Update #59

Silent Running

Hail to you our patiently waiting backers! You may have noticed that it's been a few weeks since our last update. Never fear, the work has been clipping along at a good pace in the background. As a result we have a few news items to share with you. (We're going to be posting the same updates to both campaigns from now on. So you veteran backers may want to turn off one of the news feeds to keep from getting “repeated” updates).  

Surveys

As most of the veterans almost certainly know we've sent out the first batch of rewards surveys. The “rewards situation” for vets is a little complex so we wanted to give you guys a brief overview of how it works. Veteran backers are able to combine the total amount they pledged in the first campaign, the second campaign, and PayPal in order to select their reward and add-ons. If you have any questions please contact us. We will be very happy to help you get your rewards lined up. (We know it can be confusing.) 

You non-veteran backers shouldn't have too long to wait before we get your surveys out to you. There's just a lot to do and we have to do it step by step.  

World Map

As you can see from the screenshot above progress is being made on the World Map. It's not where we want it to be yet, but it's getting there day by day. We wanted to improve the look of Worlds of Magic and that's exactly what we're doing. We feel confident that you're really going to like the look of it when we finally get it in your hands.

Playable Alpha

Work toward the playable alpha is continuing day by day. A number of GUIs have been put together for managing your heroes and their inventories, browsing through your armies in the field, controlling your mana income and expenditures, etc. A lot of “background mechanics” work is also in progress. The backer's forum is filled with discussions on spells, terrain bonuses, food production, unrest, building trees, etc, etc, etc. We are filling in all the little blanks that stand between us and the full alpha. If you haven't already, please feel free to come and join us. Backer feedback is really helping make WoM something special.

Expect to hear more from us soon. As always guys, we offer you our deep and sincere thanks!

      Alpha pledge means that you are receiving immediate access to the Alpha.
      However we are aware that we might be looking for some specific hardware combination to test the performance, and the we will be asking those who are willing to take a part in Alpha.

      In the survey you were also asking wether or not we're interested in participating in the Alpha. Does this mean that those that did not pledge for it or have appropriate pledge level may be allowed to access the alpha. Because why ask when you already had the alpha pledge option (for 10$ no less)...? If I can get alpha access without the pledge, I rather have something else for the 10$ I invested in it. Oh and how do you plan to handle the alpha/beta? Will you be handling it thru your own site or Steam (that I don't use so again my money for alpha access would be wasted)? There was pretty terrible typo in the part you (I assume) wanted to ask how much we pledged in 2nd KS or maybe you wanted to ask if we pledged more than 1$? Hopefully posting the 2nd KS pledge amount was the correct answer (well, technically it answers both questions). Anyway, looking forward to alpha release!

      The fact is that you can do either. You can list all the add-ons now or wait until we send out the next survey. It's up to you. Either way, we're going to make sure you get what you pledged for.

      I have to admit that now I'm more confused by the survey than I was before. If we pledged for both campaigns, were we supposed to list all the add-ons we purchased across both of them in this survey result? Or just the add-ons we purchased during this campaign, and we'll be asked about others when surveys go out for the second campaign later?

      We'll be taking feedback on the GUI throughout the process. You can expect some changes before the end.

      there also some very good screen like the army list from original MoM that could be great to follow

      I see we mirror HoMM5/6 Interface instead of MoM one. While I personally much prefer MoM interface, I would suggest quick city icons to be added in the middle if the UI were to be maintained. HoMM5 have lots of criticism when they change the UI from HoMM3 resulting too many clicks when they finally added the quick city icons at later expansion.
