Mad I just read the update. Flugente being "forgotten" in the modders list drives me mad!
...But knowing he's on board is marvelous! Very Happy
I don't know how modders will be involved in the project exactly, but this raises hopes to a new level!

They'll have access to the alpha before everyone else to have a look at the architecture of the files, the file-types and all these things. And, for example sbobovyc who did an awesome job on BiA-Tools can start creating his own tools. Plus they'll have a word on all these things Wink
(few things mentioned here, more will be brought up later on)

Well, I'm glad it got funded. The diorama really shook my confidence, but now they have a good long time to show me what they've really got instead of something cooked up overnight to pander to the fan demands.

What I'd like to see is a couple of first-approximation merc portraits. We've known since Day 1 that Ivan and Shadow were going to be in the game. Even if Jesper is the most incompetent and tortoise-like artist to ever hold a pencil in his trembling hand (and of course he is not), he could have come up with a sketch or two in that time. But I didn't ask for it, so I've got no kick coming.

I'm really concerned about the aesthetic of this game, though. As Ian Currie said in his interview, the atmosphere, the feeling that you're going to enjoy spending a lot of hours playing this thing, is of vital importance. I do not want to feel like I'm playing with a bunch of plastic soldiers. One of the nice things about JA2 was that you knew who was who just by what they were wearing. That is one of the things that make it a game, not a simulation.

malthausen: Yes. We definitely owe you the portraits. We didn't make it in time due to so many other things which needed to be drawn. And the Diorama was really a "out of plan" thing. We will do that as soon as possible. It might take some time, due to the fact that I'll send Andreas, Jesper and Javier on a short vacation. But we will definitely show them off and put them up for discussion so you guys will be able to get your hands on our throats and tell us what we do wrong and what we shall change.

And Ian is right. It must feel right. It doesn't matter if you have the best combat simulation ever if it doesn't feel like a game. A cool fucking awesome game.

@JAF: You guys deserve at least a three-day bender after the stress of this KS. The gods be praised, you can now take a deep breath, and then take some time to get things right. Well, provided the fans stop jiggling your elbows every ten seconds.

WHOOP WHOOOP!

So glad that it got funded! Real talk, I was doubtful and thought the KS would have suffered too much from the less than professional start. But I'm really happy to have been wrong. Smile

I kept the folks in the Ja2 thread on the Something Awful forums updated during the KS, and a few of us were gnawing on their nails today. Now we're partying like the rest :cheers:

A big Bear Hug to FC for holding the line and busting their asses to make this happen!

Hazmat and Majek: If we have learned something during all these years in this weird industry than it is to never give up. NEVER. Ever. You can't foresee things. Everything can happen. Which is quite awesome. But also a threat at the same time.

And we will deliver. There is no other way. Well. If Denmark gets nuked, there might be another way. But hell, we'd even try to work than. We'd find a way ,)

Congrats FC. It looked like touch and go there for a while but you pulled it off. Now some time off to rest and get focused because now the real job begins. Make it happen and make it good!

I have a question, because the total amount actualy in the last 4 hrs after the kickstarter was funded is not realy getting higher, it seems a lot people are minimize her pledges, bec. its funded..

What would happen if 10sec before the Kickstarter end, the 10.000$ pledger removes his pledge, and the total amount will fall bellow 350.000$....
(like our radio guy, he hold his radio pledge the whole campaign, then it was fundet and the pledge was free again...)

I don't want to be pessimist, but there are a lot strange guys out there, and i allways expect everything.... so is that possible?! I have not realy a clue from this kickstarter thingy at all, but that would be more then a nightmare..

i thought maybe there is a rule if the kickstarter one time has reached the funding status, it will get funded even if the amount is falling again.. or something like that...

well then take care please lo, i need sleep now and don't want to wake up in a nightmare! Razz

We ARE funded. Anyways.

Rules of Kickstarter: "Backers may increase, decrease, or cancel their pledge at any time during the fundraising campaign, except that they may not cancel or reduce their pledge if the campaign is in its final 24 hours and the cancellation or reduction would drop the campaign below its goal."

I bet there had to be MAJOR trolling on some previous kickstarters to determine them to put such a rule in place... Thank God that it can't happen to us...

Quote Grunty: "I am elated!"

Congrats Full Control, now go get yourself properly hammered (provide video of the event if possible :cheers: ), then recuperate some days, because NOW the pressure is on to deliver! :taskmaster:
And you know you will have to work under very tight scrutiny of us here and we expect you to deliver some more concrete material ASAP, where the Kickstarter already lacked severely in these regards.

So you better not even think about taking chances of giving us second guesses about having put our hope and faith (and money) into the right people for the job! :nono:

The community expects very close and extensive in depth communication about the progress of the developement process right from the start. So the documentation and coverage of pretty much everything you do from now on will be as important as the making of the game itself. :newstuff:

So, Javier, go get a proper rest and then get that graphics tablet smoking! Everyone expects you to deliver your best work yet, to recapture the magic of the classical JA style and transfer it into the 21st century and an additional dimension.

We Bearspitters are quite a patient lot, but you got us all hyped up and excited, so it
