Nearing Completion, at least for the time being; landscape and final touches will be added later. His garage and chimney is the last thing i have to do. You get the main idea tho.

Looks great!

It will have a separate inside eventually, but for .3 we probably wont include it. Its not a high priority yet, and there is still so much to do.

It's still great at least to see it.

Would you guys want me to write up a FAQ for the game? That way if people ask questions like "Can we go inside the house", you can just post up a link to the FAQ?

May 5 2007, 3:04pm Anchor

Hm, I think that this question has some fire, but it's unnecessary. Everything's gonna be written in the readme. Or I'm mistaken, and the guys are already making it.

May 5 2007, 3:12pm Anchor

People so rarely ever read a readme file. Plus readme files are more for help in installing the game. A FAQ has more general questions. The kind of questions the mod team dont like answering. :P

May 5 2007, 3:18pm Anchor

yep, go for it

May 5 2007, 3:21pm Anchor

Alright, I'll get started on it later today. I'll type up a few questions and answers that I know off the top of my head. Then if there are any questions I come up with that I can't find the answer too, I'll add them on and email it all to you. Plus if you have anything that I may have missed, feel free to add it on.

May 5 2007, 3:24pm Anchor

ok, sounds good. Thanks for the help.

May 5 2007, 3:50pm Anchor

I think the problem with an FAQ is it brings less people to the forums, we loose interaction. And interaction is key for alot of our more dedicated fans, not to mention, what would you possibly answer in a faq. Being still so early in the mod, everything is subject to change, would probably be best we don't start answering tough questions till we know the answers. Right now, our only Faq would be our already posted features.

As far as the snappy comments go, it isn't directed to insult anybody, and often our humor or judgment can be misconstrued cause we are often in a rush. On top of that, we do regularly get bugged by people who ask questions just to ask them, and will often cut us off or brush off the answer as if they didn't even hear us speak. This type of behavior can give us a "short fuse" and sometimes, most oftenest, we will accidentally out-lash at the wrong person. So hang in there and take everything we say with a little humility and realize the stress can effect our "rudeness". I'll apologize in advance for any comments that i make that people get offended by.

Lets please get back on topic of the forum, people who come to this thread want to hear about and see the gamble house. This is why we stress posting in the correct forum so much.
