    Pretty much storing it, as of now and working on some basic coding on free time. Art hasn’t been discussed for some time.

    Breaks my heart. I thought for sure we would see this game completed.

    Anything happening with the coding? Did the whitewood ever flip?

    Soo sad.... Even more the designs of the 3dprinted parts never saw the day of light....

    I thought so too.. I followed this thread almost every day. Sad to see it just go poof.

    Maybe we should petition that they start this project back up again?

    Yes, yes i will sign it right now. The project was making amazing progress and I am surprised it came to a screaching halt as there seemed to be alot of passion involved.

    *Click* scroll down...... And nothing new. Damn it! Between this and the wizard blocks post I'm always disappointed.

    They should release the models open source if it's actually a dead project.

    I don't understand why everyone feels entitled to someone's hard work just because they don't complete something, don't feel the need or never intended to sell it. why can't everyone just be happy that they were willing to share their progress and include us?

    I can speak for must of us here. We loved the high quality build, detailed updates, and simply wanted to see his dream machine flip! No way should he dump all the hard work. He’ll be back.

    I didn’t read that comment as entitlement- more just saying if the project is dead (is it truly dead??) why waste all that work? If it’s put up open source maybe someone wants to take a stab at completing it with what’s been done. I don’t see any problem with that.. this wasn’t a production machine, homebrew is all about sharing info and helping each other.

    Everyone doesn't. I personally think that sharing non-commercial stuff makes the world a better place. I do it all the time with software and PCB designs. Hell, we wouldn't be having this conversation without a stack of open source software residing on the pinside server.
    If they don't want to, that's fine, too. If it were me, and the project was well and truly dead, then I would release the files with a non-commercial license, hoping to see someone bring it home.

    Of course, since this is not an original theme, some of the designs might infringe upon commercial IP(intellectual property), so it may all be a moot point anyway, as sharing it publicly might expose them to legal action.

    I thought you could share stuff you designed/altered - as long as you weren’t profiting?

    Quoted from Mbecker:

    I think you could certainly share the 3d models. Go on thingiverse, people are always uploading things that are technically licensed. I don't know that they got the code to the point where there is a lot (if any) footage from the movie.

    Honestly I think this project could potentially continue on so long as there is someone managing the project. I worked remotely on two projects (IE I did all the art and sounds, Hugh did all the work of coding/wiring):

    So is this a dead project or just in extended stasis?
