Post BRING BACK STAR SONATA C1
C2 has WAY less players. I know one of you, Jeff or Adum or Calypso have an old C1 client that could be started up again. Bring back the good ol' days! Even if its a shitty server!

There use to be
Liquid.starsonata.com and test.starsonata.com

Why cant the test server become an actual client 1 server?

OR SOMETHING...

Because it would cost a lot more for the test server to be a proper game server. And it would split the player base which is already much too small.

Everyone who wants C1 back already gave up or is playing C2.

Even if it were possible to start up C1, it would have to be a copy from before C2 was released, all of the changes done since then would be gone, all the optimizations, content additions and changes, etc. In addition, the player database wouldn't work on it either I believe. Furthermore, it would mean that SS would have to operate two live servers, support both, perform development on both and so on. It's not viable even if it were possible and it would split the player base in two. Even other games that have tried to do a similar thing when they released newer clients ended up having to drop support for the older obsolete client eventually because there is simply too much overhead.

If there's things you dislike in C2 or you feel that there's room for improvement then your best bet would be to create a detailed suggestion about it and if it's widely received and the development team believes that it can be done then it's possible it could be implemented.

TLDR: C2 is here to stay and SS is an evolving game that can and will be made better.

If the graphics and sounds where the same as C1 I don't think anyone would have a problem with C2 tbh.

The GUI was also epic back then. No windows messing around with other windows etc, radar actually looked nice.

easier to modify ship / base / everything sprites, less ridiculous framelag, better everything

All I know is that I'm mildly amused this argument is still going several years later.

I'm sure if C2's obvious issues were fixed instead of being soon TM'd every time they are brought the C1 crowd might settle down. But seeing as most of us are the current endgame playerbase, we like to bitch. If we don't bitch, nothing gets done. Weird cycle.

I hate to say this, but Lemon is right. Fixes takes way to long, ticket reports also takes way to long (had 1 for 4 months before it finally got a response while I informed an admin about the ticket). I all the shit gets fixed faster with those new devs working on stuff. Also, there is like only 1 patch every uni, used to be like 1 every 2-3 weeks in the past. whats going on?

Less people = Less money = Less paid Devs.

Currently I believe most of the dev team are volunteers, who have no obligation to complete tasks within certain time frames.

The reason we get Soon(tm) is because they are donating whatever spare time they have to develop this game, which will obviously vary on a weekly basis. That goes the same with the support team, Dia and Voom have other things going on in their lives and can only donate whatever spare time they've got to answering tickets, then reporting to Jeff / Dev team and finally resolving the issue.
