Gawd dang, it's been a while!

Postby Luke1000 on Wed Feb 09, 2011 1:24 pm

Hello contraptioneers!

Just thought I'd post for the 1st time in 3 years! It's certainly been a while - Millions of users on the forums compared to previous hundreds, even more graphical updates and adverts, and who knows what else?

You do, that's who. Anyone care to tell me what's happening in the world of FC these days? =3

Wow. Hey Luke.

A company called inXile bought up the game from Colin (pacifist), now it's with a company called Sparkworkz (same company? I forget). They released FC2, which kind of sucks. They all gave up on us over here and don't really update anything anymore.

On a side note, there's not that many of us left, but we're all really really good at the game now. Check out some of lord_hamybal's stuff if you want to see what the standard in brown solutions is. That's about all I got.

- jdel


edit: looks like you left around the time just before the game got HUGE... it exploded in popularity for a while. So this probably feels just how you remember it.

I don't. Although I only lurk and really haven't posted much at all in the past few months, it seems to be all a happy circlejerk now.
Smaller communities are better.

Sparkworkz is just a division inside inXile Entertainment for specifically online games. Hope that clears things up.

I miss the days back in college when I actually had time to play this game during the day.

I dunno, Dark Eagle, you signed up over a week before me and I'd say I was there during the rough beginning.

I just looked this up yesterday to see what has come of it but couldn't really get anything to work right for me to see my old designs. I miss being able to have free time to play this but alas, it is what it is

I have the free time to play this, I just suck at it so much that I don't bother.

Hello, fellow forumers. I've come back from the far reaches of the internet, where Gabe Newell and Shrek are worshipped, to this place.

My name is Rule03. And I am a time traveller.

Basically what I'm saying is... I'm back, after years of absence. I forgot about this forum until I went through old files in a computer and found my profile pic.
