Home Base Feedback Thread!
Home Base is a game in beta. This means it is in many ways incomplete. While you’re playing the game, you’ll likely run into bugs and other issues that make playing less enjoyable. This thread is a space for you to tell us about:
-Bugs you’ve found
When you write about a bug, it is really helpful for you to format it in a way we can easily show our developers (kind of like an RP form, isn’t it? :P)
Web Browser (Chrome/Firefox/Internet Explorer/Safari/etc):
Version of iOS or Android (ex. iOS 12.1 or Android 9.0 Pie):
Mobile App Version (find this in the in-game Settings Menu): Right now there's only one version, but over the next few weeks we'll be making updates to the game so it's useful to know which version you're using.
Detailed explanation: The more information here the easier it is for us to find and fix it! For example, instead of “my game crashed” say “my game crashed after exiting the 39 Clues minigame before it ended” or “my game crashed after clicking to buy an item in the store when I didn’t have enough tokens” If you’re able to give concrete steps to make the bug happens that’s extra useful.
If you don’t know all the browser/version information it’s fine. The *most important thing* is to give a detailed explanation and/or explain the steps you took when the bug happened.
I’ll respond to posts here if I need more information about a bug or want to clarify something, but for the most part I won’t be able to tell you 100% whether we’re making a change or not. When we do make updates, I’ll post a Change Log that includes the things we’ve updated/fixed.
Map games can be a little wonky right now, sometimes avatars don’t appear as you’d expect coming out
If someone requests a feature you agree with, star their post to show your support. You’re the reason we’re building this game, so of course we want to hear your thoughts on what features will make it truly great!
We likely won’t be able to do all the things you want, for a variety of reasons. Things that sound easy on paper often are pretty tough to develop. Pets, for instance. We’d love to add them, but including a whole system for a creature that follows you around and appears without issues for everyone else in the server is actually pretty tricky. Doesn’t mean it will never happen, it just means it takes a lot more development time and resources than you’d think, so we have to have a long-term plan for it.
Don’t let that deter you from giving us your biggest, grandest ideas - just know as much as we might want to do something, sometimes we won’t be able to fit it in yet with all the other things we have to build and sometimes we just won’t be able to do it for technical reasons.
These aren’t exactly bugs, but are still problems you have with the game. For example, having trouble reading text in an area because it’s too small, or accidentally pressing a button because it’s placed too closely to a different button.
Please describe your complaint in as much detail as possible. Include where (which island, menu, game etc) and what about it bothers you. Off the top of my head I know that username colors in chat are sometimes really bright colors making them impossible to read. That's an example of a complaint.
I will be deleting any very off-topic posts to keep it easy to read in here. (Yes that includes "First".)
I hope you find this kind of cool, and get to learn something about game development through it! Know that you're making a huge impact on the future of the game :)
