@mindmurderer - We think that in about 2-3 weeks we will start working on the last part - network layer - which is needed for us to release playable game. How much time those test will last? We don't know. Probably 2-3 months. During pre-alpha test we will release new video with official Alpha release date. Then all should go much faster, to Beta and Full version.
ok you guys are doing a lot of good work, but I have to say you should really since its almost 2 1/2 years past the kickstarter time frame you should really give us something tangible to see.
some of us paid for free dlc and above and if its taking this long for the base game what was the point/ it seems like you are trying to jam everything into the release where almost every other kickstarter project that was launched at the same time is at least in Early Access on steam, at least people have something tangible instead of feeling stiffed.
you should really consider giving something for people to tinker with at least a demo or anything to see some sort of progress.
@Aerouge - soon there should be an new update. We don't want to post update in middle of work. If you need a little more info what we are doing right now, take a look here:
@Fiachra Mac Aodha - We don't think that our game is redundant. It's very different from MoO:Cts
Two years and two Kickstarters past the original stated completion date without even an alpha release. This project should be renamed "ZERO"
This game was supposed to continue the legacy of Master of Orion 2, since the series had appeared to die with the disastrous MOO3. Master of Orion: Conquer the Stars just went into early access, making MORE pretty much redundant.
This project has the wrong name, it should be renamed "LESS"
Any updates on the project? Christmas was 2 months ago :-)
Thanks for the response IdeaLcenter - some blocked IP addresses include 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124.
We don't block anything. Maybe it's our host provider company? We will check it. Thank you for this info AstraWanderer.
I'm seeing the same problem as Wai Sing Lee has reported - www.morethegame.com not responding to connection attempts. It seems you are blocking access to Tor network users which includes those who use it to protect their online privacy. Please reconsider this policy.
Strange indeed. I'll write a PM to you about that.
Very odd, the Opera browser is actually a new install so it does not have any history in its cache. The error is the same across all three browsers...connection timed out. Must be something going on with my system then or with my VPN service.
Maybe try to completly refresh/reload webpage (CTRL+F5) or clear your browser cache if you can. If problem still exist you may send us your browser and system info on our support e-mail.
We had some problems in the beginning of october with our website, but it was problems at our web server provider. From this time I didn't receive any signals that something is wrong.
@IdeaLCenter, I don't know what is going on then. The site does not work on my PC and I tried with three different browsers. Normally, it works fine. I then tried it on my smartphone using Chrome and the site pops up fine. Both the PC and smartphone are using the same router (ie. Internet service).
Is anyone else having this problem?
@Wai Sing Lee - our website http://www.morethegame.com is working all the time. It's probably something with your connection or other reason.
This is interesting. The MORE game website is down and has been down for over a day now. C'mon...in this day and age it's not that hard to keep a site up and running!
I completely agree, 2 Kickstarters and more than 2 years after the estimated completion date, key elements have yet to be implemented, and this game is nowhere near completion. Idealcenter has blantantly lied to backers about the state of this game from the beginning. I have no expectations of this game ever being completed, and I know it would be futile to ask for a refund. I would like to ask everyone to complain about this project to Kickstarter in hopes of preventing Idealcenter from launching a third Kickstarter.
Folks, make sure to read Part 2 of the interview. We will not get a playable game for (in my estimation) another two years at least! Why? Because IdeaLcenter will not work on the game's AI until after the beta release. So, we go through pre-Alpha, Alpha, and Beta with a zombie of a game.
Even the interviewer was surprised at this approach of doing the AI.
I really wish I could just get a refund at this point.
Good to hear something from you, thank you :)
We aren't delaying anything. Creating a good game takes time. Take a look at creator of Star Citizen or other big games. They have milions, big team and they are creating games for few years. We don't have big budget, we are very small team but with every month we move forward. We could give you bad game much sooner, but we didn't want to do that.
Soon we will start our pre-alpha multiplayer tests. We hope to give you Alpha in the end of the year. Also in the end of September there will be a Q&A with Nasrog from www.explorminate4x.com who saw our game live presentation :)
Soon we will post update, and new website. So stay tuned!
I feel like this company has taken our money and is just delaying the process until some time limit runs out. It has been over a year and a half after we were supposed to get this even. I believe that Kickstarter needs to look into this seriously and possibly defund unless they can provide some proof of work instead of just Concept
We'll try to post more updates in upcoming months, but we don't want to make updates when we are still working on something.
Great work you've done! And thanks for bringing us updates every few months so we know the project is still progressing :)
"this weekend or just after it" is now in the past for some time. Any news?
@Ryan Saige - We was working recently on auto space battles and ground combat. More info in update soon. We want to release it when we will finish this part of game. It should be this weekend or just after it.
So what is the progress on this game? Seems like it's been a while since I've heard anything, with no news of a release coming.
@mikebert - Update will be coming this week.
So where are the updates on your progress? Where is the beta version that was supposed to be available a year and a half ago?
@mikebert - Something what is called "Master of Orion" doesn't need to be a truly MoO successor. Do you remember MoO3 ? ;) And we are working everyday with M.O.R.E.
Hey IdeaLcenter, please give me a refund, tired of waiting for something that will never come, you are already obsolete
IdeaLcenter, according to your second campaign, you were supposed to have the Alpha ready by Q1 of this year. Judging by the list of items that you are working on, I don't believe that the Alpha will even be ready for a Q2 release.
Well, hey, thanks for FINALLY releasing an update. The problem that I have is that is that you can't even give us a firm date for an ALPHA version, so when can those of us who pledged for the FULL version (delivery estimate December 2013) expect to receive something?
@Charles Gulotta - We've post new update just now.
still no update? When can we expect to see something!
We are sorry that our last update is not there yet. We planned to post it earlier, but we want to to finish big part of our game before posting it - and we are very close now.
If you need to have more frequent info, please visit our forum topic:
Thanks for the big Friday update. Over one year past your stated release date and still no beta, and very few updates. When are you planning on launching your third Kickstarter?
Yes, we want to post update this week. I hope we can do it on Friday.
Hey guys, any news? The last update was long ago!
While this is taking a long time, I am ok with it. I'd rather have something good than something fast.
Estimated delivery: Dec 2013????? or was it suppose to be 2015????
@JdH - yes of course, we will be informing backers from both of our campaign about progress on M.O.R.E. Now there may be few more additional updates related to 2nd Kick campaign, but after them, those updates will be the same.
I expect you to provide us one time backers with the same text updates if they are relevant to us. I don't want to have to look if you made an update for your second ks that might be interesting to me.
Hello Shawn. In this case, please send us a message with your nickname which you want to have in M.O.R.E. universe by e-mail or private message here. We will add it to our database and you'll be able to reset your password and login into your account.
Hi, when I try to reset my password I get the error "nickname field cannot be empty." I want to check if I named my star. I don't think I did.
We've updated our KS2 campaign with new text informations about galaxies and rewards. We don't want to spam our backers e-mail, so we've decided to send you information only about video updates.
@Eivind. It's huge game, and we want to create good game. Anyway, we are moving forward with progress of our game.
More delay, yay
