Dunno if I could go blind on buying it. DW didn't start out as the game we know today and it took many years of updates and expansions to get there. Not saying dw2 will be bad in the end but in the beginning it might have some teething issues since it is a very small production of a very large game. I have faith the dev(s) will get it right though.

I couldn't wait for MOO3 either and I wish I would've waited on that.

Hi everyone,

The game is coming together, but there is always a lot more to do. We are still working daily on development, art, design and data together with our artists and supertesters and the trials and tribulations of life occasionally knock us for a loop, but forward progress this year has been truly excellent. I have learned not to give estimates, but I am happy with the team we have and the progress we are making. We have been staying close to the latest milestone schedule we set for ourselves earlier this year and I expect wider testing will begin in the coming months. When we have more complete art in the game and we've made it through the first wave of testing, I expect we'll have a lot more to share with you all.

Regards,

- Erik

Erik Rutins,
Thanks for update. I hope DW2 will be easily adaptable for the current sets of mods without too much work for the modders. I sure would love to see an "all" button as in "Retrofit All" for things like resource stations that aren't part of a fleet. Hopefully it would be capable of stopping when it runs a player out of money. Also would like to see AI actually do retrofitting far better than currently, that would help make them a more challenging. I remember Worm Holes were a lot of fun in an old space game, enter in one part of the galaxy and end up coming out into some far away sector, if the ship comes back out of an unstable one.

Yeah I was looking forward to that MoO3, turned out crap.

But, really looking forward to DW2 though.

Much of the problem with moo3 was the switch of developers and how the industry was morphing from niche well developed titles into the generic appeal to as broad an audience as possible model. The new devs tried but were not able to capture the intent and creativity of the original devs. I don't have this type of fear for dw2 and will most likely buy it at launch full retail provided the forum feedback on it is positive though expansions better be a bit more reasonable.

Christ! I chose a good time to get into the game!

Edit: I just read through the whole thread and god is it painful. The number 2019 springs to mind sadly...

Edit2: do we at least have confirmation that it will run on 64bit architecture? I cant see the game really going any further with out it.
