Veenitkumar. New things are coming every month. You just need to open your eyes a little wider :)
I think you were joking about this "very old" game thing. But if you think that all things that we already have made here during last year - are not enough - please check them again please :)
This new Crysis MP that we have now is at least 3x better than old Crysis MP based on GameSpy. It has 2x more functions than any other FPS multiplayer made in 2014. And it still have many things coming in the future.
The problem is - like Youda said - there are only 3-4 people working on things here - Trying to finish things in their free time. We can't do it all just like that. Sometimes It takes hundreds of hours, weeks and months of work in the evening.
You really don't see brand new maps here? new game modes? new mods? 100% new look of everything? It doesn't look like old Crysis anymore on some servers. Old MP was really ancient, hard to modify, hard to mod, develop.
Now we have many new, almost unlimited server functions for users and admins. Like never before. If things like flexible autodownloader (much, much better than in Crysis Wars) for custom maps, level designer for real-time map building on server side, real time particle effects, random generated jump maps, ranking system, website servers list to check without starting the game, just unlimited possibilities to create new things with Sandbox and Sfw (doesn't work for lazy ones of course) are not enough for you as "new things" - Then I don't know what to say here. Believe me I was dreaming of all that 3-4 years ago already. Now when it's all working - most of people don't even see it.
All these things were not possible in old Crysis MP but you are still calling new MP "very old game" without "something new" (?). It's just crazy. I hope you mean only the basic game not all things added to it during last year. Are you sure you checked at least half of all functions? :)
To tell the truth Veenitkumar I'm afraid you're mistaking this Multiplayer solution with GerCry's patch soulution. Yes that solution is working fine. It's working like old school Crysis. I would agree with you there. Looking and working just like before. Nothing new at all. But not here. C'mon.
Your ideas about "adding something new" are ok. We respect that your'e trying to help. But you probably missed that "something new" has been added already :)- Please check it all again.
Of course new other things will come this year and in 2016 also something. But keep in mind that 3-4 guys max are working on it after school/work. Not 20 people of Crytek during daytime job.
If you want to help please try to make something yourself â€“ like Youda was saying. Ideas are needed.... But I have also many ideas since 2011 - the problem is to have things finally done. Not all that we want is possible to do here. It requires testing, checking and lot of time to put that all together without bugs.
BTW. If you think other new things will make people play here â€“ well we still hope so (yes this hope is kind of irrational). To tell the truth this is what I thought already 6 months ago. This is what we all thought during process of creaton new things and comfortable functions.
Unfortunately we were wrong. Most of people don't care about Crysis 1. For them these new things are just new things added to "that old Crysis - not worth playing MP". They care only if game is new. As you know to really find out how great Crysis MP is - player needs weeks at least. Most of them don't want to try it even for 1 day.
For me and few others here â€“ This Crysis MP is already a Brand New Game. But to see it this way people need to want to look. 99% of so called "gamers" simply don't want to try even. They prefer to stay blind and go with the flow of new promoted, console type cartoonish games. It's their problem. Their fun. We hope some will wake up though :)
I tell you what. We will make many new things here. But for our game and for few of us here. New things that have been planned for years. But we won't make it for those who don't care or just are wondering "play or not play this old cheesy game". We will make new things and promote them in trailers this year. To let people see how amazing this game can be even in 2015/2020.
But if you want "more players" as the main reason for all these hours of our work here - sorry we can't think this way anymore. Because it can end with big disappointment as we have experienced here before. No more :)
But yes. You can be sure Crysis will evolve during next years.[/b] This time without any time pressure. No need to hurry so much right now. We have it all working. It's really amazing thing if you know how to look at it.
One thing that is 100% sure for this year are trailers. The rest is optional in 2015. I don't know about others but I'm working on new MP things already. These things will come in spring and summer this year.
But as I said trailers are the only necessary thing this year. We have done a lot. Now it's players turn. All they need to do is have fun. Is that so much to ask for :)
Thanks for sharing your idea though. Some of that is probably possible to make in the future.
Please check all functions of new Crysis MP. You will like them a lot. I'm sure of it.
See you and thanks again
