General / Consider this
« Last post by Looper on October 10, 2017, 09:00:46 PM »
Meiun this is directed completely at you, basically my question is this, would you ever think of releasing the stick online v2 client decompiled with the server? I feel at this point since the game has been dead for many years now, this should be a lot easier for you to seriously think aboutc compared to the old days. There are many game maker fluent people in this community and I知 sure there痴 a good amount of people who you致e come to trust within the community, why not pass the torch to them? Instead of let this game die, which was a one of a kind game, that was played by hundreds of people in its hay day, pass it on to a trusted member of the community with the decompiled client and the server. I知 not talking about v3 but just solely v2. If you could think of doing this then it could open a lot more possibilities for the community, you can have sov3 but why not pass on sov2 for someone else to develop and carry on. If sov2 were to come back up and have semi regular updates and events I知 sure the community would come back over time. Just consider this, if you ever read this for that matter. If you do read this maybe give me some of your feedback from this suggestion. :)

I don't have any expectations that it will. I imagine Meiun has plenty real world responsibilities, and I know that I definitely wouldn't bother maintaining a decade old hobby project used by only a handful of people.

Still, I'm kicking myself for not getting that tiny last bit of experience to hit 100 before it all went down. I still check here often just in case, but it's unrealistic to expect someone to invest more time and money into something for nothing in return.

Probably not. v3's been "in development" for almost a decade now with no updates since 2011 I believe. I think it's safe to say this little project a college kid did in his spare time in the early 2000's is long past its expiration date.

Even if it did launch I highly doubt much would really come of it. The final 2-3 years of the old V2 server were pretty dead; seldom would you log in and not be the only player online. And most of the people that were a part of the old community are in their 20's/30's by now and have long since moved on with their lives. V3 would probably be dead on arrival at this point, to put it bluntly.

Kind of a shame, I always liked playing on Stick/Slime Online and the many 39dll clones people would make and share on the forums back in the day.

I知 sure many of you are wondering the same thing but would anyone else really enjoy being able to play stick online again? Even just v2 not even V3 at this point, I think that if the server came back online we would maybe actually see quite a bit of players online. Anyway I知 just saying Meiun if your listening could you possibly get the v2 server up again? Lots of people would love to play it

Hi everyone! I miss the quality time I spent with a lot of you. It's been about 11 years since I started playing. I'm now 25 (26 before too long) and married. I have a wonderful wife and two step-daughters. And possibly a child of my own on the way (we're hoping). I've been working at a car parts factory for almost 3 years. The work's easy (for me) and I make decent money doing it ;D I've considered schooling through the company to become a lab tech or major in business. I don't game much anymore, but I must say that Pocketown currently absorbs a good amount of time in my life lol. Glad to see so many people still poking around the forums. Much love my SO brethren!

Glad to hear you're all doing fine, nostalgia kicks in big time haha!

I started playing around 2005. There are maybe 3 ways any of you may actually remember me, either as a guy with first GS drop, a tourney finalist, or as a general dipshit that got banned for hacking the game.

Ironically, shortly after I was done with college I found a job in field of programming and security. After 2 years I wasn't satisfied with where I was, so I decided to start freelancing as a video-game programmer. I've been doing it for around 2 years now and I really couldn't be happier with my decision. My life sort of revolves around work nowadays, so I don't have a lot of time to play games anymore, really wish I could hang out and chat for a bit with people I've met here like I used to. It's a shame we all left MSN, right? :P

I remember most of you though and I get reminded of my experiences within this community multiple times each year. I could spend hours just writing names of the people I remember playing this game with, even though we lost touch maybe almost 10 years ago. This game and the community was impactful in terms of me growing from a troubled teen into a proper adult, it's something I'll treasure for long time to come.

Great topic!

I'm about to turn 23 (Started playing SO in 2005 so about half my life ago). Studied Communications and Theatre and graduated last year. Currently working operations management for a big fashion company here in Australia (I have literally no sense of fashion though). I'm hopefully about to move into a more dedicated communications role within the company.

I'm about to buy my first house and am planning on proposing to my girlfriend in the not-too-distant future.

I also spend too much money on Magic the Gathering.

FFAm, Stealing your formatting; I like it, also my build is just a little worse than yours so I only had to change a couple things.

Graphics Card: EVGA GTX 970 4GB
Processor: Intel Core i5 4690k @ [stock.0]GHz (maybe like 3.7 or something?)
RAM: 32GB DDR3
Storage: 4TB HDD (2x2TB)
OS Storage: 120GB SSD

I can't help but feel like I've posted my build on these forums before--only thing that's changed is my storage and memory.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Started playing SO when I was younger. Now I'm older.

I lay in the sun all day on the weekends trying to get this whole photosynthesis thing down.

So far I've gotten the whole take in sunlight and CO2 portion. Just gotta figure out how to produce my own glucose and stuff. It's looking good so far however.

Oh and I got E-4(USAF) like two weeks ago. (6 months early) @ 22 Months TIG/24 Months TIS. 2 years down, 4 years to go on this contract. Still haven't been anywhere cool. Chose the wrong AFSC for that--Cyber Systems Operations. I used to maintain servers on a network. Now I maintain one server and like 100 client devices, managing an application the maintainers use to access tech data.

It's embarrassing how close I am to my Associates and still don't have it.

I smoke cigarettes like a chimney.

Life is good. Would be better with SO, just sayin ;)

Nice to see you guys are doing well!

I started playing just before I turned 12, and now I'm currently 22, so it's been a little more than 10 years since I started playing. :o. Brings back memories of rushing home after school to grind for a GS lol.

Currently, I'm studying a bachelor's degree in IT centred around programming, however I'm currently doing a paid full-time internship as a technician at a high school for the year. It's fairly stressful at times but the diversity of skills I've learnt from it, from server management to web development to project management, is worth it IMO. Kind of crazy to think that S.O. is what led me down this career path.

On the side, I've been producing music for a few years now. Recently I've been remixing in the trap and future bass genres. It's pretty rewarding to finish a project, and hearing my friends talk about it, but I don't plan on doing it for more than a hobby.

Haven't really been gaming much this year as I don't really have much time these days. I tend to stick to the weekend to play games, and even then it's either Dota 2 or Overwatch.

I'm happy to see some familiar names in this thread already. I look forward to hopefully seeing more posts in the future when I lurk here next time.
