    No your way don't make any sense. This has been answered so many times there is a actual recording of the answer lol.

    I quite happy with waiting a year for a17. Which will equal more content for us to play with. More excitement for in game. More bugs worked out. Etc etc.

    Releasing small updates is not only inefficient. It's cost ineffective and wastes the programmers time and efforts. It also will cause back lash in the modding community having to fix a mod every day. The last aforementioned is not as important as the rest of the statement above tho but still very relevant.

    You want small useless updates go play ark lol.

    The reason some things are broken like z smell is because it's a place holder. The way those were in the game were never gonna make it to gold. Or very far for that matter. And for those to become a system that will make it to gold other systems were needed to be implemented/worked on for a better system that will make gold to eventuate. Once those systems are implemented then the new systems for those that are currently not working will be implemented so it will work with the new systems etc.

    Again happy if we didn't see a17 til 2019 lol if need be.......

    The important thing to question on A17 public release date is comparing to GOT final season release.

    I got my money on the pimps releasing before GOT final season, so all good on the a17 timeline.

    When will the game be released?

    I got the game about a year ago and saw that it was in alpha. I thought, sweet! Not even beta, lots of new things can be added. The full release will be amazing. But-- I haven't seen much progress in this year. I love the game and I would rather have them make a quality game that takes a while. I don't want a set release date because that stresses out the developers and sometimes some things can't be incorporated in the full release because they didn't have enough time. I just want to know if they are half way done, 4/5 done, or 1/10 done. I really enjoy the game but I play it for a few weeks until there isn't anything left to do. Then I just wait a while until the next update where they add new things.

    Any estimation will help. Just curious

    Hopefully another 2-3 years. That'll be enough time to have say 4 more alphas, making it a nice A20 candidate going for a release schedule

    I'd say they are about 42 % done. Give or take 50 % or so.

    We should sticky this one and then move all requests and subsequent responses to this thread from the dev diary....

    Might be going by count of updates not by what is added in the individual update.

    One update in a year is not much.

    Several pages worth of changes and additions sure is huge progress.

    Tip for the OP:

    In steam use the beta tab in the game's properties to rollback to the earliest alpha builds to see how farthis game actually has come.

    We have work for you. Maybe you learn why a few larger updates are better than many small

    If this is Alpha 16,
    that means its 16% done... right?

    With mods, there's a missing decimal point. It should be about 0.016% done.
