Smile Small update! (4/27/18)

Hey folks,

here's a little update on the FOF development Essentially, things are progressing nicely. Most of the engine and AI code has been converted so it matches the new architecture, and the next step will be to take the best parts of the OOTP & FHM GUI, design the interface (it will look very similar to OOTP 19) and start coding the screens.

We will have a proper announcement about the features and the release (we'll have a PC and Mac version) once we get closer to beta testing, so probably late Summer / Fall. We'll keep you posted!

Cheers,
Markus

Thanks Markus.

Not sure at this point any update is small. Progress towards an actual release date is huge.

Thanks for this and looking forward to the next info drop... whatever it is, will be huge. Can't wait.

Thanks for the update. Any chance of a screenshot of the main menu when it's done, to tide us over?

Might as well do your own version of a Kickstarter here.... ready to drop my coin!

Thanks for the update, only makes me hungrier though.

I think we all would be interested in contributing to one, especially if it makes the game better or come sooner

beta test by summer? so it'd be released for this year? (well "2018" season and however the naming works, if it's "n+1" like every other sports game)

Dude, one step at a time. It took the OOTP some time before they got there with a mature product. There will be community mods to begin with.
