I got tired of double/triple/quadruple posting in the other topic, so...
Yeah, vote. Enjoy.

Subversion it. :P

(Probably wouldn't get much use that way though).

What about restricted beta-testing group forming? Or you already have that...

Why restrict testing? That would limit my ability to get feedback.

Well... cause if everybody who's still around gets a copy of your multitek, then they'd have to synchronize every time they want to play multi for any reason with it. That makes it a mess when you're done.

Then they should learn to read directions.
Besides, if I do decide to let everybody test Multitek2, the test level will probably be a 1P Sandbox Colony Game.
Maybe as it becomes more complete I'll make a quick little multiplayer map.

there isnt enough of an active user base to justify restricted testing. Plus from my observations, a lot of people who work on mods, and would know how to break them. have dropped their own projects.

I will test and break whatever you throw at me.  (thumbsup) no matter how crappy, the game is fun, and strange, which is why its so fun. Remember the work i did to it in just 2 days, right after getting it and deeming it worth working on.

I've been away for awhile, so things stopped.
Don't worry though, I'm working on it as we speak.

Are you implying that my work is shoddy, fallenleader?

making a joke about your "I'm working on it as we speak. "

you were typing at the time ;) ha ha funny? no one's work is shoddy or finished, two things that are impossible to do.

you're either A.learning B.working C.learning D.working.
i forget who said it, even though many have? they say they were forced to release without finishing, because its never done and they wanted to do more.

something like that. ;) if stuff could be either of those things, i'd be the worst modder, worker, human on earth. :( i'm smart enough to strive for an unobtainable goal of perfection which leave me focused on doing the best i can, possibly setting aside or just working through as i learn and continue. with everything in life.

inspirational?

truth,
Sean

Edit: the phrase "i want to break it" is beta testing, the idea is to break the game metaphoricly. you need to find a way, to know where there are issues. pushing it as hard as possible to see if it hangs or crashes, end up in walls or what not. understand?

i think i need to get an overall better outline as to what is being made here. the editing is all in .txt files? that'd be awsome.

Edit: i saw something on the file area of opu, looks nice. a bigass .txt right?

Would you be surprised if I told you I knew what it was before I clicked on it?
