If security wasnt so tight (sorry but the ppl that we have had in on the MOD previously are just there to play it with no commitment to perfecting it) I'd employ you for ur fish (dont perverse) as it made me laugh lol.
Right now we are ironing out all the bugs before production continues, else the final thing will be highly unstable.
Future Tense is intended to be released standalone.
No Future Tense 1.93837873823 patch or whatever, Simply Future Tense 1.0 n thats it.
Same for FT2 and FT3 - it is a 'Tense Trilogy' afterall.
Unfortunatly I'm a bit of a 'perfectionist' when it comes to my creativity. Which okay can be a restriction on patience, but it sure as hell guarentees a great game
. Which is why so much effort has been made to make the game unique, both in terms of look, feel and the thrill you get when playing it, and why so much effort has been put in to try and balance and set Future Tense in the Trek Universe, grounding it to canon.
Future Tense wont be available to the public until its released. We 'may' get a public Beta tester off the forum when its done, just to see their opinion, could be a competition to design something for FT2. First Place is first player to play FT1 and that unit appears in FT2 with the 2 runners up also being created, I dunno. To early to speculate but yeah, no Beta requests UNLESS you have modding experience you can use. If you DO, let me know and I'll put you on the tally system (submit 20 Files to Future Tense to get full beta access) that system is inplace, simply because as I say, people in the past have joined the team, played it once or twice, said it was okay, then fall off the Internet.
Though the plus side of new members such as the recent addition of Mr. Vulcan who has completly done away with the old GUI (see screenshots) production accelerates and becomes more and more impressive to look at
I'd just like to finish by saying thanks for being so patient.
There are 4 more Romulan ships to be added to Future Tense. Once done production will start on getting the Unicomplex into Future Tense. The Borg ships I'd hazard are about half way. Then it's time to put the new AI to some serious testing....
Will keep you apprised as production continues as normal. But I think its a shorefire guarentee it'll release in 2007
