Rubbish not a patch on the first one, teenager save the world.
What a wasted opportunity!!! Yes, the first one is still great, the second not so!!
Welcome back pilot!!!! 😀 😀 😀
I forgot not everyone lives in the U.S. or is familiar with Military statutes and limitations. In the U.S. all jet powered fighter/strike aircraft (like my beloved F-16.) can only be operated by qualified individuals chosen by the Air-Force. One of their non-negotiable limits is color blindness. I can never even qualify for training let alone operate one. Its impossible. A limit that cannot be overcome within my lifetime. (There are age requirements as well.)
Same here, since every NATO member follows the same guidelines concerning training in combat fighters. I was mistakenly diagnosed with short-sightedness, so my career in Air Force was also over, before it could even start!!!! 😀 😀 😀 😀 Well, I can still boot up my favourite combat flying sim, even if my eyesight is not what it was used to be!!!
I actually have no idea how that works. Is the royal family over the entire Kingdom, or just England? I know Scotland and Ireland each have their own respective royal families
There is only one royal family for the entire Commonwealth (including Australia and Canada, I think).
Brother or Comrade in Arms? 😀 😀
Brother or Comrade in Arms? 😀 😀
Still sitting in my backlog!! Star Contorl Origins has scratched this particular itch for me!!
It’s in the far future!!!!! On the other hand, I still haven’t seen anything mentioned about Ubisoft’s Starlink!!!
Good for you Captain Kal. 🙂
You keep showing those young wippersnappers that there can only be one! o7
Amen to that, brother!!!!! 😆 😆 I raise my fictional glass, in salute!!!!! 😀 😀
Now I’m getting too old to enlist so even if those color blind glasses do work. Its over. I wanted so much from life when I was young.
Never say never!!! I ‘ve started practicing fencing with medieval swords (HEMA Longsword ) a couple of years ago. I am nearly 50 years old now, and many times I have kicked a 20 something’s butt in a tournament 😀 😀 😀 😀 !! (And many times I had my butt kicked by a twenty something, but that’s normal!!!!! 😀 😀 😀 :D). Being 50 year old, is one my best times in my life, for creative activities!!!
There goes the neighborhood. Without commenting further:

It is with a heart of lead that I write this announcement. Not in my darkest nightmares did I expect this day to ever come, but circumstances have reached a point that even my endless optimism can no longer rectify. I can not finish Limit Theory.
After six years, I am finally at the end of my means. Financially, I am beyond the initial investment and have exhausted most of my personal savings. But significantly more troubling is that I am entirely out of energy — emotionally, mentally, even physically. Every year that passes sees me becoming more desperate to make good on the dream with which you all entrusted me, but each such year I grow less and less capable of doing so as my mindset falls further away from that bright, beautiful hope that powered me from the beginning. I am not what I once was.
Despite what felt like an incredible amount of progress in the last year alone, Limit Theory remains frighteningly far from feature completion. It is my own fault, for having underestimated at every turn the amount of work that goes into such a creation. It is my own fault, for having overestimated my own cognitive resilience and for believing that no number of setbacks would ever inhibit my ability to bring a passion project to life.
I don’t know how to make this right. For years now, I’ve been running on pure loyalty to you all — it has been quite a long time, if I’m honest, since I was actually working from a place of inspiration — yet even with the purest of intentions and the deepest desire to honor my commitment, I find myself unable to bring about miracles. No matter how hard I try, it’s not enough to bring LT to fruition, and this pattern of failure has evicted all self-confidence and hope from my mind, leaving only doubt, anxiety, and despair. Some days I think to myself “how absurd that a game should make me feel this way,” and I realize just how unfit I have become to build a source of joy. I wanted so, so badly to make you all proud. To bring you all joy. There are no words to properly convey how sorry I am that I have failed you all.
I imagine I could go on and on with this gushing of negativity — the years have left me with no shortage of it. But I don’t think much good will come of it. Those of you who have followed the project closely, you already know how much I have put into it; how I have given 110% of myself. Trying isn’t the same as doing, so I don’t expect any thanks for it, but I hope you all do know just how hard I’ve tried. I’ve simply got nothing more to give.
So, what now?
Well, I will prepare the source code for release. It’s not a working game, and in my frenzy to get things working I’ve left huge swaths of code in a half-refactored or half-complete state. But releasing it is the least I can do. I don’t imagine it will be of any use to anyone, other than as a monument to a failed dream. Perhaps those who are interested in game engines will glean a thing or two from the engine, as it is a fairly solid piece of engineering, much more solid than the Lua game code.
For the moment, though, I wanted to get this off my chest as soon as possible. It has been the most painful, difficult decision of my life, and I’m sure that there will be no shortage of blowback. But I simply cannot continue to destroy myself in search of a feat of which I am not capable. When I began this project, I felt that anything was possible. Here now, at the end, I must swallow the painful reality that: I, too, am human. I am limited by time, I am limited by finances, and I am limited by mental & emotional stamina.
One last time, I would like to thank everyone who contributed. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for believing in Limit Theory. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to try for something wonderful. One last time, I am so sincerely sorry for having let you down. I hope, at the very least, that some of you have enjoyed the ride as I’ve pitted my brain over the years against one challenge after the next.
I’ll be in touch when I have readied the source code for release.
It seems interesting. I will wait and see, how it turns out.September 15, 2018 at 12:51 pm in reply to: How about some sort of “Recently updated threads” link? #111519
I second smcameron’s request!!!
That’s a surprise. I still have a demo of the 3d game, based on the fading suns universe, they were going to publish!! And I am still playing Emperor of the Fading Suns, from time to time!!!
buon viaggio to your father!! My deepest condolences!!!
I will try to build it, just for the fun of it!!!!
There is a sale on Steam -50% of the usual price, if you are interested!!
If I knew that all these console like exclusives were coming I probably wouldn’t have spent $700 on my gfx card for my pc and picked up a mid tier and a PS4 🙂
I disagree. You have access to a vast selection of cheap PC games, and your beefy card means, that you will enjoy them for many years to come. (I am still using an AMD R9 290 from 2015, with my Ryzen 1700x). With a PC/PS4 combination you have access to nearly all the new games. So even the slim version of PS4 will be fine for the exclusive games.
They are shielded from outer space, with a 2 km thick layer of ice. And many complex earth organisms thrive in below zero temperatures. So these two moons are prime candidates for finding extra terrestrial life (even complex one)!!
PS4 is a very good console, with some very unique games. You should go straight for the Pro version, even if you intend to play on a 1080p resolution.
On the E3 front, Starfield and Starlink, were the games I was interested in!! Especially in the case of of Starlink, a.k.a Skylanders in Space.
