Reply To: A important Statement
1. Okay, so what changed?
Timtech released the project as Open Source, and gave us all hope that the game wasn’t dead. This understandably caused rifts in the community, as some people wanted it to stay Open Source, and others wanted to go back to Closed Source.
3. People wouldn’t know about it without the Youtubers, correct? I’m saying if they completely closed it off like the vibe I am getting right now. If I am misguided, then let me know. It’s what I’m getting from everyone on here so far.
Actually, I came here via the original Timtech site, as I’m sure a lot of us did. But yes, this plan is to “close it off to the public,” until the game is, hopefully, more complete than it is now.
4. Okay, cool. The only reason I voiced this is because from the initial reading of these threads, I don’t get that kind of vibe.
Probably because a large majority of the people that pass through here tend to be n00bs, and the community treats them as such.
5. Again, didn’t get that vibe from whatever posts/threads were on this site. I assumed that there was no communication whatsoever. Things could be handled better on here to resolve that, but I’ll take it as it is.
I’m not part of DLU, but I’m certain they have plenty of communication between the members of the team. This site is too public for them to really use as an effective communication board.
The development progress is very quiet yes. There will be a public server when it’s done.
If it gets done. Projects that go into closed source tend to die off. They just do. And that’s what concerns me about this – that it’s more likely to die, if it goes into closed source, and whether or not going into closed source will really benefit development that much…
