    Doesn't tell us much. "We have plans going forward" is what they said in October. I don't doubt that they've got something, but I'm not expecting anything soon.

    I'd hardly call Tiy's beard 'trash'

    What does Tiy's beard have to do with anything?

    Well even though it wasn't much information at least it was something which i guess is better than nothing at all.

    Better than no news at all.

    Whatever the social climate, this is still the official forum for said game, yet they've neglected it for half a year.
    I wonder, almost. Because it wasn't news so much as "remember that thing we told you like 6 months ago, that we had plans? yeah we still have plans"
    While yes, it is technically news and word from the devs... If the past devblog history is anything to go by, they aren't exactly reliable sources of upcoming information on their own game, unfortunately.
    This was vague and nebulous, there was no actual confirmation of anything other than basically "we still pretty much intend to do something, sometime, eventually... probably. stay tuned!"
    If anything, it makes the wait for actual news all the more unbearable, because it just doubles down on the incorporeal state the development is in currently.
    This could very likely turn out like last time they said there would be news soon... 6 months ago. You can understand my wariness, I'm sure.

    Bet 10 doubloons on Half-life 3 being first!

    Which implies that none of those will ever happen, because let's face it, HL3 isn't gonna happen.
    ...So by that logic, none would be first, since being first would imply that it would happen...
    And as such, HL3 wouldn't be first, but also would be first, since in a list of 0 things, the 0th is technically first and last while being neither...
    Which as such, forms an infinite loop of it being both and neither at the same time, which means...

    ...Which means I'm delving far too deep into a completely arbitrary linguistic paradox.

    Because of an unpleasable fanbase no less.

    Actually, the devs pulled it themselves, though players were well to point out that they wanted something less gimmicky and segregated after getting mechs and terraforming. I for one hope for something that expands the universe rather than bottles it.

    My initial point is that announcements and speculation for 1.4 began almost 18 months ago. If anything, we have moved backwards since then on what to expect. That cannot be faulted on the fans.

    So, the game is officially "finished"? There will not be more content, I suppose.

    No. The developers have said that they have plans for the game, though not what those plans are or when they'll be released

    I don't know if that's entirely the case. The initial response to the bounty hunter update was pretty positive, just based on the comments from this blog post:

    https://community.playstarbound.com/threads/1st-september-stop-right-there-criminal-scum.137107/

    I think the fanbase became angry due to the really long time with no update on the status of the game, followed by the cancellation of the update entirely

    @lordbociek If the shoe fits... I mean, I consider myself a fan, but you don't see me whining.

    Chill brother Polak. We're all in the name of having the game not forgotten, and actually updated to that glorious number 4 on the end! (And getting dumplings renamed to pierogi cough cough)

    What kawa was trying to say is that Starbound community is a little bit vampiric. While we are very cute and nice and other things while the devs work on the game- we literally LUST for any whisper of the devs about SB itself. Hence the discussion.
