Ion Fury  "formerly Ion Maiden, launching August 15!"

User is offline   Mark 

#2971

Maybe in another 5-10 years when this current crop of modders have moved on and the community almost dies. Then someone can spark interest for a whole new generation of modders with their latest and greatest new editor. I can't see myself ever trying to learn a new editor after so many years on Mapster32.

I would prefer to keep patching on small tidbits of features and more importantly, get caught up on all the documentation.

It sounds like the Build Engine needs an open-source editor like that...

Why? Mapster32 already is open source. I'm sure it would be way less work to redo its interface than making a new editor from scratch.

Yeah, I would rather retrofit a new interface on top of Mapster32 than have an entirely new editor, tbh. There's a ton of special-purpose code in the editor already that would be a nightmare to reimplement and debug all over again.

I printed out the Build DOCs years ago when we first got the game. Enjoyed just messing around with it. I never ever did anything with CONs (outside of USER.CON edits) but it was so easy to pick up once you had all the controls and basic instructions right there in front of you. Also the ST, SE, and ZOO guide maps did wonders for showing you how to do specific things. Doom didn't come with any of that.

Also, I mentioned this before, but my dad, a pastor, was spearheading a new building project for our church at the time and used the blueprints to design the church in Duke3D with Build to show people how it would look. He initially bought a 3D House Designer program for Win95 but it was trash and he abandoned it for Duke3D when I suggested it. Duke3D/Build was so much more convincing and, honestly, smoother. I helped him with the sector effectors for the door effects and whatnot (I also put an atomic health in the baptismal tank XD).

Size of Ion Fury versus Half-Life.

Is Ion Fury one huge connected progression or does it split up like in Half-Life (like when you get knocked out and wake up somewhere else not directly connected to where you were)?

Actually dont answer that

If you are answering questions I'm damn curious to know what the multiplayer situation is? Deathmatch on day one? Any other modes? Will EDuke32 see client server soon? I'm trying to be patient I swear it!

I'm hoping for Capture the Randy. It's basically CTF but with a twist: there are two teams of GDF officers who have to capture Randy Pitchford for various crimes ha committed. You have to pick up Randy who spawns at the center of the map and you have to carry him to your team's jail cell but of course since Randy's a generally annoying person he slows down your movement and tries to obscure your vision while you're carrying him (and he's singing the bigot song of course). To counter this you can bitch slap him. The first team to capture Randy three times wins!

No, one of the boss fights in Ion Fury will be against a giant mecha chick named "Sandy Bitchford" and you have to blow her up. (joking)

Any chance we'll see the founder's edition back on sale?

Just had an email to finalise my order for the FE and figured while I was there that I'd throw some extra support and get the Big Box as well. Looking forward to seeing some old style big boxes.

I wonder if they'll let people buy cancelled pre orders. That would be awesome.

Just paid for my Founder's Edition. Excited for it, the game looks amazing. Just wish I'd been better prepared for it to come out of this paycheck.

Yeah man, I really hate this "pledge ahead of time, pay at a set time or you'll never have another chance to buy this" culture that is taking over games. Not everyone is made out of fucking money and can make a six month ahead of time frivolous financial decision. The timing of Sigil was especially heinous, yeah just swipe money from people during Christmas.

Agreed, granted I was also aching for cash when I preordered the Founder's Edition, but it'd have been nice to be prepared.

No. The good old days were when I could go to the local store and grab the game box from the shelf. :dukecigar:

But then they have to pay for logistics and packaging. Digital downloads clearly save money.


It MAKES money because they usually sell it for the same price as a retail package (obviously not the FE here) but without the overhead costs. Some people blame that on inflation, I just think that's a convenient excuse. Especially when indie games are making pennies on digital sales and Humble Bundles (if anything).

This has nothing to do with the conversation about pre-pre-ordering I know.

When the whole pre-order was started, we absolutely had no idea how well the game would even do/ sell / be received tbh.
This project was practically near death/cancellation quite a few times, only fuelled by a ragtag group of modders who refused to stop despite things looking pretty grim at times.
Big box was considered for a long time but even then it was very uncertain.

Maybe better handled next time but we're just really happy things turned out the way they did.
