    Not only that but the quality of the hheads would decrease. There are a lot of good Blow heads but plenty of bad ones as well

    You didn't donate to get a head, you purchased one. Donating implies you were willing to give the $200 to the developers and receive nothing.

    You misunderstand. I meant they roll the FUNCTIONALITY of Skinney's mod in, not the assets themselves.

    I guess that's just the term everyone uses to feel more comfortable about spending that much money on 16x16 pixels.

    If I "donated" to a politician and then miraculously my father's 10 year sentence was suspended by that same politician a week later, I think we all can agree that was not in fact a 'donation'.

    Old bugs, nothing new. But it's good that you remind the devs. I think the most of the bugs will disappear if you just restart the game. :smug::thumbs_up:

    Nothing but semantics. Many businesses use the term "donations" when selling stuff so that if there is any legality involved, it is okay since they are legally giving the money away and the devs just so happen to give something back as a reward. No legal purchases were made in regards to the donation-side of things. Regardless of what they intended, legally it's not a purchase.

    That is how a lot of businesses can sell beer. It's a legal loophole.

    Re: donation - Thiamor is right that we insist on the term donation to make sure there's no legal issues and to prevent people thinking they can "purchase" a hat for $200 indefinitely. We're not planning on adding more slots.
    Re: "well if I gave $200 i'm sure you would" - KAG's sales are more than that each day, the money isn't what was/is compelling for us. We wanted a way to give something back for long term support and big donations, but it's kind of spiralled into something people expect/some sort of weird obligation. I'm honestly quite glad we're out of slots, as it's both a milestone in terms of support and means we don't have to handle adding more of them, haha.

    Re: 1373 bugs, flying etc - if you have leads on any patterns you've noticed with this please let us know. A lot of them seem to be fixed by a restart which isn't particularly helpful :/

    If you end up somehow being able to give out more slots, it shouldn't ever be something you can buy your way into anymore. It should really be for members who have contributed a lot in the game, or forums, or whatever you think contribution might stand for. That is why my dad never let's people pay bills if they have to stay with him. Because they start thinking they have a say, or are entitled to something. He'll make them contribute work, but money never is exchanged.

    Also Geti, question. How possible would it be, to configure kag to work for consoles and to have it sold via PSN/Live? Right now that's a far off question given the bugs and such you have to contend with, but I'd imagine if it were possible, you'd get a lot more money and members flooding in.

    Re: Not being able to buy into it - we're just not planning on having more slots, but yes that was the original intent.

    Re: Console port: Not feasible + we have no intention to port. We'd seriously much rather work on other games rather that endlessly port + maintain kag.

    It'd probably cost you a pretty penny as well, to port it over, and I assume there'd be licensing fee's, etc involved.

    Minimap key doesn't work, you can still enable/disable it in autoconfig.cfg file.

    I hate how buggy this build is. Ever since it came out I have issues with doors not opening or closing at crucial moments, builders not selecting blocks or inventory, no way to disable the map, players moving through the red zone during build time, flying archers and more

    an incredibly frustrating experience
