Title: I have very many questions
Post by: HaloFan6234 on September 05, 2019, 08:16:19 PM
Hey, i have MANY questions that i'd like to ask :)

(1) Why is the forums still being hosted? Craig said he was gonna take the forums down didn't he? Was there a change of mind?
(2) Why is total miner still on the steam store if development is cancelled then why is it still there?
(3) People have been saying Craig is possibly coming back is this true?
(4) What's the future for this amazing game? Will there even be one at all?
(5) The multiplayer mod is broken i think when trying to join i get an infinite loading screen and the ping is ridiculously low like in the minus of millions

I HAVE NOTHING AGAINST CRAIG KEEPING THE GAME UP ON THE STORE OR KEEPING THE FORUMS UP I AM JUST CONFUSED

As far as the questions go, I can only answer #1. I've been keeping it up pretty much just because I like them and want them to stay up. Nothing exciting, just that I wanted to.

(2) Why is total miner still on the steam store if development is cancelled then why is it still there?
The only one who would be capable of removing the game is Steam/Valve and Craig. Valve is unlikely to remove the title, especially as there are many others in a similar situation in which have been remained on the store. Craig has seemingly left and is not intending to return, likely forgetting the store page and/or having no reason to take it down.
(3) People have been saying Craig is possibly coming back is this true?
Always assume any and all rumors to be false. Nothing implies such outside of typical gossip.
(4) What's the future for this amazing game? Will there even be one at all?
With Craig having been almost entirely silent since his leaving, the best scenario would be community running the game with the risk of it being taken down if Craig decides to later on due to legal matters. Otherwise, there is minimal future for it.

The Piknet mod was not made by Craig. Piknet was created by a modder called XBLToothPik but I believe it is Stoneart who keeps the Piknet servers up. The issue you're having may be able to be resolved by something as simple as a restart on the servers. You can get in touch with Stoneart about this via the Discord where he is always around!
