I absolutely love Sea & Skies (over a 100 hours altogether since the quarantine), for the amazing world, ambience, writing, art, music, everything. The in-game feedback system doesn’t seem to be working for me, so I thought I’d mention some of the things I've noticed by now and do my part to help this series become even better. smile

I purchased from Steam and playing on a Mac.

BUGS

  • Inconsistent line spacing in some paragraphs, e.g. the Blemmigan recruiting event: https://i.imgur.com/1XJ5Mg2.jpg
  • Location labels can be obscured by randomly generated homesteads etc.: https://i.imgur.com/SGuDcTU.jpg
  • The first “bullet” icon in a rewards/events list is sometimes misaligned: https://i.imgur.com/7lPs17W.jpg
  • This icon (in the Nature Preserve I think) is very low resolution: https://i.imgur.com/0uvLHs9.jpg
  • Sometimes the engine will keep moving when there's a random event, like the stowaway. I was still able to control the engine while in the event and clicking on menu choices made the guns fire.
  • Treating my nightmares at Magdalene's does not visually update the nightmare gauge until I disembark.


POLISH

  • The map does not indicate your current location when you are docked at a port: https://i.imgur.com/Nw5Tepi.jpg
  • “Bargains available” should not be visible when there are no bargains: https://i.imgur.com/4cCQFMa.jpg smile
  • The floating in-world text for location descriptions etc. should be generated away from sprites to avoid the chance of it being obscured.
  • Sometimes the icon for prospects doesn't make sense, e.g. this seed for Lustrum and munitions: https://i.imgur.com/XiVUx8H.jpg (unless it was for a requirement or something)
  • The stats of locomotives should be more detailed, because by just looking at the number, the Parsival-class seems worse in almost every way than the Spatchcock you start with, but it actually handles better.
  • Mines don't have any sound or firing animation, so they feel sorta tacky.


BALANCE ISSUES & EXPLOITS

  • Being able to change between locomotives at no cost makes the game a bit too easy: https://i.imgur.com/gPtoe7X.jpg
  • You can exploit the above loophole to get free repairs, by changing between locomotives of the same price! e.g. Pellinore Trader & Bedivere Escort. I think the cost of the trade-in should at least depend on how damaged your current locomotive is.


SUGGESTIONS & FEATURE REQUESTS

  • You should not be able to loot wrecks during combat. It doesn’t make sense, as the event description for looting etc. mentions actions that would not be possible during combat at all (such as your crew going inside a wreck).
  • I think there should be a tooltip about assigning your officers if there are vacant positions. I kept collecting officers and it took me a while to notice that none of them were assigned.

MISCELLANEOUS FEEDBACK


  • I think Sunless Sky may have been a better name, and consistent with "Sea" instead of "Seas" smile


That's all for now. I'll update this post when things get fixed or new ones come up.
