We live in time of crowdfunding, don't see a problem to resurrect project with some money infusion. 

People didn't start working on the campaign for money and they didn't stopped to because of it. As Melan already said, it's a time and energy consuming effort and people are doing this in their freetime beneath all the real life stuff they have to care about. I can't really see how crowdfunding would help here :huh:

If i understand correctly maps are finished but you need readables? So why not make a contest? Make a topic.Lets say "diary of a poor citizen" and you put the best one in campaign. Since nobody have much details about campaign they still could not see whole story.

No, it is not a question of readables - rather, a mixture of architecture, scripted sequences, readables, patrol routes, objective work... A host of individually smaller tasks which mostly require familiarity with the project, plus someone to coordinate it (this is also a big thing). We have had people jumping in, doing some work, then dropping out again. Hard to say how we could resolve the problem.

But the seals held strong, and the few did triumph, and the doubters were lain into the foundations of the new sanctum. -- Collected letters of the Smith-in-Exile, Civitas Approved

Sorry to hear that. If I could help, I definitely would. Pity there isn't much of a possibility for me to help speed up the development process on this campaign. :( It would be awesome if it was finished one day.


If I may ask, how much of the campaign is finished at this point, expressed in percents ? :blush: Just curious.
