  1. V26 BUG: nuggets stuck in hospital

    Actually if you research the might perks early on the Nuggets get more Might gains as they age and as they work in specific workshops, so they gain more Might while working by the end of their days. I dunno why they moved super fast though but I did get the Might thingy on a few nuggets. This is why I proposed to change the Might stat into Skill stat or add a Skill stat that is dependent on the workshop. For instance the same Nugget will have lower Skill stat in Lumbering Lodge but higher Skill stat in a Fishing Pier. Skill stat simply improves the rate at which a Nugget works so the higher it is then the better the results.

    I can understand that but it's by far way too late in the game, town hall should be an Upgrade to a Village Chief and the autonomy of the nuggets is nearly nonexistent. I can understand that at this point you simply gather data for the best autonomy of the Nuggets, but if the game remains this way in the end game then there won't be any autonomy and players that backed this game will feel completely disappointed. My suggestions solve most of the issues, but there are probably more pressing matters on hand like games not saving or being stuck in save state. Some of the buildings are pointlessly too far in the research tabs, the watchtower for example is probably only useful if the Exiles become hostile since it's purpose against wild animals is nonexistent because a single nugget cannot hold off a pack of wolves, which are the only hostile animals from what I can tell. Watchtowers should be a separate research and not necessary for further research other than upgrading it into an outpost. Many research points are simply wrong in the order of things. Which is yet another point towards Discoveries system instead of Research, Discoveries can be stimulated by the player, some ahead of times and some just as the Nuggets need them, this would encourage the player to interact with Nuggets on a more subtle level, inspire them instead of tell them what to do. Placing buildings also seems counterproductive for autonomy, nuggets should build what they can when they need most, if not enough water then they build another water pump and so on. Doing things for them is not autonomy but yet another economy/strategy game. I am lucky to have Black and White 2 and I am still playing that game, and I can say that if Autonomy is the goal for this game it can really be much better than that one. And I hope it will because this is so much fun.

    The biggest problem with the Town Hall is like with most things in the research screen, by far and far too late. The Research screen is in dire need of sorting and dividing into sections if the game is to have a research tab, although as I said before a few times, discoveries would be much more entertaining while the player pushes Nuggets in certain directions. The town hall should start as the village chief hut early in the stone age once more than 30 nuggets form and should also be a discovery. But I still am unsure if any of the Developers read through the suggestion changes I proposed. If the game is to be about the player passively pushing nuggets around the research tab is pointless. That tab is sure welcome in the alpha/beta builds to experiment and gather data for AI controlled scenarios, however if the end game is to give Autonomy to the nuggets then a system of discoveries would be much more entertaining because it would mean the player is using their powers to direct the nuggets in certain directions. You could even implement the exclusion system like with the turbines. It would be nice to know someone actually reads those things.
  4. Yups, some stuff needs to be resolved before the exiles come out from under a rock (pun intended) To be honest 220 pop is actually easy to make, the problem is this quickly becomes 40 simply because of old age. I laughed hard recently when I wanted to rejuvenation spell on a sick nugget and used the scroll mouse button to reach it, didn't look at it properly and selected tornado, well, A Nugget was SOMEHOW saved right? RIGHT?? I also wonder if there is a way to mitigate or counter a stray tornado, usually I play the BULL on it and try to push it away with sheer force, throwing rocks at it didn't help, if I could use a fireball and toss at it I wonder if it would become a fire tornado, would be fun. As for followers, my top highest score was 34 and boy, did the death of old age wiped nearly all of them. I really think there should be a cap on power points that player can use outright and cooldowns on powers, more followers = faster cooldowns. There was only one time I was able to use SEASONS CHANGE power, it's freakishly expensive but unusable early on. Using Trickle effect on crops and fruit makes them regrow but does not work on trees, there should be either a power of regrowth or let Nuggets discover seeding trees, a new kind of farm or placing the farm on forested area could allow growing trees as unique option, could also be enabled by sending nuggets to school and once they get educated and sent to farming in forest areas they discover this option (I'm sticking with changing research into discoveries) and learning to reforest once Lodge is built, add +2 slots 2 peeps will cut trees and 2 will regrow them. Fish farm is necessary and was also something that our ancestors did in the far past, maybe not in stone age but they did. I want Pig Farm, Like the ones in Settlers 2, best pig farms ever. @majik1213 Thank you for your kind words, once a new patch comes out I will look at the contents and see what else can be improved and will of course share it on these forums. If a game can be better with suggestions from fans it will make it a much better success and the developers will earn more so I think it's all good and a win-win.

    Two things there. First: Save is broken, it sometimes stops working entirely. Second: Death is very balanced, many young people may not know this from school but in the stone ages average lifespan was between 30-40 years, after the discovery of fire and cooking meat that lifespan started to steadily grow. The discovery of fire had SUCH a big impact on humans that it directly influenced our Metabolism, to the length of reducing the length of the Intestines which allowed humans to spend less time chewing food and more time on hunting, gathering and surviving, building huts and making babies. Just harnessing Fire influenced our lives quite drastically, and it's actually the first of two discoveries that changed humans so much. The second discovery was wide range communication in the forms of radio waves and internet soon after.

    That reason was probably old age, wild animals on a hunt, some disaster or Nuggets being Nuggets
  7. Suggestion v1.1 (Autonomy and Interaction) Debate Open

    It's precisely what I had in mind, the INFLUENCE and DISCOVERIES systems are complex and not just "lets wait a year and see what happens". No, the player has much more work to do, quests, or requests popping up as prayers from followers which would lead to the Creator to eventually employ a church to handle the minor stuff while they deal with the big things, the game would eventually lead to Nuggets exploring the universe and that is one of the turning points in the game, the player basically has a very limited time to control the direction in which the Nuggets evolve, and when they do go into space, the player should go with them, which leaves the Church and the doctrines to deal with the Mother World Nuggets. Initially a player would think, oh so I only do this and that when they come to me, but in reality, the player needs followers and the more followers the more prayers and problems to deal with and the need to direct the discoveries route. This is what I meant by COMPLEX, this would complicate the game quite considerably, not having direct control over the course of the evolution but only prodding the nuggets in a direction we want them to follow, will they become carnivorous berserkers in the universe or will they become peaceful is all up to us to decide, and it's literally not a simple matter. Every discovery, every decision and every autonomous construct made by Nuggets will decide where they go. Alternatively we can let them do whatever they please and see how that end up, however if the player loses all followers they will die out because no god can live without believers. This is what I really loved about Black & White games, those were truly masterpieces And I wish this game a similar or even grander success. The less we interact with Nuggets directly and more indirectly the more interesting this becomes.
  8. Since a lot of users want more Nugget Autonomy I think the Developers (overgods) might have a problem actually meeting this demand. I mean, I can totally understand not forcing Nuggets into hard labor may be a problem, but still, we need solutions and not just ideas. So after performing a sweep of surviving Nuggets (some may notice in my other posts that Nuggets had an epiphany in my village and decided to ditch me into afterlife) I decided to part in the debate and throw a few ideas that actually might work. If Nuggets are to have complete autonomy then interaction with them, or influencing them, needs to be re-worked. I made a suggestion in one of the other posts that there should be a sage that would deal with research, but after some deliberation with my inner creator, I think that wouldn't be entirely solving the issue of player "poking" at research direction. If Nuggets are to have full Autonomy, the player can only prod them into a correct direction but everything else is to be researched on it's own. For example, I don't see a point in researching buildings like Farms, Stone Mines, as those need to be DISCOVERED. I think the Discovery system would benefit the game more than RESEARCH because Nuggets would be able to randomly discover to fish, farm and cure injuries. The player on the other hand needs to create opportunities for said Discoveries. For example a Nugget is traversing the woods and encounters a small wild animal, if the player is observing this then they can "prod" the Nugget to attempt to capture the animal, if the Nugget has enough Might or Skill then they will succeed and discover HUNTING. The Discover system might bring much more fun and a lot more complex and enjoyable gameplay because the Players will feel bored if they don't interact with Nuggets. Making the game RTS and making the player decide what is built where is pointless in a game where the player should be a creator and influence the Nuggets. Discovering more complex materials will automatically call for building a place to process them and instead of making 2 or 3 buildings they could build a single one that processes them in less safe environment, and after they discover that it should be safer to work then they implement changes on their own. Interacting with Nuggets on a much different level is more interesting in my opinion.

    That's pretty much the issue. We overwork them. This is also why they need full autonomy.
  10. Dire Nuggets Request!

    I noticed a very strange phenomenon among my beloved Nuggets. I had a very serious outbreak of old age in my village, suffice to say, from 168 nuggets I have 27 remaining. I think I gave them too much work and they forgot to enjoy the only thing enjoyable in life... that is Black Tea. However new Nuggets don't take over homes after dead Nuggets, they simply waste time and effort on building a new one in my case at least. A nugget will take over a house if they are FROM that house. I, upon consulting this with my Nuggets, decided to appeal to overgods (developers) to enable a simple option in the preferences menu: -Automatically destroy empty housings. This will prevent Nuggets from spreading too far and will allow for better understanding the lack of arms of the Nuggets. I think ...
  11. Possible glitch

    Believers (followers) die first in queue. The oldest Believer will always die before an older non-believer granting the non-believer a few moments of life. I just lost ALL believers because they were old, I had over 150 power so I created a tornado in the middle of the village and instantly gained 15 OLD BELIEVERS.
  12. Creation creator powers suggestions

    I would add Create Nuggets with actual cooldown. This power would create 2 Nuggets, a male and a female and they are automatically going to become in love. This actually exists, create a Trickle over wild fruits and it will create instant fruits in wilderness bushes once per cast.
  13. They need to implement powers that impress Nuggets and not frighten them to death (literally yesterday a Nugget died when I picked up a Rock to put in his house, so much for impressing Nuggets through quests) and fix the ratio about impressive works. I still don't know who is a believer, the status should have a halo or something, maybe a new bar showing FAITH, the higher it is above half the stronger the belief and more power is generated.
  14. In order for this to work there needs to be some fixing done: 1-Impressing Nuggets is too difficult, players have more success giving the cardiac arrest rather than make them a follower. on my newest save I have 87 nuggets and 27 followers. 2-Actual powers. The ones in the game do little and most of them are useless if you don't have 50 or more followers generating power points, the entire power point system is terribly flawed. It should be more like Black & White where followers can be sent to the temple and improve power recharging, instead of spending power points. The powers should have cooldowns instead of requiring points to spend and followers at the temple performing worship would hasten cooldowns. In addition I was asked to drop by here and give the Developers some of my suggestions. The villages should be completely autonomous with the Player being able to influence aspects of the village. Despite usability the research is completely pointless with some of the things being researches in the wrong moments and often far too late, stone and lumber mill for example are far more important than a gas mine, Fishing Nets AFTER electricity is just wrong and historically incorrect, fishing nets were far long before anyone even considered electricity, heck they were invented before GAS MINES. The changes need to be made to diversify players influence over the Nuggets instead of doing everything for them: Create Sages (scientists) who will be automatically performing research, in the research window there should be 4-5 tabs to choose from. Each tab would be specialized in different fields. Housing and utility like Water Wheels, Wells, Culture, Clothing all should be in a single specialization tab, you could name it HOUSING AND UTILITY. Fishing, Hunting and farming should be in food acquisition and processing specialization tab along with cooking. Building upgrades for those needs should be available properly. Resources and Industry tab would contain research about gathering materials and resources like wood, stone iron and gas, with upgrades and improvements. Science of Order and Peace should not even exist, as a game that revolves around the player GOD there should be a separate window Faith and Order. Within the ORDER tab player selects laws, rituals and important doctrines which will be spread around by Shamans and priests while in the FAITH tab player would have access to check who is your follower, how much power is being generated from passive worship, what powers are available and how to unlock new powers as well as upgrading current powers. God power should be directly linked to how many followers the player has. At some point the player should be able to erect an IDOL which would help guide the Followers. The archive should replace graveyard in the function of recording Nuggets that departed. In the Order tab there should be an option for graveyard for burial or for burning. The Burial graveyard would grow on it's own without a need for an upgrade while the Burning Ritual would grand a smaller graveyard that would be upgradable to perform nicer ceremonies to make nuggets feel much better when they mourn. Wrath powers are more like weather powers, Season changing is far too expensive. Schools have problems, they should be able to accommodate 6-8 young nuggets initially and not just 2, I can understand the need to build more schools but having 2 students when you have 20 kids running around and needing to build more schools because of that is actually counter productive, imagine how much space is being wasted. I'll run out of planet before we get to industrial age. Middle age is already taking half a planet. There's too much meaningless research with functions being so spread out that most of the time it's better to just build more reservoirs and wells than to waste precious time on research. The following should be consolidated in a single research: -Water-flow Study, Water Dowsing and Wellshaft Form-work. -Cooking Utensils, Cooking Oil and Wood-fired Ovens. -Mortar & Pistil, Education and Biology should result in Building School and unlocking those improvements. -Divine Punishment, put in in ORDER doctrine -Pulley System, Reinforced Shelter and Clothing should ALL be a result of Material Refinement. -Geology and Mining should be a single research. -Quarries and Logging should be a single research named Advanced Masonry and should be BEFORE Geology and Mining. -Electricity should END stone age. Housing Upgrades for Stone Hut should be available after Material Refinement, so many buildings get wood lining upgrades except for Stone huts. -Hunting should automatically enable Watchtowers. Everything is just too spread out when it should be divided into separate segments, clothing should depend on hunting but it's too far and too late, hunting, fishing and farming should be much earlier, at least hunting and fishing should be earlier. You should add Scouting as research so Nuggets would improve their searching ability and perhaps even discover interesting things. The player should only influence the Nuggets and not place all buildings for them, in the research tab the player could pick a research and the Sage would decide if the will follow that selection or not, the more followers the player has the higher the chance of successful influences. If you want to keep power points then make them be generated at a more realistic pace, with initial 5-10-15 followers and even when I had 40 followers the speed of power point generation was incredibly low. The temple should be interact-able, the player could make sacrifices with trees, animals or even nuggets, all this would influence the religious zeal. these are just suggestions but the forum is filled with people complaining about too much micro and not enough Nugget Autonomy as was promised. At this rate the game will be released as another Economy game without plot devices and a huge and empty sandbox.
  15. Full Feedback [GOG version]

    For crosses and stuff. I will incorporate cemetery into my faith and order doctrines to select burial or burning, if you select burial it will take a lot of space and it will grow on it's own, if you select burning the cemetery will be only as big and will not grow, this will enable an upgrade to Archive where a second Nugget will work and collect data on departed Nuggets. The Save function of the Archive should have been operated from the Temple anyway. The Archive should contain information about Nuggets and research/doctrines results as well as events logs such as occasional discoveries.
