I can see why others might've been disappointed, if they'd been looking forward to the time Alex finally showed his hand...but I thought that ending was PERFECT for him.  I mean, Alex was cool and all...but he spent basically two entire games freeloading off of what everyone else did.  He...

--------------------
1) Has Saturos and Menardi do most of his dirty work for him, never even bothering to help them with their fights against Isaac and co.

2) Abandons Felix and co. the moment he realizes that they can't do everything for him.

3) He attempts to steal Piers's ship; then runs away the moment Piers gets back

4) He later threatens Felix and co. to hurry up and light the lighthouses...except, he can't actually do it himself. Instad, he has Agatio and Karst drop everything they're doing to sail AAALLLL the way to Champa; all because he can't do his own bullying.

5) Tells Agatio and Karst that he'll back them up against Isaac and co...then turns tail the moment the two parties actually meet.

6) Never attempts to help anyone light Mars Lighthouse.
--------------------

IMO, the ending is perfect for him.  The guy goes out exactly the same way he came in; TALKING a big game while doing absolutely nothing.

And what really made it perfect (and hilarious)?  The Wise One dropkicks him out of the ending while doing the EXACT same thing to Alex that Alex had been doing to everything else; speaking very politely to Alex while insulting him at the same time.  And somehow, the Wise One does it without even being that mean about it.

I personally LOVED the scene; but I can see how it might've rubbed others the wrong way.. What do you all think?

Atrius: Thanks for letting me know, it should be fixed now.

Fox: Okay cool.  Speaking about broken things = There was some error I've known about for awhile now:  When you try to upload something to the Downloads section. The user may think the upload failed, but it actually succeeds. - I wonder if that was one of the few things? And whether that could be fixed if it hasn't yet.

Atrius: Oops, that wasn't even supposed to go up.  So, our hosting company moved the site over to a different server, and I was just updating some settings to fix things that broke in the move.

Fox: @Atrius: Probably going to need to update the Maintenance Description... I was confused at first, but it says 20 Mar 2017.

Majora: That's hilarious, lmao. I thought it read like something you might have written, Fox, was almost unsure if it was a bot at first

Fox: Yeah, he copied this post: http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?topic=1425.0

Fox: (Although, not sure about the last part, it just feels strangely familiar for some reason.)
September 18, 2017, 02:56:43 PM
Fox: BOT ALERT! Kill it, kill it! I think it copied one of my posts? :P

Fox: Not saing we actually need those ofcourse (we don't?), but more saying that minorities could get too attached to them.

Fox: I think it's interesting how Facebook likes to start things, and then retire them. For example, Advanced Search, and E-mail. - They seemed like pretty fine features in my opinion, but retiring them because most people aren't using them at that time? I'm not sure if they know what they're doing, but it sound like they don't. :P

Fox: (At leat when I think about establishments...)  ; Oops, pardon my rudeness... .I forgot to welcome you back.... Well... WElcome back! We are glad you've returned.

Fox: (Just want to clarify that "founded" may be an actual word, but sounds weird the way it was used.)
September 14, 2017, 12:47:42 PM
Fox: Cringy? Let me check... Hm... Low number of posts [check] (5 posts) ; misspellings/grammar [check] ("Toturial" (Torture-ial?) , ; founded, ehh.... double past-tense?) ; The best part is at least the posts have a positive attitude! (That may be the most important part?) :)

KeinoGSTLA: back then my posts were so cringy lmao

KeinoGSTLA: damn feels good to find this place again

Fox: I don't suppose there is anything else? ;; Hmmm... What if a Big Brother game was similar to ... er.... Exit/Corners .... which seems to have a Trust system.

Plexa: Honestly we haven't looked into that ... I completely forgot about it until now!

Fox: (Referring to the box/crate that would allow you to get stuck.)

Fox: Is SW Atteka Islet the only one that forgets to update the heightmap when save/resetting? ... The Move pillar seems to update it fine... Hm.
