Awesome! Look forward to it.

There is no reason to promote the game yet. When it's done, sure. Right now though, hold your horses.

Problem with huge amount of players playing at the same time is that...well game isn't really fit to that. Sure Europe usually has ok ping, but I remember Accosta's unkillable lag storms or Hedron's 500ping TC Sniper times. If game can't support people from other continents we are fucked.
What we hope is that the new engine will be able to handle bigger amounts far better, especially with so many things restructured and 64-bit system.

With all this being said. Is there an idea of the time frame the developers believe they will have things prepared for an official wipe date?
When it's done!  We have open betas and tech demos planned. But the official date will not be announced until we're sure it's done and ready.
This will be the final wipe. We have to ensure that gameplay and game will be set in stone.

3D

The models are rendered down and pixelated. The animations are constrained to 24 FPS to keep the old school feels.
A good example of what our aim would be pretty much what Factorio did with their own 3d.

Same things happen here. We're 'processing' the 3d to give them sprite feel to make them fit.

That's how the original models were developed too, then rendered into a 2d format.

So work with Shaders, Textures, adjustments will get us as close to the original. I think we already have surpassed Fallout 2 models: Myron, Vic, they all have an awkward rubbery 3d look in comparison to Fallout 1, despite being frms.

Spoiler




Down here you can find one of the original topics and screenshots, to see what we begun to work with and compare that to our current result.

And from here we can only get better, the models are okay, thing what makes them feel 'falloutish' is post-processing.

And yes, Pillars of Eternity team does Amazing job of blending 2d and 3d, creating an amazing detail.
The difference is we're not a professional game development team with 30+ people in just art design doing full week shift on graphics. But just 3 guys with some helping hands from time to time, which means redoing 14,000+ art assets for scenery is something that would take too much time and effort compared to gain.

130-180 ping isn't all that bad for North Americans. Latency is another thing.  I used to play 220 ping in TF2 and still managed. As long the server doesn't get sent to Luxembourg.

Well guys when its gona come to game promo every helping hand is extremely welcome so together we can build new epic start for all of us.
About ping, cant workaround things we cannot overcome, server is location in Europe and it will be, sadly nothing else can be done, but you know this for sure already.
Only good thing is that our current server has some better performance than previous one, maybe it will have some positive impact.

I remember BlueDrake42 at one point playing fallout online. He has a pretty big community and one that likes more hardcore games as well.

about advertising - we are open for any cooperation and yes we are planing to put as much effort in advertising as it is possible, last session we broke every fonline game record with 550+ players playing at the same time, we are hoping to beat it.

With all this being said. Is there an idea of the time frame the developers believe they will have things prepared for an official wipe date?

Do the Developers intend to advertise Season 4 with the intent to bring many new players? If yes, can those ideas be shared? I know that with enough money summed up it is possible to sponsor a small time youtubers with 100-200k subscribers to advertise it for a minute.

Share your thoughts?
