I really don´t think the developer was/is unaware of many of the issues pointed out. Even more, he has mentioned SB plenty of times so me thinks he plays/owns a copy of SB Pro PE to start with. They do have a discord channel were IMHO is a "better" place to give direct feedback. Mainly so people don´t get the wrong impression as we don´t all think alike to start with. Oh and as a developer, you better receive any feedback well nowdays or you´re doomed to fail. There´s just to much speculation on everything nowdays.
I see alot of bad reviews on products that just launched, when said products (as most) needed a real live test run. Those reviews end up putting initial buyers off, then when some of those initial bugs are ironed out, those initial buyers are lost for good in most cases due to the amount of games coming out and getting more attention in this over saturated game market we live in. Same goes with many things, like gear, some buy a backpack and swear it´s a great backpack right out of the box/bag! Dude, carry it on you´re back for a seven day hike with all you need, and do it often, for like a year, then come back and do a review if you like. Just an example of many reviews I see. Same goes with games, wait till it´s ironed out and optimized to some point, play it for some time, then decide if it´s good or not to you, which dosen´t mean it will be for the rest of the players.
The good, the bad and the ugly about social media killing it´s self...
But still, as I stated before, this is a PRE-ALPHA.
Just me practising my Stoicisim 😁
