I'm not complaining that you guys are around, just that I'm not paying you.  You guys are exactly the ones I'd want doing this sort of work at this point, because holy cow you're doing amazing.  I realize that the prior post could have come off REALLY wrong, as if I was unhappy with the volunteers.  Quite the opposite. :)

The irony being that Misery was involved heavily in the original thread, too.  I think it got so odd he just blocked it out of his memory. ;)

I'm with Misery on this.  I approve.  I also put forth that all email communications from this point forward be titled freaking volunteers  ;D

Opened your save. My computer wept. Switched to the ST planet and ship icons filled my screen, so I zoomed out. Game told me that it _was_ totally zoomed out. You could seriously walk from one end of the inner grav well to the other without getting your feet cold.

Pffft. Robots are so last year (or whenever Choice of Robots came out). They're done, played out!

It's T-Rexes. (read right to left)



so I'm trying to get to a point where our new game is ready for kickstarter

Um, all dinosaurs in those images were all wearing clothes. I'm not sure what you are talking about.

Speaking of that... I would be really hyped to hear about these new under-the-hood projects, Chris. I'm looking forward to see your kickstarter (my credit card is waiting near my keyboard, ready for action!) but don't you think your "freaking volunteers" deserve a little peek behind the curtain?

Okay, I beg...
Please please please please please pls pls pls
Please excuse my english: I'm not a native speaker. Don't hesitate to correct me.

If he tries to give just a peek, it's a decent probability that the entire curtain rack will just fall right off the window.  Maybe better that he doesnt  :P 

And the low quality of that joke says it's about time for bed.
