Oh man, sorry that you were ill. I hope you’ve recovered from that now.
But I will definitely take a look at your channel for a second play-through, if you decide to do so. Also, please feel free to also contribute to the wiki, I will try to do so, as well. It’s one of the reasons I would like to see the forum active again for the game to have ‘wiki-talk’ in giving information the best and most consistent way on the wiki.
At least I think there is still going to be a wiki. They (EAS) did indicate one would be put up for Rainbow Skies, but it was awhile back.

I just want to add to this thread by saying that the main reason I personally haven't been around in the forums is because there really isn't much to talk about to begin with. I haven't played Rainbow Moon in the last two years because I'm too busy with other games and life in general, while I feel like Rainbow Skies has been in development hell for the last two years, so why talk about it?
I remember when we used to have a release window of 2015 and back then I was still really hyped to play Skies. 2015 had passed and there was no sign of the game. After that, we got a 2016 release window, so I became a bit more hesitant to get hyped. And yes, sure enough, 2016 had passed and still no release. Then we got a first half of 2017 release window. Nothing, again. So here we are, still no sign of the game coming out anytime soon.
At this point, I'm very skeptical, because I feel like I've been burned too many times by optimistic release windows. I'll buy this game on day one, but my hype died years ago. By now, I don't really care if the game comes out or not. If it does, I'll just have one more game to play. If it doesn't, nothing is lost for me. It's not like I won't have anything else to play if Skies doesn't come out.
Perhaps this clears up why the forums are dead. There really isn't anything to discuss. Rainbow Moon is an old game by now and Skies still doesn't seem anywhere near release. It'll probably just be a 2018 game or something. Meh.
Don't give up on the forums though. I will probably be back on here when the game releases to discuss certain elements of the game and give my constructive feedback for future patches (if necessary), so I'm sure many will follow.
On a different note, I sure hope Skies doesn't turn out to be another Lost Sea in the sense that there's very poor marketing surrounding it. I have no proof to back this up, but I feel like the game bombed pretty badly because it wasn't promoted that well. Also, the reviews were very mixed and I think the people who found out Lost Sea existed were too daunted by the reviews to buy the game. I haven't bought the game myself, because I'm not the type of person to buy something simply to support the creators while the product itself isn't for me.
I think what saved Rainbow Moon at the end of the day is that it was free on PS+ back in 2014. I wouldn't have found out about the game if it hadn't been free and I wouldn't be on board for Skies if I hadn't played Moon. PS+ really was Moon's savior. I sure hope EAS knows what they're doing with Skies' upcoming release. I'm sure the game itself will be amazing for those of us who loved Moon, but more people need to be convinced to buy the game in order for it to be considered a financial success. Surely these many years of development were not cheap in any way.
