Archspace Ending

From the Bulletin Board at Archspace:

Dear all,

I regret to inform you all that Archspace's last set is currently in session. We're currently running low on funds and dev support team is low on manpower. As such, this will be the last set of Archspace. However, it won't be going out without a bang, there'll be ground-breaking changes coming mid-set, as we make our way to the end of the set. How the set will end this time round is also in review. Wink

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What will happen after the set ends?
A: The game will be taken offline. DT is thinking of distributing the code after this happens, so interested parties should keep in contact with him. He can usually be found on AS IRC (irc.archspace.org:6666).

Q: What will happen to irc.archspace.org:6666?
A: DT fully intends to keep it alive as its on a separate server, so you should still be able to idle in there and chat after the game is taken down.

Q: Will the Empire be returning for set end?
A: ??????????????????????????

Q: What will happen to AS 2.0?
A: http://archspace.org/board/viewtopic.php?t=16249 for those who haven't been keeping up with times, AS 2.0 is a project that HippieHunter is working on to write a new game based on the ideas of AS but on a completely new engine. He intends to pursue this project even after AS is taken down, so if you have things to offer, take it up with him Very Happy

Q: Why the massive changes only now?
A: So when interested parties get the code they can see how easily the game can be expanded (and also to add support for future expansion). The original code contains alot of hardcoded stuff and adding new stuff now forces me to discover where those magic numbers are and use #defines instead. Besides, do you really want the last set to just be any other balanced set? Wink

Q&A inserted by DarkArchon:
Q: When is the set ending/server going down?
A: The set will be ending August 26th. The server will stay up so everyone can view their scores untill August 31st. (sorry for borrowing your thread Naru Smile )

Enjoy the rest of the set while it lasts, everyone's a winner this time round Very Happy

Regards,
Naru
