That's because your clients don't pay the bill up-front. [wink]However I feel none of what you have stated correlates to what we as a community are asking tbh. It is a bit like a client of mine asking for an outline of the design principles based on their initial brief and then stating sorry we are not going to give you any idea on what we will design, work on or that yes we understand the brief and will do our best to fulfill it. We would have no custom at all if we worked like that.
I'm not sure what you're expecting, Frontier can't tell you what they don't know or don't want to decide (yet). I'm not trying to defend the devs. Honestly, I think PC was a much bigger disappointment than RCTW (it was obvious early on this was gonna suck). With PC you can actually see the great potential it has which makes the way it was released even more painful.
