Farewell (almost)
« on: March 14, 2009, 04:41:46 AM »
I guess that if this is the place of the forum to say hello, it is the place to say goodbye.  If not, please excuse me.

Some time ago, I started my own project about building a transport city-building simulation game, maybe inspired by the well-known document by Hajo (I couldn't say for sure, learning Chinese is getting a good part of my memory) and my experience playing with OTTD and other similar games.  In the meantime, I was happily "kidnapped" by this game of ours.  Now, I think it is time to focus on my project again.  I'll be lurking around here but my intention is to be less active and only participate in threads talking about me or my patches.

I would like to thank all of you, specially Prissi, for your dedication.  You're a great community.

For people interested in these matters, let this be my statement that all the code and patches developed by me hitherto and posted in this or the old forums are given "as is" to the Simutrans community (whatever this may mean) and the community is entitled to use, reuse or even abuse them as it sees fit.

Best regards,
Isidoro.

It's a pitty but all we can is to thank you for all your work, specially for implementing the overtaking patch, and wish you good luck in your project. Btw, If you need help with graphics, just ask.... ;)

Isidoro,

it is a great pity to be losing you - your patches and idea contributions have been most worthwhile. I can only imagine the great number of players whose game experience, for example, will be enhanced by your replacing system for vehicles. Very best wishes for your new project: when you have a working alpha version, do come back and let us know about it!

Thank you all for your kind answers.

Vilvoh, if the project arrives to something useful, I'll take your word...  Maybe you receive a message asking for help in a couple of years... ;)
