STKed 0.0.5 or 0.1?

Postby stked » 23 Dec 2009, 18:32

Hi all,

I've been debating between STKed 0.0.5 or 0.1 for the new release. Improvements include a new color scheme, powerup fix (yay), improved English, and smaller downloads. Feedback?

Depends if it is out of pre-alpha or not. For me, 0.0.x releases are pre-alpha, 0.1.x alpha, with numbers closer to 1.0 being less alpha more beta.

a) Can you start it? -> version >= 0.0.1
b) Can you play it? -> version >= 0.1
r) Can you win (finish) it? -> version >= 1.0

b!

It is essential you go with v0.1

As leader of the STK empire - you must inspire confidence. With v0.0.5 you risk an uprising, a mutiny. With 0.1, there is no doubt among your underling, there is no hero pulling a sword from a rock with the intention of slaying you at sunrise after the rising of the fifth moon.

Go with the better number. Look more beta, less alpha, more peons will gather to get involved. Set the stage for the illusion of excitement, because going from 0.0.4 to 0.1 will arouse much more curiosity than 0.0.5.

And you know what that they say - curiosity killed the cat. But personally, I think curiosity saved the mouse.

Thanks for the input. Majority rules, 0.1. BTW, Deceth, I am the leader of the STKed empire, not STK. Big difference! :D
