    Today 11 months ago @GingerGeek posted a thread named "Free Build Extended Maintenance" where he explained that freebuild would have to close down for an unknown amount of time. We have had some promises, but that's the only thing we get. No updates from the developers (except for this one in December 2015), and definitely no freebuild.

    I know it has become a way bigger project than what you started with, but it's been 11 months. After the maintenace started we've had 4 new gamemodes (7 if you count solo modes and bw coremode as gamemodes, 9 if you include the christmas games, 10 if you include the spleef league), 1 friend/punishment update, 1 1.9 update, 2 Blockwars updates (3 if you count the original Blockwars as one), 1 Survival Games update, 1 Skywars update, 2 Eggwars updates, 1 Tower Defence update (2 if you count the original td as one), one Lucky Islands update and one PvP update. The amount of updates alone tells us how slow this update is taking shape.

    If you could just publish one game at a time or place more developers on that project it would maybe be ready faster. I see at least a couple posts about this every week, but it doesn't seem to speed it up at all. I know that developing takes time, but 11 months?

    I know someone will say "Patience is key", "The developers are working on it", "The developers are not robots" or "soon™", but that's not what this thread is about. The thread is about the fact that it's been 11 months since the maintenance started.

    I will tag the developers, because I want their opinion. @CaptainDawg_ (I think you work on the project), @GingerGeek , @Mintcraftian , @504Errors , @DanOF , @Foodyling , @Minikloon @toropov @rubik_cube_man .
    I will also tag some owners and head admins because I want their opinion as well. @Joe Henry , @Marco Slater , @johncoles , @rubik_cube_man (yes, I tag you again), @Efcluke94 , @Mac
    and I will tag @GuaaaaarD;) because you always reply on threads like this.

    Also, I really think that it won't be out by the end of summer. Meteorological summer ends on August 31.

    I can see what you mean about free build being in maintanance. I know that the free build has been in mainlanders for a very long time now, and I don't think it would be released at the end of August. Probally it would be released during the end of September or early autum. If you ask staff they will simply say "Soon" Even people that have the mod rank won't know the answer. (This came from HackersDontWin in his live stream"

    But we do know they're working on it. (I hope)

    No way would they forgot it, people are always talking about how they want it out.

    Also, I understand that they don't want to give dates because maybe they don't want to break those dates and make players mad, but I would like to know every so often how they are doing. Though, I am honestly ok with not getting any real updates.

    I understand your frustration. I used to play a lot of Parkour and UHC when the hackers were getting to much at assassins, but i'm getting a bit annoyed. They kinda promissed that it would be done at the beginning of the summer, but the project was way bigger then they thought and they said it would take a bit longer. Developing isn't easy, but I get what you're saying. So many updates where developers are needed but still no UHC, Parkour, Factions and Creative. And we know NOTHING about what's going on. Only that we need to stay patient and that it's comming 'soon'.

    September 21st, fam.

    On Topic: Tagging owners, devs, and head admins just distracts them from actually working on the server. You've theoretically slowed the progress of the freebuild server (and other things) being released with this post. :p

    It's being worked on. I'm contractually not allowed to say anything more than that. I do believe we'll be able to meet our deadline of Summer, but again, nothing is for certain. There are many, many projects being worked on (again, contractually not allowed to mention them) but freebuild is coming.

    That's astronomical summer that ends on Sept 21st :p Meteorologists redo the seasons so that it matches with the climatic averages, hence the August 31st end date.

    Yeah, but we're not meteorologists. This is kinda like saying we have more time to work on freebuild because we're using the Chinese calendar and the Chinese New Year starts after the Gregorian New Year. Either way, this conversation has no real value on the conversation at hand, which is the release of freebuild.

    There have been countless other threads (https://www.cubecraft.net/threads/¿hasta-cuando-estara-free-build-en-mantenimiento-how-long-shall-free-build-in-maintenance.135647/ https://www.cubecraft.net/threads/when-do-cubecraft-add-free-build-back.128949/ https://www.cubecraft.net/threads/free-build-maintenance.100827/ https://www.cubecraft.net/threads/when-does-the-free-build-maintenance-end.73480/ ) asking the same question, and I'm sad to say that I cannot disclose that information. All I can say is that it's being worked on, it will be released in the future, and there are plenty of other games to enjoy in the meantime.

    You're right, it says "Do not make thread or post comments asking about given updates, features, projects and maintenance are released". I didn't ask about when it will be released, I just wanted to talk about the fact that it's been 11 months since the maintenance started...

    Can we have an amen please.

    It takes way too long guys, let's be honest.
    Just as @hgbf said, I know developing stuff takes a lot of time, but it shouldn't be taking 11 months to finish ONE project, I know/understand most of the developers are no robots who can just fill every minute of their spare time developing stuff for the servers, but it surerly cant take 11 months while it takes a couple of weeks on other servers, right?

    So either, the developers have a lack of knowledge or there's a lack of developers who can actually "develop" the Free Build.
