Alright people Ive been around here for a while, and as of late I want to get this off my chest. The weekly update imo serves many purposes. 1.) To reinvigorate the FH community, to add enthusiasm for the mod during its development 2.)To let the public ( especially non forum users) know that the devs are listening to the community, that they are working on the next big FH idea and that they are progressing towards such goals 3.)To perhaps draw in enthusiastic crowds from other mods or games to further add to the creativity of the FH experience. Now, I love this mod. I love what goes on here. This is not another gove me an update thread. This is constructive criticism. We have recieved 2 updates in the past (4-6?) weeks. I understand that updates are a luxery now and not a privlge. I believe that the the FH devs are not addressing the general public (non forum users). By not posting updates, no matter how small. It gives off the perception of a stagnant, dieing mod. I am not asking for pictures of the next rifle, tank or aircraft, but perhaps a brief synopsis of any new features that FH2 brings to the table. I think (with all due respect) that the devs are in this respect, ignoring the majority of the public by not addressing them through the homepage.

How do we as a community expect to get recognition from other mods, users, EA etc, if our homepage offers trickling trail of updates that are few and much too far between? Perhaps we could discuss things that make FH2 so unique. Whether it be the penetration weak points of a tank, its sloped armor, the rag dolls, or even how the new aiming system on a rifle works. I know the youtube clips are online, but that shouldnt be an excuse to ignore the public. I am sure there are many improvments, features that can be described and not pictured.

So, are you kind of saying that it would still be acceptable if the mods updated the main page with an ..update, even if there were no pictures to say What may happen, and give us more information..even if it isn't 'here is another update to the game'?

I agree if so :P and i know the devs have lives, and are doing a lot of behind the scenes work, but I think if you even posted that 'hey we just finished coding this' or...'We had a little test run yesterday and it was okay'...would be acceptable

yes. ive followed the mod since 2003, but only joined the forums in 2004 as you can see. the homepage at that time was the only way I could find out what was happening at FH.

I totally agree with you. No pic is OK. Anything from Lobo or the other dev makes me passionate.

I understand. But the devs prolly sometimes have other things to do and do not have time tend to the beast of FH.

You know, I kind of agree. Just a paragraph maybe of the status of the mod or so every Sunday would be great. Even if it was just "Sorry guys, nothing new this week, we're just finetuning things" would be good. Regular, weekly updates would be fantastic.....

I ike this idea a lot. Just to show that the mod is still being worked on. even an update like "Well, we killed some bitches yesterday with some weapons, it was coo" would be alright. It shouldn't take more then 5 mins to make a mini update sans pictures

Leave STF alone guys.

He's clearly trapped in a movie theater watching the new Will Farrel movie over and over and over...
