Probably more than anything having the honor of meeting all you guys and gals through LM and networking to try and bring storylines together. Wasn't always successful but we had some great times and made friends.
This looks fantastic.
From talking occasionally with Staggs and others it seems like this will go great, especially given that he's got tools + the admins and the LM team are clearly closer than ever, and the fact that this team has been around long enough to consolidate and formulate a vision as opposed to last time around when we were all new. Good luck to ya'll and the community, hope it proceeds smoothly.
People don't play for Lore they play for features. Ones which are old and tired on Chernarus. Hence why Chernarus is down population-wise. Craig wrote a Lore for Livonia before he was removed, you should read it instead of posting all over the place about how there's nothing to read. Livonia is a real region that has fascinating history.
We have beaten Chernarus to death, give it a rest.
Cause you're the Green Manalishi with the two-pronged crown
All night dragging us up, or you're bringing us down
Just taking my love, and slip away
Leaving me here, trying to keep from following you...
Things such as that tend to go out the window as long as the Lore gets released. After that as long as people play who cares? And so far they have been, in greater numbers then Chernarus i might add. To be expected somewhat given the winter map. Livonia is new and fresh. And the snow is kinda boring after an hour or two of looking at it.
But as far as somebody taking the initiative to separate the two and actually do it well...
The people who care enough don't have the power and the people who do have better things to do or can't be asked I guess. Although I can only comment on what occurred while I was still in there. I don't pay much attention here anymore so I might be talking out my arse.
Craig is the newest LM and I wanted Livonia to be his flagship project so he could establish himself, at least before I got ushered out.
Best thing to do for separation is to wipe the Lore and set it in a time that is drastically different.
We did one of these last year IIRC, I just took pics and did OOC tools support. Prison Island even on a server optimized with no loot or zombies with 40+ people is laggy beyond the point of being tolerable. Stability may have improved since then, but we still ended up moving it to VMC. It wasn't that bad for me and others, but enough complained to where we moved it.
