Why I feel like the "Features" section in your game page is basically a TLDR version of the entire page. Mar 26, 2019 at 8:34 AM

        Mine is kinda balanced, getting as much done as I add new stuff. So not getting bigger, but not smaller either. lol

        At some point (rather early), you have to stop adding new things and concentrate on making the ones you have work, or you'll never end!

      I thought I was developing a colorblind. Turned out I set the layer in a different mode so that the blue doesnt look like a blue

      Am I the only one who hate to play RM games in full screen? Also,I dont like it when a game forces me to fullscreen bcz they think I want.

        The problem with RM games is there's hardly one that could immerse me. Most of them required little to no attention, so that the distraction is what I want (like observing chat group while playing). Unlike other games that require you to pay attention to the surrounding. Or the one that has keyboard+mouse full control.

        Looks like a very clean and "effective" way to present this information!

        Putting the element rate info at the player's fingertips allows you to position your Elements mechanic as a legitimate strategic tool.

        True. During the test play I only remember some enemies resisting and weak against, but even with that, I forgot how much was the modifier. Putting it this way feels better :D

        That's probably true for competitive people. I just do what I like/want regardless of what other people are doing. That's the only motivation I need. :)

        I have most certainly done both of those. I also believe firmly that one shouldn't wait for motivation, but expect it to be there when you both are supposed to show up to work and work anyway if it doesn't.

        I agree.It's your right to get insulted,apsolutly.But that doesn't mean I or anybody else should be silenced because it's insulting to you(not you specifically).Because again, we can't regulate what's insulting(hate speech),cause everyone can find something that'll be offensive to them.

        It should be usable. The main thing is that MV deploys with a browser that runs the JS version with the class feature.

        Yeah, I wouldn't mind missiles, but usually I encounter a situation by 3006 where the missiles barely cause any damage to my dominator opponents. They also barely cause any damage to me (although through the middlegame there's just so many missile dominators that the damage piles up). As such they're completely irrelevant to me in the end.

        But I can agree that surviving in close combat is not easy in SR1 and SR2. Without AOE weapons it's impossible to take on groups of enemies, although if you have 800 hull and deal 360 AOE damage per turn (hard to achieve tho), survival is not that hard anymore and I can essentially clear star systems on my own at this point.

        As for repairs, I have never had any problems with expenses. Pirate bases offer you a substantial discount even if you just destroy dominator ships (since destroyed ships increase your pirate rating) and hence every repair is quite cheap for me as long as I sustain the combat and destroy ships regularly. I don't even need to be a pirate to achieve 64% pirate rating and therefore 64% discount for fix.
