OreSome is a 2D strategy game about ore -- exploring space for it, fighting aliens for it, blowing up planets with it. Build a network of frames and bots to defeat your enemies -- or just throw a sun at them. In a dying, decrepit universe full of foes, build up your forces and mine your way to the top of the food chain to explore further and further out into the void. By the time you're ready, you'll be powering light speed jump drives with stars, building Death Star style super weapons with black holes and in charge of the largest scale mining operation ever known to man -- all working for one of humanity's least scrupulous corporations -- and there's a lot of competition.

An hour of gameplay without edits. Lagbursts and such btw because of a faulty HDD. My notebook with an i7 (sandy bridge), 6GB of RAM and a functional 7200RPM HDD runs the same savegame without any lags.

A hint for the dev: maybe make the savegame frequency configurable in the options menu? I'd like that for instance to be less frequent. But at some moments you wanna adjust it. And everyone else wants them at a different moment.

nice :) It'd reduce annoyance of lags during autosaves while in combat.

Also, is it possible in any way to make the generation of new sectors be more graduately? Currently when you enter a new sector it lags between 1s (early game) and 10s (late game). Also, I noticed some severe lags on the CPU when a lot of NPC frames and bots are nearby. Could be areas to look into ;)

Also, one thing I must say: I heard many friends say it took too long to reach the 1000-research tier. I myself must say it is not so valid. I noticed that if you travel straight from the start to the unexplored areas, find yourself an area with a few pulsars and then kill a few monsters, you get enough stuff to build some brainer bots. After 4h of gameplay I was already almost at getting a refinery.

You kill the monsters without any techs by outmaneuvering them and letting them fly into stars or pulsars. Then you get science points and can grab any remaining materials. Am close to unlocking grav bombs now.

Those areas you mention are on the board for improvement. As to the research points, it's something I've thought about - it does take quite a while, but as you say, in the outer regions that drops right down. It may get reduced a bit at some point, though not until the solution is a bit more clear.

I think best is to decide that once the game is further in development. With that especially I refer to multiplayer and general balancing stuff.

Honestly I notice that in this game if you dare to take big risks (quick save often!) you get great rewards. Was great fun to use stars as defensive weapons against space monsters!
