Thanks, though. :P

Firefly fans around here as well? It's getting better by the minute.

 
Firefly was a great series that should have ran much longer than just the events of the movie.
It was a great concept too.

I like to walk around in a blue colonial uniform with a browncoat over the top, for the lolz.
Or something.

For the record I'm still here and lurk every month or so, finally got a civil response via pm from a dev who doesn't suffer from unwarranted self importance, obviously not under this name and behind 7 proxys. Also kinda lost interest since even if this does ever release it will probably be 3 years from then before the next chapter gets released but hey it's free and free is either **** quality, or good quality (like this) but takes forever. I realize that now and nowadays play what I consider 'the best' games released NOW rather than waiting for something AWESOME (Jumpgate Evolution/Infinity Universe anyone?) but will probably never come. Until closed beta has started and the game is playable there is no point marking your calander, hope you learn from my mistakes. These folks probably have a job and family IRL and does this only as a casual hobby, spending less time on it than we spend on our fav mmo so yes it will take a loooong time. I know cos I made mods before and worked with casual 'on the weekend' studios, and stuff never gets done or gets done and then lack of updates for anything less than a professional, dedicated effort. Not saying that is wrong but at least say it up front instead of crpytic 'we don't know'. Of course you don't know because you have a life.
Oh and not going to say too much (for fear someone may get in trouble with actually talking to me), but release window was supposedly 'in a matter of months' and not 'years' however don't get your hopes up that was a loooong time ago, talked sometime last year.

TL;DR
Don't get excited over the distant future, plenty of great games to play now, tomorrow's games will always be awesome but when you finally get it, something more awesome will be in the pipe. Chill, probably a hobby project between a group of 30somethings with a job and kids, something many of us probably will never understand. Why tie yourself up and be a slave to some 'family' I will never understand. Gamer4lyfe

 
Im still waiting for Duke Nukem Forever to come out. <whitespace> And ive been waiting for 11 years now. Youll be able to literally throw **** around in that game! <whitespace> I cant frakking wait.

For the record I think we've been quite clear from the get go that "we don't know" is part and parcel of this being hobby project for those involved and our bandwidth being subject to the demands of real life.  In fact it says so right in the FAQ which has been posted since this project was made public, so really accusing us of "cryptic" is a disingenuous assertion.  Secondly you don't need to be thirty something with kids to have social, avocational, and occupational responsibilities besides video games.

Well then, I'm sure you can wait 10 years for this.

And my guess is that this will take a year more at least to come out, if it ever does. And R2 will probably take another year. We haven't seen a decent progress report in ages, and I assume that is because it is a busy time of year and this IS a hobby project and there is no real dedication beyond just doing it for fun, wish you said so from the start.

The only thing that pisses me off is *insert dev here*'s high and mighty USI attitude, but judging by reading old posts I'm not the only one. But hey every forum has one mod that thinks they are above the common member.

And newman, you're a nice guy (by comparison), but yea "it's done when it's done" doesn't mean anything, neither are the other over 9000 ways of saying it. Why not just say 'not in the next year' in the FAQ instead?

What pisses me off is idiots who can't be bothered to read the FAQ, repeatedly ask us the same question over and over again and then months later spout the information in the FAQ back at us as if they've somehow discovered the answer to some great mystery.

They're the WORST! :rolleyes:

Cause we might be done this year! Then again we might not. We really, really don't know. How many times do we have to tell you this! :rolleyes:

Nah, mods who think they are God are still worse XD
I'm sure many agree... o wait you banned anyone who dares speak up against you.

Also, you rage too easily it's funny :P


When will it be done?

Quote
The team basically consists of volunteers who are giving up our spare time in order to produce a game. Since we can't work on it full time it's very hard to make estimates. If someone important to the team gets busy with real life commitments things can slow down. They always pick up again eventually, but we can't give any predictions for when the game will be completely done.

However since we are planning on having episodic releases, as as we get close to completion on each one we will be able to give rough estimates for how long it might take us to get the next release out.

Any estimate would be a best guess and would be subject to refinements and revisions depending on how much work is getting done and if we've hit any snags.
Lol did you folks change it? Anyway maybe add 'not in this year and probably not the next' to it?

Nope, I've never banned anyone for disagreeing with me.

Why do you think you're still here? If we banned people for disagreeing or being annoying you'd have been banned a long time ago. Your ban will come one month after release when you fail to release a campaign for Diaspora like you said you could. :p


EDIT : Oh wait! You've edited your post!

Also, you rage too easily it's funny :P

Sounds like an admission of trolling. We do ban for that. See you in a week! :p

EDIT 2 : Seeing as how the devs are busy ROLFing at IronForge on the dev channel we decided to let him in so we can have the monkey dance for us some more. :p
