Doesn’t this give you instant access to the alpha (and then beta when available): https://store.uberent.com/Store/PreOrder?titleId=4 I’m keen to give it a go shortly, just need more free time!
Yes indeedy! I did that a couple weeks ago (even released a couple mods). Alpha was one game, beta is proving to be another. Theres a huge influx of new players & new skill levels, new drama. But beta is worth buying, since its just out today.
Same here, oh so many moons ago !
Totally immersive at that time, albeit have not played it for years. then went onto the entire C&C collections inc Tiberium etc. But none of them really matched Dune 2000 in terms of gameplay, it was just so so so addictiveRTS are deffo the best games to get into !
Dune 2000. Favorite RTS game next to Total Annihilation. So awesome.
There’s also Castle Story & Stonehearth to keep an eye on. Timber & Stone.
If you’re a Windows user, theres a very interesting city sim coming out: http://www.shiningrocksoftware.com/
Oh. And of course War for the Overworld. http://store.steampowered.com/app/230190
RechargeMedia saidHow has the alpha been? I wasn’t in on that so I have to wait for the official beta release, but it seems it’s been pretty well off. I’ll probably be at work when they officially release the beta, but I’m keeping my eye out for it
Gah. This game is awesome. Beta was just released, and I’ve been playing the alpha a little bit. Definitely worth picking up if you can.
You can smash planets. Into one another. Its sodding awesome.
In all seriousness of course theres a LOT of bugs; if you’re expecting spit ‘n polish like a fully functional lobby or that balance nonsense the alphas keep going on about you’re going to be disappointed. But if you can overlook that, with the beta coming out officially today get in on it. Cause… Smashing planets.
Gah. This game is awesome. Beta was just released, and I’ve been playing the alpha a little bit.

Thanks a lot michaeldale; the form builder was designed to directly alter the database achieving a fairly well formed database – http://imgur.com/n8SY1j2 – sadly, there’s still a lot to be done.
While I did investigate Freelance cockpit some time ago to achieve my goals, there were a few things lacking that I wanted to achieve. But yes, in many respects its similar.
Subversion? gasp I didn’t know people still used that.
I’ve been toiling away for longer than I’d care to admit working on the core foundation of a project I finally quit freelancing to write. I’m at a point where I can start showing some of the functionality. I plan for this app to:
- Project management (high level, no gantt charts or other such)
- Accounts (Companies) and Clients (Individuals) management
- Time tracking
- Tasks & Todos
- Interaction between client & team
- Client/Account/Project portal
- Tickets (Bugs) management (with Envato purchasers support)
- Billing, estimates & retainers
- Codewise, written to support PHP 5.2+, allows for plugins & traits & event hooks – should be possible to add/modify functionality without hacking existing code & breaking the auto-update feature
And more, of course, that I won’t bore you with.
I’m writing this because I needed a few things that some other apps (both Envato & abroad) did very well, but nothing that really catered to a small agile team or an individual like myself. I wanted an all-in-one solution. But the biggest part about this is modifying any CRM has always been particularly hard for me, hence the concept of Forge.
I invite you to check out the video that I’ve just recorded tonight at https://vimeo.com/74505526 – watch out for falling rocks! I’ve been programming over a decade but I’m afraid I’m not much of a designer.I do have some questions for the Envato community though:
- Do you use github to version your code, or another service? Do you host internally or thirdparty?
- How important is in-app communication in an app such as this for your team; surely you communicate via email/skype; would having an audit trail be useful to you?
- For fellow programmers, what things do you need to help you modifying an app to suit your needs?
- For those of you that sell on Envato, what kind of support tools do you need?
Feedback & ideas are welcome.
The framework you use is irrelevant. There are a great deal of avenues. It is your responsibility as a developer to decide which one to use.Your first step is to evaluate your code. There are many options available.
- http://pear.php.net/package/PHP_CodeSniffer/ PHPCodeSniffer, configured to use PSR-0, PSR-1 & PSR-2 as the default rule sets.
- http://phpmd.org/ PHP Mess Detector – Looks for algorithmic over-engineering and other nonsense.
- http://sourceforge.net/projects/rips-scanner/ A static analysis tool that runs as a web app.
- https://github.com/jokkedk/webgrind Webgrind is a Xdebug profiling web frontend in PHP5.
- https://code.google.com/p/skipfish/ Skipfish – It’ll crawl your site to build a sitemap & then blast it.
- https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_Mantra_-_Security_Framework Mantra – In my opinion, the holy grail of browser based security testing. Its basically Firefox with a slew of tools.
- https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_Zed_Attack_Proxy_Project OWASP ZAP – A proxy that does your typical intrusion & attacks.
Hope this helps.
At risk of being publicly pilloried for not suggesting a Codecanyon script, have you considered Wordpress? Sounds like it’ll do everything you need.
I’ve been following this thread (and the ensuing aftermath) with interest. I’m a new author and have been working on my first item – albeit grandiose – that I plan to post to Codecanyon. I’m concerned but not totally scared off.
Some years ago, I was reading Founders at Work (a fantastic book about startups in their early days) and I seem to recall a story about Paypal. They had all sorts of fraud issues, and it took them a great deal of time to address it; some might say they never did because they still have issues.
As a lurking community member on the fringes of “Authordom”, I have recognized that Envato is aware of the issue and taking steps to address it. But I don’t think its too unreasonable to think that while posting my item on Envato marketplaces garners me a fair deal of visibility, I should also be moderately protected from exactly these kinds of fraudulent acts.
If its not terribly bold to ask, what kind of steps can we expect to see from the cats at Envato to address these issues? Are there any data-mining techniques that you plan to apply to identify fraudulent patterns, or perhaps third-party software? Have you corresponded with the payment processors to discover what further steps you can take? Have you considered billing address & IP comparison, or detected anonymous proxies? Are there any indications of high-risk patterns or countries of origin?
Either way, I hope to complete my rather daunting project sometime in the near future. If nothing else, at least I’ll be able to vent my frustration too! But hopefully not.
Just a heads up that Bootstrap is now out of RC, and a final release has been posted – 3.0.0.
It should also be noted that Bootstrap3 drops support for IE7 and FF3.6.
