I think this topic should remain open. From time-to-time we can receive updates on how the development is going, etc..
Surething, I never said or wanted this topic to be closed at any time.
I just find it annoying when people start beating a dead horse by suggesting the same things over and over again.
It's ok to discuss about stuff like new eventing system ideas or possible competitors and so on.
I just don't like it when already confirmed/denied things get posted, mostly totally out of context.
If someone wants to re-post the same things just do it, I won't stop anyone from doing it.
It's just my opinion about things like these.
... But a 2.5D or isometric view would be nice
Wouldn't that technically still require some sort of 2.5D/3D object + environment?
I mean you can currently do "fake" 2.5D games by using modified 2D sprites, I think I saw some developers doing that on the forums.
I've never really touched isometric art or game development though, so I don't really know how it could be implemented into the engine.
