Figured I’d make another topic instead of necro’ing the one I made last time.
This thread is sort of a follow up from a comment I made on someone else’s thread as it really got me thinking.
Firstly this isn’t a thread to just bash on the devs, if you want to do that then please start another topic; this thread is more just my thoughts on what we as consumers should really be getting in terms of interaction.
@Lisa, @Gizmo I’ll be honest; I don’t actually know how active you two are on the forums. For all I/we know you could read every single comment of every single thread, but the fact we don’t really know that is part of the issue. You’ve both created a game and a community and you should both be proud of that, so interact with us! Give us feedback on ideas, join in with our conversations! Instead of just posting an announcement once a month.
That sort of brings me onto my next point. The forums are kind of neglected. I have an account on here, I’ve joined the discord server and I follow you on Twitter but all three platforms have different announcements for different things; surely you should be updating all 3 with the same stuff so those who don’t use discord or Twitter can still be kept in the loop?
My final point is probably my biggest bug bear and it’s likely the same for everyone else here - the lack of transparency. Game development takes time, developing new items, clothes, poses for the game take time and we get that, but why not let us know what you’re working on, more frequently? In my previous topic I asked for a road map, however we don’t really even need that. Just keep us updated, tell us the cool things you’re working on, show us pictures and let us know how things are progressing. A lot of the hate you two receive is from players who are told an update will be “out soon” to then not hear anything for 6 months, and that’s just not really acceptable, when these people are part of your community!
You have some really great platforms here as well as some very talented individuals who want to create items for the game, so work with them, let them flourish and then everyone wins!
Yes I understand that you don’t want to be updating the game with new content every other day, so put it to a poll, see which items most people want and then add them in turn.
if Gizzy and Lisa do end up reading this, I hope they let us know and can see where I’m coming from. Like I said this thread isn’t to bash them or abuse them, they’re just my thoughts on how we can all be treated a little better.
thanks for reading
