You must have missed the video about the team discovering some game breaking bugs that had to be addressed before it can be released. Also the fact that Kinggath is under the weather and deserves some resemblance of rest.
You must have missed all the posts claiming fall has ended without SS2 being released

For some reason lot of people thought November was the release date. It was supposed to be but yes fall continues until nearly the end of this month. Plus sounds like it’s super close so once everybody is back to full health shouldn’t be much longer.

Huh, you're right, the definition of fall says between Autumnal equinox and winter solstice, which is right before Christmas. Nice! Always fun to learn something new!

Fall ends Dec. 21st
Uhm depends on the definition, and I am not even referring to the southern ~15%. Astronomical fall ends on Dec. 21, meteorological fall should end on Nov. 30 and then there are still a a few more or less still practioned "regional" (we are still talking about several million people, in one case even a billion+) fall definitions, which mostly define the autumn equinox as mid-autumn and not the beginning.

The definition is They still have 3 full weeks before all the whiners have any reason to complain that it's not released yet

No the definition is that fall/autumn is so flexible that there is no real ending so Kinggath & Co can have all the time in the world ;)

Given that Chapter 2 was fully on schedule to be released before the end of November, that means the actual content is well and complete, which I feel satisfies the original projection. Major bugs create new deadlines of their own.

May kinggath get over his real bug, and may the solutions to his digital bugs not breed bugs of their own.

Already expected bugs actually since it's a fresh release but yeah i guess some nasty bugs propped up. Dev Team probably wanted it to be available before the holidays and it's not fun stuck chasing bugs while the holidays gets closer since yeah you wanna have some R&R at that time. This is just for me though but they should release it before the holidays and just go R&R during the holidays or if it's really not ready and unplayable then yeah it pains me to suggest but they should just outright start the vacation and work on it further after coz i'm not really pro burn out coz it brings in the bad into people like less effective that sort of thing "Slippery Slope" it gets worst then and there "Regret and things like that".

I remember those times when i was stuck working coz of a deadline and missed the holidays. Everybody went Snow Skiing and i was left with a pile of papers, redbull and pizza boxes stacking and it was less fun for them coz i couldn't join them. After that i was so grumpy it ruined that whole month for me so i say nein and promote "Me 1st, everything else later" moments are more important than deadlines and learned that the hard way.

Kinggath is a proven finisher, I want Chapter 2 as much as everyone else on here but it'll land when it lands. There's too many other mods that I wont mention that have been worked on for over 5 years and we still ain't seen shit from them. SS2 ain't one of those mods and it'll be worth the wait

Agreed and any of the sky live on or sky wind fans that are waiting for those on the Skyrim side are like 7-8 years and counting. But at least skyblivion posts up videos every few months. Sims tend to put out when they say they will.

Yeah I'm not into Skyrim but if you include those into the mix then yep, 7-8 years in the making easily. And I'm not even including the mods for Fallout 4 that were canned after a year or 2 of 'development'

Chapter 2 of Sim Settlements 2 will be launching this Fall!


FAQ: https://simsettlements2.com/chapter-2/

Features:

  • Continues the story where Chapter 1 left off!
  • Multiple large side-quest lines involving new people and factions arriving as a result of your progress revitalizing the Commonwealth!
  • New Disease system for settlers! (Sorry - we came up with this years ago before the pandemic.... insert Picard meme)
  • World Repopulation system where areas outside of settlements begin to populate as the settlements become more prosperous!
  • Brand new gameplay mode that allows you to establish and build up your own faction headquarters!
  • New building classes, new recruitable settlers, and tons of new things to unlock!

A date and more details will come as we get closer - though we're going to do everything in our power to avoid spoiling the story - which means we can't fully explain all the new gameplay - but will do our best to at least help you prepare if you are looking to have a save in a good place, or if you are an addon pack author and are looking to jump in and contribute to the new systems!

A lot of love went into this chapter, huge shoutout to the team for assembling that awesome trailer - especially Pontus Johansson who collected and edited the footage - this was his final trailer for Fallout 4.

See you at the release!

we are still talking to a mod right? RIGHT?
