Further news from Lead Development (2020-01-10)
« on: January 10, 2020, 06:14:42 am »
Our lead developer helloer has further news on the development of Soldat 1.8 and the upcoming Steam release which he decided to share with the community.

Quote
A small update on the development:
As you know, I have failed once again to release the next version of the game on time, I'm deeply sorry for that.

At the beginning of the New Year, I set myself a final deadline to release v1.8 in Q1 2020. This time, however, if I won't deliver a new version in that time I will proceed with plan B which means I will: 1) Release 1.7.1 on Steam 2) Open-source v1.8 codebase 3) Step down as a lead developer.

To be clear, I'm not done yet with developing Soldat and I hope it won't come to that, but I had to draw a line because this initially hobby project to improve Soldat has turned into a never-ending project.

I will keep you informed about the progress towards v1.8 so stay tuned.
Thank you for your understanding <3

It does not make sense in my opinion... How many people still playing soldat? 10-15 players on 2 public servers (only CTF mode). Helloer, I have respect for your work but let it go. The best times for this game are over :(

I understand that Soldat is not so popular as it was. But Soldat is also game that has very unique gameplay and you cannot find such a game like this. So, good luck development team, at least I am excited to see this game reborn again. And I bet I am not alone.

I'm happy this game is still being worked on. I'll return with the Steam release and see how it's doing. :)

I hope they will make it on time, but even if they don't I'll be glad that Soldat will be finally released :> Haven't played in a long time, but still owning new ppl will be fun XD
Actually if they already made that auto-update system then even if they release "1.7.1" they should be able to add it maybe somehow? (so it won't be 1.7.1 but 1.7.1.1 or 1.7.2 already.. well whatever it just will be UPDATED game with new feature so it will be something new :D) If they would add it then 1.8 will be the first update to hit Steam after release :>

Why don't you open-source the codebase anyways, i.e. regardless of whether or not you release the new version by your deadline

I'm sorry, but it's over Johnny. The developers didn't do their part. I'm not saying I would've done better, but they sure as fuck didn't care enough.
Soldat is like a ghost town.

Now come at me.
