[PC] Opinions Wanted About PC Edition!!! (Please Post)
« on: April 13, 2018, 09:42:11 PM »
Hello Everyone!
Thanks for playing Total Miner PC Edition.

Craig would like to have your general opinion of the game thus far. (Preferably the Beta Edition)

So far, everyone has been great at posting their bug reports and blue screens. But we need to know what you think!
If you could please take the time to let us know how you feel about the gameplay, Both pro's and con's, It would be a huge help to the development process.


- Please make one post per player. Update your post later if you need to add or remove anything.
- Be honest. List both your likes and dislikes. Tell us how you really feel.
- Try to keep the post well organized. It will be much easier to read. List your Pro's in one category and Con's in another. (See example below.)
- Don't worry about posting the same dislike as another player. This will help to find common problems.
- It's ok if you have not updated to the beta. (Just state which version you are in.)
- A more formal survey will be issued again in the near future.


* Survey Template (Copy and Paste into your post. Feel free to add more to the lists.) *

Both versions

likes
1.i love the way the save data is managed
2.i like the menu before the game opens
3.i like how scripts are managed now
dislikes
1. can't create custom inputs for all controls. hey fuerty try making a custom clipboard rotate DUHHH.
2. the new in game menu is kinda hard to navigate when it moves around the screen at first/ needs to be sized with a scroll bar.
3. when having another screen out totalminer goes to a blue screen and pauses.

I agree with gordinio's dislikes unfortunately and onions

Game Edition: Beta

(Likes)
1: The new features introduced such as monsters spawning within caves and new generations underground for Dig-Deep are fantastic additions for the gamemode.
2: Modding support, while although still in development, already is seeming promising.

(Dislikes)
1: Camera will occasionally stutter and does not support Raw Input and optional Mouse Acceleration
2: While although the new title menu does not include it, the menu movement relative to the cursor can sometimes be disorienting and usually is not necessary (menu is capable of fitting to screen).
3: I dislike the default controls, while although they can be changed, not only do players seem to struggle to find where to do so, I also believe the default controls should be the most comfortable controls for the majority of players; trying to do such may be rather difficult, however some of the defaults I do not believe anyone agrees with (the Left Mouse Button being assigned for the Right Hand and vice versa comes to mind).

Game Edition : Retail

(Likes)
1: Can't really say as i think the game is as it has always been which is a great game that i have fun building and managing maps in. i like everything but the dislikes.

(Dislikes)
1: Slow Updates and news on future updates.
2: I still can't kill a spider that comes out of a spider egg.
3: I feel like the multiplayer is a proxy version similar to that of playing arma's mod instead of it being a built-in server browser.
4: I still can't place blocks while crouched.
5: taking huge amounts of damage from a 2 block drop in legendary survival (ik its always been there but i have always hated it)

- Retail Version -

(Likes)
1: The wide variety of blocks available, in particular the stone category as I use those quite often.
2: Value for money - For under 10 you get a game that for many of us will be continously played for years, as was the same with Xbox version.

(Dislikes)
1: I personally really don't like the new menu. My biggest gripe is that it moves, the old static shop menu is much better.
2: New Shop - blocks are on wrong place and it's less user intuitive. Why are bricks in stone? Clay isn't stone is it? Why not have man made category?

Updated to please the grumpy ones.

This is what I have gathered really.

Likes:
-You can build things
-Craig looks really attractive in most pictures of him


Dislikes
- I feel like the multiplayer is a proxy version
- No official multiplayer
- No multiplayer
- can't create custom inputs for all controls
- Pc control
- can't create custom inputs for all controls

I don't want to sound like a snarky person however if Craig really wants opinions on the PC Port then repeating other peoples dislikes or just being vague isn't amazing help. You have to remember that the majority here will have played since the X360 era so there opinions are just going to be comparing new to old, it should be more beneficial for Craig to understand what new people like and dislike.
 
Aliens opinion is great it explains things that are more a hindrance and why it I rather than just point out the same thing as everyone else.

Sorry but that is just my opinion on this thread.


 
Thanks GK for the new sig it looks great!

Game Edition : (Retail)

(Likes)
1: (World Renaming) I like how in the new pc edition of total mineryou are able to rename your world in game. Makes it easier for me, since i typically think of a name in  game.

2:  (Modding) I like the fact other players can mod the game. It brings personal touch to the game and allows for people to not shove thing down everyones throught on why we need super unicorn sledgehammer 5000 wonder wands. I hope to see this expand in the future maybe custom music,ambient sounds,title screens, etc.

3: (Creative Commands) I like how when you need to do a creative command with marker blocks the command stays right on the start menu when you press it again make repetitive work much more quicker in a sense.

4: (Controller Support) I love the fact that there is controller support for players like me who have feel more better using a controller over a keyboard and mouse. Don't want to see me using a keyboard and mouse. 0_0 I look new to tm:)
5:

(Dislikes)
1: (Bounds out of array) I feel this could be vague maybe an option for suggestions on what to check for. Like make sure 0's are all correct in blueprintdata etc.

2: (Shops Practically Pointless) Feels pointless to get both the block and item shop as they open both shops one. Maybe just make the shop blocks a shop block to feel a little more appropriate may feel better in the long run.

3: (New Pause Menu) The style of its fine however placements of some things feel odd and can confuse any player, Theres times i still go looking for a option to sometimes never find them.

4: (Monkeys) The fact theres no monkey's /mm /dk (totally joking) ;)

I believe the main issue is really just polish, the game would be 100 times better if it just had more polish.

Game Edition : Retail

(Likes)
1: It runs way smoother than Xbox.

2: Loving the mod support, and it's pretty user friendly after a little time spent with it and comparing your coding with other mods.

3: Has the same great feel I know and love from the Xbox Version when using a controller.


(Dislikes)
1: When changing the mouse sensitivity, I don't feel like it changes the menu's sensitivity, which poses a huge problem for a controller, because the option you are trying to hit is impossible to land on.

2: [Removed]

3: You have to find the file number for each photo/world that you are trying to delete. We could use the delete world option in-game again.

4: There's no TOTAL MINER TUTORIAL world in the system files... Perhaps someone should make one ::)

5: It needs the ability to modify game music files, to allow custom sounds for music to play in a world. (While keeping the option to have your music volume set).

6: It needs more cowbell...
