    Ok, so i have read as much as i could find on this, but i probably missed a lot.

    Basically, you guys started a company, and is now working on the bringing DFO back under ROA flag, and i read that there is talks about buying the license for DFO from AV, but my question is, why would they sell it as long as they have DF:UW up?

    And since you dont have the license, what exactly are you guys "working on"? Also, are you guys doing it as a hobby project, or full time?

    I have so so many questions and i almost feel shaky when thinking about being able to play DF again!

    thankful for anyones answers and reply's!

    Best regards

    They need money

    Doing all we can do without having the actual code, which may actually surprise most people with what's going on on a day to day basis. Acquiring the code hasn't been as simple as okay here's the money give us the code, soon TM. ;)

    It's a "volunteer project" at the moment, not because of the time being spent, but as noone is making money, but like I said everyone is doing everything they can and the team has dedicated a tremendous amount of time towards trying to make this a reality. I'm sure everyone would love to make it full time. That depends on if we can provide you with a product you deem worthy enough to give us your hard earned money for.

    I hope I'm not overstepping my bounds here, Andrew can give you an 'official' answer, I'm just trying to stay out of trouble :p

    Sounds great! I really really really hope you guys get to buy the license. This whole thing sounds like a wet dream to me!

    Thank you for your answer =)

    Once you do, i bet a lot of people would be willing to start paying a subscription to keep things going. Atleast from alpha and forward. I would atleast be willing to do that... Sucks im on parental leave currently and have a lot worse cashflow, otherwise i would be willing to donate some even before alpha...

    keep hearing this 'no code yet'

    theres plenty enough available in the standalone to begin working on right now.

    if for e.g. within a few weeks of this going live theres not an updated world map more like UW i'll very worried. theres fuck tons to work on, even if all u got is 2009 dfo (iirc 2012 versions were found?)

    if literally NOTHING(other than BPG stuff) is being done right now, im worried

    @Leg enD What do you mean updated world map? Like the updated resolution of the map or you talking about actual map changes aka worldbuilding?

    I think the world map was almost perfect in shape and size.

    I meant having an interactive world map in game, removing the need for 3rd party sites

    My post was vague because we are under an NDA, and I'm not trying to step on anyones toes within the company. Just have faith :p

    Looking forward to movement. No ETA on the transfer of code, then?

    Unfortunately we can't really talk about our progress on that specifically because of the NDA.

    The standalone is VERY incomplete. Yes there's been lots gleamed from it but ultimately it's a mess with no reference points anywhere and missing large portions of code. It's also a very old version so while it's useful for a reference and learning tool to the code base it doesn't have much real use outside of that for us.

    There's a surprisingly large amount of work required to get something like this off the ground with a full time paid staff, let alone a volunteer workforce doing this as their passion outside their work day and personal life.
