Hey ... Why hasn't Soldat evolved from single developer to a team of developers yet?

Fixed that for you.

Because that's how MM wants to keep it.
Well, that's dumb and worth questioning.

Isn't that the entire point of this thread, to question MM's decisions and actions?

You're saying that Soldat is dying because of the lack of major new features? New weapons, vehicles, and much more has been on the Do Not Suggest list for years before you even joined the community. Did people think Soldat was dying back then? No.

Saying Soldat is dying now is just a fad invented by depressants and emos.

To be honest I didn't see enough improvements / more features in soldat 1.5... animated .gifs and gravity was the best.
You didn't see....enough? Whether you like it or not, the Soldat devs do not exist to satisfy your definition of enough, which I bet consists of superfluous eye candy, gadgets, tanks, and much more I don't feel like imagining.

You totally disregard my post and only pick out the things you want. I said the main reason is THE PLAYERS. I just said I would have liked to see just a tiny bit more new features as a side note, not why soldat is dying. And no, I've been here long enough to know that vehicles / new weapons and all that crap will never be added, I ment other new and exciting things, mainly new scriptcore functions.

Well, that's dumb and worth questioning.

Umm, no? It's debating if soldat is dying or not and if so, how to revive it.

That's not for you to decide! It's MMs decision. I'm sure MM would have made it open source if enesce didn't come along, but since enesce is still working on it, there is no need to. MM has lost intrest in it, that doesn't mean enesce has, too. When there are no developers MM will surely make it open source after awhile so that it won't entirely die.

If people identify the game as dying, then of course there's a need; doubly so when the current developer is a friggen idiot.

That's called advertising and is generally frowned upon.

Advertising itself isn't bad. It's the form of advertising that's called "spam" that is bad. But either way, I dont think Soldat needs any of that.
Soldat is already popular enough. Problem is in getting people to stay - there are many problems Soldat has that scare new players.

This.

HOWEVER IN CIVILIZED FASHION.

Make a thread and try to have discussion about the game. People's opinions, fav maps, whatever to make it NOT ONLY ADVERTISING. The immature spamming will just scare people. This same applies to real life. Don't tell people to play, don't preach about the stuff but instead mention it.

Or we could just spam screenshots of VirtualTT's maps all over the internet. Surely that'll bring loads over.

edit: I might post screenshots as well as links to soldat.pl in 4chan's /b later today.

Or pay someone to review Soldat and rate it 11/10, without mentioning any of the bugs nor the developer.

I found out about this game a while back through Electric Retard, too bad I didn't get to see this game in its prime.  I don't think there's much hope left in getting new people here.

I could say the same about you, clownman.


Soldat isn't really dieing, gather wise. Although, i've notcied that public servers have lesser skilled players playing in them, which isn't a bad thing. But really, i guess that would make it harder for the next generation of soldat players to be brought into the game, because they will not be as good as the "pubber's" the generations before them.

Soldat isn't going to die for a while, unless 1.6 comes out and it's total shit.


I look foward to 1.5.1 !
