Glad to hear you're enjoying Extrasolar!
With the planet status it has the time of day. Is this relative to your position
Correct. Though, for simplicity, as we write the next 2 seasons of content, we may restrict exploration along an approximate longitude to keep time of day consistent across locations.
There is no way to untag photos right?
That's correct. We've had tons of discussion internally about how many tags you get, if you can pay for more, if you can untag stuff... Basically, we decided to restrict the number of tags and prohibit untagging to keep the interface simple, make you think more about what you choose to tag, and give a little more consequence to your actions. Also, from a logistics perspective, untagging is a nightmare that can cause things like un-earning achievements or un-completing missions.
The email notifications are great, I don't feel spammed.
More fine-tuning notification options coming soon!
I like how the option to pay for extra features seems like it's part of the game experience instead of a real world transaction.
Good. This has been another area where we spent countless hours discussing design options. It was critical that we keep the purchase within the fiction, but it's very hard to do that while still conveying what you actually get in exchange for your money -- and why that makes sense within the story. Hopefully we've made reasonable decisions here.
What about for game review purposes, sharing the different game windows via screenshots?
We have the CLASSIFIED tag to keep things spoiler-free, but of course reviewers will take screenshots of the secret stuff and we're totally fine with that. Mostly, we just want to make it easy to share your profile and photos while simultaneously insuring that spoilers don't end up littering Twitter and Facebook. The classification system is currently pretty aggressive, so we'll likely ease up on that pretty soon.
Have fun and thanks for the feedback!
