Alpha 0.6 soon?
« on: June 11, 2013, 08:09:30 PM »

I don't hang around these forums much and the search function didn't turn anything up, so alpha 0.6 was estimated to be "a couple weeks" away at the time of release of alpha 0.55 three weeks ago. Has there been any new estimates made or are they just running with "when it's done"?

If all goes well...mid June at the latest.
But just replace all time frames with "when it's ready".

I am aware of that thread but I'm afraid that I am not well-versed enough in programming to know the significance of merging code :(

It'll be out when it's ready, haha. But no, it should be soon, merging happens when people start uploading code into the main game SVN and have to make sure it works with other people's codes. So we're close now. The last 3 things still holding up are NPC AI, new missions, and terrain (which I'm working on), since all of them are getting a lot of changes and additions.

Wow an indie game that uses source control....even AAA games do not do that!

So tired of playing old bugs fixed before and broke in new patches in other leaky sandboxes....all because a dev had a private copy for his new feature and ignored all the bug fixes the other dev dealing with live already fixed.

Just keep plugging away at it Zifei we don't mind ignoring you guys to let you all work as much as you can but a bone every once in a while isn't bad to let us know what is holding you up and gives us a sneak peak at what you should have already done by now seeing as you said the "last three things still holding up" lets us go browse the 0.6 release list so we can be extra excited to jump in once 0.6 is ready and rolling.

Prepare yourself Plasson... 8) Stockpile food, energydrinks and Soda. Sleep while you can... Get phonenumber to takeout restaurants... Take a shower and a shave(?), who nows when that will happen after the release  ;D And prepare your friends so they understand that you're not in any danger or sick  ;)

I'm looking forward to building a fort that crosses the ravine or a castle built into a cliff side. The possibilities are endless!

Will 0.6 be a steam key or will that be at a later date ? Just wondering how they'll do it so that 0.6 is exclusive ?
