Right. First things first. The long-anticipated first beta release of Frontier is expected during Q1. Each and every day, I'm working hard at getting it beta-ready. The first beta will be only the landmass mostly done; empty of NPC's and quests. I say mostly done, because I'm actually leaving some areas to later when I do the quests. The first beta will be published in the hope that I'll get many people running around the continent, finding floaters, submitting comments and suggestions and showing support for the mod.
In the meantime, keep checking my development blog for the latest and here are some screenies for you too! Stay strong, people!
