it starts after you get kicked out and need to login again
The colony is far too dark for my liking, can hardly see anything
You are right on both countsDont know if it's my eyes adjusting to the light or actually happened but filled out with abodes it seems a lot lighter.
The actual graphics when you scroll around the colony are pretty cool, some asteroids are in front of the colony when you zoom in, some behind. you do get the sense of looking over the edge from some positions when you zoom. Someone has put a lot of thought and effort into the colony and it really shows the more you look around. Didnt really pay much attention earlier on today but I just spent some time zooming in and out in awe.
Go read the beta forum, you'll find all of your complains ad naseum.the best possible scenario was to give a full set of the new GB justbecause you locked out the map to get mars ore.. this is just bad design of a new era
also there was no warning that the access is going to be cut off so I am basically losing around 500 mars ore while I wait 15 hours just for the buildings to be build... and I don't know even how many mars ore I am getting in the production buildings..
stop with the double roads being necessary as well, this is just again bad design
the other thing is that the units are WAY weaker than OF units, they don't even come close to VF or SAM units even with military boost...
I would rate the new era 0/10
also why is there beta testing if nothing is going to be done about it and listen to the community
