In the year 2207 a hail of strange meteors strike the Earth, effectively killing an estimated 60% of mankind. Prior to the impact, the nations of the world moved bulks of their populations to space to dodge the coming apocalypse. All but one made this move. Japan decided to ignore the mandate and moved underground, building massive bunkers. Fifty-three years later, mankind returns to the surface, and the struggle for resources of an unprecedented scarcity prompts one of the greatest conflicts in Earth's long history. But will mankind notice the alien passengers that arrived with the meteorites?
Progress is slowed but still chugging along. Unexpected help is speeding up the PN texturing.

Just wanted to let the few who care know what has been going on in Conflict Terra's development. First and foremost, it should be said that I am currently (and finally) employed, as a bicycle mechanic, and I work 6 of the 7 days in a week. That being said, I do not have much spare time, and certainly not all of that time is spent tinkering with the project. But I do try to do what I can, when I feel up to it. Just the other night, I went through and adjusted all of the units metal costs.
The next version of Conflict Terra will have some big changes. A good way to put it is that I'm finally addressing things I've been putting off, those things being less balance-crucial aspects of the game like effects and explosions. An adjusted economy is another example. But, because it'll involve a lot of attention, it'll naturally come at a slower rate, especially as my free time has been cut down to a fraction of what it was.
The PN is coming along slowly. Models are being made, and textures given to a few. Estimated time of completion is still unknown.
An unexpected occurrence has come to the Development Team. An enthused young soul, met in the Spring Lobby during a game of NOTA, has offered his services to assist in the texturing of the PN. He's textured a handful of units so far, and has been doing good work. He has even talked of some ideas for a third civ, but the primary goal now is to finish the PN.
As said before, progress is slow but steady.
