Big Announcement About Trials!First of all, I want to give me deepest and sincerest apologies for how long the revamp on trials has taken. When we first undertook this challenge, we had high hopes and the expectation that it would only take 2-3 months to complete. However, in that span of time we lost an artist, and our coder due to real life issues and schedule conflicts, and the project ground to a halt. Slowly, we managed to find another artist to help tackle all the work, but still had no coder until recently.
Now, the coder we have, while he's wonderful, is spread very thin between projects, so progress is slow. I want to be transparent about this, so that nobody feels left in the dark anymore, and no assumptions can be made that we are willingly dragging our feet on this. If we had all the resources we needed at our disposal right now, we would be working double time to get the new trials up.
However, being that it's been far longer than we'd ever estimated, due to things outside our control, we've decided that in the meantime, we're going to bring the OLD trial system back! A large part of this sim is trialing and getting all the benefits from it, and we've heard the complaints about it being gone for so long. And we're listening. So, I will be in talks with our old coder, and the new, to see about getting trials back up as quickly as humanly possible! So keep an eye out!
We'll make another announcement as soon as trials are live again. Thank you all so much for your patience and understanding, and I apologize again for how long it's taken, and all the roadblocks we've run into along the way.
Have an amazing day!
