I may harbor some consternation over a lack of progress in certain areas, but my purpose is to continue to do whatever I can to see this game progress for the scenarios that I love. Which there has been little if any progress on so far. I may label some of you as 'apologists' but that's because you are the focus of my consternation. My fear is that Ralph is taking the easy way out, allowing you all to defend his action, regardless of how little he's taken on the areas of the game where it needs it the most.
I'm not actually in a position to know -- but my gut feeling is that this is unfair to Ralph.
First off, he has gone out of his way to accomodate my wishes on at least one occasion, and secondly, if computer programming is like anything from fixing cars to raising good strawberries, there's more work involved than one might think.
So be nice to Ralph. I'd guess we're getting our money's worth.
As to being an 'apologist,' one can pick that term if one chooses. At the end of the day, it takes time to make changes, and I will freely admit that I want to see the time devoted to making the changes I want made rather than those someone else might want made.
Given that Ralph is going to program for ten hours, I'd just as soon those hours went into implementing the change I favor rather than the one you favor. No offense.
I certainly don't want frigging submarines. For the reasons I have discussed elsewhere, I think those are silly. Now, if they could be had for free, well I'd say let you have them for free.
The thing is they can't, and the hours that go into implementing them could have gone elsewhere. You are, of course, at liberty to argue the reverse. But at the end of the day, Ralph will only put in so many hours.
