    Well yes he changed the Password, and the only reset I know of is a full reset on the router itself, there's nothing remote stuff that I know of. And If I go for a full reset I would need the internet provider data (customer id and things), also he would notice it. Maybe I talk to him once more. But this thread is not about my problems, thanks for your help once more, but lets not get to much off topic. And I get along without steam pretty fine, so I dont have any urge to do any forwarding atm.

    Yes, as many others have said. Sure, do a pre-order or beta already. Humble Bundle is fine as I can pay for it with paypal or a direct paypal payment. Of course it'd be nice to know the system requirements too as soon as you have a estimate.

    YES get a preorder up and get the game out quicker! If it means there will be faster development do it man. I like your *whole game* way of going about it, as I was reading it at first I was thinking 'oh no' then 'ah k he gets it cool' lol. I also like the whole, get the game direct from the website as well as steam and not forcing people to use steam. LOTS of ppl, myself included despise steam and won't use it, so def keep with this plan. As for payment services do direct credit card and or paypal. DEF make use of Paypal. Those ones you list are meh and some like BMT I won't do business with for past greviences besides the fact just about everyone has a Paypal these days. And for pricing, based on the info out there, if the game turns out to have as much content and features as expected then I think a fair price for preorder is $15 us and $20 after release. Now if some of the features, content that are expected to be in havn't made it due to w/e reason then $10 preorder and $15 after release.

    Sold. I would even say skip the pre-order. Kickstart it at a low goal to support the project. Reap the benefit of the increased exposure etc.
    I'm all about supporting the developers and artists that I love.

    Tyi or anyone else from the team, if you read this: get dat preorder running, gogogo. If you don't I'm going to travel to your office/homes/whatever personally and hand you a bag of money ^^

    I prefer steam, because it allows a wide range of payment options already, but to be fair, as long as there is not only credit card/PayPal I'm fine with it.
    As for tiers, soundtrack is cool and maybe unreleased artwork or books/compilations of lore as pdf or so.

    DO IT! :)

    hell yes, i know myself and a few buddies that would be willing to pay to help see this game released as soon as possible, you should add a "optional pay bracket " for the ones that truly wish to support and aid the development.

    feathy Yeah, You!

    Pricing models like Kickstarter definitely sound good! Being able to pre-order additional copies of the game as extra tiers seems pretty reasonable as well. That Elite: Dangerous kickstarter was pretty successful after all!

    Suggestions for tiers beyond increasingly lowered costs for purchasing multiple digital copies of the game/steam keys at the same time as pre-ordering though? How about tee-shirt with a picture of one of the playable races? 2 designs for each playable race (male/female) and those paying for it can choose which design they want? Physical hard copy of the pre-beta-release game in an attractive case/box with developer commentary/notes/concept art? A1-size poster art Starbound?

    Significant contributors can help name an item/weapon/planetary system/NPC/whatever + mention in the credits of the full game when released? (Significant being $500 or something.)

    Just some thoughts anyway, since I've not trawled through the previous 60 pages so they might be duplicated suggestions :>

    I really hope a backorder, it would be really nice!
    But some people do not have the possibility to pay with Paypal (like me for example :cry: ) ... It would be really great if there were other means of payment, such as prepaid card "PaySafeCard", which I use mainly on Steam. I really want to support Starbound, and I think I would not be able dripped pre-order because of problems with Paypal payment.
    Hope to see in the coming preorder soon!

    PS: I am French, and I apologize for my crappy English (Google translation is like McDonald's, you know it's crap, but you eat it anyway).

    Pre-Orders are always great. Credit card, paypal, the usual payment options would be cool. Kinda with everyone else on "2013" release. I understand why you guys don't post official releases.. falls under the mantra of "under promise, over deliver". You don't wanna disappoint your fans/customers. Having said that, I can't COUNT the times I've seen release dates for games I really wanted to play, get pushed back. Sometimes multiple times. I personally wouldn't hold it against you guys if you gave a rough release date, and had to push it back due to development issues/funding/etc. I'm reluctant to pre-order something that has no release date. I've been following the game for a long time (albeit not active in the community-WoW has ruined that for me) but frankly I'm starting to lose interest in it. If the development is lacking funds, don't use the pre-order as a fundraiser. I bought three copies of Wonderlust Rebirth, because I wanted to donate. There are thousands of people that would love to contribute to the project and expect nothing in return. I digress...

    TL;DR version- Pre-Order is cool, but not w/o rough release date.

    I'd definitely preorder and say the humble store is a great secondary place to sell (primary being playstarbound.com)

    I would love a preorder but with the payment can i use my creditcard to preorder?
    Tiers I would love to see would be action figures and toys.

    Please do this. I would love to pre-order Starbound especially if doing so would possibly help the game to be released at an earlier date.

    P.S. I just wanted to thank the Chucklefish team for all the hard work and time put in to making this amazing game.

    The moment I have the ability to preorder, I will preorder for myself and my three brothers. And perhaps a friend or two or three.
