The reason the creator doesn't like to update the ETA, is because he knows there's a 90% chance he'll overshoot it, and everyone will get angry. However, if you'd like updates You can scroll through the comments on:
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
Hello once again good people of the world! Hope you're all doing well and as always thanks again to you guys who have incredible levels of patience and understanding! Shoutout to folks like ShadowSteelGX and 8Bit_Yeti for keeping people posted while Ive been away and busy. So, lets break down whats going on as of late:
First and foremost things are still progressing and its getting into the super juicy region now! More recently, me and Medrike have been ramping up all the technical stuff in regards to NPC's, quests, SPECIAL all that kind of thing! As of right now, we've got 15 quests planned out and a ton more concepts cooked up. With that comes NPC's (each with their own unique design), tons of locations, rewards. The whole works! Medrike has been working super hard and has got things running well. it's really quite amazing seeing things work the way they do. With the interactions between the player and NPC, we are incorporating a (slightly more streamlined) SPECIAL, and there will be branching dialogue and varying options and speech checks.
One of the things we've spent some time on is completely redesigning the beginning of the map, the story, opening and beginning sequences. You'll be treated to a cinematic, SPECIAL establishing sequence, NPC interaction, and a whole lot more that brings a whole new level of awesome to the beginning and will help establish expectations for you guys for when the next iteration is released.
Speaking of which, we've decided we are going to release a demo of sorts. It'll give you guys a chance to try out all the new stuff we've been working on and for the few of you that played/watched the original, youll get to see how much has changed since WAY back then. The demo will feature a little bit of everything so you guys can all see how things work and itll tide you over while we continue work on the main event. Once this demo is released, it would be REALLY REALLY appreciated if those of you who give it a whirl could provide feedback (as little or as much as possible) so we can keep things super polished.
As of this morning Im continuing work on the resource pack too. We've got ambient sound effects, custom sound files and music and, thanks to more recent update, far more and increasingly varied mobs! Good thing there will be power armour for you to use against them, right?
first, u said mid 2016, now your saying mid 2017.Could u at least give us an old download, thats better than not providing a DL at all!
I'm sorry, but even if an old download of the map did still exist, and the creator wanted to post it for whatever reason, it wouldn't work. Most of the resources that the creator used to make the original map so fantastic, are no longer supported with the newer versions of Minecraft, and how the launcher has changed the way Minecraft works. Also, I don't recall the creator promising the map would be done in "mid 2016", and he definitely never mentioned "mid 2017". You have to understand that this map is being made by two guys in their spare time, not a professional team working full-time. As such, delays are inevitable. On the bright side, the creator has said he will release a "demo" version, for those of us who just can't wait for the full map!
Most people don't understand the amount of work that goes into something like this. Think about it. If you were tasked with something like this, how would you go about doing it? Essentially, this is pretty much a standalone game, with Minecraft as the engine. Plus, it's being made by two guys in their spare time. This is something the creators are doing for free, to make people happy, so please don't act entitled.
PLEASE leave a download in this 1.8 is out and 1.11.2 is the latest version D: I really want to play this
The creator can't give us a download, as the map is still not finished. What version the game is at won't change the fact that there's still a lot of work to be done. This a HUGE project being done by just two people, so please try to be patient.
