well what a bummer.
it seemed like 7Sixty made promises that firefly did not know of.
in the last news we reported about 7Sixty wrote about they gonne release a big patch in November bringing new content for the game.
but now it seems that on the firefly forums itself they told me they knew nothing about such a patch.
well, it seems stronghold 3 was just a waste of 12 hours of true will to push on, and 50 euro's.
well, take it this way, for a big attraction park you also pay this kind of money and there you stand a lot of time just in a line.
still the though sucks..
one of the bigges thing that keeps bothering me is the fact the tey forgot to give a range bonus for terrain heights. Its so essential in a RTS medieval game to have elements like this. But nothing is less true, in the current state the game is in, it does not matter if your archer fired downwards from a 100 foot cliff or shoots upwards. (check in the download section for stronghold 3 the test map "shooting range")
I guess they must have thought that building fortresses, castles and strongholds back in the old days on top of cliffs and hills was just for the good view.
will check back Stronghold 3 in about 6 months, they might been able to patch it at that time to some decent level.
Good thing is, Anno 2070 is out too and at first release seems 99% bugfree!
will post more on that later on
