    Nomadic Journals #4 - Working & Reworking - 7 Days to Alpha

    Trying to explain all those improvements, optimizations and polishes that you are seeing on August Trello in this episode of Nomadic Journals.



    IN OTHER QUICK NEWS


    Looks like things are happening. Fast.

    -Tripled the number of PN website visits to over 1 thousand per day in the past 6 days. Even at 2,538 visits yesterday.

    -As you can imagine, preorders are in-line with that increase AKA through the roof! August has already surpassed the post-Kickstarter levels, becoming the best month so far.

    -Linux version garnering attention after contacting Gamingonlinux who covered Planet Nomads. Other Linux outlets got in touch too.

    -This just in: MAC performance issues seem to be fixed.

    -Requested and granted 2200 beta Steam keys. Given the increased preorders for alpha, it might not be enough though. (There’s 1440 KS backers and currently around 350 from the website).

    -Distribution of the alpha through Steam secured and tested.

    -New screenshots for Steam Coming Soon page in the making.

    -We are very grateful to Youtube and Twitch streamers who got back to us. Looks like we will all have good content to watch on the 25th August.

    -Alpha tier will be available on the wesbite 7 days after alpha release – in other words until 1st September. If you are not sure whether alpha is for you, wait for the impressions and experiences of Alpha Nomads before making your decision.

    -We are energized as much as our community of Nomads. Thanks for the alpha-hungry messages!

    -7 days till blast off.


    End of this news relation. Tune in for future updates leading to alpha release.

    It's looking good in the videos. Loved that tree smashing down on the vehicle. Remember, don't drink and drive, guys.

    Sadly i think i'm going to miss the first week of the alpha :(

    My video card died, and the shop sent it away to be fixed.
    Likely get it back the week after the alpha release.

    Currently operating on an iffy low power backup card that's really not up to games.
    And that is likely to pop at some point.

    There was a reason i upgraded.
    Oh well.

    Oh snap, those warranty repairs. Over here they have 30 days time for that, what's it like over in NZ?

    Wow, really?

    Harsh.

    5-7 days here.
    plus 3 days for them to figure out that it needed fixing. :P

    Darn intermittent faults!
    Poop!


    Where are you boys? Besides Europe of course

    Well my computer is back at home, the issue was a faulty processor, so I have to see if I can get a replacement or a refund.
    Always looking for hidden locations and ways to build

    I could imagine popularity is growing quickly, you can thank W4stedSpace for putting me onto this game (he's a legitimately awesome guy btw, get to talk to him after stream usually.) Can't wait to finally get my hands on this. Good Luck, Have fun.

    Wow, everyone has been having issues.

    I was lucky enough to upgrade in time and I pretty much got a new mobo,cpu,gpu, and some ram, but i'm really excited to see how things will turn out with my 1070

    I hope you guys get you problems fixed soon though, and welcome to the family lost pup

    Aw that sucks, sorry to hear about that, My classes start on the 25th so that's just unlucky timing for me but when I get home, it's going to be the first thing I load up XD

    he does awesome videos, just keep in mind he plays creative. i wouldn't bother with surival, it's not really a game mode for the game it's just tacked on and with how broken the game is you can loose all progress because of something stupid then have to start again, it's just not worth it. Can't wait to see if the Trio does a Planet Nomads RP series, i think it'd be epic although the game would need multplayer first. >.<

    Yep, streaming is perfectly fine as long as you make it clear that it's the pre-alpha.

    TBH, i only do survival.
    Creative mode for me is just a design tool.
    Looking forward to getting my good card back so i can play on planets.
    Oh, and test PN, of course. :P

    I was very pleased to see that the Alpha was also going to be on Linux. So decided that supporting PN had to be done! Looking forward to checking it out and help improving it.
