  1. The symbols on the THMPR are all just concept art. I want to have a decal system in the game and you can put what you want. Including the Stars and Stripes. I'm also looking at classic pinup art for frames, for example.

    I'm not a PC person, so we're not going to tip toe around and try not to offend anyone with a decal. Instead, I'm looking at options where customers can simply "mute the look" of anything they find offends them. So you could turn off decals for anything you don't like seeing, for example, and you will get decal-less version of a frame. Same for certain outfits on characters, which would just set that character to its default look. Personally I believe such filtering should be under user control and not game censorship.

  3. Signatures have new limits for amount of text (140 chars) and limits on links and images (1 each).

    Hopefully this will keep signatures reasonable.

  5. I'm sure many of you have noticed we have here this nice feature Firefall and many other forums have disabled > Signatures. Content appended to your every post. They have no rules as of now, you can place there text, links, images whatever you want.

    However and I'd like to stress this out, If all members here know how to utilize this feature properly without being disruptive, maybe we can keep this feature enabled. But if it's abused, used for marketing purposes and inappropriate large content that is distracting and disrupting to conversation, you can be sure it will be eventually disabled, permanently.

    For example: If you have information about yourself, please weight if it's worth having it appended to every single post of yours.
    What you can do instead: Post info about yourself in the about box, you can then put just a link inside signature to your about page, like > about me

    I don't want to write down rules or anything (and I'm not in the position to do so), just appeal to your common sense when making your signature. Ask yourself, if I have 5 posts on a single page, isn't my repeating signature getting in the way of important content?

    Thank you o/

  7. Yep, the idea is to crowdfund in in small, deliverable sections that demonstrate progress and build confidence over time. Its actually identical to how publishers to it. Publishers pay every month or two, and only if the work has progressed to a satisfactory degree. Except now, the gamers are acting in this role.

    Also its true, we have no game yet. We didn't think we'd get this far, this fast. You guys all took us by surprise. What started as a petition to gauge interest has, in less than 30 days, resulted in the community demanding and funding a website, top tier forums with mods, and full concept art for the key resource encounter (player, frame, T.H.M.P.R., alien enemy).

    So now we're working on the next phase. With the demand I'm seeing, I'm happy to put another milestone of work into the game design and more concrete explanations of how we will translate the key concepts of Firefall into tangible things in Ember. This won't happen overnight, but with our step by step funding and growing of interest and the community, I'm beginning to think we can get there.

  9. Yes many companies do make you sign such clause, but it's only relevant up to point you are employed there and very little after. Most of the "free world" guarantees that nobody can control where you can and can't work by constitution, which overrules anything you may or may not signed. Only thing they can use it for is to fire you or attempt to sue you for damages (which resulted from you sharing internal information with competition).
