    Any criticism I had for the android version of this game is rendered null by the fact that I played it so damn much that I nearly got in trouble for it at work.

  • fallenfallen Boston MARegistered User regular
    @royce - haha ... yes, sorry about that! Star Traders can be wildly addictive. Glad you enjoyed it! We still take criticism, especially from long-term veterans. Hope you have shared ST with your friends and followers!

    The ship designs are OK but I think you could've gone more towards Master of Orion.

    So, I'm back to playing more of this again in short bursts, and there are a couple improvements I would still like to see.

    1) When you capture another ship in space and you switch your flag over, you lose access to the cargo menu. That means that you have to do all of your cargo management before you switch, when you can't easily see the remaining cargo space on your soon-to-be-new-ship. Since the game doesn't check to make sure you aren't overloading the new ship, you end up needing to move cargo over, back out of the cargo screen, look at the View Ships screen, note the space available, back out of the View Ships screen, go back to cargo, move some over, check again, etc. This is kind of annoying.

    2) If you accidentally overload the other ship, and then try to switch, you'll get an error message saying that you can't do it because the other ship is overburdened and you need to move some cargo off, but when you go to the cargo screen, the other ship will have 0s for every cargo item. You need to "Take Max," which will reset it, and then go back to the cargo screen to move things around.

    3) How are all these enemy ships getting to me in deep space? After a win, I'll look at the other ship's cargo, and they'll mostly have, like, 4 or 5 units of water-fuel available. Given that these attacks happen multiple map sectors away from planets, how were they planning on making it home?

    4) 3 is especially annoying combined with 1, because if you accidentally switch ships too early in the process, then sorry - you get to be 4 moves away from a planet with ripped-up solar sails and engines causing you to spend 4 fuel per space, and you only have 4 in the tank. Hope you like having all your crew die trying to gather ice!

    5) The trade reports interface could still use some clean-up. I can't actually tell what ordering the locations are in when you look at the report for a given product; distance by farthest first, maybe? If it's by distance, I think closest first (which puts your current location at the top, rather than at the bottom) would be better. Sorting by sell price might be better still, especially if the report showed you the distance to each location. In any case, having the current location remain at the top would be awesome. I usually use this report when I am checking whether or not the goods at a given location can be sold anywhere else for a profit. I don't think I have ever used it to determine where the cheapest place to buy something specific is.

    6) I keep dying when pirates ram my ship. Could you ask them to stop doing that, please?
