Incidentally, I'm no longer a Firaxian, so I implore the forum mods to remove that title and the firewheel, before I get sued ;)

A couple of points: You're right that some of the team have moved on. I left back in April and am living in Austin, TX now, working for NCSoft. The game's lead programmer, Casey O'Toole, is now working for Bethesda Softworks on Fallout 3. The rest of the team, as I understand it, are busy working on...

As for the linefeeds in the generated XML, that's one of those things that is actually more of a pain than you would think, and since there are plenty of freeware and commercial XML editors that can read those files in and write them out with the linefeeds and tab indentation, we didn't focus on that.

The guide button should have been removed in one or two tool menus, but I just forgot in the holiday rush :( Fix World basically updates the graphics for most of the world entities after you've modified them. It's a very CPU expensive job to re-build all these things that normally don't move once th...

I have no objections to that... can't guarantee that there is a non-destructive way of getting it to work without overwriting core game assets, so you'd be doing it at your own risk, but I don't see why we would have an issue with this...

Don't know what the sales numbers look like for SMR yet, but Pirates quietly sold close to a million units and won numerous Game of the Year awards, despite being passed around and re-released between publishers in the midst of Atari's financial problems a year or two back. Frankly, for SMR to be co...

I should point out the standard disclaimer, that D2D users will need to get their patch from D2D directly, and shouldn't install this patch.

As I mentioned in the past, this patch was primarily a feature patch with particular focus on fixing up the terrain editor we used to make the in-game maps with. There are some other...
