Well I can't speak directly for the dev but I know in my projects there's a pretty hard line between debug and release builds that enables or disables different sets of content/functionality. It's good for delimiting things. Sometimes things break when the code becomes enabled or disabled for produ...

Curious here.. The cheat menu works already.. Why not just give it out as it is? I mean, it seems like more work to remove it every release. Why not just leave in what is there and don't spend time improving it until later? Let us have our cake and eat it as well. What am I not understanding here?

In my opinion, having the cheats can allow us to set up things that might be difficult to do to help with testing. Personally, I'm in the alpha to help with the testing. Having access to the cheats allows me to set up things like "A fire starts at the same time in 2 separate locations while the...

Thoughts on Alpha 3.1?

Pros: Love the new setup for fog of war. Best of both worlds. Small update (This is a Pro because it allows for more focused testing. Disappointing, but understandable). Cons: The sleeping Z's need to go. Hopefully staff won't be able to see through walls. He mentioned that you would be able to see ...

To the point where in fact, each unit only revealed a very small area around himself (should probably not reveal anything if the power goes off, for example - unless they have a torch). Even CCTV could be affected. Side note.. When the power goes off, the entire area affected by the power outage sh...

Difficult to know from the tweet though whether the god-view thingy still exists. I hope not.


Same here. I think the "god-view" was so that people could still build in the fog of war. Now that it isn't an issue, I would be disappointed if the god-view was still there.

1) Fog of war should take into account walls. 2) When the mouse cursor is hovering over the blocked line of sight, overlay some things. I.e. the fake heads when tunneling happens. This requires a guard to find it and you can't "Cheat" by scanning it yourself. 3) Guards should reveal like t...

but we are not in this for quickly testing things. This is going to be in Alpha for a long time, and there are not going to be Bug fixes in the Alpha, just more and more additions. I think we have it good right now. Just be happy with what you have got, and stop complaining because you don't have i...

I don't see why it would hurt to exactly have them; I, and I'm sure many others, would enjoy them. Maybe make it only possible to turn on by manually editing the settings file so that more casual players don't need to worry about it? When I've done QA for companies (Paid QA, not volenteer QA), I've...

There are dev options which are currently not included in public releases. I can see why they don't - we're testing the game not meant to be messing with it. I voted yes though, but I think a limited form would probably be best What better way to test then to be able to set up situations to test wi...

Give access to the Dev Tools

I'd like (if possible) to be given access to the dev menu we saw in the video for eurogaming. Is there a reason why it is removed from the alpha?

C'mon guys. Let us see our own dig maps and be able to place things from that big menu of staff. :)

It said that it worked and the data was updated. However, when I pulled up everyones info, it wasn't on there.

Also, I didn't realize that you can have a nickname AND a surname. As I understood the directions, you can have one or the other. Is it possible to reset mine? "Phillip Vector"?

How do I get ahold of the developers screen along with the cheat menu? C'mon.. Let us play around with the stuff like that. :)
