Starting patch 2.9 Custom Games Settings will be available for everyone, instead of just for owners of the Starstorm DLC. This includes the special game modes Randomnauts and Team Deathmatch.

The reason we are moving this from the DLC to the main game is because we think the current situation is too confusing and limiting. A lot of players don't understand that they cannot start a special game mode, but that they can join one. We also see a lot of players who do not know that they can change the bot difficulty even if they don't own Starstorm. Another problem is that certain mods are only playable if you own Starstorm, but users often won't know this until they try. Finally, we think game customisation makes more sense as a core game feature than as part of a DLC and this way more people will be able to enjoy it. Have fun! :ayla:

No qualms from me. The characters and maps are what people buy Starstorm for. :thumb:

My initial gut reaction was, "But my purchase lost value!"

Then I realized, "But, my older purchase gained value."

On top of that, I realized, "I've used these settings once, why do I care?"

Then I made a post about it on the forums.

That's pretty awesome and it opens the game up more to people without it. Thank you!

Didn't even cross my mind. :lol:

But it's not like I cared before.

I'm in full support of this decision. I think the custom game settings should have never been part of the extension. It always felt a bit weird that they were starstorm exclusive and I do think it was confusing for a lot of people as well. really think this is a good decision! :thumb:

A lot of game companies would try to fix this issue by doing all sorts of things, like trying to make it clearer that you're only in this lobby because someone invited you via a little message or by simply locking the custom games lobby off from non-starstorm players altogether.
To go the opposite way and fix it by releasing it to everyone is a very heartwarming thing to see. So much so that I don't even mind the fact that my starstorm purchase has been "devalued". Good job Ronimo :tear:
