      Hi bigdady85 sorry for the delay, we don't get notifications when posts are made here.

      As for the ship editor it has been disable for the time being while we focus on gameplay refinements. As to flying a ship around in 3rd person, yes you can!

      In combat you can select any of your ships by simply clicking on it and then take direct control of it by pressing Tab (default) to enter pilot mode, pressing tab again will return to command mode.

      The patch coming up (info on release date coming soon) brings with it several key improvements to the UI and in game guidance that should help with learning how to play and accessing features like pilot mode.

    I think you need to review a couple of things, firstly you're trying to sell an early access game at full price even though your game has very little features, it won't entice people to purchase early to "support development" and looking at steam it's been 3 months since you've done an update which also doesn't look very good.

    However the idea of your game excites me and sounds really promising so i'll follow the project for now but please consider the points I've made.

      Thank you for your feedback, and apologies for the delay this message didn't appear in my box yet its dated for Sep :(

      Starting the Early Access off so early in the development process and at full price has been a question mark for quite a few.

      Terran's Early Access however was not started so early in order to fund the game's development rather to enable those interested in the game to get in early and help mature it not simply test it. As you noted the game is not yet feature complete, as of the Sep patch Terran is still in Phase 1.

      As to span between Steam announcements or updates to the Main branch I'll bring that to the team. The Beta branch which is available on Steam to all who have the game is updated rather frequently with its changes reflected on the Trello road map, while Main is only updated as given bench marks are hit and stabilised such as the Sep patch. This can certainly be improved to at the very least be more apparent and we will take that on board.

      We are gearing up to announce the next patch now which will transition the game into Phase 2 of our Early Access plan and is a perfect time for us to make changes and improvements to how we meet the communities needs. I hope you follow the project and let us know what you think.

    Heathen's Terran is am ambitious game featuring capital spaceship combat, ship building, faction, corporation, bounty hunter gangs and crime syndicates that can be formed, taken over or joined and served. Manufacturing, politics, trade, black markets and a rich persona system for the NPCs.

    The game features can be staggering; so is it all to much, not enough or is goldilocks and just right?

    Which feature/s sound most interesting to you or have we just missed your favourite of SciFi gaming all together. Let us know on the Steam Greenlight Concept page where we have set up discussion forums for this and more.

    Looks very awesome. I can't wait to see more gameplay. Will you be able to land on those pretty planets?

      While planet side gameplay is something we have thought about a lot its below some of the other wishes on the list :)

      Territory Assets
      Take ownership of planets, stations, fields, etc. and build/expand on them increasing population, resource gain and output of various products such as ship components, commodities and technologies. Become your own faction and enter the political/conquest side of life.

      Corporations
      Create or otherwise 'acquire' business, establish trade and manufacturing, employ or be employed to climb the corporate steps. A powerful corporation can even rival the authority and power of the factions.

      Syndicates
      Establish or join criminal organizations, weave a network of smugglers, contraband manufactures, spies and other shady operations for profit or just to mix it up ;)

      Hunters
      Become a bounty hunter, vie for position on the hunters leader board and earn more profitable contracts with none of the baggage associated with military service or faction rule... not every one likes politics, sometimes you just want to blow things up :)

        Things are moving along and we hope to announce the start date for Early Access soon.

        We will be running Early Access in 3 notable phases the first of which will focus on the Ship Editor (build custom ships) and of course testing them out in space and combat :)

        Hope you keep an eye on Terran and see how it matures, it has come so far just since the Greenlight we really cant wait to get it out to people and start the feedback loop!
