Iv been playing for about 4 months or so and im sure they know better than me...but here is mho
they need to start looking into how to make the updates Conflict less with mods. maybe take it easy on the licensing issues (i dont understand that much but seems silly)
maybe look into a way to make moding easier for new user's via steam workshop..or even an official mod manager program..
all and all they need to water the garden so to speak..the mod garden.although it seems alot of people here would play and enjoy unmodded ksp that's not representative of like 80% of gamers..
while the game was on steam sale i had at least 5-10 of my friends look into this game and all of them said they were not interested because of "potato graphics" and no mods on workshop...
i tryd to explain to them how you mod this game and they were not having it..."to big of a pain" i even showed them screenshots of my moded version with clouds (scatter/eve) and they said for the most part if that was in the base game/easy to mod in they would buy it...
guess being in discord pulling my hair out trying to install mods on this game.i influenced there opinions haha..
anyway if they ever did try this game i know they would love it but...they just wont give it a chance as it is. ..o and no multiplayer didnt help much as most gamers now only like multiplayer games. i get it tho as after i pull off a cool mission or some thing i kinda wish i could share it with some one.
as for me i love this game! nothing else like it!!
