Is there anywhere we can suggest questions for the survey?

Been waiting for so long to hear this, lets get it :smiley:

This is a good question.

Our standard thought path is: “what do we want to learn about the game?” And then we phrase the questions to explicitly try to explore these areas.

So it’s a good question for the community - what do we / you want to learn? What ideas do you have?

Let us know and we’ll try to include some in the next survey.

I would like to learn about the economy ingame, from production/gathering through trading and balancing functions of the game which influence the item flows and their usage.

@Zouls brought up a thread that leads to a good potential question. Namely: Should your stats/equip scale down when you visit a low tiered world as a high tiered player.

I´d like to see the communitys opinion about immersion. A lot of people seem to really care about the lore behind things like respawning or how the “huge” inventory is explained. Would be interesting to see what percentage of players care for such explanations.
The question could be something like: Do you want all features in the game explained and logical or should they just be functional?

@Ben, @James: When will the next community vote take place ?

Can we ask Questions for it ?

Ask any questions about the vote here, too.

We’ll get the Survey done soon - but wanted to get the release out first.

[Sorry - bad / lame communicated on our part.]

I thought about creating a new topic for this, but I figured I might just type up a rather lengthy post here.
Some of these topics may have been discussed in the past and if they were I am sorry, I havent been very active in the forums for a couple of months

Crafting II
Mechanical Systems & ‘Fun’ Blocks
Upcoming feature
Power your creations and automate your claim.

Im not sure how familiar you Devs are with Feed The Beast, but are you envisioning complex machines and automation similar to FTB Ultimate/Monster/Whatever it is now, and/or are you envisioning possible crafting proficiency like that seen in Guild Wars 2, WoW, Wildstar other MMOs, maybe even something similar to a game like Tree of Life?

Portals & Warps
Travel The Universe
Upcoming feature
Craft your own Warps and Portals and instantly travel across the world, or between worlds.

I understand this is largely one of the key mechanics to the game as a whole, is this something that even really needs to be voted on? Isn’t this primarily in the game as is, and just needs some tweaking and a bit more development to get it into the polished state that you all are aiming for? I just feel like a vote for this would be simply a wasted vote.

Monuments I
Discover Monuments & Structures
Upcoming feature
Discover and explore procedurally generated monuments and structures.

Would this render all of the current planets useless in regard to this core mechanic? I understand the future model of expanding outward (or inward) to higher level planets to collect better loot/armor/experience fight tougher bosses and mobs etc etc etc, so maybe the current planets would be somewhat peaceful with no generated structures?

Economy I
Gold Currency & Trading Mechanics
Upcoming feature
Earn gold from defeating creatures and use it to buy and sell resources and items to other players.

from an economy standpoint have you already thought of a hard money sink that would cause players to want to collect the gold for more than just trading sake?
Would this also enable the creation of player owned shops? Again, a decent game to look at for the shops would be Tree of Life.

I suppose those are my main questions and points for now. Im sure you cant outright answer all of my questions I posed and I hope you know I am not trying to question your alls process, I love you guys and am still trying to patiently support OORT as much as possible!

Oh my! I did not pin this topic long enough! It’s going back up so recent users can still see it.

That being said, if you have questions you would like to suggest for the survey, you can (probably) still post them here!

This topic is no longer a banner. It will no longer appear at the top of every page.

let me revive this post … we didn’t got a community vote sine 1. june … maybe it is time to start a survay again :slight_smile:

Well, with funding coming from Sony, we’re now getting all features developed. Maybe some in parallel. This removes a large portion of the need for a community vote unless they reach a point where certain choices can only be made by the community. They have already mined a huge amount of data from the forums and previous surveys, so that’s unlikely to be needed any time soon.

Ex. Crafting II, Portals, and Economy are all showing signs of development right now :slight_smile:
