Moreawesomethanyou.com has gained a Maxoid member!

There's been a great discussion of fixes etc in Nightlife, Uni Patch
and future NL patch in this thread:
http://www.moreawesomethanyou.com/smf/index.php?topic=5...

I find it wonderfully refreshing how open HatedMaxoid (!) has been
about this, with a lot more information than they seem willing to
release on the official board.

Yeah, especially as many of those bugs were first noticed months ago, and
are incredibly annoying. Like it seems they fixed the missing icons bug (it
was caused by the RC car). Why on earth wouldn't they put out a patch to
immediately fix that problem? I mean, it's almost a showstopper.

Maybe if they gave feedback regularly on what they are fixing (or actually
fixed them in a timely manner), they wouldn't be so "Hated"

"Hate" is a strong term to use. I don't *hate* Maxis, if I did, why in
this world would I want a game made by them? If you hate them, don't buy
anything from them.

Well, I meant the name of the Maxis employee who posted that. He has "Hated"
in this title, presumably because there is a lot of grousing about bugs.

LOL yes, I did see that name on a forum. I guess I did misunderstand
when I first read your post. Sorry! Yeah, they are getting a lot of
gripes and they do need to get those patches out soon. If they don't,
people just might stop buying their products.
