Default House

I don't talk publicly about personal stuff very often, mostly because I think people would find it boring, but I thought I would in this case because it might make me less responsive for the next couple months.

Anyway, we are planning on selling our house in the near future. It has been our long term plan for a while now to sell the house, buy an RV, and slowly travel around America (spending several months at each location). We were planning on doing this after our middle child graduated from high school, but Soldak's sales have slowed down enough that we kind of need to do it early for financial reasons. So instead of fixing up the house over several years, I'm now doing it over a much shorter period of time. Working on an expansion and a full new game, getting the house ready for selling, and having 2 kids in the house (a teen and a toddler) is exhausting!

From a Soldak perspective, you shouldn't see too much of a difference though. In the short term, I might disappear for a few days here and there, but that isn't too much different than normal. In the long run, if I release a game or upload a patch, you guys won't necessarily care if I happen to be in Texas, Colorado, or Minnesota at the time. The nice part about my setup is that it doesn't really matter where I am physically. As long as I have an internet connection and electricity, I can work just fine.

This is a neat idea. Good luck selling the house. The housing market is seller friendly right now in almost every state, so I hope you get some good offers.

Are you going to settle somewhere else outside Texas after the RV tour is over? Or will you return to Texas to buy another place and settle?

Well we will see how it goes, but we aren't really planning on settling again. Of course we are likely to find places that we really enjoy and will visit them more often or longer each time.

If we settle anywhere (even temporarily), it'd be near where ever our kids land. Could be anywhere.

Such a shame sales slowed down. I've got big respect for the game decisions you make, even with sales slowing down. Really shows your passion.

GL with the sale and RV
