Hey, everyone. We are still working on the next patch. There is a weird problem with the build right now where load times have gotten much worse. The programmers are on it and we are hoping to release the patch sometime this week.

Thanks for the update!

 

In the future it would be nice to see a weekly status blurb. A little post goes a long way toward appeasing us, your voracious fans.

I hope you're able to locate and iron out that bug quickly, cause I'm really excited to see the progress the game has made this past month.

Anything I could do to help your programmers with their work? Praying to a god of their choice? Wishing on a star? Screaming at them in german?

I discovered today the power of sport beans in boosting productivity. I was coding like Cornholio all morning.

 

That's right, eating jelly beans is now an athletic activity!

To be fair it must take time to load that much awesome!  Thanks for the update, looking forward to the build!

This isn't a bad idea. I will try to do a better job of posting build status updates for you fine folks.

Maybe burn some incense and sacrifice a goat?  Hell, if sacrificing the goat doesn't appeal to their pagan faith, nothing will.  ...And we can always say, "you don't want to end up like the goat, do you?  I'd hurry if I were you!"

Casting Imprisonment on the producers would probably work ;)

Doesn't that cause them to get trapped far beneath the earth?

Yep, although I'm sure they can CLUAConsole:CreateItem("") some Freedom scrolls for themselves once they've finished their work :p

Yeah, but only once per rest. MAKE IT COUNT!

Yeah, we're well aware you guys are extremely busy, but we don't even need any amount of elaboration or fancy full-fledged choreographed and polished update or anything. Just a little "Hey guys, It's What's New Wednesday!, and here's What's New!:

Loading taking too long. Stop. Toiling diligently. Stop. New build out ASAP."

Talking of updates.
I love how you are answering to every post in the bugs support forum, and I believe it's an incentive to beta testers.

Still, a small suggestion. A colored dot (or a color blind friendly symbol) near the thread title could tell the readers the status of the issue (e.g. green=reported, red=need extra data, yellow=wtf why would you do that).

I hope this coming new build will have bigger improvements.

 

 

Update once a week or at least every ten days would be cool. 

 

Thanks for the update.

Stop being an enabler Sensuki!

If you make it sound like you expect it to take some extra time they'll just take the day off today!

A windowless basement would suffice.  :devil:
