  1. This is the coolest thing ever. Well done Jeb!
  2. Here it is, Games Industry Professional (She/Her) Former Community Manager - Kerbal Space Program (2011 - 2013) Former CM - Legends of Aethereus , Heliborne, Grumpy WitchFormer US Navy Medical Professional - Disabled Veteran, Honorable Now that that is out of the way, all of my points still stand. The level of down right abuse I see here, coupled with the level of confidence displayed by those who've not worked a single day in this industry bothers me a great deal. This team is talented, dedicated, and passionate. I believe in them, and game development is HARD. I would beg you all to have some patience. Wait till the final product is in your hands and then make your critiques, but do so without the downright abusive tone. Please?
  3. Literally all of this. For all 4 games I've worked on. All of it. 100% accurate.
  4. 1. I am not a Sir, it's litreally in my signature. 2. I have no comment on their communication and marketing strategy at the moment. 3. I do not work for PD or Intercept so I would be entirely unable to answer any questions like this.
  5. Yes. 4. Kebral Space Program. Legends of Aethereus. Heliborne. Grumpy Witch. I am also in talks to become a Senior Community and Media Relations manager for the US arm of a AAA studio tomorrow morning. Also, all four of the projects I worked on were Unity Engine projects. I've also done QA/Testing and been a QA Lead, again, for Kerbal Space PRogram, for which I was one of the people who started the Experimental Testing Team and Media Teams for the game whose forums you are on asking me this as you seem to have not read my signature.
  6. I have no idea what to say to this, other than, this reads like someone whose never worked on a single software or game project before.
  7. Cool! I'm also talking about the start of the calender year in jan and the end of the fiscal year in march (which is 3 months apart) but please do go on correcting me and being pedantic.
  8. Oh? That? No. That doesn't happen. Especially when a project "goes gold" yeah, thought you were talking about something else.
  9. Yes actually, code bases can and do change, a lot over a the course of the whole development cycle. Re-writes, Forks, Engine Updates and Changes, Code Cleanup passes after an Audit, etc. This does in fact happen, often.
  10. Take 2 Interactive's Fiscal Year ends in March. Fiscal Year 2023 Ends March 31st 2023. People seeing that the game was pushed to "Q4 FY 2023" think that means the game will launch in Oct - Dec 2023 which is now how Fiscal Years work. When I say "Off By 3 Months" I mean, that T2's "Fiscal Reporting" for the "New Fiscal Year" Starts April 1st, meing their Fiscal year is "Off" by about 3 months compared to the Calender year.
  11. Not for T2 it's not, their Fiscal year is their own. FY's can change as @adsii1970said
  12. What Is a Fiscal Year (FY)? A fiscal year is a one-year period that companies and governments use for financial reporting and budgeting. A fiscal year is most commonly used for accounting purposes to prepare financial statements. Although a fiscal year can start on Jan. 1 and end on Dec. 31, not all fiscal years correspond with the calendar year. For example, universities often begin and end their fiscal years according to the school year. What does this have to do with KSP2? For starters, T2's Fiscal Year 2022, as noted here, ended on March 31st 2022. (Making the Jan-March 2022 Timeframe Q4 FY 2022.) https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20220516005693/en/Take-Two-Interactive-Software-Inc.-Reports-Strong-Results-for-Fiscal-Year-2022 This places us firmly in "Q1 FY2023" right now as I type this post. Meaning, that when you see the game slated for "Q4 FY2023" that is a Fiscal Year that is going to End by March 31st of the Calender Year of 2023. In short, their Fiscal Year is off by about 3 Months or so. On a side note, the Steam Update that showed the Date being 29DEC2023 is a place holder. That happens. I've personally set the launch dates for 3 games on steam, (Heliborne, Legends of Aethereus and Grumpy Witch) and that really is just that, a place holder date. The rampent speculation here isn't helping anyone, nor are the insults, attacks, and outright abuse thrown at the team for making a very very hard decision. I trust Nate, I trust this whole team to do right by what Harv, C7, Mu, Nova, Skunky, PDX and Me all started all those years ago. Remember, that there are also KSP1 Dev Team members working on KSP2 now, and I promise you that they want KSP2 to be the best it can be as well. I am asking for some paience and understanding is all, some temperance and a little bit of faith and good will. Pretty please? Sincerely, C. Rayne Formerly KSP CM 0.8 to 0.20
