**As of right now **THIS IS NOT AN ENGINE! IT’S A GAME “Canvas”!
What is a closed release?
Basically I’m only releasing it to people who think they can really use it. If you want it, pm me what asking for it and what you will use it for.
Why closed release?
It’s not really “Done” there’s a lot of features I plan on updating and the current version is NOT for your everyday eclipsian. It requires some pretty hardcore setup and just getting the maps rolling can kinda be a pain in the ass.
Why release it if it’s not done?
There’s a lot of shizz to do forthis and those who are going to use it I have a deal to help me debug and make a few features better and see how others fix their issues.
What does this release entail?

DO NOT REDISTRIBUTE WITHOUT ASKING ME FIRST!
There is to be no “Custom Versions” of my work. If you would like to release your features in my work, send your feature’s code to me I will be happy to evaluate, test, and add it to the engine if It passes an inspection.
How can I get this release?
Private message me asking me for OpenGypsy. Give me some details about your project, I don’t care for a 1000 word storyline, what I want to know is how motivated you are to working with my engine and that you have the skills to understand how to use it.

No, however if you plan on using my software, I do ask that if you find any bugs or make any fixes or have any cool features you don’t mind others using, please send them to me it makes the final production SOooo much faster and SOooo much less work for me.
