Well, i'll keep my fingers crossed!

Yeah, that's exactly the idea

Thanks but it might not sell any copies so that might not mean much, hehe.

Very nice! I can almost feel like I'm back in colonial times
Although, if this is going to go commercial, you may want to consider some re-textures at least of the citizens, else your player is going to be confused when 20 clones walk down the street

Other than that, swell job! Can't wait to see more

Ah, thank you that's very good of you to say. I would be happy to retexture if only I had some artistic ability - alas, I do not I've tried to time the pedestrians so you don't see doubles at any one time so hopefully that will help.

You're still going to realize that everyone looks the same
If i had those characters I would do the re-textures for you, but alas I do not and we're not supposed to pass the files around

Oh, I know you're right it's just something I'm going to have to live with. Plenty of games use repeating characters so...um...yeah, that's how i'm going to justify it. In all seriousness, when I started mucking about with FPSC it was to create an accurate recreation of a fort and I couldn't populate it at all until bond1 released those models. Before I saw the barbarian set, which doubles for Indians in this game, I figured I'd have to use invisible entities sniping the player to represent Indians hidden in the brush - so I am just relieved there are any characters here.

I think he did that again! Horror Mod is good with lots of cool features though I barely use a fraction of them at the moment.

Great news - I've finally finished the first episode of Pioneering!!! I've put alot of work into polishing the game up from its original form, taking on board all of the kind words and criticisms given to it over the past weeks. I've included a download for the new demo and I'm just compiling a cool new trailer now:

Well It was pretty fun
Kept me entertained until the end, leaving me wanting to play the rest

Bug Reports!
(Hey if this is going commercial you gotta get all the bugs out )
-I killed the guy right outside the mine , and he still talks to me lol.
-You can glitch outside of the boundaries by climbing the rock walls.
-Circular shadows left where you deleted characters (Probably can't fix that, just make sure they're deleted in less conspicous loctaions )
-There's grass and wooden wall that's phasing through the rock straight ahead from the mine exit.

All I can think of for now
Good luck with making the rest of the game!

Excellent - it's done it's job as a demo!

Quote: "Bug Reports!

By all means - these reports do really help - they've made the main level (which is locked in the demo) much, much more robust!

I knew someone would try and go GTA on my poor settlers! Actually thought I had made most of them invinsible but obviously not - an oversigt on my part! I'll look into the other issues - many thanks! And, for your info the music isn't "weird" - it's Appalachian hehe

OK, finally got round to putting Pioneering: Explore the Early American Frontier up for sale on my website. My site will (hopefully) not be my main distribution channel but I think it is nice to be able to sell it from my own backyard, as it were! Anyways, for anyone interested in seeing where I am taking the game in the future or interested in getting the demo, etc, here is the link:

Well, I'm not convinced it looks that great - but I tend to find a site that does something vaguely similar and then use that as my...inspirtation

EDIT: I meant to put "I'm not convinced" - not "I'm convinced" - sorry if I came across as being waaaay arrogant

Quick update on this project I've spent the last two days revisiting an old peoject of mine (a recreation of a frontier fort) and created a mini-epsiode in my Pioneering series that emphasises exploration and education. This mini-installment in the series came about after I started thinking about some specific aspects of game marketing (if you haven't already you can check out the group discussion on monetizing FPSC games here: http://forum.thegamecreators.com/?m=forum_view&t=153735&b=21) and a desire to put out a title that didn't rely on shooting, etc. Anyways, here are the screenies:

The screens and the covers look very good! I hope you get some sails! This looks very good. I will tell about this game to my friends. I'll be sure to say that.


Can you survive from the horrors of the hidden land Occulo?
