    Try to make a video game (on Unity or Unreal Engine) and you could talk to these awsome team to bring back this awsome game later ! I can't wait to play it !
    If you have not try to make your own game, do not talk trash like that of a greatfull team as put sweat and tears to make FE and now to make remastered of FE or new FE
    I have a great respect for the teams to bring back this old game and good luck for the next FE teams

    Thanks for mentioning, try to make your own game. I got one bro been working on it, got events going on right now, uh u can join too, add me on discord an il get u in game details

  2. Uh, I think Little Orbit, insulted all you players intelligence, with their recent (Fake news) as if they have made any progress on FE2. Guys they gave you pictures with some admin tools shown to tease your minds as we know it fr, FE is over they do not have any legit confirmation that the server would ever be up again. Honestly also they took advantage of the true fans, and attacked their spirit with a fraud agenda of an update. 🤬 The Orbit team tbh 💁😒😂

    Hi everyone,

     

    First, I want to acknowledge that I have been absolutely terrible about providing updates on Fallen Earth.

    Certainly COVID-19 has had an impact on the studio's ability to work on multiple titles at once, but this mostly rests on me.

    I kept scheduling an update for you guys, and then by the end of a 10-12 work day, I just couldn't seem to find the time.

     

    Second, I want to set expectations (again) for where we are and where we aren't. This project is #3 on our priority list right now.

    As a company we can only do so many concurrent projects with the staff we have.

     

    1) We need to get the APB Engine Upgrade out the door. Internally, we have been forced to keep shifting the date out due to performance issues, but we have reached the "all hands on deck" point. This needs to ship, so we can free up developers to focus on other priorities. 

     

    2) After that, we have also committed to a Live stream of Unsung Story for those backers who have waited 5 years to get a glimpse of the game they funded. So the rest of the studio is working overtime to prepare for the June 1st stream.

     

    I want to be clear that Fallen Earth isn't loved any less in the studio. Temporary circumstances have forced us to be very specific where we are putting our resources. The team is excited to get back into the Wastelands, so we can get you guys the game you deserve too. We are still very much in the early, exploratory phase of development where we were testing various solutions to each system that needs to be ported. But here is a description of the short term roadmap to get to our first internal milestone:

     

    - Recreating the terrain

    This effort got fairly far along, but there is still work to do. While the basic shape of the terrain is in, there are 2 subsystems that haven't been ported. The first system uses image "stamps" to deform terrain based on where the original designers placed them. These stamps create more interesting geometry and help break up the height mapped look of what we have now. The second system uses nodes that form lines and areas to deform terrain for roads, hills, lakes, and other areas where geometry has been "carved" away by the remnants of humanity to build their structures.

     

    - Terrain texture layers

    This technology has gotten quite a bit better since Fallen Earth was written. The team was starting to identify the strategy for "splatting" or compositing textures on the terrain to create more variation and interest as the player moves through different ecosystems or biomes.

     

    - Foliage rendering

    This is likely one of the biggest areas where I think we can make the world of Fallen Earth feel more realistic. Foilage systems have become so much more powerful and now contain more realistic looking plants and trees. The team was exploring how to adapt the game's foliage data so it could be applied into Unity's systems. This combined with the above terrain enhancements should be impressive in the final product.

     

    - Streaming the terrain and objects

    The original code was very good at rendering chunks of terrain with only the nearest objects to you. In the new code, we've gone with an entirely new way of chunking up the map that will require us to stream in pieces as you run around. We had just started experimenting with a couple techniques, before the devs got pulled onto other projects.

    NOTE: We have a basic demo for the terrain that I took screenshots from, and this runs extremely slow because all of the terrain and objects across the entire world of FE are rendered.

     

    - Fixes to imported assets

    We also found some bugs in our importer that created inverted normal maps, didn't assign textures properly, or created rigs wrong. We were in the process of fixing these bugs, so we could delete the imported assets and reimport everything from scratch. Then we can re-run the process that builds the various layers to the map, so we can prep streaming.

     

    - Character assembly

    With all the pieces for characters imported, the team had started work on the code that assembles the player with the proper body proportions, head, tattoos, clothes and items. We hit an immediate snag on supporting "selection sets". These are lists of faces on the model that can be shown or hidden by name. The original code used them to hide the areas that are covered up by clothes.

     

    - Basic movement prototype

    This is our first milestone for the project. With all of the above tasks completed, the plan is to (1) assemble a character (2) load into the world and (3) run around the environment with active collisions preventing you from walking through objects. This wont be connected to any servers or running any multiplayer code. It's just a milestone to test everything all together and see how it looks.

     

     

    With all of that in mind, I thought it would be fun to post some WIP screenshots for classic Fallen Earth locations, so you could see how some of this is coming along.


    The shots below show the assembled terrain, buildings, objects and props for the entire world. You'll notice in the upper right hand corner, that we're sticking with the game's original coordinate system. This allows us to hop around the map to inspect things. There are no terrain textures yet because the layering system hasn't been implemented. Just imagine this is Fallen Earth in winter 🙂. Oddly, that effect is enhanced by a good number of the objects that are embedded too low into the ground. This is because we're still missing those two subsystems that I mentioned above that deform the terrain in smaller areas. You'll also see some texturing artifacts on the buildings and objects. Everything looked good as we inspected a couple buildings at a time during the import process. But when we assembled the whole map we found areas that still needed work in the importer.

    And a bit of a fail with Boneclaw… Apparently the ramps for this area are heavily carved out from the terrain, so much of it is buried.

    I'll be the first to say that communication on the priority list, a short term road map, as well as a few WIP screenshots is better than no communication or updates at all. Even if the post originally had "Thanks, Matt" before the final screenshot. 😉

     

     

    None the less, the screenshots no doubt bring back memories and nostalgia and I guarantee a lot of the FE lovers who still check in will enjoy. I for one cannot wait to step into a test realm or see some live streams in the future. Keep up the great work, excited to see more progress updates on FE and other entities over the course of the next year.

    True, tho it definitely had better micro transactions... FE would've had a lot more funding with properly prices items as well as just a broad selection, afterall they had two individuals on the art team.

    On 11/13/2019 at 1:24 AM, Aroa Croft said:

    Let's be realistic from the current point of view and what we have.

    - There is no online game.

    - Everything about the new game is based on speculation, which soon seems to be a Chinese job and the priority for LO is apb and not this game.

     

    About the part of the caravans that you have explained is very good, but I have to tell you that the game "worked very well" at some point until some update was made, therefore "those caravans" were not necessary since there were more solutions simple to make the game "productive".

     

    I don't think there is dishonesty or anything else, but lack of resource management and understanding.

    The new company started by saying that its priority was apb (we all understand it) but after that the company has sold us a motorcycle with long teeth with hope (here comes the Q&A with nysek and the almost monthly post of how many file libraries are missing ) --- So why do you do this if you turn off the server, don't you understand? here is the explanation.

     

     

    you say : There's no added money if the game is losing money because it's too expensive to run the servers and not enough people are paying for it. 

    Look at the game in its essence "it works", it is productive (proven fact for many years) and I already gave the solution 17 months ago , and I don't see the reason why it hasn't been done, being a new company who takes care of it.

     

    Since you want to compare with Bethesda, I tell you that Bettesda has done a good marketing, but although it has launched the game too soon and with bugs, but the benefits are there, starting from a base that is a game that has cost a lot to do . The marketing that I proposed would cost about "zero dollars" and would have taken many dollars of profit in addition to giving a notable increase in population.

     

    You'll see how time makes me right again. If they redo the game and take two years, as estimated, it will be played for as much (30-40 people).

    The reason is very simple, it is called lack of confidence and finally I tell you that what a company must offer in a game is not graphic power, it is not super fast servers, it is not giving promises continuously ......... .......... what the company must offer is a game that of playability, trust and positivity in a common project with its community, which gives benefits to the community (spends its time well) and the game (generates resources)

    Everyone who dislike this drowns in their ignorance. 😪

    For those that believe something should be up for them to play now I ask what your experience in programming is?

     

    You seem to have such broad knowledge on how to fix FE that you must of worked on many, many games to know that in such a short period of time LO should have completed work on a couple of sectors. Just to give you something to do in your down time. Your knowledge of  Icarus must be astounding to know without a doubt how easy it will be for LO to port the game over to a new engine. You must of seen the current state of the coding and figured out exactly what must be done.

     

    Please in your wisdom show us the extent of your knowledge of things obviously none of us have ever considered. Tell us all how to fix the issues in technical terms to prove you really know anything (because of course we  all know those crying for things now, this very instance are clueless on this matter).

     

    Stop getting your panties into knots. Sit back and wait like good little children. FE will get back online 'IF' and 'WHEN' LO can solve the issues they have encountered and not before, no matter how many times you stamp your little feet.

    Dracio 🙄 LO has brainwashed you........  Don't defend something that doesn't care if u slip into heaven by tmr...... They have stalled us out, lied to our mother and fathers............  They have inappropriately touched our members hearts........  Wakeup and see what's going on like fr dude.

    There are many contradictions in your words.

    1- You say that there are too many problems and that a factory reset would not solve it, then tell me, why the game has waited 17 months, knowing this?, it doesn't make sense, don't you think?

    2- I am not informatic, nor do I have any idea of programming, but if it is so difficult to pass data from one side to another, why is the game state and its libraries being sold "from minute 1"? , I don't understand this if the game needs years to work. It's like selling smoke or buying time.

     

    The game only needed two things, a reset and a level limiter at 30, without touching any map,

    With only this, the game protects itself with the materials that nobody could get since there is no level.  and the only thing that would remain would be to protect the objects of "marketplace" in some way as giving them all as "non-interchangeable".

    With all that said, the community would remain active, the game would remain protected and at the same time it would have been an addition of "money (whatever any owner wants).

    Possibly and seeing the words of matt there will be FE 2, but the great impact it could have has been lost, since the game has failed the community and the propaganda that generates this will always be negative. (about informatics, programming I don't know but about marketing yes)

    Agreed, in some way some how the Little orbit team is stalling 🤷 . . If they have people think that this task of fixing FE would take years 🙄 it's another agenda behind it. {my opinion 💁} "They are slowly letting the FE community die off until there is no liking into the game, allowing fans to attend elsewhere, while they slowly banish the game. I believe their real attention was apb reloaded and they got it, clearly nothing else matters." but to those who keep up with this wait <fuss are not awake to their 😂 net surroundings ... #tragic 🤦😭

    This isn't how software development works, friend. It's also not why they're shutting down the game while they work on the new version. The servers are too old, too complicated, too custom, and too expensive to maintain - Matt Scott said as much a while back. Doing a "factory reset" does nothing to solve that core problem. 

     

    Porting a game to a new engine isn't trivial either. Especially since the Icarus engine is so WEIRD to begin with. It's not just opening Unity and going File > Open > FallenEarthprogram. I think you might be thinking of it like ripping a DVD to a video file, or converting a photo from JPG to PNG. Think of it more like translating a novel from Mandarin to French. It's involved, there are nuances, there will be mistakes, part of it will have to be totally rebuilt to get the same effect. 

     

    I short I get what you're saying but you're really, REALLY underestimating how involved this project is going to be. They're rebuilding all of the back-end (server) stuff AND all of the front-end (client) stuff as well. It's gonna take time. 9 months until alpha? A year? More? Yeah, I believe it. 100%. 

    Hm I like this 😋

    9 months to a year tho? .. Bleh

    Matt, at least you could try to reset and leave two maps, which may work and attract new players, all being in a controlled and small environment.

    The biggest publicity of a game is "word of mouth" and although I think it would be stable in terms of money and contributions that players could contribute. For trying a month you lose nothing, since you plan to shut down the server.

    To say that games like final fantasy arose from desperate ideas and are currently referents. To say that I believe in the potential of the game and although I tell you for the last time that the patch of gores was the one that created the current "lag" of the game (which was overwritten on several maps and bosses were put on). That was by mid 2012.

     

    Greetings and thanks for not closing the forum while the game is closed.

    Aroa Croft you make sense 👍 others going against you are drowning themselves. This hold up, it's inconclusive, an wastes time with words following a ending solution. It's just get it over 🤧 once all those who play the new server with a wipe,  they will continue to play. 😪

    it matters, if you are going to give a new start "it is more than enough" with those two sectors and the length of their missions and maps, creation / learning of equipment and weapons, get ap for missions or events and other curious things for get given its rarity, get materials, raise levels ..... among thousands of other things that can be done (like pvp).

     

    I only say that these two sectors give life to the game for at least a year or two, more than enough if not more if you add the "thematic" events (Christmas, Halloween, the day of the dog ...).

     

    As I said, a reset was the solution, and now that the wolf came and ate the sheep, don't expect new ones to come in many years.

     

     

     

    this video i found in youtube explains what happened in game, the wolf came......

    Let's thank all those people who didn't want to "lose" their level, their priceless items (like a piece of cooper that was given to them by another player named Chuck Norris in the game, and who stopped playing), or their investigated recipients ............ seriously,

     

    it's crazy and more seeing that "the silent majority (who does not write in these forums) did not play the game since it was" more of the same, seeing this reality reflected in steamcharts (as I have said hundreds of times).

     

    The game needed a renewal from scratch, yes or yes, but in my opinion the game did not need what has happened and that is the consequence of some "forum players"

     

    The CEO has stoically endured 17 months with this game in decline and has not made the decision to "start from scratch" when he should have taken it as soon as he took this game.

    Since he is a new company and does not have to eat the mistakes of the old company.

     

    I am glad that he made this decision and I am glad to see that all those people who did not want to reset and thereby save the game see the mistake they made.

    In my opinion, a simple reset with two or three maps, would have saved the game and at the same time the game could have controlled "the bugs" and the game would have given a lot of money.

    But well I want to think that it has not been possible to go back to an earlier version or to alter the current one in such a way that it was able to return to something similar to an addictive version as it was in 2011.

     

    I wish strength and give all my support to the CEO and that At least inform us every month of your progress as we are in the dark in an ocean and aimlessly.

    Aroa, u literally made perfect sense about the situation. "Those who debated on the forums to keep their items, they now witness the mistake due to they won't play FE for years to come" and also a valid statement "With LO being a new team they were suppose to make a {serious decision} knowing what they were dealing with clearly} Reset the game and open the 1st and 2nd sector for gameplay to continue for players.
