    Fair enough. I'd say that was true later on, after Grummz left. Before that there was an internal struggle based on the design preferences of a couple opposing internal forces. For example red 5 decided to add gear decay in 2013, which was not a feature commonly requested by the community. In fact when a couple people requested it the larger community were against it. Though, once announced, it became an important feature for many while it remained disliked by many others.

    I really like a lot of what youre suggesting here. Though I am of the opinion that great variety of builds and deep customization can be achieved without the need for so many resource rarities.

    I'm not shy about being sex-positive. I think people know that about me. But anything like that will be optional and tasteful.

    Just about every forum for just about every game has a bunch of conflicting feedback. It's the nature of the beast.
    That isn't the source of the problem. It's a matter of cause verses symptom.
    When those in charge of development are clear and unified on the vision internally the outside feedback has a more measured impact. But when those in charge are split or at odds with each other on what to do then outside feedback can be very disorienting and lead to strange changes.

    EDIT: aaaaand grummz just made it abundantly clear that in house was where the issue was......heh. Ninja'd.

    To be honest, I had a hard time getting the upper mgt to go with my ideas. There was an internal struggle between doing something new (which is hard) and doing WoW with guns. You can see who won in the end.

    I was very much a proponent of being hands off at the time, and for the last year of FF dev I was away fighting The9 constantly on other issues.

    This time i'm going to remain on the ground level and shop floor and always be present to guide the vision on a daily basis. When we are small that's easy enough. If we get large that means hiring a President to run the business side of things so I can remain focused.

    New Update: HTTPS is from now on enforced, insecure HTTP is now forcefully redirected to secure channels.

    (And not just for forums but the entire domain.)

    Thank you. Many email hosting providers give option for 2-step verification, but at increased security you are also increasing complexity and potentially risk loosing access yourself. Of course most experienced IT users don't have problems, but it's something casual users don't do. So even though ideally everyone should be in control of their own security, we should also make every effort to help protect users who don't have such a strong grip.

    The Thumper will be more animated, shifting its drilling spot and pickup resources that pop out with its claw arm. The storage container starts off as the THMPR "landing shell" and re configures itself to be an anti-grav resource container that floats and is magnetically leashed to the THMPR as it travels back.
