S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Way of the Wolf
Status Update #5
Summer is firmly here folks, so distractions are numerous and common!
That said, we're all back to hard work whenever we can get away from sun, swimming and drinking!
Main news this time is regarding the WotW Dev Team, which you may have already heard from the screenshot I couldn't help but release last week. This means we'll finally be able to get started properly with systems that will seriously raise WotW up beyond the ranks of all others!
On with the show!
Dev Team Update, StalkComms Overview
Way of the Wolf now has a coder!
His first project is an AMK-inspired news/Stalker messaging system that I've nicknamed StalkComms!
The idea is that Stalkers will broadcast messages and have conversations, factions will declare their triumphs and spew propaganda (as in the main picture above), and sometimes there may even be weird transmissions received from unknown sources.
StalkComms is designed to provide a greater sense of belonging to a living world, with Stalkers possibly conversing about events that may have occurred by your hand. Either that or spilling their sorrows on the airwaves on a rainy night over a bottle of vodka!
StalkComms is the first of hopefully many script-systems Way of the Wolf will introduce, and we can't wait to show off what else we've got planned.
Welcome to the team ThunderFreak!
Community Interaction Success
You guys are amazing.
Seriously, we're super-chuffed with how supportive you are for us and the mod, as we've just passed a number of milestones for our community interaction.
Your ideas, opinions and views are extremely valuable to us, helping to shape and mould the mod into a perfect combination of both our dreams and yours.
Keep telling your friends, and remember to keep up to date with development here, on Twitter, and on Facebook!
That's all for now folks, we hope your summer is going swimmingly!
