You say that Ascension is essentially giving the player debug powers. Why not just label these God powers and have the stage named Ascension as planned? It just sounds a lot better and more rewarding than debug powers.
Couldn't have said it better myself, +1'd.

Should this form of "God Powers" (Debug instead of God Tools) be integrated into observer mode, or should it be part of an enhanced Strategy Mode that allows going into organism mode for anything, among other things?

Not too sure if older members'd agree with this if they were still around. Then again, there's plenty of time to make and change decisions. Hey, when do you reckon actual programming on Ascension'll start? Our current rate (2 releases a year) makes me reckon... yeah, we'd go into the 2100's, but since things will be picking up exponentially, maybe 2030 as a median?

Well, development would be progressing faster if my motivation wasn't shot. The main problem is that I feel like most of the stuff I've been doing for Thrive recently is a waste of my time. For example, arguing with you guys about Ascension is essentially pointless -- it doesn't get Thrive any closer to the next release. Answering people's questions or responding to suggestions on reddit also doesn't contribute to getting the next release. However, when the devs don't step in, the discussions go in all sorts of strange directions.

So, there's a bit of a conflict there: we devs feel like we should be curating the conversations on our sites, maintaining interaction with fans, etc. However, when so much fan discussion is about stuff that we honestly don't want the responsibility of curating, then that's a problem for all of us: either we tell our fans to shut their yaps, or we don't step in and get involved in discussions where we should. I think the best solution is to split apart the fan discussion and the dev interaction. you don't want to waste your time bringing up things you wanna discuss only to have us come in and be wet blankets, and we don't wanna waste our time doing that either. You guys love this game and that is awesome. We've set up our subreddit as the place for fans to talk about how much they love this game, and most of you are already on there talking about things, so it would be great if we finally freed this forum (the dev forum) from these fan discussions and just had them all in one place, a place where we can easily pick up new fans, like, say, the subreddit.

This thread was originally (eons ago, in its first iterations) meant for bugs etc, but it has now outlived its usefulness, so I have locked it.

I'll figure out some solution that can allow both these kinds of conversations to coexist -- the ones with devs, and the ones between fans. It will (almost certainly) be on the subreddit. So go there, and spread your love for Thrive.

Thread locked.
