  1. Town Square Release

    It surely has some great potential. Can't wait to play the game! Experiencing the full game is a dream of mine. If I could, I'd jump to 2020 to play the full game, lol.
  2. Basically, nothing we all want to play for and not the money we all paid for, but for an extremely limited time. Let's be honest, singing, painting, reading/writing books and going to cinemas are great, but not why we paid so much money, maybe even hundreds of dollars. Just out of curiosity, and not in terms of estimated time arrival, just.. again, because it intrigues me. Identity will have 3 modules, each module will bring with it a new aspect of the game (SWAT will bring with it guns and shooting aspects, cars will bring driving and delivery I assume?), and , eventually creating the beta (as in all 3 modules implemented?) or beta will bring with it additional stuff? I know it's a deep into-the-future kinda question that only devs are able to answer but I hope I'll get an answer eventually. Sure, I'll play Identity and will patiently wait for all the modules to come out and I'm excited to see what's going to come next along with each module but I wish we could see the overall plan (or is it improvised?).
  3. Compensation?

    Hey guys, I've been thinking.. we all pledged for something, and yet we didn't get it in time. Why won't they compensate? I have sent John a message and he failed to answer. Its been almost 5 days. It's absurd. I paid $500: 1. I don't get what I paid for in time 2. I don't get an exact ETA for the game I'm so hyped about 3. I do NOT get an answer after waiting almost a week (he still hasn't read it yet!) I'm legit asking for some sort of compensation, not only for me but for all those who have pledged any amount of money until the moment of announcement for another "final" delay. Oh and... no, I would NOT like to get a refund.
  4. I'm sure they will, they do check the forums out every now and then and they sure are not blind and can see the majority of the complaints here. Let's take this as an example. 1 new task is left, 4 tasks are being worked on and 1 task is complete. Basically, untouched - Gray, in progress - Blueish, completed - Green. While things are done being in progress, they are being tested, which is Yellow, like we see in this pic: I hope I helped you.
  5. Delay announced by Motown

    I don't think you understand how they might be thinking. I remember when I had to design a new system for a game I've had, I did it as fast as I could and tested it after changing every line of existing code I've had, I tested it almost all night long and have had a few times I was working 14 hours non-stop. But then.. from bugs experiences (due to so many tests), I came up with an even better idea, sometimes for an entire system replacement! A few tweaks here and there, a few modifications here and there, keep testing it all non-stop... and boom, 3 days of work are paying off. Obviously, talking about a small-scaled systems, I cannot even imagine how it's like with Identity, but I do try to imagine it and I understand. While, yes, I do know that it's another delay and they did not mention the reason, you do need to understand they base this game from 0, everything they create is their own, including animation and 3d/2d art, which is a lot of time even for the expert ones. So yeah, if there are a few bugs I wouldn't be surprised they are working on fixing it, but I would not be surprised if they planned one thing and ended up with another thing entirely, that's the beauty of development, code writing and testing your product to attempt and avoid all sort of possible bugs. Please don't get me started here... PLEASE. This line is SO WRONG in so many ways...
  6. Modules, Full Game and the Expectations

    I agree with everything you've said! I believe in this concept and in Identity as well, I don't mind it's having a small delay and I don't care how long it takes. At the end of the day, this development stage is going to pass and once we're in-game we're all going to do enjoy the game and most of us will forget about how long we waited for it. Yes, it is annoying to wait even longer, an overall of 3 years of waiting with almost no communication from the devs and almost nothing's official, but the last delay message brought with it a lot of new open doors, all in-game systems information, a progress bar, soon - a new site and a new video representing all about Identity from the inside... that's a lot coming all at once! And that boom of info is what I'm sure we've been waiting for quite a while. In my opinion, by the end of May we will have everything (but that's only my personal opinion).
  7. Only a few more day

    I agree. I think if we wait a month starting today, you will have too much information available. Just one month with all the finishing touches and then it will all come out at once and boom you've got so much of everything. The BIG release. If you waited for 3 years for this game, I understand why you feel this way, but what's 1 month for this release at long last? It's nothing!
  8. About the delay.

    Sorry, I've got nothing to say about that. I agree with you entirely, but I doubt the active mods who do not participate in the development are aware of what's happening when, while those who do are busy developing the game & testing it. If we want it to come out quicker I believe a daily update to the task manager is brilliant.
  9. Only a few more day

    Which is why they don't give a date, again, to avoid such a situation. While I do understand how you feel and trust me, who likes me feels the same way, I am trying to see it from their point of view as well. They create an extremely detailed game, I'll give them whatever duration they need so we'll be able to enjoy in-game and not experience unexpected crashes or game-breaking bugs, memory leaks or un-optimized game which will require me to get i9 7900x & SLI Titan X to get it on minimum. I wait for the new site, then a video, then information about all the systems in-game, not the game itself. I suggest you do the same.
  10. About the delay.

    Trust me, I totally understand you, but imagine they had several things to do all at once, let them release the new site first (it should be here next week), once we're there I assume a month of delay. The tasks they have in the task manager on the site is all the work they have left, once that's all green we're good to go. Since yesterday they already completed 6 tasks out of 64 and 2 are in testing, so let's consider it as 8 out of 64. Since we already have a delay, let's AT LEAST not be this frustrated and disappointed, it was obvious a delay would come out (wasn't it?), but at least we get WAY MORE than the last delay - a video (and a detailed one, according to them), a new site, a task manager, way more detailed info about the in-game systems (again, according to them) and possibly an upgrade to the package you pledged for (if Paratus would be willing to listen to my suggestion). Let's be optimistic, or, at least, try to.
  11. About the delay.

    Dunno what about you, but I rather having a good solid base to this game and not one which is not optimized and buggy, so yeah, if another month is needed to release it - go right ahead. Along with this delay we get a task manager that will give us the ability to estimate the release date ourselves and not base it all on a time limit - which can also lead to a very short delay as well. Regardless, I do think a small "apology" gift can be given to those who pledged so far. I've sent Paratus a message about it. Let's hope for the best, guys!
  12. Delay announced by Motown

    The second I'll see a new video from their side I'll give it max 2 weeks till it's going to be released. Regardless, next week we're going to have a new website, so I assume it's +1 month, so.. will May have the day?
  13. Can't say it was unexpected. What is expected now is all the refunds they will be giving out from all the people who paid so much money and said "if it gets delayed again I'll ask for a refund". Honestly speaking, along with this delay (which they said will be minor), they did release a task manager so I honestly believe it will be more transparent and visible as to when it will be released (or, at least, so I hope).
  14. A Practise Case For Two Law Firms

    I'd like to participate if possible. Perhaps I'm way too late, just seen it now, lol. Maybe we can have another one?
  15. Crime Careers

    Oh God I just REALLY hope by the time all 3 modules are out there will be a lawyer career and an actual court with option to advance to be a judge from a lawyer (after some training course or law school or whatever it takes, I'll let the devs design this one)! I'm not sure if it's designed or not, but if it is I know what I'm going to do in-game! The other criminal jobs sounds like fun but I would rather not go with that direction myself.
