I'm sure I'm missing something here.
Missions work okay, but in space I am not able to land on anything. The v key doesn't work and if I go to 0 50 0 where earth is supposed to be I am just told "stop the ship first"
I have flown around the map right up to 200 200 and have seen nothing else, no other planets, no asteroids nada, indeed the only thing I can land on on the map is lc station. I have tried going at speed 1, I've tried cranking the speed right up to 100  nothing either way, even when I'm sitting on 0 50  and hitting enter I'm still "stop the ship first"

I used auto navigation to fly to earth, and again  no object menu, and nothing I could find by wandering, indeed it was a little odd since I could only exit the ship in my spacesuit (which very odd for earth.

If people are finding asteroids and debris to sor alvage other planets I'd be interested to know how or what I am missing, since thus far the only thing in the game I've got to work is the missions, which is a shame since the game looks great otherwise, and I love the idea of a single  game of this type.

Hi,
@Frahad: I am not willing to learn an entirely new screenreader just for one game.
It will be fine if the dev implements sapi.

Not sure how I am supposed to haul or handle asteroids because, when I go into uncharted space and autopilot to an asteroid I always get ambushed by 5 fighters. Happens to me all the time.

Got the game and the demos. Thanks for sharing! I will have a look at it when I get the chance, probably this weekend.

@Juliantheaudiogamer

You don't have to learn everything about NVDA to play the game. I too am a JAWS user but I also have NVDA installed because it's well known that JAWS and many games don't get along. When I encounter one of these games, or am instructed to do so, I switch to NVDA to play the game, then switch back to JAWS when I'm done. I hardly had to learn anything new at all, just a couple of NVDA specific keystrokes to access its settings and to exit.

For some reason when my factory sends me notificationss, it thinks the factory is called ultra factory, while it's actually called Galileus. Like when I was salvaging it said something like this
New notification from ultra factory: Salvaging complete.
odd

Star Trek Bridge Commander? I played that game back before I lost my vision. Like Star Trek Unity it was a great game!

It would be great if audio only versions of games like those could be made. I'd definitely buy them.

Thanks for all the suggestions!
Oh and 1 thing.

I'll take a look at manual pilot and see what's wrong.
So I recommend you download this update 5 minutes after this post.
Have a nice day!

if the combat system will be something like on interseptor that will be cool big_smile
but maybe that's hard to code though, heheh.

Does the game save itself automatically on exit, or should I always save it before exiting?
Also, are factories used for anything else than salvaging yet? And is the debris used for anything.

I played star trek bridge commander without vision with the keyboard. I learned the menues.

I'll just bet fighting other ships was a challenge! Especially that last battle with several Romulan vessels.

The link in lav Andric's last message got split in two with the second line being dropped from the URL so it doesn't work. Here it is again, working.

Hmmm, thanks for the fixes and continuing work on the game.

On the plus side I have now found what is wrong with manual navigation. if you hit enter on any square that isn't a planet you are told "stop the ship first" even if your speed is at zero, since I did find earth.
On the down side, the v menu for space still isn't working and I am not sure how to find asteroids or other things out there since there doesn't seem to be a scanning function and if your speed is anything over zero you don't seem to be able to interact with anything at all in space, or at least not with the only two things I've found in space namely earth and lc station.

Sorry if I am missing something and being incredibly thick please let me know, since I really would like to get into the actual exploring, it's just that currently I've been all over the map and not found anything to explore big_smile.

Also there seems to be a bug with the parachute stand on earth. I tried it out, and was told it was going to the correct altitude, but the game just hung at that point and nothing seemed to happen.
I do have a parachute so I'm not really sure on this one.

Sorry for me playing the complainer in this topic I just don't seem to be having much luck with this game big_smile.

Hmm, I don't understand how the parachute stand on earth is working as well. Maybe we do something wrong here?

Hi! Parrachute works as follows: When you're at the highest altitude press p, then make some steps in either direction and you will fall down. If your Parrachute is open, everything is okay, if not, you will die. I am not sure if you can find Asteroids manually, but try first to go with the fusion jump to unclaimed sectors. Then you can find *one* asteroid. But to find it you must first jump to uncharted or unclaimed sectors.

it only takes ages. take some beer, turn on your tv, and when you are at the right altitude you will heer a windy like sound.
