34 million dollars in grass roots funding would kill this mod and you know it. Its not dollars or how rich the Chris Roberts revolution racks up by selling promises.
It comes down to talent and skill-sets. Yes its sad This mod might be left in the dust of the release of a thousand games between now and whenever the crew feels confident it wont be an utterly sauscey and bug riddled mess but at the end of the day its their call. They are doing the work the best they know how.
It will come in on its own time we will play it and it will probably be fun. probably.
i played this for hours AS IS. Theres so much potential here I hope to see more.
Gib your still around? wholy cow. I fell into the "discovery" hole. Ended up running the nomad faction on the official server.
Wanted to ask.. how much love to noms get? Would you be interested in having some exsperience rp types playing nomads and scaring folks?
.....and will they be able to cloooooak?
Thought long.. about what to say..
I re read the post. Over and over. I didn't understand what "optimum result" you were trying to achieve. I mean your not competing with tor.. but you are trying to attract enthusiasts? Why say it NOW? and not when you hear the tor announcement Tor wasn't secret when galaxies announced its shut down its wasn't rocket science to guess either.
Let me dispel that right now. All your going to attract and get from the freelancer community is WHOS LEFT. Sure some of us old guys can bring our friends back for fun but your not getting anyone new.
Whos left? vanilla players, riddick, disco-cancer. new russians and croats.
If you guys want a community to keep this thing going? and not turn into some gorgeous empty art project no one plays like shattered worlds or the other superior mods out there, its going to take time. Time you guys should have started on awhile ago.
If you "truly" value the fan base of this mod? you ask them.. you get their opinion as to when to release it. Cause the bottom line is.. it doesn't matter. EVERY mod in freelancer lives off its new glow so long before entering an eternal twilight of online but no one playing.
Anyone who cant follow this needs to go back to playing halo.
I love the system. The more regimented the boundaries the better your results are going to be.
Its good to know the forum side of things will be clean and well organized.
Been playing freelancer and star wars games for a long time.. I know I am no exception here.. But this pic brought a tear to my eye.
