Thats my point, these things should have been prioritised and SD could have been released years and years ago. You and dan keep pushing the 'Why dont you do it' - because i dont want to do it? Im not the person that created a website based around soma and made the plan to actually create a long term server, i primarily would guess that Dan and Finito did all this because they WANT to, for Dans future career as far as im aware, im pretty sure all of the stuff he does for Soma is relevant to the degree he has just received.

As far as payment goes, I myself would be more than happy to even pay a subscription fee for soma, and i know atleast 6 people in real life, more over the internet, who wouldn't mind paying a £5.00 subscription fee to get a soma experience like we had back in the day on e-soma. Thats a Fudgesticking subscription fee, id be willing to pay that monthly, for this 2D isometric game, when a game like WoW costs only a few more pounds per month, as would others - if you get some vanity items ingame for sale, Dan could easily make a few £100's just from things like hair styles, weapon enchantment glows, things like guild housing as a premium feature, or even user interface things (The things dans been messing around with). Its simple business, it would literally be a shame NOT to implement these things, if for nothing more than to cover the cost of dan and finito's time investment into the project.

There are a lot of people currently working on Soma, none of them are in it for the money. The moment Soma becomes about money I will gaurentee it will die out or change so much you would never ever get the same value in memories. ESoma was ESoma, even without a lot of changes we can't replace those memories only make new ones with the tools we have (or make the tools in some cases).

If you feel like you can do a similar project, go ahead, go for it. I wish you good luck. Just don't blaim other people for not sacrificing the amount of free time you would. Also, untill proven otherwise I've yet to see someone better than the current guys working on it.

I myself will try my very best to add value to the soma community, what about you?


To be completely frank with you, you've gone from arse licking Dan with some minor points, to just being ignorant and rude for no reason other than the fact that what your saying is wrong. You'll find all this 'hard work' thats been put into the server will not be put to any good use when your entire community fucks off because of the lack of direction that SomaDev has. The only thing about your entire argument that irritates me is the fact you fail to acknowledge even a single truth in what im saying, the main one being your community has effectively given up on you.

Doesn't matter what i do or don't do to add value to the soma community, if it consists of 5 people (the developers).

You're telling me the concept of nostalgia and mostly the good memories sticking is false? Nice.
Hard work? I don't recall saying that. They spent the free time on soma whenever they want, purely from their own will and for the love of the game. It's not up to us to judge how much time they have to spend or even how they spend it.

Yes, Somadev has been going slow for years and most of the time Sylver didn't listen. This is mostly due to the fact that Finito still had to debug and build the extentions and many other things. As for Sylver, he doesn't respond well to orders, inpatience or bad wording. Which is fair, but frankly I have annoyed myself in the past. However, with enough patience, reminders and mature responces I did get him to do quite a few things and so did others. Either way he has to balance between people who want an instant wipe and people who want a good test server, which you too were bashing on. Also with the new team in place developer output has doubled.

Somadev isn't the only server out there with potential. My hopes at the moment are set on the PvP server. For the long term I'm still expecting Somadev in due time.

There are ways for non-developers to add value to the soma community. Examples for this are:
- learning and setting up your owns ervers
- the soma wiki initiative
- Soma podcasts

You have to install the client then add the test server patch and use the somadev launcher, not somagame or soma.exe. All working clients should be in the first post, otherwise post again and I'll see what i can do.

I may have mis-read your post but if your saying you can connect to the test client and not the main client then you haven't read through properly... The server is still in its test phase and there is no 'main' client just the test server... There will be no complete server untill thurther notice from isylver or finito, which will not be in the near future...

If I am correct then I saw you in tyt last night asking if your character would be reset once the main server is released. If ever... The answer to this is yes, your character will be wiped from the game and you will need to recreate a char and start again...

Hope this helps...
Awaiting a decent long term official server...

Servers been in development for the past 5 years. That is long term. People are tired/bored of it now, past it's prime due to lack of development.
