believed in your initial idea. And you are pretty much telling them thanks for the money, now f**k off. You are correct. You are destroying the initial concept. I have no idea when you might have joined the development. But knowing the history might help. The initial pitch was for you to be a "passive" god. Where you placed epicenters and your "nuggets" developed around them depending on mood, religion, technology and etc. If you watch the video i posted you would be more enriched i guess. Now we have to place pretty much every building and its enfuriating thinking of what i pumped 210$ into. You guys sold me a Fiat on a BMW promise. 22 cans said this as well. At multiple times. Right now Godus is a cowclicker mobile game. And the community is filing law suits against the company. Right, this is as much fun to hear as delivering your car to get its tires changed and return 4 weeks later to hear the engine is still out of the car. Please see your own roadmap screenshot on either facebook or in this post. Than you Alex. I will do just that. I expect i will be met with a cold shoulder and not get a refund with some standard copy/paste email in return. Hello. I backed the game with 210$ back in 2014 where you promised me a god game with little to none micromanagement where you had to do choices and research to develop your planets inhabitants and punish them if you did not agree with the direction they were taking. The game you have delivered so far is getting more and more away from the original pitch where you sold your product on through kickstarter. Instead of putting down just epicenters you now need to place down every building, wich is micromanagement. You need to place workers here and there, wich is micromanagement. And you also need to keep birthrates up. Wich is micromanagement. I have been prospected something else than i bought. And i would wish to request a refund of my 210$ initially invested. Thank you for your time.

    This game is so far from its original pitch now it might as well be another Godus by 22cans. Wich was a disaster. I was a moron when i backed this with 210$ and i wish i could have a refund. The original pitch back in 14' sounded amazing. no micromanagement. Make choices, see what your worshippers would do and punish them if you werent satisfied sounded awesome. I loved the idea. Finally something new. But it seems like the developers are moving into the general genre and are wanting to milk as much players as possible. Wich makes me quite sad. They are moving away from the pitch they originally sold on to change the game even further. There is too much micromanagement even to this date.

    My issue with Crytivo is resolved. Thanks for the great customer support and the possibility to actually communicate. A released game. Wich we were promised in late 16' when we backed the game. I liked the trailer and kickstarter pitch i backed. The game now is more micro than you promised. Stick to the original pitch. Well, no. But there are fall pits from other similar games you should avoid. Like spore was brilliant the first two stages. By the time you got to the last stage the game was rubbish. Your civ needs to be able to fend for itself for you to go explore and expand. Make it an research even. The current level of micromanagement is insane compared to what i was promised when i opened my wallet for this game. The initial pitch was that you were to make choices for your "inhabitants". Now you need to build their buildings and manage where they work. This is not the game i backed. So, you want to dumb it down for consoles. Good for you. This is easily done by staying true to your pitch from the kickstarter. Bugs are natural to a developing game. Most annoying issue with the game is that its not done as promised. Actually, i want a refund. That would be a great reward for me. This game does not resemble the pitch i backed. And i feel i bought a BMW but got an Fiat. You are moving further and further from the pitch you sold the game on and shame on you for this. Im sure this post will be deleted. But i will keep posting it until i get my refund. And i will become an active poster. Also, im burning the poster, the t-shirt and the memory stick. What happend to you, Crytivo? This is why i backed you 210$. This is not the same game. I wouldnt be surprised if this game went the same path as Godus and ended up as a mobile game.

    What about implementing a "Forester" hut that plant trees.

    I've said this in the discord but I wanted to say it here as well: I agree that, while I found them funny, references to real world politics needs to be nixed from the game. I love the idea of these special nuggets but they should be celebrating the scientists, engineers, artists and musicians, as Civilization did but, of course, with a nugget-themed spin.

    I more and more think that the choices of technologies we make define what a kind of god we are. Either one using the alternatives and poducing/developing in a sustainable way or one exploiting the motherplanet and the nuggets without any mercy. The believe system shouldn't purely be dependant on the god powers or the god quests IMO, because so it would be possible to act "good" by using "good" god powers , but still we could use "bad" tech, so research is related to believe and the way the nuggets consider god's choices, isn't it?! Also we can't just be "a" god, there has to be a way to personalize ourselves: When using destructive technologies and god powers more often, then (a) the nuggets should/ could be more afraid of the "cursor" (b) the god powers that we may unlock should be even more destructive (c) even the god quests should go more into the destructive direction When using clean technologies and god powers more often, then (a) the nuggets should/could be more impressed of the "cursor" (b) the god powers that we may unlock should be even more clean (c) even the god quests should go more into the clean direction

    It's released in.. 11 days.. I dont think there will be enough time for another round? After that, anyone who gets an EA Steam game is sort of an alpha/beta tester Dont get me wrong, I'd GLADLY test it even a few days before release LOL

    This actually had around 100 peoples apply for testing. The current testing group is almost entirely made of community members who regularly tested for us during the monthly releases. We'll be adding more people pretty soon however, because we want to keep having new people see the changes.
