Re: 1.6 RC 1

I have played a bit now to check the new things in the release candidate. I only play "normal", with the original game + Corporate Command, and with a curious, explore everything permadeath mindset, like a new player from Steam might do. The game seems quite good overall! A couple of points that I d...

Re: Constructive criticism: name one thing that annoys you m

The fact that the game is developed at a snails pace, and is never truly finished or bug-cleaned. It turns people away and has to be bad for business, so I cant understand why this is happening.

Want to sell the game?
Include Kate Morgenthal on her command bridge, with cleavage and tight uniform. Absolutely nothing sells like sex.

Re: The Beginner's Guide to Commerce [WIP guide]

Very nice writeup. I have two comments after playing one vanilla game with the Sapphire right now: -Early mining is still great for getting a nice profit in the first few systems to afford some decent gear. You cant expect to be showered in ithalium, but finding a good vein of cerallox or palladium ...

Re: 1.3 Released!

Woha... one system before Charon, I happened upon a worrying sight... five(5) Chimeric Charon Pirate Strongholds next to each other, with multiplying Chimeras everywhere! I invoked Sustain and flew into the middle for fun, the entire screen was filled up completely with Chimeric Vikings, and it took...

Re: Game balance: Defend the Huari Temple mission

I recall doing a pretty good job at this mission once, using the enhanced Akan 600 turret I got from Dvalin, with a few extra enhancers added on for more power. That, and a NAMI launcher with Stiletto and Lucifer missiles.

It's probably tougher now with the improved Earth Slavers.

About the Freyr, assuming the ships will continue to fly towards the core in part II, would not the Freyr be obsolete after leaving human space?

I doubt the Rasiermesser coorporation has branches outside the Iocrym blockade...

Re: 1.3 RC 2

Edit2: New TX3 auton is a very smart concept, but is hampered due to being suicidal. Had the pleasure of trying it out in an ordinary playthrough, vanilla with CC, flying the Sapphire. It is absolutely a nice little addition. Unfortunately, I lost mine right away to a Sapiens shot, wich irradiated ...

[1.3 RC1] Anton Nasser Anaxas mission never stops firing

This is last release candidate, with no mods, pure vanilla beta version. As title says, I took the Anaxas mission to destroy the chimeric corporate station with Kate and Anton. I had not until this time encountered any problems at all with missions, escorts, Anton, autons or wingmen, everything like...

Transcendence development very slow?

Greetings Transcendence is a good game. A little gem or jewel, with so much attention to detail, and a fluid game experience. But there is a problem that I want to post about. Every month or so, I check in to this forum to see if anything new has happened to the game. Maybe a new version to play, or...

Very nice :)

If I had read this interview without knowing the game from before, I would have tried it out at once.

Re: Ideas for growing the community

Hello I am going to be blunt and say what I think, sorry if can sound unpleasant. Transcendence is an excellent game, but it seems only to be for the small group of very computer-knowledgable people, who care to follow development over many years. Most casual gamers are not like this at all, as I a...

Re: Modding & Corporate Command

Re: Arena walls/gate system need to go

Seems to me it is a lot easier/fewer chances of exploits with the system today: a small area closed off by walls. I look at it like MadMax Thunderdome! (Not really 2d walls but an enclosed sphere/ellipse) :) Two ships enter! One ship leave! MasterBlaster! This would be a spectator-sport, a gladiator...
