Apb needs a plan B or C

Recommended Posts

Look I understand your team at Little Orbit is under enough pressure as it is. But you people at Little Orbit need to remake this game right now just restart all over please for the sake of the community and for the sake of many people's sanity. You're all working with super outdated coding along with files I know you get that comment a lot but right now all I see is these files and this whole program is just one big monster consuming your time and energy along with money. However you get little or nothing when you invest a lot of time/resources through patching up some of these fixes. You have the right's to the game and the concept I don't understand why you people can't get good investors or better 3D programs such as maya, autodesk, 3ds max along with adobe photoshop or whatever new software  and technology out there that is good to develop video games.  Also I read video game credits and some of the most decent to really good video games out there have a lot of names under programmers and animators along with designers and coders. I don't know how big or how small your team is but you either need to hire more people who know what they're doing or you need to back track to see who is actually falling behind or maybe the current staff you have is good however they might need more support.(hire more people) There's a lot of side tracking going on that's fine but will there ever be a resolution? Whoever bought this game did you think maybe the solution is to restart all over? I feel like there's some things that is out of reach for you people.  My solution look I don't mind for you people setting up a go fund me page or accepting donations. As long as you can come up with a good ethical plan that seems rational at the same time(other than this current plan going on). Yeah I could buy some things from armas to support you but get real I barely play this game anymore and I feel like if you gave us a very good reason and a good second plan to support you through donations then that would make more sense. Also it could attract other people outside of the game to see the potential that this could have. At least consider it I'm sure even the smallest amount of donations or spare change could add up to make a difference. Because right now it seems like I bought out all the 99 g1c items.  To be realistic I wouldn't be surprised if this game needs more money from thousands to millions of dollars gta 5 needed 265 million dollars in order to develop the game. Because it seems like most of the investment goes to buying the rights of the game instead of the game itself. I know this may seem grubby but focus more on unsung story,fallen earth and descent I am guessing you have right's over those games and get profit from that too right? Also focus on other titles of games too and make more things for them in order to profit off of them. Get some of that leftover money and put it towards apb and then invest it back if all goes well. Just keep focusing more on social and asylum along with Baylan get rid of the other districts if theyre giving you that much trouble during this time. Just remake those other problematic maps.  I feel like we all could survive off the fight club districts alone with social for a year and maybe that could help save you more time and resources to focus on other things. I know some people want to progress in the game why can't you move financial/waterfront contacts to the fight club districts for the time being. I don't know but maybe you guys should consider this you seem like you're juggling too many tasks at once. I personally could live with just baylan and social district alone. 

 

Merged.

 

Or better yet why don't you guys bring in smaller maps such as the beacon.

What is formatting.

 

Better software does not equal better game. Plus they are already running 'industry standard' stuff.

 

This is some delusional advice at best and game killing at worst.  Regardless it is too little too late anyway.

Oh really? how come the software back then that was first used to make this game and it was considered state of the art at the time made the outcome bad for this game? Get real better software is a better investment. Why don't you challenge your own theory and make apb better yourself I'm guessing you're good at developing video games and such?

The software they are using now is very likely the same software they were using then. Game Dev software really hasn't changed that much in the past decade and a bit. Everyone still runs photoshop, everyone still runs maya/3ds, some have added zbrush if you're messing with PBR pipelines or feel like baking down normals (which APB does). At this day and age there is not really a 'better' it is all sidegrades in a way and even comes down to what kind of game you are making. Blender holds up, even cinema4d. People get away with using gimp or a pixel based photo editor for other types of games. Software does not make a game.

 

I never claimed I could make APB better. I have a degree in interactive entertainment and some time in the industry but 99% of the staff likely has far more time than I do and a single person does little when making games is primarily a team development at this level.

The way it feels so far for most is that LO as a company has no idea wtf they are doing, so everyone feels like they should chip in and help them. But I'm sure what we are telling them is stuff they already know but refuse to acknowledge because apb LIVE is a sh!t show
