I adore Icon but at the same time it makes me sad. I get to see all of these maps, but can't actually play.

I have to admit one thing: I haven't been able to bring myself to go to the Talos Island map. It was my SG's "official home" and I spend hours there because it was so convenient.

I know how you feel Tacitala. Some of my best memories were of running Atlas Park at night during Haloween events (and I dearly loved the Shining Stars missions with Twinsht's gang) and many of my toons had their origins centered on Atlas Park and Kings Row... so wandering around the ghost town in Icon can be very depressing, knowing I won't hear any wolf howls, or see any zombies, nor will my toons get to fight their prefered villain groups in gloriously spastic fits of justice.

I describe ICON as restoring one fifth of what I lost by losing the game. I have that magnificent character generator back, and I can tour the world -- that's a major win half a year later. It also gives me major hopes that before one year's anniversary is reached, there will be a private server package available for people to run that will have most of the game function back (and probably, like ICON, with a few things more that you could NEVER do before in the game)

There is certainly enough precedent from other games to expect that a reverse-engineered system will show up sooner rather than later. And likely people hosting private sites.

Personally, I'm very happy that we have ICON.
In 2004, when EA shut down Earth and Beyond after only 2 years, it took almost 4 years before we got to see space again ..

With Icon, I got to see Paragon City again only after a few months ..

It is what it is .. and I'll take it.

I get to create new costumes .. pretend I'm Statesman .. and I get to FLY!!! Awesome only after a few months ..

Cheers to all responsible for ICON .. I salute you!!

Default Icon 1.71 and other news

An incremental update is out to make incorporating popmenus more convenient. Also, Icon finally has its own subforum on the Titan boards, which is quite welcome news. Please go there for more information.

I'd rather have this than nothing at all. Can't wait for some genius (and I mean that honestly) to crack the code and RE this game.
