Glad to see Jord's putting extra care into his most familiar area, Cloning.

Regarding the login stuff, will it be the same accounts as forums or complete new ones for the game?

Cloning area looks cool, cloning is going to be like original where everyone goes to one cloning room? It was great for finding new players and helping them out giving them some kind of direction cause trust I'd be in cloning more times then I'd like to admit.

I sadly never visited the facility in old FoM so I'm excited to finally see some footage of its successor.

Yup it'll feel very familiar to the cloning you're used to.

It looks good, really good, lotta progress. Only thing I noticed about cloning is that it looks really... glossy, the lighting is a bit weird and gives half of the objects an artificial shine and the other half are very dark, but I'm sure the end product will look good.

Also I see no issue with crouching putting you halfway through the floor, that's how it works IRL, right?

cloning is still wip, the lights are for working, not the actual lighting that will be used

Keep in mind that everything is VERY early work in progress. Lightening is still something we need to work on.

Hopefully the final product is going to be darker than foms, the bright lights and tons of white was a bit too much.

Yup pretty much the lighting I have in my head. Won't be anywhere near as brightly lit as Foms cloning.

I've never been so hyped by the idea of visiting cloning. Well done Jord. Have some rep (once I log onto my laptop)

No yeah for sure, it looks great for a few months development, and especially so for not being a final game, some games release like that, was just bringing up that it was the only flaw i could see. And the crouch bit was a joke.

No problem - Any feedback you and the rest of the community give is valued and listened to. I try to read and reply to everything I can and read the suggestion forums daily.

We are still very early on and usually people would never get show anything this early in development because it risks people giving feedback on unfinished work but we want everyone to be part of the journey with us.

We're all previous FoM players and all love this type of game and crave for that again, that's why we're so passionate about delivering something everyone will be happy with.

Thanks for the feedback, keep it up.
