  FAQ - Long Awaited
Posted by: StarReaper - 01-29-2017, 11:49 PM - Forum: Diaspora : Mass Exodus - No Replies

1. Is this just another copy cat clone of Diaspora?
A. No this is actually a spiritual successor to Diaspora. We actually went ahead and contacted the old CEO of Altitude UK, and got a signed agreement to use the Diaspora properties. Little did we know when we signed the deal the actual graphic sources files we need to modernize the ships and other graphics didn't exist, or at least he didn't have them. So rather than rebuilding the original game we decided to merge two old project, Diaspora - and Mass Exodus a property I own from the post Diaspora days.

2. What is Diaspora Mass Exodus?
A. DME, is a 2d point and click space game, its quick to learn, easy to play, and will be extremely socially engaging. It will feature ships, multiple galaxies, advanced guild systems, bounty hunting, and a large array of other things to spice up a space game.

3. What from Diaspora has made its way to DME?
A. Ships! Planets, some of the feel, some of the community, the map, the AI groups, all that and more. Also each of those categories will be greatly expanded. For instance the map we kept basically identical, however we plan on launching additional galaxies and connecting them through a single point massive jump game. This way we can expand the player amount per galaxy without breaking up the communities into different separate servers like many MMOs.

4. How are you guys going to get rich off the game?
A. Rich... We wont be running a pay to win Ponzi scheme Smile  That pisses us off and it doesn't represent true gaming. Yes we want to make money, rich is always good theres a few more games we want to start! But we will be doing a few things, we will be selling various ingame content, selling of some ingame currency, other micro transactions and things aimed at saving time in exchange for money, but the amounts we get and the boosts they give will be extremely low compared to a lot of games. We want all players to spend a few dollars a month for premium content rather than having a few big whale players buying victory. We wont stop you from spending $1000s a month on the game, but its not going to buy you victory, just leave you a little lighter in the wallet, but hey by all means! Big Grin

5. What is the release date?
A. Jan 2016. Yes you read that right, last year we had some issues with the first coder and out of frustration I sat on project for a bit dealing with other real life work. One day I picked it back up again and Pato and I have been pushing forward since Oct. with a new code team and they've been rocking it. If we had the budget to pay full time for 3 months they would be done. So funding is a slight issue, were paying for it mostly out of pocket. My company will probably start contributing more money to development in the coming months, we are hoping for a full release June-July. But once again funding slows us down. Smile if anyone wants to donate feel free to PM me, or http://www.gofundme.com/diasporame also we are interested in actual investment in Angry Rabbit Studios, so if you want to own a piece of the company send us your thoughts and will get back to you.

6. Will the game be on steam?
A. Yes we will actually try to put it on steam green light a little closer to Beta.

7. How will things like multi accounting be handled?
A. Have as many accounts as you want per IP address if you have a premium account. Otherwise if we catch players seemingly abusing and having a giant pile of alt accounts we will more than likely remove them.

8. What will happen to a player if they are caught cheating or hacking?
A. All the major calculations are done server side so things like faster engines, or guns wont actually be easy to hack. Either way if we catch you cheating will reset your character and lock your account, if you want your account back so you can keep your ingame name you will let you buy it back for a small fee, but your entire account will be reset. We catch you again the price goes up, a few more times after that you wont be able to afford to buy your name back Wink

9. Disconnecters were a major issue in the first game, will you be countering this?
A. Yes. If you D/C you'll be hanging in space for a little bit Smile and no we wont be doing ingame refunds for D/Cing.

10. What exactly is premium, and how much does it cost?
A. Premium is like a subscription service, when you are subscribed you are scheduled income for us, we are making at least X per month we keep you happy. I don't like to dance around subjects, we need money to survive, need money to advance the game, and need money to work on the next game title, subscriptions are a good way to do that. We would charge probably in the $2-5 range, and what you would get is a host of small things that make life easier. Make a small amount more per trade, research just a little faster, get access to Beta patch testing, purchase new ships in game a littler earlier, get a cost reduction for ingame items or game currency. We will have a full list ready well before release.

11. Why do you have a forum and facebook?
A. We have actually got this one multiple times, forum is super easy to post in and keep track of stuff, and facebook is a good social gathering place. That's why we make you all come to the forum to get your client download links.

12. Will you have PVP and PVE separate servers?
A. No. We will have one server, multiple galaxies you can goto, but all galaxies people can and will shoot at you from time to time. Be smart, get in guilds, run when you have to, and fight when your ready. Or as the first player I ever talked to in the game gave me some friendly advice... "25k or die!" which at the time I told him where he could shove it.... right before he blew me to bits Smile

13. What platforms are you releasing the game on?
A. All of them. PC first, Mac will probably follow right after that, and then we will target IOS and Android. If the game really takes off we would consider Xbox and PS depending on what was involved and if we could still keep the community all on the same servers.

14. What is the current budget? How much more do you need?
A. We are 10-12k into it, some for graphics, some for coding that didn't work, some for hardware, software ect ect. To finish as of the date of this posting, probably 16ish.... maybe a little more/less. Not a lot in the grand scheme of things, but a decent amount. If your wealthy and bored Smile don't be shy!

15. What are the specs for the game?
A. We are not 100% final on that, but we want the game to be played on a cheap off the shelf $400.00 laptop Smile so we are not doing anything insane on the graphics, it will look good, but we are not even scratching the surface of the Unreal engine, which is what the game is being coded on.

These are the major questions we got, if anyone has anymore please post below and will add them into this post!

S.R.

  Sunday Night Update!
Posted by: StarReaper - 01-23-2017, 12:02 AM - Forum: Diaspora : Mass Exodus - No Replies

Good evening folks! Just letting you all know we coordinated with the coder today and hes almost finished the legacy map, jump ranges, and jump scanning. Unlike the legacy game we will not control jump ranges based on your ship, we will make it a researchable item that's effected by your level. So you will actually have to hit a certain level then research the skill to be able to get to the higher jump ranges. The legacy map, scanning, character creation may all be available ...for next weekend. What he will be working on in the next week is AI and reputation backend. We are short a lot of menu graphics we hope to build out over the next couple of months when more funds become available. In the mean time we are trying to keep him busy with other things. So Ai will be implemented and added to the Alpha game. Ai will seek and destroy based on reputation(in beta), will attack, return fire, and chase. So that should be fun and add something extra to do while testing. Once again we thank everyone who tests, donates, and lends a hand. Just to let you know we are spending 500-1000 a week developing as often as we can. May not seem like a ton of money but it adds up fast [Image: 1f642.png]:) This is where I think we will have success where other clones have failed is we actually put our money where our mouths are. You cant get everything for free or donations, and we don't ask anyone to contribute money if we aren't willing to do it ourselves. So all the small donations really do help out, and if you cant donate spread the word! That is so important to the community. More players, more fun. So invite your friends, repost our videos, post our page, do whatever you can to help out where and when your able. Its really appreciated and its going to a good cause [Image: 1f642.png]:) To many video games sit half unfinished these days and the number of independent game companies that actually finish their games is slim. We promise we wont be one of those sad stories. Thanks for being a great community and will keep working hard! Each week to 2 weeks we will make sure to have new improvements to the alpha client and with any luck will be in beta in 3-4 months. Check with the forum for your new client downloads and will notify you on FB as well. Thanks again sorry for the long post super excited to see old faces again. - S.R.
