    We're doing a Q and A! I'm sure you all have questions you are dying to ask us about ToA: Exile, so reply here with up to 3 questions each that you would like us to answer about the game. We'll have them answered the weekend of February 4th.

    1. Will a Dragon be able to interrogate another Dragon?

    2. Will there be water currents that could affect boats or swimming?

    3. Will environmental conditions affect the rate of decay of things like metal, cloth, leather, or wood?

    Hmm...

    1. How far are you going to go with the mechanics and animations of flight?
    2. Would you consider in the future a system for water travel?
    3. How much freedom does the structure building system allow?

    1. How intricate will melee combat be?
    2. When is testing? :mad:
    3. How hard will it be to obtain metal armor if you were to start anew?

    1. Out of all the dynamics in your game, what is the most problematic but rewarding development issues to overcome?

    2. I plan to play a ranger/bandit with some of my rapscallion friends and to start a rogue syndicate - how much damage can a small group of players do to an economy, local traffic, etc?
    I'm aware this question is very subjective but I would like to hear a staffers response and/or plan for them self.
    3. Do Raknar taste like chicken?

    These are all great questions, guys! I can tell already that I'll need to get a jump-start on these to have enough time to do your questions justice!

    1. How intricate will smelting be? In particular, will the making of steel use similar processes to the making of damascus steel?

    2. Will there be any form of 'town' system, similar to that of what wurm operates on with regards to defending a settlement... In particular, what will be done to prevent large towns from being destroyed overnight by a dragon? (when everyone is asleep)

    3. What was the most interesting system to implement while working on ToA?

    Edit: had some typos

    1) have you considered economy influences being implemented similar to Star Citizen? AI plays a large role; the players influence on the economy is essentially divided by these invisible economic forces.

    2) for those of us who paid for the alpha and beta, I know we're not receiving it... but you can't guarantee the MMO and its ages away, anyway. Very frustrating and it feels like the money was stolen away from me. I'm sure others feel the same. How do you plan to bring back all the others who left after the failed KS?

    3) besides the types of races we can play, what do you think most sets apart ToA from other survival games? Races play a part, but I don't think they alone can win the game it's way with stingy gamers

    1. In what ways can races interact with each other in a diplomatic/friendly way, if there is any?

    2. How will the group systems work for Raknars and Dragons?

    3. Give us your expectations for how the flying mechanics will work, such as if there's going to be a momentum and aerodynamic system, like diving and grabbing? And if this extra part is allowed, how it will effect their ability to hunt?

    Can we ask more than three questions? And, if so:

    1. Can buildings be designed with accessable rooftops so we can maximize our use of space?

    2. Are dragon enchanted gem traps still in, but not in Exile?

    3. How high can a tower get, in terms of floors? (assuming max skills, best materials, drafting etc.)

    So, I hope I'm not too late.

    1. Do you know what you still need to do before the game is ready for release? I mean which and how many road points need to be finished? ( not asking for a date, just if these are all the roadmap points that need to be finished or how many more will come if not before release)

    2. Will there be an option to quickly change from one equiped item to another without entering the inventory, but just swapping it with the item that is belted? ( like you are mining, but you get attacked by a wolf, so you grab quickly the axe from your belt). (will it be like a short animation or instant?)

    3. Will a house need a fireplace to keep it warm? Or is it warm(er) automatic?

    I got more then 3 questions, but hit my limit there..

    These are totally my three original questions, and were not stolen from anyone else.

    1. How are you all doing?

    2. Is an OS X client actively being developed and tested?

    3. If not, why?
