First i would like to say once i read the bottom i kinda got some chills.

But i would love to see this game released ASAP, but i would very much like to see it complated, but also as you said there will be the alpha for some of it so all i have to say is i do wish phobos was live now but all im saying is another 2-6 months will not kill me waiting for the dev's to do everything that is needed for phobos to run smooth.

So with all that said all i really wish to see is like a boss monster an maybe some of the Aoe's or some of his sick damage he can do to a person, in a next teaser or something :D:D.

Ceyco out :D:D :twisted: :king:

I was wandering through the world of Erasan earlier today, and I asked myself the question: what’s actually left to do?! Because in this world I can now walk, talk, sit, fight, trade, gain levels and skills, cast spells, complete quests, and almost get killed by a group of maggots which have 'mysteriously' discovered the secrets of fire magic.

Although we’ve given you a to-do list, we’ve kept you mostly in the dark about our exact progress. But take a seat at the bar, and I'll explain exactly what is left to do.
Image
Programming department
The internal alpha test has seen some amazing progress thanks to hard work from both Robbert and Tobias. The most recently completed server feature was a group/party system. In terms of what’s left on the server side there are only a few more features which need to be completed, most notably: item effects on a character (meaning potions, eating food, etc.), improved monster/boss AI and the guardian admin interface. But those features aside, server focus from now on is mainly going to be bug fixing and content (meaning creature/item stats, spells, damage formulae and a hell of a lot of balancing). Balancing will be an ongoing thing, of course. But we hope to be able to straighten out any major problems during the ongoing alpha and future beta test server. The client is also nearing completion with just a few features left, most importantly: private messaging and improving the spellbook.

Graphics department
As you can see from the to-do list, the remaining material for graphics is in environment, buildings and items/equipment. The environment and buildings part are also graphics required to map the final area which will be accessible at release. The remaining 5% in items/equipment is mainly quest items and a few extra armours which are necessary for balancing.

Writing department
As in the to-do list, our NPCs are almost all done, and the final 5% on the to-do list is largely error checking. On top of that there are a few more NPCs being added which are required for certain quests. There will also be some small adjustments to NPC conversations to make NPCs more ‘human’ and generally easier to interact with; but that isn’t actually required for release, and so will be left until later. Similarly, the final 5% in books is really just spelling and grammar checking. As I've said before: quests are the only area where I feel that the writing department is behind. But we're working on that.

As far as the map is looking, with the few new graphics that are required the last 5% will take about a month, plus time to fix map bugs. Fully implementing the transparent water that you might have seen in a teaser a little while ago will also take a bit of time on top of that. But still, I think you'll agree that it’s a price worth paying.

So, just one question...
How much are you looking forward to playing Phobos in 2012?


Yours,

Thats not bad thing. If you play alpha/beta or anything you will already acquire some knowledge about the game and when you start it for real you will be "ahead" from other players.
And also, after waiting SO MANY YEARS, do you think I would miss the chance of logging into the game to see how it is like? NO WAY!
