All I'm saying is, there are reasons to get the mod out as fast as possible before it becomes far too difficult for the average person to even be able to play it. And after 6 years since this was announced (I think), no one can claim getting it out now is rushing it. There is no rushing anything anymore. Geriatrics in a testudo formation would have moved faster.
I don't begrudge anyone on the team for wanting to get things right, or taking extra care in the details. But they NEED to hear another viewpoint... which many of us are harping at: they don't need to write a treatise every time a proposal is made to make a great game. They don't need pages that take 60 minutes to scroll down of information on every single faction to make a historically accurate portrayal. They don't need to spend 6 years developing a game to be the greatest historical depiction of the classical period.
I guarantee you, just 25% of the research and work they have already done would have resulted in that already. So, going forward, just concentrate on putting it out and stop the endless scholasticism. That, is my viewpoint, and what I am "driving at" is putting it out there (with these technical/compatibility issue concerns) so that this viewpoint is heard. Just saying "omg, i can't wait, googly goo lol!" for 6 years is rather useless input. You may not agree with my assessments, but they are real, and useful concerns to address.
