Actually the HLP isn't even on our list.
The HLP might be the target audience for our SDK though. But considering what's going on here at the moment that becomes more and more unlikely.
100 % Agree
People play the game and have fun.
In the moment this thread looks like a crusade.
I see this so: This Game is for all WC Fans all over the World and not only for HLP.
And i am sure that the Dev's release later any tools like Fred or Debug Builds.
But for now People please calm down and enjoy the wonderful game OK?
Thank you all !!!
That was the plan. And we didn't remove the features (except for several command line options which would totally break our game because we simply do not support them with our assets)
lab, cheats etc are all still available in the debug build. FRED is also alive and kicking but has no place in the hands of a normal player.
We will release this stuff when we have prepared it and have gone through it.
We also planned to release texture tutorials, mission templates and a ****load of other stuff. I also just put in several hours of work to re-integrate the old mouse controls, updatig the entire UI screen for that in the process.
So we actually put a lot of thought into providing an SDK and other stuff for people like you.
Excatly because of that we're REALLY pissed at the reception we're getting here. Have any of you ****birds every thought about the possibility that a major release like this might give the HLP and FSOpen as much attention as it hasn't had in years?
Thanks for nothing guys, really. We've gotten nothing but bad attitude here right from the start. And now we're getting nothing but thanks from all the players out there and the only place where we get consistent bad winds is... again... here.
And you guys wonder why me might actually think about turning our backs and just go our own ways?
Guys, I'm a professional game developer and Tolwyn is also freelancing and earning his own money with this kind of work. We don't need any of this ok? We stuck to this community because we really support PC gaming and the modding community. But we DON'T support ****bird who do nothing but critisize when they haven't ever produced anything worthwile themselves.
So think about this before you post another line here next time.
We're more than happy to entertain any suggestions on how to maybe improve the game, we're more than happy to hear your opinions about the gameplay and the overall design. But we don't need this flaming campaign. We've got better things to do.
