    so i been playing empyrion since 6.x but never really could get into it, then 7.0 hit and this happened


    what i beg of you is to find time and make a 8.0 trailer showing of mainly the planets and of course the update as a whole, the 7.0 trailer think ive watched 20 something times now and always excites me to keep coming back and play my favorite game!

    so i beg the devs to make a 8.0 trailer ether as epic as the 7.0 one or what ever, i just want it to happen, anyone else agree with this!?

    Wow. That is a fantastic promotional. And of course, having played the game I know that is exactly how the game looks, feels and works, unlike other games that "photoshop" the hell out of them.

    With all the features coming, it's definitely worthy of a trailer video.

    I'm planning on making a preview video of my own, so even if they don't make an official one, there'll be an unofficial one to share. :)

    It's nice and all, but it's really just fluff, the game should be able to stand on its own. I'd rather them not delay Alpha 8 by a week just so they can make a video.

    LOL
    1) the game wouldent be "delayed" by a video that could take less then 5 hours
    2) fluff is always a good "icing on the cake" why the hell not have it?

    Videos can take a long time to make, but I assume the people who would make it aren't the same people working on the programming. I would love a new trailer or even video previews in general but it will be on the experimental branch soon enough and then we can all make our own videos. :D

    Ok, i voted also "no".
    Because i think other things (virtually anything) are more important than a video that will be obsolete in a few months.

    I'm with Neal on this one. We are still alpha...... and the release of 8 is still looming...... no confirmed dates. So, no, we don't need a trailer.... If you make one on your own time, then thats good for you, but really things can still change, so it may
    ...... I like your enthusiasm though, and encourage you to make what you want.... Don't wait for approval if you are passionate about something.

    Apparently some are not interested in attracting new players to Empyrion. I'm pretty certain that is the exact opposite of what the devs want. And yes, trailers do attract new players. That is the purpose of a trailer, to appeal to and attract new audiences/players.

    The more people playing now, during alpha (and beta), the easier it is for the devs to detect, track down and eliminate bugs and defective coding. Sure, there will always be bugs, no one is perfect. But! The fewer bugs at full release, the better.

    Perhaps, but how will an obsolete trailer help draw people in?

    Where did I say anything about a new trailer being obsolete? New trailer draws new people. The more trailers over time allows people to see the game development progression as well. A factor that does figure in for many people. Think advertising. The strategy works.

    there only saying no because they dont care for a trailer, they have a right to that but what makes them blind is what you are saying, exactly this, the trailer is not ment for you its ment to get more players "new" players into the game, main reason why i want one is for the eye candy but this is more practical.
