Is it worth buying?



Seriously, is there any noticeable improvement apart from graphics?

Such as? I've seen very little info about a patch, much less further enhancements?

NDA

But just think about it. There's so much more that can be done with this game that people have been asking for. As far as I'm concerned it will never be finished.

Sure, it will never be finished, but the question is rather when they will stop working on it?

Other than a few mentions in the manual about further changes to the editor GUI, I don't recall seeing any public statements (much less promises) about particular further changes?

Yeah, I’d like to see a development list. What’s in the next patch? Whats been completed so far for the patch? What’s more speculative and further down the list?

IMO would rather have them working on the game myself.

Heh, but then you already seem to have a better idea than most of us about what is going on.

I'm not too bothered either way, but for you to say that lots of stuff is coming down the pike, but you can't tell us about it, and that we shouldn't worry about it anyway, is a bit cheeky!

Putting a list together isn’t going to cause delays in development.

Is every old pre-T4 scenario compatible?
