Is it knowen yet when the expected release date (November?) for FB is.

And this is my first time on the PF Forum and i got a question. Why on some discussions people shown some screensshot of how they in some PF forums and even videos. Are those just addons or something?

The screenies and vids are simply from people affiliated with PF or are covering it's development. The prevailing rumors seem to point to an October or November release. We'll see, I suppose......

Even if it is delayed, I expect it will be out for the Christmas shopping season. I would rather it be delayed a month, even two, if it meant getting a bug free sim. Too many times games are pushed onto the shelves long before they are finished, just to make a deadline.

FB was actually released in 2003.

The interesting thing about EB's release date is that they had actually had it set for Oct for a long time, then switched to Nov, and just a few days ago back to Oct.

It's not a good idea to put much faith in any of those posted dates, but that is curious they would switch dates like that.

Someone in UPI calls someone in the dev team that feels optimistic and ask him: "When?"

- "We're reaching the goal. All this secret stuff looks glorious. Say... October!"
- "Ok. October, then"

Olex realizes and call UPI guys:

- "October, no. Soon. He is too happy man, when he say you october. We raising child. Too many work we do. Many whiners in the forums. Little mans do weird things on the carriers."
- "Ok. I got it."

But some days after, Olex and Luthor see the release date has been changed to November and call again UPI:

- "You don't understand a word. Close that book and never open again. We many people here in team, who knows when they all are finishing task. Say October, and then, like always, two weeks, two weeks and so. They then are angry and say disrespectful things, but run for the game the same. They complain the same after. You know."
- "All right, Maddock. Yes, that's the way, and our tradition. Meanwile, we'll release some updates and, while they fight one each other about this and that, the authentic release date will come anyway. So, October again... and let it rain!"
