You're using 0.6.2 code right? What's your plan for when 0.7 comes out, stick with the older code?

Yes.

I dont know - when is that likely to come out - 2011?


Uh, yeah. Good luck with the project.

My priority right now is to release a small demo where you can fly around the new universe in a cool new spaceship and do some basic conversation with your old friends.

So sadly its mostly graphics stuff thats required at this stage - stuff that I'm not good at either.

An outline of the main plot devices has been sketched out, but the actual plot ending is still up in the air. Whne the demo is out, I'll turn my mind to the actual story part.

Oh, long term, themes for new alien races and ditties for new alien ships will be needed too :)

I'm super-excited about this project. Sadly, I'm also useless at graphics and music and all that rot, so I'll stick to cheering from the sidelines.

It seems that the project has picked up some sped again, which is awesome. Art is a hard part of a project, but it looks like you're moving forward.
Round and round it goes, where it stops nobody knows

Cant wait for the BETA! This really is a promising mod.
And that's all I got to say about that.

A Beta is years away, a fully playable demo however, merely months.

Actually the speed at which this moves forward is almost entirely determined by the frequency of high quality art coming in. Art is something only special people can create. Everything else is doable by monkeys like me with enough time.

A quick note.

Iíve hardly done anything on this in the last two months so progress has been snailís pace. Others in the team have done a few bits and pieces though, and good quality stuff too.

Right now itís summer and its really hard to justify working on this when its nice and sunny out and there are so many summery things on (like building retaining walls). Iíd hoped to have the demo out mid-April but Iím not sure that will be possible.

As usual we are hamstrung by lack of decent art. So If we get something fantastic soon then the game could change completely and we could be in business.

Specifically and most immediately, new comm screens for Earthling Cruiser, Syreen Penetrator, and Syreen Starbase/Homeworld
