Aeros Posted August 4, 2007 Report Share Posted August 4, 2007 Let truth be known, all of you forumers are supporting and helping 0AD grow simply by hanging out with us developers and making it fun to interact, not to mention many a great idea has been shared here. What makes us confident is the majority of the ideas we hear we have already though about and discussed in great detail, and furthermore that shows our community is running on the same frequency of thought about RTS games as us.We have had some longterm and slowly developing plans on how to improve our structure and our significance as an online developer, and well, in short I won't reveal too many details right now but we are planning a unique move to create an open (or atleast, more open) development community as a means to educate, give people opportunity they have always wanted, and in the longterm increase the quality of the game and increase the availible manpower WFG has.We always like to take a very prompt tone with the public (partly because we all speak independantly yet representively of WFG - anything we choose to say is on our own behalf but all of us staff know to keep a proffesional and unanimous tone with the public), but atleast in the sense of the community here the bonds are much closer, down to even chatting with some of you regularly on MSN. We're very appreciative of the small stake out we have going on here with our community and I really am thinking there are no cons to being more open with you guys and letting you know how we work, what our current issues and setbacks are (they are always there when something so complex as this is being done). We basically are in need of manpower, and this is a vital ingredient for the successful concoction of 0 A.D. to be completed - even to reach our goal of alpha - and that brings us back to this poll, I'm curious of the stance of our forum community. If I may step ahead a great couple of steps, yes involvement and the assistance of developing 0 A.D. will mean getting to see and "play" the game, for the rather severe tradeoff of seeing firsthand there is much work to do before being able to play and the game you imagine playing (and we imagine playing) when seeing our screenshots needs a big helping hand before it becomes that smooth crystaline package of RTS gameplay.
