First post - let me say, I'm thrilled to see this product. What a great classic title to pick up and modernize, and what a great result!
I have a few thoughts/questions. First is about production times.
In the beta, I can't seem to adjust initial resources or production rate. What I get when starting a game is extremely limited, and I almost can't believe the slowness of production could be intentional. Other things that seem like beta issues are less of a big deal, but that one, plus the lack of time warp on command (only automatic when travelling) makes the beta more or less unplayable for enjoyment in its current form. At the same time, these seem like they should be relatively easy things to fix.
Is the slow, unadjustable item production rate a limitation of the beta in its current form? Or is there a way to adjust it I haven't found yet?
