There's a perfectly reasonable explanation for all this arguing. We are hyped to the T and thus we need something to get busy while waiting for our fix...

While at it, Pi Is Exactly 3.

I'm curious as to how a tank would evolve. Would it climb out of the primordial ooze wiggling it's track-nubs, feeding on smaller jeeps before crawling onto the shore having evolved proper treds?

It's a shame it had to come to that.

I have to say this part:

...getting it up to a state where it isn't an utter and fundamental degradation of the currently released version. There are crashes, optimizations that need doing, dwarves that seem to potter off without thinking in between certain jobs, and all manner of other trouble.
was interpreted by me less as "Ooo final step!" then as "Ooo, that sounds bad". For one he is going to want to be damned sure any bugs that would require breaking save-compatibility to fix are squashed.

Which is good for me personally actually. I hope it's delayed to the summer, or at least post-SATs.

3. (3+3+3)/9*1+2=3. Half-life Pi confirmed.

I think people are very bored to spend this much time arguing over such a small thing...it will take as long as it does...I would imagine thats at least a month...and frankly would prefer he fix it + some older nagging bugs...but we shall see
Maybe it will keep everyone occupied until the release takes them by surprise.

How? Was your expectation of debug time somehow different than the one the devlog put forward?

If you ask me, we'll end up with DF2014 by the first week of may, or, if we're really lucky, the end of April.

You do realize we're talking issues, right? Crashes, gamebreaking bugs and stuff?

We'll be lucky if it gets done this summer...

I was expecting something positive like "Well guys, there only some bugs left. I will do some cleaning and make a release soon. It will be fun, he he he"

And then the release drops and everyone's all excited and tries it out, has some fun, waits until the round of bug fixing and low hanging fruit is done over the next few months, then gets bored and starts hyping themselves up for the next major release 2-3 years away... -.-

It will be when magic gets implemented and wizards can alter universal and mathematical constants.

The World Without Knifebear A much safer world indeed.
regardless, the slime shooter will be completed, come hell or high water, which are both entirely plausible setbacks at this point.
