A Developer diary for SoW, like this one:

http://www.hoi3.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=59:thursday-16th-october-2008-map-philosophy&catid=46:developer-diary&Itemid=62

It's made using joomla.. not a great effort from the developer himself.

Better than posting news in a forum, isn't it?

Who said it's a question of time? And no, not better IMHO. Just different.


But let's think a moment about what you'd like to have:

HoI III was officially announced on August 20th, 2008, the first Dev-Blog corresponds with the first concrete info released on October 16th, 2008.


SoW was not officially announced yet. That would mean we have a complete silence for maybe another year, the few updates would stop, no renders, no info-posts, no Q&A. And then, maybe next year, a short announcement from UBI and another 3 month until we hear an official word from Oleg.


No, thanks. Please choose a better example, if you really want to wish for something.

Who cares about how news are published, if there aren't any news?!

Mhm..

On a side we have a single thread made of 187 pages where a new guy has to find out the news... Forgottenfighter did a nice thing opening the new thread.

On joomla we have organized sections.

Again here we have pictures links (many with not really informative names... "vvv-03_01.jpg")

Instead in joomla there is a gallery (http://www.hoi3.com/index.php?option=com_morfeoshow&task=view&gallery=1&Itemid=61)

Anyway, is not true that there are no news... news exist, but you need to find them on another sources... :(

Well, if that was your Idea, I agree with you.

Though honestly, the thing you see in the blog is the same you see in Oleg's thread. The Q&As in the forums and different threads are simply a bonus. You will find the same for HoI if you know where to look for.

I wouldn't really call Oleg's thread questions and answers, it's just questions!

Well, it was announced as an IL2-Addon in 2006, so I doubt that counts ;)

SoW was never announced to be a Il-2 add on.

SoW was never announced to be a Il-2 add on.

It was announced as a sequel that time, based on the IL2 engine. A standalone release, but an addon for the old engine.
