Just some updates on progress. Concerning changing to a closed beta, an issue/ miscommunication with file hosting, and some open positions for the development team. ......... ............. ................. ..................

Some updates on progress:

1) I'd like to have had another beta to release by this time but work has not been up to schedule. Also, I have decided I will be switching the beta test game releases to a closed beta system until the game is more smooth and the major bugs are ironed out. If you want to participate in the closed beta please notify me via pm on indie/moddb or at the spring engine forums here:  Springrts.com The old beta release can also be found on the spring engine forum's Contact thread.

2) Some issues with the file hosting on moddb that led to a mislabel of the beta to include the iPhone as a supporting platform, which I believe led to some frustration by iPhone users and subsequently bad reviews. To clear things up Contact is not designed to work on the iPhone (it is designed for the PC, linux, and mac OS platforms), so I apologize for that miscommunication. It seems that iPhones are now a default setting for moddb which make it easy to mislabel posts.

3) If any one is interested in helping the project we do have room in the team, but I need not remind you that some experience is necessary. What we could use  at this point is help with LUA coding/ scripting, and 3d modeling/2d textures. If any one is interested give me a pm here or on springRTS forums: Springrts.com
