Itms Posted August 31, 2014 Report Share Posted August 31, 2014 I'd like to support the proposition "Alpha XVII Quercus" for several reasons.1) Well, it's a word beginning by Q and I really think we've covered up the wide majority of possibilities. Latin is, as said before, the only language with Qs so we're kinda stuck. Nobody proposed Quirinus, a really important Roman god, but I don't see a reason with we'd choose that.Now for the serious thoughts 2) I like the image of stability and maturity of this tree. A17 will be essentially a bugfix release, so I think that fits pretty well.You will say: "wut? a bugfix release? there were a ton of new features!", so what I mean is that we don't have a central huge feature (like internationalization for a16). I don't say there is nothing new in a17, all the contrary.On the other hand, since a16 release, the modding activity has been increasing dramatically and for this reason the mod selector will be realeased in a17. So, I think mods are important. Thus...3) ... I also like the image of the tree with a trunk which grows and allows branches to develop. I find it really interesting to compare that to the development of our game, which now allows an active community of modders to make the gamers' experience even richer.Would you agree with me about all this? 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
