Congratulations Sim9/RobbyZ (Idk what to call you on the forums),

You have driven away people, as what bumchin said...

 

We as the players just want some form of justification whether you are completely finished with the game.

And if so, us players will stop nagging you for answers, questions and complaints. 

 

I just want an answer as to WHY, just some simple reason other than some junk you just forced. 

Maybe you're tired of developing, maybe it's because you're getting a non-game development job,

or maybe it's because an entirely different reason, but I still want to know.

I can't speak for everyone, but I agree with what bumchin is saying, and I think at least

some other people feel the same way. Don't think that just because 8bitmmo has far

less people playing than you want that you aren't good at what you do. People are leaving

because they want justification, updates, both, or some other reason that I will never know.

Don't change just because you want popularity or money, I liked this game because you

seemed to care about the people playing, as well as the moderators. If you feel 

that you want to do something BIG instead, I can't stop you, but don't forget about the 

people who still play this game.

And if you're not gonna update the game, what's the point of even keeping it? You might aswell just sell it or give it away.

I still don't understand sim. He says that "big updates have no consecuencies" (See in IRC)

 

Big updates like... Transponders? That's even an update? Did you really think, Rooby, that doing an item that destroys your world and then for building it again you need a premium item? Are you kidding me?

I'm really not a regular forum user, as you've probably noticed, but by now I feel the need to throw my own opinions out there.

 

Sim, you've changed. And unless there's something major I'm missing, not for the better.

 

I'm no programmer, but I'd like to think I'm reasonably competent at image editing. Given how simple the graphics are (which is not a criticism, just a fact) and that all systems are already in place, I honestly fail to see how a few extra blocks would take more than an afternoon to throw together. Anything to show you still care in the slightest about the game would mean a lot to most of the regular players.

 

As a moderator, I'd prefer to avoid questioning you, but given your response to every other thread made on the subject is to lock it and refer them back to here, yet all you do here is refer players to another thread made some time ago - I'd really like some actual answers. Even if that's just some explanation of why 'something new' has been all you're willing to say for the last few months.

I personally believe that it won't be long before he bans people for posting in here their honest feelings.

 

Also sim, you should really allow someone to help you with programming things.

It's obvious you're busy doing something else, so get help for this.

I've seen many posts from here. I don't want to start any more fights in here, but as I wanted a solution, I've sent you a PM message, too bad you ignored mine, so I had no choice but to publicize it.

 

That message refers to bumchin's suggestion in one of his post in this thread: Having someone to help the coding part. I'm not an expert in programming, but at least I could help him make blocks, stuff, etc. I also said that I did NOT want any credit from that, I just wanted to help him, and he could freely pick a price for (nearly) every blocks I make, hosting events you want, and so on. 

 

I could see your depressing face through your posts. I know that not expecting an increase of players after your update(s) is a pain, but the point is, will you get over it or not? You want some dollars from your game? Get working! You can't make any money from sitting there and doing nothing.

 

The fact is, with just a technique called copy-and-paste, you could create updates for years without having to spend so much time on them (Since there behaviors are the same) Then you can spend the rest of your time on something bigger (A more complex block/item), or your personal work, ....

 

Want an example? From just a block (Small concrete), you can create A LOT of new blocks! And yet, they have the same behavior, so we just need to spend time editing the image and testing it (Refer to Meep's post)

 

Spoiler

 

If you have personal issues, just tell everyone. They might give you a solution, or making you feel better. Afterall, it's a good community :)

 

Finally, if you want to know how passionate I am, ask MarbelZ. He got the whole IRC chat about him and me talking about what I would do If you accepted. And, these will be my last words for this topic, as I think this is the best solution if you don't have the mood to make updates anymore.

 

Thank you for reading (If you do)

If no-one ever called attention to the lack of updates, the game would just die slowly and quietly. Everyone here wants to see the game live, however annoyed they may be.

I saw this coming from a mile away. It was bound to happen eventually.

Actually he's been pretty up front about how he's not working on 8bitmmo.
<sim9> I'm not working on 8Bit stuff, I've been up front about that since I switched gears last year

What I'd like to know is the "switched gears" part.

Since he's not working on 8bit stuff, what is he doing?

Is he doing 9bit, something unrelated, or nothing at all?

I wasn't there when he said that, so if he said what he switched gears to I'd like to know.

 

I'm not sure that sim9 is even reading this forum topic anymore.

"...Work is love made visible. And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy. For if you bake bread with indifference, you bake a bitter bread that feeds but half man's hunger. And if you grudge the crushing of the grapes, your grudge distils a poison in the wine. And if you sing though as angels, and love not the singing, you muffle man's ears to the voices of the day and the voices of the night." - Kahlil Gibran

I doubt an entire game community would quit because you left, no offense.

 

And I really don't think KJH787 would quit because of you either. unless you managed to steal a bunch of his valuable belongings.

 

If anything, VirgoanSunset really caused a spark on the forums with this thread that really started the outrage of the people who want updates but none are gonna happen for a while

 

and if anything, I'd say Chris's outburst from a few months ago probably impacted the game more than anything you've ever done (probably more than anything I've ever done).

 

It halved the current playerbase (20 to about 10 average on a good day), put up a huge blockage on the steam player flow (and steam is where most people even find this game),

resulted in the ban of many players, and yadda yadda you've heard the rest.
