This is looking incredible - the final game looks as though it will be a breathtaking, complex, rewarding... thing, whatever it'll be!
On the subject of people, who may or may not be for scale purposes - wouldn't it be rather boring to simulate a city, and then not populate it? I, for one, am hoping for people. Whether you will be one of them, or perhaps an omnipotent Actuator-sabotaging lift-confusing RTS-type deity is another matter for speculation, methinks.

This reminded me of GRAW. Did anyone else find it awkward for Mexico City, the most populous city on the globe, to be entirely empty?

A void argument when talking about Subversion I think, as this is obviously not going to be a tactical shooter (or is IV really going to surprise us? :P), but I think there are reasons for a game to be empty of citizens nonetheless. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

There are. If for example we make the assumption that the game is about corporate espionage, then citizens barely factor as anything other than a statistic you hear about sometimes.

To REALLY surprise me, they would have to make it a modern version of pong.

Finally we have the first interactive element in the engine.

Well, at least you should be happy that in Subversion, you won't play as a mechanic whose job is to fix all the systems, sensors and other stuff before the time runs out. :roll:

I wonder can actuators and sensors be emitters at the same time?

I look forward to these Subversion updates, as much as I look forward to the release of a full game. The technical aspects pique the imagination.

Jumping ahead and capability unknown, but my first script: hand-glider.

Oh and MACBOOK? Will we get a Mac version same time as PC? *wish*

Uplink meets the real world? Mission Impossible-style?
That would be so amazing.

I think this is one of the first posts where Chris starts to give a few hints :)
It looks awesome..

Presumably it will be entirely possible to recreate Pong within the Subversion world. ;)

ITS A "MISSION IMPOSSIBLE" THEMED GAME! Nah, not really, but still, it seems quite impressive. Maybe you and a squad of online mates go through the city, to a target building, and then shoot some shit, followed by robbing some shit, and then taking a shit. ALL IN THE SAME GAME! IS AWESOME!

/me slaps his face

I have no idea what the hell this is.
