    I have watched the Dev video on PoT's and have a few questions.
    • Can anyone who has been through the process from start to finish tell me what happens with Portalarium in the design process?
    • Is this done by email, video conferencing , on location (as I live close to Austin), or some other process?
    • Where are the PoT templates?
    • I have my own layout in mind - do I have to build it in Unity?
    • Are there multiple meetings to iron out details?
    • Should I expect an email with the steps involved since my purchase has been made already?
    • Most importantly, what all do I need to have available when the meeting with the developers occurs?
    I am sure I missed other important questions. please feel free to add in anything you feel of importance.

    Two notes:

    and
    I don't think even Portalarium knows the answer to most of the questions yet - the only constant is change.
    The process starts "sometime early next year". So there is no one who has, when there is you'll see lots of posts asking lots of questions here. They go first in size order, then in date order.
    =)
    Unknown. You could always offer the dev a free lunch & donut if you want to visit.
    Not created yet.See above.
    But check out the Player-Run-Towns in the release, like Holtrot and Valemark.
    In the VIP tour it was made clear that they don't have time to fix people's untity etc to make something like that possible. The timeframe only allows for templates - not specific layout.
    Me I've requested if we can pay extra for a dev to do extra customization - but have so far recieved no reply.
    Probably not with smaller POTs. Maybe with the metropolises. Dev time is limited.
    You will get the template selection, send it in, wait until your slot comes up, then discuss what can be done from the template and time allowed.
    You will be contacted next year. There will be announcements etc.
    Unknown. Wait and we will see.

    Now I can turn off my lights and wait in the dark with everyone else. :)

    Thank you for the enlightenment. I am looking forward to building a dynamic community with all of you.

    If you haven't already (didn't check) you should head over to the POT list topic and fill that out. Then in the sotawiki you can create your POT entry...
