So Luthier should just say he cant be bothered and not use the excuse of the holiday.
Though Chivas how long would it take to say a few words on other things? lets say how AI, FM, CEM or radio commands have changed in 4 months? it doesn't have to be much, just a idea of whats coming, 5 mins? 10?
If the idea is to release a graphics beta patch and then a full retail patch why hasnt Luthier told us this? the only people saying it are the people making things up to defend the developers.
Where has the roadmap for CLOD gone? we used to have one, though since we got it about 3 months after release almost nothing has been added or fixed apart from the sound and even that doesn't work 100% yet, 2 variants of 109 and not much else.
The idea is to keep us hanging on while they finish BOM.
In my considered opinion, what I've been making up is far more logical than what you've been making up.
The developer has been reticent for some time to tell us what they were trying to achieve, as it was always misinterpreted as a "Promise", and thrown back in their face. It would make them wonder if its worth the time to post. Personally I would also be very reticent to say much of anything if I were them, other than we're sorry the sim had to be released before it was finished and we are working very hard to finish it. I really don't see the point in repeating every week that we are testing the latest version of the patch, finding bugs, fixing bugs, then testing the next version of patch until its stable and relatively bug free. Of course that should be obvious, or I suppose it could be suggested that they have shut down the development, or have finished the patch, and are taking a holiday in a Black Sea villa, rolling in the huge monies generated from this genre.
