This is a quick note on how to best report bugs in the game. You don't have to follow it, and sometimes it's not possible, but bugs filed in this format are going to be easiest for me to squash.
First off, where to report them: email me, use these forums, or use the in-game feedback system.
OK, so a good bug report contains three sections: "Reproduction", "Expected" and "Observed".
Reproduction is the set of steps to take to make the bug manifest itself. This may also include information about the operating system you are using. It's a complete list of all the things some random person would have to do in sequence to experience the same problem.
The Expected section describes what you would have expected to happen. This is important because sometimes, a program behaves in a way that is stupid and wrong to everyone except the developer. Without a basis in what is meant to happen, it can be hard to figure out what about what actually happened is bad.
Finally, the Observed section describes what actually happens to you.
Of course, it's not always possible to write up a report like that. Bugs or crashes are not always reproducible, after all. But whenever possible, if you follow this format, it makes my job easier and gives me more time to work on features, which is entirely more fun.
Since Airships is still in Early Access, and because computers are complicated beasts, the game may not work correctly on your computer. This guide contains things to try to fix it on your own and known incompatibilities.
If you can't get the game to work, please do get in touch with me via email or Steam chat. If your computer meets the specs, I want the game to be able to run on it. Whether the problem is ultimately with your machine or with a bug in the game, I want to get to the bottom of things in all cases.
If you are unable to get the game to work properly, please contact me. Please include the following information if possible, as it will make diagnosis a lot easier.
