Thats why one single demo/free version that has all the other features from the other demos would be convienient for players, not to mention the engine update helps with problems. :D
I can see your point but I think if they did release any new demo it'd probably be of the improvements + Nations.

Maybe try not to make personal assumtions of others in the future?
If you read carefully, I did not write that you ARE the kind of person I described. I wrote that you COULD BE (read "HAVE BEEN") such a person, given your post.

I always urge to clarify that. I just had a "feeling" from your words, and no statement of mine was meant to be an insult or an ultimate criticism to your person.

And in fact you tell me, in the following reply, that you are not at all the kind of person who doesn't want to buy a video game.
But please keep in mind that everyone makes assumptions of others hence others's words/actions and this isn't any bad.
What's bad is not changing your assumption when it's evident that it is wrong.

That said... I would have probably reacted the same way as you, but I would have also admitted that my post could produce such an assumption about my person. I hope you understand.

I don't know whether I've been clear enough; it's not always easy to explain such concepts in a foreign language.

°°°

Also I apologize for having mispelled your nickname (I notice it only now), but I couldn't see it while writing my post and so relied upon my [failing] memory. :wink:

I informed about the open beta too late.
But I heard, that there will be 4000 new testers soon.
Will the registration open again, or the 4000 new testers will be selected from the already registred users?
Someone please answer this.

The signup page says it's closed now, but i just got keys an hour ago, so they must be filling the remaining spots from those who signed up when it was open. I saw they had over 20,000 sign up, so there's no need to reopen it.... you snooze you lose.

The game must have gone gold by now, since the release date is so close, so I don't see how they could need more testers if they can't change the game any more anyway.

Nadeo lose more with this than me.
Many of the "beta testers" registred to play, not to test, and search for bugs.
The open beta is good, but the registration is closed too early, and this random selection is bad.
It should be someway like that: Every registred user get a key, but if you not report a bug within X days counted from the registration date, than your key will be deactivated. It would filtered out the useless testers, who just play, instead of searching for bugs.

Is there a platform to get some costum united maps? Or is this not yet allowed?
I would like to see what you have already build.
If allowed, can someone upload his tracks somewhere please?

just checkout the servers in the game and you'll probably find some custom tracks. ;)
