    Default Increasing the Cap on Active Dimensions - Any New News?

    This isn't a new suggestion, it's been asked countless times, and devs actually said they were working on implementing this.

    I haven't heard any news since, are they still hoping to increase the cap to say 25 or 30? Obviously a dev response would be great here, or has any other dimensioner heard anything on any other information channels?

    the last thing I heard was that it was a lot more complicated than they thought, and they didn't know if it was possible at all, if I understood that correctly (or if it's worth the effort, I guess... if they have to re-program half the game to do it, they'll probably say no to it ;-) )

    edit: I'm all for it, of course. I'd love to have more building space on my main, there are so many unused dimensions I'd love to build with from the time I just collected every key I got, including event keys...

    Well I hope they're weighing up the benefits of increasing the cap vs. the time it will take to implement it, considering this will potentially increase buyers to expand further.

    I understand their resources are limited, but it seems to be the same answer for everything; it will take too long.. let's hope they give a reasonable answer on this.

    I don't remember where it was said, maybe on a live stream with Tacitus, but it was made clear that it's more than just changing a number to up the limit.

    I imagine it something like this:
    Game Dev: "Are we going to change the limit in the future?"
    Game Designer: "Unlikely."
    *Dev goes on and hardcodes data layout*
    <several years later>
    Game Designer: "Hey, how about increasing the limit of active dimensions?"
    Game Dev: "Are you kidding me? You told me it won't change..."

    Dev: "Are you kidding me? You told me it won't change..."
    Notice I removed the word game from the dev title. It's for that reason that when we do development projects where I work, I try to tell the devs (I am a dev, too), not to code the solution into a corner. Things will change. On that, you can be certain. What you can't be certain of is how they will change.
