Hi folks. Long time lurker, first time poster. I’ve been following Stonehearth since a few months after the roadmap was implemented, thanks to a friend of mine tossing something resembling a trailer my way. Love how it looks and what you guys are doing with it, but one thing has been keeping me from snagging it during alpha (aside from my experience-induced paranoia of supporting early access games):
Every time a new release comes out, I wait a couple weeks and check forums, discussions and reviews, and the one thing that’s consistently there is issues with the building system - buildings, especially complex ones, glitching out, not working properly, not demolishing properly, etc. To me, this seems like a pretty big red flag, particularly for a game that seems to have such a large focus on the building system. Yet with every new release, it seems the same issues are present.
So with my wall of text done, my question is this: is there a reason for the delay in fixing such an omnipresent issue (such as future development focuses potentially throwing a wrench in any fixes applied now), and do you have anything resembling a time frame on when these issues might be addressed? Can provide a few specific instances if need be, but as I haven’t acquired the game yet myself, they’ll all be second-hand. Cheers!
