Re: 09-03-15 - An Estimate
Fair enough. Apology accepted.

But you can see now why we've been reluctant to give information on a release date in the past. Your comments were very mild compared to some of the  ones I've seen from ****heads in the past.

Probably why I got so annoyed at the merest suggestion that crap was starting up again.

Re: 09-03-15 - An Estimate
OK... its coming to the end of may. Any new ETA?

Nope.

Still waiting on a few things we can't give an ETA for so there's no sensible way to change the ETA.
So you guys are waiting on .11, correct?

Yes but the delays I refer to include internal ones rather than just 3.6.11.

Re: 09-03-15 - An Estimate
But delays are good when we know you guys are acyually working hard on the project... right? Maybe we'd get more features than the original planned R1.

But seriously people needs to grab some beer and relax. And ***** about it here.  :hopping: Ummm... Not here...

Actually, we've had to cut down on planned stuff for R1 to get it out of the door anytime soon. The reason for the recent call for more art people is that we simply dont have enough of active members to produce large number of assets with the kind of quality we strive for.

Re: 09-03-15 - An Estimate
HEY hey hey stop fighting people... feel free to slug it out elsewhere.
Anyway, they gave a good estimate, they tried their best, so shuddup.
I'm not a fanboi but unconstructive ranting is counterproductive and I want the game the minute its released. Yes, I'll even upgrade my internet just to download it fast  :lol:

So yeah please continue to keep us updated, just don't throw too much effort into it :D

Also, consider uploading it on fileplanet. Lets try crashing their servers!!!

I think what IF meant to say was update us at your leisure, take all the time you need and put all the effort you can into it. If people want teams that must meet deadlines there are plenty of commercial games companies out there (and we see how well many of those rushed projects turn out).

Yeah, with Real Life TM and a noobish attempt at modding.

Yeah precisely, thank you.
Now consider putting it up on file front.

Filefront sucks if you don't happen to live in America. It's almost totally unusable over here. Anyway, don't worry, it'll be available, very likely through multiple download options. If we're capable of actually making the game, I think we can handle choosing where to upload it  :)

Re: 09-03-15 - An Estimate
I'd say BitTorrent'd be the best idea, and it wouldn't cost a cent.

Re: 09-03-15 - An Estimate
We will keep you updated. Thing is, majority of recent developement has been on the coding/scripting side of things and while it's cool stuff, it's not exactly something we can show pretty screenshots of.

By that you also mean FREDding, but in an understandable way for those not familiar with FreeSpace?

What? I think they meant coding and scripting.

Re: 09-03-15 - An Estimate
When talking with people who're not familiar with FreeSpace "coding and scripting" might stand for "FREDding"...

It's a possibility, but in the interests of politeness, you should put it in a way that doesn't sound like you're correcting Kara.
