As you may see the title and how provoking it may seem, I have some good reasons for what i am adding, as there are many valid reasons why i feel this way and why i feel as though the plan for Eclipse V Cancel was not just the worst choice made but also the choice of changing how things are done over the curb without discussing and planning this with the community.
Before i start, i would like to add that though each to there own opinions and some not all choices were considered good choices that were made with the changes, please bear in mind that what i am writing is from my own accord and no backing of sorts from other members that feel the same way unless they agree to what is said.
A Special Request to all members reading this, if you would be as kind as to avoid spamming this Thread with Negativity, though i feel your responses have valid reason for what you state and your opinions should also be heard, i employ you to please keep it to yourselves, thank you.
Cancel of Eclipse V:
This is the biggest issue, and to be honest i don’t really personally care about the other reasons, but from a business perspective making one thing a issue requires making all of it a issue, as the chain of command flows the same as the chain of problems.
After Eclipse V was show reeled on youtube and the promise of it coming out and planing, including the way it would function, had fantastic ideals and plans for the future. Adding content Blocks for different Sectors and simply adding them as mentioned was a Unique add-on including the simple way of placing multiple objects and changes to terrain including the LIVE Changes (Perfection).
Based on Eclipse V which i was waiting a very long time for, i planned out a strategy for development for an upcoming game i wanted to work on for my business, especially that it had been said it was available for mobile platforms as well, regardless as you may say, you reap what you sow and that i should have waited for it to be released first is unfortunately a true story. However that also goes for suddenly canceling the project.
Though you may not realize but without proper notice so late in the stage of development, canceling the project, royally screwed my future plans for my development, because of this i need to find a new engine and a new development team to build which will cost me a hell of a lot of money… what i had planned for my game, that i initially had planned based on Eclipse V features.
I understand, taking over the website and business is one thing, but this will leave you with its problems as well, making the choice of cancel in staid of continue or at least the upcoming development having the features it advertised, if not then i stand firmly with what i am saying.
This was a very bad choice to make on a business perspective, though it’s possible that only i am complaining, what does the voice of just one person matter? But it does matter, it’s a real issue.
As the saying goes, an army may fight a war but one man may defeat a war with strategy.
In any case, it’s very disappointing that this canceled i had high hopes for Eclipse V with the content blocks. I had great future plans with manipulating them, truly unfortunate…
In any case, i deliver no hate, no bad intent of ill will to the new owner or his developers, i hope further on this community grows and you have a fortunate new outcome, many of the ideals you have are fantastic, making it free for the public and all that, truly great to have such caring people to give it out free and open source.
