i hope so
Apparently, there are already people alpha-testing the game: https://www.facebook.com/sergiy.grushko/posts/1104945146202874?hc_location=ufi
Too bad it's not us
Yeah, I have got more ideas, so my wish list could get bigger and bigger.
Devs in few reviews announced that they make new C3 game as remake of C1 game, similar in 80-90%.
So, I only try to guess these 10% or 20% changes. However it would be better see more improvements.
Yes say it is modern remake:
Return of the legendary Cossacks! A large-scale historical strategy on great battles of the XVII-XVIII centuries.
Modern remake of the best 2001 strategy, with armies numbering in thousands of warriors and reconciled game mechanics. It’s a genuine RTS classic, including construction and production of resources. A vast selection of unit types, cold steel and firearms, influence of the landscape, and the realistic physics provide the player with an unlimited number of tactical opportunities.
And same information on facebook.
Off corse same changes is good what you say
For a remake, I wish they chose 'HD' instead of 3. It totally will give the wrong impression to lots of reviewers.
Nowy, again I think you miss understood my post. I am not critical of your vision for the game. Truth is that you and I want primarily the same game. 80% of what you propose I would support.
We just are taking a different approach to getting it. From the beginning the developers have told us what they are making. A remake may be an understatement, a remaster is perhaps more appropriate. They stated that the game will be based on C1 BTW. That they were very aware of the in-balances and flaws of the game and that they were going to fix those problems. Add a few units, and make a few changes. BUT the essence of the game will still be C1 BTW.
But the next announcement is the one that I focused on, was that they never expected C3 to the end product. They expected C3 to be the "base" that the game would grow out of. They expect to be working on the game for years to come, improving, and evolving it into the ultimate RTS game ever made.
They plan to do this, with the help of the community through mods, and GSC support, and outright new releases for the evolution of the series.
Most of what you propose would dramatically change the essence of BTW. It would make the game more like AC, or even C2. This would be a good thing for me, but it is not the path chosen by the people who are willing to make the game for us. I say we allow them to implement their plan, and see where it takes us. We may be more satisfied then we realize. Keep the faith my friend!
Condor_fly has stated that the Game on that post that was labeled Beta test. Was an old early version of the game, and not the true Beta version to be used in the closed beta test. Good news is coming, just wait for it. Won't be long now.
And a word to everyone here, I will begin deleting post that are personal attacks, and banning people as a last resort.
You can agree, or disagree. But do not make it personal, or hateful. I will act accordingly.
Good gaming all!
i haven't been here for over a month and still nothing about certain release date
So it's real.
Cossacks 3 "That's not the beta test yet. It's only close alfa test for our devs and their children."
Yes it is me, your long lost son!
Please send Cossacks 3 alpha build...
Is it official? Is the game at the stage of closed alpha testing? This would be a hopeful sign as it would mean pre-alpha (main development) must be substantially completed.
Yes it is.
Next will be see beta stage
I believe the biggest mistake here is not that they are not releasing the game or that they are taking too long to release a BETA. The biggest mistake here is announcing dates for a game and not sticking to those dates. It is simply very unprofessional and it gets people hopes up only to bring them down for no reason. For a team of developers who have experience releasing games this is very shameful. Even though they have already pretty much destroyed everyone's hope and their words cannot longer be taken seriously the best thing they could do now is just keep the silence until they are ready for a BETA and announce the BETA the day it is actually released, or the invites are sent. If they tell the community " the beta will be on X date" I personally will not take it seriously and I know many others in this community that will agree with me.
Maybe you did not write this on purpose, but by saying "the biggest mistake" you are suggesting they have made more mistakes. But so far I see only this mistake you have described well.
But for me personally, I am not gonna cry about it, due to the fact it is a gift to me that they are building the game. It is now just up to me to stay patient. If it needs them another year, fine! As long as I am alive and the game will fall in my lap to play, I am a happy man.
i agree with you, oldschool_cossacks_fan.
For me in person , its ok to wait longer.
No problem.... but sometimes a short, "we are already on it but it takes more time then expected ..." Would ne fine ^^
A good game takes time..!
When a Dev Team announce a release date, then i think " oh ok. They think they could finish some stuff until then but wait and chill, eventually there might ne some problems "
Ok , i agree, not finished but what stop them to tell us the truth? is so hard to come here and tell us ? ,,Guys we sorry for inconvenience, we need time ,we sorry to keep you waiting bla bla bla " .
And we got what? soon ,soon, soon
In linux community, when someone ask when something will be release usually answer is "When it's done.". I think that all users there should be more patient.
I agree with you!
They still promised Q1 even a few weeks before ended, we knew it ain't gonna happen.. So inform us and we can understand. That's it..
Anyway i'm still waiting for the game and dont really care if i have to wait months but the lack of communication killing us.
The C3 facebook page has more updates than here, maybe because of more users following. Too good ( haha ) I don`t have a fb but its opened to be viewed by anyone. They recently replied to another question "When" with - "very soon we`ll make an announcement". Considering no beta is released yet, we might be at least a month away of the final game. I would prefer to wait a bit longer instead of getting a bag of bugs.
lol, not me say first release december 2015, not me say q1 2016, who say? Developers !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
