|Just be patient everyone. Alex will release Noctis Nova eventually. The more time he takes to complete his long awaited project, the better. Besides, you still have a forum to have fun with. I personally did not join this community just for NV. In fact, I have never actually seen a more crazy and insane, yet just plain fun forum, than Anywherebb. When I joined the community some time in December of 2004, or January of 2005, as MicMac, I knew I was not wasting my time. Although I have not contributed very much to this forum (if anything at all), I have at least enjoyed nearly every minute of it. Well, almost. As for Noctis, don't push it any further, please. Just keep several important points in mind. First, one person is working on this fifth release of Noctis. His name is Alex. Just like the rest of us, Alex happens to have something called a life. When you mix life with work, you lose time. When one person dedicates more time to their long awaited project, it is more likely to turn out better in the end. The second point is for those of you who think the source code for NV should be released immediately. You know who you are, and I want you to remember something. I have heard many people say that Noctis (basically any version) is a very high quality simulator/game/product/whatever. This is true. I have also heard you say that Noctis is probably one of, if not, the best simulator/game/product/whatever. This is also true. I doubt any one will disagree. Think of some of the reviews on sights like Home of the Underdogs and Game Hippo. Everyone loved it. Now, do something for yourself. Read the first sentence of the first point above. If you are lost, I will quote it here - "one person is working on this fifth release of Noctis." Do you understand what I am saying? If Alex is so good at creating such a wonderful thing, do you honestly think it would turn out just as good if many people attempted to work on this one project? I don't think so. Look at todays gaming industry for example. Many of todays block buster games require a staff of over one hundred people. Some of these big games can turn out horrible because they are rushed to store shelves because of a deadline. In addition, they don't have enough creativity or imagination dedicated to them because of such a large staff. By the way, I will not, and absolutely refuse to provide any examples of games. I am just giving a brief example of what could happen to NV if it were released as a public project. I am very afraid it would have to many people poking their own big ideas into it, creating problems, errors, and conflicts. Yes most people are very creative, and we are all able to make suggestions, but many of those wonderful ideas won't work if the lines of code don't mix together properly. Can we all just PLEASE stop asking about the release of Noctis? I know all of us are very anxious, but we should not get our hopes up to high. Who knows, Noctis might not turn out the way we expect in the end after all. And if we keep burdening the creator any longer, that might just be the ending we receive. Totally unexpected, and not what we were hoping for.|
