The tone here was spot on and I think it addressed so many great things from the birds eye view.

I'll be looking forward to that second "chance" funding (check your spelling Tyche!) in August!

Good stuff, Doc. Nice to hear a positive report that still remains realistic. Despite some serious jonesing for a decent MMO every couple weeks, I'd still rather wait for a really good game than have a bad game now, so I appreciate all the attention to the foundation you folks have been putting in.

Very glad to hear about the milestones reached and lessons learned. And especially looking fwd to seeing the Avatar Builder.

Spurn all ye kindle.

TL;DR: Daaaayyyuuummmm......

Quote:

One of our founders, Dr. Cameron 'Segev' Johnson now has a framework within which to set up and evaluate the AI routines he has been tinkering with for years. As a result, we expect rapid iteration of design, giving us a steady stream of prototype intelligence models to evaluate over the upcoming months.

;_; I want a copy...

Seriously, though, I'm hoping these prototyping rigs become a permanent thing, and not abandoned upon shipment. They're just too dang useful. And you're only fooling yourself if your stuff isn't tested.

Quote:

The delays also gave us time to rethink areas such as our mission builder. ... As a result, we are revamping the design top to bottom, to give all of us the best mission builder possible.

Good luck with that. Total rewrites don't have a great success rate. Hope it doesn't hold you back.

Quote:

Attached below you can see the model for the memorial wall, part of the sea wall destroyed during the Atlas Hurricane turned into a memorial to honor those who helped rebuild the city. We will be sending out the survey for putting your names on the wall in the coming weeks, which will be seen as a hologram cylinder spinning in front of the now closed gateway.

After you get the survey done and get the names on there, please post a nice big GIF or WebM so we can see it. ^_^

Quote:

We will be opening up at the beginning of August a second-change crowdsourcing option, for the people who missed the Kickstarter as well as those who could not donate much at that time and wished to increase it,. This will continue for two months, after which we anticipate a transition to a more standardized model of revenue.

... We're gonna need a bigger wall.

This update was truly inspirational. It's exactly the kind of speech I've been waiting to hear. My enthusiasm for this game is now off the charts. I cannot thank you enough for all that you're doing. Know that you can absolutely count on my support when the next fundraiser is made available---that's a promise.

As a side note, I just finished Gurren Lagann again, and I couldn't help but read this update in Simon's voice.

Titans, for all that we’ve endured; for all the grit and hard work required; for all the tasks that lie ahead, know this:

At this moment – with a growing asset list, bustling volunteers, and booming code production – we have risen from the shadow of fear and doubt to write our own future, together. It’s now up to us to imagine who we want to be when our game is ready, and for years if not decades to come.
Ours is the MMO that will pierce the heavens! Just who the hell do you think we are?!

Lol, I was about to quote and list all the things I loved in this update but it just...kept...going. :) So, I decided in short I was going to ask where the donate now button exists and then you even covered that. Such wonderful and encouraging news that I look forward to contributing again especially because you do not want to compromise your vision.

But this is something I was always wanted to find out more about:

"More of our volunteers are active than ever before"

Being a volunteer effort which means [to me] many people can't devote to it fulltime, I was generally curious how much they would be able to learn software or the duties of their position. Everything you mentioned about volunteers is just music to my ears.

Reward tactics as well as damage dealing.

I'll accept war stories in lieu of libations. You've dealt with databases as a matter of employment; there's no way you don't have some tales. and I'll probably learn something.

Fair enough. I'll even drop in two Important Safety Tips right now as a down payment:

If you haven't tested that you can restore from your backups, *you don't have any*.
If your backups are stored anywhere that you can write to them without deliberate intervention, they aren't backups.

Brought to you courtesy of a client who tried to back up and upgrade their database, only to discover that after the upgrade things were horribly mangled... followed shortly by discovering that the reason for that being the case is that when making backups, they appeared to have managed to overwrite their original data files. While still backing up from them.

Suffice to say that they were ecstatic that we happened to have a data pull from them that was *only* two months old (we have several customers who have given us permission to pull copies from them periodically in order to make sure we have 'live' data for Dev and QA testing). But it was a very... interesting... conversation to come in on, early on a Monday morning.

Happy news, indeed! I'm grateful for the effort the team is putting into the game.

One suggestion for when you have a second limited-time pledge drive: allow people to pledge on "lay-away". Another MMO I've donated to is doing this for their post-Kickstart fund raising. The basic idea is someone can pledge a larger amount and take a longer time to pay it all. The pledge earns rewards as if it were made during the pledge drive. This lets people spread their payments out and encourages them to give more.

Thank you so much MWM for that great update! Much appreciated....You covered some VERY good points and answered questions I was wondering about or have actually asked in the past!

As the upcoming crowdfunding as I said previously at the time of KS I weren't able to pledge as much as I would've like, it's not about rushing for an end product I have faith in @MWorldsMedia 100% for me it's more about helping you have the resources needed to deliver a better one when it's time! #CityOfTitans

A strong foundation for development to occur is important, and I am very happy to hear that you're all set in that area now (was actually a little worried before).

Also, will admit i'm one of those who missed the kickstarter, so i'll be watching for when the secondary option becomes available so i can at least offer something ;)

As a last note, well just be wary of your choice of publisher when that time comes, while I'm not a huge knowledgebase in that respect we do know that the publisher that had said game of origin were a little more cut-throat of a company that any fan driven game would be comfortable with, and all said I'm sure I'm not the only one who would love to see City of Titans do well for years to come after release, not to be cancelled because a publisher had a bad year elsewhere.

Just OMG! Got goosbumps from

Just OMG! Got goosbumps from this speech. There are no words to explain how happy i am.

I live in Austria and with no credit card by the hand i had to rely on the prepaidcards to play CoH and CoV. But these were rare in my region. So i couldnt play as much as i wanted. At some point it was so bad that i couldnt play for a few months and RL got me really busy. So by the time i got to play again and could also pay for it it wasnt long to the ending of CoH. I was so sad. Then again RL got in the way but i couldnt forget CoH everytime i played a MMO, because they never were as good as CoH. They missed a lot of features. Sidekicks were so essential for a MMO but none of them had it and playing with friends was a lot more difficult.

So i began searching for something like offlineservers. As i found out there are no such things because of missing sourcecodes and such i was again really sad. But then i found out about the pheonix project and that made me so happy that i didnt really mind that i missed the kickstarter.
Just knowing you exist was so good. Of course i found a few other projects but they didnt convince me. They tried to make it too fast and were to much in a rush with it making it all new and better and lost the Spirit of CoH. But such things mostly turn out bad. But they way you are working on it, I truly believe youre making a true and worthy succesor with the spirit of CoH in it.

And now this news. At first i was sitting here mindblown of all i read here. And i even get the chance to help with the fundraising. I dont like hanging around in forums, but for this post i just had to register. Just to say i love you for your efforts, your dedication to the fanbase and the spirit of CoH and your self-imposed high standards.

Thank you! Thank you very much!

I dunno - I'd like to see the Devs have more to show off before they start hitting the Con circuit. But who knows - maybe they can whip something really impressive up in the meantime.

I will be attending Toronto's

I will be attending Toronto's Fan Expo, though not in any official capacity. In an unofficial capacity, if people find and recognize me, I'll be happy to take any reasonable question that I am able to answer. Mind you, given that my involvement in the actual production of the game is minimal due to my lack of useful skills in that area, most of the questions I *could* answer are more about Missing Worlds Media as opposed to City of Titans.

It is only when we stand up, with all our failings and sufferings, and try to support others rather than withdraw into ourselves, that we can fully live the life of community.

Wow Wow Wow, what an update,

Wow Wow Wow, what an update, I am sooo looking forward to this costume creator, that will definitely fill the void and help time pass as the game is getting worked on. I made a pretty hefty contribution on the KS but I would be glad to chip in some more for the second change(xD) round. Anything to help make sure that this is the true spiritual successor to the best MMO ever!

Will we be able to use UTF8, or will we be restricted to English?

I thought it might be of interest to people to learn that Star Citizen is facing indefinite delays. Yep, even experienced game developers with oodles of money are not immune to setbacks. This should surprise no one but we all need this kind of reminder now and then.

'Today, I want to rededicate

'Today, I want to rededicate ourselves to this: I can’t promise you we’ll meet every internal deadline or that every decision we make is something you’ll agree with. There will be challenges that we struggle to overcome, and we will never be able to predict all of these with certainty…but I can promise you we will keep you informed and that we will not stop working until the game is done right. After all, that’s why we’re here in the first place. Your support is letting us create the game we want to make before anything else. Because of you, we have the freedom to make sure things work the way we want, even if it takes more time and more effort. We won’t let you down!' (Chris Roberts - Star Citizen)

That is really what I heard when I read Doctor Tyches' update.

Thanks Darth Fez. You really give some perspective. Thanks MWM.

Even more stoked than I was

Even more stoked than I was before. Looking forward to a second round on the KS (I haz more monies...) but even more importantly a peek behind the curtain. It's a waste of time to keep us filled in on the tiny details that most of us wouldn't understand anyway. However every month or three getting one of these 'state of the game' posts lets us know that things are still on track.

I remember when Star Wars was cool...a long, long time ago...

There is nothing at a *technical* level in the engine that would prohibit it -- the engine fully supports at least the BMP, although I don't know without looking whether it supports "full" Unicode in the sense of also having non-linguistics such as emoji.

What *policies* may cover this, I cannot speak to -- I don't know, although even if I did it wouldn't be my place to do so. But I can speak with certainty as to what the engine supports as text and can render text textures from (assuming you give it a font that has the relevant glyphs; supporting the MICR / OCR banking glyphs might be a bit out of scope, as much as it would make me cackle with glee to see them show up just on general principle).

I'm so glad too, i will finally give my money to participate in this game.
But i'm still worry about the translation...
When you will release the character builder, do we have some translations?.... french french french :)

EDIT : And as we know that we will have a unique server, please, make something to link people with the same language together like a fr/en/du/spanish chat... or better, a survey at character creation to put people by affinity (and language ^^ please)

To be more accurate, this is the FPS version that is delayed indefinitely, and not the complete game... although the effect that the delay will have on the main game is currently unknown.

Not sure if the SurveyMonkey would be sending them all out at once, or not, so I have no idea whether or not anyone who expects it but didn't find it in their inbox this morning should be worried.

I just checked email and found the Survey Moneky thing. I haven't filled it out yet. I assume this survey will ask me what name I want on the memorial. As such I ask people on here again, are we going with any particular naming convention? Should I make it just "Radiac" or "@Radiac" or "first name 'Radiac' last name" or what?

After being AFK for a few

After being AFK for a few months this was an awesome update to read. I just have a quick question for the memorial wall how are you planing to deal with those of us with the dynamic duo perk? I just want to make sure both my wife and my name make it on there.

I can quote Shadow Elusive

I can quote Shadow Elusive from the Facebook page, where the same question was asked:

Quote:

It means that those who purchased dynamic duo will get a second survey to fill out the second name they have coming. So you're going to get two choices total: make one now, save the other for the second survey.

You see, my wife (who was the actual backer, thus my lack of a "K") hasn't received, to her knowledge the email yet and I haven't been on Facebook in a while.

Edit: She dug through her inbox and found the email. All good and awaiting the second email at this point.

Still no email, I have spam filter set so it doesn't remove it but its not came yet. Not sure if they are still being sent out or if my evil mail just won't let it send to me (which has happened before with some online stuff) Any help on if I should keep waiting or who to contact would be awesome.

Can you PM warcabbit your KS ID and the email connected to your KS account please. We have no backer listed for the email you use on your account on these boards so emailing him this info should enable us to track you down ... unless you haven't checked the email attached to your KS account in a while and it happens to be sitting there.
