One question about FCG. If you have/get the full version of FC :10bux: before/after FCG is released, will there be any discount for the full version of FCG?

I wouldn't mind paying another :10bux: for FCG. And I only think it's fair for all the people working on the game to get paid for each user they get, because there's going to be hundreds of paid users that will get and FCG account. Just my thought.

I agree. I think there will always be some very complex contraptions which will function differently. I don't blame it on the game, but on the flash player.

I Think So... :???:

I can almost guarantee there will be no ovals. I think it would be a pointless addition.

I wish there were ovals, but that would require more complicated physics than inXile cares to implement.

You sound outraged, afronanny!

Ovals are fairly easy to implement. Unfortunately, they slow down the game engine considerably and add little to no value; definitely not enough to outweigh the performance drop. Simply not worth it! (in my opinion, anyway)

Outraged!!!!1

Ovals are not the first thing on my list that I'd like inXile to change though. Probably the badge names.

Does FCG have an improved, faster engine?

All I'm hoping for is auto-detected badges, ghost pieces in the level editor, more possibilities with color and shapes of static/dynamic objects, maybe some features that make costructing contraptions easier such as statistics (pieces, mass, etc.) while you are building, a few new visual bells and whistles, and maybe one or two new things such as the rumored moving platforms and chains. Not sure if I'd like magnets...

I know it's way too late to implement any of these in the game if they aren't already in the game... just saying what I'm hoping for.

Wanna know what I want?

FC2 NAI PL0X

But seriously this is going to be so awesome :dance:

[edit] and will there be a fast forward button? Would be very helpful in testing levels and slow contraptions.
