    I suggest a sticky and remove the 2019 because if its anything like 2018/2017/2016 this thread will continue to be relevant and can be updated through 2020/2021/ongoing as well. Just trying to be real.

    It was supposed to be sticky, WHOOPS!

    2019 is fine for now, because we will make a new one for 2020 and ongoing.

    Honestly, was it really the best strategy to even announce this project while the whole thing is a huge list of unknowns and incompletes without a clear idea of how long anything will take? It just makes people lose interest when it drags on this long at this rate of progress. Saying this while completely realizing this isn't this teams day job.

    Honestly this is a double-edged sword.

    On one hand, it would have been nice to go live with something more stable and further along. But on the other, without going public we wouldn't have anyone else but lykos, wizard, and myself. I don't think any of us regret going public since we've gained Camarogue, Hyperion, Atlas, Gnisha, and Zodiac, as well as several others like Vali who have done things along the way but have pretty much stepped out due to IRL.

    Staying quiet with just us three would have probably killed the project, because we can only do so much. Zodiac has been a huge help on getting the mapping pipeline going, old models, RPOS scaling, borderless window, the 64bit conversion, and I handed my fast zoning concept off to him. Not to mention all the content that would be missed out on such as high-res decals, high-res world textures, map improvements we have rolled out with more on the way, etc.

    All in all I think the project is much better off having gone live than sit with just the three of us

    Lol i honestly appreciate what you guys are doing i really do, but you're in way over your heads. I wish you all the best with it but we're never seeing this in the glory you thought you would.

    Should have made a similar concept in UE4, it would have probably been done by now; and much easier to work on.

    Love y'all.

    A new engine would be against the terms of our development. Trust me, we would have jumped on a fresh engine in a heartbeat.
