Since the post at epic was found directly announcing the indiedb.com site, I was pulled at both ends on what would be good for the project and maybe the team as well. After thinking through out the night and even a good portion of the next day? I decided to place the request in to have The Megatokyo 2041 Project moved from moddb.com to indiedb.com since we're actually a working dev team/studio nowdays.
Currently right now, Joeseph and Paulo are working on The 2 Maps for the Beta and well, for testing as well. The Sprinter and The Spinner Firebee and Yellow Jacket and the Hornet will need to be slightly altered texture wise as I decided it would be best to go back to having an orignally designed Police Logo to represent the ADPD for this alternate history/universe. Chris, our new vehicle modeller has been nothing but top shelf on his workflow, even under pressure. The work on creating the yellow jacket is completed, now the hard work. Uvmapping and matching up the vehicle color match up from the firebee to the Yellow Jacket to an overall degree, then the work of the animating and rigging.
Shelke, and Joe our programmers will finally have a chance to jump in and start programming the vehicles and weapons and then we'll be moving on to the player characters while we dicuss who is goign to be who in the voice acting dept. Whether that will be from within the team or will we outsource thru epic and Jp's forums as well modd/indiedb's forums in search for the right voices and attitudes.
Shelke himself is fairly new to the team, but he's established on the web as well and has been involved with several projects already before coming to us. I'm impressed with his work and skills, plus of course his interest in manga and anime were also an added bonus. I find that working with people who have simular interests and hobbies seems to allow me to relax more and not stress over that one will leave because they don't want to do it anymore or just didn't have a real interest in the project to begin with and was just needing a project to be involved with to say "I was involved in this one team" type of statement to get thier porfolio started. I'm looking forward with working him and getting to experince his skills and outgoing nature.
