UI - In-game chat icons
Once again it's most likely just a question than an actual bug and if it's the case, a really low priority one.
It came to my mind just because I was wondering how come I had a different colour icon than most of the other players I see typing in chat.
The vast majority have a gold icon while some (me included) have a silver one.
I assume that these are based on the game tier we bought, is that right? It that's the case, should they not be colourcoded according to the list displayed on the webpage?
For instance, I have dev access pack and in game it displays a silver icon while my cousin bought a duo pack with a friend and he has a gold icon. As I said in the opening, it's a super minor thing :P Not sure if it's meant to change with users which will buy the game once it's in Beta and if the one that get the final release will have an icon at all.
RE: Cannot collect log's after cutting down tree's
I agree with Panisch. Me and my cousin were both experiencing it yesterday (15-16h ago) on the SLG debug server. But it was only with one specific type of tree (sorry, I can't remember which one).
No matter what the size of the logs were, there was nothing we could do. You'd constratly get the "inventory is full" warning even if you had nothing on you and the log was smallest slice.

@NoBlackThunder about point 2, ish.. I wasn't referring to Eco for sure for those aspects, or I wouldn't be here in the first place. :P
And I would've definitely avoided buying the Dev Tier if I thought so.
I double Black's last statement, we'll be here and hopefully Zekkiyou and others like you will be able to join us at some point when they have the chance.
RE: Alpha 5 first gameplay and thoughts
It's where you downloaded the other 0.5 pre-release build.
(https://ecoauth.strangeloopgames.com/home -> Accout -> Scroll to Options -> pre release)
It has been replaced with "Version 2 - Oct 26", in game it still displays as 0.5.0 but it's a newer build.
SLG website - Account Options
It's not really a bug but I'm not sure where to post it or if I should just bother someone on Slack.
Just to be super picky and make it super clear to the newcomers, I've been pointed out that the latest version downloadable via the website doesn't specify that it's version 5. Yes, I know it says "Oct 26" and pre-release. But just for the sake of it, could it be worth rephrasing it clearly stating that it's the second iteration of version 5?
Download states "Alpha 4.2", pre release simply states "Version 2 - Oct 26".
Or am I getting this entirely wrong and it's only temporarily unitl we get the "official" v0.5 release? :D
RE: please help with game login
@andreasb86 I do understand you, I'm not saying I've never downloaded a game but I, as you said, bought all the games at some point and stopped downloading completely when I was 18 or so.. The problem is that on average most don't actually buy it in the end unless there's content that they can't reach at all without having a legit copy. Plus I'm studying as a game designer and trying to make a living out of it so it wouldn't be very smart of me to download illegal copies of other games :P
Yeah. It's always been tricky with pre-release games.. On one side you're paying to access a work in progress and, hopefully, help for free in polishing the game. On the other hand, since you're supporting, it's more likely that you'll pay more money for that same reason as devs might struggle with cash. But at the same time a lower price while still in development might help to sell more copies and get more people to try it out and give feedback. thought a fair split will just keep their copies on a shelf waiting for the game to be finished.
But all of that doesn't actually matter since it has now become a common practice, and I'm not talking about Eco but the market itself. "Pre-order to get this extra icon, get a season pass as we know there will be 4 DLC you'll have to pay for". "buy ealy access to have the 'privilage' of getting the game before others" when it's normally a paid job (QA testers).
Well.. I've went off track there. Sorry for the OT but I felt like saying those couple of things :P back to my dark cave
