They went to the GDC so problably no update this week :). The main issue is not the LACK OF UPDATE but the lack of information regarding the updates and the route this game is going. Not that it bothers me but i would love if they could have someone just to take care of the website updates and the community interaction. I totally forgot the name of this function but it should be a must for FP.
A simple post on playrust "no update this week as we are going to gdc but check these things out…etc etc etc " would be awesome.
Having someone to post the updates every once in a while or at least interact with the community would be awesome. I know garry and the devs are doing but i dont think everyone keep following their twitter and every social network they use just to know if there will be an update or not :|.
About the UI not looking that appealing : Garry mentioned that the UI is kinda holding them back and limiting a lot of stuff. I think it was the same thing with the sky and its problably the same thing with a lot of stuff they use that they need to work on. I supose they need to take care of those stuff first before adding any new real content to the game. With the new sky we can have weather change,biomes etc. With the new UI we can have a lot of new stuff as well.
Honestly… this game has so much potential and so many things that can be done to it that most of us check trello and forum on a regular basis just to find out what they are working on.
