First of all, I hope that this question has not been asked repeatedly, but I couldn't find any topic about it, although, I have to confess, I didn't look for long. Still, if this has been asked and answered, I would like someone to point me out to said topic.
( And add a search button or tell me where it is -,- )
Anyway, some friends of mine want to join Star Wars Combine after my continuous nagging about how awesome this game is. Problem is, the one who was the most interested in it, wants to take the R&D skills but they are not functioning yet. Is there an estimate, or even a guestimate, on when they will be implemented?
"You are asking for some concrete development timeframe. The dev team doesn't work that way. Its more of a "I can spend an hour or two doing this, I'll get to that later, etc" system. Combat could be ready tomorrow or a year from now, it all depends on how much time the coders can volunteer for it."
Hal, last I heard, Zhao wanted to get it done after the whole creature/PvP combat is done, but before any sort of entity v entity combat. Hes was also looking at changing the R&D skills around a bit, but hes still playing with the system.
