^ Really that's why I bought it more than anything. The perks and stuff are fun, but I think it's important to show support for this game early on. From a developer's point of view I could imagine having the support (both financial and morale) of your community makes it more rewarding to develop a beautifully crafted game.
Me personally, I waited for a bit to see how the flow of communication and sneak peeks worked in comparison to RCTW. When I saw Frontier actively feeding the community, that's when I decided to buy into the Coaster Head package.
Yep, you can say it so much better than me
But i did it quite simular.
