    Well, I don't know about you guys but this years E3 was one of the best ones. Maybe it was because of the next-gen consoles that were presented or maybe because my favorite game is getting a tune-up (Thief), but this edition of E3 was AMAZING !   What do you guys think and what are your expectations from the next-gen games & consoles.

    Research Prototype Panel

    Hi Guys, Due to numerous requests that we received from you, here we will provide current prototypes & ideas that we considering to implement and working right now for the Research based on your feedback. Please note that some of those prototypes are very ambitious and we would love to implement them, but they require a lot of man power and time, which unfortunately we don't have. So please consider that even though after finalizing the approach which we will take on that, we might still will have to cut some things from it due to time constrains. Also, this is something that we are planning after steam release, not before. Don't hesitate to post your ideas and thoughts about those prototypes. Constructive critics are also welcome. Sincerely, Sasha Prototype #1 Prototype #2 Prototype #3 @Lissa Gloom @threeheaded monkey as promised

    Design, Whats after pre-alpha?

    The Design team consists of two people Susanna and myself and we wanted to share a few things with you now that PA is out that might help with some of the issues on the design side of the house. Everything you do in the game right now was designed for Pre-Alpha, every major system, IE Farming, Skills Tree, etc will re-evaluated and properly updated a section at a time. So if you are seeing something gameplay right now that is not the final game version, it was the Pre-Alpha version, so no worries! It will have a big update as we go along. The idea in PA was to give you something to do and let you roam around in your new world and give you a little look into the future. The PA was designed really for 20 minutes and after that, things are going to start to fall apart as the AI and other systems are simply not balanced past that as none of the actual gameplay, true gameplay, is actually in the game currently. We did not want to spend hours and hours balancing a game for hours of gameplay when we would have to tear it all back out as we put new stuff in. Most things are at a set base number, which obviously doesn’t work well. So whats coming up! That’s the most important question right!! Most people in the game design world have what is called the “Whiteboard” It’s seriously a whiteboard with sticky notes on it that you slide around with your tasks and its used in SCRUMS. These are the tasks and their order currently however, I can say the order moves around very often. These will be your updates as we move along. They will be in chunks. So If we say update 5.3 is coming out, you will actually know what it is. And you can freak out. Because I know we will be! Note: Unlike PA these design systems will be very close to the final version, they will need to be tested and when you have them in your hands we will have spent a large amount of time testing them ahead of time. So when you play them, you should be getting a good product in your hand. Also Note: Many systems of course work with other systems so, you might get to see something over the horizon but that might not be functional yet and we will let you know in our release notes. So what is the list!!! 1. Resources 1.1 Minerals , distribution and mining 1.2 Plants and Farming (UI, functions) 1.3 Forestry 1.4 UI updates from newest systems 2. Research Tree + Upgrades 2.1 Complete skills from Start to Space Age 3. Animals 3.1 Creature Generator 3.2 Animal Loot Table 3.3 Sea Animals and Airborne animal Generation 3.4 Domestication 4. Nugget update 4.1 Stats update 4.2 Mating update 4.3 Job Assignments 4.4 UI updates 5. The Proving Grounds 5.1 Hunting 5.2 Trapping 5.3 Exploration 5.4 Defense 5.5 Upgrades 6. Exploration 6.1 Upgrades in travel IE Vehicles 6.2 Encounters 6.3 Discoveries 7. God Powers 7.1 Powers – UX 7.2 Events and Interventions 8. Space Exploration System basics 8.1 Telescope 8.2 Probes 8.3 Space Communications Center 9 Planet Health 9.1 Resources 9.2 Deduction System So finally, thanks for waiting for the PA and I am excited to send you some patch updates now, If you want to know which systems have the most traction right now. Systems 1.1 5 7 But again we will be focusing on one at a time, when updates come out from the design house. So look forward to talking to you in a bit and enjoy the PA! Peanut

    I ran into the issue yesterday where while I was trying to place my civilization, I thought I found a prime spot on the dark side of my planet. It was difficult to see when it was directly on the back of the planet. When the sun is blocked out, that entire hemisphere is difficult to see (lake/rock/mountain locations). It would be nice if the entire planet had a slight light increase at least during the placement of the civilization, that way if I want to place it on the night side of the planet, I can see where I'm placing it.

    Don't get me wrong, but The Universim in the latest patch has nothing to do with the vision in the kickstarter campaign. Beside all bugs... Gameplay was called "Organic Gameplay" like managing your ant farm... Is the concept of a mighty god still in place or are we just an alien watching the civilization and tell them wich building needs to be build where and how they produce enough food to stay alive. From time to time we can unleash a bit of rain and healing powers through our intergalactic starship... ... that's the way i see it at the moment. Nuggets seem to be aware of a godly presence but still do not pray... Instead they send letters to god but are afraid if a godly power is performed like picking up a tree next to them. I'd call this unlogic gameplay. If nuggets are aware of a godly presence and send god a "mail" and of course if they wait for a godly order where to build important buildings like farms and what to plant on them... It makes no sense at all. The only difference between The Universim and every other RTS bulding game is some pretty useless and extreme costly powers that could be (as i said) technologies from an alien ship in the orbit... The universim seems to take path to RTS building games with micromanagement and resource management instead of a god game. Just to compare... Black & White 1/2 made me feel like a god. The Universim makes me feel like an Alien observing the planet and tell those stupid nuggets what to do to stay alive and take them by the hand every simple and small step. If they are able to build bunkers, why don't they get inside if it is dangerous autonomously. No the alien in his space ship needs to tell them that a sand storm is dangerous... But can the alien help? No. No energy shield, no weather control power... nothing. the alien is only a observer. not godly at all. Who needs a bunker if a god protects you? at least in stone age... stone age bunkers... yes... great idea. Oh and of course... nobody is praying to the alien... Only my 2 cents.

    What do you think about research?

    My idea for a research system for a god game in which the player decides how much godly intervention should be avaiable.: My suggestion is to introduce minimum 3 Shrines which evolve depending on your decisions. You Start with a SHRINE OF WISDOM (or if you want to call it epicenter) This shrine provides the possibility to choose between different options that have direct influence on the society. Those research options can be bought by spending faith. Which could be generated in a prayer enclave or a temple. Like: Major options to choose: -secularity -freedom of will -prayer rules -Sacrifices Basic options to choose: -clothes -reproduction -basic technology By choosing either free will or strict prayer rules you decide if the Shrine of Wisdom changes to a "Heaven Shrine" or a "Secularity Shrine" Heaven Shrine Most technologies are avaiable but main focus is on pleasing a god. You decide by spending faith what to introduce to your Nuggets. Higher technologies have a higher faith cost. Some special technologies like a faith shield insted of a bunker to protect nuggets from natural disasters are avaiable. Or in the space age a "godly spaceship" that reduces risks if you land on a planet. Of course your faith gain is faster and you can decide how much nuggets pray or if you sacrifice one for an instant faith boost. Nuggets do most things autonomous to stay alive if you did not set a rule for a specific behaviour... like "god decides if you breed" Secularity Shrine This shrine is not powered by faith. You have to pay resources and nuggets have to learn to invent things. A school is unlocked if your Shrine of Wisdom transforms to a Secularity Shrine. Some nuggets still pray in this secular society so you as a god will not die, but you're not mighty... Your might does not suffice to perform mighy powers... So your nuggets have to learn to protect themselves with a bunker against nature. You're more like a manager insteat of a god. People are aware that you exist but most of them do not care about you but they agree that you're their mayor. ;-) Technologies reflect those circumstances. Your nuggets may evolve not so fast but will be more advanced in the space age when it comes to self defense. My2cents. What are you thinking about this idea?

    Important Announcement

    Of course you are missing the main thank you. We as Kickstarter backers get a lifetime vip status and always 50% off on any game published by Crytivo... woderful isn't it? more unfinished games to buy that are already avaiable on steam and do not need an extra publisher or have published themselfes via kickstarter (prehistoric kingdom and goblins of elderstone)..." That was sarcasm. http://store.steampowered.com/app/625730/Cefore/ not out yet on steam. http://store.steampowered.com/app/693580/Goblins_of_Elderstone/ buyable on steam but not marked as early access but unfinished and really mixed reviews. http://store.steampowered.com/app/666150/Prehistoric_Kingdom/ not out yet but free demo and unfinished as well Oh and crytivo... Development assistance for others? In my opinion you need development assistance if you can't build a good foundation with a good working ai within 3 years and nearly 8 months development time since funding on kickstarter. Bad decision in my opinion. Not a good choice for community freedom. You should have finished your main project first and have satisfied customers before taking this step.

    The easy way to find nuggets is to select the buildings tab go to residential and select house by house until you find the nugget half way across the world, then use telekinesis to move them back to the residential house they live at and your able to complete the quest.

    What's the current take on keeping the wood production chain sustained? I get that, initially, cutting down forests will have the benefit of opening up building spots. But mid game latest, a solution for the dwindeling number of trees will be needed. Maybe a god power, "seedlings" or such. Or tree farms? New funeral options where the dead are buried under a tree sapling? Each birth of a nugget is commemorated by planting one or several trees?

    I think it's just you. ...I like the idea of being able to see inside their homes and workplaces, but I'd much rather that come after the game is released. I don't think it really adds anything to the game other than allowing us to be creepers, and I'd probably look once, say "you lazy bugger, get back to work!", then continue on my way and forget about it.

    Research Prototype Panel

    Hey Guys, thank you for all the feedback. It is being appreciated. So currently we decided to go with the 3rd prototype with some modifications. Please let us know what do you think.

    Research Prototype Panel

    I really love the 3rd and the 2nd type of research screens i think you should opt for creating a mixture between both of them : the graphical design of the 2nd one and the Ui cleaness and precision of the 3rd one. Let me just explain a bit what i mean : * the 3rd one gives you more control over the eras, over what conditions are required to move into the next era, for instance moving from the stone age to the iron age is researching the iron melting research and so on * the 2nd one is more precise when it comes to sorting out researches, that means sorting into social, scientific, ethical , and so researches and that would give you guys more room to add lots and lots of new researches when it comes to art , recreation, rockets . basically a limitless sorting and clear sorting * a mix of both would be really really nice to see the mixing and precision and control over the researches, that way we can opt for better research order and better appeal to when it comes to the eyes i have a small question though , perhaps it is already included, or even say planned for the game , but are random technologies a thing? instead of having the same order all the time i think perhaps having randomly researches might spicy things up and create an interesting game each save : it helps when it comes to replayability, and imagine the endless Possibilities . Thanks for going through my post, i really really really love this game and i truly believe in its potential to achieve the milestone of best game of the era. Great work guys and keep on rocking, from Tunisia

    Make me smile again

    Dear @AKoshelkov, as a passionate Kickstarter backer from the beginning I followed the ups and downs of the development for almost 3 years and 8 months since the successful funding. You''ve made great progress yes, but the foundation is still broken and you need manpower to fix it. Starting with the completly misjudged release roadmap during kickstarter. Why this huge misjudgement? You are a creative artist and really great in visual design. But you're not a programmer. How many full time programmers work for Crytivo and since when? Full time programmers that are good at their job should be able to develop at least a working minimal foundation that works most of the time in more than tree years. Part time programmers of course with a daytime job have other things on their mind. You delivered great concepts and added add on and strecht goals but could not realize one of them yet because you have no stable base. The Kickstarter alone made $ 387,345 and you were able to get more support trough your site after kickstarter finished. Let me ask you some questions if we're talking seriously honest and full of transparency. How much money was spent on: Arts and Assets Programming PR Building up Crytivo as a Publisher including investments in other games. Thinking of developing a game... We talked about a stable base you can develop on... a non professional would think... investing in full time programmers would be a good idea, right? How many full time programmers work for crytivo since you're a publisher now and you offer development assistance. Be honest. Be awesome. Be true.
