Lovin it so far!

Totally dig the new system where Command got removed from the Character Sheet Stats & got a whole Skill Tree kinda thing all to itself... way better then having only Stat Points & SIX Attributes, though I still can't help but to be nervous about if 5 Points per lvl up is still gonna not really be enough, but i'm gonna give the Vanilla way a try first & experience it & see how it goes.

Dang it's been so long since my Drox 1 days... bout dropped my jaw when I finally remembered how to get into my Account here & found a old Post of mine here & it dated all the way in the halibut back to 2013... I can't remember anymore what the Player Max Level was in Drox 1, thus if it's any different than the Max Lvl in Drox 2. Also, is there a limit to how much of the Tactics Screen skill stuff ya can fill before ya run outta Points ya can ever get for it?

Hope ya'all here have been doin well since I last roamed here.

The max player level is 100.

I don't remember the exact numbers, but if you put all your skill points into hull upgrades you will only have a few left over for skills. If you try to put all of them into skills, you will only cover 20%-25% or so of the skill maxes.

Thank you so much for the response!

In that case, can the Character or the Tactical Points be Respecced if i'm not satisfied with what I tried out?

Cortex and many other races have a a respec option at their planets. Points into hull increases is permanent, but everything else can be respecced.

So... Since Drox Operative 2 was release - what next? An expansion?
I am not a big fan of space sims, and I am interested if you're going to make a new action-rpg game. I read that you think to switch to another engine for good graphics and quality audio, and it would really be cool to create a definitive game with all the content on your old horse engine. Like Din's Legacy or Zombasite, but better.

Maybe a spin off where ya switch points of view & play the 4x aspect & try to go all Stellaris while NPC Drox Operatives trod all over ya... or help ya... or ignore ya, seemingly on a schizophrenic whim? The Races can't see Drox High Command orders after all... ;P (Imagine playing as an Emerging Race, go through all that trouble to survive & make it to the Space Age, then ya make it onto the Sector Screen ready to start exploring... just in time to immediately get a big face full of Drox-fired Doomsday Weapon suddenly parked right on top of your Planet & blown to smithereens just cause they had an invisible Drox Guild Quest to end your Race's existence... XD )

Another funny idea... a spin off where ya play as a fresh new face in the ranks of the Drox High Command & ya play Armchair General over the Drox Operative subordinates while engaging in Politics with the other fellow Drox High Command Brass. :P

Perhaps could make a Drox 2 DLC that rips off *cough* I mean, 'takes inspiration from' Deathloop, where Players can play Drox as is (Would act like Colt's play...), while other Players can play Player Versions of Bounty Hunters angry Races set after the Drox Operative! (Would act like like Julianna's play!)
