Quote from: cajomi on May 29, 2007, 12:30:18 am@Thank you Jo for this information!!@The GeostationWhy do you mean you have to protect TG2 against my critic?I definitly not want a GeoControl like TG2.
Quote from: cajomi on May 29, 2007, 12:30:18 amI do like work with nodes. It is not the whole concept, the interface in general, but the weak points I mentionend, I would like to see improved.Without that little "you have difficulties" I would not agree complete to what you wrote, but of course the personal way of thinking fits to some software better than to others. But using this small addition, you create the impression, that the weak points are not in the software, here TG2, but in my person and personal preferences. This is a typical and general way, to suppress critic.
Quote from: cajomi on May 29, 2007, 12:30:18 amIn a standard situation: A says to B, that he do not like it, that B is making jokes about him. B answers, hey A, what are your problems? It is a simple rhethorical trick.To avoid misunderstandings, I had first ask you very clear, what you mean.You answered the first question with yes and the second also. So, if you take the whole communication, it is clear, what you meant.

QuoteYou assume that your preference of one way of doing things over another is a weakness???
QuoteHowever it would help if you directly state the nature of your problem from the start of the thread. That way, it may have added my immediate support, particularly with regards my own issues relating to the generation of fractal masks from within TG2 (derived from the landscape fractal itself).
Quote from: cajomi on May 29, 2007, 06:03:05 amThis update policy makes me angry. I had not only paid to push the developement but also to get the benefits of the developement. I am missing those totally.Someone here posted, that it take much time to produce an update. Well, I need about 2 hours for updating GeoControl. I can not believe, that I do that job (updating) better than Jo and Matt. So, that can not be the problem.
Quote from: cajomi on May 29, 2007, 06:52:24 amI really can not understand this behavior. This thread now is really loud, and we have got the information, that it is no freetime project. It was hard work, to get this single information, a very important one.
Quote from: Buzzzzz on May 29, 2007, 08:05:17 amHowever on the pre-purchase page is states: You may purchase a commercial license for the Technology Preview which will remove these feature restrictions and allow you access to more frequent development releases of Terragen 2. You will also be entitled to a free upgrade to a final release of Terragen 2 when development is completed.

I will have to bring this to the attention of the others so that web page can be updated. As far as I am aware the official statement of what the license entitles you to is on this page, which is the pre-purchase page :<http://www.planetside.co.uk/terragen/tg2/prepurchase_tg2.shtml>Regards,Jo

Thanks for pointing it out, I will let the others know about it. I apologize to Cajomi in regard to that, although as far as I am aware the official description of benefits to purchasing a commercial license is what is set out in the actual pre-purchase page.Regards,Jo
Quote from: Harvey Birdman on May 29, 2007, 09:36:32 amYou know, Jo, this entire misunderstanding (if that's what it is) could have been prevented by more frequent communication with your user base. You've chosen a business model that has you accepting payments for an incomplete product with the understanding that this early purchase is going to entitle the users to updates. The frustration you've witnessed here stems, I think, not only from the fact that there haven't been updates with the frequency users would like, but also from the fact that inquiries here have met with absolute silence. You seemed upset about my questioning the number of hours per week dedicated to the project. What else was I to assume, when no activity is evident re: updates, and there is no communication on the subject? You may feel you don't owe the users explanations. I would argue that you do owe us explanations of these long delays - you placed yourself under that obligation when you accepted money under this 'technology preview pre-purchase' philosophy. Seems Buzzzzz has found this in writing. Perhaps you should consider a more accomodating attitude towards your paying users instead of running off to change the web page.
