The number of "games in the last 24 hours" dropped to less than 20 yesterday. We have to do something about it! :D
I thought about a news on, something like this.
It would require some 3D-guy (Ringwaul?) to write a short text about how he uses Blender to create OC graphics. (Could be just two sentences) I could contribute a screenshot of the GLSL-shaded chemlab inside Blender.
Since the Blender community is rather huge and the BlenderNation news are shown on Blenders homepage, this could bring a lot of new players for OC.
(Maybe "This game is just awesome!" or something similar in the last line, to push the folks into the right direction.) ;-)

But at least let's wait for the bugfix release :)

Indeed it's good to advertise more, so if you want to do that, everyone here would be happy about it probably.
Please do note, that whenever you do it in "our" name please ask here first, like this :)

Yes, well at some point after the first release with melees we had a few days of 200+ games, but I think if you want
to have people playing continuously you need a league.

So, why is it gone?

The league?

I think that code is partially closed source, also we don't have any account system here.

I think it's a great idea I personally think that OC needs the publicity, but first get approval from the rest of the OC "workers" like Maikel said.

I think it should be more obvious that the game isn't finished yet. It nowhere gives you a hint that it's work in progress. It onle says in the main menue 3.5.1 Delta (or something). And "Stable version 3.1" not only sounds like it's done, it sounds like it's 3.1 times done. Why isn't it 0.3.1 or something? Or have a big fat Beta or Alpha sign on it? So people know to expect bugs on the one hand, but also more releases, updates, bugfixes and new content on the other hand.

Because OpenClonk will never be truly finished :)

What if we start making expansion packs?

And by expansion packs I mean extra content; not removing the airship/airplane from the main release and selling them as DLC for €5.

Extra content: Hats!

Eh, I don't know about that. I don't really frequent blendernation anymore; just popping into a mostly unrelated forum to say, "Hey guys play our game please! C: <3" seems weird to me. If it was a showcase of a game made completely in blender, sure...

>popping into a mostly unrelated forum

But it's not a forum, it's a kind of news blog about Blender.

>If it was a showcase of a game made completely in blender, sure...

There are plenty of other games featured which use Blender for the models only and have an own game engine, like OC. There is even one where they used Blender just for the trailer! Some more examples: 1 2 3 4.

Ah, ok. I was confusing the site with
