Hey all, I’m new to IC, a decade ago I played a very similar game called Xenocide 3001 and recently I spent some time on google trying to see if there was any active game like Xenocide, which lead me to IC!
Anyway, I did the 10 planet tutorial and I’m still very confused as to how little documentation there is about how to play this game. Just simple stuff like how basic combat works, how portals function, etc. I remember it took me like 10 minutes of searching just to figure out which resource icon was which, since there’s no image alt-text and the image names are “resource1”, etc. There’s a Guide link in the bottom left but it has almost no information, I mean it points out stuff that’s obvious but leaves out the important stuff, e.g. it says “this is your resource bar” but leaves out which icon is which =/
I think at a minimum there should be a guide explaining the basics, and then also a page with suggestions for what to do in the first week of your first round, to not die, i.e. how to set up a defense.
It’s really a question of if you want new people like me joining the game, because if not then that’s fine, but I absolutely loved Xenocide and I got so excited when I saw there was a similar game that is still active. I’m happy to help arrange the documentation, I would just need someone to send me what already exists.
