I'm playing AI the First time - IMPRESSIONS
« on: November 02, 2007, 03:32:39 pm »
Hi,
I just played alien invasion the first time and I was surprised about the quality of the graphics and the level of detail of the descriptions. I think it is very well done.

But I played similar games before and so there was just a disadvantage of the game I immediately perceived.

When I was in combat e.g. I did not even know which weapons and items my soldiers were carrying. If you don't know which image represents which ammunation for which weapon, the game isn't so funny any more. I'm sorry.

Isn't there a possibility to progam it that way that you get a short information about a item when holding the mouse cursor over it or by right-clicking on it?

This would be an immense upgrade for the gameplay!

I think there are plans to implement something like that. However, it's not that difficult to recognize which weapon a soldier is carrying, since the weapon is displayed on the HUD. The weapon is also visibly displayed on the soldier.

Thank you. Yes, I play version 2.1.1.
And yes, the weapon can easily be seen.
That's not that difficult if you know what the meaning of the single images is.
But first you have to gain this knowledge. ;)

Well, I will play a little bit more. Maybe there is something I didn't recognize the first time and I just need some more experience.

The tooltips will help a lot to learn the game, I think. A very good improvement.

Thank you very much for the quick answer. You are making a good job!

I think if you tested the 2.2 beta (http://mattn.ninex.info/?page=Download), you could help a lot more...
