Features 9/1
« on: September 01, 2009, 10:23:36 PM »
1. New messaging. Now you can read your inbox and reply with much less effort.
2. Crew page now open for business. Starting tomorrow, missions will begin to require crew, so get ready.
3. Improved Fleets page shows all fleets on every page, highlights in purple the fleets from the world you're looking from.
4. Build times are now on all pages so you can see before you start.
5. Assign links are now removed where you cannot assign anyone.

All but the first 2 will require crew points, however the early ones will require very few of them.

Are crew points only going to be awarded for people not already signed up? What if you have already gotten your friends to sign up, are you SOL then?

i have 13 crew points and i can only do up to the hydrogen mission... if i'm going to need a shit load of friends/crew bots just to get back to where i was, it's going to seriously hamper my interest in playing. I don't have many friends who would be interested in playing and seeing as each person can only be used once, it even takes away the point in having an alliance (minus sharing reports etc).

i sent invites to 30 people and one person signed up. =(

13 crew points is good for the first 7 missions. The only mission you can't do is Raid Guarded Mining Asteroid, and all you have to do is build 3 crew points for that.

They're supposed to be universal. Where the crew is located should not matter. This may be a bug in our code, we're looking into it right now.

You should have gotten credit for everyone who signed up since we opened the crew page. If not please let us know, as it means we have a bug.

the challenge, as I see it, is that if you asked your friends to join this game before the crew page opened up, you will be challenged to entice friends who you did invite but had no interest in playing.

So if you had all of your friends sign up before the crew page and join your alliance, you do not get any credit?

Also, as of about 10  minutes ago I have stopped accumulating resources, is there a server problem?

The resource bug is fixed, sorry about that.

We have no way of tracking friends who signed up by any method other than the crew page unfortunately.

How do crew points work?  I don't see it in the wiki.

Yesterday I had 4 crew points with two friends joined and no droids.  Today another friend joined and I jumped to 11 crew points, and then now down to 9.  

So friends joining are either worth 4, 3.66, or 3.  Gotta love playing a game that's still being tested.

Looking better and better though, guys.  Keep up the good work (I love the "how many in this configuration" dropdown).

We changed humans to be worth 3, down from 4. We also cut all the crew point requirements in half, so they basically got much easier.
