Devlog update (2018-10-02) Steam Store & Patreon
« on: October 02, 2018, 08:25:51 am »
Hey,

Steam Store

As many of you already know, Soldat has appeared on the Steam Store - https://store.steampowered.com/app/638490/Soldat/. Please remember to follow the store page and add it to wishlist.

Soldat on Steam will be free with all paid features known from 1.7.1. In the future, we may add a paid DLC as a way to support the game.

The release date is set to 2018, most likely it will be late December. We will cover the topic of steam integration in the next devlogs.

Patreon
Due to many requests from the community, we decided to start accepting donations. From now on you can support us through patreon - https://www.patreon.com/soldat2d

The money will go to:

    Contributors - depending on the amount of work they have put in.
    Prizes for contests and tours.
    Advertisement for the game.
    Other expenses such as hosting costs or other fees.


It's up to you how much you want to give to support our work, regardless of the amount of donation you will receive:

    Special discord role on our official discord server - discord.gg/soldat

    Hall of Fame mention in the credits section of the game GUI

    More rewards coming soon

As we believe in transparency, all expenses will be made public to the community.



FAQ
1. What about reg keys, do I support the game by buying them?
Money from regkeys goes directly to THD and we have nothing to do with it. Remember that the keys will only work up to 1.7.1, in 1.8 there will be no registered version.
2. I donated X$, can you do Y?
We are open to suggestions but we have our own priorities regarding what needs to be done.
3. Can you pay for anti-cheat from the money you received?
The cost of an anti-cheat license starts at about 1000 Euros per month, we are unlikely to reach this level of donations.

About Steam integration - on Steam there's a way to check who have you played with in a period of about past 3 months. I hope this will also be integrated with the game, so that you will be able to check if the player is playing Soldat using Steam (if person doesn't then his in-game nick won't be shown on the list), his Steam profile name with his in-game nick, so that you can add people to friends etc. ;D This could also prevent faking players by trolls.

So if I understand correctly, people who bought the game prior to 1.8 will get nothing on the new version?

Thank you for spending your time to write this one, hopefully you guys get a lot of support on Patreon because you deserve it, I am going to donate also.

The only thing I suggest is to change the release date, december is a "hot" month on Steam, they release a lot of DLC's, and give a lot of discounts for games that are already famous and people are likely to buy and play it.

By the way, about Patreon, if you want people to support you should figure out quickly what "Something more in the near future" will be, I'm pretty sure some people would like to support the development of the game but are waiting for details about rewards to do so.

Btw. I have an idea, because I remember someone sugested to remove charlie and delta teams : instead of removing them add an option to the teammatch mode that allows choosing how many teams there will be playable on server. (2, 3 or 4) ;)

This could be achieved with scripting but having that out of the box would be nice I guess.

It really will not be better to attract veterans and new blood than the launch on Steam is for 1.8?

It would be, but MM Vult! We will bring Soldat to Steam how fast it is possibiru!!11
Well this is what happens when you announce that game is going to be released, but isn't prepared to it and have proper devteam like 1.5 year after announcement. + you don't actually do nothing about game, soo... (I mean MM) ex di ;) Still, how would it look if we would postpone release (after so many postpones and silence from Shoozza etc sh!t) just to make 1.8 when 1.7.2 is going to be really good aswell.
