I'm a Patient Gamer; i don't pre-order anything because there's no reason to do this in 2019. And i don't buy anything upon release; if they want beta testers they can pay me. I'll watch the release; if it seems decent i'll buy in a few months down the road. No sooner than that.

Where's the option "until the major mods have moved over"?

 

To me ksp is not fun without far, a life support mod and kerbal construction time.

I know I want life support, I know I want a mod that adds time as a variable (to complement life support, no rescue missions are suddenly a race against the clock with anything you have left over from previous launches - instead of being able to build the perfect rocket).

 

I know I want far as stock aero engine is just abysmal.

 

Of course if they add those to the main game I might as well just buy it, but so far they didn't even *hint* at this.

It's missing the option "whenever there's a worthwhile discount". 

This might be a preorder or a sale, but I'm not touching it until it is priced reasonably in my currency.

Not enough information at this point.  I don't support early access anymore.  If it seems like something I'll enjoy, I'll probably buy it once they finish the game a few updates after release.

Probably: When I'm sure it'll be released on my platform.  (Which likely means when it *is* released for Mac.)

I'll probably buy it a week or two after release. That way I can see what I'm getting into when I do start playing.

There's no option for "I'm not going to buy it early access" for section 2, therefore I can't answer the pole.

Yeah I'm not sure what question 2 means, in question 1 I already state when I'll start using it. If that version is called early access or not I don't care.

Added option for no buy into early access.

Question 1 deals with the assumption that there will not be a early access.

Question 2 asks if you would buy into early access if it has an early access program.

I'm usually a patient gamer but KSP is my exception, there are no other next gen alternatives and all the new mechanics I want from mods (mainly bases, stations and rover parts, reasons to build them, colonies and spaceports) are already confirmed and there are hopes for other interesting mechanics (radiation shields and rotating habitats).

No option for, 'very soon after day1 - most likely'.

I hope voting 'day 1' hasn't tied me into an unbreakable contract though :D.  Just in case circumstances force me to wait a few days.

You fool! I have trapped you! :D

But in all seriousness, putting another voting option to include "A day or two after launch" would be redundant. You're pretty much buying it day one, so you voted fine.

Voted as close as I could to "Currently trying to get a passport and figure out how to get inside the studio at night to play in secret and leave mysterious feedback and crates full of just barely legal strength energy drinks scattered to speed up the devs because every single second until KSP2 goes full release is complete hell on earth that can only be somewhat alleviated by the KSP 1.8 update that is already taking so long it physically hurts my entire existence."

Sarcasm:

 

If KSP Early access is available I will definitely get it, but if they offer me special perks I might reconsider

If it has what looks like challenging progression and well thought out missions (that add to replay value) I'll grab it next summer, if it looks like another sandbox grinder not at all.

My pre-order policy is simple: . <syntax error> [DOES NOT COMPUTE] What is that you say? Buying before I even know what the product actually is? And paying extra just for doing so? Yes yes, I also buy swamp real estate, random bridges and treasure maps at garage sales.

No.

My 'early access' policy is simple too: quid pro quo. I'll be a free beta tester if it lowers what I have to pay for the product. The current trend of asking me to pay extra for the 'privilege' to deal with bugs is a sure way of ending up on my 'we'll see somewhere down the line if you can still convince me you can actually finish what you started' pile. I don't think I'm exceptionally patient, but then I also have a couple thousand games to keep me busy while I wait. Plus of course in this case the eternally-almost-finished original KSP. I think I can manage to pass my time until KSP2 is close to fulfilling all its promises.

Perks? I hope this is not your way of saying 'we already plan to add some stuff after release and call it DLC, and you may get some of that as a gift - yes, we'll call it a gift!'.

 

TL;DR: show me what you got, and tell me how much you want for it. If it seems equitable, I might buy. That's it. No pics, no clicks I mean, no tangible product, no buy.
