Single Status Update
Beta 4.1 is out, fixes broken stuff in Beta 4 . No more possessed editors! Grab it now!
In other news, with 1/3 the team and twice the amount of planned features, Atlas will be done by the end of the year! It will demolish our development time by a whopping 24 months!! Its truly spectacular given the 7 months without updated screenshots or progress updates of any kind.
I was hoping for competition but from what I've been told we're about to get steamrolled. AGD is already waving the white flag. Intersect is going the way of the Exchange!
Atlas actually being released would be sweet - we'd love the competition and that'd make both engines better - but as it stands Atlas is nothing more than a design concept.
A concept allows everyone to create unusually high expectations for the engine which is compounded over months and months without news or updates. (Of course there are no bugs, there can't be any without a release!)
At the end of the day Atlas news and updates no matter how small would only benefit Eclipse, more people would gain interest in the engine and participate in their community thus building value in both. The total lack of updates should scare everyone as there is no incentive to stay quiet unless, of course, there is nothing to show.
At the end of the day there is no way that we could ever compete with your wildest dreams. Let's wait until Atlas has a release, then we can start realistically doing side by side comparisons.
