You guys aren't forgotten, and the fanbase won't stop talking about you compared to D:U.
Any traffic this website gets, the first thing fans will see is old information and whatnot.

Gotta keep this place looking spic and span, right?

You're right, and our website needs to be redesigned and reopened, but I'm planning all of this for right before the release, to drive the hype train. NOW we have a game to finish. I spent all day fixing bugs and finishing HUD stuff, and I wanna be done with it before doing webdesign. (This is not a call for a webdesigner.)

We'll try and keep in touch with the crowd on Facebook and on here, and hopefully more frequent updates. I bet Seb can show some of the work in progress as he builds the Eclipse, the final piece of the puzzle.

Pretty exciting Proving Grounds is finally going to happen.
And being the first to get a public release out the door is a huge leg up on the competition. :D

Well, actually, I was referring heavily to the "Reviving 6DoF in Unreal Engine 3!" bit.

I mean, for anyone new to this game, it looks like we're an entire generation behind D:U.

That's a bad thing.

It would also be nice to see a SolC logo at the top of the forum instead of the phpBB logo. Especially since it's a forum home link.

I assume the main page for this site & forums will have a redirect setup prior to
the actual movement/deletion? So most any new followers can get into PG? :?:

Why would we delete this forum? We'll redecorate and clean up for the masses, but deleting it would be a shame.

It'd be more logical to archive this forum, and then make a new one after even just the Proving Grounds release, just because there's SO MUCH development stuff and questions about what might be, that a noob would be confused.

Plus, it already feels like there's a strong community here, which could push away new arrivals. Starting fresh would give everyone an equal chance to become popular or whatever. Eh, either way, the game is more important no matter what.
