I finally did everything I need to do in order to announce the Name for my Game:
The Name is a combination of the words for Mechanics and Network, which is supposed to mean that a lot of different Game Mechanics (aka Mods) can be easily combined, or “networked together” so to say, to make whatever type of Game you want it to be to suit your needs!
Also the “ae” is an “ae” and not an “ä”, as for pronouncing the “ch” any of the 3 valid ways is fine. And the shorthand can be MN if needed, just like MC for Minecraft. I am not that serious about it but sometimes people need clarification so they can quote this. XD
In case you’ve wondered, my own name “Techneticies” follows a similar naming scheme of combining Tech to make something greater.
As for other Name Options I considered and rejected, there was:
Machianetia; essentially Machina and Network, but Mechanics seemed as a more fitting base word in the end.
Codexia; (based on both Code Ex and Codex, which however was already taken by a lot of other Stuff.
Spacecraft; that was a Name I thought would be nice when I was much younger, because Minecraft in Space, but you can guess that this is already a normal word for Spaceship, which I did not know back then, also Starmade is already doing what I would have done for said Game Idea
After a long time of consideration I decided to go with the GPLv3, simply because it opens up more possibilities when using Libraries, while also enforcing Open-Source and Freedom of the Software and all of its Mods or other derivatives, to make sure that everything is just Fun and Games.
For the Programming Language I have chosen Rust, with Amethyst (Apache2.0/MIT) as a base Library (yes GPLv3 Projects can do that, which is amazing).
The GitHub Project can be found below. I decided to go for GitHub as the primary Project place, simply because of the huge Community. And my Selfhosting Gitea Idea that I did for GT6, was not very good at all as it turns out, so I don’t wanna repeat that.
I do not think that I will keep my Patreon Account, after how badly the Patreon Website broke for me so much, that I can barely post anything there anymore. My financial Situation has stabilized at lot recently, so I don’t even need additional money anymore. I also removed most Links to my Patreon and PayPal yesterday.
As for GT6, please note that the Features I promised will be in the next Version, but said Version is gonna be released outside of the weekly cycle, simply because I have spend a lot of time on setting up the Forums and everything this week.
I am gonna need to do a lot of “rebranding” in the Forums now, along with managing a lot of other things.
Thank you for staying around for so long. ^^
I have been waiting for this since years
