Frequently Asked Questions

There are some some questions which almost every new user asks because they don’t read plan updates and F.A.Q. There will be answers for them to facilitate the work of IA and forum members.



:question:: When will there be an Android/iOS/ :penguin: version?

:grey_exclamation:: When it’s done. These versions will be released after the game’s full release.


:question:: I can’t login, the game asks to update! How can I update the game?

:grey_exclamation:: Install the newer version above the previous without deleting it. In that case your data will be saved.


:question:: What is Socket_Error/ Why isn’t the game connecting?

:grey_exclamation:: The server is temporarily shut down, it happens from time to time.


:question:: Please add my language into the game!

:grey_exclamation:: There are a lot of typos in English right now. Different languages will be added after full release to decrease translators’ work and potential bugs.


:question:: Co-op?

:grey_exclamation:: Maybe later, but very likely not before the game is released, nor shortly afterwards.


:question:: Add the function to save data with your account! I don’t want to have to play again from the beginning! and Where is my save data and how does it work? and How can I transfer my data to another device?

:grey_exclamation:: After the full release you will be able to buy the Chicken Hunter License which allows you to save your progress via E-Mail. Your save data is located on C:\ProgramData\InterAction studios\CIU\*your_version_folder*. This data contains your profile information so you can use your data from 6th version on 15th for example on every device (except phones because there is no mobile version yet).


:question:: Will this game be released on PS[×]/XBOX[×]/Switch?

:grey_exclamation:: No.


:question:: How much $(US)/€(EU) do we need to buy CIU?

:grey_exclamation:: The game will be free for everyone but your save data will be only saved on your device. If you want to connect your devices with one account, you will be able to buy Chicken Hunter License for ~€4,50 (~5 USD).


:question:: Why bosses here are harder than in CI3/4/5?

:grey_exclamation:: In Chicken Invaders Universe, the difficulty of bosses and waves depends on the mission difficulty level (orange indicator), mission tier and selected skill. If bosses are too hard for you, try to use a lower skill (“Tourist” or “Rookie”, for example) and different mission.


:question:: Why is bumping (writing comments under forgotten topics) bad?

:grey_exclamation:: If you write something under not updated for a long time topic it will jump at the start of topic list and will move down newer, more important topics. If the post wasn’t updated during months, there is a possibility they just forgot about it and possibility that they don’t need to discuss it anymore (You can check this by previous posts). If you have something important to say — write, but make sure you will not disturb anyone with something like “I agree with you!”, the :hearts: button is there for something like that.


:question:: Why those users told me to stop doing something? They aren’t even mods, why should I listen to them?

:grey_exclamation:: Most of the forum members are people, whose opinion is put above others but you should always listen to any users when they say you broke the forum’s rules or something like this. You should stop and check them to make sure you don’t break them or correct your behaviour if you did.


:question:: When’s the final release?

:grey_exclamation:: When it’s done. This game is quite large and a lot of glitches exist right now. You want to have the game ready in the final release, don’t you?


:question:: How much description of an idea should I provide?

:grey_exclamation:: As much as you can. People need to understand what are you talking about and all ideas, especially not very simple ones like weapons or game mechanics for example, need to be explained clearly.


:question:: Why chickens but not penguins?:penguin:

:grey_exclamation:: Penguins are too cool bro :sunglasses:.


:question:: Where can I find main F.A.Q topic?

:grey_exclamation::
image


:question:: Why did that user say my idea isn’t good?

:grey_exclamation:: Any idea has good and bad sides for every aspect. If one user said that they don’t like your idea it doesn’t mean that your idea is bad. This user should explain why they don’t like it, and you can change your idea a bit to make everyone happy.


:question:: Why are some weapons ridiculously underpowered?

:grey_exclamation:: Because most of weapons didn’t change since they were created for the CI episodes. New enemies resulted in some weapons being overpowered and other being useless. Weapons will be rebalanced in future.

:question:: Why does food not give missiles?

:grey_exclamation:: Now you can only use food to sell it in Space Burger stores to get some keys. Use the galaxy shop or aftermarket to buy missiles.


:question:: Can I win the game?

:grey_exclamation:: You can’t because there is no end to the plot. Also, to be clear here, it’s a MMO.


:question:: How can I engage with the community or leave feedback?

:grey_exclamation:: You can use this forum to communicate with players or developers. If you have any questions, check if it wasn’t answered in this topic or other ones by the svg button.


:question:: How can I help the game?

:grey_exclamation:: Suggest your ideas or improvements on the forum and leave your feedback!


:question:: Which important topics should I read?

:grey_exclamation:: Most important topics for new users are: Plan updates, FAQ, This F.A.Q.


:question:: How do you get Trust Level 3 / “Regular”?

:grey_exclamation:: To get to trust level 3 (Regular), in the last 100 days, you need to:

  • Must have visited at least 50% of days
  • Must have replied to at least 10 different topics
  • Of topics created in the last 100 days, must have viewed 25% (capped at 500)
  • Of posts created in the last 100 days, must have read 25% (capped at 20k)
  • Must have received 20 likes, and given 30 likes.*
  • Must not have received more than 5 spam or offensive flags (with unique posts and unique users for each, confirmed by a moderator)
  • Must not have been suspended

:question:: How can I get more satellite docking spots?

:grey_exclamation:: The amount of docking spots depends on your spacecraft type. For example: The Müller M400 Caterer can hold 2 satellites while the Müller M408 Cuisinier can hold 4 of them. Bombers usually have more docking spots than regular type spacecrafts.



Important references forum users use sometimes:

:question:: Who is @ChickenInvadersFan72?

:grey_exclamation:: He made the biggest spam attack on the forum and had been banned for 1000 years.


:question:: What is the "Mad chicken disease?"

:grey_exclamation:: It’s a term which refers to a user’s bout of bad behaviour (like spammers, “F█ck u”-ers and others)

Wasn’t it €5, not $5?
Edit: Actuälly, the firſt plan update ſaid “near the $5 mark”.

If I use $ sign twice, text format brakes. So I changed it to 4.5€ because it’s the same.

Why are you replying this to me, lol

I suggest you to add:

“Why yolk star has 6 cannons???”

I think that new playes needs to know that bosses becomes more harder the mission and the skill level is.
Because I see very often new topics asking why bosses are harder

Chicken invaders on psp is my dream that will not come true.

Atleast there was a fanmade version of it for the PSP.

And it’s terrible. Asteroids which drop drumsticks. My worst nightmare :slight_smile: .
