Question

I'm not up to date with the news for the game and didnt see any mention of the game actually coming out :p


I've had the game since Early Access. Has the game fully been released with no chance of any more wipes cause the few times I played - there were wipes each time I played -.-.

Don't worry, the game is now officially finished at 1.0.

I can't promise there won't be anymore wipes, but it seems unlikely. I figure they will be more updates later on in the future though.

I didn't  even know you had the game xD

I tried to post a fun way to explain the game to players. xD And I can add in any other info that's important to know.

I'll post a list of mods I'm currently using for the game. These mods are found on the game's Steam workshop page and are super easy to install with just a simple "subscribe" click =P.

Freedom of movement:

Instant crafting (like the beta days): 

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=729427744

 

Extended GUI:

Extended Songbook:

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=731354142

 

Weapon stats (like the beta days):

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=729726478

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=729427606

 

Food Stacking:

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=729427436

 

Those are the mods I'm currently sporting atm and give me that nice blend of the current game plus parts from the beta days that aren't with the current version of the game. Anyone who is on my friend list on Steam can easily see what mods I've favourited, just in case anyone wants to know what I'm using/will use. 

 

The game has had mod support since it entered early access back in Dec 2013, today mod support is still as strong as ever with new mods coming out every few days.

Two mods alone today that I'll be looking into:

Time control Tech: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=740266309

Weapon fusion station: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=741491949

Kemono Race: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=739437569

Gardenbot2 : Reboot Edition (build your own bots that can mine areas for you, take care of your own crops and farm them etc): 

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=729428280

Explorerpod (your own racial vehicle to use, despite the game allowing for other vehicles already): 

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=738601381

Liquid pumps: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=738272039

Earth's Finest - Crew Improvements: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=733139672

Disabled drop for Survival Mode (you won't drop items in survival mode with this mod for those that don't want to drop items and pick them up again after death):

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=729746228

Dang, that's a lot of mods for the game already. I'm surprised you don't have the frackin' universe mod in there. I hear that one's pretty awesome xD

I can make a section purely for mods in the OP.

Yeah one of my old guildmates from Ragnarok Online who I've known for almost 10 years gave me the game when the Early Access version (before Early Access became a thing) was available via the humble store.

Because it didn't get AAA style marketing over the years =P. Chucklefish handled the marketing themselves, released some youtube trailers and handled their forums as well as the one on Steam. Over the the apst few months I believe they only released two trailers for content and one LP from the crew a month before release. The game also had it;s reviews and did well enough for what it was and after that things went quiet (mostly again because it didn't have that AAA style marketing hype).

THe game was fully released on the 22nd of July and had the last character wipe for it. The devs are already talking about upcoming content in the next few weeks/months. They said they would continue updating the game over time with content and any other suggestions from their userbase.

They also made it possible now to play with your friends via your steam friend list, meaning you can easily hop into my game, play the story or goof around and easily pop out, all while holding whatever you have collected in my game that can easily be used in your own game. Also you can hop in my game and I can invite you to my group so you can then teleport to my ship or where I am in the universe, or you can go about doing whatever you want to do while hanging in my world.

I am looking into that mod =P, not sure if I'll go for it yet. I want to make sure the mods I go for are just about friendly for when I hang with other people in their worlds, the locker one for example works in your own game but joining another turns it back to normal unless they too use the mod.
