Default What Will Happen To SEIV

What do you think will happen to SEIV once SE V comes out? Do you think people will continue to play it or pretty much right it off and stick to the new?

I for one am hopeful that people will continue to play SEIV as it is a great game. I know that many of the PBW game will more likely than not continue through to there conclusions, however no new games will start.

We all have invested a huge amount of time into SEIV and I am sure we will all do the same for SE V. But turning our backs on SEIV, something I do not want to see happen, would be a crime in my opinion. Then again I could be wrong an no one really asked me so there.

You are having pre-post-partum blues. SEIV will slowly disappear, if SEV is any good. I know where I'll spend my time.

Not really, I am just wondering what others think will happen. I predict a sudden flurry of SEIV disks on Ebay and other auction sites.

For me, I will keep my disk and wish to be burried with it when I kick off.

Certainly, unless portable, there will be a LOT of shipsets and mods that would go to waste...that would be a shame .

It all depends on the Game. If it is a quantum leap like SE4 was, then I think there will be a big player turn over again. SE4 guys will, for one reason or another, wonder off. But a new generation of SE5 peeps will show up. If the game is more of a natural transition, then the SE4 gang will stay around and there will still be a bunch of newbs.

When I look around, I donít see many of the old SE3 people, most have moved on. Some because of RL and some because they didnít like SE4. The one thing that I hope for is a well tested release. When I first started playing SE4, the game locked up a lot. That really made me dislike it. It was very different from what I was used to, and it crashed. A Lot! I would be willing to wait however long it takes to get a good playable Version of SE5.

A SEIV to SEV mod converter should be fairly straightforward for someone to program. The data files probably won't change a whole lot, other than new lines added to various entries.

Aaron has stated that 2d ship images will likely be useable in SEV, though they will look funky next to 3d rendered models...

What a wonderfully rich community you guys have here. I truly wish I'd been a part of it longer, I just got SEIV yesterday. The prospect of everyone moving on in a year or so is a bit of a bummer, but such is progress.

You would be surprised at how many we have sucked into the Dominions 2 forum (right next door)

But I think it will be a Looong time before the SEIV forum dies off.

I can believe it. I began as a Dominions 2 freak, then migrated this way.
