Here's my prediction.
BtRL will remain quiet and nobody will give a darn about it. Omni will probably do 90% of the work as he's probably the worst person to work with. I would have a hard time believing he treats fellow Devs any better than fans.
Then one day, some 6 years from now, (if 2012 proves not to be the year of the destruction of mankind as the Mayans and a few dozen other religions and belief systems predict) they will release the game.
People will most likely download it, play it, and proceed on ignoring Omni or anybody else that ever worked on it, as if the game magically appeared out of nowhere and made itself.
It'd sure suck to be a Dev when nobody gives a rats left butt cheek about your work.
But the BtRL folk are getting and will get what they deserve.
Sorry if I sound harsh, but as the founder of the biggest BtRL gaming clan, I was hit pretty hard when the only game we supported died, and along with it so did BSG9 along with all the other BtRL clans.
It's hard to forget something like that.
That's why it might seem that those few times that I get the time to visit this forum, I always end up posting on BtRL topics lol.
I need to stop doing that.
Speaking of Diaspora....those Raptor cockpit and interiors look AWESOME!
