  1. Delay thoughts?

    I don't think you understand the problem... If everything relating to news and development is announced via the twitch streams (something that not all people use), then what's the point in having a website; dedicated to the news, development and community for the game, if everyone just says "just watch the streams"? Like I've already said, I don't mind getting the recap of a twitch stream now and then. The problem I have is that I can't engage in any of those twitch streams, I can't ask questions because it's no longer live in my timezone. My friends that are looking forward to this game only visit the website once every couple of weeks to check on progression and often see nothing because nothing is being put on the website. I can't see why there's a problem with publicising the progress on their own website, it's like Microsoft going to Google and saying "Hey, can you advertise our new browser for us?" and then telling everyone to go look at their new browser previews on Google Chrome... (If you don't understand the metaphor; it's a terrible business decision to headquarter your progress externally - somewhere that takes away activity and traffic from your business)
  2. Delay thoughts?

    Thanks for the response. What about doing recap articles after a stream? Surely the content that was broadcast is already pre-approved to be showcased to the community?
  3. Player Resting/Sleeping

    I possibly derailed the conversation a bit with my last comment about a leveling system... but I'm sure in the introductory video the dev mentions that while they don't have leveling as a feature, they do have skill progression, which is what would align with YOUKNOWBRO's suggestion.
  4. Player Resting/Sleeping

    This is still something that confuses me... why would you not have an exp level system? It shouldn't have any bearing on the game itself, but it could be good for the social aspect (bragging rights, or when talking to people you could know whether or not they're full of knowledge). Each level up could provide some form of bonus for the player, as in like an extra $100, or items that are typically available might be added to the players vehicle or home just to save them a few $$$.
  5. Delay thoughts?

    I have absolutely no quarrels with the release date being pushed back slightly (a month is a slight delay in game development). What I do have problems with is how the Identity team release information. Unless I follow the twitch stream (which isn't streamed at ideal times for me anyway), I don't know if anything is being done at all. There's a new community manager that got appointed, but Identity's homepage, literally THE place to discuss Identity, is completely left untouched - save for one article a month. If you want your fans to keep faith in you, start showing everything on your own website, so people that don't follow your twitch can actually see you're doing something. Brandon shouldn't have any issues getting a few screenshots each day for what's been worked on for the previous day and writing up a quick article to detail what it is that's happening... that's why you have a community manager - to connect your community to your developers.

    Thanks for the updates, guys. However, might I suggest for those that don't use twitch or discord that it may be worth re-posting the content on the website as brief update announcements. Like myself, I have a few friends that can't wait for the release of Identity, but only view the website for updates on progress or news. It can't hurt to inform people across all mediums
  7. New Community Manager!

    Is there any reason why there's no updates been provided for all of November? Is there somewhere else where the updates are being posted or is there just nothing to update this month?
  8. RV Usage

    Finally... someone that understands what I meant! ...and as far as the meth-lab configuration goes, surely the meth lab equipment is already in your RV? Otherwise how does you driving out into the wilderness without any meth equipment allow you to make meth when you pull over?
  9. Is the RV used for anything else other than meth production? If not, what stops the police just from pulling over every single RV they see to arrest them for meth production right at the start? Would it be possible to produce meth anywhere if you have the right materials and processing units?
  10. New Community Manager!

    Right, but you're not really understanding what I'm saying... lol. Either they have really bad planning with how they initially divided the modules up (as there's requirement to move content from one module into another in order to get a sense of completion out of it), or they're not disciplined enough to stick to their own project structure (by working on stuff they shouldn't yet be working on - by their own deadlines and dates)... so which is it? It can't be a case of "I'm not happy with it, I need to keep working on it", since in a video game that would mean the module will never be released. No video game developer is 100% happy with their released product. They always think something could be tweaked or added to improve the game. If this game is to ever make it to its final release date, the developers need to have clear goals and deadlines for specific areas of the game... they've already set those, but they're continually pushing them back, so it comes back to the initial question; which is it?
  11. New Community Manager!

    But we're not looking at an actual release here, we're looking at a beta test. Some content can (and probably will) be missing and that doesn't give a representation of what the final product will be. With your analogy, it's more like a book cover being released ahead of the book, to get a critique of its appearance. It isn't necessarily exactly how the cover will look, it's a rough idea to show the potential reader a glimpse of what's to come.
  12. New Community Manager!

    I'd prefer neither. This isn't the actual game announcement, it's purely a module from the game to test certain elements, so as far as the announcement goes, they should be able to provide a specific date without delay, whether the module is being tested while fully complete or not. Obviously I'm sure they'd prefer the module be completed, but it isn't a necessity, and from what I've read, they seem to be adding more content to the module that wasn't initially intended to be in the module (so that's likely where the setbacks are occurring). Either way, I'm expecting a module announcement in the next few days...
  13. New Community Manager!

    ...so they're really using up all the time in October just to announce when the module will be released then, huh?
  14. Question

    Don't you have to meet someone in-game first to receive their contact number?
