I have been considering steam since the beging of april.

I have not defiantly decided to publish on steam but the first step is to get it approved. Then all will depend if a deal can be made.

So please go to the green light and vote.

Please Vote on this green light page

Pro: some more exposure.

Cons: Time to create the the stuff that talks to steam, and % of revenue they take.

Can I get a bit more info before I pull the lever?

I understand getting more exposure and thus more players in the arena. Generally more players in the arena is regarded as a "good thing" for gameplay. Got it. (May or may not be great, depending upon the kind of players we get, no? Right now, I suspect most players have an interest in WW2 aviation and ground action. That may not be the case...or it might.)

I understand more players may or may not work as for an increase in income for HTC. $ from New players - $ to Steam is a variable equation that depends on how many new players and how much Steam charges. I view more income for HTC as a "good thing" for all of us and the game though.

Now, what would going on Steam change for current players? Subscription rate goes up? Any kind of Steam restrictions? Would game login/play be just as it is now?

I admit I know nothing of how Steam operates. Last thing I heard about them was YEARS ago and people complained about Steam putting a bunch of non-essential crap on the players computer.

Thanks for any info on these questions from anyone, especially about playing games on Steam.

Tried to vote, they demanded that I establish an account with them to do so.

I killed my steam account looong ago because of the extraneous stuff they load onto our machines.

anyone know of an alternate way to give this input without having to be a Steam member?

To the steam user, they would simply have a different login and payment method. But they would be playing in the same world as non steam users.
The game would still be available able just as it is now.

End user price would have to be the same across all venues.

Wanted to vote but need to sign up! :furious

  Not a big deal but they always want an Email addy and then it gets spammed. Personally I'm neutral on all of this,would like to see more players and the game grow but not sure what is best to do this.

  Then again my workload will increase........ :rofl


  Dale is that check still in the mail??? :devil
