What can we expect in 0.4?
« on: September 22, 2003, 11:20:18 pm »

I just read a post saying that the mineral system would change. ??! What's that about? What else can we expect by 0.4? (Just to keep our apetites whet)

Not that kind of resource system.

We just released 0.3, so the feature list for 0.4 is going to be pretty fluid right now.  However, I believe it's going to look something like this...

  • New resource system.  Not mineral resources, but file resources.  This will allow the content to be a lot more configurable than it currently is.
  • The remix project should be finished by then, and will be part of the "real" release.
  • The setup menu should actually do something.  The goal for 1.0 is that it should never be necessary to actually directly modify any config files outside of the game; whether we'll be there for 0.4 is anyone's guess.
  • Bugfixes and internal streamlining, most of which should be invisible to the end user.

Most likely that will be in 0.4, it along with many other things are waiting for the new resource system.

I should clarify -- we don't actually have checklists of "when this is done, we release 0.x".  We actually didn't get everything we'd planned for 0.3 in, but we released because (a) it had been a long time, and (b) the vast majority of our bug reports were things we'd fixed months ago.

The list I gave was not intended to be complete (or even as guarantees  Tongue) -- it's just stuff that I think is likely to be ready by the time we make a release.

Will the licensing issue with the game content be resolved by 1.0?

Just one request if you plan to add PC intro:

Make remix of Intro music.
The original MOD music is just a little bit not so good (probably because of bad samples).
Same for End-Game music.

All music is being remixed. Intro and ending included.

By the way, in what stage is remixing project.

Is it 30%, 60% or maybe even 90% complete?

Where can I get the whole(part of) the remix pack?

Nowhere yet. It's not long wait anymore for the release of the package. But I won't say any dates as there is none set. "When it's ready" is the date.

"How soon is now?"


So the answer is... ask mark!

I don't even think Mark can give you a conclusive answer, but Riku can!  Tongue


Hehe. That's right Smiley Even though I have pretty good view on the project status, it is Riku who tells when it's ready Smiley  I'm sure you won't be disappointed after over a year of waiting.

So what does "the view" say:
around 30%, 60% or even 90%
(I'm not saking for dates)
