    You know, these days it is possible for me to log in, and there be noone else online AT ALL. Yet, if I go to jumpgate-tri databse and look at the list of pilots created, it is clear to me many many people were initially excited to see it return.

    Yes, I know the graphics are not exactly fantastic.

    Yes, I know we are all a bit older, families, careers etc so time is not as free.

    But, I plead to you all, get in game, even for an hour. Even if you just do a Drevent, log in, say bugger all, don't launch then log off, it is better than nothing.

    I would even put up with Ambrosius for gods sake. The guys who put this server back up we might not know their intentions, they might not care who logs in or doesn't. But this game has a multiplayer persistent model that exceeds even the games of today. I want to chat to people, help out, do fleety things.

    This is, was and always will be a GREAT game. So stop playing world of tanks or whatever the short term memory span game of the day is, and come back.

    Or we may lose this great game,again.

    I think the problem is the season. People are less likely to play when they could be outside.

    I do agree that even a presence is important.

    For me, Jumpgate is more of a winter game, it doesn't feel that good to play when the sun shines late into the evenings. But I might try to fix my old HOTAS Cougar stick and try it in flux space in a couple of months. :)

    As thankful as I am to our mysterious overlords, the horse is flogged. The game we loved is devoid of its followers.

    Time to put it down I'm afraid.

    Create a lof of rare items - that will make it attractive to log in. As long as almost any equip is available everywhere there is no meaning in gaming at all!

    Well, interesting you say that kingy mate. When we had the brief working Antiflux CP, my goodness did we go for it. We made a shed load, razor worked like a trojan making sure the raw materials were ready and I mined globules for biomass like it was no tomorrow. Such great fun.

    My post does not mean I will give up, I am just so sad not to see some people, inluding kingy, anymore.

    Where is Rail69, I miss him :(
