Re: Sooo, act 4 for war in heaven is still being worked on?
Maybe you could put out the call for it -- ask community members to try their hand at the first mission of Act 4, and if the work is close enough to how you would do it, then you could greenlight them for a couple more missions, etc.

It's worth noting that HLP's history is covered with evidence that larger teams do not necessarily mean work gets done faster or at a higher quality. In fact, in most cases, it's been the small teams that actually release something at all. Battuta already hinted at it when he said anyone joining the team would really have to be on the same wavelength. FRED skills are only the first requirement.

:yes: As cool as the Act 3 gimmicks were, I'd wish that you'd pick 1 or 2 extra gameplay mechanics and focus on making them a polished and useful tool throughout the campaign.
Things like the tower defense mission are an impressive achievement in the FSO engine, but are maybe better left for single missions in the tech room.

Yeah learning and then forgetting all those new mechanics was a little frustrating. But you gotta hand it to the BP team for finding a way to make FS2 work as a dating sim/visual novel.

I think you are referring to Wings of Dawn (or Just Another Day, possibly) here. That was made by Spoon (with Axem's help), not the BP team. It just uses the same FSO engine.

Still doesn't qualify as visual novel though.

That's actually a valid tactic. Keep annoying and scolding someone until they get their work done.

Actually, that sounds like marriage, now that I think about it.... :lol: :nod: ;7 :drevil:

BP is so good, so fun, so engaging, and so moving, that I'm happy to wait however long it takes. If I win the lottery I'll happily hire the whole dev team full-time to get it done.

Someone post anime cat girls to get their attention, wait, that only works on Spoon... Damn. :3
