Longtime lurker here.

No new updates since over two months, the forum is as good as death (last post was a month ago). What happened? Is there still hope? Someone aproved my account, so someone has to still be there.

I'm still around myself, I'm just not active because in part due to SSC being early alpha (maybe pre-alpha? my memory wanes) and also in part due to ratakari (the mind behind SSC) being rather reclusive when he gets into making SSC XD this is not the first time he's gone months without an update, it's just that because the dev team is so small it takes quite a long time for ratakari to come out with content with substance (that is to say, an update that's more than just "made some good progress today, things are really coming along"). yeah, it is a pain to wait for so long for any new stuff on a game with such a promising concept but since I've discovered this game around two years ago now I've seen the game make progress, real progress, it's just so hard to see with all that empty space in between

as for hope, still plenty of there here, in my mind anyway, I always check the forum for a new content update every single day I can. whether it's due to faith or muscle memory, is anyone's guess though XP

Ok, thanks. Guess I´ll have to wait then. Was jsut worried because it´s rare to see a creator AND the community falling silent.

if I was gonna give my opinion on a good time to "get worried" about silence I'd have to say, with all my experiences with early access games and kickstarter projects gone wrong, 8 months is the best mark.

there are a few exceptions of course, such as starbound which didn't update for a whole year but then dumped a monster of an update on it's players. or hawken which almost died due to some issues with it's previous dev crew but then, again, a year later suddenly picked up this time with a new, more active and honest team leading the charge.

from what I seen, ratakari just gets lost working on SSC so I would think anything more than 8 months and it becomes reasonable to worry about his health ">.>

i just wanted to say that you guys shouldn't worry about SSC, is having good progress and is looking awesome. the only thing is that this forum is a bit abandoned. Ratakari (At least i think that is him) is posting from time to time on SSC's Facebook.
Look at this:

I do wish there would be at the very least a once a month update............. this lack of any feedback really makes the game feel dead and I am starting to regret backing it.......

Yeah, I don´t get why developers don´t give a short "We are still alive" post every once in a while. Wondered this with many productions. People often say they are busy with the game but how can you be to busy for a 5 minute post? Same thing happened with a game about inteligent robots which I backed a while ago. It just silently died. Hope this won´t happen here.

well bear in mind - some games are busy - example some developers might forget to update regularly - its doesnt mean game is dead
