    Spike does scripts now

    1:58 PM - Candles: I'm pretty much done with Empires.
    1:58 PM - Candles: Talk to someone else.
    edit: see post 23 and 48.

    As the sacred empires tradition of giving up and passing the torch to somebody incompetent, candles keeps the games legacy strong.
    Thanks candles, I actually thought we had a future for awhile. Boy was I a fool.

    Why post this?
    Because people outside of the secret club don't know what the fuck is going on with the game ever.
    I have to ask candles to find out whats going on, in fact to find anything out empires related I have to bug people on steam because people telling us anything is really hard.

    Yes a drunk furry is going to code and script and do the job better than Spartacus.
    Might as well post ron paul gifs.

    I don't think spike is gonna be coding. Most of his ideas on scripting aren't bad either. I had the opportunity to try out some of it and it was pretty solid I thought.

    If anything it'll be kinda like when trickster was doing scripts, which wasn't bad, except updates won't be forever between releases, which was kinda bad.

    Still, has anyone actually said that's what's happening? Or is this just spec chat?

    I forgot to paste that, all this information comes directly from him.
    He didn't say who was doing code, so I put spike down doing that as well.

    I didn't think spike knew coding though. I know herbie and lorddz were helping out with that though, though I haven't seen herbie in a couple of months.

    I'm done helping, like all I did was act as a liaison between people because I saw like no communication what so ever.

    I asked questions and discussed issues and helped everyone brain storm.
    I couldn't actually help with anything that mattered so I tried to help in the best way I could.

    Now that candles is done, I see no future for empires period and might as well just stop playing and make it an occasional thing.
    Only hurting myself by playing because im constantly being reminded that this game does not have a future.

    I saw so much progress being done, new models, buildings, bug fixing. Now its just done.
    Infact I am confused why people bother doing anything for this community, its just a dead weight.
    I should know better but im not like everyone here who is cynical as all fuck and still has fun. My only regret is not doing anything else to prevent this.

    People get burnt out, nothing wrong with it. Something that just happens to everyone.

    Uh you seem to be the cynical one here, people are still making new models and working on the game.

    But there is burned out and taking a break verses cleaning your hands entirely.

    People don't seem to understand that there are middle grounds.
    If you do something 24/7 yes getting sick of it is entirely possible.

    But don't take that responsibility in the first place if you are that kind of person.
    I never start anything I know I won't finish, yes im not productive but I always finish anything I start.

    Nobody would have noticed if candles took a month break, the updates were always so minor and infrequent nothing would have changed.
    We would have been fine, but of course the tard has to stay up until 4 in the morning staring at empires code. For weeks on end.

    He could have been something meaningful besides another bump in the timeline.

    Don't be so dramatic. The game is functional, somewhat balanced and there are still people playing it, what more could you ask for a 9 year old mod?

    Before Candles took over, Empires had no coder and wasn't even installing properly, so we are now in a way better position, relatively. And who knows, maybe some day, another programmer will take upon himself this sisyphean task to pay for his sins.

    Yeah, there seems to be a rather ridiculous amount of artists that are doing stuff.

    Art tends to be one of those things that really gets people's dick hard. It's got a pretty tangible effect for the average user.

    But its true though, if none of this was true and real I wouldn't have said it.

    This is a honest dead weight. The only thing I see benefiting people is just experience.
    People use empires as stepping stone so they can get closer to their own personal goal.

    The art wont save the game if the game is broken.
    Right now mute is broken, only admins can stop people from mic spamming.
    Edit: This is a viper issue, mute works fine on EPIC.

    I also noticed you guys are ignoring the checklist beerdude wanted done.
    Firewarrior made one grenade I don't know anything besides that.
    It's not in game, and you are still trying to fix your tank.

    Angry is the one that made the most progress from what I can see, and he is the sound guy.
    He made a new rax model and radar, they are both finished and actually in the game.
    This is facts, im not telling you guys your lazy but this is what happened.

    its worse than spike doing scripts. posthumous and 5 other fucking randos are doing the scripts.
    and they want to bring mark2s back
    and they want to change the vehicle handling



    rip empires
    e: and candles is doing code (in fact, just last night he "coded" a fix to the quickstart guide

    Candles said he was done with scripts many times last night in spec. He said the crap he got for it was not really worth it.

    I say, ban all ya'll :D
